Even better

Way back in December I was celebrating the return to television of the dramady Ed.

I had fond memories of the Gilmore Girls-esque show,  but the real thing is so much better than I remembered.

I smile the entire time I watch it, which I really appreciate right now.

Thanks Tom Cavanagh and Julie Bowen. And Michael Ian Black. And Justin Long.

The clock is ticking

I just found out about this holiday!  Less than an hour to go…

Disbelief

Did you know Christian Mingle, the dating website for believers, has produced a made-for-TV movie?

Believe it.

It’s playing on UP Network as I write this.

And I cannot look away.

Talk about product placement (which I have been of late) — this one takes the cake.

Whackadoo.

My life

…and I wouldn’t change a thing.

King of the world

My boyfriend and I were comparing our kingdoms the other day.

You know, what we are ‘king of’ — our unique talents, our little quirks.

For example, he is the king of the non-sequitor. His rapid change of topic can give you whiplash.

He also will often preface even the most simple answer with a complex disclaimer. (He worked in advertising, so he gets it honest.)

When I asked him what quirks of mine he had noticed, he landed on, “You walk fast.”

He’s 6’2″. I’m 5’7″. And he thinks I have a fast stride.

Feeling pretty proud about that.

Reminiscing

I was on yet another airplane this morning, bored, so I decided to go through my phone storage and delete old files and pics that I didn’t need anymore.

I was surprised at how many docs were on my phone. You should check yours; like me, you probably only downloaded files on your phone to take an quick look and store them elsewhere.

So I axed most of them.

I kept more of the pics, but what fun it was to scroll through them!

Reliving my family’s recent beach trip to Florida…fun visits in NYC with friends and family…Lou and my Harry Potter World adventures…and my trip to Tokyo last year!

If you need a quick pick-me-up, browse through the images in your gallery. I guarantee it will put a smile on your face.

Rubbernecking

I leave tomorrow on a seven-day, three-city business trip.

cardboard box

I had so many materials to bring home from the office, I had to carry them on the subway in a cardboard box.

As I was awaiting my stop, I noticed something different about my ride home. Typically New Yorkers avoid all eye contact. Tonight their eyes were darting towards me quickly, with seeming discomfort.

It suddenly hit me — they probably thought I had lost my job and the box contained my personal effects.

I thought about producing a few tears, but that seemed like bad karma.
