Random Ramblings

Have you ever had a female cab driver? I've had female bus drivers and subway drivers, but never a female taxi driver.

Let's say that you are the General Manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Who would you try to acquire to help improve the FIRST-PLACE team in the NL Central and what would you be willing to trade? (For example, what would you trade for Carlos Beltran or would you trade for Carlos Beltran?)

There's an expression "happy as a clam." Are clams really happy? Who decided that clams are happy?

One of the reasons why I will never drink and drive: I struggle to recite the alphabet backwards while sober.

I saw a headline over the weekend that Rebekah Brooks was arrested. My initial reaction was what did the teen singer of "Friday” do to warrant an arrest.

Have you seen the trailer for Rise of the Planet of the Apes? There's no way that humans can defeat these apes especially if they have weapons.

True story. I've never seen a female cabbie in NY. Just now I went out for lunch and a cab passed me being driven by a woman. So, apparently we do have at least one female cabbie in the city.

I think happy as a clam is in reference to its shape. Its sort of in the shape of a smile. I'm sorry to say I don't know who decided this.

Christian - Thanks for replying. Good to see that there is exactly one female cabbie in NYC! I also appreciate the happy as a clam explanation.
