dispatch from the bridgeport train station

(Wonderphone lets me access my e-mail account, and you can write posts to Blogger via e-mail. Put the two together, and I can post from the train station, which is what I'm doing now. But why post? To be entertaining? Because I've got something to say? No. I just want to cross Connecticut off the list of states from which I've done blog posts. There, done.)

Oh no, why hate Connecticut? It is the land of nutmeg!

my brother, sister and i were all born in different states. believe me, my dad called me a nutmegger my entire childhood. i don't know why my sister, born in utah, and brother, born in michigan, did not have similar names.

i was born in new haven, which is something of a dump. my friend henry suggested that i could be a dumpling rather than a nutmegger.

i like nutmeg just fine. and conneticut does have some yummy pizza. and i guess i do love the musk exhibit at the peabody museum. maybe i just hate prospect street.

New Haven is only a dump if you are not a racialized minority. If you are white and upper class you have plenty of enclosed space surrounding the perimeters of Yale University by gothic-looking fences designed to keep the unruly masses out.

New Haven does have great pizza along with a lot of personality. I think my favorite part is the walk up Orange St. to East Rock, especially in the fall, but I also love Wooster Square in the springtime and all the cheap and good ethnic eateries on Chapel St. all year round.

new haven does suck if you are a racialized minority. i'm not, but i do have eyeballs stuck in my head. that's part of the reason that i hated living there.

new haven also had some of the most expensive and worst produce i have ever been forced to buy. i did like singing roadrunner when i went to the stop 'n' shop, still, i usually shopped at shaw's. slightly better veggies, in my opinion.
