The Charge: May 8, 2014
A fun new photography exhibit opens at the Museum of the City of New York on Thursday. Aaron Rose's photos of Coney Island feature real people relaxing, and they're great. We've got some to share, but make sure you check out the show! The Charge is at 75%.
Things are off to a bad start this morning. Besides the gloomy weather, there are delays on L and M trains, and the R trains are running on the express track. There are 30-minute delays on the PATH trains as well. There was an early accident on the lower level of the Queensboro Bridge, and it's an otherwise slow ride to work today with the rain. It's a lot to wake up to.
Minus 10 for this start to the day. The Charge is now 65%.
Oh hi, Neil Patrick Harris. The actor appears on the cover of Rolling Stone in ... well see for yourself:Neil Patrick Harris posa desnudo para la revista 'Rolling Stone'. ►ow.ly/wC7xo vía @HuffingtonPost http://pbs.twimg.com/media/BnHYBp2IEAAuckP.jpgMay 8, 2014
Plus 10 because who doesn't love Doogie Houser and/or Barney Stinson? But minus 2 for making us think NSFW thoughts at work. The Charge is now 73%.
For Mayor Bill de Blasio's birthday, he is giving the city of New York the official budget. On his 53rd birthday, de Blasio will unveil his 2015 executive budget--and he's likely to make everyone happy with the official numbers on what the teachers' union contract, right? Or the affordable housing plan? Oh god, this sounds like a terrible birthday. Sorry, Mr. Mayor--the celebration isn't even until tomorrow night. Maybe everyone will let the dad jokes slide today.
Minus 5 for the birthday letdown. The Charge is now 68%.
