Birthday Planz

Last weekend was spent celebrating my honorary "niece", Emma's, fourth birthday! It was gorgeous weather in the suburbs; sunny, blue skies with a nice breeze. It was a fun mixture of family, friends, adults, and kids, as well as numerous unicorn related paraphernalia, including a cake, stuffed animals, various gifts, and balloons. From my estimation,… Continue reading Birthday Planz

The Tale

On Saturday night, I went to visit and sleepover at my dear friend Arie's newer home in Evanston. We had a girl's night, which included face masks by Tony Moly, delicious and very healthy snacks prepared by Arie, and a couple of movies interrupted frequently by our typical disjointed chats, talking about everything in our… Continue reading The Tale

This Week in Shenanigans

This was a rather front-loaded fun week. On Thursday, I enjoyed happy hour with my colleague/friend Abbey, who is delightful, smart, mature beyond her years, and very fun to hang out with. That happy "hour" turned into a romp through Boystown, as her dad had a work event at Sidetrack, which is always a treat.… Continue reading This Week in Shenanigans

My 3 New Obsessions

What obsessions are reigning queen in my world right now? Let's break it down! Jonathan Van Ness! The "Groomer" on Queer Eye. Also, the genius behind Gay of Thrones. Also just the light of social media, topping my "most searched list" these days. He's by far the most flamboyant of the Fab 5 and there… Continue reading My 3 New Obsessions

Mid-Year “Resolutions”

Truth be told, I'm not one for resolutions or steep goal setting. I don't like to set myself up for feeling like a POS if I deviate from a plan. So the less rigid the plan or intention, the better! Still, I think now that half of 2018 has passed, it's a good time to… Continue reading Mid-Year “Resolutions”

Dream Interpretation

The meaning behind our dreams is still a concept that evades us to this day. That being said, I find that most of my recurring dreams tend to be inherently anxiety or stress laden, though now and then I do have more neutral themes appear. What I thought I would do is conjecture on what… Continue reading Dream Interpretation

Smörgåsbord II

Here are your buffet styled topics for today! Film I recently saw Amy Schumer's new movie, I Feel Pretty. I'd seen a trailer and thought it looked kind of fun, but frankly after her last standup special, The Leather Special, I was very turned off by her. I'm all for a bawdy sense of humor à… Continue reading Smörgåsbord II

Sometimes I Do Charity

Good morning friends! Today I'm stepping out of my narcissistic bubble and am giving back. Must be a full moon! I had recently done a closet overhaul, picking off a large variety of items to try to sell, admittedly. Most of them were a big fat no from Crossroads Trading Co., but I did walk… Continue reading Sometimes I Do Charity

Orcas

Did you like Free Willy? Neither did I. In retrospect, the concept I agree with, but Orcinus orca, also known as the killer whale, is truly the stuff of nightmares. It's the stuff of my regular nightmares. It all started with watching the award-winning documentary Blackfish, on Netflix a few years ago. I've always enjoyed nature related documentaries,… Continue reading Orcas
