Lunacy in Iced Coffee

The picture I had of my afternoon entailed me sitting by the river outside my apartment with an iced coffee and writing in the sunlight. Yet, as is the case with many things in life, things did not turn out the way I had imagined. The detail of the delicious iced coffee was key to… Continue reading Lunacy in Iced Coffee

Everyone Else Is Doing It, Why Can’t I?

I'm so jealous of the people I see out running at all times of the day. Many of the runners I talk to speak of how much they love it and how cathartic it is for them. I very recently decided I really wanted to be one of these people so I took up the… Continue reading Everyone Else Is Doing It, Why Can’t I?

A Journey Through Irresponsibility

Oh Target... I try to avoid you. I try to buy just one thing. You seduce me with your big red logo and wide, brightly lit aisles and I don't know how to resist your reasonably low prices. On the average trip to Target I go to buy one key item, we will call this… Continue reading A Journey Through Irresponsibility

Things Found In My Backseat

This evening I was going to see Avenue Q with some friends and we decided to carpool as the theatre was about 45 minutes away. When I reached the pickup point I realized to my dismay that my backseat was a mess so I jumped out of my car and started frantically shoving everything into… Continue reading Things Found In My Backseat


What is it about being in the car that makes us feel at ease about what should be private behaviors? I've already discussed the shocking number of people who I have witnessed picking their nose behind the wheel (although they would all deny it), but even I am guilty of far more than the occasional… Continue reading Busted

More on Burritos

I can always talk more about burritos because I love them and I think at this point I'm eating them 3-5 times a week, which for any one type of food is excessive. In my previous post about the art burrito crafting I left one one type of worker who I encountered the other day.… Continue reading More on Burritos

The Dreaded SSS: Part II

So can you believe that this morning while enjoying my breakfast at my favorite diner a couple came in and sat beside each other in their booth? Did they not read my previous rant? If they are still choosing to display SSS behavior because they hadn't read my post about it yet, that is just… Continue reading The Dreaded SSS: Part II

The Dreaded SSS

I consider myself a very affectionate person and I have always participated in public displays of affection that I'm sure made the cynics of the world squirm. Yet, even though I crave romance and I'm always rooting for love there is one thing I can just never get on board with— couples who sit on… Continue reading The Dreaded SSS

Things I Don’t Need In Bulk

I should say upfront that I adore BJ's Wholesale Club, I love a bargain and I love being able to get the foods that I want in large quantities so I never run out. Yet, while browsing the aisles recently I was struck by certain items that I felt were a little insane to buy… Continue reading Things I Don’t Need In Bulk

The Perils of Public Restrooms

Whenever I use public restrooms I notice my anxiety is heightened and not for the reasons you might think. I'm not a germaphobe and I don't care how many tushies have touched the seat, rather my issue is with other people hearing me while I go. I think we all feel this way to some degree… Continue reading The Perils of Public Restrooms
