Zombie Land


Crowded trains, crowded streets, crowded roadways, people not paying attention to anything around them but their cell phones or ipods. What the hell is going on in this world? No one looks at anyone, no one says hi or good morning...it's Zombie world in NYC! That's right, zombies., pod people, all walking around connected to the mothership of technology by white earpieces or blue tooth ear thingys (which by the way, are just so not fashionable!).....we've turned into a science fiction movie except this is real life. It really gets to me sometimes.

I was on the train yesterday squished in like a sardine in a can. Some woman turns around to me to tell me quit pushing....I yell..."yeah, as soon as this asshole stops pushing me"....I usually don't loose it, but yesterday was one of those days. I'm the type of person that shows everything on my face, so anyone who looked at me yesterday knew to stay the eff away from me.

(I should have bought those monkey shoes and kicked some monkey ass!)

Peace?

Hope today is better! The Ipod generation is certainly lost in their own world.

Or you could just play the fun new game sweeping the nation: Bluetooth Headset or Crazy Person?

That has to be the most "New York" thing I've seen you post. :)

The nyc subway system will do that to anyone. The train is a great place to meet people you'd like to push UNDER it.

Go girl, the world has gone to hell in a hand basket. I play poker with lots of Ipods, one playing Jerry Garcia so loud I can hear it from his ear plugs sitting two seats away, he must have no ears left.
A good rant makes you feel better, go kick some monkey ass...

Yes I took your idiot button, seems so appropriate sometimes.....

Hi, Added a new value add to my blog this weekend - a news widget from www.widgetmate.com. I always wanted to show latest news for my keywords in my sidebar. It was very easy with this widget. Just a small copy paste and it was done. Great indeed.
