Further favorable portents....

One of my favorite things to do is to take evening walks through the city observing the late night quiet. This was really effective in SoHo where I grew up -- Before it became the Eurotrash bar capital of the world there was nothing there but art galleries which closed by 7pm which would render the neighborhood completely desolate.
I now live in Brooklyn, and I go on late night walks less often (since I work nights and don't come home until 2am as it is), but I still really love it. (Especially with the addition of my ipod shuffle--Thanks JP!)
I was restless last night and I thought a nice start to my year would be to walk around and also scrounge up some food since I had nothing in the house. I took an hour long walk through Park Slope and then stopped at my local diner where I frequently pick up dinner or lunch to go since I never have food in the house and my weird hours make cooking next to impossible. I ordered the totally self-indulgent grilled cheese with bacon and tomato and talked to the old Greek counter guy while I waited. When my order came he refused my money and wished me a happy new year.
This year is looking up already.
