3698 White guys can't shake.

The end move in politics is to pick up a gun.

Latest video virus, Harlem Shake.  It's disgusting.  Buncha guys bouncing and kicking and throwing their arms around.  That's NOT the Harlem Shake!  It's like people who think belly dancing is just wiggling around.  I want to slap them.  If that's what you want to do, do it, but don't call it something it's not!

THIS is the real Harlem Shake:

Note the shoulders.  That's an integral part of the dance, and that takes practice.


In an email from the township:  "Alternate side parking: If snow falls on an even day, parking is permitted on the odd-numbered side of the street. If snow falls on an odd day, parking is permitted on the even-numbered side of the street."

This has left me confused.  Badly worded, difficult to remember.  Wouldn't "even=even odd=odd" make more sense if you want people to remember?  Also, what happens if it starts snowing at 5 PM and snows continuously until 5 AM?  Which side should you park on to avoid being towed?  No matter where you're parked when you go to bed, it's going to be the wrong side for half the time.


I am sick and tired of being sick and tired.  I have been sick continuously since the hurricane, since late October.  Head cold, chest cold, pneumonia, bronchitis.  I finished the bronchitis antibiotic about five days ago, and three days ago I seem to have started a sinus infection.  I've been sick for more than four months.  I feel stronger than I did after I got out of the hospital, but I still don't want to do much.  (And yes, I'm quitting smoking, since late December.  That adds stress and makes me nasty mean.) 

NJ hates me.  NJ is trying to kill me.  NYC pollution blowing across the bay is destroying my immune system.

Slap me! On Friday Marcia organized a Harlem Shake at work and one woman protested on exactly these grounds. I think we were doing a parody Harlem shake (evidently there's a specific song for the parody, and a pattern of people working, then a cut to same people dancing badly). Now that I think of it it could be racist. The two black women who participated will be horrified by that.
