When I was writing the first novel I didn't title the Word document what the book was actually called. I called it "Cookie Bookie." I guess I didn't have a title when I started working, but even after I had a title, there's something nice about sitting down to work on something you probably feel crappy about and resentful towards (if you're a writer, you feel this way all the time, right?) and instead of it being called what it is, it's called "Cookie Bookie," and you can pretend for a second you are about to continue a yarn about an old-fashioned green-visored bookie who deals entirely in cookies, and the consequences of his unorthodox business practices.

I've started work on the next one. I know what it's called, but that doesn't matter. What matters is the Word document is called "The Long And Pudding Road."


There will never be enough halal stands and taco trucks for my taste. If it were up to me all traffic on every road would be just food trucks, and they would all be stopped and open for business. A street-food society where the only three condiments are white sauce, hot sauce, and barbecue sauce, and we are all appreciative drunks with five dollars in our pockets moving among good-smelling smoke clouds.

Also: I think I enjoy saying "hi" to the kebab guy on the busy corner near my apartment more than I enjoy love, or food itself.


I did my taxes today on my laptop at the library. I recommend it. You can look around at the library and go "I guess it's okay if there are more of these," and pretend semi-successfully it's the only place the money's going.

Have you ever been to the dosa man at Washington Square Park? Not halal or tacos but a similar feel. I used to go there all the time and loved the guy who works it. I almost feel bad for getting a 9-5 and not being able to go anymore and never saying bye! He's the best.

in phoenix there is very little. sometimes there is a mexican guy on his bicycle selling corn, but those times are rare. a shame. i need to come to new york.
