Mirror, Mirror...

Well, its not LA. Or so I'm told. But still, the amount of plastic surgery in NYC is rather astonishing. Know what's even worse?

The amount of BAD plastic surgery.

Women, and men for that matter, do not go under the knife to come out of anesthesia looking worse than they did when they went under. But many end up deformed phantoms of their former selves. Of course your forehead is smoother, but did you see what it did to your eyes? Or how about the bad nose job and cheek combo which, other than the dress you are wearing with the obsessive amounts of bling on your finger, made me wonder whether I should say "Ma'm" or "Sir."



Don't worry about the wrinkles, you earned them! They all tell a story and your only concern should be that it was a good one! Just don't attack who you are.  Its sad that people are unable to see the unique beauty that they are before they are hacked at like the leg of lamb in a gyro shop.

And that's my two cents!

When Did I Become an Antique?

So, for some strange reason my friends are posting all of these nostalgic pictures on Facebook of us doing all of the wacky things kids did during their teenage years.  They are fabulous pictures bringing back wonderful memories. BUT....

When did our pictures start looking SO OLD?!?

I mean, look at them!! Really?!? With a megapixel of 0.0 these are grainy as grainy can be, scanned into our computers via a flatbed scanner because this was before the age of pictures on disc, card, or the internet. They can't even be called cool and vintage like the pictures of our grandparents.

All we need is a round of Oregon Trail... Oh, wait, I have that on my iTouch right now...

I don't feel old, but these pictures make me look like an antique!

Five Things I know for Sure

Five things I know for Sure:

1.) David Suchet is the quintessential "Poirot;"
2.) No home has enough space for all the books one requires;
3.) Time off from work is a necessary part of human survival;
4.) You can only understand the world around you when you've seen/experienced it;
5.) This list is subject to change/expand/grow in detail on a daily/hourly/moment by moment basis.

Mwah! :)
