Happy Thanksgiving

We will be having a turkey delivered, ready to go into the oven tomorrow. If you forgot about the turkey, don't be afraid to spatchcock a turkey. According to Martha, it will cook in 70 minutes! It looks like a lot of work and not for the weak (like me!). Kind of a rude way to honor the bird but whatever works!

Have a wonderful holiday!

Balloon Boy: Just Kidding!

I found it odd that after a day of missing your child you would hold a press conference outside of your home. I think that I would have been hospitalized from the stress of the day, not really looking to do much more than hang out with my son (even if he were named Falcon) who at one point was believed to be flying 30,000ft. in the air. The Balloon Boy's family is odd and rude to want the spotlight after making such a spectacle of themselves. I can see why he decided to spend the day in the attic.

Scary Forwards

Why do my loved ones like to frighten me with forwarded emails warning me of abductions in parking lots, how to avoid being strangled in your bed and threats of bad karma if I do not forward their spiritual emails from Oprah? Obviously I'm already paranoid of most things, I don't need new scenarios to play out in my overactive imagination (that's what my mom called it). For instance, there was one email warning people of a crying baby sound at the door. The killer would then grab you as you open the door to check on things. That's so creepy. Now if a friend drops by with their baby I'll have to make them answer a series of verification questions "just in case."

Thank you Dad for the most recent tip:
3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car,
kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole
and start waving like crazy..
The driver won't see you, but everybody else will.
This has saved lives.

How rude! Obviously if I'm ever locked in the trunk of the car... I will die of a panic attack. I won't be able to wave to anyone. I love you all but please stop scaring me. I already have Rhonda to read me the Brooklyn police blotter.

Joe Jr.'s is Closed

On Sunday, M.B. and I returned from a lovely weekend with friends at the beach.  We had to return our rental car to the Hertz in Union Square.  Since we were in his old 'hood, we literally bumped into the saddest news ever... Joe Jr.'s is closed!  M.B. had many meals with the owners (where he was known as "Cage").  This was also our emergency meeting spot in the city since everyone knows him and they are always friendly.  

Fortunately, we were able to see Greg, the owner's son, and give him our best.  He said that they would probably re-open somewhere else after the landlord ended their 45-year-old lease. They mentioned a url that they would set-up to post updates.  If anyone has it, please share.  We are very saddened by this rude news.

The High Line

Why is that every time I am basically on top of the much anticipated High Line on the west side of Manhattan, I'm always near "the exit"?  It seems silly that we can't enjoy walking in either direction.  It would have been great to walk up there tonight but we were told to "walk on" to the "entrance" on 16th and 10th Avenue.  Looking forward to planning a trip to the official entrance soon!

Squeeze Bacon?

Squeeze bacon may be considered rude to serve at a dinner party...

Shampoo + Conditioner = ??

My co-worker Laura pointed out today how rude it was to assume that shampoo and conditioner's core functions can be 'watered down' by the other.  Sounds like a corporate consolidation memo.  The whole combo concept just smells of a man... (said in a deep man voice) "Yes that is brilliant!  You will save time in the shower!"  This may work for short hair but for the rest of us this is crazy RUDE.  My locks need to be gently cleaned FIRST, then to be nourished and conditioned.  I celebrate the time spent on my mane!

Investigating this further, I found the original "2 in 1" product was Pert Plus.  They now have a line for men.  Ummm, who else besides dudes at the gym did you think was using your product before? They have patented this product as the original "time saver."  Loves it.

I think that this ad says it all...
