That’s nice

World-Kindness-DayThe Twitter-sphere is all abuzz about today’s holiday of note –

World Kindness Day

This particularly caught my eye because a couple of days ago, the New York Times reported on a recent study that suggests the two most important qualities to affect the longevity of a relationship are generosity and kindness.

So, while you may want to perform a random act of kindness or two to celebrate the day, being kind on a more regular basis could have a big ol’ karma kick-back for you and your special someone.

Just saying.

Crying in my chicken

After being dumped, Tan Shen from Chengdu, China spent a week in her local Kentucky Fried Chicken.

KFC

She initially wanted some chicken wings and a quiet place to think. But then she ended up staying day after day in the 24-hour-a-day restaurant, which attracted media attention.

She eventually lost her taste for chicken, quit her job and went to visit her parents.  I’m sure she realized her mistake….

Taco Bell would have been so much better.

This is heady stuff

Tonight I surrender my blog to the glory of the Babushka Dogs that are taking over Instagram.

Nothing I have to say is more important or will make you feel happier.

Enjoy!

Something’s rotten

With the world’s attention focused on Ebola — and rightly so — a common fungus is sweeping through our neighborhoods and befalling our jack-o’-lanterns.

And Halloween is over two weeks away!

We’ve got moldy pumpkins on the streets of the Upper West Side — do you?

These proud symbols of trick-or-treat are being eaten away before the kids have donned their costumes… collected their candy… or tossed their first cookie.

It isn’t right.  In fact, it’s…

GHOULISH

TODAY!!

Uptown girl

When we were young, my sister and I spent many a fun-filled afternoon playing “camping” with our Barbie dolls — and our brother’s GI Joe action figures — in our family’s formal living room.

(Other than Christmas, it was the best use of that room.)

The green carpet was obviously the grassy forest floor. We used Kleenex as sleeping bags. And Dr. Seuss books tilted open were the perfect tents. Plus, GI Joe had a jeep, so there were lots of four wheelin’ and other shenanigans.

Those were simpler times. Barbie wanted simpler things.

Today’s doll?

Embarrassing.
