what is the best place to get work done in manhattan? i usually work at nypl rose reading room but it closes just before 6.

ideally: quiet, okay to sit a while even if i only get a cup of tea. so basically like a library but open later. even more ideal: somewhere around me (hamilton heights) or west side//off the 1

there's an alice in wonderland-style decision to make at netgalley

Two men loudly talking about “the trailer....” “the trailer...” “..the trailer.” And I was confused since this is New Hampshire not LA or NY. Then I realized they were talking about an actual trailer. A physical object/home and then I was no longer annoyed

And it's so relaxing to watch because they had such a good time! they were just hippie dudes in northern cal. got to chill with carl sagen, got high (obviously although this hasn't come up yet) and litened to the white album, and they could draw like this!!! ——

Update: I have never lost my voice before but after the first 200 pages, I think I lost my voice (and still have 100 to go!) :blobcatumm:
