Remembering

Ten years ago was my brother’s 30th birthday. I woke up at a friend’s house when she frantically yelled into the answering machine. I watched alone in horror when the second plane hit. Back at home in my apartment, my friends and I stared blankly at the TV screen all day and into night. My…

Stuff that works – Christmas edition

Ok. I’ll admit it. I’m a bit of a Scrooge about Christmas music.  I think it’s because people start playing it in November these days and I just get sick of it.  It’s probably more than that, because I don’t really remember ever liking any Christmas songs.  Dolly’s Hard Candy Christmas is good; I’ve always…

Someone somewhere is having the worst week of their life.

This week, it happened to a couple of really good people. I feel selfish even mentioning it because none of the struggles were actually mine but those of my friends. It’s never good when your friends make the local news. Our friend Jay Pfaffman’s house burned down this week. He, his dog Thor, and Thor’s…

I am an avid blog reader

I loved to read blogs. I love to write. I love to facebook and I love to tweet. Why, oh why can I not find 15 minutes a week to update my freaking blog?  I’m not THAT busy.  Although, I have been really busy.  (I just typed “busty”, heh. I guess I’m that too.) We…

Cozy crawlin’

I was out of town last weekend and didn’t get to join in the SnugPubCrawl festivities, but it sure sounds like they had fun.  I was following the hashtag (#snugpubcrawl) on twitter and vicariously enjoying myself.  This is why social media is fun. It’s SOCIAL!

When uncool is cool

My friend Maggie is the coolest person I know.  She’s in a band.  She’s a bartender.  She’s an artist.  She’s incredibly smart.  She dresses in a style that looks effortless, cute skirts, unassuming pigtails and a broken-in pair of chucks, but that also exudes attitude.  A tattoo referencing her band, represented in the form of…

It’s Friday! Now with PICTURES!

Ooof.  This has been ONE. TOUGH. WEEK.  And I am so incredibly glad it’s over.  My husband and I have no plans until Sunday when we are going to a nice brunch thrown by a very dear friend of ours.  I cannot explain how happy I am to have a relaxing weekend.  I’d guess that…

Finding old friends

Everyone know how handy Facebook is for finding old friends.  That’s one of the main reasons to use it for most people.   Today, while making an initial sales call (meaning I’ve never met anyone from the company and have no business relationship developed) I was transferred to the person that handles the marketing for a…
