Leave their weary paths and die
I know that I am like the rain
There before the grace of you go I.” —Simon & Garfunkel

Makes me want to move to Manhattan every time.
I’d hate to burst your bubble, but you’ll never catch the Cash Cab. They cast for the show. I was cast for the show, along with a friend. They put you through this clever ruse where they tell you you’re going to be on a different show, then hail a cab for you to go to the filming location, and lo and behold, it’s the Cash Cab!
I saw right through it, though. I was telling people before it happened that I was going to be in the Cash Cab.
And no, we didn’t win. We got kicked out 3 blocks from our destination with $550. Tragic.
Oh man… my sister is going to be SO disappointed.
What a great show…is it still on?! Amidst my House, SVU, Glee, SYTYCD, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Bored to Death, Gossip Girl, Intervention, Real Housewives, Lie to Me, Mad Men madness (yes I have all those shows in my series manager), I hadn’t noticed if it’s on!

My shrink once quoted this to me….
This new model suggests that it’s a mistake to understand these “risk” genes only as liabilities. Yes, this new thinking goes, these bad genes can create dysfunction in unfavorable contexts—but they can also enhance function in favorable contexts. The genetic sensitivities to negative experience that the vulnerability hypothesis has identified, it follows, are just the downside of a bigger phenomenon: a heightened genetic sensitivity to all experience…
…This is a transformative, even startling view of human frailty and strength. For more than a decade, proponents of the vulnerability hypothesis have argued that certain gene variants underlie some of humankind’s most grievous problems: despair, alienation, cruelties both petty and epic. The orchid hypothesis accepts that proposition. But it adds, tantalizingly, that these same troublesome genes play a critical role in our species’ astounding success.” —The Science of Success - The Atlantic (December 2009) (via psychotherapy)
