After a heat wave with no A/C in my room, I’m looking forward to the rain.

FYI: looks like today will be a slow news day involving falafel (as seen on Spring St)

I first saw these full-body U.S. flag pajamas during the super storm in Times Square. I recently saw them for sale at the Topman store in SoHo and kind of regret not buying them.

My new second favorite crazy-combo store in New York: Ame Ame in the East Village, which specializes in foreign candies and quality rain gear. The word ame apparently means ‘candy’ and ‘rain’ in Japanese.
I liked this statement from the store’s owner, Teresa Soroka, to the The Local East Village blog:

“I want to put an end to those disposable, cheap, ugly black umbrellas,” said owner Teresa Soroka, 30, who opened the store on Nov. 16. “They’re bad for the environment, and in a fashionable city they’re a disgrace.”

The candy selection is pretty impressive and contains a bunch of things I’d never seen before. Ame Ame also has umbrellas more compact than I’ve ever seen, though it’s hard to beat the MoMA umbrella in awesomeness.
(my favorite combo store in NYC is, of course, Banh Mi Saigon: which offers the best Vietnamese sandwiches and a selection of jewelry while you wait)
