B!tch on the Street

Days and nights in New York City are tough enough without having to deal with all the sh!t this city dishes up. B!tch on the Street tells the tale of two ladies making their way through this crazy town...one freak at a time.

Gay or European?


I usually don't comment on people's wardrobes because that's not what BOTS is about. Trust me there have plenty of "just because they make it in your size doesn't mean that you should wear it" photos that I could have taken but I chose not to. However the other day I saw this guy wearing capri jeans. To me capri pants should be strictly reserved for women. Then I thought am I out of touch? (I'm not that OLD!) Do men wear capris now? So I started asking around...friends, co-workers, family and the general consenus is that he's either gay or European. This guy really could have gone either way. You can't tell from the this picture because well walking and trying to get the shot and keep up with him at the same time is usually pretty hard but he was wearing a tight yellow sleeveless shirt. So what do you guys think - should men wear capri pants?

The Return of the Watermelon Lady




Whoa the month of June has just been flying by! I can't believe it's almost July 4th Tuesday (doesn't have the same ring as 4th of July Weekend!)! Anyway, I stopped in Starbucks the other day because I needed some $5 iced refreshment. I went there in the afternoon instead of in the morning and guess who was occupying her usual table sans watermelon?!? LINDA!! She had tons of stuff with her so I'm guessing she's definitely homeless BUT she was charging a CELL PHONE!! Yes you read correctly she's got herself a cell phone. Something tells me that all is not as it appears with her but hey this is NYC anything goes...... EXCEPT this!! As I was sitting there cooling off Linda whips out a pair of tweezers and proceeds to not only pluck her mustache but her NOSE HAIRS! Her NOSE HAIRS people!! AND she's just letting them drop all over the place! OMG I almost lost my $5 iced coffee. It was so disgusting. So, since I had to be grossed out you KNOW I had to take pictures and share them with all of you! Kat and I will be back to full time posting in another week - we've missed the blogging world too much! (OK let's be real Kat has just missed the outside world in general!)

The Annoying Fan!


This woman - the one in the pinkish shirt with the rat's nest for hair - was soooooo annoying at the Met's game this weekend that I HAD to take a break from my vacation and post about her sorry ass. Now let me just say that I am a NY fan - if I'm at a Mets game, I'm rooting for the Mets, at a Yankee game then I'm rooting for the Yankees (when they play each other well that's a whole different story for another blog). So anyway the Mets were playing Baltimore at this particular game and every time they got a hit or scored she was very loudly and obnoxiously cheering for the Orioles. She was the ONLY one in the section cheering for the other team. Now of course all of the Mets fans are getting pissed but hey everyone has a right to cheer for their own team right? Then she goes only to loudly proclaim that she's not an Orioles fan but a diehard Yankees fan. For those of you who don't live in the tri-state area, Mets and Yankees fans HATE each other! So of course now the Mets are losing and it's only making this loud mouth cheer louder. She was also drinking heavily which was causing her words to slur and her language to become more R rated than PG. Normally I wouldn't care about that but there were little kids EVERYWHERE! All these sweet little kids with their Mets shirts on, trying to watch the game and now they have to be bombarded with the rants of this foul mouthed bitch! Even her husband (the bald head in front of her) wouldn't sit next to her. At one point the Orioles got a homerun and she stood up with her hotdog that had sauerkraut on it and started screaming. So now she's spewing sauerkraut out of her mouth and it's dripping off her hotdog! And wouldn't you know it - something from that bitch's mouth hit my Kate Spade bag! Oh hell no! BOTS couldn't take it any longer! I was just about to get up and give her a piece of my mind when I got another idea...I told on her! Yes you heard me correctly I told on her. One of the attendants was walking by and I grabbed him and told him how obnoxious the woman was being. The people in the rows in front of me and in back of me heard what I was saying and turned around to back me up. This nice gentleman then went over and talked to her - what was said I couldn't tell you but I can tell you that she kept her fat mouth shut for the rest of the game! AND one of my fellow game goers sent me a beer (I was in the waitress service section) as a thank you! I was a tattler and damn it felt good!

Vacation...

Pookie and I have a very busy month coming up so we've decided to take a little hiatus from BOTS.

Pookie's main squeeze (Bob) will be taking her jet setting around the world and Kat has some legal issues that need to be attended to (cough cough...30 day incarcaration...she's innocent, but did the MAN care? Noooooo...). Um, anyhoo..

These and other things will be keeping us busy for the month of June (and let's face it...the 4th of July is going to be off the hook as usual, so we probably won't recover until sometime later that month).

If we can, we'll post, but until then, our dear readers, enjoy your summers!

Don't worry, we won't forget you!

Remember to read our linked friends over to the right.

Keepin' it rizzle...

Love,
Pookie & Kat

Ride on the subway: $2.00

Deodorant at Duane Reade: $3.99

Actually using that deodorant especially when it's my head that is stuck under your rotten a$$ armpit on the subway on a sweltering humid NYC day: Priceless




Happy Friday!!!!

***Watermelon Watch 2006***

This is normally Pookie's gig, but I had a confirmed sighting kids!

Last NIGHT (I'm talking like 9:00pm) a friend and I were coming from dinner and were walking towards the nearest 6 train entrance.

I was yammering on and on and suddenly he said, "Oh. My. God." and stopped me with the old mom's-arm-across-the-chest-when-the-car-stops-quickly move.

"What?" I asked, kind of annoyed.

"Look!" he exclaimed.

And there she was. In a Starbucks. Nowhere near the Starbucks where Pookie has been seeing her. LWL. That's right, Linda, the Watermelon Lady.

"Get your phone!" my friend cried. "Hurry! She's finishing up!"

Sure enough she was. I got the phone and whipped it out as fast as I could. What you see here (admittedly, not my best camera phone work) is LWL putting her watermelon (it was about 1/4 a watermelon), with plastic utensils and all, into a bag. You can make out the red and green (and white) clearly.

She is most likely homeless, but definitely crazy. She had all sorts of bags full of sh!t beside her and her hair was all jammed up.

She is now a NYC phenomenon.

Thanks, Linda.
