To be honest, I'm not really sure what the problem is, since the ID expired a few months ago, and they scanned a barcode on the back of it any time I entered Brookhaven. Also, I'm not quite sure why the DOE is even looking at Facebook and, assuming they do, how they found my profile out of all others. Although, as the following picture shows, I suspect that we may have discovered a major source of government ineffeciency.
In any case, rather than having the full force of the DOE's security SWAT team on my back, my Brookhaven National Laboratory ID is no longer my Facebook profile picture. Instead, it's this:

My new husband and I have a difference in religious belief. I believe in divine providence and he doesn't. Usually I feel that this works to my advantage, seeing the revealed hand of God doing kindness for me every day! However, since we have gotten married and I have moved to Washington Heights, this belief in divine providence has had an unforeseen ramification. You see, more recently my relationship with God seems to depend on my parking spot.
I can already see the Washington Heights residents nodding and smiling because they are familiar with this phenomenon, but let me explain for the non residents. Basically, parking in the heights is very fickle. One day you will show up at 7pm and there is an awesome parking spot in front of your building and the next day (Which incidentally sometimes turns out to be a day you need to get home super quick) you will show up at 7 and you will drive around for a half an hour and have to park several blocks away and then in a spot in front of a school where you have to get up extra early to move your car by 7am so you are not blocking the school you are parking in front of.
Now I KNOW you have to be thankful for what you have, but God is omnipotent and I personally think that the Creator of the universe that hooked me up with the super cool apartment can also find me a parking spot every night at my desired time and location. Right?

For all those who had not noticed, they had their own table with the number 1.61803. This number does have significance and is known as the Golden Ratio. It is famous for its asthetic qualities.
I will not say how I got a hold of this placecard but I would like to thank my Dad.

Mazel Tov, Mr. and Mrs. Lansey. To make this more clear than Yoni’s post from this Sunday, Mazel Tov to Mr. and Mrs. Eli and Stacy Lansey on their marriage this Sunday. I would also like to wish a Mazel Tov to the whole Mishpacha (including of course myself). There really is not anything I can say about the wedding until we get picture so, I won’t say anything else.

Turns out Lucy is quite large, the brochure says 6 stories tall.
Written on the side of her leg* I found a lovely note.
*This note may or may not have actually been found in a shady casino staircase not anywhere near Lucy or her leg.
Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Lansey
