Thoughtful Thursday: Unsystematic Thoughts

By on January 15, 2009 @ 10:26 am


Another snowy day in NYC. Anyone enjoying winter so far?

I opened my e-mail inbox this morning and what did I find? Some clothing designer is having a preview sale for their Spring Collection. We aren’t even past winter yet.


Google Map’s Street View feature is finding kidnapped children. You don’t believe me? Read this article on BBC NEWS. The streets are watching. And you too are being spied on.

Hard Times

Some time I ago I thought to write a post about “Hard Times” but I never got around to it. I think it would have gone something like this:

You know you hit hard times when:

The gym that you go to cuts the towel service so they can save $600k a year but doesn’t tell the members it is going to happen that day. So you come in to sweat it out at the gym and you have nothing to soak up all that perspiration. Sucks to be you, you think. But what about the employees that are left to be yelled at and chastised by the not-too-happy members. Time to look for a new Gym Membership.

Save Money

Living in New York you’ll want to save as much money as possible. Check out one way someone tried to save money by only spending $7 a day. I’m for it, considering I want to cut my expenses by 20%.

The Renaissance

The Renaissance Black Woman has some great posts popping off… check here, here, here, and here for more on Black Men and their thoughts on marriage, being a Young Renaissance Black Man, and being a black man in America.

Free Music

And they talk about McDonald’s Commercials…

People were going hard for McDonald’s and their Nugget commercial with the R&B singer. But is anyone talking about these ads at all? A little questionable, no?

May your day end with a smile.

Yeh that “Cheddar gets Cheddar” ad keeps showing up on HN. Whoever is behind it is dropping some serious dough on Adwords.

No towels at the gym is shocking! Hey, I love this thoughtful Thursday idea. Might do a post next week.

My friends recently spent a few days in Manhattan, and reported how breathtakingly expensive everything was. I’ll have to go check out that article on surviving on $7 a day.
