Twitter Spotlight: Laura McKittrick aka @xxGreenwichGirl

Laura has been very busy establishing the Greenwich Girl brand including a magazine and blog. Now it’s her turn to stand front and center.

I try not to bore you but…

Search terms are like dreams: the only ones people care about are their own. The only people who get dream analysis from me are my nearest and dearest, you hear?

But this one was too bizarre not to share.

Mascara

What the what?!

PS I *did* meet Chrissy Teigen, and I did post about Aaron Paul so the search terms are not totally screwy.

The best thing I ate recently: tarte tatin at Gato

 

Although several items on the dessert menu sounded appealing, I had read on Gael Greene‘s blog that tarte tatin was a must-have. She was correct.Tarte Tatin at Gato edit

It was great to say hi to Bobby Flay. He seems to be enjoying his newest restaurant.

PS If the day comes when salted caramel goes out of style, I’ll be sad.

Twitter Spotlight: @MarinkaNYC

Writer Marinka is a woman of mystery. Which is why you won’t read her real name in here. And why you won’t see her picture.

But this writer is worth knowing–to the extent that Marinka will allow it–so I hope you’ll keep reading.

Twitter Spotlight: Rod Benson

Who is Rod Benson aka @boomtho? Only the most popular pro basketball player in Korea. And an entrepreneur, graphic designer and writer too. Remember when I told you about Rod’s hilarious blog?

The dude is smart – he graduated from Berkeley. A 2012 Cal alumni publication article about Rod quoted one of his friends thusly:

“He was kind of a nerd,” says Renee Pesiri ‘07, a Berkeley law student who became friends with Benson during freshman year. “He taught me the Dewey decimal system.”

Too much Rod Benson? Never.
