Catskills

Catskills

How is already June? This was compounded by my birthday. The older we get, the more time disorients us. I spent the first part of the month overly conscious of mortality and frankly, indulging in a pity party…more like a pity gala being more emo than 13 year old shopping at Hot Topic. We spent a weekend up in the Catskills (David’s birthday follows mine by ten days). This isolation, babbling brook and hot tub crashed my pity party. This was much needed.

The rest of the… Continue reading | 5 Comments

EauMG’s January 2016 Favorites

Jersey City Heights

Pretty winter day in Jersey City.

January was an eventful month. I entertained. I was entertained. I lived through a blizzard. I got a lot of stuff done.

I had a Turkish friend staying with us. This forced me to do things which made me fall back in love with living on the East Coast. We ate and drank. We went to see Kinky Boots with America’s sweetheart Wayne Brady. He’s a great singer and dancer (which I already knew)… Continue reading | 19 Comments

I visited a few museums but still not as many as I wanted. Since moving here, museums are one of my new hobbies. I went to a few drag shows and got to see Seattle’s “jift” to the world, Dina Martina. I sort of joked that wherever we live has to have a Chinatown, a Barneys and… Continue reading | 15 Comments

EauMG’s August 2015 Favorites

Manhattan

Manhattan from a good side.

August was one of those months that felt like it was just dragging along. I was so over the heat and was sick of hiding away in my A/C bunker. I felt guilt for being hostile towards summer when I know winter is going to be terrible but really, summer is abusive and I’m going to complain. As the kids says these days, “Sorry not sorry”.

So, what happened in August? We celebrated 11 years of marriage and 11 years of… Continue reading | 13 Comments
