In Jersey City I'm lucky if I can see the moon most nights. I doubt I'll see any of this (sadly).

I had a few, "Hey, there's... a plane on the way to the Philly airport" moments. I guess it looks much better at some of the beaches, NW, or out in the Barrens.

Since I quit smoking, I don't spend enough time outside away from computers.

I never get to meteors or shooting starts or fireworks, or executions of accountants.

Hahaha, when I first moved to my condo, I used to go outside and have a cigarette and chat with my next-door neighbor. Then I quit about three and a half years ago. One day I could hear another neighbor talking to my next-door neighbor, and I thought, Gee, I haven't talked to Rita in a long time because I don't smoke anymore. Then it dawned on me--I COULD go outside EVEN WITHOUT A CIGARETTE and talk to Rita! Amazing but true. And I did.
