We went to the Bronx Zoo for Erik's birthday today. Karen still fears all primates, Erik still thinks they're adorable. We'll just agree to disagree.*
*until they figure out how to get out of their cages and kill us all. I'm just saying . . . (Also, Erik turned 35 today and doesn't get my Fresh Prince reference . . . old people!)
*Courtesy of "Inside the Apple", it's really the gift that keeps on giving, right? Right?
Spoiler Alert!: Rich people on Wall Street are still rich and don't want your crappy bargain clothes, no matter what your misguided ideas of "justice" are . . .

New York: I don't know. Probably because it doesn't belong here. I'm kind of on his side.
Los Angeles: But, hello? Wheel of Fortune, ahem. Biggest. Game show. Of all time. And Pat Sajak? His talk show was way underrated. Although, it was a little before my time.
New York: Fine, L.A. But why do you wear your pants so tight? Also, you're a jackass.

Did you know that this building pictured above is really called the Fuller Building, completed in 1902 by the Fuller company? It's true! People started calling it the Flatiron building because of it's shape and the name stuck. So the poor Fuller company spent all that money on a creative design to bolster name recognition and it didn't work at all. Fascinating! Right? Right? Yeah . . . Erik had a similar reaction. Karen isn't sure why someone would buy her a book full of interesting facts if they don't want to constantly hear about them?
Don't get me started on what 23 Skidoo means!

last time, alas we're going to keep looking. Side note: don't let the giant sombrero out front fool you, it's a little kitschy on inside.

Also, Jen arrived bearing Jerry (hint: for future travelers who cool their heels at the Burgs'). We'll see you next quarter, Jerry Express! Toot-Toot! ....or just hurry up and move here already.
