I have to admit to being a slug lately. With all that has been going on here in the city – hurricane, nor’easter, power outage, slight cold – my workouts suffered and I definitely dropped off my routine. I feel like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. I’m starting to resemble him. After looking in the mirror this morning I decided to drag my pudgy ass to the gym and get back to my workouts.
Riding the rails each day back and forth to work offers me ample time to observe my fellow human beings. One thing that I have noticed over the years are that many men have a complete and utter disregard for their outward appearance, mannerisms, and basic hygiene. Oh yeah, I’m gonna go there! Yes, I am!
Point in case this morning – “the nose hair” guy. Really? It’s probably the easiest thing to take care of. They sell small trimming scissors and battery operated tools to buzz those suckers right down. Just trim once a week so you don’t look like a freaking party favor when breathing. While you’re at it also trim those trees growing out of your ears. No one wants to see hair sprouting out of every orifice on your head. Nothing wrong with a bit of manscaping on the noggin once in a while. Continue reading Dude! Trim those nose hairs!
I don’t know about any of you but I’m just not ready to see darkness starting at 5pm! It feels like I’m just getting my day started and all of a sudden it’s night time. Daylight savings was invented to play with people like me. First of all, my morning started out with a lack of necessary caffeine as I stupidly went to the voting booths to do my patriotic duty without a cup o’ joe and got trapped there for almost two hours! Everyone was cranky to begin with. Double ugh!
Well, here we are back to the daily grind in NYC a week after Hurricane Sandy. Most subways lines and roadways are up and running for most. People are lined up at Starbucks and bagel stands to get their normal fix. Businesses are open. Power has been restored to the majority. I have to give big props to the MTA and ConEd for getting everything up as quick as they did under the circumstances. It truly was a Herculean effort, and the employees of those companies that were in the trenches working day and night need to be applauded. There are still areas that are out but should be up shortly.
