Champagne during a hurricane, or how to celebrate your birthday in style

This Sunday we celebrated my Wednesday Friend’s birthday. And you know I was determined to make it because I drove from Pennsylvania to Long Island to Brooklyn to New Jersey. And you might think this seems a bit excessive, but it was so worth it in the end. We were going on a boat ride with our favorite mad captain that I wrote about here and here. First of all, we came prepared. With balloons. Because boat trip or not, a birthday celebration is never complete without balloons. But then a disaster stroke! We lost them at the parking lot...

Some almost serious business talk

I am leaving for vacation today. And I’m super excited, also super exhausted, and sort of looking forward to that 6 hours of uninterrupted sitting. It’s been a month. I’ll be providing trip updates through Instagram, and Twitter. At least that’s the plan right now. Maybe I’ll be enjoying myself so much I won’t share shit, who knows.   But before I go, I wanted to tell you about this event I got to attend on Wednesday night. I got to listen to a lecture given by the entrepreneur Edward Shenderovich on his latest venture Knotel. And initially, I was...

@twisted_mind is surprisingly straight forward, or manual for an aspiring photographer

You know what I realized? I haven’t been introducing you to any cool people lately. And it’s time. I think you’re ready. I hope you’re ready for this one. For the coolest, awesomest, and most talentest (let’s keep grammatical errors homogeneous) person I’ve met thus far. His photography will make your skin crawl, and your eyes water from amazement, and let’s be honest, fairly often shock. He’s a Buddhist divided by 16, as he himself explains, everything is true with an exception, until it becomes a rule within that exception. He might have stolen this line from the Inception movie....

Read books and drink milk, unless you’re blind and lactose intolerant then probably don’t

First off, ever since I started blogging less my user registration went through the roof. And frankly I’m slightly offended by that. Also, should I take it as a hint? I’m not good with hints since I mostly ignore them, so I might as well ignore this one too. Secondly, it’s been real…messy I guess is the way to put it. I mean what’s with the news? People blowing up each other every single day, Trump getting crazier with every second, and SNL being the best it’s ever been. I’ve never been a fan of SNL, but material just keeps...

The Pirate Who Does Not Know the Value of Pi

Normal life doesn’t have my stamp of approval. So I’ve been back from Paris. And it’s like I’ve entered hell. Every aspect of my life has decided to blow up into a shit storm. Diarrhea style. And normally I just call everything a bunch of fucking bullshit, but I was too tired to do even that. Excuse the amount of curse words in this paragraph, you can tell I’m somewhat frustrated. Also, I’ve been sick on top of being exhausted these past couple of weeks, and I tell you that’s a potent cocktail. I haven’t been doing anything artsy, or hipster, or interesting...

Animal Friends are truly friendly

So I feel like I owe you a follow up post on my cat’s blood stool situation. Because you’re probably dying to know, and can’t get around to enjoying your weekend. Also, because this story has a good ending, and we don’t see those too much. Since I don’t have a regular doctor for my cat, because I just don’t, I googled info for some Animal Clinics in my neighborhood. And these guys came up Faithful Friends Animal Hospital so I called them. Because what can be better than Faithful Friends? Unfaithful but fun friends, but that’s another story. And...

All messed up, but still in order

Instead of me complaining about work stuff to you again, I’ll just tell you it’s still a lot. I’m overwhelmed and exhausted most days. And when I gain enough strength to not feel overwhelmed and exhausted, I usually just bitch and moan about how overwhelmed and exhausted I am, to whoever is around. My significant other if he’s not away on his business affairs. My Wednesday Friend who somehow still comes around to see me. Or my cat who simply has no other choice. You get the picture. So, this weekend I had three days off due to Marin Luther...

Happy Birthday, Alex. (you’re not getting a clever title for your birthday)

Ok, I have a very important post for you guys, but twitter is being very distracting and I’m suffocating from all the laughing I’m trying to suppress, while trying to work. We have a lot of fun on twitter, come find me there @thebooklynite.   Anyways, yesterday was an awesome night. And it was so  awesome, I’m going to use below picture to express my feelings.   My dear, and talented, and all-around great person Alex Fogo had a Birthday yesterday. And you know, as I was typing this I realized I don’t know how old he turned. I’m probably...

We’re watching good movies, reading good books, and saying good bye to Pokemons

So, I actually had a pleasantly descent weekend. But I also spent most of it trying not to think about work (see my previous post), thinking about work, getting mad about work, getting happy I’m not at work, and then getting mad again because Monday I’ll have to be back to work. Or that hell hole, as I refer to it now. I’m pretty sure this is a familiar feeling for most of the population, and I feel truly sorry for us. The only suggestion I have is let’s revolt and live in anarchy, or buy a farm and raise...

Chronicles of a Boob – because your life was missing this

The Booblet’s book is here, people! I mentioned a few posts back that a fellow blogger has done the ultimate challenge and dream of many bloggers, and has written enough cohesive words to be compiled into a book. And I was provided with Advanced Reader Copy, because I’m advanced like that. Which I am. I’m like really into social media, and can Google the answer to literally anything. This was also a great honor, or liability, or probably both because imagine if it turned to be pages and pages of eloquently assembled phrases about a girl, and meaning of life, and...
