Another Thought....

Which restaurant will be the first to have Valet Stroller Parking?

Just a Thought....

I think its about time to tell the people what SOWA really stands for: Severely Overprivileged White Assholes.

I don't think that'll make it into the window at Gibson Domain Domain Domain anytime soon.

Random Acts of Entitlement....

I guess this would be the closest category. Spotted about 1 month ago, on the corner of Waltham and Shawmut: What appeared to be the very blonde and white offspring of some overprivileged yupple (yuppie couple) in a very high-end stroller being pushed by an African American young woman who was probably the nanny. As the woman pushed the little tyke, she yelled into her cell phone just about every obscenity I've ever heard (and I've heard 'em all).

This is by no means a criticism against African Americans or any other minority. In fact, I'd probably choose to spend my free time with the above-referenced nanny rather than a yupple that didn't seem to think careful interviewing was necessary in their choice of child care professional.

On the other hand, I can't wait for next summer's Ropes & Gray family summer outing when junior shouts "listen, motherfucker" to the managing partner. On the ride back to West Canton Street, I 'll bet you'll be able to cut the silence in that Range Rover with a knife!!

Random Acts of Mis-fashion

Spotted today: Two (2) pairs of Uggs on two (2) different women on Tremont Street. One near Garden of Eden and one near northwest corner of Tremont and Dartmouth. This despite warnings that Uggs were in fact over on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and both the British and American versions of What Not to Wear at least a year ago. Why is it that a) Boston has a disproportionate number of make-over participants on WNTW and b) the make-over particpants from Boston stand out for their outrageous hideousity?!! Just a thought.

In New York, the first nip in the air brings with it the pleasant "thwump" of a Chanel tweed jacket being buttoned. In Los Angeles, the sexy "whoosh" of a long-sleeved Cavalli blouse. In Boston, its the "whoosh" of unwashed polarfleece and the "thwump" of one's feet going into a pair of Uggs. Uggh.
Just started blog today - will have much more in weeks to come. Postings will fall into three categories: Random Acts of Entitlement, Pretentious & New, and Local Acts of Mis-fashion. Readers are invited to submit photos of previous incarnations of current South End businesses to show how the neighborhood has been straightened and yuppified beyond repair.
