A lot is going on this week....

First of all, if you haven't already heard, NYC is facing a terrible transit strike. Although I work in Queens and drive to my job, I see the traffic on the otherside on my way to work. I feel bad for the commuters. I hear horror stories of carpooling and being stuck in traffic for 3 hours! And crazy stories of people walking all the way home. That's just nuts...but good for you! Don't let them paralyze you. Hopefully this will end soon...the newscasters are downright annoying with their dramatic phrases.

On another note, I just finished Memoirs of a Geisha. It was a really good book. Due to my slightly cynical nature I was surprised at the happy ending. It almost seemed unreal. I haven't seen the movie yet, so I am looking forward to it. The book was filled with descriptive passages so I expect to see the vivid imagery brought to life.

I was in a No Doubt faze last week, playing their tunes to and from work...and this week I hear Gwen is pregnant. Well, congrats...because I was skipping the songs that talk about her biological clock ticking. I'm happy for her, as long as she doesn't call the baby Harajuku! Maybe she'll be designing children's wear soon. Oh brother.

Lastly, an xmas pic of my two little cousins: (They look adorable, I had to share)

I hear the book is better than the movie, but since the book was really really good, maybe the movie will be at least okay. Who knows...
