Words for Thought

Since I am not in NYC currently, riding the crazy subway, I figured I would give you a quote that has made me think: “What if for each of us the only wise man, the only wizard, the only good parent we will ever have is our own helpless, vulnerable self.” – pg 63, If You…

Adventure Time NYC: Escape the Room

So, things slow down at work during the summer and you get the chance to do fun things during lunch without the bloodhounds being turned on you if you are five minutes late getting back to your desk. This past Friday was one of those days, where I joined four other co-workers as we decided…

To Those Who Won the Genetic Lottery

To Those Who Won the Genetic Lottery: Not all of us can tan. WE JUST CAN’T. Please stop trying to explain to me the best way to get a tan, what methods of sunscreen application alternated with what-the-fuck-ever, and how long on each side for optimal crispiness without burn.

Dear Upstairs Neighbor

Dear Upstairs Neighbor, I never thought I would live below someone who put an Above Average video to shame. The people before you would stomp on the floor in time to me pounding chicken breasts flat for recipes. So when they left, I was actually kind of happy. Then you moved in and every fucking…

Exhibit A

He was a typical example of this generation’s male species. He wore brown leather moccasin-esque loafers, knees splayed out wider than his hips to claim his space and air out his balls properly.
