I don't know why they show commercials of restaurants that are not in the NYC area such as a Papa John's(anyone know of any) or a Sonic? WHY!!!
Took a cute picture of a mini pineapple I brought yesterday.
Karma bit me in the ass on the train going home yesterday. I was hurrying to get a sit as this guy was getting up when his bag strap caught onto my umbrella and he exited the train with my umbrella making me a tad wet yesterday. Heh.
On the same train I saw a brother and a sister playing with these invisible markers and when the little sister was getting rowdy the brother shushed her and she replied "You can stick that market up your nose and pull out your brains." That made me laugh.
A little factoid for you readers. I got some information some of you may or may not have known. The body thinks it is full after eating protein while it thinks it is not full if eating carbs. This makes sense cause I could eat potatoes or bread forever.
I received an email a while ago about how some of the techniques Martha Stewart does is wrong and easier short cuts for women in the "real world". Funny enough I found the Martha Stewart tips more helpful. I'll share them with you.

Martha Stewart vs The Real Woman:
Martha's way #1: Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips.
The Real Women's Way: Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for Pete's sake, you are probably lying on the couch eating it anyway.
Martha's way #2: To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.
The Real Women's Way: Buy Hungry Jack mashed potato mix and keep it in the pantry for up to a year.
Martha's way #3: When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the outside of the cake.
The Real Women's Way: Go to the bakery. They'll even decorate it for you.
Martha's way #4: If you accidentally over salt a dish while it's still cooking, drop in a peeled potato and it will absorb the excess salt for an instant "fix me up".
The Real Women's Way: If you over salt a dish while you are cooking, that's too bad. Please recite with me: The Real Women's motto: I made it and you will eat it and I don't care how bad it tastes.
Martha's way #5: Wrap celery in aluminum foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.
The Real Women's Way: Celery? Never heard of the stuff.
Martha's way #6: Brush some beaten egg white over pie crust before baking to yield a beautiful glossy finish.
The Real Women's Way: The Mrs. Smith frozen pie directions do not include brushing egg whites over the crust and so I don't do it.
Martha's way #7: Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half and rub
it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.
The Real Women's Way: Martha, dear, the only reason this works is because you can't rub a lime on your forehead without getting lime juice in your eye, and then the problem isn't the headache anymore, it is because you are now BLIND!
Martha's way #8: If you have a problem opening jars: Try using latex dishwashing gloves. They give a non slip grip that makes opening jars easy.
The Real Women's Way: Go ask the very cute neighbor to do it.
And, finally, the most important tip...
Martha's way #9: Don't throw out all that leftover wine. Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.
The Real Women's Way: Leftover wine?
