#FlashbackFriday: Cocktails and Cheez-Its

Cheez-Its, am I right? Looking back to a time when I was in one those, “just because I can” moods. Honestly, what else was I supposed to do with Scrabble Cheez-Its aside from eat them? And can we talk about...

42: Sacré Fromage!

Even though I’ve heard it’s impossible to get a table there and you’ll have to make a reservation weeks in advance, I decided to test my luck (with backup plans, just in case) at Le Diplomate for an early dinner....

42: immortalized in pixels

Well, this was certainly a nice surprise to wake up to. I’ve been immortalized in webcomic form! As a result of donating to his Kickstarter, Tony Breed–who is already a pretty awesome fellow all-round and possessed of amazing facial hair—drew...

42: ***Spotless

After almost–but not quite–20 years in DC, I sometimes think it would be nice if I could opt for a form of selective amnesia. I never watched “Eternal Sunshine” but I more or less guessed the plot and I was...

42: birthday anxiety

It was at brunch this past Sunday that I really started to think about it, even though I’ve already been asked by the boy about our upcoming plans for my birthday. Just one month away, it’s not even a milestone,...

40: the big (?) four-oh…

As I just received what is likely my last birthday gift this past weekend, I suppose I can safely say that birthday time has now ended. Especially as all of my grandparents have passed, so there won’t be any strangely...

metro: platform or runway?

*taps mic* Is this thing on? Anyone still out there? Yeah, it’s been a while, but between indulging in birthday shenanigans, and sorta realizing that I’m not as able to recover from birthday shenanigans as I once was, I needed...

me: I’m not sick, but I’m not well

The year was 1997, a bootleg copy of Where Have All the Merrymakers Gone? was in my CD player and I was a little too into this track… “I’m not sick but I’m not well, and it’s a sin to live so well.”

music monday: Lisa Stansfield

Happy birthday Lisa Stansfield! My introduction to British Blue-Eyed Soul with her well-known single All Around The World. There are few artists like her that, no matter what they put out, I’ll buy it.

cancer: tired of talking about it?

I was recently asked a question that no one’s asked me before about my cancer & treatment: Are you tired of talking about it yet? Short answer: no. Long answer: nooooooo. 🙂

books: a modest bestiary

My alarms go off at 5:15a and 6:05a in the morning and I’m usually woken up by the middle of an international story on NPR or if I hit the snooze button, The Writer’s Almanac.

birthday: gauntlet? thrown!

I suppose this is a technical win, since it’s wishing me a happy birthday and not an early happy birthday, but it’s still a win. Thanks karona! Are the rest of you going to let her get away with that?...

time: like a clock of the heart

Actually, it’s nowhere near that poetic or new romantic. To be honest, I’m ready to see the past year put in the ground. I’m just shy of a week away from my birthday and one gets into a state of reflection…

time: birthday week, birthday week…

I am still deriving far too much pleasure from adding whatever word I like after “birthday” and singing it to the tune of Birthday Sex by Jeremih.* I was lucky (?) enough to hear this song during brunch at Tonic...

sushi: would you like a Happy Santa?

Michael’s birthday was this past week so he, James and I headed to Momiji in Chinatown for dinner. They’ve just recently opened and while I can’t recall what was there before, this place seems to be a vast improvement. The...
