Why you shouldn't use Crayola Window Crayons in the shower.

I recently heard about these crayons Crayola makes for writing on glass and in the process of finding a local vendor for them I learned about bath tub crayons. Of course, when I went to Office Depot all they had were the window crayons. I figured they'd  be just as good in the shower, right?  Not so. While the tracing of my own face I did on the mirror before I turned on the water survived, the drawings I did on the bathroom tile *during* the shower melted real quick. Ah well. Anyone know where I can find bath tub crayons?

NYC Under Snow pt2: Subway Shots and The Garment District Wears White Before Spring

The only pics that really need a caption in this bunch are the ones on the train. At one point, on the Downtown A, the train slowed and stopped so I took a few pics of the train we were passing by at the time.  Luckily, we didn't stop for long and I was only ten minutes late to my dayjob.

The rest of the pics are Midtown Manhattan in snow. Kinda pretty, huh?

NYC Under Snow (01/27/11 edition)

My neighborhood looks very winter-wonderlandy this morning. I'm guessing about 6 inches fell. Maybe 8?  The only plowed street in this batch of pics is Broadway. Bennett (the street people are walking down the middle of) may have seen a plow at some point before the snow stopped but 193rd and 192nd, definitely didn't and while the sidewalk outside my building was shovelled not all sidewalks were.  Still, it's a gorgeous morning in NorMa* (North Manhattan) this morning.

*I'm 99% sure I'm the only person who calls Uptown Manhattan that.

The snow is falling on NYC BIG TIME. Just look at these pics...

This is the closest I've ever seen to a white out in NYC. Will post some video next.
