Staten Island Is Pretty…For Real.

When I say I’m from Staten Island people usually laugh or say “hah” with emphasis, as if this borough of New York City does not have a reputable reputation. [I realize it is not proper phrasing to say “reputable reputation”, but it makes the sentence seem stronger] There are beautiful parts of Staten Island. I […]

SNOWWWWWWWW.

I like to have my dog lay with my jeans so if I get kidnapped she can track my scent. She is very protective of me. My sister and I went to my grandma’s house for Boxing Day Breakfast and returned home today, 48 hours later due to the snow storm. I concluded we would […]

Mumford & Sons LAST USA Concert

**I just looked it up and Marcus Mumford, the main guy, was born on January 31, 1987. He is only my age!!! He is only 23!!! I thought he was older. Crazy. Last night I saw Mumford and Sons perform their last show on their USA tour at Terminal 5 in NYC. It was AWESOME. The […]

Locked in the Stairwell Again.

I got to work early this morning and needed to go upstairs pick up a packet of papers. I took the stairs one floor up. The only way to get out of the stairwell is by using your ID card to swipe in. I entered the echoey vestibule and the heavy door slammed behind me. […]

Mundane Monday’s

This morning I felt like a newborn baby–I was asleep, cuddling my pillow that was warmed from my body’s sleepy heat, dreaming. Twenty minutes later, I was shivering on the Express bus from the icy air conditioned air on a rainy monday morning. Even though I held an umbrella, the sideways rain dampened the back […]

A Cupcake the Size of my Head

Here is me from the past 20 days. It’s weird how life just passes by and every day I come to work.  I have officially stopped drinking iced chai tea from Starbucks and started drinking orange juice [without pulp] Even saying the word pulp grosses me out and frankly, makes me feel embarrassed. The smallest […]

Life is OK Without Coffee.

There was a woman and a 2 year old baby on the subway this morning [I’m an expert at child age estimation]. His mother told him it was the last day he would get to drink from a bottle. When she took it away, he would cry and ask for it. She bribed him with […]

I Love Dolls!!!

This is the lower half of my body on this morning’s commute to work holding the book I purchased yesterday from Barnes and Noble. Ca-CHINGGG. I  bet everyone reading this blog realizes I am wearing new shorts in the picture, that I brought this weekend from dELIA*s. [original 34.99 on sale for 16.50] Those may […]

Choice to Travel: Toy Story 3

Katt [my good friend from high school] visited me at work last night around 7pm. I gave her a tour of the floor, she met my boss, and someone thought she was an employee. I looked up movie times for Toy Story 3 and found it played at 6:40pm in Times Square. Little did I […]
