Uni Watch » DIYD: Do-It-Yourself Disaster

Uni Watch » DIYD: Do-It-Yourself Disaster: "And speaking of DIY: Paul here. Wouldn’t you like to own one of these sweaters? You can, if you have a knitting machine, because Rick Fleck recently mailed me this officially licensed 1990 knitting guide, which provides sweater patterns for all 14 NFC teams at the time. I’ve scanned the entire guide and put the page scans here. I know exactly zero about intarsia knitting, but I would love it if someone could make a sweater based on one of these patterns.

I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say most of you reading this probably don’t know how to knit. But maybe your significant other does, hmmm? Get crackin’, guys."

The neighborhood ... ughh

Gawker - Jon Gosselin Shopping For an Apartment In Trump Towers - jon gosselin: "Today we received a tip that Jon Gosselin was roaming our city. Then we learned of a 'major' Jon and Kate announcement being made on Monday. Now we've received a tip that he's shopping for an apartment in Trump Towers.

A reader writes:

I was at my friends apt at trump towers on 66th and riverside blvd..... we were in her apt... then left to go to dinner... in the hallway was the realtor of the building and she was with JON from jon and kate plus 8. It was CLEARLY him. He had bloodshot eyes. We all rode the elevator together. He was looking at an apt on the 8th floor.

Bloodshot eyes? Ha! One of the tips earlier today said that Jon was smoking a cigarette and had a big diamond stud in his ear. Jon Gosselin is a caged tiger just waiting to be unleashed! If he and Kate are divorcing and Jon moves to the Upper West Side, we just can't wait for all the sighting tips to start rolling in of Jon Gosselin, New York City's newest Lothario, picking up young girls in bars on Amsterdam Avenue (May we suggest 'White Trash Wednesdays' at Brother Jimmy's Jon? Always a good time!)

Ladies of New York—Are you ready to be taken by Jon Gosselin?"

Bagel Day - May 15

Bagel Day-

Bagels- The actual bagels were above average. The inside was soft.. there was a decent hole. The outside was not as hard as they should be. I sampled a rye bagel.

Cream Cheese- At least 4 varieties, including the traditional and vegetable and some type that had raisins in it.

Other -
Lox - Real lox. and lots of it. Wasn't the best lox but who cares cause it was smoked salmon. yummy
Onion- thinly sliced onion... always a bonus
tomato- one sliced tomato
Whitefish salad - yes whitefish salad.. It was actually a little drier than i would normally like but not bad.

And more-
Cinnamon buns and some other cake like item

Overall - A .. the lox, whitefish salad and other items more than make up for above average bagels.

too easy

Samantha Jones Finally Gets Desperate

50-something woman: I'm looking for a book. It's called something like The Cougar's Guide.
Assistant: Err...do you know who it's by?
50-something woman: No. But I heard it just came out. The Cougar's Handbook or something.
Assistant: Well, there's not a lot I can do if you don't know the name or the author.
50-something woman: Can you do a search with the word "cougar"? Or "snare"? I think it had "snare" in the title.
Assistant: Err...okay, I can try.
