Shithouse rat

I'm a bipolar writer in the Naked City. I'm not playing with a full deck. I don't have all my dots on the dice. My cheese is sliding off my cracker. I don't have both oars in the water. I'm a bubble off plum. In other words, I'm crazier than a shithouse rat. These are my stories. Comments--short or long, nasty or nice--always welcome!

Come on over to the DARK side!

Originally uploaded by LarimdaME.
My New York City/real estate obsessed doppelganger Elvira Dark has just launched a companion blog to Shithouse rat called All things New York--devoted exclusively to everything and anything about the city--real estate, neighborhoods, safety, 9/11 issues, things to avoid, must-see and off the beaten path attractions, one day and weekend getaways, insider tips, local news and politics, and more.

Generally, there will be several different categories of posts:

Detailed information about all aspects of New York City living, with plenty of features covering all five boroughs and points beyond with directions on how to get there, plus lots of useful links for further information.

Invaluable info from a born and bred New Yorker you won't find in the guidebooks--or probably anywhere else.

Culled from Elvira Black's "New York Stories," a regular feature column that can also be found at Blogcritics Magazine, along with plenty of fresh new posts for good measure.

Got a question about New York? Just ask and I'll give you the lowdown.

Suggestions for topics you'd like to see covered are welcome.

Comments, both naughty and nice, are warmly encouraged. So lay it on me, I can take it!

Thanks for missing me!

Your new blog doesn't accept "anon" or "other" comments. Since i don't have a blog anymore, i can't post.

Think it's an excellent idea :) Though I can't think of any questions I need answered about NY

If you want categories, I strongly suggest wordpress though blogger's better for images

Aside from the complex physical connections that make up its infrastructure, the Internet is facilitated by bi- or multi-lateral commercial contracts (e.g., peering agreements), and by technical specifications or protocols that describe how to exchange data over the network. Indeed, the Internet is essentially defined by its interconnections and routing policies.

As of December 30, 2007, 1.319 billion people use the Internet according to Internet World Stats. Writing in the Harvard International Review, philosopher N.J. Slabbert, a writer on policy issues for the Washington, D.C.–based Urban Land Institute, has asserted that the Internet is fast becoming a basic feature of global civilization, so that what has traditionally been called "civil society" is now becoming identical with information technology society as defined by Internet use. - web design company, web designer, web design india

Shall I call you Elvira, or is it Jackie Boone? You are apparently a miserable and ungrateful liar. I have known Debby Frank for almost 3 decades, your depiction
of her couldn’t be further from the truth. Debby is a one of the most caring
and generous people I know.

She is an experienced and successful Realtor who purposely goes out of her way to help buyers who are otherwise ignored by brokers. Often this is because of buyers who are not realistic about what they can afford, in other words, a complete waste of time, sound familiar?

It is obvious you make a living falsifying facts and statements, purely to entertain
your readers. Your lack of compassion and honesty demonstrate just how empty a person you are. Your readers certainly deserve more.

You referenced Debby’s family in your article. Again, your assessment is way off base.
She is a dedicated mom, and has a wonderful loving family. She has always put her family ahead of her career.

Jackie, I think you do your readers a huge disservice and should find a new profession. One that demands honesty and integrity, which you clearly lack, and hopefully will bring you the salvation you need.
