NYC

It’s been difficult for me to accept what I’ve got to say and, what I’ve got to say is, “I’ve been collecting unemployment for almost six months.”  There, I said it and, it doesn’t necessarily feel like a burden has been lifted from me.  So in this blog post I’m going to try a different […]

Snowday, Winter Weather Advisory

Horrible weather has befallen upon my city, and it’s a good thing.  Record setting low temperatures, windchills of astronomical proportions and 500 shades of gray.

While reaction from the league was swift, there has been confusion about the use of his vocabulary as being homophobic or anti-gay. A […]

Spring is in the air

Daylight Savings Time means spring forward.  It also means early school programs, late school programs, no sleep, less sleep, dark and saggy eyes…Sleep deprivation is to shift workers as the early bird is to the worm.  Now withstanding the loss of an hour behind me, I’ve adjusted-ish.  I do really enjoy the change of seasons and all […]
