Shells on the shelf

An update on my recent pasta post

Those stylin’ shells have been spied on the shelves!

pasta update

The pasta packaging without compare was on display in a grocery store in Toronto.

Thanks for the pic! (I’ll take one of each.)

Penciled in

Okay,  I finally caved.

After watching a fellow passenger color for three solid hours on a flight from San Francisco to Minneapolis,  I bought two books this weekend and gave it a try.

It’s pretty darn fun.


This page is from a coloring book on Tokyo (which I visited in 2014).  I also got one on New York City.

I would write more,  but I think I  will color instead.


Chelsea Market has displayed fabric wings on one interior wall so tourists can fancy themselves real photographers.


Works for us locals,  too.

Chew on this

dental glasses

You know you want ’em…and you can buy ’em!

But you have to floss them every day, so plan accordingly.

Dear friends and family,


I have found the perfect gift for each and every one of you!

(No wrapping required)


As many grilled cheese sandwiches as I have eaten in my life, I can’t understand why I don’t own these yet…


I must be a part of the club, right?

(Probably wouldn’t wear them…but it’s the principle of the thing — ya know?)


Welcome to the dictionary, oh favorite exclamation of mine.

I can remember the perplexed stares of strangers when I first pulled out the phrase. Then I saw it on TV in a commercial for Discover card.

And now it’s made the dictionary, in the same issue with ‘hangry.’

If only there was a word for what an amazing week this has been….

Oh yeah!
