Most Affordable Towns

My little hometown. Funny how they forget to mention the snow..

Kenmore, New York
Median family income: $59,875
Median home price (2006): $93,413
Kenmore joins the aforementioned Tonawanda to form a region the locals call Ken-Ton. The Buffalo suburb offers low-cost housing in low-crime neighborhoods. Decent single-family homes start around $70,000 there with many in the $150,000 range. More exclusive areas, like Deerfield Park, will cost you close to $300,000.

Yesterday I found out that mid-year bonuses at my job are all f'd up. In addition we now get year end bonuses in March of '08. Because my firm was bought out by a Private Equity Firm we changed our year end. Long story short I get a "year end" bonus which should be payment for 12 months but now instead is for 14 months with no additional amount for the 2 additional months. Anyways with all of this I was suppossed to get my mid-year bonus in July. Well looks like I'm not getting it till October. They tell us this days before we were expecting them. So I postponed my vacation in order to have enough spending cash. Well that and work is going to be nuts until the end of August.

Really the whole point of that long paragraph is I now have to wait until August 21st to fly first class. Really that's the highlight of my vacation. I'm really looking forward to it. More than I think is normal. I always walk by the first class folks when boarding and look longingly at their large leather seats. Then I cry on the inside a little again after the stewardess makes the announcement that the bathroom in the front of the aircraft is for first class passengers only. I have to pee like 2 times an hour and bathrooms are essential to me. I can't wait to have access the the exclusive bathroom.

Oh and also I'm looking forward to the free booze that apparently they serve in first class. I mean come on we all know momma likes to get her drink on while flying.

Pictorial Update on summer activities

I've been way to lazy to post anything of substance and that trend continues. As a matter of fact uploading the pictures almost took more effort than I could handle. So with out further ado I present you with pictures from my life:

Paul and Jess. We are so happy!

Aww, more P and J.

P and J at the beach

Paul had this weird obsession with getting a little dog like Paris Hilton.

Just because Emily is so damn sexy.

Cate wears her sunglasses at night

When brunch begins at Blue Moon you know drunkeness will follow.

Man Man show at McCarren pool.

Princess Carolyn and her boy Georg at Man Man. Aww.

4th of July Picnic. We do picnics up right.

More picnic.

Ben and Danelle, the newly engaged cuties..

Mark and Cate, also cute, but not engaged...

Farmers in Spain

This man has clearly not seen a woman in a long ass time (pun intended):


  • Taken from a story in the NYT about the Spanish Countryside bussing in women from Madrid for marriage to farmers.

Astronaut did NOT wear diapers

Apparently the astronaut who was all cra-gee and drove 950 miles to confront her ex lovers current GF is now claiming she was NOT wearing diapers at her time of arrest. Why did she wait until now to dispute that part of the story? Did she miss the part where it was all over the news for days? I mean either she was or wasn't. I think the cre-gee wore off, her drugs are kicking in and she is now a little embarassed.

Lesson learned: Don't wear adult diapers to confront a romantic rival if you don't want it all over the news (and then featured in an episode of Law & Order).

Breaking News

My boss has offered her milage to me for a plane ticket as a "thank you". There are strings attached. I have to use it to visit my mom. I'm not thrilled about the last part, but I mean I have to go visit her anyways right? What better way to arrive than first class. I haven't flown first class since I was like 9 years old. I miss it.

Yesterday I had a super annoying day. Or at least it started off that way. I got up, late as usual and rushed to get ready. I got to the train and was super crowded and my $100 Bose ear buds were (are) crapping out after less than a year in use. Then I got to the subway and I put in $20 to refill my metro card and the f'ing machine ate my $20. I'm so fed up with the MTA. All they want to do is increase rates and decrease service. I decided to boycott the MTA for the day. They will not be getting any more of my hard earned dollars. I made the choice to walk from 57th to 33rd on my way home.

At 5:30pm promptly I leave my office and walk out into the swealtering NYC heat with like a million other people because there's also been ANOTHER power outtage thanks to f'ing ConEd (who also likes to raise rates and provide shitty service) and the trains are all jacked up along with the buses, so everyone is walking. So there I am walking down 6th Avenue, cursing everyone and right in front of me like a breath of fresh air appears Mr. Anderson Cooper. And out loud I said "Anderson Cooper, check". Apparently he's now been crossed off my "celebs to see" list. And Just like that my day was better.

Lesson of the story: seeing a celeb on the street makes everything better.

The cold war is over

I have to say no matter how many times me and Paulie swear we think the other person is a total jerk we always end up friends again.

So in the famous words of the Golden Girls (how many times have you been waiting for JUST the right time to quote the Golden Girls):

"Thank you for being a friend".

On Wednesday I got a tetanus shot from the best and also most hot doctor ever. He neglected to mention that for days after the shot my arm would feel like I was stung by a bee then punched repeatedly on the same arm by a burly man.


I also got my first EKG ever. It made me kinda nervous. The instructions were "do not move, don't even wiggle your fingers or toes". Then they turned on the machine and I started seeing stars. It was really weird.

Turns out I'm in tip top health, minus the whole loosing weight issue I'm having.

I get to see him again next week. I'm pretty excited.
