Get Off the Facebook or....

Rodents riding trains, great street art, attitude. It's all on New York Shitty. This blog is a reminder of why we should all abandon our Facebook accounts and get back to blogging. Mafia Wars? Sorority Life? What State Are You From? Need I list the ways that Facebook is almost as bad as MySpace? Need I also add how much I prefer New York to San Francisco?

UPDATE: Be aware that the photo above is of Miss Edie who is a hamster not a rat and be sure to check out her guardian Victoria's blog: http://victoriabelanger.wordpress.com

blogging? Makes me want to give up the internet and move to nyc!
Or at least get a rat.

Jason - It tells you what has happened to New York now that there is no graffiti on the subway and rats ride the cars not eat the trash.

It looks like a very clean rat (like Paul's grandfather).

ArtSparker - The folks in New York keep calling it a hamster.

I've been thinking about kicking the Facebook habit and getting my blog going again for a while, but I think at this point it's going to take a full-on intervention.

Dave - Several of my friends have said they've sadly missed your blog and that it's invitation only. Come back, come back. I'll call Dr. Phil and tell him there needs to be an emergency intervention. The threat of Dr. Phil is enough to get anyone off his/her ass, I think.

My problem runs deeper. I have no real interest in writing right now, and I wonder where the hell my friends are. This often happens in the run up to my birthday.

Having said that, I'm back to feeling like social media sites are total bullshit, and -with the exception of finding friends at large in other states- probably not worth spending time on.

Good god: the word verification word is 'beast'.

Hey that's my rat, I mean hamster, and she is very clean.

I run a blog as well and it has nothing to do with rodents: http://victoriabelanger.wordpress.com

Rich - I agree, and we think you're a great beast.

Victoria - Duly noted, and we know that Miss Edie is immaculate.

Thanks for the kind props, clarifying Victoria's ownership of these photographs (which I posted with her permission) and that Edie, is in fact, a Hamster.

I realize differentiating hamsters from rats online is difficult. In this respect I have a distinct advantage; my mother was a hamster--- and my father reeks of elderberries. ;)

Happy Thanksgiving, Junk Thief!

P.S.: Your moniker cracks me up. As it would happen I work at a junk shop.

Miss Heather - Thanks for dropping in, and just to clarify I am not a literal junk thief, so your junk is safe should I happen into your shop.

As irony would have it, a friend wrote a play that was produced a couple of years ago at the NYC Cringe Festival called "My Mouse Is Not a Rat".
