Haven’t had a day off since last July and am a little wiped out. Just booked a week in a suite at the W Vieques, however, so that’s nice.

Wife: You are NOT cooking that in my stove Me: You mean the stove that I bought? Wife: No, the stove that WE bought, which makes it mine

E: (spraying fragrance on her wrist) what do you think of this? Me: the top note is much too floral for my liking. What is that, lilac? E: You sure you’re straight?

2yellows: Julie could use our help. As you know, Julie is currently undergoing radiation treatments to her brain for stage IV breast cancer. She has been fighting this battle since April 2010 and has shared it with us along the way. She will continue chemotherapy and whatever treatments are needed…
Ran into an old pal on the street this morning. Me: Dennis, what’s happening man? D: Sammy, how are ya? Me: Great man, you? D: Terrible. Lost the loft, lost my kid, lost everything. Me: Sorry to hear man. But you look good. D: Fuck that. I’m back on the methadone, I got Hep C and Cirrosis. Going to be dead within the year. Can you believe I’m back on the methadone?
Sorry, I guess?
Yeah, um, for the person who got super offended by my Rothlisberger post? Sorry. But it’s not a “rape joke” in that it’s making fun of rape, it’s making fun of the (alleged) rapist and refusing to stop calling him out on it. If you (or anyone) is offended I apologize. As you are SO serious about the subject, I’m sure you are actively supporting this...
It's like I don't even know her
Wife: Oh wow, it’s that Skrilex guy! Me: You know him? Wife: Well duh, he’s the dub step guy she proceeds to make weird noises as she hops around the apartment Me: Huh. Didn’t know you were aware. Wife: Yeah, he DJ’ed that party the other night, the one I wanted you to go to? Who knew.
The woman was an incredibly talented singer, no question about it. She lived a life tormented by addiction, and it’s terribly sad that she never overcame that. Her passing is unfortunate and I don’t want to shit all over her death. But Whitney Houston was an asshole. Sorry, but it’s true. Now, she may not have been one her entire life, but for the several months I worked...
Drugs are in the air
Was shopping at the Union Square Greenmarket today when I saw a young crusty couple stagger past, just stoooooooned on heroin most likely, barely able to stand. Then I saw another guy on the corner of 14th and Fourth Ave in the same condition, just hanging on to the wall for dear life. At the liquor store on Avenue A I saw yet another couple who couldn’t be any more obvious about being on...

brianvan: Michael Powell at the Times delivers a no-nonsense appraisal of the current “scandalous cost overrun” state of the WTC site and finds that where there’s smoke, there’s two loudmouth self-obsessed governors trying to start a fire. The article is well-structured and well-researched, and, most… I think the article did a fine job of exposing the recent grandstanding for what it...
Who Needs Television?
Was just walking Moe when I witnessed a Lincoln Navigator pull up and park like a boss. Backed in, straightened it out, two moves and it was parked with two inches to spare on either side. Major pro move. Door opens and a pretty blonde woman gets out. She takes three steps, snaps off her heel, falls and rolls onto her back where she cackles hysterically on the sidewalk. When I leaned down to...
Who wants free shoes?
Specifically, a pair of these: http://www.uggaustralia.com/mens-kaldwell-casual-mens-chukka-sneakers/1000726,default,pd.html Was given a certificate for a free pair at a fashion week party last night but they just aren’t my style. Anyone interested/in need? aaaaand they are gone.

Well, now that we've established that...
I now know what it sounds like when my neighbor randomly decides to start playing his electric guitar, loud and not terribly well, for about a half hour. Outside. While I’m trying to work. He now knows what it sounds like when someone lights and M80 and drops it out the window. Right next to him.
Suspension of disbelief
So I finally got around to watching Dead Snow. Zombie movie, I’m good. Norwegian Nazi zombie movie and I’m totally buying in. But a scene where a drunk fat guy announces he is going to the outhouse to take a dump and is followed there by a super hot Norwegian girl who gets naked, climbs on his lap and does him? Now, my friends, you have my attention.
If anyone ever tells me there was a better...

Wal Mart is usually full of assholes, isn't it?
jessissarcastic: So they should definitely carry NY Giants stuff, right? Damn I love her You do realize the number of Wal Marts in NYC is zero, right?
