Go Eagles

GO EAGLES .. E - A - G - L - E - S !!!!!!!

Now we have to sit through 3 weeks of meaningless football.

Last week was my first 5 day week in the office since August (due to exams and travel). At least it was just one week. Only a 3.75 day week this week then off to sunny waters for the cruise.

I hope they have pie on the cruise. I do like Pie. Apple. Cherry. Rhubarb. I at one point thought that cobbler was superior to Pie. Now, I am not so sure. Discuss.

I watched Dodgeball this weekend. That was some funny stuff.

It's been a while

Quick Ike Update-

1. Took actuarial exam - weird test - open book.. time crunch.. kinda of irritating. I will probably find out about this one sooner than the last one (taken 5 weeks earlier).

2. Older brother got engaged. Mazel Tov.

3. Went to Tampa last week to run a 3 day training. Wish I could have had more time to prep material but hey, I was busy with exam and what not. Went relatively well. Didn't embarrass myself. Then again, I didn't get to enjoy the 75 degree weather.

4. Back in NYC. First 5 day work week since august. OF course, I know have a killer cold. Took some nyquil and will pass out soon.

5. GO Eagle

6. Finished the regular season in 3rd place out of 12 for Fantasy Football.. Big matchup next week in the first round of the playoffs. Go LIZARDS!!!!

7. Winter Basketball has begun. One more reason to really get in shape. I was so ready to dedicate myself this week but I am sick and it's damn cold outside.

8. Less than 2 weeks till cruise...

9. Had a salad today for lunch.... gotta do this every day and eat healthy..

10. Happy Chanukah.. I didn't have a chance to eat donuts or latkes.... phoeey.

The New Commute

The new commute. I timed it on the way home, but I will put the numbers up for the way to the office. As I am ashamed to admit, I got half lost coming out of grand central this morning and added a few minutes to the trip. Now, I know better. The next time should work out like this.

Apartment to Subway - 3 Minutes
Wait For Subway - 1 Minute
Subway from 96th to Grand Central - 8 Minutes
Subway at Grand Central to Office Building - 6 Minutes
Office Building to tiny cube - 3 Minutes
Total - 21 minutes.

off to atlanta

flying on election day

going to a one day professionalism seminar

fun fun fun

ike likes to fly


I did my civic duty and voted. Big turnout at my polling place. Showed
up at 8 am, line was so long I didn't get to vote until 9:05 am. Shame
that I don't vote in a swing state. .

Quick thoughts of the week

Dinner at Morimoto in Philly. Expensive but good. Parking surpisingly convienient.

Ike misses mini.

damn you SOA

I hate exams. I hate studying. I am so sick of this. Why, Why did I choose to do this? Why did I barely fail the exam last year - (got a 5). Now it's painful all over again. Underwriting Large Groups. Underwriting small groups. Pricing pitfalls. so so worthless.

Advertising on School Buses

Today, I was walking to the subway, past the elementary school and noticed that there was advertising on one of the school buses. Is nothing sacred? What has the country come to that we need advertising on school buses.

Quick update

1. Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I have a multitude of excuses but am too lazy to share them.

2. My roommate is unemployed and trying to be a writer. So he meets a poor grad student and a bar and goes on a date with her. I have a philosophy that poor grad students and unemployed "writers" (If a person writes a book and no one will publish it, does the tree really fall?) should not date. Why, you ask? Well it's simple, really. The combined wealth of those two individuals is very low. Based on the fact that they are probably getting some type of transfer payments from the government, ie - unemployment, subsidized health care, student loans, et. all - they should not date . While I am not opposed to social welfare programs, and I certainly think my tax dollars should go support those who need it, I do not think that the intellectually strong (smart people) should be getting my tax dollar support. If they keep dating, and end up together, they are likely to be poor and dependent on my tax support forever. They are each intelligent enough (although I haven't talked to this girl, I have blind faith that as a PhD student, she must be somewhat smart) to find someone who can support them in their ways of being a drain on society. Why can't they each date employed people who will support them. Why should I?

3. A special shout out to Fish for spending part of the weekend in good ole NYC.

4. Exams suck. What is the point of memorizing 350+ flash cards of list to spit them out later on an exam. I invoke the Chewbaca argument - "It does not make sense"

5. Why did more people not go see Team America: World Police. That was really funny and amusing.

NYT Wedding Vows from Gawker

Three parts of Gawkers look at the NYT weddings section.

insightful and hilarious.

The Strange World Of Vows - Ages

Part 2 - Professions

Part 3 - More Professions

Mean Girls is funny

I watched Mean Girls last weekend. That movie was so so funny. I was quite amused. Also, I would like to see some time lapse photo over the past year of Lindsay Lohan. I think she has the most perfect set of boobs. Yes, I wrote boobs. At least I didn't call them Boobies and so what if she is a little young. She is already 18. Just check out this countdown clock to see when she turns 19.

And to those who say they are fake- if so, then bless that surgeon.

I just watched the debate

Wow -

I feel somewhat smarter and somewhat dumber after watching the debate. My opinion on the candidates did not really change. Bush just appears stubborn to me.

I thought Kerry looked good, although he kept looking at the moderator and not at the camera. HE sometimes appears smug.

On other news, my camera (resent from after the first one got "lost") is on the way. I hope it shows up tomorrow and not Monday.

Where is my digitial camera?

I ordered a digital camera from Amazon two weeks ago. I tracked it via amazon and it was delivered to my office last friday. But it has not shown up at my desk. Our mailroom says they didn't get it. It was signed for. Where is it? I am starting to get upset about this.

Weekly Update

Ok- Sorry for the lack of postings this week -

My thoughts on the past week in NYC -
1. The convention was a pain, but not as much a pain as the hype would have had you believe. Getting to work was really no big hassle. Just extra police officers around and a little tighter security. However, the fact it was the last week of August - traditionally when people go on vacation and that many worked from home - it was not bad at all.

2. I went to the US Open this week (as the posts below indicate). From my seats, the tennis players looked like ants. Ants with very big serves and good backhands. I had a much more enjoyable time at the outer courts watching people I had never heard of. You get real close there and really appreciate the power, speed, and ability of those players. I also like free tickets and beautiful weather.

3. Work is blah. Raises and bonuses were lukewarm. What to do? At least I have a job, unlike my unemployed roommate. Then again, he isn't really trying that hard to find a real job. (Don't tell the unemployment office though, they keep mailing him checks). Then again, I am thankful he pays the rent and is much neater than me.

4. Roommate got a call back from an agent about his book. I am pleased for him.

5. I saw Napoleon dynamite this week. It was a real good and weird movie. I am not sure I get it, except that it was really really funny. Hilarious, really.

6. Watched the second season of The Office. I really like that show. But sometimes it can painful to watch. so awkward - yet so beautiful.

7. Studying really sucks especially when the weather is nice.

8. Ike is happy to visit Fish in Philly this weekend.

9. Starsky and Hutch - watched it on DVD. My advice, don't. Pretty darn horrible.

Bright Lights Big City

I just read Bright Lights Big City. It was good. very good.

New York Renaissance Faire - NYC Metropolitan Area

Today I went to the New York Renaissance Faire. We were stuck in traffic for a good half hour, had to park a mile away, and all I got to do was eat a turkey leg.

I can't believe:
1. They charge almost $20 for this.
2. The large crowd.
3. That there is no real difference between this and a street fair in new York except that in an NYC street fair, you can buy irregular socks.
4. There is a fine line between Goth and period outfits.
5. Lots of people were dressed in period outfits. Yes, a lot were employees but the scary part is that many of the people who went dressed up. The other scary part - none of those people were good looking.
6. Outfits from the renaissance show a lot of cleavage.
7. I got freaking carded for a beer. I haven't been carded in a long time, with the exception of the super-pretentious clubs downtown where they card everyone. I imagine that it was because I had a hat on, so they couldn't see my receding hairline. And the lady asked me, "have I been asked?". What if I had said yes. Then again, she did stamp me. For a beer. Ridiculous.

I also took the NJT/Metro North train back to the city. The seacaucus transfer station is nice, but you have to walk a few hundred yards too far to transfer. Totally inconvenient

On The Search for the perfect free netradio

I decided that I need some good tunes at work in order to concentrate. I am kind of sick of what is on my ipod these days as most of my music on there was music I listened to in high school or is one of my roommate's crappy techno CDs.

So I am now on a search for some good net radio stations. I have gone through and set up a station but I ranked a bunch of songs a few years ago and I don't like that music anymore but it keeps on playing it.

I have used spinner before but that was having some firewall or other problems at the office.

I have also gone through a bunch of shoutcast stations and sometimes listen to radiostorm or kcrw music or the like. Basically, I want music that has modern rock, classic rock, some pop, and also some of that artsy stuff you hear on WXPN.

Please comment with your suggestions.

Also as a small protest when our company moves offices and our cubes get cut into basically 3, I plan on using my workspace for some big speakers and a big subwoofer. Any suggestions?

when is it too late to call someone?

if someone says you call them late, what time is too late?

are there different times for land lines and cell phones?

I think 1:20 am would be too late. But not too late to text message. Yet
what if they are out of cell range so texting is not an option?

Ever have one of those days

You get up early and have a million things to do. But you end up reading the newspaper for an hour. It takes you a while to eat your breakfast. Then you end up sitting on the couch captivated by obscure Olympic sports such as: women's soccer, crew, volleyball.

Of course it feels like it is going to rain so you don't do any of those errands you wanted to do. And now it is almost 5pm and it is a lost day.

Cause really, nothing is as fun as studying for a test 3 months away at 5pm on Saturday night.

Undefeated Softball Team (Regular Season)

Softball Update-

Our co-ed team is now 12-0 and undefeated for the regular season!!!!!

Playoffs start next week.

Our game was up at Dyckman Park and afterward we went to Tubby Hook Cafe and Bar. It was a great find.

Cool view of the GW bridge, right on the Hudson river.

Sunday, August 01, 2004


of course right now it is perfectly sunny outside. I should be out playing
golf. is so so wrong. I guess this underscores the need for a
car; I would not have had to decide by 10 if we could play at 1pm.

Rain rain go away

Rain Rain-

I wake up this morning to rain. Actually, when I woke up it wasn't quite raining but after a few minutes, it had started to rain. Normally, rain doesn't bother me that much. Except today I had plans; I was going to take the train out to Long Island to play some golf. So that had to be cancelled, cause I am sure as heck not taking a $15 cab ride, a $6 train ride, and 80 minutes of transportation to see if the weather clears up.

The other thing about rain, is that today is Sunday. Today is the day when I maybe go a little shopping and then I sit on my ass for the rest of the afternoon. But the rain makes it damn near impossible to go shopping in the city. It also takes away the alternative of going to the park and reading a book. I probably will sit at home all day and study. Of course I studied a lot yesterday when the weather was just muggy so my weekend will be full of study.

Last week, on Tuesday, we also had a softball game scheduled in central park. Of course, if the game is not cancelled by 4 pm, then you have to show up at the field. I think I spent more time that day on than working. So 4 pm hits, I get an email that the field is playable and the game is on. At 5 pm, we are waiting to walk over and it's freaking pouring. We still have to go to field and of course the game is cancelled. I think I caught a cold that day walking through the rain and I can't shake it.

Till Next Time -

My Computer Died

Hard drive failure. Ike is not a happy trout. It was working saturday and then it would not reboot. Chcdsk gave the error along the lines of blah blah blah unrecoverable errors. ick.

Currently booting with knoppix and copying out as much of the data as I can to another partition. Then later this week, I will reinstall everything. Ick. Ick Ick. No fun.

A good day at work

I show up for work today at 9AM, a little behind schedule.   I do work for about half an hour when someone comes over and tells me that today is the day the interns get to go to the Met's game.  Turns out, we had extra tickets, so I left work at 10:30, went to the Mets game - Picnic area / bleachers.  After the Mets game, I went straight home. 

Every once in a while, the job can be satisfying.  Of course, I didn't bring a hat and now my forehead is very bright red.  Sunburn.  Ouch.

I Passed

Finally, passed the stupid actuarial exam.  Now, I am more than half way there.  (Sing along..  pretend you are from Jersey, which I am not, thank goodness)

Build a Bear Article

There is an article on the The New York Times > Magazine > Build a Bear stores in the mall in the New York Times Sunday Magazine.

Does anyone else find the animal shells a little disturbing. it seems to me like the opposite of a hunter. Hunter shoots animal, and then gets a bear skin rug out of the deal. Build a Bear person, takes bear skin rug and fills it with stuff.

Scary don't you think.

Netflix Rocks

I love my Netflix. Problem is that I keep getting movies that I feel I should watch but don't end up watching them. They sit here a few weeks, then I say screw it and mail them back. At least it only takes a few days to get a new movie.

The problem with Digital Cameras

I was out at a club on Saturday night for a friend's birthday. One of her
friends had a tiny digital camera and was using it to take pictures. I was
in a bunch of pictures and realized that with a digital camera, you can't
really make funny faces.

With the old traditional film camera, you could make a funny face. No one
would know until they got the film back from the developer. Now, if you
make a funny face, then people know right away. You can no longer get away
with this type of behavior.

I hadn't been clubbing in quite a while before saturday night. I kind of
remember why, and here are the reasons.
1. I don't dance. Well, actually, I don't dance very well. My friends
mock my lack of rhythm.
2. I don't like crowds. It's not so much that I don't like other people.
Yes, I guess it is true that at clubs in the city, there is an inordinate
amount of the B&T crowd. Not that there is anything wrong with living in
places such as New Jersey or Staten Island (mmm smells like landfills). My
point is that the clubs are crowded and I get pushed and bumped and I don't
like that.
3. Lines. Lines suck. Lines at the door, lines at the bar, lines at the
bathroom, lines at the coat check (thank goodness it is summer so I don't
have to check my coat).
4. Bouncers. Rude rude rude. Ego trip.

How to meet people in NYC, Part II

The trick to meeting people is through friends of friends, those people are the people that broaden your horizons.

I met my girlfriend pretty much through a friend of a friend. Someone asked me how my friend had not seen to set us up, and I explained that we really met through one of my friend's friends.

How to meet people in NYC

NYC is a big place and there are a lot of people here. But it seems that I have lived here for four years now and have not met that many new people. I am not really sure what the answer is. I do however have a lot of excuses:
1. I work a lot. 2. I take actuarial exams. Now some people might assume that as an actuary, one lacks personality, but I disagree. I think its the fact that I basically shut myself down twice a year to study for these exams. The sad part is that my passing rate is not very good. Four years, three exams. Not so great.
3. It's just hard to meet people out there.
4. None of the young people I started work with a few years ago live in the city. They live in the suburbs and commute in. That is something I just don't get

So I have come to the conclusion that you really need to meet people through other people. Some people can go out and meet people no problem but I guess I am not like that. I meet some friends of friends hang out a few times, and lose contact.

Basically, NYC is a big lonely place sometimes.

Sunday Sunday Sunday

Sunday in NYC. What to do. It's real nice outside so I should probably go and sit in the park. However, my leg still hurts a little bit from my activities on Saturday.

Yesterday, I managed to get into a fight with an escalator. Well, it was not so much of a fight as the escalator kicking my butt. See, I was at Bed Bath and Beyond and carrying new towels in a basket. I had the basket in one hand and a new light fixture (an incandescent torchiere, not a halogen*) in the other hand. So I am wearing my flip flops and I manage to slip as I step onto the escalator. So I have one leg on the escalator and the other leg up still on normal ground. The escalator is moving, as that is what it does, and I am off balance. I slip a little and get a few small cuts on me leg. Totally embarrassing. The escalator won; I lost - totally my stupid fault.

* Halogen lamps - those things are evil. They fall into the same category as Ikea furniture: great for the dorm, unacceptable in real life.

Playing Golf in NYC

I want to play some golf but have run into the following problems:
1. I don't have a car - Getting to a golf course via public transit from Manhattan leaves basically the only option as Van Cortland.
2. I don't have friends who want to play. I am kind of sick of playing as a single and going up to Van Cortland to do so.
3. My romomate won't let me borrow his car. This wouldn't solve problem #2 but it would help with #1. I would also be able to go to the driving range without going all the way to Chelsea or depending on the Randall's Island shuttle.

Happy Mother's Day

Ike says Happy Mothers Day.

Test is over

It's over baby. It was pretty smooth sailing in the morning but then the afternoon was bad. Real Bad. Like stuck on a rowboat in a hurricane with no life boat.

Then again, that was the consensus.

So we have to wait a few months to find out how we did.

Possibly the funniest thing I have read on Craigslist

So my friend posted this to craigslist. It is possibly the funniest thing I have seen on craigslist in a long long time. It is a must read.

The link no longer works - so here is the text:

Some of you may have seen an earlier version of this already. I don't care. Read it again. I've changed some of it.

Here's the deal. I'm a writer who just finished a pretty long road trip. Yes, I had a good time. Thanks for asking. Now, before I left, I thought that I paid all of my bills, which was generally true (keep reading -- I'm not asking for a handout), except I sent my health insurance premiums to the wrong address. How could I do that, you ask? It's because I'm a moron. Even morons can type words and sell them. If you don't believe me, just go to your local bookstore and ask for anything by Sean Hannity, John Stossel or (just in case you swing the wrong way), Michael Moore. Yes, he's a moron too. He chased Charlton Heston around asking him about gun control. THAT is the definition of a moron. Go ahead, look it up. This post will still be here. But anyway, I screwed up my health insurance, which isn't a real problem right now because I'm healthy. However, I would greatly like to find a woman who works for one of them big companies over yonder in Midtown or Wall Street who has spousal rights to health insurance as one of her benefits. Note that this probably gets rid of all the temps, waitresses, actors, etc. in the city, and so if you fall into one of those groups, then I'm sure you're really great and all, but I'm just not interested. I'm fairly certain that I can stay healthy and broken-bone free (a big ask) for the entirety of our courtship; however, please keep in mind that if you decide that my oh-so-glamourous life as a writer is too enticing while we're getting to know each other (think the first three dates or so) and you decide to run away from your job and spend your time on a farm in Nebraska or some other similarly flat state, I will, in all likelihood, reverse the feelings of adequacy I held for you and find another woman with health insurance. Therefore, it is GREATLY to your benefit (and mine) that you like your job. See? It's very easy. All I have is this one little requirement. If it matters to you, yes, I'm a U.S. citizen, and no, I will not help you get a green card if you don't help me get health insurance. I cannot stress the importance of your work benefit package to me enough. In that spirit, when you reply to this post, please let me know:
1. The company for which you work
2. Details on your health insurance plan (you know, things like the providers -- I figure that I'll have enough responses to this post to be choosy)
3. Your annual salary (I want to do my own analysis on the likelihood that you'll be downsized before I get your spousal benefits, and salary is one good indicator. Others, such as performance reviews -- 360 if possible -- would be nice to have, but not necessary)
4. Something else about you (so we can have a subject matter on which we may converse initially)
I'll be taking responses on a first-come, first-serve basis, so please submit early. If I don't get back to you right away, please do not be discouraged. This probably means that there's someone else out there who appears more appealling initially, but my infatuation with her might fade rather quickly. Thank you - Jorge Jesus Antonio Banderas de Souza

P.S. Everyone who's responded to this so far assumes that I'm willing to pay them money to get health insurance. I'm not. At all. I want something for nothing, and I thought I made that clear already. Ok? Good.

Studying for exams is no fun

Studying and memorizing 67 pages of lists is about as much fun as ... well I cannot fathom what else could be that fun.

I really think watching grass grow would be more interesting.

At least tomorrow night we can eat bread again.. Mmm ... pizza...

TiVo Not Working

I keep on getting an error message saying that my TiVo is out of program guide data. I try to dial in and it says "Service unavailable" or something like that. I am worried that my TiVo is broken. Is it the apocalypse?


Woo hoo . warm weather. finally. baseball season

softball - first game next week. very excited.

passover... can't eat nothing.. ike so sad cause he gets hungry.

warm weather but not warm enough for all the pretty women to emerge from hibernation. Ike says .. "Do not despair. That day will come soon."

Muenster cheese is underrated

Muenster cheese tastes very good on an omelate. Mmm. With Spinach, tomato, and onion.

Good diner experience today. Except they didn't butter my toast. I didn't order dry toast so why didn't they butter it for me.

This is a rough week for Ike. First he has to go drinking for St. Patrick's day. Then he has to go partying for the NCAA tournament.
Now it's snowing.

When will Spring come?

Random thoughts of Oscar and of Sports

Ike watched the Oscars on Sunday and had a few observations:
1. Lord of the Rings was over 3 hours long. How does it win the award for best editing? It was too damn long.
2. Peter Jackson looks like a hobo.
3. Sophia Coppola (sp?) looks like she is 14.
4. Thank goodness they don't let Melissa Rivers on the Red Carpet. Joan is so old too.

thoughts on sports:
Weak division NYUrban basketball is fun. I am iceman.
Chelsea piers batting cages are fun too.

New York Has Been Cold - Today was balmy.

Beautiful outside. Not as great though as that first day coming up , when it's like 70 degrees and all the hotties in the neighborhood break out there summer clothes. Like the commute to work, one day instead of the normal drabby gray long coats, the women break out their colors, their short skirts, and bingo... life is good.

We win

My alma matter won basketball tonight. woo hoo

27 is the perfect age

For a guy, 27 is the perfect age. You are no longer a child but not too old. Approach a woman between 22 and 35 and 27 will be acceptable to them.

Ike got a 5 on his exam. Almost passing.

He is excited that his friend mini was found. He is napping now.

Sunday, January 18, 2004

If Ike were a single man, he would think it is very hard to pick up women in winter. Ike, in his bachelor days, would try and bring a girl home. He would buy her a drink, have scintillating conversation, and they would proceed to go back to his place. But sometimes, between the time when they decided to leave and actually got into a taxi, things would change.

Ike blames this on the coat- check. The coat check gives the female way too much time to reconsider. In that time, she may, heavens no, sober up and decide going home with Mr. Ike to be a bad idea. Or a friend may convince her otherwise. In the summer, there is much less lag time. Winter is the downfall of casual sex.
Ike failed his exam. He is not pleased.
Ike had a great time skiing in Utah. The weather was cold the first day, snowy the second day and warm the rest of the week.

But it did not snow after day 2 so the skiing was not that great.

Saturday, January 03, 2004

So this is the place where I put my thoughts. Of course, now that I have created this I forgot what I was thinking.
