Is it "The End of the World As We Know It"?

R.E.M. might be on to something...On December 21 2012, Nostradamus, the same man who foresaw 9/11 (amongst other world disasters that occurred), has predicted that the world is going to end. I’m usually a skeptic who would not normally entrust my life decisions in a little man dressed as a leprechaun (for some reason the image of a leprechaun always pops into my head when thinking about Nostradamus – I could just picture him sitting at one end of a rainbow with his feet up on a pot of gold, smoking a pipe, and making up these life altering incidents that coincidentally come true), but in recent months/years, there have been a number of natural and unnatural disasters occurring; and although not all of Nostradamus’ predictions do come true, a good number of the big ones have - this ultimately leads me to the belief that this little leprechaun might be onto something.

I don’t believe there are aliens who beam people up to space and probe them while they are sleeping, but I do believe that there could possibly be other life forms out there in this world. I read an interesting article this morning about a group of astronomers who discovered an earth-like planet that is 3x the size of our earth, which could possibly be livable for humans. If this planet could possibly be human friendly, then there are definitely other life-forms that are already living and surviving there. I believe in the supernatural…to an extent. While I don’t believe people can fly or shoot lasers out of their fingernails, I do believe that some people have somewhat of a 6th sense - no, I don’t think they can see dead people, but I do think they can sense their spirits.

Sometimes I feel as though we are all in the Truman Show and life is one big movie that god (or Stephen Spielberg) is directing. I believe that everything happens for a reason and if you try to change the path that this “director” has chosen for you, it may or may not work out; so it’s important to just live your life (thanks Rihanna) how you want to. Be responsible, but make sure to take risks and live with no regrets because you never know when it will be cut short; whether it be by terminal illness or a prediction formulated by a prophet dressed like a leprechaun.

Dear Diary

Dear Diary,
It's raining right now and I wish it would stop.
Your best pal,

The Sunburnt Cow

Only Tina Turner can sum up the deliciousness that is The Sunburnt's "simply the best". I was there two Saturdays ago for a friends birthday brunch and the experience was nothing short of fabulous. With Eggs Benedict to die for and an amazing brunch special to boot, you cannot go wrong with this delectable Aussie hotspot nestled in the streets of Alphabet City. For $15 you get whichever scrumptious breakfast indulgence you desire and an unlimited amount of Mimosas, Bloody Mary’s, Pineapple/Vodkas, Etc…and the wonderful wait staff is so accommodating that when I explained how I was allergic to Orange & Pineapple juices, they had no problem serving me an unlimited supply of Vodka/Cranberry drinks. You can only imagine the drunken debaucheries that ensued on that fateful Saturday afternoon at 1pm. I also just remembered that I briefly spoke to my grandma in the midst of my Saturday afternoon shenanigans at Sunburnt Cow…let’s just say she’s still waiting for me to call her back!

Teen Wolf

After not seeing it for about 10 years, last night I watched the movie Teen Wolf. When I got to the part where the school and town became accepting of that hairy little fellow, I started to realize something that I hadn't noticed before; those silly bastards only liked him because he was good at basketball. If that man-wolf had not been on a sports team, he definitely would not have been as cool...I'm pretty sure people would still be afraid of him. If you saw that hairball just perusing the hallways of your school, would you run up to him and say hello to him because he was good at basketball or would you run the other way?!? I mean, it's not like in the movie Teen Witch, where she places a spell on the entire school to be the most popular girl. You can't fight a spell, but you can certainly choose to run when you see a pubescent wolf boy coming your way.

Things That Annoy Me For $400, Alex.

...people who use their umbrellas as canes.

Wednesday, March 19, 2008


When it rains in New York City, the streets flood not only with water but with hundreds of umbrella wielding new yorkers; who don't seem to care if they smash their umbrella into yours, causing both of the umbrellas to not cover either persons head, which then causes both parties to get rained on and completely defeat the purpose of having an umbrella in the first place.

On my way home from work today, I noticed that no one in this city seems to know the proper etiquette to holding an umbrella on a crowded street. I don't know if people just don't care or if they really don't know how to respectfully walk down the street on a rainy day and not soak and/or whack every person in their path. It's really pretty simple; if you are holding an umbrella and see someone coming towards you with their umbrella, you can either lower your umbrella so it goes underneath theirs, raise your umbrella so it goes above theirs OR you can not be lazy, move to the side and let them pass.

If Rhianna is going to sing about how you can stand under fabulous umbrella, she better know how to properly hold it on a crowded NYC street.

Is This Real.

Insomnia is a hell of a drug. I often find myself trying to decipher my dreams from reality. It leaves too much time to think and overanalayze life. I do know one thing; It's not the 1 cup of coffee I have at 9:00am...
