November, 11 AM
I wake to the stifling heat of my bedroom and the radiator’s satisfied hiss. My face feels puffy. I regret the last martini, sipped on a velvet chaise at a bar with an identity crisis - a pseudo gothic pub shilling $10 drinks and french fries to a motley crew lounging awkwardly on antique furniture. The worst karaoke I have ever seen. And now a cosmopolitan colored flush in my cheeks and...

Website Ideas I Have Had
A website where gentle, talkative men and tired, worried women could connect for bedtime storytelling and kind, comforting monologues until the former runs out of words or the latter drifts to sleep. A place for those who need a voice in their ear, telling them it will all be ok in the morning. A place for those voices.

Late Nights At CVS
Working evenings in Manhattan means that much of my shopping gets done in the middle of night at drug stores, overpriced bodegas, and late night pizza joints (I use the term “shopping” loosely here). My favorite is a 24 hour CVS in the West Village, cozily nestled between a tattoo parlor and a sex shop. Almost nightly, I greet the rather shockingly well-endowed mannequin in the window...

When an evening with a guy starts to get sexy, in my head I’m Eva Green, with a bit of Marion Cotillard - serious, foreign, a bit dangerous. I’ve come to realize that the reality is much closer to that scene in Ghost World where Thora Birch pops open a bottle of champagne and kicks her legs up on an arm chair. “You like me, right Seymour?” Afterward, she gets annoyed...

Sorry I'm Not Sorry
I know she’s an easy target for everyone’s pent up frustrations with today’s over-privileged, under-talented celebrities, but sometimes I feel really thankful that Ke$ha made “sparkly drunk mess” a Look. Without her bravery, I would never be able to put on sequined shorts, a sloppy tank top, an old cardigan, and tights with holes in them, and walk out the door...
