Well, Hello Strangers…

Oh man, have I missed you all!  It’s been almost 6 months to the day (!) since I last posted and lots of things have changed in my life.  First of all, WordPress has made a lot of upgrades to their blogging platform, so it feels really weird and unfamiliar and it’s making my armpits kind of clammy.  I’ve also been at my not-so-new job for a little over 8 months now and I am incredibly happy with the company I work for and the people I work with.  They make me laugh and I wear a lot of Chambray now…and combat boots.  I took a real vacation to visit my roommate from college and other friends out in LA which almost spurred a spontaneous move out there, but decided I would miss New York too much. I’ve also started saying “Oh man!” a lot in everyday conversations (see above), so look out.  

Keeping with tradition, I have continued to eat my way through Manhattan, Westchester County and some of Long Island, and have found some things you might find interesting which I will post about in the future.

This little tidbit was sent to me this morning and it came in the form of: Ice Cream.

Frozen Yogurt, to be specific.  You all know that I can tear through a pint or 9 of ice cream on occasion, but here’s a reason to not feel as guilty when doing so.  My best friends Ben and Jerry have come out with a line of GREEK FROZEN YOGURT.



Imagine your loyal breakfast friends Fage or Chobani made into a tasty dessert! Frozen yogurt with fiber?  It’s like Jamie Lee Curtis’ dream!  Flavors that I am most excited for are banana peanut butter and blueberry vanilla graham – hot damn!  No more flavors with the word Chubby in them for me!  I hope my local bodega carries them soon so they can charge me $12.  Yay Manhattan!

And yay for being back.

A New Yorker Explores New York

It’s kind of a running joke with my friends and family that as a born and raised New Yorker, I can only count on one hand how many times I have ventured to Brooklyn.  In my defense, I only have a few friends who actually live out there and we normally hang out in Manhattan, but that doesn’t mean that Brooklyn has lesser cultural chops.  On a normal day, I would never go by myself to explore Brooklyn, but I was lucky enough to have one of my best friends come visit me from Miami, and give me an excuse to play tourist.  Of course we picked a deadly hot day to trek across the Brooklyn Bridge (there AND back!), but it didn’t stop us from feeling like Miranda from Sex and the City when she meets Steve (or Kerry, in our case) halfway between Manhattan and Brooklyn and they decide to rekindle their romance.  Our reunion was just as romantic with hugging and ice cream and heat stroke.

While Leah was here, we also did something I kind of said I would never do. HEROIN. I’m just kidding. What we did was worse. We went to the Empire State Building. I KNOW.  We went at 9pm on a Sunday night thinking it wouldn’t be so crowded and waited over an hour in line as they herded us like cattle from one check point to another, to a different elevator to another line and then finally we were there.

And guys, the view was out of this world. The air was cool, the tourists were pushy, and all you could hear was the hum of the city.


Accidentally took a cool picture of Leah taking pictures.

You can even see my apartment building in this photo!

If you have a guest in town and don’t know what to do, check out these walking tours.  Leah brought this with her and we had a blast, just never enough time!
