New Year’s Eve is the only holiday that feels truly worth going all out for. I love the specificity of midnight, I relish the idea of reflecting on the good memories and preparing for better ones to come, and I thrive on the suggestion of reinvention. Each new year, though it truly means nothing, is an opportunity to try something new, learn, broaden, and seek. We don’t have to make resolutions, and I’m particularly opposed to resolutions, but we always have an opportunity to cheekily say, “New year, new me.”
LOVE: Ingobernable: I know that I mentioned this televisa last week, but it wasn’t the main topic of conversation, so I don’t think I did it justice. I had just […]
LOVE: Hello Fresh: I have been hearing about these grocery boxes forever. I’ve always been intrigued but never ordered one since I like grocery shopping and have little interest in […]
Still I dared to dream. I didn’t dare tell Jessica that we were almost assuredly not getting tickets because she would have had a meltdown and gone into a psychotic and depressive episode that she might never emerge from.

I adore them, obviously, I worship their existence, but I realized that I’m not always consciously thankful for their presence in my life. That changed yesterday when I realized Eddie might be no more. I love that behemoth of a moody feline. He’s an angel and he’s already used up three of his nine lives. I don’t ever want the last one to come. Until it does, I will love him with all my heart.
LOVE: Turbans: I don’t remember when my passion for turbans began. It was long before one was wrapped around my head on the Giza plateau when I rode a camel […]
I have put off writing this post for nearly two months because I don’t want to do it. It’s not even procrastination this time, even though that curse plagues every […]
I have had a hangover once in my life. It was not pretty. I vomited out of my window and it plastered the side of my house… The rest of […]
Monday: Why don’t you plan your final meal just in case you ever find yourself on death row? I hope you don’t, but it never hurts to plan ahead. I […]
Monday: Why don’t you adopt an unlikely pet, like an opossum? I think it would be awfully fun having an opossum. Think of the reactions you’d get when you’d post […]
