Honorable Mentions to Commuter Peeves

Ok, I know what you are thinking….Michelle, what else could possibly irritate you during your commute.  Well, in addition to my top ten, here are a few honorable mentions: Knees in the back of my seat guy – Ok, I get it, you want comfort.  Of course you are getting it at the expense of mine.  Do you really need to ball your six foot five frame up into a fetal position and cram your knees into my back? The Fidgeter – []

Commuter Eutopia

I meant to blog about this on Friday. It was raining, so I drove to the train station. I was able to park in the #1 spot which means I basically get off the train of the evening and bump into my car. Which usually I am on the other side of the lot. I smiled to myself and thought today might not be that bad. I walked onto the platform and noticed the morning smoker was not there. ‘Geeze’, I thought, []

We Only Have Room For One Bawl Baby In The Family…

What? You expected me to lead with, “Stay Gold Ponyboy”? IMDB: The Outsiders “Based on the novel of the same name. The story of young men growing up facing hard times where they have little going for them. Two opposing groups, the Greasers and the Socs, continually fight against each other and their “turf”.” 1983, really? It has been that long since the release of the Francis Ford Coppola piece? Twenty five years have passed…which explains my changed feelings for this movie. []

Old Commute Post 06/11/08 (Fran Drescher)

*****Warning, this post contains foul language which may be inappropriate for younger readers***** This is another blog from my old site that came to mind… Ok, last night I stopped by to see my friend Tony after a marathon dash through SoHo with Melissa. The evening ended with Tony and I on the corner trying to (unsuccessfully) catch a cab. After 20 minutes of waiting on one side of the street I crossed to the other. About 20 feet from me a []

Old Commute Post 09/08/08 (Types Of #Commuters)

I wrote this blog at another location. Writing my Top Ten blog made me think of it. Hope you enjoy… For those of you who know me very well, you know that I have certain online videos that I will pull up and watch on days when I am in a bad, sad or down kind of mood. I call them my happy spots. For those of you who do not know me well enough to know my happy spots, please watch []

(my) Top Ten Commuter Peeves

Ok, ok, ok. I know what you are going to say. I live in NY so I have to expect rude people during my commute. But (really) why should ANYONE have to deal said rude people. I think that those people should be taken aside, stripped of their clothing and made to walk the sidewalks nude. Other commuters would look, shake their head and say….oh, that is one of THOSE commuters….. (my) Top Ten Commuter Peeves: 1. Jumping Line – When coming []

Amanda Nicole

Eighteen years ago I was in a delivery room at Patti A Clay Hospital in Richmond, Kentucky. I had gone almost a full three weeks past my due date and was ready to get the ball rolling and have me a baby. When she finally came rolling into this world, Amanda Nicole weighed almost ten pounds and immediately went into six month old clothes (so much for the little dainty newborn getups). Because she was born on Halloween, one of the nurses []

A Country United To Be Divided

In looking for the image above to include in this blog, I came across an interesting article regarding the history of these two political logos at FactMonster.com. Something you see all the time but do you ever wonder how/why these two images were chosen? Another thing that I have learned from researching this blog is that there are actually six candidates that you will find on the ticket, not just two. These are: Barack H Obama, Jr (Democrat), John S McCain III []

Diary of a Dead Raccoon

I am a creature of habit.  I will inevitably write about many of those habits here so you may muse with me why it is that these habits are in place or maybe laugh at the scenes that occur due to said habits.  One of these habits is this – on payday I treat myself by driving to my train station that morning.  It is only a half mile walk, however, it is nice to occasionally just drive there.  This past Tuesday []
