Err, how was your weekend?

Tell me you haven’t always wanted to lie in one of those crime scene tape outlines?

Just me?


I spent almost all of Friday and Saturday in bed with a wee case of vertigo. I may be the only person in the world that doesn’t mind that drunk-room-is-spinning feeling, it’s like a free amusement park ride. But two solid days of it is no fun. It started to dissipate come Sunday, and if it resurfaces I’ll go to the doctor. My guess is that it’s either ear infection or blood pressure related.

I did leave my bed for a brief period on Saturday night to attend The Fella‘s school ball. It’s nice to dress up once and a while. Having said that, “ball” attire apparently has a very loose meaning. A few folks donned actual ball gowns, while many (myself included) rocked a standard cocktail dress, others wore straight up club attire (bando mini dresses).

I think there comes a point in every girl’s life when she starts feeling old. Saturday night may have been my night. Still, we clean up okay, and that’s what matters ;).

Sunday my BFF came into the city to do a little bonding, we hit up the Standard Beer Garden, The Strand book store, and the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit at the Discovery Center in Times Square. I’ve lived in New York City for almost nine years now, and every once and a while a day of playing tourist feels really good. Since I plan on being buried in work with no hope of vacation for some time now, I may try to have these little staycation moments more often. Maybe I’ll even take one of those double-decker tour busses New York is famous for.

Anyone want to come visit and play tourist with me?



Totally obsessed. Peanut Butter Panda Puffs may be my new crack (not that I ever had “old” crack—crack is whack)
Topped it off with banana and almond milk


Dr. Praeger’s Veggie burger, lite Cheddar, Udi’s gluten free hamburger bun
Baked sweet potato fries


I tried my hand at shakshukah (a middle eastern tomato stew with poached eggs), this one came out much thicker than the last.
Added a side of whole wheat pita and tahini dressing (tahini, lemon juice, water, garlic powder)
