I’m visiting one of the best friends a girl could have this weekend so no new “real” post today.
Hope you have a terrific weekend with whoever or whatever makes you feel happy!
Things like this happens to me on the subway all too often.
Make it stop!
Some of the series’ biggest names will make the trip including the actors who play Jim and Pam, John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer, and of course Rainn Wilson, the frequent troublemaker Dwight Schrute.
So far there are no signs that Steve Carell, who played Michael Scott through Season 7, will attend.
Andy Bernard aka Ed Helms should make the trip–after all, Scranton is only two hours’ drive from his alma mater and mine, Cornell.
The element I find coolest though is ticket prices: they top out at $21. Isn’t that wonderful? There are also free events including a come one, come all parade. Something for every Office fan.
Maybe I should make the trip!
There’s a point on Route 46 East in New Jersey where you hit the top of a small hill and get your first glimpse of the New York City skyline.
Every single time, I’m flooded with emotion.
I remember being a little girl and visiting my Aunt Mar in Parsippany with my mother and grandmother. Sometimes we’d leave her apartment and go into the city for a few hours or two stay the night.
Later, the view meant that I was returning home after a visit to my family in Scranton.
For ten years, while I lived in DC, I didn’t see that view very often. Which is probably why that glimpse of skyline still feels like a gift a year and a half after making my return.
The leaving made the return sweeter.
I was late to the Uber party.
“I’m a New Yorker. A yellow cab is all I need!” I proclaimed loudly and often.
Except sometimes cabs are in short supply. Kind of often actually. There are a lot more people in NYC now than when I lived here the first time. With that in mind, I downloaded the Uber app so that the next time I couldn’t find a cab, I’d be prepared.
Sure enough, the time came to try Uber: I landed at JFK late on a recent Friday night after a long flight home from San Francisco. Sick with bronchitis, I couldn’t face a cab line. Continue reading
This photo from the 2013 Kids’ Choice Awards is interesting on its own. How did Kristen come to be sitting on Katy’s lap?
I don’t know her (obviously) but she doesn’t seem like a big lap sitter. Too much attention.
The pic becomes all the more interesting after watching this video from 2009.
Side note: I truly hope someone has educated Adrienne Bailon about the hurtful nature of the word “retarded.” Click here to learn more about the campaign to end the R word.
But more importantly, I went to Qua, the incredible spa at Caesars Palace.
Years ago when Qua first opened, a colleague treated me to a hot stone massage there and I have been trying to make my way back ever since. It’s such a beautiful place.
This time I sprang for a massage and my first-ever facial. Go ahead and make your That’s What She Said jokes now. Continue reading
Imagine a story about two blonde mothers who have sex with each other’s sons. It sounds like a story the perv in a Gotham Writers Workshop would write, but no.
Two Mothers is an honest-to-goodness movie starring Naomi Watts and Robin Wright.
Would you see this movie?
For a lighter take on, um, motherloving click here.
H/t to @candacearm who made me aware that the trailer had hit the interwebz.
