General Update

Chris Monaco calls me last night for a late night Philly Cheesesteak. So I run off with him and we go to this place on Third Avenue and 34th Street called Carl’s Steaks. By far the best cheesesteak I’ve had in the city. In any case, I love that there’s a place I could go to for that so late. Only in NYC.
I’m addicted to my new iPod nano. I’ve found myself listening mostly to The Whites Stripes and Radiohead.
John changed his hair appointment so I didn’t meet the woman that he had intended to introduce me to.
My new job is good. Something odd about the place is that I’m required to make my own drinks because there’s no bartender. During my service career, I’ve showed no interest in learning about how to mix drinks. But I’m learning, slowly but surely.
Also I’m still in that honeymoon phase with my chef/owner. I gather he’s a funny and particular boss, and I’ve been able to avoid a large far. I know I can’t be mistake-free, and I know there’ll be a point when he yells at me, I’m just concerned about the first time.
I made dinner reservations for my birthday at Annisa. Eight people. 6:30. Should be fun.
Rebekah and I saw the Em’s show this afternoon. It was a show about Frank Lloyd Wright and his third wife Olgivanna. I had no idea what to expect, but was surprised by how engaging it all was. It might have something to do with the subject matter (I’m a rather large admirer of Mr. Wright’s work), it might have something to do with Em. It’s probably a little bit of both.
I met Em's family—father, mother and brother—today. Very sweet. Her father, who I recognized from his film work, and I met in the ticket line. He had a firm handshake.
