Cheap Joke

This is my grocery basket from a recent trip.  This is not the joke part. Easy Mac happened to be on sale, so I bought all I could find.  All that I could fit into my basket, while still leaving room for a tiny (just a tiny) bit of self-respect. […]

Surprise From Behind

Surprise! For ten years, I dyed my hair nearly every imaginable colour.  Starting when I was thirteen and yearned to be a feisty redhead, to my high school graduation whereupon I sported streaks of pink and purple, to the post-college long, blonde years. Then, when I was 23, I decided[…]

What A Difference Four Years Makes

It may have passed a bit unnoticed this year, but September 8th was the four-year anniversary of my move to New York City. Or, as I call it, my New Yorkiversary. I think New York and I deserve a formal anniversary.  I think my love affair with New York City[…]

Texts From the Hurricane

Somehow, in the course of the five hours I spent at work, nearly everyone sent me a text to warn me about the impending hurricane. Some people may have been overreacting: Some people were definitely overreacting: I’m looking at you, state of Connecticut. Still others may be underreacting: I’ll let[…]

ZzzQuil, A Review

Have you guys tried this ZzzQuil stuff yet? I’ve been so excited ever since I’ve heard of its existence.  Why, just 15mL of this stuff will knock you out, and for six hours, you’re Jessica Simpson, renting a bedroom with three walls and pink furniture that doesn’t match in style,[…]

…And All I Got Were These SICK Photos

So I went to Comic Con!  It was a total fluke – my roommate wasn’t feeling well, my date cancelled on me, and she insisted I take her 3-day pass for the day until she felt better.  I don’t know how I will ever repay her – it was a[…]

Little Letters

Dear Spanish Karaoke: I appreciate what you’re trying to do there.  But please, keep it between the hours of 10:00am and 11:00pm.  This 2:00am and 7:30am nonsense is really inconsiderate. Sincerely, Ay Dios Mio. Dear Weather: I was hoping for a little autumn before we jumped right to winter. Coldly,[…]

Past Life Regression: Musical Theatre Edition

Okay, I have to come clean.  Yes, there is a new man in my life.  Well, not so new.  But he touches me like nobody else can, and has since I was 13 years old. This guy: Source: via Rachael on Pinterest It’s Andrew Lloyd Webber, duh. Nothing like[…]

Always Do Your Own Laundry

Saturday morning laundry is a ritual:  roomie and I carry our own things around the block to the laundromat, hang out and talk and dish, and wash our clothes. It’s very fun, very Manhattan, and it’s nice to have clean clothes. This week, however, she’s out of town! Lonely laundry[…]

Take Back The Blog

Source: via Meghan-Sara on Pinterest A lot of people have observed that, in the blog world, when you talk candidly and frankly, it is a double-edged sword.  Some people (me!) love reading blogs where you get to know a person honestly, flaws and all, and share in their life[…]
