We went out to dinner in the North End, so I figured okay it's either garlic, or my wonderful perfume. Moments later, I heard someone say "does it smell like maple syrup...does anyone smell syrup? No one smells that?". As I removed my coat, I put it up to my nose and took a sniff.
Holy eff my coat smells like a pancake breakfast. I haven't eaten pancakes in about a year, and I'm unsure of where the scent came from...
Can we say, all I want for Christmas is a gift certificate to dependable cleaners? I think so.

February 13, 2009 - I was single (still am) I'd say that's unlucky the day before Vday...
And then there's today November 13, 2009. I haven't moved from my desk for fear of anything bad happening...
And don't say that I'm a weenie because I fear Friday the 13th. Henry Ford, FDR, and Napoleon all feared it.

Well, I hate New York, and there are 'inside' jokes that I don't quite (or will ever) appreciate. So I've decided to blog the ridiculousness I hear on a daily or weekly basis. Today, I was innocently walking by a row of cubes, and just stumbled on inspiration.
A super kind way to say: 'You Look Like Sh*t'
Guy: I did not say you look like crap.
Girl #1: Of course you did!
Girl#2: No, you totally did.
Guy: All I said was 'glasses today, huh?', you can take what you want from that.

Are they jobless? and if they are jobless, where are they getting the money to be shopping? I mean, I understand the annoying women I passed sitting at au bon pain holding up the ridiculous baby clothes they bought (with their hard-working hubbies ca$h) and the older women well, they're obvi retired.
And then, I jump on the highway to head home, and what are all these cars doingg? Where are they going and/or coming from? It's the same thing I think when I hit traffic late at night on say a Wednesday. Why isn't the whole East coast a sleep?
