I read your blurb on Dzuunmod's journal... you sound like you'd be a good read. Want to be friends?

Very.

I'm so obsessed that I have a subscription to Time Out New York delivered to my house weekly.



In Michigan.


I'm so obsessed that my office at home is NYC themed with black and white skyline photos on the walls.

I'm so obsessed that in my office here at work I have an MTA New York City subway map on the wall of my cube.

I'm so obsessed that I used to travel there every chance I could just to be there and live there, even if only a week at a time.

I'm so obsessed that I'm a member of 5 freaking NYC LJ comms, the Yankees are my 2nd favorite baseball team (after Detroit) and the G-men are as close to a favorite NFL team as I have.

oh!!

The clincher is right here.

I AM SO OBSESSED that my cell phone number is a 212 area code. That's Manhattan's area code.

I need help. Please. Send help.

You have me beat! I have some posters and a map of manhattan on the back of my door.

I spent my first week there in August and hope to do it again.


the 212 is the clincher though... how do you even go about doing that??

WHY DON'T YOU LIVE THERE YET?

I wanted an iPhone. While I was at AT&T I asked them if I could "in theory" have a home address and phone number (NYC) but a billing address in another state (MI).

They said I could if I had a business plan. With the possibility there, I got excited and asked if they had any 212 numbers. He didn't. They were all taken.

I checked eBay and saw that people were selling 212 numbers like mad there. I ended up snagging my number for like $15 or something.

I get the prepaid sim card in the mail and so I go to AT&T with my phone number in hand. Then in order for them to transfer it to my account with them I had to supply an NYC address. I looked up a guy with my last name in Manhattan and used his address, pretending it was my home address.

That part didn't matter, it was a technicality because my bill comes to my REAL home here in Michigan.

...aaaand away we go!


oh, why don't I live there? Long story short, too many family ties and now with my little daughter, I'm not moving anywhere that takes me farther from her.
