Human Centipede


I can't even talk about the new disgusting horror porn film Human Centipede because it upsets me in every way I can imagine. Yet, I can't stop googling to find out how it all ends. Please tell me.

Superior Donuts

Saw the Tracy Letts' play Superior Donuts tonight. Dustin Hoffman was there. It was a highly enjoyable theater experience although it was no Osage August County. Michael McKeon gave a Tony worthy peformance. It sort of had a theatrical Chico and the Man feeling about it. Oh, and Chelsea Clinton was on the subway with me on the way home. She's actually kind of pretty in person.

10 Reasons Today Was Mediocre

1. My boss gave me one of those end-of-day deadlines without context or direction and that stresses me out.
2. Weird smirks and sideways glances from my direct reports make me feel like Michael on the Office.
3. MJ Cat just tried to run away into the apartment upstairs.
4. This guy I like I marrying another woman on Saturday. I just thought of that one.
5. My allergist is insisting I make an appointment or he won't refill my allergy meds.
6. The recession is sucking me dry.

Transportation

Today on the way home from work someone confessed she takes a taxi everyday to work! That shocked me but I hate taxis. I think I hate taxis more than I hate the MTA and I think the MTA kind of sucks. I mean I spend $27/ week now on my transit card and despite the increase in price, I have not seen an increase in service. I rarely get a seat in the morning and what's up with the IRT? Why do I always feel like I wait AT LEAST 1/2 hour to take the downtown train? I can't even go to the Upper East Side anymore because of the crowds on the 6. Taxis just make me mad because of the terrible driving and the fact that I feel like I'm going to vomit 99% of the time. I actually have vomitted in UTOG cars twice, but that was on the corporate dime.
I love New York.

I'm Still Wild About Harry!

Tonight I attended an awesome private party hosted by Clive Davis celebrating Harry Connick Jr.'s new album Your Song which is a collection of well-known songs featuring Harry's vocal talents. I've been a fan of Harry's since his debut 18 years ago and he is an amazing performer. Also, attending a party with Clive Davis was on my bucket list so I can cross that one off!

The Fall Season Has Begun

I kind of took the summer off of blogging. I spent most of my free time redecorating my apartment and overtanning myself at the Printing House Pool. I travelled to Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, The Outerbanks, Cape May, Baltimore and York, PA for my 20th high school reunion. I haven't had time to blog, but I have a lot of stories so I'm back to blog. Hope to see you.
