On going to Barcelona, creepy antique photos, and some good rap

OK, so a lot has been going on and most of it was actually positive. I KNOW. When does that ever happen. So that’s my excuse for not being here because I was literally pulled out of my head, where I like to spend most of my time, and into real life. And it’s nice, I’ve been busy with work stuffs, meeting other people stuffs, doing fun things stuffs, doing not so much fun things stuffs, you get the idea. But tomorrow I’m flying to Barcelona. And we had another ‘massive winter storm’ hit New York today, so instead of...

New York – it’s a state of mind

So we had ourselves a three-day weekend, and it was nice. And you just have to appreciate your day job, what else would fulfill that satisfaction of getting away from it. Lots of free time, kittens, and fatty food that doesn’t make you fat – that would probably do the job, but hey. Saturday was somewhat of a cold day, so I got to stay home, sleep in late, and just kind of be lazy. See winter is tricky like that, you hate it with a vengeance, but it’s a super convenient excuse to just chill out for a sec....

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...
