Here we are at another New Years Day. This one day is usually filled with so much expectation, hope, and remembrance of the past year. The exultation of the highs, and the lamentations of the lows. For many it is the chance at a fresh start with unrealistic goals and dreams. Seems like everyone has some sort of “New Years resolutions” they try to adhere to, and make a valiant effort to reach, but most fall way short and give up on them within a few weeks, months, or even days! Do yourselves a favor and don’t make any resolutions. Just go out and live your life the best you can. You can make changes and goals for your life on any day you choose, and not just have to limit it to this one day. As the sneaker ad saying goes – just do it!
That being said – HAPPY NEW YEAR! Do your thing! Get your freak on! Party like it’s 1999! Continue reading Happy New Year 2014 Everyone!!!
Here we are one day before Christmas and like the typical guy I am still shopping for last minute presents. I don’t mean to do this to myself every year. Why do I put myself through this torture? I know months in advance what I need to get and for whom I am shopping for, yet I put it off until Christmas week. I refuse to do the whole Black Friday and Cyber Monday madness. I guess I am a glutton for holiday punishment. What I will do though is take advantage of the crazy hours the stores stay open this week. With many of the major retailers staying open 24 hours a day I don’t mind at all going shopping after midnight. This way I avoid most of the obnoxious shopper crowd. I did just that the other night at Macy’s here in NYC. The store was kind of empty which was a pleasant surprise, but at 2AM it’s kind of a freak show in this part of town. Idiot parents, crazy weather, smelly cab drivers, etc
Time for a Christmas rant, along with the presents I would want Santa to give them! Continue reading A Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays rant!
Well, here we are again in another winter season. It’s December and a week away from Christmas. Full swing into the holiday season. People are packing the malls, shopping online, and scurrying to take advantage of the many last minute sales and discounts. We have already seen a few small snowfalls here in NYC that have thrown the public into panic mode! It just never amazes me how even a few inches of snow in the forecast nowadays gets overblown into a catastrophic event! I really think it’s a conspiracy by the news channels, weather forecasters, internet sites, and newspapers to help spread fear while generating higher ratings and sales. Why does every teeny snow squall have to be assigned a name of doom? Watch out for “Snowstorm Ass Ripper” that is looking to dump a total of two inches of the white stuff on us! Be deathly afraid of “Mega-storm Skid Mark” which will coat us with upwards of three inches of Hell! Run for your lives as “Crazy Storm Turd Burglar ” leaves us trudging through a Hellish inch of the fluffy stuff! As soon as the news starts talking about the upcoming snowfalls in these terms the inevitable happens. People run to the supermarkets and bodegas scrambling to scoop up every supply item they can to help survive the onslaught of snow that we mostly never end up really seeing. It’s like every snow day is a re-creation of Black Friday panic! Grab all the bacon!!! Continue reading Run, hoard, and hide! Here comes the snow NYC!
Very often, the holiday spirit of giving is in our hearts, but it can be difficult to know when, where, and how we can help others in need at this time of year. With that in mind, Oz Moving has put together a map of locations where you can drop off new, unwrapped toys and gifts for children who are less fortunate. They have researched and mapped several reputable charitable organizations to help these gifts reach their destinations.
With a few good helpers from New York City and the surrounding areas we can deliver a little bit of holiday happiness to those less fortunate. If you’re interested in helping make someone’s holiday a whole lot happier, please take a look at the map below and find out where you can make your donation.
Toys for Tots is collecting toys to donate to less fortunate children throughout New York City this holiday season. Oz Moving has partnered with Toys for Tots to create an interactive map of NYC that lists toy drop off locations in the NYC metro area. Our goal is to make it easier for people that are looking to donate toys, and find the closest drop off location to them.
