PriASS!


Are all Prius drivers douchebags? Or have they all joined a club where douchebaggery is the way of life?

Why is it when you are driving around Los Angeles and someone is in front of you going at least 10 miles UNDER the speed limit, 9.9 times out of 10, it is some A-hole in a Prius? If they are texting as well, then it is even worse because you can add weaving to the already bad driving.

The people I encounter on the roads that are in their Prius all drive way too slow and that is dangerous. I don't understand why these people think that it is okay to act like that.

They think they are doing the world a huge service by driving a hybrid, and the truth is, they aren't. My old fashion car gets almost as much mpg as a Prius and guess what folks? I am not a douchebag when driving. I go the speed limits, I pay attention and I actually use the turn signal.

Side note: why do Prius owners think they don't need to use a turn signal?

UGH! The thing is, to the group of jerks driving these ugly, expensive, cars, you aren't really saving anything because the pollution caused by nickel and rare earth metals (dysprosium and neodymium) used in the Prius battery are just as bad on the environment as petrol used in normal cars.

That said, it is obvious that you aren't so smart because you spent $15K + more than I did on my car for the occasional 10mpg more. 10 whole miles more? You do the math, you really didn't save any money, and then you went and joined the asshole driving club.

Why? Why? Why? Do you Prius owners insist on driving this way?

If you really want to save the planet, get out of your twenty five THOUSAND dollar car, buy a bike and pedal around the city, oh but wait, then you won't be able to text all the live long day-what a concept.

Funny how drivers of other hybrids don't act like this, so I wonder is it in Toyota's contract that you have to be an ass, douchebag or wanker to own one of these cars?

I am just sayin'!

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…

Where Has Customer Service Gone? Taos Footwear is Horrible

AVOID TAOS FOOTWEAR unless you want to be treated like shit.
Usually I like to take the high road and let things go, but after thinking about this for the last 24 hours, I'm afraid to say that I can't not tell what happened when I returned a pair of shoes that didn't fit me to Taos footwear.

First of all, I love their shoes. I ordered four pairs at $100 or more in less than a month, but they don't care about that, they just needed to be right and right meant downright abusive and awful to a paying customer.

Beginning of June, I order a pair of Taos shoes and love them.
End of June, I order a second pair, the Hey Jute because they were on sale for only $100 instead of $130.

The canvas is super tight so I call them up and speak to a woman, Lisa I believe is her name, she was amazing BTW, she is the only one who is decent at this company-or at least who I have talked to.  She said if they were hurting my feet to return them, but they didn't pay for shipping. I wasn…
