Then the people make neat little lines around these spots. That's nice too. But then when a train comes, people on the line who don't want that train just stand there, and everyone else on the line has to figure out who's not moving and then chaotically stream around them.

Take me to your ivory tower.

I like novels that take place in boarding schools (or in colleges that feel like boarding schools). I've been to Brakebills, Ault, Hampden, Devon, the Concent of Saunt Edhar (totally counts), the University of Missouri, Enfield Tennis Academy, and Hogwarts.* Where should I go next? [more inside]

Cat House?

Can anyone recommend a good pet boarding facility in New York City? When in I lived in California, I used a place that let healthy kitties run and around play during the day. I would like to find something similar in NYC (basically a place that doesn't keep the cats locked up in a cage 24 hours/day), but Google is failing me.
