New York Hack

"It was another slow shift tonight. And though there weren't many people taking cabs, there were more than enough asshole drivers on the streets." New York Hack, the blog of a NYC female cabbie. "Another girl I drove tonight had an emergency of her own, though of a different caliber. I overheard her on the phone explaining to a friend how she was rushing over to her boyfriend's house to have "make-up sex." It sounded urgent enough to me, so I got her there as quickly as I could." Pictures included.

she was rushing over to her boyfriend's house to have "make-up sex."

Intercourse with cosmetics sounds unpleasant and unsanitary.

Lame.

Wow, the life of a cabbie is actually slightly less boring than I imagined. Color me fascinated!

News flash: the girl who had to be driven to the emergency room with a sea urchin in her foot has just found the blog, and written back to say she's all right. No word yet from make-up sex girl, though.

Seven Days, Vermont's weekly alt, has a regular column by a cab driver that is pretty interesting, but much less titillating (or sordid) than one might find in NYC.

"Just because you can push someone who's two heads shorter than you doesn't mean your dick is gonna grow any bigger."

Ah, the wisdom of the streets!

This is actually very good.

Lame.

Hardly! I prefer blogs like this over the average geek and/or record collector and/or soft-core liberal and/or insane conservative ones. The stories are interesting, and she has an engaging writing style. It gets three cheers from me and mine.

OH yeah, this is good. I've been reading it for a little while now, and it was mentioned on salon.com yesterday.

There are some entries where she says people have recognized her. Is her picture buried anywhere in any of those entries?

Fun post. But Omie, you forgot the via tag...

The best thing to happen to cabs in a long time is Cash Cab. Its amazing how much some people know and how quickly other people get tossed into the street.

"she was rushing over to her boyfriend's house to have "make-up sex." . . . Pictures included"

Ok, that was just misleading.

The Night Cabbie had a column in the San Francisco Chronicle from 1996 to 2004. Pretty interesting stuff.

How do you get sea urchins embedded in your foot and not do anything about it until you get an infection a week later?

The blog is interesting. I'm hoping for some racier stories (a la Taxicab Confessions) as I read on, though.

C-

The concept is be amusing (I shortly maintained a similar photoessay blog about taking the train to rave reviews from friends and families), but the writing on the site is dull and uninspired. Nothing is redeemed.

Maybe someone with a bit more talent will still the idea and make it a bit more compelling.

Great, another blog I will be reading to the detriment of my work life. Don't think psmealy hit the same link I did.

I find that you get the most interesting blogs from the people who are least likely to have one. Great find.

Not as good as the National Lampoon's "Tales from Bernie X", but good in its way.
