I've got this thing with cars conking out on me. If they're not running out of fuel, they're running out of battery juice. What's up with that? Ha. So, I get this audition to join a band on Friday. Schedules had fluctuated over the last few weeks and it was hard to get together. Finally, both sides available... Continue Reading →
Couldn't resist getting out of the car in the Staples parking lot in the Bronx to go over to this older gentleman (75+) who passed by me in a red Mini Cooper and pulled into one of the car slots. He was definitely up there in age and looked on the frail side. Not someone you... Continue Reading →
As the drama takes a turn, his strong luscious kiss no longer play a part in her story. She takes out her compact mirror, dabs on a little lipstick, puts on her sunglasses to meet the sun outside the office to hail a cab. Her briefcase heavy and her datebook starting to refuel. It wasn't like her to fall for a such a ding dong....
I am not quite sure what it is but I have a family who has such a drive to go to the casino that opened up in Yonkers this past year. With the exemption of my brother, me and my sister, the rest of them to include my cousins and aunt(s) are like bees circling... Continue Reading →
I played golf this weekend in Scarsdale with a few of the "Golf Chicks of Westchester" at the Saxon Woods Golf Course and I never played so awful. I was sooooooo ADHD today. Scattered in the midst of a most beautiful day which is supposed to be relaxing and calming. Not with me though. Wasn't until after about the 7th... Continue Reading →
I was once told by a woman who I highly respected regarding men. She said, "if the boy in the sandbox is not making you happy, move on to the next sandbox. To have fun. To play. When playing with that boy doesn't seem to meet what you need or what makes you happy, no need for whining... Continue Reading →
To me, my evening last night was the perfect evening. I say this because since my arrival in the Bronx, evenings out have been more on the late side into the wee hours which then infiltrate on the normal process of the next day. Sort of the hours I kept when I was a teenager... Continue Reading →
Me joining my mom on her morning walk in an attempt to achieve step one of getting my full beta-endorphines (see blog below)!
Okay, I'm better. Of course I am. It's that "get through the day and get a good nights sleep and you'll wake up on the right side of the bed this time" kind of thing. Ya think? Well if anything, going through these anxiety things seems to get me closer to an understanding of what... Continue Reading →
Today is a hard, scary day. I don't have the same hootspa I used to have. The hootspa that I would kick fear to the side with a big karate kick and move forward. Today I cannot seem to kick it and I am afraid of alot of things. Yesterday I wasn't. The day before I... Continue Reading →
Life is like a bowl of Cheerios. Sometimes you just have to float.
So I'm sitting in a pizzeria restaurant type deal in Brooklyn Heights and I'm thinking how cute the atmosphere is. Every few minutes or so there's a loud rumbling sound and I realize it is the underground subway cars passing beneath my feet. "Interesting" I think to myself. Feels like I'm experiencing a real city... Continue Reading →
One thing I know for sure, after starting to get the feel of the rainy days in New York (gloomy chili weather today) and the reminder from the New York peeps of the long winter months ahead, is that wherever I move to in this grand city of beauty and dirt must be somewhat close...

Dined at a restaurant named Guilio's in Yonkers last night. This restaurant was suppose to be an authentic take on Italian food being it had been in the neighborhood for years and what use to be a full blown Italian neighborhood. Unfortunately the extremely nearby surroundings are now ghetto living and the food disappointing. Literally... Continue Reading →
It is nice getting my feet wet back in the New York City world of cuisine. The atmosphere, the buzz of the crowd and then of course the food. Of course one cannot forget the sophisticated selection of wines, especially reds that go hand in hand with these types of restaurants.My first impression of Salute!... Continue Reading →
West Virginia, Mountain Momma, take me home....country road! That was the song I was singing passionatley under my breath after getting lost in the back mountain roads of West Virginia this weekend with my brother on the way to my cousin's house in Blacksburg, Virginia to pick up a car they gifted to my mother....
