My first, and last Burlesque show

You guys, this Wednesday was Valentines day, and it’s probably the most bipolar holiday ever. Depending on your single, or in-relationship status, you were either super bitter, or horribly ecstatic. I was neither because I had to work on a fairly complex excel spreadsheet that literally took me all day. Granted I do like working on those, so I guess that would lean me into a relationship-ecstatic status. My fingers gently typed away those weekly summary numbers, while excel took them in and grew larger and larger, until we both lost track of time, and span off into an eternal...

On Broadway, Booze, and T-shirts that talk, kind of

A bunch of exciting things have been happening lately, regardless of this shitty weather. I hate February with a vengeance. And supposedly this winter weather is sticking around for another 5 weeks because  Groundhog saw his shadow. And nobody can argue against that logic. In fact, I think I might get a hamster and let it’s shadow make decisions for me. You’ve got nothing on me, IRS. I made another drawing. And it came out pretty bad ass. It took me a good 6 to 7 hours, but I’m a proud mama. It’s based on a photo taken by @twisted_mind...

I’m inspired, and ready to stab someone in the eye

It’s been a super bi-polar week. Do you ever have one of those? One minute you’re so excited, and inspired, and full of life. Another, just about ready to stab someone in the eye with, a fork. Just me then? First of all, let me finally tell you about the Christmas gift I got for myself. Because this year I decided against gifts for everyone else, but myself. If you ever get the chance definitely go for it. Just apologize in advance to your friends, and loved ones. After all, they’re supposed to accept, and support you no matter what....

On art shows, doodles, and how to make a fortune

Yesterday I got to attend Outsider Art Fair, and it was great. Today is the last day, so maybe like bookmark it for the next year or something. I found out about it through the Facebook events feature, which I like immensely. It gives you suggestions based on your interests and about 90% of the time they’re spot on. Which is also really disturbing, but mostly very convenient. It was located in the Lower West side of Manhattan, but I’m not sure if they keep the same location every year. What I am sure about is we were too damn...

Hong Kong – that really happened.

OK, so I have lots to tell you, and hopefully I’ll get to it in due time, but first I would like to finish my series on Hong Kong. Finally. Let’s make it nice, and concise (I’m talking to myself here). Continued from here. [Fair Warning: this post turned out to be super long. So if you get tired, just scroll through pictures, there’s plenty of those] Day 2 Second day felt considerably better. The trick to getting over jetlag somewhat easier is going to bed by the local time. Do whatever you can to last until that sleepy time,...

Whatever you do, do not fan approach me

Ok so before I finish up my Hong Kong story, I would like to do a post on the current state of events. Because there has been a lot going on, and I now realized I mostly keep this blog as an events tracker for myself. And the rest of the world to read. It’s like a really fucked up secret journal. A really close friend of mine is moving to Oregon today. And that’s such a hipster thing to do, I’m not sure whether to feel sad or jealous. I’m happy for her because I’m sure whatever her plans,...

On going to Hong Kong, Tibetan pants, and cellulite

Umm, so this weekend my significant other and I sort of purchased tickets to Hong Kong. We were planning on getting away somewhere for a few days before the holidays, but I was thinking something along the lines of California. And technically we will be flying through Los Angeles, so that’s like a spot on guess. Plus an additional half of the globe. Now what had happened was, we received a fairly good deal on tickets that cost a little over $600 each. For a round trip. To Hong Kong. I mean wouldn’t you abandon your children and/or pets and...

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...

We need more giant gummy bears

So I haven’t blogged in a while and here’s why. Last weekend we went to visit Brooklyn on a nice and scorching Sunday. And I have to say it was bittersweet because how can you not miss this? Real easy is how Bushwick Collective welcomed us with some freshly painted graffiti, cracked payments, and some old familiars. And this one giant gummy bear. And that just gave me a glimpse of hope for humanity. Because if we shove enough gummy bears into people’s mouths that might be just enough to stop them from arguing. What can I say, I guess...
