Hot Flash

Summer, that season that if you don’t pay close attention, is gone in a blink of an eye. That’s been my summer. Work got hectic with (a now imminent) product launch and though I had some fun play days, somehow I find myself on the eve of Labor Day weekend having lost count of the 16+ … Continue reading

Color Me Pretty

I’m off to Key West for the weekend – yay! Lazy sunny beach and pool days – double yay! Swimsuit and exposed  skin – um, yeah… about that… Recent injuries and surgeries put a serious dent in my exercise routine so I’m not by any means beach-body ready. Lack of regular sunny days and my birthright mean … Continue reading

FIGMENT NYC: Unearthing Adult Curiosity

Recently I went to FIGMENT NYC on Governor’s Island. I guess you’d call it an interactive art festival as there are installations to explore and to partake in. A favorite seemed to be Head in the Clouds which was built from empty water bottles and gallon jugs. There was a DJ playing inside and so … Continue reading

Clean up on the Q

On the subway the other morning I dropped my iced coffee. It did that flippity flip thing where for a brief second I thought it would land right side up. No dice. 16oz of coffee and iced spilled all over the place. Luckily no one was hit by the splatter but rivers of coffee formed … Continue reading

Still Pouring

It’s been raining non stop for well over 24 hours. Last night around 9PM it was just spitting. Overnight it transitioned into just plain old rain and it didn’t let up all day, it actually rained harder and harder. By the time I left work, around seven, it was in full-on downpour mode. Of course, … Continue reading

My First Surgery

My appendix decided to make its presence known on Cinco de Mayo. I had spent the day on my couch recovering from a weekend of drinking, dancing and making new friends. The pain came out of nowhere, it felt like someone was twisting my belly button. After ruling out hunger I decided to sleep on … Continue reading

Urban Math Skills

My friends live near me but we don’t all use the same subway stop. When we need to meet up to go somewhere together we’ll often agree to meet on a train. We agree on a time to meet at a specific stop, each person figuring out what that means for their departure from their … Continue reading

Overheard on the Run

As I’m recovering from an injury, doc’s orders are to avoid hills and speed work while building up my mileage. The thought of doing 1 mile repeats along the flattest stretch of Prospect Park drive was not appealing so instead I opted for a two-ish mile loop that combines the western side of the park … 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

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
