Remember my NYC to-do list?
Now I need your help. As a visitor to NYC, what would you want to do? I have a special houseguest coming to spend the weekend and while I have a handle on where we’ll go each evening for food, drink and general merrymaking, I’m not sure what to do with mornings and afternoons.
My guest has been to New York before so I’m not thinking of obvious tourist attractions like Times Square (ugh) or the Empire State Building. And given that it’s January, planning is tricky.
Whether you’ve been to NYC a lot or a little, or if you’re a resident of the city, I’m eager to hear your suggestions. xo
Here are two recent head-scratchers.
Invictus by Paco Rabanne
The good: the guy has a great physique and I *love* Kanye’s track, Power.
The bad: it’s just so…weird. The awkward motions. The references (I think) to Greek gods set in a sporting stadium. The cheesy act of walking with a trophy on his shoulder. And then, naturally, the hero gets to the locker room where the clothes of the waiting women just fly off.
The good: hmm. Well, it IS an ad for chocolate. And about saying thank you to people. So that’s nice.
The bad: everything else. I swear, every time this ad starts, I think it’s a Saturday Night Live Sketch. The sing-song jingle reminds me of the Golden Girls (which I still love), and yet I hate this ad. My guess is that a US-based ad agency either wasn’t involved or got ignored when they recommended ditching this goofy creative.
Still, will anything ever top the creepy Folger’s ad?

I’ve been trying to draft some clever, thought-provoking posts. A post to make you laugh perhaps. Something that sums up the year in a witty way. And nothing to do with grief – for once.
But, nope! It just hasn’t happened.
I have lots of thoughts and, as usual, a desire to share them, but right now, everything in my head is a bit…scattered. Plus if I take the time to think, you might end up with more sad posts like this.
Part of it has been my recent travel schedule–Sacramento, San Francisco/Walnut Creek, LA, DC and the Scranton area for Thanksgiving. Fortunately none of my Thanksgiving fears came true. Continue reading
Not that this group of kind people would try. You have been so lovely to me.
This Kate Spade coat*
You know from past posts that I’m a huge fan of the brand’s outerwear. While I love the pale pink of this coat, what I really need is a basic black coat–with some flair, of course. I’m waiting for this one to go on sale. Continue reading
Have you felt left out when your friends compare Christmas sweaters?
(OK, probably not. Most of my Jewish friends have better taste than that, but just play along).
There’s even a sweater dedicated to that wonderful Jewish tradition of going for Chinese food for Christmas.
I’m feeling a little eyfertzikhtik, you guys.
