Haiku I love NY Friday

Watched I am Legend
last night in Brooklyn, with Babe.
Terribly sad flick.

It was so far out
to see the City empty.
Poor Will Smith and Sam.

I love this City.
Don't want it to be alone.
Brooklyn bridge, broken.

Sup, G?!


Lucky me and Babe. We moved to Brooklyn and have a huge apartment with a Christmas Tree and views of Manhattan's skyline.

Lucky, lucky, lucky.

Know what train we rely on? The freaking G train. Know what happened last night? We left Nina's at 10:30 - totally reasonable! Took the 7 train to Long Island City/Court Square to switch to a G. That was 11:04. Okay, not great but not too shabby. We waiting for 20 minutes then Lo! A train approaches! Except it was the freaking TRASH train! So the G train finally got there at 1145. GRRRR. We got on, there were two drunk guys singing behind us and a homeless dude stinkin in front of us. Fine. They're allowed to sing and he's allowed to stink.

So, I watch rats scurry by on the platform, waiting for the G train to leave. It leaves and the conductor says, there is only one line on this G train right now, so we have to wait for the other train to pass us before we can keep on going. And, this train only goes to Bedford/Nostrand, where a shuttle bus will pick you up and take you rest of the way.

A freaking shuttle bus? At midnite? Nice.

Got home at 12:30. Cuz, apparently Nina lives on Long Island and I just didn't know.

Yedi's Ice Storm

OMG TOO SCARY! Look at these pictures from Jeremiah of his place in Tulsa!

Monday

I'm thinking of talking politics one day a week on this blog. Not all serious crazy style, but I do think I ought to give some political viewpoint and offer some of my thoughts as we are now in the year leading up to the race. Let's table that discussion for now, though, and just percolate on the idea a bit.
***
How bout that hail storm on Saturday night, huh? Nothing like getting shot in the forehead with hundreds of tiny ice cubes.
***
White Elephant is the most hilarious party game ever invented. Too much? Maybe. Popular items at the gift exchange I was at on Saturday night were:
  • A bottle of Patron (which I had my hands on for all of 2 minutes.)
  • The Clue board game.
  • Superbad, the DVD.
  • Pass the pigs (guess who brought that!)
Items that were not so popular?
Props to the hosts, though, as that Christmas party was clearly the best we went to.

Haiku Reality TV Friday

Dear Project Runway,
You are my new favorite
reality show.

Yesterday, I cried
when Jack had to say Good-bye.
Welcome back to Chris.

I am glad to have
found a new show to enjoy.
Thanks, Heidi! Love, Cod

burning question

How many fewer calories does an egg white and cheese on a toasted roll have than a regular egg and cheese?

Either way, it's delicious.

Avenue Q



Hahahhahahahahahahahahahahaha. That's my review of Avenue Q. I laughed and laughed and laughed. Someone said Avenue Q was Rent, with puppets. Nu-uh. Unless Rent wasn't really a tear jerking musical about a darling boy who dies of AIDS. And I do think it was.

Avenue Q (I'm always the last one to know, right? I'm sure everyone who is reading this has seen it.) has songs like " Everyone's A Little Bit Racist" and "The Internet Is For Porn." So funny, you guys. I highly recommend!

Amusement Parks

An amusement park is always fun to visit on a hot summer
babe. When you get there, you can rent a
beeper and go for a swim. And there are lots of
hot things to eat. You can start off with a hot dog on
a/an plug with mustard, relish, and rhymes
on it. Then you can have a buttered ear of boombox with a
nice sexy slice of watermelon and a big bottle of
cold red wine. When you are full, it's time to go on the
roller coaster, which should settle your chapstick.
Other amusement park rides are the Dodge-Em which has little
pencil toppers, that you drive and run into other passports,
and the Merry-Go-Round where you can sit on a big diner
and try to grab the gold shot as you ride past.

What did you guys do this weekend? Babe and I went to two count them two parties. And we got our Christmas tree. And as we were drinking California Red Wine, listening to Christmas Carols, decorating our huge enormous grown up tree I felt like I'm pretty much the luckiest person in the world.

Oh! And!

Nails, Massage, Waxation

What's your beauty maintenance ritual? Do you get your eyebrows done? Do you get your legs waxed? Mani/pedis are a must have? What about massage? Or facials?

If you said yes to any of these things, have a read of this article. I think it's fascinating.

An inside look at the Spa Industry.

(For me - it's mani/pedis every several weeks. I don't really want you to answer, though, that's more of a rhetorical question.)

Down

Feelin a little bit down today.
So here's a picture of me holding Jeremiah's sweet little girl. Cheers me up.

Also, consider watching Miss Muffy and the Muff Mob, if you have a few extra minutes! This was so hilarious back in 2002 when it first came out.

Weather, Subway, and 1 more weird thing

Weather: The wind is blowing forty miles an hour. This makes it impossible for me to make phone calls during my commute (walking from one place to another) so sorry if you've called me and I haven't returned your call (Jessicer) it's because of the fucking gail force winds. Oops. Sorry about that F bomb.

Subway: I had to let 4 trains go this morning because they were so crowded. Then some guy in Timberlands stepped on my toe. Hard. Then some East Coast Chola said "Excuse me, your bag is hitting my back." OMG then move.

One more weird thing: 1) I always confuse the word elevator with umbrella. So, I'll tell Babe not to forget his elevator when its raining. Poor Fishie.

Tagged

BFF tagged me. That was nice. Here are the rules:

1. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share seven random or weird things about yourself.
3. Tag seven random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
4. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
  1. Whenever I drink margaritas I have nightmares.
  2. I like fake fish, like cartoony fish, but the real kind bug me out. Ever since Cin and Omar left their fish with us when they moved, and one day one of them died and got stuck in the filter. Babe had to clean it. Thanks, Babe.
  3. I like watching movies on TV, with commercials, more than I like watching movies without commercials.
  4. I only have 24 teeth.
  5. Even though I'm not religious, I pray the hail mary at night and it makes me fall asleep. Go figure.
  6. I'm totally afraid of Bloody Mary, or just mirrors in the dark.
  7. If I give you a nickname, or call you by just a nickname, I'll eventually switch back because I start to think of your nickname as your real name and your real name becomes like a nickname to me. Got that?
I tag Michele. 7 times.
