I’ve Had the Time of My Life

Nobody puts baby in a corner. That

Have a Magical Day

A few years ago some friends of ours were on vacation at Disney in Florida. We were cat-sitting for them and had to call them at their hotel with a question. When the operator at the hotel switchboard connected us to the room she said

Vamos a la Playa…..en el Pueblo de P

Yep…we’re off to the beach…in P-town! WOO HOO! In an hour or so I’ll be picking up the rental car, loading it up with our fabulous clothes (and puppy supplies) and heading down to the Cape. I think it’s quite fitting that the song playing on VH-1 Classics as I type is “Relax”…by Frankie Goes to Hollwyood. ‘Cuz […]

Riding on the Metro-oh-oh

I’ve been observing some quite peculiar behavior on the subway this past week. I’m not sure if it’s because of the visiting delegates and policiticans in town for the DNC, but these behaviors have prompted me to create the following Subway Etiquette: 101 (in no particular order): * Do not board the subway car until […]

Baby? You’re a Dog Tomorrow

You may have noticed that my blog headlines lately have all been song lyrics . Well, today’s heading is the botched title to a song Matt attempted to serenade me with at the dinner table last night? Any guesses (the answer will be below). Our anniversary went very well last night.  I got home around 6PM […]

I am the eggman, they are the eggman – I am the walrus…Goo Goo Goo Joob

Trust me…I will stop talking about this beard very soon. But it’s getting much more attention than the last time I grew one (then again, it could be because I won’t shut up about it). Anyway, this brief paragraph about it is just a segue into another subject….so please “bear” with me (no pun intended). […]

Rainy Days and Mondays (Don’t) Always Get Me Down

The good things, though, is that I’m not down. In fact, I’m feeling pretty damn good despite the gloomy weather. I had a good (although reasonably uneventful) weekend, I’ve got a short work week ahead of me, and my new haircut is short enough that there is absolutely no maintenance involved. This means no pomade […]

A Change in Demographics…and a Philly Flashback

First things first – I forgot to mention yesterday that our long lost friend, Peter (from Salem), surprise visited us yesterday afternoon. It was a good to see him – we haven’t seen him since our housewarming party back in February. Today I went out to get Matt a card and a little something special […]

Life’s What You Make It

Yep – I’m quoting another song title today. This time, by that fabulous 80’s synth-pop band, Talk Talk (although, my favorite song from them is actually the same as their name…Talk Talk). Anyway, I chose that title because, well, it’s true. And I did feel full of life last week while I was on vacation. […]

Birth School Work Death

Does anybody else remember that 80’s song from the Godfathers? For some reason, it’s been stuck in my head lately and I haven’t even heard it in years. Unfortunately, it also got me to thinking about the title and it made me realize that I’m currently in the 3rd phase of the life cycle (work). […]
