Roxiticus Desperate Housewives, Tourists in NYC

I could never compete with Otilius, but...
Yesterday, instead of just the usual commute to my NYC office, I had to go to mid-town for the Advertising Research (ARF) convention. As we came up from the subway in Times Square, I felt like a tourist and snapped this photo with my iPhone.
Since I started surfing around via EntreCard (see Blog of the Day widget in my sidebar), I have seen a few blogs that review other people's blogs. There was one that I saw on BlogExplosion that just made fun of all the worst blogs she saw while surfing (like Arthur's Hall)...I had a good laugh, probably Blogmarked it, but I never ran across that one again. I'm thinking I might start to do that, but don't know if I can keep it up on any kind of regular basis....I do have a job that gets in the way. Please post a comment if you'd like me to check out your blog. Give me (and our loyal Roxiticus Desperate Housewives readers) a hint of why we'd be interested. Don't be shy, I'm not particularly confrontational, so I'll just ignore you if I think you're gross.
Anyway, I will take this opportunity to "review" Otilius (New York Nitty-Gritty), a blog I discovered through BlogExplosion and Battle of the Blogs where you'll find daily updated photographs of New York City and its environs. Over 1,000 posts to date. I couldn't find a profile on the site, but you will find some spectacular magazine-worthy photography. I picture this guy wandering around NYC all day, snapping photos...can't help but wonder about his day job.
I will close with a quote from Albert Einstein, wondering if the guy with the Albert Einstein blog has heard this one:
“When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute. But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute – and it’s longer than any hour. That’s relativity.”
