Should I Date This Ninja From OkCupid?

Should I Date This Ninja From OkCupid?

The best part of being part of the OkCupid community is that you get to meet potential serial killers before they murder their first victim. Not every woman gets to be swept off her feet by a man who will eventually be profiled on a very special episode of Dateline. (more…)

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...

Just Call Me Barefoot. Drop the Contessa.

Sometimes I get in the mood to prove to the world that I’m a capable and functioning adult and forget that that no one cares except for myself. Of course by the time I realize that, I’m usually halfway through my “look at my charming adult” act and in way too far to turn around. Take this Sunday for example. (more…)

I’m Not a Real New Yorker

The trick to being “so New York” and fooling people into believing you’ve always lived here is to act like everything you say and do is inconsequential and meaningless. Hail a cab the same way you tie your shoe. “Oh this little hand trick, it’s just something I picked up in kindergarten” is what your gesture should say as fifteen...

Should I Skip My Birthday This Year

Despite the fact that I have a blog that’s all about myself, I’m generally pretty modest. You won’t see me strutting around Central Park handing out “I’m a blogger” business cards or showing off my constantly updated Twitter followers tattoo.  And that’s why my yearly birthday (yeah I have one a year, you?) is a blessing disguised in a curse hidden...

Could I Be More Cultured?

I live in New York City which means I’m supposed to be one of the most cultured, savvy and chic human beings alive. On a good day, my shirt’s not wrinkled and my fingernails are filed. So I’m not exactly in the running yet to be New Yorker of the Year (although rumor has it the winner gets to run a hot dog stand in Central Park for an entire summer…talk...

My Very First Santacon

The entire idea of Santacon disgusts me. Grown people wearing costumes in the daylight. People yell-singing Christmas songs like they’re middle-aged people at a Bon Jovi concert. Having to remove a one piece Santa costume every time you have to pee. Nothing about it sounds appealing and that’s why I spent all last year huddled up in my apartment giving...

So I Oversnipped

Sometimes I pretend I’m starring in some b-grade direct-to-DVD Mandy Moore movie where I feel like I should make a drastic life change (set to a ’80s music montage) that leads me on a path to realizing the true meaning of life.. Then I make that change and it doesn’t quite work out the way I imagined it would. Unlike Mandy Moore, it does not...

Do We Talk About Camels Enough?

I hate superlatives. They’re a overdramatic and never true. I can’t tell you how many places in NYC claim to have the world’s BEST food. (Like really food truck that lingers on 50th? You have the world’s BEST mango smoothies. I would just love to see your global research studies to see how you reached your conclusion.) So I was a little...

Just Another Week in my Jetset Life

Even though you’re reading this on  a Monday night (Or Tuesday morning or next February when you need advice about moving to NYC and google “moving to NYC” and this blog comes up and you open it up and are like WTF, this is the least helpful moving to NYC blog ever.”), I wrote this on a Saturday night. Why would I spend my Saturday night...
