At the mo'

Too many dystopian novels (see Oryx and Crake and The Children's Hospital) makes me peer cautiously out the window and expect to be surrounded by a never ending ocean.  And start hoarding canned goods.  And bug spray (so I may already hoard bug spray).

Hotel, don't even think I'm not judging you based on the state of your minibar.  Stale peanut M&Ms and pistachios?  For shame.  Where are the Dean & Deluca gummies and gourmet popcorn?

I may have bought Jim Gaffigan's Dad is Fat for my father on Dad's Day.  I love you dad!  I'm borrowing that book after you're done with it.

I've been told on two separate occasions this weekend that I need to find a man and get married ASAP.  The question at that moment became - who do I punch in the face first?

Considering that this past week, I've been bitten by mosquitoes everywhere including behind my ear, the chances of me contracting West Nile this summer are pretty high.  It's either that or widening the hole in the ozone from all the OFF! I've been spraying.

In searching for a Springpad replacement, I've stumbled upon Mammoth as a potential collaborative platform.  Any one have any other suggestions?

The city noises are keeping me up.  What is that dull roar and how many times do you think they have to collect garbage on this street?  I can tell you why this is the City that Never Sleeps in two words.  Cab drivers.


  1. You're going to meet a charming, handsome gentleman in NY. One who will appreciate the bug spray collection. :)

    Hope it's a good trip!

  2. Hahaha...punch them both at the same time.
    And I read Oryx and Crake awhile back and I remember liking it:) Can't go wrong with Margaret Atwood.

  3. Stale peanut M&Ms are such a disappointment. Sigh. As for getting married--you know I've been planning that retirement party. Now I'm getting emails from Pinterest on ideas for my upcoming wedding. So I can totally hook you up. :)

  4. I hope you can punch both at the same time. I hate it when people say things like that. I never even wanted to get married and now people ask me all the time when I will have a baby. :)

  5. i am ashamed to say that i have had both of those books probably since the day or week they came out in paperback. so for about 5 years or so. still haven't read them. i need to dig them out and put them on top of one of my piles. especially oryx and crank - i know i'll love that one.

  6. lol, brilliant post. you really do need to get married ASAP. and I'm saying this from a safe distance from across the pond :) xoxo

  7. I don't know you, but I love you so much for this statement: "I've been told on two separate occasions this weekend that I need to find a man and get married ASAP. The question at that moment became - who do I punch in the face first?"

  8. Do a punch, jab, hook & uppercut combo! :P Can you tell I used to turbo jam? Lol. Have a safe trip chica! Hoping you get some peace and quiet soon.

  9. Hmmm, you have two fists and are a top notch multi-tasker, I say take care of both of them at once. ;)

    Manhattan is a dirty city so they do have to collect a lot of trash. I wore open shoes there once and when I got home my feet looked like they belonged to another person. I still like visiting though.

  10. Hehe, "who do I want to punch first".
