Home, Home On The Grange

  Now, I have been to the Grange, before, technically. A few months ago, I took a trip up to the house but, having missed the guided tour and nearing closing time, I didn’t go in. I did take this super-sick Instagram of me & the Hamilton homestead, though!:   View this post on[…]

Return to the Little Red Lighthouse

  I’ve loved the Little Red Lighthouse for a long time. And I can PROVE it! HERE! With this blog post from 2012! Now, don’t be confused about the purple Chuck Taylors — it’s a pure coincidence that I was rocking these Chucks in May ’12 and happen to have[…]

Target Sells Sex Toys Now, Because, Of Course They Do (And I Love It!)

  It started so small, as it always does, and just got out of hand from there — yeah we’re talking about Target.   Target Sells Vibrators in Stores Now so, Hi, I Basically Live There https://t.co/LpyNjPeNBv pic.twitter.com/57EBBx08EB — Cosmopolitan (@Cosmopolitan) April 11, 2019   Which led me to the[…]

The Beauty of Bushwick

  My Instagram account is now a street art appreciation account. This blog is now a street art appreciation blog.   With spring sloooowly inching the mercury higher, I’ve been making little efforts to get out of bed and get out more. The smallest of these efforts being strolling trips[…]

Why

  This blog is pretty weird.   Let’s face it, dear reader: we have latched onto a fleeting trend. Blogging was hot hot hot for a little while there! I wanna say 2009, everybody had a blog. We blogged our outfits. We blogged hairstyle tutorials. We blogged our LIVES! … for like, three years. By 2014, it seems, everyone[…]

So This Is A Brooklyn Spring

  In the countryside, Springtime is evidenced through gradually warming temperatures. The daylight lasts longer. And the trees start to bloom.   In Brooklyn, the telltale sign of spring’s arrival is not the chirps of the returning birds, but rather, the throbbing rumble of a subwoofer being blasted from somewhere[…]

When I See A Cupcake…

  My favorite food is cake. Period. End of the most Leo sentence ever.   Why wouldn’t your favorite food be cake??? Cake is obviously the best food. Here are the reasons: you’re supposed to eat cake at the END of the meal because it’s so special, you have to save the best[…]

When I’m Stressed Out, I Wet My Plants

  I’m not amazing at self-care. Honestly. I’m not really good at nurturing my own growth, taking the time to be deliberate and caring, and being aware of the ways I take care of my physical being.   But I’m great with plants.   My plants are bountiful, green, tall, and[…]

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[…]

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[…]

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[…]

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[…]

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![…]

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[…]

Dance As If Nobody’s Watching — Oh God, Are They Watching?

  You know how some people are afraid to dance because they claim that they “can’t dance”?   Hmm…. can’t relate.   Not that I’m bragging about my skills on the dance floor! Au contraire — I am openly and unapologetically an awful dancer. But I’ve always taken a special joy in dancing.   I vividly[…]

Reaching For The Light

As you know, it was recently MY BIRTHDAY* *yes, it was like, a week and a half ago, but to me, a birthday is more like a state of mind! And when I decide I want special treatment, it’s My Birthday.   So, I was still in a Birthday State[…]

Highlights From My 33rd Twirl Around The Sun

July 31st is my birthday! I have been a bit quiet about it on here… frankly, I’ve been quiet about a lot on here, this past year. This year was intense — by which I mean, it had some of the highest highs and the lowest lows — but overall, I’m surprised[…]

I Love Hate Clicks (And You Can’t Stop Me)

  Yes, I read the blog post. The one everyone was talking about: Men Prefer Debt-Free Virgins Who’ve Never Spoken To Anyone Outside Their Immediate Family, by The Brainwashed Wife. I kid, I kid! But you know the one. Look, far be it from me to criticize someone for blogging their unpopular[…]
