from the times square newsletter:
Destroy your worries and bad memories of 2013 and start fresh in 2014!
Submit your bad memories, crazy ex-bosses, loathed music, over-exposed celebrities, corrupt politicians, fashion disasters and ill-fated romances – anything from 2013 to which you’d like to say “Good Riddance!”
At the event Cintas awarded an iPad and tickets to the Broadway show Mamma Mia! for the Most Creative entry.
Pearl Chan won for saying Good Riddance to 2012 – the worst year of her life. Chan took care of her chronically ill boyfriend for 2 years only to be dumped and cheated on after he recovered.
i’m entering the contest. . . . just giving you a heads up so you don’t waste any of your own time as i’m pretty sure i am going to win this one.

neon does not look good on anyone!!
the trend began with neon shoelaces – that’s what i noticed in nyc. neon shoelaces are tolerable, although not my personal preference. then came the entire sneaker – in awful neon colors. mostly orange and pink with green trending not to far behind. it almost hurts my eyes.
ridiculous looking neon “fashion” now comes in nail polish, purses, shirts, shoes and dresses. mixing neons is even worse. please people, let’s come together here – help save the reputation of my favorite city and ditch the neon!
if you want to see yourself featured in a magazine, keep on with the neon and you could end up a “glamour don’t”. lets keep the neon where it belongs – please?

while walking through times square i spotted elvis in a coffee shop. he was just sitting at the counter by the window not drinking coffee. after i walked by the window, i realized this photo op is too good to pass up and so i turned around and went in. here’s elvis:
and this was our conversation:
me: “hi, elvis”
me: “can i take your picture?”
(i seize photo op)
me: “do you work around here?”
elvis: “yes, i’m working now”
me: “oh . . . really?”
elvis: “yes. i work for tips”
