I Just Wanna Know

  It hit me the other day when I was at work, on a Saturday. I had the studio space to myself and was working on a large-scale (messy) task, playing a podcast for my enjoyment (The Bowery Boys Epsiode #169 The Tallest Building In New York: A Short History[…]

Touched By… 👻 A GHOST?!?!? 👻

  I’ve often confirmed on this blog that I believe in ghosts, but I don’t think I’ve ever told you why. It’s because I’ve been touched by a ghost. TWICE.    Let’s go back to 2003, 2004. The College Years! I was at Broome Community College working towards my Associate’s Degree in[…]

Everything I Know About Sex I Learned From *Musical Theatre*

I have been a theatre nerd ALL. MY. LIFE. True story: my parents remember me dancing around to “One” from A Chorus Line when I was a toddler, so baby, as long as I could talk, I’ve been a Broadway Baby! So of course, the first person to really sit me down and teach[…]

Recipes That Prove That Humans Are Monsters

  I feel pretty gross and guilty for my mayo-cheese-and-sriracha sandwiches. That’s what they are. Gluten free bread, a thick layer of Kewpie mayo on both slices, a hearty drizzle of Sriracha hot sauce, and two slices of Provolone cheese. I’m a bad person. I’m disgusting. This is my favorite[…]

🎶 Where Have All The Napkins Gone? 🎶

  I’ve always looked up to Amy Sedaris. You know, she was born across the river from my hometown? And ever since her Comedy Central TV show Strangers With Candy filled my adolescent eyeballs with its raunchy, subversive humor, I’ve definitely known who she is. You can’t miss her. Beyond her iconic[…]

Doggy Daycare Drama Coach

  Some people are sports people, some people are theatre people.   Hear me out.   Some people are sports people, some people are theatre people. This is a fact. And you can’t really be a “sports person” AND a “theatre person” and this conflict is borne out in High School[…]

FUSHTRATED

  I loooove reality TV. Like, I’m PASSIONATE about it. I’ve watched COUNTLESS shows of ALL DIFFERENT kinds: Dating shows. Celebreality shows. Cooking competitions, dancing competitions, modeling competitions, wedding dress purchasing competitions …   Now usually, when you’re super passionate about something, NATURALLY, you might consider participating in it yourself![…]

Grilled Cheese and Tomato

  Let’s get first things first: I am a diner gal. I loooove a good diner. I feel reeeeal comfortable in a vinyl booth, with a laminated menu in my hands, stacking up little jelly pots and creamer pods.   I came of age in diners. I think many of you did,[…]

March Through The Snow???

  Ok so let’s look at the facts:   It’s March 4th and it’s been declared a SNOW DAY in New York City. It’s already snowed more in MARCH than it has the ENTIRE WINTER BEFORE THIS.   I CALL SHENANIGANS!   You will recall, our first major snowfall of[…]

Currently… in March 2019

  FEELING:  Stressed and so #Blessed! I’ve been very busy at the studio this past month, and I *love* being busy! I’ve been having a lot of pain in my back and shoulders, but I made it a point to spend a day with my boyfriend at The Met and we ended[…]

Blankets

  Hello, My name is Meghan, and I have a blanket problem.   For about a week, I seriously considered dropping two hundo dollars on one of those fancy “weighted blankets” on Amazon. I think that week was the pinnacle of the “weighted blanket” craze, around late 2017, when the[…]

Sometimes, Living With Roommates Can Be… Shitty

  I would like to tell you that this is the story of the time I almost pooped in a shoebox, but that wouldn’t be the whole truth. Because the truth is that I almost pooped in a shoebox on multiple occassions.    So I live in a 4br/1ba loft in Brooklyn with 3 other[…]

I’ve Got A THING For Pink Sweaters!!!

    The other day, when I was in one of my favorite thrift stores (Buffalo Exchange on 26th street FYI), buying not one but two pink sweaters, it occurred to me.   I have a thing for Pink Sweaters.   And actually, Pink Sweaters comprise the majority of All of My Sweaters.[…]

5 Parts of The Met that You Can’t Miss!

  If you’re a New Yorker, you go to The Met. It’s what you do.  I’ve been thinking about The Met and I’ve decided that The Met is like, Church for New Yorkers. If you live in New York, you should go to The Met if not every week, then[…]

Who’s “Ready” for The Bachelor??

  Bachelor spoilers ahead!   It happens every season: after a certain point, the “fun” contestants have all departed, yet we still keep watching for some reason cuz we wanna see which Lauren B the Bachelor will stand on a beach and bequeath the Neil Lane diamond to. And I’m pretty sure,[…]

Things You Might Not Know About Me

  I feel like my blog is a pretty good representation of who I am. Like, if you read my blog, you for sure know about my obsession with true crime podcasts, and that I put Kewpie mayo on pretty much everything I eat, I love thrift shopping, and I[…]

I Don’t Believe In “Ghosting”

  I’ve started and re-started this post so many times and every time, I work myself into a frothy rage so I’m gonna keep this short and sweet (that’s right, UNDER 700 WORDS) and just say this: I don’t believe in “ghosting.”   Why not?   1. Ghosting is a “new[…]

Living In The Moment

  I’m partly convinced that “living in the moment” is a pretty string of words that has almost no meaning.   I was thinking about it the other day — as I think about a lot of things. I mean, there’s always the thinking of thoughts. That’s what my “moments” are like.[…]

Cultural Appropriation in the Curriculum?

  So the hottest of hot topics this week is VIRGINIA, and how apparently, a rite of passage for college students in Virginia is… blackface??? Both the Governor and the AG of the great state of Virginia have been caught/admitted to it. This story’s been around a while, Twitter has already made[…]

Maybe Charlotte Was The Real Miranda All Along

  I’ve recently been re-re-re-rewatching Sex and the City with my reluctant but resigned boyfriend. Yeah, we’ve been using his HBO GO subscription to switch between that, and Entourage. Early-00’s nostalgia is at its absolute PEAK around here, as is our NY-vs-LA struggle for supremacy. And maybe it’s the wisdom of my[…]
