Spanish Material Girl

Sometimes it can be very annoying when you are standing in a crowded place such as an elevator, the subway or even a train, and you hear music coming from the iPod ear buds of the person next to you. Such an experience happened to me the other day on my subway commute in the morning. Jam packed on the E train and in walks this big ghetto Spanish/Mexican guy. He's got the gold chains, the shaved head, Jesus tattoos, and some maybe an Echo t-shirt. I can hear muffled music coming out of the iPod buds and at first am quite pissed. Only until I can make out the song. Our Spanish friend was listening to Madonna Material Girl on his morning commute. How sweet.

Meatball Parm Wrap Please

I went to Subway yesterday for my signature turkey provolone on whole wheat bread when I noticed the order ahead of me. Meatballs and cheese on a wrap. Okay there are several things wrong with this. First of all the cardinal rule of any upstanding Italian is to never I repeat NEVER eat Italian food from a fast food establishment. I was barely allowed to eat sauce from a jar let alone Italian food from a restaurant that didn't end in a vowel. So I watched as this guy wrapped up a meatball...I guess would you call it parmigiano...? wrap and thought somewhere one of my Italian relatives is turning in their grave.
