As long as I’m spamming every platform I have - if you’re in New York (or want to move here) and are looking for a sublet, or know somebody who does, hit me up.  We’ve got a room opening in our apartment from May through November.

Now on one level I haven’t thought about this song for years and on another my brain spits up a bit of it every single time I go out to buy milk
