Dog Rider

Apparently this woman 'walks' dogs for people in the neighborhood. Her easy-riding seems very rude and dangerous!

Wash Your Elbow

Scientists have found that 6 'tribes' of bacteria could be living in the crook of my elbow. I don't recall inviting them in there. How rude! I'm off to wash them away.
"Even after you have washed the skin clean, there are still one million bacteria in every square centimeter." Sick!

Interactive Restrooms

This is a very rude concept. I also wouldn't appreciate it if I were waiting in line.

She Cut It Off

How rude that I wasn't consulted in this decision by Gwyneth to chop her locks. OK I love it.

Scary Rude Foot Shoe

I agree with Stephen from Urlesque in describing this show as "creepy-as-all-hell". I would also like to add to that "rude-as-all-hell".

Welcome Home - and don't worry about that flaming car

Yes that's right. That car is on fire. How rude!
MB and I came home off of the F train and thought that we walked onto a movie set. It wasn't a movie but I think it could be some sort of performance art. There is a lot of 'artsy' activity in the neighborhood this week. Nothing says industrial, artsy, cutting-edge like a flaming car. A very rude stunt if it is one. (no one was hurt).

Open Toes

As tomorrow brings warm weather to New York, I just want to remind everyone where I stand on flip flop wearing on the subway: it's gross and not very ladylike. M.B. just reminded me that there are those who wear flip flop sandals in the office. Oh my is that rude and offensive (and dangerous depending on your occupation!).

House Tour

This weekend M.B. and I toured the neighborhood. We went to the annual Brooklyn Heights House Tour. The homes were lovely and it was nice way to spend a Saturday. Some of the people policing the tour (and yes policing is exactly what they did) were crazy rude. The houses were filled to capacity and it was at times difficult to get through the homes because there were so many of them 'working'. There was one in every room (and it seemed like 12 in the entrance) and when we walked into the rooms, they looked at us like we were criminals, as though we may steal something from the children's room or use the bathroom. I was hissed at for taking a photo even though it was from the street, something anyone is allowed to do!

Myanmar Humanitarian Crisis

The Burmese military junta will not allow the necessary amounts foreign aid workers into Myanmar to help victims of the cyclone and they have seized UN aid entering the country. They are depriving these poor people of food, water, medicines, shelter - exacerbating the disaster each hour they reject help from abroad. This is tragically rude.

Much Too Much

I'm all for green, vegan, even "breathable" shoes as long as they don't OFFEND me. These are rude. I'm sorry Emily, they are rude. I can just see me sitting in a wine bar when the waiter asks to borrow my cork, I mean shoe.

REAL Beauties?

According to AdAge, the successful Dove Real Beauty campaign that captured nearly nude women, was not all that "real". A photography assistant claimed in a New Yorker interview to have re-touched most of the women's photos. He said, 'But it was great to do, a challenge, to keep everyone's skin and faces showing the mileage but not looking unattractive.' The campaign was very successful, especially the viral 'evolution' video. Unilever didn't comment. How rude!

How Rude of Me

I have been feeling under the weather recently and have neglected to post. How rude of me! Anyway, I found this new product endorsed by Lance Armstrong. "Tired of Being Tired?" it asked me.

My answer is, "YES!" I feel like this woman, Ashely from TX (read more amazing success stories here). I'll order my free sample and will hopefully have more energy to blog.
