Keeping the blog alive

It's been a while. One of the pros of this whole Covid19 quarantine at home, is that I am finally sorting through all the pictures, started blog posts, and scribbled notes from the past 3 years, that I totally meant to post. The downside is, you know, being stuck at home. Some fun facts about... Continue Reading →

In the land of palm trees

Confession: I had only seen palm trees once before my March Break on the west coast. In 1998, my father and my friend's parents yanked us out of school for a few weeks to drive down to Florida. I was captivated by the weird looking trees. And recently it hit me: I want to go... Continue Reading →

I have been in one of those ruts... Continue Reading →

We found ourselves asking the question... Continue Reading →

This morning Facebook decided to remind me that two years ago today, I was in Times Square.... getting scammed by a psychic named Gina. I had gone to NYC with a friend to watch Wicked, eat cupcakes out of a vending machine, tour an abandoned morgue*, and see what other insanity would ensue.  We managed... Continue Reading →
