America? What? Are you insane?

Carly is voted off and whiney Brooke, and Jason, who isn’t even trying, stay? Really?? Oh America, America, America. What are we going to do with you? First you vote Bush into office. TWICE. (Still haven’t recovered from the shock of that.) And now this.

This is Hector’s Diner. Me and my friend Tim have started a monthly diner-crawl, and this is where we began. It’s at 12th Street and Washington. It’s right under the highline, (the old elevated train tracks) in what was once a completely dank and unpleasant (but interesting) neighborhood that is now quite fashionable. But Hectors has that old New York feel. I should have taken a picture of the outside, because it has just about the most unassuming storefront ever.

  1. Just remind them to order anything but the veggie burger as we (you) found out. Stick with burgers, sandwiches, great french fries, and excellent spanakopita. Good diner-y ambiance and cheap!

  2. Great photo. Even the expression on her face.
    Re: American Idol… I lost all faith when they let Michael Johns go, so I can’t say I’m surprised. But honestly America. What the ????

  3. That woman was the worst waitress ever in the whole wide world. Or, she was having a spectacularly bad day. It didn’t stop me from tipping her well (former waitress).
