It was a blurr

Hard to believe its been over a month since I last blogged but it has. Apologies to any regular readers. Life just sort of took over [ie: work] and having resolved to go to bed earlier / not start new tasks after 11pm meant my blogging took a hit. So this is what happened… I … Continue reading

Equal Rights. It’s just so obvious.

I believe in equal rights. I believe that people don’t choose their sexuality. That much like the color of your eyes you’re stuck with whatever nature decided for you. As for marriage, for me it has always been about the union of two people who love one another. Two people who are willing to make … Continue reading

Signs of Spring

It’s been a long yet short winter. November and December were really mellow more like an extension of fall. True winter temps didn’t really kick in till January. January and February were predictably cold, rainy and snowy with a few random warm days. March is the unsure month: warm, sunny, rainy, snowy, cold, we’ve had … Continue reading

Intersecting Circles.

The beauty of New York is that it is ultimately a small town. I met Denise at a Valentine’s Day party. I met Laura and Ken at Good Spirits. I met Jimmy at a Sandy Relief fundraiser. Tonight they were all at an Edible Magazine subscriber appreciation event hosted in the kitchens of Union Square … Continue reading

A Perfect Weekend. In Good Company

I’ve never been a fan of the Hamptons, a part of Long Island where every summer a large contingent of seemingly moneyed New Yorkers spend their summer.  To me, it’s like Manhattan-at-the-Beach. The scenery is beautiful, the houses huge (who needs that many rooms!) but the idea of spending my weekend in towns where Main … Continue reading

Fabulously Exhausting.

Part of the beauty of living in NYC is that sometimes life’s adventures snowball and you find yourself caught up in a whirlwind of amazing experiences. My life last week, was quite fabulous but also quite exhausting: Sunday: Brunch with oyster topped Bloody Marys to celebrate the crutches being retired followed by strolling through Cobble Hill window shopping. … Continue reading

Crutch. Step. Karma.

I’ve spent the last few days hobbling around NYC on crutches to the point that yesterday when I graduated to using just the one, my shoulders thanked me. It’s been a long week. Monday, I attempted commuting to work by subway and though not impossible it was so physically exhausting that I had to take a … Continue reading

I Need an App for That

About three years ago I turned off cable and switched to watching TV via streaming channels only. To make it more enjoyable I bought a Roku player that enables me to watch my shows on an actual TV instead of my laptop. To watch my favorite shows without having to scour the internet: I subscribe … Continue reading

Crutches: Day 4

Forgive the “woe, is me” post but my arms and shoulders are killing me. My left calf muscle, which I’d been doing rehab on for fatigue of the soleus muscle, throbs dully.  My exercise and diet plan for my friend’s wedding in 7 weeks has been derailed and I passed out at 8pm last night from the sheer exhaustion of … Continue reading

Facebook Feed Oscars Recap

I skipped the Oscars this year opting instead for a marathon streaming of Line of Duty on Hulu. After the series ended I checked my Facebook feed to see what I had missed. It would seem… there were too many men with long blonde hair people were loving to hate or hating to love Anne Hathaway most of … Continue reading
