Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.  It’s not.
~  Dr. Seuss



simply noticing

i took the bus this week.  it was the m15 which travels up 1st avenue.  it was an enjoyable ride up 1st avenue and i did a lot of excellent people watching.  i was amazed at the lady directly across the isle from me who managed to remove a contact lens with one swoop of her finger and no mirror.  i was even more astounded when she popped the lens into her mouth, rolled it around a bit with her tongue and then placed it back in her eye.

directly in front of me sat a boy who appeared to be about 2 years old, along with his mother.  apparently in fear of bus germs, mom slathered the boys hands with a humungous sized dollop of purell and spent the next five minutes trying to rub it all in.  immediately upon the release of his freshly sanitized hands, he licked his palms and announced, “that tastes good!”





“It’s a troublesome world. All the people who’re in it
are troubled with troubles almost every minute.
You ought to be thankful, a whole heaping lot,
for the places and people you’re lucky you’re not.”
~ Dr. Seuss

just several days ago when the ny post ran a story on the  front  page  about some 28 year old guy who kept an excel spreadsheet to rate all of his dates, and then actually forwarded the spread sheet to one of his dates, i vowed for the ten-thousandth time to permanently remove the ny post from the home page on my laptop.  as ridiculous as it may seem, i,  like so many other peeps in this city, may actually be addicted to the post. that’s right, addicted.  i am an addict.  it’s really all about the headlines. (see page only in the post for more of my favs).

today’s front page:


Guard accidentally shoots self at Metropolitan Museum of Art


Step with care and great tact
And remember that Life’s a Great Balancing Act
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft
And never mix up your right foot with your left.

secret service fail

12 of the presidents ss agents were apparently sent home from their assignment in columbia for involvement in some kind of prostitution scandal.  you gotta love the way only the ny post can tell a story:

“One of the agents did not pay one of the prostitutes, and she complained to the police,”

i can’t be the only one who finds that pretty funny . . .

did you know. . .

in high school, anthony robbins, who is 6’7″ tall, was just 5 feet & 1 inch tall.  he has a pituitary tumor that secreted massive growth hormones which is the reason for his current size.  his brother is 5 feet 4 inches tall.

love him!

have you noticed that the mona lisa has no eyebrows?

manhattan is the only borough without a ‘main street’.  there really isn’t any room for  one.  wouldn’t it be funny if they changed 5th avenue to main street?

the only real person to be a pez head was betsy ross.
maybe they could use some help in the marketing department?

 the holland tunnel is a designated national historic landmark.
they must have run out of ideas for things to classify.  and i should probably go to bed now.
