Manhattan isn’t the center of the universe?

I was particularly upset to learn that Jeff gets his new New Yorker every week on Tuesday, while I get mine on Wednesdays. What’s the point of living in Manhattan if I get the New Yorker the day after people in fucking New Jersey?

We have a pretty reliable Tuesday delivery here, too. Maybe you get it later because they assume you Manhattan kids lived all of it first already.

And I think NYC is starting to turn you into a world-class cusser. Fuckin’ yeah!

Well, in Matt’s defense, there are lots of people who use expletives and “New Jersey” in the same sentence.

It even gets here to Virginia the same day you receive yours in Manhattan; [my] Jeff’s copy arrived here yesterday.

I’m in Manhattan, and mine arrives on Monday.

Speaking of The New Yorker, how cute is this week’s cover (with the igloo doorman hailing a taxi)?

… or, now that I look at the title of the cover art (“Mush!”), I see that perhaps he’s hailing a dogsled. 😉

I get mine on Fridays or Saturdays. Sometimes it’s even on the newstand before I get it. What’s the point of that?

Matt: Just stopped in the site to see how life was treating you. Found this entry rather humorous. Hope all is well with you.
