Happy New Year

My musical wish to you as we head into 2006...yeah it's a little campy and kitschy but,'s ABBA after all... :)

I sometimes read my spam messages. I mean I know they are just trying to get me to go to some site where they will download some spyware material or turn my computer into a HUGE spam server for them but I don't give into the tempatation to see "mature lads licking cock" or "Young russian unique virgins hardcore check pics and movies" because quite frankly, I'm still trying to figure out what's unique about the virgins.

However, I do read it for the odd things that they include in the spam message so they can get past the filters. For example"

"A single idea, if it is right, saves us the labor of an infinity of experiences."

"A heart that loves is always young."

How can you not love spam that gets philosophical on you.

F5 for Refresh

So I've kinda made a few changes around here...added a few more links (some naughtier and more "not work" appropriate than others), started weeding through the "best of" the past 4+ years of my life (wow has it really been almost 5 years since I started writing this blog?) and have even begun renting out my space on BlogExplosion as well...I've even found a way to put video on here as well which I've been trying to figure out for ages....anyhoo....just a little not-so-Spring cleaning here....

Walking to Work...Strike Day 2

So...I was lucky enough to take yesterday off and avoid all of the mass hysteria as people tried to make it into their respective offices and get on with their lives while trying not to discuss the big white elephant (hmmm white that racist?) in the middle of the room.

Thankfully Day 2 of The Roger Toussaint Transit Nightmare seemed to go a little better and I even lucked out on getting a ride over the Queensboro Bridge into Manhattan rather than having to make that trek on foot. Out of 10 people in the office, only 4 of us are here and the psychotic one who seems to like taking time off is pretty much refusing to even come in or make an attempt at trying to come into the office which means I get to do her work. Of course, it is about a 2 hour walk into work for me which I'm not thrilled about but I'm here. I thought it would take longer but apparently I walk faster than I thought and was at the Queensboro Bridge in under an hour.

One of the rumors going around the office is that if you stay home from work due to the strike you have to use any of your personal or vacation days you may have left this year. If you don't have any left over, they will (supposedly) come out of your 2006 allotment. Well, if that is the case and people do start losing their vacation days, it's gonna create a ruckus. I can understand letting people have the first day of the strike off if it will cause a burden on THAT day. But after that you should have at least figured out a way to get into the office. Trust me, I put in a good couple of hours online looking to see where the pedestrian entrances are on the bridges I would have to cross so I could get over them with no problems. I didn't enjoy having to make the trek today but I did it because 1) my boss asked me to and I know he could use the help and 2) because the psycho isn't coming in and her work has to get done and there's no one else available to do it. I have four vacation days I could burn off but I'm being a team player on this one so hopefully it will pay off for me in the end. Tomorrow I'm thinking about breaking out the rollerblades which would kill my lower back but get me into the office much quicker. I just hope I can rememebr how to brake properly so I don't kill myself going down some of the bridges. I wish I still had a bike.

As for the strike, I'm on the side of the MTA on this one. I saw what the workers there are making which is significantly more than I am AND they get paid overtime which I don't. They also apparently get free medical care when they retire (which can be as early as 55 -- and they wanted to reduce that to 50!). Toussaint said something about how they didn't want to sell out their "unborn" which I thought was a ludicrous statement because he apparently isn't looking at what the cost of healthcare or pensions will be when the baby boomers retire. He says the workers created the surplus but they didn't. While NYC is clearly a pro-union town, the citizens who ride the MTA every everyday aren't especially appreciative of what's going on or what has happened. This intensified (especially for me) when Toussaint ordered the strike after being told by his national parent union that they did not support the strike and they needed to get back to the negotiating table and when some union leaders said that Toussaint wasn't fully forthcoming with them over the terms of the MTA's offer. Frankly, in my evil world of worlds, I hope that the strike lasts long enough so that it totally wipes out their raise for next year and in fact, I hope it puts them in a deficit so they can all look at Toussaint and say, "And why did we strike when we're making less this year?"

What really galls me is that he thinks the $1 million per day fine that was levied against him and the TWU is excessive.

You know what's excessive? Crippling NYC to the tune of $300-400 million a day. That's excessive.

Toussaint, come out of your fantasy land and into reality. You had a damn good deal on the table that I would be thrilled to have if I was an employee. You walked away to make a point that seems to be biting you on the butt as two-thirds of the city is AGAINST you and the union right now. If I really wanted to make a statement against your leadership of the union, I'd probably consider walking to work every day just so you and your union don't get a dime of my money.

Who knows I may do it anyway.

Reading comprehension

I'm sitting on the train into Manhattan and I notice this book that the guy next to me is reading. On the spine of the book, I read "Buttfest."

It was a book by Jimmy Buffet.

Maybe it's not reading comprehension I need but a vision exam.

I found this picture on the Village Voice website whlie reading an article about Tookie Williams and for some reason it was just a little too hypnotic for me and I kept starting at it trying to figure out what two of them were doing until I realized that one of the bears was facing in the opposite direction. I will say this though...the ad is VERY eye catching and inventive...damn I wish I was as creative as them...

Holiday Top 10

Taken from him:

The Holiday 10...just do it:

1. What’s your favorite holiday movie?
Hmmm tough one...never been a big holiday movie guy but if cartoon specials count then it's gotta be the "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" cartoon....if I had to actually go the MOVIE route then maybe Home Alone

2. What’s your favorite holiday song (title and artist)?
Hmmm another tough one..."Jingle Bell Rock" was always a favorite and I found a big band version of it that I like but I don't remember who recorded it...

3. What’s the best holiday gift you were ever given and why?
Money that helped pay off my trip to Italy.... :) Okay on a serious side, it would have to be...geez...hmmm...probably one the two teddy bears I still have from my childhood because it's one of the few things that I've had for pretty much my entire life and if I ever lost either of them I would probably cry my eyes out

4. Do you have a special someone to kiss at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s?

5. Name your favorite reindeer?
Blitzen...because he's such a slut....

6. Favorite holiday food?
Candy 'em...if you want the traditional holiday dinner food, it would be my grandmother's oyster stuffing she use to made religiously for large holiday I hope someone got the recipe for that

7. Snow day…cuddle by the fire or hand me a snowball?
Depends on who I'm cuddling with...

8. What was your New Year’s resolution from this year? Did you stick to it?
To be a nicer person....and we all know how that turned out...

9. Is there really a Santa Claus?
Yes...except he's moved his house to Palm Springs and run elf-slave labor centers in Thailand

10. Present or stocking stuffer?
Depends on how big the stuffer is...did I actually go there???

I'm in a funk. Can't really explain it. Just tired of working as hard as I have and not really having anything to show for it.

The guy I had the date with pretty much flaked out and all of the phone calls and conversations wejve had since then aren't on the same level so of course that leads me into a kwhat the hell is wrong with me cycle.

My roommates told me they are moving out which means I have to start a roommate search. I hate roommate searches.

Stairway to Heaven

Today I did the most amazing thing I have ever done in my life....something that I have thought since I was a little child but never really had the opportunity to do and never thought that I would really ever do...just a childhood dream that remarkably came true today...

I went inside the Leaning Tower of Pisa and walked all the way to the top...

It was totally worth the 17 euro I paid and I probably would have paid more if I had known it would have been that magnificent and spectacular. The entire climb I was grinning like a child knowing that I was going up inside this remarkable structure and that I was experiencing something that very few get to do. They take maybe 30 people up at a time and it's absolutely one of the most amazing things that I have ever done.

Can you tell that I got a rush out of that one???

I leave tomorrow for Venice so this is my last chance to snag some time in an Internet cafe (which are EVERYWHERE here) before I head out tomorrow. I must repack teh bag and start making my laundry list of things that I have bought for the customs agents. Four bottles of wine and one bottle of grappa are already on the list as well as the leather coat I just bought in San Lorenzo Square...sigh...I'm such a clothes whore...or leather whore....or just a whore...

Let's not go into the shoes...

La Passagiata

I don't know where exactly I am in Firenze (have to be Italian you know) but after a dinner at the Itlain equivalent of a "greasy spoon" I began to wander through the city and barely knowing how to get back to my B&B. I turned a corner and was hit by a wall of music from a quartet playing many classical standards and I was forced to stop and listen to them. It was one of those picture postcard moments that you want to hold onto forever becuase the feeling and sensation you get from it are too much to let least for now...

Thankfully I am taking them home with CD form at least...something to remember my first true night alone in Italy..

Gotta Love the Europeans

Sometimes they know how to phrase things better than Americans...taken from and yes, this is a real picture and not doctored at all...

Written in the stars

Courtesy of my good friend AJ...

Your Solar Return will take place in NYC, on Sept 16 at 1:24pm. (I assume your flight does not leave until night.)

You're kicking the year off right w/ a trip, because the Sun and Mercury are conjunct in the ninth house of Travel, Higher Learning, and Foreign Place, People, and Languages. Couple that with Sag Rising, and that Sag rules the ninth house, and you have a good year for taking up a new subject or visitng new places or learning a foreign language.

Jupiter, which also rules the ninth, is in the tenth house of Career, so look for some lucky opportunities to pop up, which might be related to where you're going, what you're learning. The Moon and Uranus conjunct in the third mean your emotions might be a bit of a roller coaster and might surprise people. You've got them in Pisces, so you could be more psychic, intuitive, or feel a greater need to help others.

Your Solar Return is almost at the Full Moon, which you'll have it over you in Italy the next night! The third house rules siblings (does one of your parents have a younger partner who could provide one?) and, more likely applicable here, communications. Writing, speaking, which tie back into the learning a foreign language or seeing new faces and places.

Venus in the 11th house of Friends and Social Groups says you'll be a social butterfly and quite enjoy it. Mars in the fifth house of Romance, Pregnancy, and Gambling says romance could be hot and sexual, and if you fuck a woman, you'll get her pregnant. ;-)

The only downer is Pluto in the first house of Self. You could be moody at times, pondering deep psychological issues. But Pluto wants to help you get over them, so ultimately, it's all for the good. It will also make you intense and insightful.

And then in regards to someone that I am kinda sorta pursuing....

Hmm, nothing screams, "Run away!" or "Your One True Love." This will be what you make of it. Nice stuff include his Pluto conjunct your Sun, showing a karmic connection. But it's also close to your Mars, meaning there can be some earth-shaking fighting...and love-making.

His Uranus conjuncts your Moon-Pluto conjunction in Libra means you find him exciting and liberating, and he might liberate you to a new home. (BTW, the next six weeks or so are big for you and home, w/ your stacked natal 4th house being transited by lots of planets in Virgo and Libra. You'll probably stay in touch w/ home base while you're away in Europe, and maybe spruce up your pad and/or entertain there.)

His Mars in Aquarius trine your Mercury in Libra adds feisty communications, and his Venus in Gem trine your Merc adds loving words. This can work, but it'll b/c you want it to.

You're in the mood for romance, and maybe even feeling a little more pimp daddy than one would expect from a Virgo. In your Progressed Chart, planets are shifting from fourth house of home and family and mother into fifth house of romance, pregnancy, father, and brain children and other big projects. The next two months look to be big as the Progressed Moon conjuncts the Prog Vertex.

8) Hire a male escort to "massage" me after the hiking tour I kid...I kid...

9) Investigate internet cafes in Florence to see if I can upload pics to clear out space on the memory card if needed They exist but will get some help from the B&B to point me in the right direction

10) Figure out how to get from the bus station in Venice to the train station Ugh....this part won't be easy....

11) Make sure my Blackberry will work over in Italy It will work. Won't be cheap but it will work...

14) Check into the lube/condoms thing that Brad told me about in a comment I have enough in supply now to last me...unless I turn into a raging whore while I'm gone....

15) See if I need to get some more Tylenol PM to help me out at night after a long hike 100 caplets is enough right???

16) Refill my diabetes prescriptions and make sure I take enough lancets and test strips for the glucose monitor Yep....all done....

17) Enjoy myself while I'm gone.....

Your Life Path Number Is 11


Your life path is greatly associated with spiritual awareness.

As one of the two master numbers, the 11 yields understanding and knowledge beyond the grasp of others.

The attitude toward life of those possessing this Life Path is somewhat extreme; extremely intuitive, avant-garde, idealistic, visionary, and cultured.

These extremes make you an interesting, if unusual person, with much to offer society.

The Life Path 11 person is deep-thinking, and you are no doubt interested in understanding many of life's mysteries and more intriguing facets.

Your inventive mind and broad-minded views will permit you to succeed in life in any number of ventures.

You can best serve society, however, in those endeavors utilizing your skills of counseling and guidance.

Much of your idealism is people oriented and quite humanitarian in nature.

You expect a great deal of yourself and of those to whom you are close.

On the negative side, there is a lot of nervous tension associated with the 11 life path, and you can be a difficult person to deal with because of this.

For this reason, relationships, at times, can be difficult.

This is a Life Path that seems to feature broad mood swings between the elation and depression.

You are likely to have trouble making decisions and getting your life in gear, so to speak.

There is a tendency for the 11 to harbor feelings of uneasiness, and dissatisfaction with accomplishments and personal progress in life.

Your grandiose schemes usually make sense, but you can get off the track and they can be very impractical.

You have a very distinct side that lacks common sense, and you are quite often unable to distinguish between fantasy and reality.

In this regard, you are perhaps more of a dreamer than a doer.

When you do get on target, your ideas seem to have been inspired on high.

Perhaps you are not a leader, but you are a visionary and a very talented idea person.

You Are From Saturn

You're steady, organizes, and determined to achieve your dreams.
You tend to play it conservative, going by the rules (at least the practical ones).
You'll likely reach the top. And when you do, you'll be honorable and responsible.
Focus on happiness. Don't let your goals distract you from fun!
Don't be too set in your ways, and you'll be more of a success than you ever dreamed of.

You Should Try Street Luge

With speeds of up to 70 mph,
Skateboarding laying down is not as tame as it seems.

The Subway Adventures of 646Guy

Comment made by 646Guy as he leaves the subway where a young couple hae been arguing since they got on the train:

"Tonight you two are either gonna break up or have the best make up sex ever. But do the rest of the people on the train a favor and decide now so you'll just shut up."

Under the Tuscan Sun

I haven't had a REAL vacation since 2000. Before that it was 1995. I need this vacation. I need it to recharge my batteries and figure out what the hell I am doing with my life. I need it so I can get away from everything and enjoy the world. I need it so I can come back to NYC full focused on what I need to do in my life. I need it just so I can get away and not have to deal with some of the people currently in my life.

I need it for me. I need to do something for me rather than doing stuff for other people. I need to give back to myself because, as of late, I've been giving too much of myself away to others.

Nine days and then two weeks abroad.

I need this.

So instead of getting the super expensive perfume, I've opted to go to the famous leather school and get the leather jacket/blazer that you see here. It will not be cheap by any stretch of the imagination but I'm determined to not do major shopping while on the hiking tour because I'd rather not have to lug things around with me and I know that the Italian postal system is notoriously slow and since I'm buying Xmas gifts over there...well maybe if it's supremely gorgeous and I'll never be going there again.....but this jacket is GORGEOUS....

Potential once in a lifetime thing of my friends pointed me towards a website about a guy in Florence who is for lack of a better phrase the fragrance designer to te stars. He does personal appointments where you can get your own personal fragrance made...the only down side is that at a minimum it costs 500 bucks (and that's not euros). I'm tempted to do but I'm questioning more whether or not it's kinda cool or kinda dumb...I mean it's not cheap for sure but it could be kinda cool....


And on a P.S. thing, I decided to stay at the B&B that could host me for all four days rather than go to one place for a day adn then to the other for three days. It's the same price and I don't have to move around so I like that....

UPDATE: I've decided not to do it because based on the most recent info I have found on the web (and to show you how "recent" it is, it's from 2003, the bottle of perfum woudl cost a minimum of $700 now and not $500....I think I'm gonna pass....I can get several pairs of shoes or some nice leather for that much money....

Ugh....I hate making decisions.... as I said in an earlier post (now that I have calmed down from this morning's hysterics), I have screwed up ever so slightly on my bed and breakfast stays for my trip to Italy. There was a minor misjudgment in when my hiking tour ended and I am left without accomodations for one day.

Now, I could stay here in the Brunelleschi Room for 80 euro a night and it's somewhat near the train station. Maybe a 15 minute walk. This would be good for the days that I plan on heading out to Siena and Pisa since I don't know when I will be returning. On the bad side, it looks like an IKEA showroom.

My other option is that I spend one night here in their PINK room at 90 euro a night and then I move over to my normal establishment for the next three days here in the Thomas room (or at least that's the room that I have requested) at 80 euro a night.

The third option (if it comes through) is that I just stay in the Pink Room the entire time at 90 euro a night.

The views in the first one are magnificent if not breathtaking. The Pink Room offers its own private terrace which overlooks the roofs of Florence. The Thomas room has some great decor, exposed beam ceiling, and a second story sleeping loft. All of them have breakfast and a private bath with shower. It's a tough call people.
