How to go to the Bathroom in the Middle of the Night

  Wake up at 3 A.M in your apartment and realize you have to pee. Think about how much effort it will take to walk to the bathroom. Decide you actually don’t have to pee. You just think you have to pee. (more…)

SometimesITalkReallyFast

So it’s confession time. And luckily for you it’s not about a murder. Sigh of relief. Can you imagine how awkward it would be for you if you read a murder confession on a small personal blog? You’d be all like, “ummm, do I go to the police? Do I tweet about this? Do I pin it to my ‘my favorite blogging criminals’ Pinterest...

Yeah, I’d Go Back To College

I miss college. Like really miss it. And I didn’t realize how much until I attended my little sister’s college graduation this weekend. While I anticipated heated fights with my family over the dinner seating arrangements and intense boredom from the actual commencement ceremonies,  I didn’t anticipate the intense wave of nostalgia I felt...

I Think A Nurse Hit On Me

Last week I went to the doctor to get my yearly physical. Considering that I have access to the Internet, this yearly check-up usually proves pointless. What can a doctor possibly tell me that Yahoo Answers cannot? But because I’m addicted to diagnosing myself with rare illnesses, I head to the doctor each year in hopes he’ll tell me something exciting....

When God Closes A Door, PC Richards Opens Up A 9-5 Window

I love schedules, spreadsheets, punctuality, reservations, watches, alarms and predictability. I like knowing when I’m going to be doing what I’m going to be doing it. If I was a smidge more anal retentive I could read train time tables for fun. That’s how much I love being on time. My good friends over at PC Richards live a little more spontaneously....

I Have Too Many Frenemies

As big as New York City is, it’s impossible to avoid the people you hate. While you might think that that the odds are very low of running into one frenemy out of 10 million strangers, it’s happens surprisingly often. One second you’re picking up new shampoo at CVS and the next second you’re kissing someone on the cheek that you went to...

An Open Letter To My Neighbors

Dear Neighbors, I need you to stop and I need you to stop right now. I’m sick and tired of coming home from a long day of work and having to smell your dinner. It smells fucking delicious and it’s getting harder and harder for me to walk by your door every day like nothing’s happening. Like you’re not in there with a chef’s hat...

In New York We Don’t Count Sheep, We Count Doormen

While everyone else could put on their satin pajamas and watch the Oscars half-heartedly last night, I had to work. As an entertainment blogger I not only had to watch the show intently, but I also had to take what I was watching and turn it into a readable blog and/or tweet. If the Oscars took place between 1:00 to 4:00 on a Sunday afternoon, this would be totally...

On Second Thought, I’d Prefer A Town Car

I love making travel plans in email chains and in brunch conversations, but I hate actually following through. For as much as I talk about getting away and going somewhere, I hate going through the process of taking time off work, booking tickets and finding ways to entertain myself that won’t interfere with my most lovable quirk, motion sickness.
