update: boots update

I don't think I ever really concluded my boots quest. And I felt that since the boots I found have probably been my most prized possession for the past 3 months, I should let you all in on the secret. I could not find the exact boots from the Gap model, but I did find these puppies, at Foot Locker, of all places:

Abacos Boots by Sperry. They are amazing. I did change up their look a bit though, I don't wear them folded down with the fur out, that's not how I roll. So use your imagination a bit. These boots, unfolded so they are kind of taller boots and kind of resemble the initial boots I was seeking.

But guess what? I like these more. And, as an extra special bonus, I fell into owning two pairs. So I will be rocking these boots for a long time to come.

Hooray, boots!

can't wait to get old

I saw this advertisement online:

So naturally, I decided to try it out for myself.... here are my results:

Oh my goodness! I'm going to look just like Demi Moore! Awesome. I can't wait to get old. Retirement and great looks... so much to look forward to.

be italian

The movie Nine was somewhat of a letdown after hearing about how great it was supposed to be, as well as having anticipations with such an all star cast. Don't get me wrong, everyone in the movie did an amazing job acting and with their character, but the plot seemed to fall flat. And so did some of the musical numbers. But not this one:

Fergie, Be Italian. From Nine.

Save yourself the time and money on the movie until it comes out on DVD... Until then, just download this song and Cinema Italiano that Kate Hudson sings. (and Penelope Cruz's song if you're feelin frisky)

wise quote of the day

“If I smear glitter on my face, you don’t have a choice — you will be more attracted to me. It’s part of our brand makeup. So anyway, then I started thinking, why just do my eyes? Why not my entire body? … It’s kind of like become my thing. … Have I made out with chicks? Hell yeah. Did I think it was awesome? Hell yeah. I wouldn’t call myself bi. Like, if I didn’t eat meat for a week, it doesn’t make me a vegetarian. So I like people, and that’s just it. I like people.”

hello, friday

Miserable Marci’s Friday Rant – Cab Drivers

So last night I’m making my way home and I get to the end of the 6 train and decide I don’t feel much like walking to WTC path and waiting forever for the path in the cold. And a taxi pulls up. So I ask the man behind the wheel, “How much to Jersey City?” He replies, in an accent that would prove to be my nemesis, “Seventeen.” I say “Word, yo. Take me to my abode.”

And off we go. Really all the man had to do was drive one block, drive me through a tunnel, then drop me off at home. Only took 10 minutes, tops. Seems pretty simple, no? It was. Until we arrived at my house and I gave him $20 and open the door to get out of the car. And he says, “No no no no. I said 70.”


You think I am going to pay you 7-0 dollars to drive me through a tunnel? Not gonna happen. So I told him this. And he’s like “Jersey City is far away… blah blah blah… tolls.”

And I’m all like “I took a cab home from way uptown once and it was only $50 with tax and now you want way more than that to drive me through a tunnel? I’m not paying it and it’s late and we’re right outside my house and I want to climb into my bed and sleep forever until I have to go to work tomorrow but you are impeding me from doing this because you don’t know how to speak properly and then try to rip off your fares. So I’ll give you $35 if you just go away now.”

We settled on $40. So… because this man didn’t know how to properly communicate in my native tongue in my native country I had to pay more money than we originally had agreed on.

I mean okay, I can see how 17 could sound like 70, but that is such an unreasonable amount to charge someone for where he was taking me that it didn’t even register in my head that he could be saying 70.

I can fly Jetblue to Buffalo and back for $70 (when they are having a sale, but still.) COME ON MAN.

Here are some other things you can do with $70:

  • Buy a pair of jeans at the Gap
  • Go out for a nice dinner
  • Buy a ticket to a Broadway musical
  • Buy 70 things off the dollar menu at McDonald’s

Does this man really think his ten-minute drive was equivalent in value to 70 double cheeseburgers?

Well it wasn’t.

So, to all cab drivers who cannot speak properly and try to rip people off:

end rant.

farewell jersey shore...

Tonight marks the end of the most fun pop culture has had in a long, long while - it's the finale of Jersey Shore! In the words of Snooki, I say "Wahhh." What will I do each week without my dose of my guidos and guidettes, without watching Ronnie beat the shit out of people on the boardwalk and put up with the sweetest bitch I'll ever meet's crap? What will I do without watching the Situation as he navigates GTL every day, and without Snooki being...well, Snooki.

I think it's safe to say that watching Jersey Shore has changed my life. It has fundamentally changed me as a person. My skin is turning tanner, although I haven't been out in the sun at all. When I see certain girls out I ponder if they would be a grenade, and my instincts to fight people have grown exponentially. My blood alcohol level content is also really high, even when I'm not drinking. And when I bleed, I bleed tomato sauce.

All of which I think are improvements on my former self. So why must Jersey Shore be over? As a small consolation, a one-hour reunion show will be airing tonight immediately following the end of what I think is a very important era in television history.

So tune in tonight and get your last Jersey Shore fix until they (hopefully) give us a season 2. And in the meantime, beat the beat.

MTV @ 10.

NBA Jam is coming back!!!

He's heating up...


Those were legendary sound bytes from a legendary video game that is apparently going to be brought back and updated for Wii. I hope you have to actually make a slam dunk motion with your num-chuck in order to SLAM A JAM.

More on this here.

i want to go to there

Wally Hermes Why Yacht is designed to function less like a yacht, and more like your own personal island. Level 1 includes living space with a beach, spa, dining room, music room and cinema. Level 2 features the suites, lounge and library, and Level 3 is the owner's space. There's also a pool around the helipad for non ocean swimming.

The yacht also includes green features like solar paneling and a diesel-electric propulsion system that helps the boat save up to 200 tons of diesel per year.

If I ever owned (or even was on) a boat like this I would be dead and in heaven.

More about the yacht here.

Miserable Marci’s Monday Rant - what a long strange trip its been.

Oh 2010. I thought you’d be lucky for me when I scratched a lottery ticket right after midnight and won $1 (yes, instead of kissing someone at midnight, I clutched a $1 lottery ticket in my hand and hoped for the best. that's what addicts do). But alas, last night my luck ran out. And it was only January 3rd. If I spoke frequently in Internet lingo, this would be a good place to place the acronym FML.

So I had a flight from Buffalo to NYC that was supposed to leave at 8:55pm last night. I thought that it wouldn’t be too crazy, it wasn’t like I was traveling right on New Year’s Day, just a random Sunday evening. But then the Lake Effect snow demons decided to descend upon Buffalo starting Saturday night, and continue all through the day on Sunday. It made the Bills game look like this:

And it made traveling miserable. I mean, I don’t even have to go out of my way on this Monday morning to sound miserable. But don’t take my word for it. Let’s look at the data:

Left my home in Buffalo: 7:30PM
Arrive at airport: 8:00PM
Plane is delayed.
Time my plane was supposed to leave: 8:55PM
Time I boarded my plane and then sat to de-ice before taking off: 11PM
Time we landed in NYC: 12:43AM

Here’s where it gets real awful. The baggage took its sweet ass time coming down, and then the AIR TRAIN BROKE DOWN.

So I walked all the way back to the taxi stand. Where there was a line of about 100 people in the cold waiting for taxis I can’t afford anyways.

So I walked all the way back to the AirTrain. And waited. Finally it came at 2AM, conveniently dropping me at Jamaica station just in time to see the train to Penn pulling away.

Then I killed myself.

JUST KIDDING! I’m alive now to tell you the tale.

Then I merely waited 15 minutes for the next train, which departed at 2:32AM.

Arrived at Penn Station around 3AM. Walked to PATH station. Waited 20 minutes for PATH to arrive.

Got closer… to my… apartment… and finally… got off the PATH and cabbed it home.

Arrival time in Jersey: 4AM.

Total trip duration: 8.5 hours.
Total methods of transport I used: 6
Realizing you’d rather kill yourself than continue on your journey: Priceless.

But it’s okay. It was all worth it. Because now I am at work. My favorite place in the world.

End rant.
