Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain!

Commute Talk (yes again)

Got on the train this morning.....some guy behind me pushes me and says hurry he can get to a seat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I turn around .....tell him to just wait! (you asshole). Geeze.
So he sits right down next to me!...yuck......!!! (nothing else case you're sitting on the edge of your chair). My common sense kicked in...and told me that this could get out of hand and he could shoot me or sompin.....(and it wasn't all that important anyway).
Come on people.......get a hold yourselves.....and stop and smell the roses!!!!

Don't Mess with My Routine :-)

I know I talk a lot about my walk to work and I’m going to speak of it again.
Walking in NYC is a lot like driving in NYC. There’s a certain rhythm to it. You have to go with the flow….weaving in and out and in between others…..and it flows nicely.
If one is not used to doing this….you’re liable to get bunked into…slowed down, angry, etc. I get bothered if one of my fellow co workers wants to walk to the train with me after work…because they interfere with my flow. I have it down pat. I know what route I’m taking, the fastest route to take….the sunny side of the street. I don’t like it when my strategic route gets interfered with. It upsets my routine.

Happy Dancing (NOT)! MONDAY

Ok , I've discovered the "Quote of the Day" page, so what???
Just makes life easier on this not so sunny Monday....
and I don't have to use my brain cells. So here ya go:

Laughter is an instant vacation.
Milton BerleUS television actor & comedian (1908 - 2002)

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.

Dr. Seuss (1904 - 1991)

Happy Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!! Doing the happy spite of the fact I turned on my ankle the other day.

Don't have much time right now but here's some quotes of the day that I liked:

Part of being sane, is being a little bit crazy.
Janet Long

And we should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once. And we should call every truth false which was not accompanied by at least one laugh.
Friedrich Nietzsche

and, last but not least:

Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.

(Who said this?) (Winner will get a prize). (Ask Just D what the prize will be, she's good at those

I Walk

The very act of walking used to make me cringe..because I'm a lazy-bones at heart. But I DO exercise and I DO walk a lot in spite of myself. I walk a mile to and from the train each morning, I walk my dog 3-4 times a day, I walk a lot at work, back and forth to other offices, I walk around the City at lunch time...walk..walk..walk..(which reminds me though, I haven't taken a walk on the wild side in a really long time) {oh well, that may be a subject for a future}

Well....all this walking, I believe, saved my butt this morning. Was exiting the side door of my house at 5Am (to WALK the dog) and missed the last step, fell, (very gracefully, ha ha) and turned on my ankle really bad. I said: DAMMMMMMMMMM!!!!! I broke my ankle!" (plus a few other expletives I won't mention here). So here I am, laying on my back in my driveway. (the neighbors probably thinking: there 's that crazy lady again, she's laying down on the sidewalk over there). I roll over and grab the side of the house and ease my body up...up....Ok Good. I'm standing. I put pressure on my foot. OK Good. No pain. I start to WALK. OK Good. I can!!! Hallelujah! Yippee! Hurrah!!!

Hmmm....nothing......didn't break pain.....walking.....walking.....

Guess all that walking strenghened up those muscles and tendons...!!!! I'm OK. I'm walking my lil dog down the block....Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'M READY FOR THAT WALK ON THE WILD SIDE NOW............!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Before My Time...But Interesting!!!! (He He He)

Comments Made In The Year 1957

I'll tell you one thing, if things keep going the way they are,
it's going to be impossible to buy a week's groceries for $20.

Have you seen the new cars coming out next year?
It won't be long before $2000 will only buy a used one.

If cigarettes keep going up in price, I'm going to quit.
A quarter a pack is ridiculous.

Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging a dime
just to mail a letter?

If they raise the minimum wage to $1, nobody will be able to
hire outside help at the store.

When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would
someday cost 29 cents a gallon.
Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage.

Kids today are impossible. Those duck tail hair cuts make it
impossible to stay groomed. Next thing you know, boys will be
wearing their hair as long as the girls.

I'm afraid to send my kids to the movies any more. Ever since
they let Clark Gable get by with saying, "damn" in "Gone With The
Wind," it seems every new movie has either hell or damn in it.

I read the other day where some scientist thinks it's possible to
put a man on the moon by the end of the century. They even have
some fellows they call astronauts preparing for it down in Texas.

Did you see where some baseball player just signed a contract
for $75,000 a year just to play ball? It wouldn't surprise me
if someday they'll be making more than the president.

I never thought I'd see the day all our kitchen appliances would
be electric. They are even making electric typewriters now.

It's too bad things are so tough nowadays. I see where a few
married women are having to work to make ends meet.

It won't be long before young couples are going to have to hire
someone to watch their kids so they can both work.

Marriage doesn't mean a thing any more; those Hollywood stars
seem to be getting divorced at the drop of a hat.

I'm just afraid the Volkswagen car is going to open the door to
a whole lot of foreign business.

Thank goodness I won't live to see the day when the Government
takes half our income in taxes. I sometimes wonder if we are
electing the best people to Parliament.

The drive-in restaurant is convenient in nice weather,
but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on.

There is no sense going to Lincoln or Omaha anymore for a
weekend. It costs nearly $15 a night to stay in a hotel.

No one can afford to be sick any more; $35 a day in the hospital
is too rich for my blood.

If they think I'll pay 50 cents for a hair cut, forget it.

Know friends who would get a kick out of these? Pass it on!

AWWWW.......AIN'T IT CUTE??????????
(it's a bat)
Borrowed from another blog....just had you Canada)

Sweet Dreams


HAPPY MONDAY! (even though it's Tuesday). I had yesterday off so today is my Monday.
I had a very philosophical conversation last night with a friend of mine, and the moral of the story came down to "One does not need to be be blonde, to have a stupid moment".

Happy Holidays to you and yours!

S L O W D O W N ! ! !

I drive myself crazy. I work in New York City and I walk about a mile after getting off the train to my office. It's in a very nice "looking" part of the city and i usually enjoy my walk. I keep myself busy by looking at people. I like to look and watch. I am not a stalker. Just a casual observer. I look to see what people are wearing, how their hair is styled, the colors or non-colors worn. Then I make my lil critique and approve or disapprove and decide what would look better or whether I should get 'one of those' or that would look better on me. I also look at their faces (something that is NOT done in NYC, no one ever looks directly into your eyes) and see what expression they have, see if their eyes are alive or not. It totally amazes me that there can be so many people in the same place and the same time and do not even acknowledge one another's existence!

WE'RE ALL MOVING TOO FAST...........SLOW DOWN!!!!!!!!! , my brain shouts out to them. They can't hear me i'm thinking maybe, just maybe, the spirit that is New York, will catch wind of my brain waves and pass it along.

Hip Hip Hurray!!!!!!

OK....I'm back in case you haven't or didn't notice, I was in a sort of mourning period because my friend, Not Hannah, decided to close down, shut off the world, write no more on her blog!!!!!! She was my blog idol!! She couldn't do this to me, let alone the rest of the blogging world! (do you think i use too many exclamation points?, there was a Seinfeld episode on that lol). Sorry I get sidetraced easily. LOL. Well I hear she's back in business. Yeah!!! GREAT! FANTASTIC! WONDERFUL! MARVELOUS! STUPENDOUS! (yes and i also get carried away). Check her out:

April Fools and Sleep

Geeze, where have I been? It's been a while since I've posted...and i'm really pissed I missed April Fools Day! (oh what a fool am I)! Damn.

Anyhoo, my only gripe today is getting used to this hour ahead business. I really didn't think a lousy hour would affect me the way it did. It's just like jet lag. I wasn't able to fall asleep like i usually do which resulting in my ass dragging all week. Maybe today I'll be caught up with it.
