He adored New York City. He idolized it all out of proportion…no, make that: he – he romanticized it all out of proportion. Yes. To him, no matter what the season was, this was still a town that existed in black and white and pulsated to the great tunes of George Gershwin. Woody Allen

it is so freaking hot in LA.  i’m still dizzy, though at a much more manageable degree, and will probably continue to feel vertigo drunkeness for a while. saw Atmosphere at the Greek last night, made me think of seeing him with Deneice back in 2006 at Emo’s. gotta love music memories.

There’s a moment in your life when you ask yourself “Who am I really?”




disturbing the peace

Irene, ironically enough, translates to “peace” in Greek. Well this little lady sure isn’t keeping the peace on the east coast. My trip in Pittsburgh has been extended due to the threats Hurricane Irene has been imposing on New York City. Hope everyone in the city is being smart and proactively seeking safer grounds.

‘Go back to bed’, said the omniscient interior voice, because you don’t need to know the final answer right now, at three o’clock in the morning on the Thursday in November. ‘Go back to bed’, because I love you. ‘Go back to bed’, beacause the only thing you need to do for now is get some rest and take good care of yourself until you do know the answer.  e.gilbert


As If I Didn’t Trip Enough

When my father was in his early thirties, he experienced his first bout of vertigo; yesterday was my first, five years short of thirty. There’s no definitive cause of vertigo, nor is there a definitive cure – medication to ease the dizziness (that makes you drowsy) and special exercises to relieve the inner ear neurological imbalance. I can only hope this goes away soon and I can return to my normal, non-vertigo clumsiness.




d. all of the above

The Future: Direct your attention to your mouth. I’m thinking either dental work or u need to do more sucking, or maybe you’re just hungry.

Nearly 3 years later, my time at Apparel News comes to an end.  I officially work from home!
