Another New England Episode: It's bad to be a dog here..
The only thing I really paid attention to was that this royalty dog was limping really badly and could barely walk. I asked the lady that happened conserning if this dog been in accident. She was happily to announce that it was just an "improvement" his vet recommended: replace a hip. It turns out that all labs, german sheperds and boxers were created by nature the way they need a hip replacement surgery once in a lifetime. She cheerfully explained that EVERY dog on her block had this surgery. It's like you are obligated to do it if you own one of these breeds. She said that their legs created too low to handle all these pressure and eventually they all hurt their knees. I asked how much did it cost (out of curiosity) and it turned out to be $10,000!!!!! Of course you can do a cheep surgery for $4,500 but the leg may fall out - there's no guearntee. And some people actually trying to save money on their dogs this way, cheep unhuman irresponsible bastards! her face turned red when she spoke about her neighbors who didn't go for a "whole package" and now their poor dog is set to suffer 'till rest of his life.
OK, I don't care if reach people throw away their money to pet knee surgery (even though there are thousands of kids dying every day simply because they can't get the medication not to mention surgeries). At this time I concern about poor dogs. Just because vets need more money it doesn't meen dogs have to suffer. Why do they have to go through totally unnecessary surgery??? Pleeeeese, don't tell me that every lab needs an artificial hip. Dogs are dogs. God help them here in sweet town of Darien.

Another New England Episone: Thanks for Saving My Children!
While little angel was swinging on the tire the old lady appeared and asked if I am a mother or a nanny. After I politely acknowledged her about my relationship to these two blond children she shook her head and said how some parents could be irresponsible. She pointed out that Emily's shoes were not ORIGINAL CROCS!!!! Damn, that little alligator on the side was missing!!!! How on the earth she could notice that???? Anyway, she said that it's dangerous to wear "fake ones" since only CROCS are made from bacteria-resistant rubber. OMG, my child was definitely in the danger. Thank you, ladies of Westport for keeping an eye on such important things.
And kudos to CROC's marketing people. Great brainwashing, folks! Keep up a good work.
Gee, I miss South Beach.

101 Reason I don't like Westport, CT
1. Snobby and very unhappy people live here.
Come to the Compo beach - the center of summer activities of the town of Westport. You'll see people dressing like there is the only shop in 100 mile radius and all they sell are RL polos.
Westport is a lovely town where for 2 mln dollars can buy you 1,500 sq.f house and local boutiques won't sell anything cheaper then average person's weekly paycheck.
These peoples lives are spent at parties, charity balls, renovating their enormous colonial style homes homes, playing tennis and polo, and getting their hair done every day.
I love visiting Compo Beach during weekdays afternoons. All local "Alpha Mothers" bring their perfectly groomed children to play in the park. Actually there are nannies who watch kids. All these mommies sit sipping their Starbucks and gossip.
My physician once mentioned me that there no busier doctors in Westport than shrinks. Prozac and Zoloft are part of daily menu of these sweet and calm folks. It took me a while to figure out what's wrong with this picture. I don't know where to start . There are too many factors to mention: religion, way they were brought by, traditions... All that shit that makes them feel proud and special.
To be continued...
Not your boring WASP accessory
I just felt in love in these cufflinks.
I can't believe they sell something cool and fresh at Barney's for $300 a piece. I would totally buy it for my husband, but no way on Earth he is going to wear them.
Wall street folks, any brave ones to experiment at the office?
