Great Big Sea- Buffalo Place Rocks the Harbor

So, this is the first year us Buffalonians had to PAY to attend the Buffalo Place Rocks the Harbor concert. But since it was Great Big Sea, I didn’t mind. The new location at the Harbor? Nice. Really nice venue. I liked it a lot. And the clouds stayed away too! Opening acts, Um, I […]

Magic iTunes

*Magical thinking?* Sometimes, instead of talking to my Magic 8 Ball to answer all my important life questions. I ask Magic iTunes player. The game goes something like this. “Magic iTunes player, give me a song to tell me what I should be thinking about **enter subject here**” Lets, for shits and giggles use, um, […]

Health & Wellness, Personal


So. I have diabetes. Type 2. I was officially diagnosed in the beginning of the year and I’ve pretty much been sitting around for the last 11 months embarrassed and ashamed. THIS IS ALL MY DOING.

The World is Flat.

The World is Flat “Those who get caught in the past and resist change will be forced deeper into commoditization.

Tis hard to be discreet

Tis hard to be discreet…when the person answering the phone comes into work wearing a suit. I am feeling more stress than I should right now. And mostly because of my apartment and landlord. My house, as we all know…is for sale. A ridiculous amount of money (they seriously need to knock off six figures […]

Everything I (N)ever Dreamed Of

Oregano. He had me at, oregano. “What’s your favorite season?” I had to ask such a mundane question, cause I knew that anyone with a penchant for the sun, sand and surf would never win this Buffalo, NY homegirl’s heart. My perfect man answered, “oregano.” At least at the time I thought he was perfect. […]
