this morning dash was laying upside down on my lap, as he likes to do. i was checking the weather on my iphone, and put it momentarily on his tummy. apparently, he was cool with it. i think he looks a little bit like a high-tech version of a cat- lcd screen optional... :)

a few weeks ago zach and i were heading home on the train- and made a transfer at atlantic ave/pacific st. on our walk through the station to the R train, we came across my favorite subway performers yet! a pink gorilla and a big blue character, somewhat

i often walk by this house- it is only about two blocks from my apartment. i'm not really sure why it is pink. it always makes me smile though. i think it would be funny when you are ordering delivery food or telling friends how to get there for the first time. you know, its the first pink house on the left. :)
i read on the gothamist that the owner is a 90 year old man who painted the house in 1968.
In addition to studying at home for my architecture exams, i have been doing a little library studying. the library at Pratt Institute has several of the books that I need, so in the spirit of frugality- i have been reading there. the library is so pretty. i love the glass floors. it is also really cool because the stacks extend between the floors- so you can glimpse down between the books into the floor below. in other interesting tidbits- there is a pen machine. i suspect that it does not work- but is still very cool.
i have been studying for the ARE- the Architecture Registration Exam. There are 7 tests to take under the new version of the test. The kitties think that they should help with the studying. Dot especially likes to lay across my notes when i am sitting at the desk. sheesh.
