Last night I met up with a couple of my lovely friends as part of a Gadling feature on staycations. Because it’s time. For vacations. And staycations. And all kinds of cations in between. Just yesterday morning I was talking with someone who was leaving for an extended vacation in San Francisco, and I mentioned [...]
This weekend was so busy. So busy, in fact, I’m still reeling from the reels. But I’ll stop long enough to share one thing that happened. The best sandwich in the land was created in my kitchen. True story. I was craving strawberries and serendipidously ran across the above photo and accompanying Southern Living recipe. [...]
I’ve had a hard time writing lately. This is extremely unusual for me, and I’m primarily blaming the ubiquitous block on a busy mind and low carb intake. Or possibly it’s the economy. Or Carrot Top. Freak. In any event, my mind is disseminated. Also unusual. And frankly, I’m a bit out of my element [...]
I asked, you answered. And the winner is, #4, or Benjamin Moore Lavender Blue #1438. Good choice, people. I’ll keep you posted on the progress. And thanks for your brilliance. It will most likely be beyond beautiful. If not, we’re totally in a fight.

I’m going to visit my favorite city today. On a bit of a whim. Unexpected adventures really are the ultimate treat. I’ll let you know how it goes.
This last three weeks scores third in the race to weird-go0d transition in my life (so far that I can tell). I’m working on a post about that. But in the meantime, I’m spending a lot of sensory free-time on Blip.fm. It’s like Twitter. With music. Which is like adding ice cream to the cocaine. [...]
Since I’m not drinking margaritas this May 5th (for no good reason), I’m enjoying my Cinco de Mayo with Etsy, Sliding Doors, Bridget Jones & Sense and Sensibility. This is ridiculous and obviously absent of celebratory theme except that all the movies happen to be set in London. Which is clearly not very Cinco de [...]
7:42 p.m. I have this thing I need to write. It’s been hanging over my head for 18 days now. 18 days! I know. Bad. And I’ve put it off as long as I possibly can. But first I’ll get Harry to bed. 8:02 p.m.- Harry’s in bed. 8:03 p.m. – I think I’ll watch [...]
