The End.

I hung up the phone and lay back on my bed, thinking about my life as a movie. This would be the part where the sad, yet inspirational music plays as the camera slowly moves in to frame my face. I’m staring up at the ceiling, ooh, dramatic. I replayed the scene from the night […] more…

Quiet

The train screeched to a halt in the tunnel between Manhattan and Queens. A train stopping in the middle of the night in the middle of the tunnel in the middle of a work week is no unusual thing. Mysterious stops between stations are a status quo on the 7 train. The interesting thing about […] more…

Resolutions

I guess it’s the time to make resolutions you don’t intend to keep past February. Last night I sat up in bed and wrote out a list of things I wanted to accomplish this year. Above my head is a big white board hanging on my wall, it’s filled with brightly colored pieces of paper […] more…

The Double Entendre

I’ve eaten my fair share of Domino’s pizza. In College, my friends and I would stay up to the wee hours of the morning sitting in someone’s living room, smoking a bowl and eating 5 dollar pizza pies covered in pepperoni or jalepenos or mushrooms. I always considered myself somewhat of a pizza snob, but […] more…

A Study In Relaxation

I laid my head back on to the pedicure chair and relaxed into the simultaneous manicure-pedicure I was getting. Suuuuuch decadence should not be fully enjoyed, not really. No, my guilt must play a part in the indulgence, my nagging brain has to interject her opinion about how much money I am wasting and how […] more…

Naked

There was a line of butt-naked people doing cartwheels on stage. One actor picked up a shake-weight and proceeded to bounce her whole body up and down. I watched agog. I’d never seen a burlesque show like this. Christmas songs were sang. Santa hats were worn, except on the other heads of the actors who […] more…

Estro-Toster-One.

My face is now back to full capacity for everything (yay sneezing, nose blowing and nose picking!). I keep spending a few extra seconds in the bathroom at work (you know, because at work spending those few extra seconds makes a whole shift go by a little easier…) analyzing my nose for any kinks, and […] more…

Black Eye

Person: “Oh my god! What happened to your eye? Did you get in a fight?” Me: “Yeah. This guy tried to mug me as I was leaving work. He grabbed my bag and gave me a good sock in the face before running. But, I was too quick for him, I beat the shit out […] more…

The Accident

I looked at the X-Ray for the first time with the Ear, Nose and Throat Doctor in Manhattan. “See: look, it doesn’t look like you’ll need any surgery. You’re nose looks like it will heal perfectly fine.” He said pointing to the profile shot of my face. I saw a tiny piece of bone sticking […] more…

Spilled Milk

What does one do when the magic disappears? Or, more specifically, what do I do when the magic drains out through some unseen hole in the sidewalk and suddenly I am left making out with a man I am very suddenly not attracted to, on a side street in New York City? The night went […] more…

L’chaim!

What does it mean to “act like a child”? I feel like for many that term has a negative connotation to it, as if you are not acting what is considered appropriate for your age. After today’s events, however, I feel quite differently toward that statement. I think acting like a child is a pure […] more…

A Second Helping

I had my second date with Mr. Tall. Although, I wouldn’t call it a date, necessarily, more like (using Mr. Tall’s words) “An Adventure”. I met him in Grand Central station by the clock in the middle. I had been running all over the whole day, having just come from an audition (that went really […] more…
