Sharing really does mean caring

on
If you know me personally, you’ve been hearing me complain constantly, I mean constantly, about my noisy upstairs neighbors. They’re 20 years old. They’re 2 of them. That makes them annoying times two. Which means I’m complaining times two. My poor boyfriend. My poor mother. My poor landlords! (No, scratch that, they don’t get any sympathy.) It all […] [Read More]

Jumpy much? Why yes, yes I am

on
Have you ever tweaked out because you thought something was crawling on you, but there was nothing there? When I say “tweaked out,” I mean: jumped out of your seat or screamed a little. I just did. Well, I didn’t scream, but I did violently uncross my right leg, which was over my left leg (obviously) […] [Read More]

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

on
Hey y’all. ‘Tis the season. The season for the flat, open, face-up palm. The “please give me some money” palm. For those of you who don’t own teenagers or go grocery shopping in November/December, this is what I’m talking about: Now, I don’t usually assume this palm-position. It’s not really my style. But today, I’m […] [Read More]

Greenwich Loses Power (Again)

on
Oh my God… no power in Greenwich. The horror! How are we going to navigate these harrowing intersections? How are we going to have our double shot, clover brewed, low fat, fat free foam cappuccinos? HOW? Beware the blood shot eyes of your local hedge fund manager, or the panic stricken un-caffeinated, non blow-dried house wife. With no […] [Read More]

Good Carma

on
Y’all, I’ve been having great carma lately. Carma is when good things happen to you that are car related. Don’t you just love a good pun?  Anyway, I want to talk about this. It all started last week when I decided to register my poor old SUV that’s been sitting, lonely, in the garage, with […] [Read More]

Happy For Fall… or are you?

on
This is a little bit of a coming-back-crawling post. I’ve been MIA for at least a month, but with the new season comes new excuses topics. So, will you please forgive me? I’m a little bit in denial that summer is officially over. I had a really good run this season. I’ve been all over […] [Read More]

Another tragic loss on I-95

on
This is not a post I want to write. Thinking about this subject makes me feel ill. I feel compelled to write it anyway. It may seem scattered or disorganized. So are my feelings on this topic. Mike DeFruscio was driving his 2011 Infiniti G37x coupe yesterday morning around 4:00 on I-95 traveling south in […] [Read More]

I am not going away this weekend

on
As you may have gathered from the clever title to this post: I am not going away this weekend. Nope. I’m staying in Greenwich. Woo hoo. It’s too bad, because I’ve really been enjoying my weekends on the Cape. Last weekend, my mother and I went up to my grandmother’s cottage to see our two […] [Read More]

Off-Roading on the Water: Greenwich Harbor

on
I used to hate going to the beach. I know, I know. How can you hate going to be the beach? But I’d get bored and restless. And I have fair skin so as a kid, I was always paranoid of getting burned just because I was hot. I finally grew out of this affliction […] [Read More]

Driving with Dogs

on
Who’s going away for the Fourth? Me, me, me, me, me, me! I can’t get out of here soon enough. I just can’t wait. Even Mason Dixon is anxious to get a break from the hustle and bustle of apartment living. All the early mornings, lazy afternoons, boring dinners. He’s exhausted. Look at him. He […] [Read More]
