The party’s over…
It was a day late, but twice as fun. I donned a tiara, a sash — Miss Cellany, cause I do love a good play on words — and jewels courtesy of the woman of the hour.
The setting was beautifully adorned and the speeches hilarious and heartfelt.
I am so tired I may have to leave it at that.
It was the 50th birthday party that didn’t happen.
Well, not as planned.
I flew to Cincinnati today to attend a surprise party for my best friend from college. Her family had gone all out, and she was totally in the dark.
Then the weather dumped its own surprise on us — ice and snow that made the roads too dangerous.
So we had to reschedule the party for Saturday and let her in on it.
A smaller group of us ended up at her next door neighbors house tonight for an impromptu dinner, which was loads of fun…so really, she is getting TWO parties.

Writing a daily blog isn’t always easy.
Sometimes there’s not enough time in the day. Often there’s loads of time, but no ideas rolling around inside my head.
Today was the latter.
But just when my thoughts were beginning to jell, movie critic Richard Roeper posted this photo to his Twitter feed:
I had such a sugar rush, I might as well have really eaten them.
They are from Do Rite Donuts in Chicago. Guess where I’m headed next time I blow into town?

I do not know Toneh Perry.
But when he offered his thoughts in a hashtag game on Twitter yesterday, I thought he and his entry deserved a larger audience.
The hashtag — #confessyourunpopularopinion
It is not

Rory and I were walking around the neighborhood yesterday, seeing if anything had changed while we were in Montauk, when I sneezed three times.
A friend was walking by and witnessed the sneeze.
“Are you sick?”
“No, I just sneezed. I always sneeze three times.”
“Sounded like a sick sneeze to me.”
“Oh, I doubt it.”
Well, this morning my throat is scratchy and tight. My head is achey.
That man has mad skillz.

Happy 15th Birthday, Rory Dog!
Now that you have vanquished the beaches at Montauk, let’s head to the mean streets of Manhattan that we call home.
Thanks, as always, for making the journey with me!

That pretty much sums it up.
We watched movies and ordered pizza; we’re watching football right now. All and all…
A good day.
