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[…]

I’m Alive Today Because Of Welch’s Fruit Snacks

I have a long, long history with Welch’s Fruit Snacks.   WELCH’S FRUIT SNACKS.   Let’s start with a little trip down memory lane, shall we? Back to the Early-Mid-90’s. Now, I’m A #90sKID, so obviously, I ate a lot of fruit snacks growing up. Who among us whomst was[…]

Currently… in February 2019

  FEELING:  Well, honestly, I’ve lost the last week and a half to being very, very sick. It started with that achy feeling in my bones, then turned into a fever that lasted for about a week, and now I have this lingering very wet deep chest cough. It really does feel like[…]

2019 Resolution: Get Out More!

I had a whim today. Well, really, it was because I saw this Time Out New York article on my Facebook timeline: talkin’ bout the 50 places you should visit in New York City. I’ll get the waiting out of the way: I’ve been to 33/50 of them. Not bad![…]

Three New Favorite Podcasts

    Broken Harts is a true crime podcast from Glamour magazine that follows one singular case: the case of the Hart family. In short, this was the case where two (white) women adopted two families of three (black) children and all (?) of them died when the head of the[…]

A Tale of Two Fyre Fest Docs

  Unless you’ve been living on a deserted island in the Bahamas, in a former FEMA tent, subsisting on cheese sandwiches, you’re aware — aware that there are TWO competing documentaries about Fyre Festival for you to enjoy.   Some news outlets will pit the two against each other. Some[…]

Did I Solve The EARONS / Golden State Killer Case? MAYBE!!!

First things first, let me introduce you to my absolute favorite true crime podcast: Casefile. I have listened to every. single. episode. I’m obsessed. I devoured the entire back catalog of episodes (around 70 at the time I started listening) at work, often when I was alone in the adjacent[…]

The Angriest L Train Interaction I Have Ever Seen

With the possibility that the L train WON’T be shutting down, it’s got me thinking. A lot of people are happy. A lot of people are angry. A lot of people are ambivalent. There’s a lot of people in New York City, and they all have feelings! Most of them —which is a lot of[…]

My Very First Visit To TIMES SQUARE

Ok so FIRST OF ALL, this story takes place a looooong time ago. Like, 2005, probably. 14 years ago. That’s one entire Tweenage Disney Channel Sitcom Star ago. My first boyfriend — in college — because Late Bloomers Gonna Bloom Late — grew up in New York City. My first[…]

* ~ * Adult Fantasies * ~ *

stomach growling, I slink my way to the kitchen and open the fridge. It’s full of food, and some of this food comes together to make a satisfying meal, which I sensuously eat. my phone chimes with a text — it’s my pharmacy. They inform me that my prescriptions are due for[…]

The L Train Is SAVED!! Maybe.

We’ve been dreading it. Planning around it. Making forced gallows-humor jokes about it. And now… Well, in a bizarrely unilateral move, Gov. (ptooey!) Cuomo announced that there would be no L train shutdown.  Couldn’t have said it any better myself, cryptically ominous subway tile graffiti. In a totally “everything means nothing” move, that bitter pill[…]

Currently… in January 2019

FEELING:  Ahem, WordPress. Annoyed at this weird change? I legiterally have no idea what I’m doing, I just pray to sweet Satan that this post makes it out of the gates in readable format. Um, I’m okay. Feeling my grip on sanity loosen ever-so-slightly now that I’m not working regularly, and[…]

I Need Your *Advice*

image source: Wikimedia Commons Dear Reader: I need your help. I’m addicted… TO ADVICE COLUMNS! Ever since I was old enough to reach for the coveted “Lifestyles” section of the local newspaper. That’d be the Press & Sun Bulletin, FYI. The “Lifestyles” section back then had everything I needed to know: the funnies the[…]

Stop Making Me Cry!

  ‘Tis the season for RAMPANT HIGH EMOTIONS!   Sure, you can *try* to avoid the Christmas Cry-ies by not tuning into those schlocky Hallmark movies where Flannel Clad Single Dad teaches High-Powered High-Maintenance City Woman the *True*Meaning*Of*Christmas. You can avoid listening to “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” or any[…]

Bye Bye “BDE,” 2018 was *REALLY the year of…

  Do You Remember back in early 2018? When we all thought that Big Dick Energy — or BDE — was the “Big Mood” of the year?   BDE symbolized everything that we wanted to project into the world … or so we thought!  Early 2018, we were all younger than[…]
