Incidentally did you know that this movie was one of the only few movies that John Cusack didn’t also work with his sister Joan? What you think that all I do is sprinkle the word “Fuck” and take half ass selfies? I have another side of me. I just can’t see it because I am too fucking fat.
Regarding the title of this worthless dribble I am referring to the the weather. I was on the phone with someone from the home office in Memphis yesterday. There were some issues with some Double Decker bus tickets that I sold last month and I was trying to get it handled. While we were waiting for her computer to finish the report we were talking about the weather. She said that it was raining in Memphis yesterday and I said of course it is raining. It is Memphis in May and it always rains during Memphis in May.
The person from the home office laughed and didn’t realize I used to live in Memphis. I told her that there are 3 times in Memphis when you could predict the weather;
The Hottest day of the year – Dead Elvis Week.
The Coldest day of the year – The Liberty Bowl Game
100% Rain on a certain day – Any Memphis in May Event Day
Now I would like to add a 4th Sure Thing to that list;
Want to know when it will rain in New York – Just wait till Friday! It always rains in New York on Friday!
Enough words, here are some pictures from the past 2 weeks that have been in my iFoam.
Have a good week I am going to try to get over this sinus infection that I got from flying to the EU last weekend so I can do it all over again next weekend!
Right out of the gate I would like to wish my good friends PNG Mike and his lovely (and saint of a) wife Claire a happy Anniversary! PNG Mike and Claire were married 6 years ago and we were there to witness the event and had a blast! I look back on 6 years ago and think about the ton of stuff that has happened between that beautiful March 1st day and now and WOW. Cancer, Move to NYC, Rolls Royce, British American Tabaco, Reflexology Barn – life is changing after you get >40 and it isn’t all that bad.
One of the most ironic events that comes to my mind is that on the morning of the wedding we had “Kegs n Eggs” with the boys. There were about 20 of us at the table and I was seated across from Claire’s Uncle. He and I were exchanging pleasantries and he asked what my thoughts of England were so far. I told him that I was a little worried that BBC1 was excited that it was going to ‘almost’ get into double digits on the Celsius scale. (Almost 47 degrees for you Fahrenheit people) 6 years later we are living in NYC and we are supposed to get a snowstorm and the temp won’t get above 1C tomorrow. In all seriousness, Happy Anniversary guys.
We have had a long week and are glad that Mary Louise is coming back today. Right before the snowstorm and crappy cold weather. Anyway here are some pics from that great weekend 6 years ago and some from this week in Manhattan/Brooklyn.
I have been remiss in posting these so here is a bonus Post Presidents Day entry for you 15 readers. We had a blast in London and hopefully we will be doing something like this again in the near future.
Regarding London, it was great seeing PNG Mike and Lady E as well as Lord Jimmy and his parents and seeing Vegas JD was a bonus too.
Had a busy week of travel this past week and Mary Louise is now heading to Spain at the end of this week. I will do a better job of posting since she will be out of the country and it is just me and Houdini/Maya. Here are some pictures I snapped this past week while in Memphis.
I will do a couple year in review posts later this week while Mary Louise is enjoying the rains in Spain. Merry New Year!
What is that in the air that I smell? Is the eau de urine y feces that wafts in the Times Square subway station? Is that the putrid smell of chestnuts roasting on an open food cart? The smell of 150 sweaty New Yorkers crammed into a barely functioning AC unit on a 4 train? Why no, that is the smell of Fall. Finally, we have some cooler than “Two Rats Fucking in a Wool Sock” weather up here. Naturally the Midtown Uniform Bro’s rejoiced like someone walked in with a fresh case of Smirnoff Ice but I think we may be finally done with summer.
Mary Louise returns this evening so I am going to head straight into the pictures but don’t worry. I will post some of the shenanigans that we did last weekend at a future date. Have a good weekend.
Who the F eats this crap? Oh wait I bet that “Shannon the ASPCA violator” does.
Khakis, Midtown Uniform Vest, Tennis Shoes – That is triple points if scoring at home
“Sir what can I help you with? I saw that you rang your flight attendant call button?”
“Yes, my window is very dirty, can you send someone out to clean it before our flight back to NYC? I like to see the canals of Gowanus when flying into LGA.”
They did’t clean my window but they did comp me some extra drinks so it wasn’t a total loss.
Hey Mike King – Guess what song that the brother of the bride is singing with the nieces?
Have a good weekend and I hope that your pro or college football team wins this weekend. And for those of you wondering what song Matt was singing…..MUSTANG SALLY! #trynottoletthatbeinyourheadallday
Sorry I haven’t been doing my job lately, the abbreviated week and the start of school has kept us busy. Hope everyone is happy that College Football is back in the swing of things and that now the NFL is about to start back up too. Here are some pics from this past Labor Day weekend.
I think that if I didn’t wear my traditional Seersucker Suit on the last Friday of the summer my team would revolt.
I wonder what Asshole lives in this eyesore. View from the Murphrank’s roofdeck.
Believe it or not we didn’t stage this picture. Maya could have been trying to cuddle up with Rocky because she was afraid of the humans. I think this was when Bobcat decided to ‘take a nap’!
She is as happy as a cat in a canary store.
“Oh sure you can sit on the throne and wear those funny crowns and let you believe that you are the boss of us.” #saidnooneever
BEFORE YOU START JUDGING ME – Not one bottle of this is mine (I only buy half gallons & Mary Louise’s maintenance wine comes in standard bottles) but I wondered if the old drunk South Bluff Neighbor moved into our building.
First Day of School for The Little Bastid! He is growing so tall!
We are those people who now take our dog to bars. In New York if a bar doesn’t serve food then dogs are welcome. Maya likes the bars in Boerum Hill.
This weekend we have The Carl Lipbalm Memorial Caddy Scholarship winner in town so I am sure we will have some fun pics to share with you next week. Keep it light.
