Accomplishment is fish in the freezer and going paperless

My weekend involved a fish transaction in front of MSG, 90 gallons of paper, a scanner, and an industrial-class shredder. Good weekend in my book.

Had, what I consider to be, a productive weekend

Him: Are you around? I went fishing this weekend. How much stripped bass do you want?
Me: Sweeeeeet!
Him: Want to meet me in front of MSG near the taxi stand around 4?

Went down to Madison Square Garden this past Sunday, fighting off tourists, and met up with my buddy Steele for what could easily have passed for cocaine transaction but instead involved striped bass. We chatted about lakes and rivers, exchange some advice, he told me about and then I was on my way.

As I stood in front of the queue for taxis and watched people come and go with their luggage I thought it pretty funny that I was probably the only one there for a fish-related transaction.

Well, it is NYC, I could be wrong. You never know.

As for the rest of my weekend, when the guy came to fix the radiator last week, realized that I have boxes and boxes of old files and books still.

So I I bought this scanner and went to town on them.

In all, I filled three 30 gallon recycling bags full of paper.

Now I’ve got fresh fish in the freezer and 90 gallons less paper in the house. Not quite paperless but close.

A pretty good weekend if you ask me.

You may disagree but when you turn 40, these are big accomplishments. Big.

Location: in a room with -90 gallons of paper
Mood: accomplished
Music: But I know my lines and my graphs and my math

I have yet to learn how to cook fish. I know, I fail as an Asian. Also I’ve been trying to figure out how to move to NY without going completely broke lol

Heya, Hazel!

Fish isn’t that tough if you have one solid recipe to work with. I use the Alton Brown lemon and caper recipe as a base and then progress from there.

Moving to NYC isn’t something you should take lightly – it is *expensive* here! I would try to line up a job first here before you even think about it because everything is going up all the time. They’re talking about a $3 subway ride soon – I remember when it was $0.75!
