Well, here we are in NYC waiting for this nor’easter, or blizzard, or squall, or whatever the heck the weather forecasters predicted for today. Winter Storm Nemo? Really? They named it Nemo? Does Disney know about this? Is there a “TM” after this storm’s name? Do they get royalties after each mention of Nemo? Our semi-crazy Mayor Bloombito has all the trucks ready waiting to plow the streets and throw the sand down. I have to give him some props for making sure the city is prepared. Just don’t get caught drinking a Big Gulp while waiting around or the sugar police will come and arrest you.
Speaking of waiting around just where is Nemo? We have been waiting all day here in the city and all we have so far are a few snowflakes, light rain, and flurries. I’m not really impressed so far. I even decided to work from home today since the forecast was calling for this mess to begin early afternoon. Hey Mister Snow Miser – I want a refund!

Hey, guess what? I’ve been nominated for a new award. I have no clue why, other than the fact that someone out there must be obsessed with my incoherent scribble that I write about. Maybe I have a stalker or two. Should I be flattered or scared? Either way, I am flattered and it is an honor to be recognized and nominated for the Liebster Award. From what I gather this award is given to those newer and creative blogs out there, the “up and comers”, that have been discovered along the way by fellow bloggers. Crazy right?
Now here are the pesky rules one must adhere to when accepting the Liebster:
1. Thank the person who nominated you.
2. Post eleven random facts about yourself.
3. You answer the eleven questions asked by the person who nominated you.
4. You think of a new set of eleven questions and nominate eleven others to answer them.
Damn, this is a lot of work!

In a city where it seems you have to mortgage away your life savings just to live here sometimes you have to make some tough decisions when it comes to spending. Especially when it comes to nightlife, dining, and fun time! The majority of us are barely getting by as most of our paychecks are handed over for rent, bills, and the basic necessities of life. Hey, one must have enough toilet paper on hand at all times! We New Yorkers are a city of people that work hard and play hard. After a long work week we still find a way to go out and party, even if that means digging into our cash pile meant for bills, or we dig in the couch cushions and coat pockets for enough change to have some drinks. Isn’t it a thrill when you come up on some dollar bills you had stuffed into a pocket and forgot about months ago? Heck, I need to find some way to keep my thirst for good booze quenched!

Life in NYC is always a bit different the day after New Years. It’s always a “bit off” to begin with but maybe that’s just me. After a week’s vacation for the holiday season I was jonesing to head back to work and get back on a normal routine. Even so, it feels like I am still groggy today, and I can tell that most New Yorkers look and feel the same way. People are moving a bit slower on Jan 2nd . Mr Sandman put some extra sleep crustiness in our eyes and we are trying to get back into the swing of things. For many of us after a week off or long holiday weekend we are still recovering from the excessive partying, bad eating, and extra drinking we indulged in. We know better but still ruin ourselves every year!
