Just a Thought....
Random Acts of Entitlement....
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.
