    What's On Your Mind?

    I'm more worried about long term effects. Old injuries always come back to haunt us when we're older and I want my golden years to be as pain free as possible :)

    What's On Your Mind?

    I get a kick out of watching grown adults (many are middle aged) traipsing around in motorized scooters. Aren't these things essentially toys designed primarily for young teens and preteens? Sometimes I wonder if a 45 year old buys and rides one just to try to capture their youth sort of like...

    What's On Your Mind?

    Is it normal for a package shipped from Italy to make it to France (Roissy) via FedEx but then end up back in Italy where it originated? I've been tracking something I ordered from a premium steelbook label in Italy and that's been the trajectory so far (final destination NYC). Just a tad bit...

    I've been taking bp meds for a few years...never had any side effects (that I know of). I'm supposed to get them refilled every 90 days but last month my Dr.'s office denied a refill and I had to travel all the way to them to have a chat about it. If I'm supposed to be diligently taking meds for...

    I'm game as long as people stop counteracting. The purpose of this thread is to spontaneously state what's on one's mind at the moment - whatever that may be. Posting followup comments is encouraged but let's leave the gatekeeping out.

    Surgeons are REQUIRED to wear masks. And, what, exactly, are people afraid of becoming infected with? The common cold? Coronavirus is no longer a threat after the CDC declared the emergency over. It's over, folks. You can take those masks off now.

    What's On Your Mind?

    As rare as quakes are in this region, they seem to be increasing in frequency. Thankfully, not in intensity. A magnitude 6 or higher for the NYC area could be potentially devastating. I'd hate to be in the Holland or Lincoln tunnels if one strikes.

    What's On Your Mind?

    I was using a basement restroom at work so I did not feel it but my co-worker who was covering for me in the lobby did. He said there were windows rattling. I missed the whole thing. Earthquakes are pretty rare for NYC but I vividly remember a brief shaker when I was about 7, so around '81. My...

    What's On Your Mind?

    It's been over a year since I've given two sh*ts about coronavirus. Kinda wanted to put all that craziness behind me but too many people are still walking around with masks on and it's driving me crazy. You can't get away from it. Are people covering up nowadays just to avoid the Flu? The CDC...

    My excuse for not playing the Lottery more often is I didn't have any newsstands or bodegas within walking distance who sold tickets but now the State Lottery Commission (in NY) created an app where people can bet online or via their phone. I've never signed up because I still think playing...

    What's On Your Mind?

    I suspect women would prefer shopping by themselves and not have anyone shadowing them everywhere. I used to hate being dragged along whenever my Mom or sister asked me to join them, probably to help carry bags lol. Women take forever making up their minds. My grandma used to spend hours...

    I don't go to the movies nearly as often as I used to but it's not because I don't want to. I really miss going but there just aren't enough "big" films being made anymore. I want to see Dune 2 so I got on Fandango to reserve tickets and, man, it's worse than I thought. The AMC 25 near me has a...

    What's On Your Mind?

    Literally the same day I purchased and wore a sleek Sean John jacket, it got caught on a scaffolding bolt as I was walking down a Manhattan street and managed to tear a hole on it. Sixty bucks down the drain. I stopped buying expensive clothes during my late 20's, and by expensive I mean $50...

    What's On Your Mind?

    People can be so gullible sometimes. To think that an $1,100 jacket will actually keep them warmer than a $60 one. Talking about those ridiculously expensive Canada Goose jackets that people wear more as status symbols. Every time I see someone wearing one all I can think of is "Oh, look at me...

    What's On Your Mind?

    ^ There's an infatuation with "European-ness" washing over everything. Outdoor cafes that serve $9 cups a Joe, fancy "patisserie" wannabes, overpriced restaurants. There's very little out there for real, everyday people. Funny because "everyday" folks still vastly outnumber silver spooned trust...

    One of the last remaining bastions of affordability, Jack's, a local chain of discount stores, has closed in NYC. Pretty sure it's a typical greedy landlord raising the rent sky high situation. I'll never understand this mentality that everything has to now be either a luxury boutique or a...

    The 3 day weekend threw me off completely this year. I missed my garbage pickup. Was so sure it was Monday.

    What's On Your Mind?

    I always feel awkward when I talk to someone and I don't realize they have in-ear headphones and they have to take them off to hear what I'm saying. It feels like I'm messing with their lives or something.

    What's On Your Mind?

    People from ALL walks of life and age groups are now beating transit fares as casually as brushing their teeth and I don't understand how they can do it. I feel guilty if I walk away with a paper clip at work. White collar workers, blue collar, kids, seniors, foreigners - all stroll past the...

    What's On Your Mind?

    So I found a great new dentist (so far). Turns out I had an infection under a crown I had put in a few years ago and had to have the molar extracted. They didn't mention anything about having a fake tooth put in to replace the extracted one so I'm guessing in my case it won't be necessary. I've...

    What's On Your Mind?

    I lucked out and found a "willing" dentist lol. My insurance provider threw up a list of names and all were listed as "accepting new patients" - maybe it's because I'm in a major metro area and there's an abundance of dentists? In any case, I hope I can remedy this by week's end and it won't be...

    What's On Your Mind?

    Spent the long weekend popping Motrin to get rid of a toothache. Now I have to look for a dentist. How does one pick a dentist from a list of hundreds of names? Maybe I should just throw a few names into a hat and pick one lol. I've already had two root canals - the thought of a third scares me...

    I've decided to forego bottled water in favor of filtered tap water. I bought a Brita pitcher that uses, I'm assuming, an advanced filter called Elite, which costs a little more, obviously, but is supposed to get rid of more crap. I'm hearing more and more about plastics and the carcinogenic...

    As an addendum to my post above, for once I'd like to see a New Year's Eve countdown where the MC is counting down minute by minute uninterrupted for at least 5 minutes before midnight. I guess something like this isn't economically feasible for a network.

    What's On Your Mind?

    The Dick Clark New Year's Eve show on ABC was never rousing entertainment but it was always tradition in my family on the nights we didn't go out, as I'm sure it is with many families. I no longer have cable and I don't subscribe to any streaming services but I tried out the Youtube TV app for a...
