I don't know how much they get paid. But up it, Manhattan!

Quote of the Day

Michelle: "It's time for a BBQ! Starting at 12 and going until 3 or 4."

I had my brother and mother over for some home cooked take out. I felt badly asking them to take the trash out with them. A mistake that I won't soon repeat. Visitors: beware. It's either help me with the trash or help me with the murdered Marley.

Quote of the Day

Me: "I am a robot."

Melissa: "I knew it."

Me: "I have a robot vagina."

Melissa: "lol more than I needed to know..."

Me: "It's from 'Grandma's Boy.' I really wish I could use that phrase a lot more often."

Melissa: "Makes perfect sense."

A post-workday, soggy Madison Avenue.

Quote of the Day

Carrie: "My horoscope of the day: Placing your mouth around the exhaust of a car stuck in traffic is bound to cause more traffic problems. Please take into consideration the needs of others. 'Going Dutch' does not mean having it away with 4 people at once whilst smoking a jewel encrusted pipe."

Gump Snapshot

Nothing food-wise was too reminscent of down South, but the grease level? Almost got there.

Quote of the Day

Me: "Is this rain kidding?"

Carrie: "Oh that rain... loves to kid around on us!!"

Gump Snapshot

The good thing about faux chocolates? None of them are filled with cherry goo.

Quote of the Day

Roxana: "Whoa. Your hair looks like wild jungle woman hair. Like Jane from Tarzan."

Me: "Good morning!"

Gump Snapshot

A part of me, just about 87%, kind of wanted to slide my ffet into the back of these molds. Because dumb luck is better than no luck at all.

Quote of the Day

Jordan: "It's a whole production..."

Me: "Je s'ais."

Jordan: "Never easy. Oui - es me mahlok je'temme le' adoindos le' adoindos indeed."

Gump Snapshot

Shit happens.
Especially on a public floor in Times Square.

Quote of the Day

"I'm in horrible shape."

Me: "But you can always push through, you used to play softball."

Gump Snapshot

I went with the wonderful, amazing, sweet, easily amused Sunita M. for some overpriced food and drinks in the heart of Times Square. We chose Bubba Gump Shrimp Co mostly due to the fact that we were not seeing eye to eye on a single thing. And I, as usual, had the Port Authority as my end goal. The food was fine. The drinks were kitchy. The drink glasses got to come home with us. But the really exciting thing was that upon entering this two story homage to Forrest Gump and all aspects of the movie, I really felt transported from miserable Manhattan to a (slightly) more peaceful Alabama.

In the world of all you can eat Brazilian BBQ, the red sign is literal. It means stop bringing trays of exotic meats by. And green, also self-explanatory: keep it coming! So, in my worldly knowledge of non-verbal communications with restaurant signage, I knowingly informed Sunita that if she needed the waiter, to put the blue/green up, and if she needed nothing, to keep the red up. The red went up. And every waiter in the place stopped at our booth asking what they could help us with. Apparently, "Run" means keep going and "Stop" means, stop. I forgot we were in Forrest Gump Land.

Quote of the Day

Me: "I wear my sunglasses at night."

Carrie: "I'm forming a headache."

What a difference three years makes!

An eleven year old reaction to "Time for errands!":

As opposed to a fourteen year old's reaction:

What's amazing about hormonal teenage girls is that if you break through their raging emotions, they are still the eleven year old jumping up and down in their seat looking for a little adventure.

Quote of the Day

Grandma 'Nee: "Aly, I just saw the greatest bumper sticker! Bosses are like diapers. They are always on your a@$ and full of sh*t."

Currency Coasters

I was sent this LINK that highlights coasters made up of out-of-circulation currency. It would be kinda money to throw one of these down on the table. Class it up a bit.

Actually, my first thought was dissecting them with water, patience, tweezers and an eleven year old. And then promise them a 50-50 split if they can put it all back together again. Exercises in futility are kind of my specialty.

And side note: Happy National IPA Day. To the men and women who clearly have desensitized or completely numb taste buds. :)


Let's just pretend my Droid has heat detection software.

Quote of the Day

Roxana: "I love double standards."

Aly: "I prefer double entendres."

Hammin' it up.

If I so much as think about picking up a device that could be used to take a picture, Mojo is front and center. And he even knows to hide the bad spots of his do-it-yourself haircut that I should but will not stop doing myself.

Quote of the Day

Scotty: "They NEVER SHUT UP! It's constant bitching whining and giggling all day long. Seriously, if I die today I am going straight to heaven, because I've put in my time in hell."

Inside Marley's mind:

Do you see what I've been dealing with? His head is about to pop off. My naps are constantly interrupted. HE'S the reason I have my gray hairs! Give him some Valium, now.

Quote of the Day

Scott: "...Cruella DeVille is one of my heros."

Me: "She is pretty cool except for the whole puppy murder thing."

Scott: "That's the reason I like her! Fur is good. If puppy fur could line my boots, I'd be happy."
