Boy was it a beautiful day in New York City!!! This is a picture I took this morning from the roof of our new apartment building. Man, what a day!
We are currently moving into our new apartment. My parents have been with the movers all day, but I was only there for about an hour this morning. Basically enough time to say hello, take that picture and finish shaving off some of the stray hairs remaining on my head. Last night I took a shower and the hair really started coming out. I would stand there and rub the side of my head for a second and then look at my hand and it would not be visible beneath the amounts of hair covering it up! It was a mess.
After I was done showering there were basically just some stringy hairs left, so we took my beard trimmer to them. Unfortunately it ran out of batteries before we could finish, so I spent the night looking like a dog with a bad case of ringworm. My charger was up at the new apartment, so we had to finish up the trim this morning when I went over there. Luckily I had a beanie that covered up the patchiness of my hair when I went out in public. It was pretty funky looking to say the least! And now, since I know you are all dieing to see, here is my baldness in all its glory!
I met up with some friends from advertising school this afternoon and we went to a place called Joe’s Shanghai in Chinatown. My parents and I were told about this place by several Chinese people since we have been in the city, and it definitely lived up to the hype! Their specialty is pork soup dumplings, which I fell in love with when my parents lived in Shanghai. I find myself craving these things on a regular basis, so it was great to finally find somewhere that served them! We had to wait outside in the cold for over an hour, but it was worth it!
One final thing that I found really funny today was that when I woke up this morning with my freshly bald head, the first thing I see in my email is a message from Groupon, which is a coupon service that emails you with new offers each day. Below is a screenshot of today’s offering:
