Eastern seaboard

Internet friends, I'm sorry I haven't written more. It's been a crazy few weeks. After my last post in NY, I went to a wedding in Vermont, had a week of camp in Massachusetts, and drove (well, passenged) through five other states to DC, whereupon I subwayed to Virginia where I am now living for the next few months. In honor of my grand eastern tour, I invite you to head over to Twitter and check out the hashtag #famousforyou. The overlap between musical theater fans and Rhode Island fans in my followers is fairly impressive, though unsurprising. And in case you didn't know, pencils come from Pencilvania, vests from Vest Virginia, and tents from Tentesee.

You know you're back in NY when...

Overheard at the Metro North station in Hartsdale, NY, while on my way into the city from Grandma's:

"Bubbe's taking me to get her name tattooed on my butt."

This was followed by a conversation about how many other relatives either didn't know she had any tattoos, or also wanted their names on her butt ("my butt's big, so I can fit all of them").

It's nice to be home?
