Pics from the weekend

Whiskey Washback was terrific! My friends Courtney, Caroline and I had a great time drinking and eating (and drinking some more).

We drank Manhattans, and Bushmills with iced espresso and whipped cream.

There was also hot apple cider with your choice of Jack Daniels, Bulleit bourbon or apple moonshine. Continue reading

Twitter Spotlight: Courtney Rubin

We should have met years ago–Courtney and I graduated from the same university in the same year. I knew her name from alumni magazine columns. Courtney handled our class notes some months.

I had read her writing in publications like Self, Fast Company, People and the New York Times and wondered if it was the same Courtney. Indeed it was.

But it was only through Twitter that Courtney and I finally met in person. Thanks Twitter!

Confession: I hate texting

It took a recent NY Times article to force me to admit something. Two things actually.

First, texting is annoying. Like really annoying. I hate it.

This leads into the second thing which is that I’m officially old and Can’t Relate.

An excerpt:

“E-mail has never really been a fun thing to use,” said Ms. Judge, 19. “It’s always like, ‘This is something you have to do.’ School is a boring thing. E-mail is a boring thing. It goes together.”

That is a lie. Email has always been fun to use such as when, at age 23, I thought it was fine to email my college friends about my dating exploits using my work email address.

Incidentally, tomorrow is my birthday. I’m probably older than you. Be grateful.

Proof that I’m old: birthday pic taken with Polaroid camera sans irony.
