Do you ever read "Overheard in NYC" I've been there a couple of times, but those quotes just seem unbelievable! Is it really like that? Also, I was watching SaTC the other day, when Miranda moved to Brooklyn. Since you are the only person I "know" that's ever lived in Brooklyn, how did you feel about the shows jokes about Brooklyn, are they accurate! That's your homework for the day!

Oh and although they didn't write my address, its still in the article they linked too! I just want to be a famous writer, is that too much to ask for! Ha ha!

I'd have to say, Michael, that NYC really IS like Overheard in NY. Like the time I heard a Orthodox Jew tot singing the theme songs for COPS, but was inserting something in Hebrew for the "Watcha gonna do? / Watcha gonna do when they come for you?" lines, which he apparently didn't know the words for.

As for SiTC, I don't remember that ep too well, but the jokes were probably pretty accurate if you are an upperclass snob who only goes to the nicest restaurants and have friends who have $500 shoes. The next time the censored version comes on the CW11 I'll take a look.

And definitely not too much to ask for!
