Do you hear the people sing?

Today I saw Les Miserables on stage for the second time in three months. It’s probably the show with which I have the longest, strongest affinity for: I’ve seen multiple productions, I own the DVD of the movie, and I’ve listened to the songs hundreds, if not thousands, of times since I first heard them … Continue reading

What’s in my head today.

To be honest, I don’t have much to say. But that’s not why I’m writing.  Occasionally I feel like I have to put words on paper (or screen, as it were these days). Tonight was one of those nights. Fueled by wine (as the best writers are, of course), I found myself opening WordPress for … Continue reading

Operation Happy Place.

Due to the events of last weekend, I made it a goal for myself to minimize solo time as much as possible. I didn’t want to be alone with my thoughts, unless I was using them to power a run (I do my best running when I’m angry), nor did I want to spend the first … Continue reading

What it’s like.

My ex-husband is getting married this weekend, and I have no idea what to do with myself. Tonight, I tried running, wine, pizza, and hockey. Each made me feel better for a minute or two, because each made me forget for a minute or two, just after a minute or two, the relief was gone. … Continue reading

Dispatch from inside a fortress.

I’ve actually been trying not to write for the past two weeks.

But sometime around midday today, as I should have been doing work but found my mind wandering … Continue reading

Hockey, Westerosi style.

It all started with a simple text from an old friend: Sidney is my Jon Snow. No one likes or respects him but he’s still fucking awesome. It was midway through Saturday night’s Pens/Rangers game. Said friend has lived in Capitals territory for nearly ten years, and so there are certainly few people near her … Continue reading

What’s making me happy this week.

Hi, guys. I don’t really have anything going on, but I didn’t want to get back into a month going by and me not writing anything. I definitely need to concentrate on the positive, because last week was one of the worst I’ve had in a really long time, and despite my attempts to start this … Continue reading

How’s New York? What’s new?

I just got back from Christmas break at home, and as anytime I go home, I get a plethora of “how’s New York? what’s new?” type questions. And usually I deflect them – “New York is good, nothing much new” – and allow the other person to tell me about their life. Usually their kids, … Continue reading
