I was watching Dr. Boyfriend try on pants in the Banana Republic dressing room last week
and in my boredom, decided to try on his glasses:
So what do you think? When I get my new pair of glasses (say, this weekend), should I get the exact same… Read full post »
I’m going to Ohio tonight, because Tracey and Dan are getting married on Saturday! Even though we both agree that societal conventions like marriage are ridiculous! And Tracey’s going to take his last name to boot! I’m using exclamation points sarcastically to voice my displeasur… Read full post »
Kamran: I got salad, but I got too much.
1.5 lbs worth.
Defeats the healthy point a little.
Kamran: I know, right?
me: Well, you’re a growing boy.
Kamran: Yea. I’m growing a strong gravitational field with all the mass I’m accumulating.
me: You keep pulling me… Read full post »
I was actually in a non-salty mood for the first Friday in ages, so I convinced some of my ladyfriends (and Steven) to go out for another round of karaoke to make up for our last sad, sad display. This time we went back to our usual spot, Sing-Sing Karaoke,… Read full post »
I mean, not to be creepy or anything, but OMG, photos of Anoop as a baby:
I mean, not as cute as my actual boyfriend (as opposed to Anoop, who is merely my future boyfriend)
And also, while I realize that Anoop looks really awkward in this… Read full post »
My Iranian (pronounced ih-RON-ee-an) boyfriend informs me that tonight is the Persian festival Chaharshanbe Suri! YES! My absolute favourite Persian holiday!!!
No, I didn’t know what it was, either, so Kamran sent me the Wikipedia link, and here’s the best part:
The tradition includes p… Read full post »
This past weekend, I brought home treats from the co-best cupcake shop in the world, Crumbs Bake Shop. (I say co-best, because while Magnolia cupcakes are widely regarded as the most intensely wonderful foodstuff to ever be whipped up in a bowl, Crumbs’ certainly have their own charm.) Kamran… Read full post »
Things aren’t as joyous around here as I’m used to. I’m blaming the winter. I’m hoping it’s the winter.
On Saturday night, I went out for what was supposed to be a wild girls’ night involving all six of my closest NYC ladyfriends. One by one, though,… Read full post »
I’m going home later this month to be in my best friend Tracey’s wedding, and I decided that I might as well take advantage of all manner of cheap healthcare while I’m there, so I called up the ol’ family eye doctor the other day.
I’ve been going to this guy… Read full post »
I, I got you in my pocket

I went to see Tokyo Police Club at a sold out show at Webster Hall on Wednesday night. For the past year, this band has been my go-to when I want to listen to something fun and familiar. And you need a lot of fun and familiar in a… Read full post »
My friend Jack, godlovehim, only listens to classic rock. Take him to karaoke, and he’ll sing AC/DC, KISS, andâ€“if you’re luckyâ€“something as modern as Bon Jovi. So it was pretty funny to me when we went to see The Dark Knight in the theatre last year, we saw this… Read full post »
I wrote my dad an e-mail yesterday that included this photo of him from my sister’s wedding:
I told him, “I think this is one of the best ever taken of you, thankyouverymuch. When you decide to join Facebook to find old classmates, you can use it as your… Read full post »
On my way down to Christopher Street for dinner at Agave Saturday night for my friend Bridgette’s birthday celebration, I saw:
My best friend, Tracey, recommended a couple of weeks ago that I apply to write for Examiner.com as one of their restaurant reviewers. I was dismayed to find that they weren’t hiring any more food types, but they were looking for articles about public transportation, which I ride every day… Read full post »
So, America kicked my future husband, Anoop off of “American Idol” last night because of this song:
It hurt me especially because on that very episode, Ryan Seacrest did an interview with Anoop’s parents, and I really felt like the three of us bonded during those two minutes. I… Read full post »
Tom Colicchio is underrated. Yes, he’s the host of the best show in reality TV history. Yes, he’s a five-time James Beard Award winner. But after dining at his restaurant craft this past weekend, I’m pretty sure he’s actually better than anyone gives him credit for.
The fir… Read full post »
I bought an iBook G4 back in the golden years of undergrad, when THE Ohio State University was paying for me to go to school, and I was rolling in cash. My Mac-enthusiast friend told me, “Katie, Macs are beautiful and smart and wonderful, just like you,” so naturally I… Read full post »
Dr. Boyfriend evidently caught on to the fact that I was boooooooooored last weekend and decided to fulfill my need for mind-blowing adventure and enough excitement to satisfy for days by
taking me to his office.
I've never been a person who actively tries to watch "American Idol", but while my best friend Tracey and I were snowed in at her house last week, we watched her TiVoed episodes to pass the time, and I'll admit that I sort of got hooked. So much so that… Read full post »
This post is entirely for me and not at all for you, so just scroll through the pictures quietly and don't even think of complaining about how long it is. Okay, I’m just going to get it out of the way and say that my sister’s wedding was the best… Read full post »
This pretty much sums up my trip home to Ohio and then on to Kentucky to see my only sister get married:
Super fun happy sister time! (with gum)
A seriously excited, seriously lovely bride.… Read full post »
Today at noon, I leave for three days in Ohio and then two days in Kentucky to see my baby sister GET MARRIED. Seeing as how we agreed long ago to never, ever wed, I obviously feel very betrayed by this. She and her fiancé have been together for… Read full post »
