65 Degrees and the countdown begins

Okay, today is December 3, 2009 and it is currently 65 Degrees in NYC. That means I left the house without a jacket which may come as a surprise to many of you. I enjoyed my walk to work this morning and for the second day in a row, walked right by Mario Batali. Today he was with his kids hailing a cab. Once he dropped his kids off at school I imagine him going to the market and cooking up a big breakfast. Then he calls me and invites me over to try this new omelet he's come up with. Gwyneth Paltrow is there as well and then the three of us hop into a convertible and cruise around the city.

December 3rd...that means that in 17 days I will be turning 29. 28 was a great year but I know that 29 will be great as well. Check this out:

Twenty-nine is:

* The number of days February has in leap years.
* The number of letters in the Turkish,[1] Finnish, Swedish,[2] Faroese,[3] and Norwegian[4] alphabets.
* The designation of Interstate 29, a U. S. freeway that runs from Missouri to North Dakota.
* In the name of the town Twentynine Palms, California, also the name of the adjoining Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms, affectionately referred to by Marines as "Twentynine Stumps".[5]
* The number of suras in the Qur'an that begin with muqatta'at
* The highest possible score in a hand of Cribbage.
* The highest possible score in a hand of Khanhoo.
* An album by Ryan Adams.[6]
* The track the Chattanooga Choo Choo leaves in the Glenn Miller song.
* 29th Regiment of Foot, a former regiment in the British Army.
* The retired jersey number of Rod Carew
* The Olympiad number of the 2008 Summer Olympics
* The number of the French department Finistère
* The amount of attributes existing according to The Strokes in You Only Live Once.
* The retired S.L. Benfica shirt number in memory of Miklos Feher.
* The number every woman in the "wrong age" claims to be. According to "The Nanny".
* The number of CMS Baseball Star John "Zach" "Jay-Z" England
* The number "Weird Al" Yankovic uses frequently as an inside joke.
* The number of Knuts in one Sickle in the fictional currency in the Harry Potter novels.

See, it's going to be a very good year. Weird Al uses it as an inside joke? I mean, come on.

How cool is this? A bowling alley discovered in a building in Queens.

Have you read up on how facebook's new privacy changes will affect you?

This just made me laugh. I don't know why.

Bloggers, get something for free? Well be sure to let us know.

Well according to these folks, we could actually get a wintry mix today. Hope you enjoy the weather, Skippy.

I'm sorry to say, but the number Weird Al uses as an inside joke is not 29, but 27. We even think he used 27-point type for the title on one of his CD covers.
