ReallySmallTalk's First Annual Best of New York 2003 List
Best line to use at bars: "The thing I hate about giving large sums of money to charity is that you feel guilty for not giving them your jet and winter house. Sometimes I feel like the only thing I haven't given away is my heart, my exceptional sexual performance, and my homes in Hollywood, London, and my triplex on Central Park West."
Runner Up: "I'm dying. And I feel we never got to...make...um..."
Best feeling: Happiness.
Runner Up: Melancholy laced with passive aggressive self-destruction.
Best way to wake up downtown: Not knowing if you had to work, remembering you don't, and then finding twenty dollars in your pocket that somehow escaped your late night pocket claw which was reaching and grabbing and upon feeling the cloth and paper consistency of cash would tear the note out and thrust it at someone in the service industry. A day off and twenty dollars means you've got Starbucks money for you and the drifter in your living room.
Runner up: In Seattle confused but happy with the change of scenery.
Best New York Landmark: The dent in the sidewalk that reminds you in a really sublime way to look up and notice the poster of Brittany spears where somebody with a marking pen has made her look like a devil. And then you walk for one block trying to think about the person who marked it up.
Runner up: None. The sidewalk dent was a real clear winner in this category.
Borough Ombudsman we we're most impressed with: Terry "Cal" Calman.
Runner up: There is only one Borough Ombudsman elected every eleven years.
Best thing to do with free time in head on long subway commute: Obsess over how fast life moves and ends.
Runner up: compare self to other commuters.
