hey boy

“Hey Boy” by The Blow

 

Hey Boy
Why you didn’t call me?
I waited for days
I can’t believe you didn’t call

Hey Boy
Why you didn’t call me?
I waited for days
I can’t believe you didn’t call

A. You’re gay
B. You’ve got a girlfriend
C. You kinda thought I came on too strong or
D. I just wasn’t your thing
no ring

Hey Boy
Why you didn’t call me?
I waited for days
I can’t believe you didn’t call

When we sat outside for an hour at the party and talked
I thought something good could be starting
It’s not a lot that I want
just some talking
and really, you just injured my pride

Hey Boy
Why you didn’t call me?
I waited for days
I can’t believe you didn’t call

Susan said that maybe you’re scared
Shelly says there always is a reason
and Chris said you’re probably surrounded by girls and I’m just not one of them you’re needing

 

richard cory

They say that Richard Cory owns one half of this whole town,
With political connections to spread his wealth around.
Born into society, a banker’s only child,
He had everything a man could want: power, grace, and style.

But I work in his factory
And I curse the life I’m living
And I curse my poverty
And I wish that I could be,
Oh, I wish that I could be,
Oh, I wish that I could be
Richard Cory.

The papers print his picture almost everywhere he goes:
Richard Cory at the opera, Richard Cory at a show.
And the rumor of his parties and the orgies on his yacht!
Oh, he surely must be happy with everything he’s got.

But I work in his factory
And I curse the life I’m living
And I curse my poverty
And I wish that I could be,
Oh, I wish that I could be,
Oh, I wish that I could be
Richard Cory.

He freely gave to charity, he had the common touch,
And they were grateful for his patronage and thanked him very much,
So my mind was filled with wonder when the evening headlines read:
“Richard Cory went home last night and put a bullet through his head.”

But I work in his factory
And I curse the life I’m living
And I curse my poverty
And I wish that I could be,
Oh, I wish that I could be,
Oh, I wish that I could be
Richard Cory.

(“Richard Cory” by Simon & Garfunkel)

the time has come….

“The time has come,” the Walrus said,
“To talk of many things:
Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–
Of cabbages–and kings–
And why the sea is boiling hot–
And whether pigs have wings.”

a day in the sun…

It was a beautiful sunny day today.  Awesome start to Memorial Day weekend and I definitely took advantage of it by spending it outside.

shake shack UWS

After the gym this morning I headed up a few blocks to the Shake Shack in the Upper West Side (above).  Yea I know…gym plus shackburger doesn’t quite add up to healthy, but it sounded sooo good..haha.

Museum of Natural History

Took my shake shack to go and walked towards one of my favorite museums–The Museum of Natural History (above)–across from Central Park.

Natural History Museum Steps

Lunch on the steps of the Museum and people watching (above).  Yay for Rainbow sandals weather!

excessive cola drinking = paralysis

cola

Watch out cola addicts…Caught a headline on today one of those Metro papers they pass out every morning on your way to the subway and it said that cola could cause paralysis.  So I skimmed the article in a paper that someone had just left on the seat next to me.  Continually consuming large amounts of cola greatly lowers potassium, calcium, and mineral levels and can cause rapid demineralization of of teeth and bones, with leads to rapid drops in potassium, muscle mass loss, and then muscles weakening to the point of paralysis. 

Sounds all pretty scary considering how much soda people consume all the time.  I think you have to drink more than 3 liters or so of cola a day for it to be a problem.  (Some of the studies tested people for 2-9 liters of cola consumption).  I can’t fathom drinking that much soda, but then again there was a woman on tv who drank on average 70 cafe lattes a week so I suppose anythings possible.  So not to fear for all of us just occasional cola drinkers.  Having some cola with a well balanced diet is just fine.  I suppose it’s just like anything else, if you have waaaaay too much of one thing it’s bound to cause your body harm.

word of the day: synecdoche

big chair

synecdoche – noun (si-nek-duh-kee)

A figure of speech in which a part is used for the whole (as hand for sailor), the whole for a part (as the law for police officer), the specific for the general (as cutthroat for assassin), the general for the specific (as thief for pickpocket), or the material for the thing made from it (as steel for sword).

Also the title of a really great movie and fun word to say!….

come out sun!…

olafur eliasson_tate modern

It’s 55 degrees, midday, in the middle of May in New York??  There is definitely something wrong with that picture.  I’m ready for this rainy, colder, Fall-like weather to end and Summer weather (minus the humidity) to come.  Sunny lunches in the park sound wonderful to me.  Sun, it’s time to come out so I can enjoy wearing skirts, dresses, tanks, and shorts and put away the warm jacket. 🙂

word of the day: coruscate

sparkle

coruscate – verb
