I don’t know if I’ve ever been more intrigued with a New York congressional primary winner than I am right now. No, let me restate that—there’s no doubt that I’ve never been more intrigued with what’s going on in New York politics than I am today. I don’t mean that as an antagonism toward New […]
Each day since Christmas, I’ve included seven chocolate covered espresso beans in my morning routine.

Like most people’s brains, mine sometimes does loops around and asks weird […]
I woke up this morning with a billion things going through my head, mostly things I’m wanting to get done, and also this weird question that I’ll probably blog about sometime (Top 5 List: people you would like to meet with over coffee). Once I’m up, I drop a few kibbles down for the cat, […]
