Tag Archive 'Favorite Things Friday'

Let me start by saying this week has largely sucked. I have been so busy that I have that deer in the headlights feeling from the moment I wake up until the moment I go to sleep. My mom is mad at me for something that happened last weekend. Not ready to write about that [...]

Today did not start well. Last night we had lots of wind in New York. Something about it set me off. I had nightmares literally all night. One after the other. I can’t remember what they were about aside from one where I was being electrocuted. (Nice, right?) But they kept me and my husband [...]

I started my career writing about technology and business. I was on staff at several computer pubs including PC Magazine where I wrote one or two product reviews daily. When I left to finish my master’s and freelance (on October 16, 1999) I was extremely lucky. I continued writing reviews and product-related stories, seeing my [...]

I have a big problem with plastic. It’s everywhere. Everything we buy — even at environmentally-conscious stores — is wrapped in it. Bread comes in plastic bags. Cereal is in a box.

This week we spent the early evening at Brooklyn Bowl, which, to me, is really just a club that happens to also have bowling lanes. It was a launch party event for Yo Gabba Gabba’s live show. My big girl has watched the show. My baby, who won’t turn two until the end of June, [...]

I’ve got some great sites, but I had to catch you all up on one of my non-favorite things this Friday afternoon: The job that got away. My husband got sick back in August. Those of you who have been reading for a while know that. At the time he had his own business. As [...]

Seems like I am always late to post on Friday. End of the week catch-up, I guess. No theme today. Just some sites, services and stuff I’ve found in the past week. BookSwim. Last week I bought The Red Tent. It was our book club selection. I wanted to take it out of the library [...]

Anyone who has been reading for a while knows that when I get hurt it’s usually in some weird, obscure way. Something that prompts an insurance letter being sent out. The letters always want to know if someone else is responsible for the injury. Because hey, how else could you get a black eye and [...]

Busy week, busy day. Lots of work to do. Still, can’t let Friday pass without a few good things and an update on my spend less challenge. This week I purchased the following items (things I could touch): groceries (milk, bread, hummus, berries, the usual stuff), a subway ride card, and a pack of gum. [...]
