Bad Blogger

Since i have moved to the big city I have been a terrable blogger. Saddly, and funny enough this is due in part to the fact that I no longer have a borring desk job to which I could scroll and click away on the key board till my hearts content. It isn't as easy to read up on everyone on here I love so dearly on my phone while I seat people and take drink orders.
But still, I am sure I could make better use of my time (aka sleeping) and start to get back into the swing of things and do things I enjoy. Like blogging, reading, and being outside.

E and I had our Christmas Tree Lighting Party last night and it was a total success! People came, ate, drank danced, laughed and sang...sure it was along to Glee when the show came on.. but hey it was early...and they are all actors and singers! They can't resist the Glee.

I was so impressed by the ornaments that people made and brought with them. Some where sweet and crafty like a figurine painted gold, or a small jello mold, one person dehydrated orange slices and glazed them to look like glass! Another a small piece of a statue from a church that had been torn down in Brooklyn, others bought theirs and those are just as lovely too!

Oddly the topic of blogging did come up. I believe it was the phrase "Who blogs? I mean No One cares people, stop blogging!" that made me thin twice before I timidly confessed to this here blog. But you know something? I think people just don't now what the hell it is! And true to human natural, it weirds them out because of that. When I did tell them I had a blog (or one that I was rather neglecting) they flung questions at me I am now used to answering. "Who reads it?""what do you write about?" "So you dont actually KNOW these people?".
I smiled and told them I know all of you, and maybe some even better then people who see you on a day to day basis. Here you can be open and free. And I love that.

I am going to work on a post about the different mindset of New Yorkers. Its really very funny at times, enlightening and frightening too.

: There are people who just don't care.. and there are those who really just don't give a fuck. And the man whom I saw peeing between cars on 8th today at 3pm in the afternoon fell into that category. And a good afternoon to you too sir.

I hope you are well,
 and I hope you are still out there :)

Baby It's Cold Outside

The weather is changing here in NYC. For the first time here, my face is cold, my hands are cold, and my ears are cold. I know that "cold" hasn't even started though for the winter.

But with the cold wind also comes the Christmas season! E and I went and bought our tree the other day and trekked it right on home fully equipped with some garland as well.  Our tree is all set up with lights, a star on top and some red berries. We even watched Parenthood (while crying of course) and strung popcorn!! I have never done that before, and it was really fun to do. I made the center piece for our table, and the wreath as well! Of course Mamba and I needed to have some new stockings, so glitter pens were purchased and I went to town :)

E and I plan to have a Christmas Tree lighting party. We are inviting about 15-20 people to come and drink wine, eat treats, play games, and each person is asked to bring a home made ornament to place on the tree before we light it up :) Doesn't that sound like fun?!

I love NYC, and the people I am meeting are great. So friendly, but I still miss my sisters and my friends oh so much. I can't wait until family and friends come so that I can share what I have come to love about the city with them, and find new places as well.

Still can't up load photos (booooo blogger) so when I do there will be a flood of them I am sure!!

OH and I am done painting my room "Jamaican Bay" teal and "frolic" pink. I found a rug at Urban Outtfiters to match the colors and bring in some greens, reds and browns.

Mamba and Toby are actually playing now! They chase each other and run around. But every now and then Toby's claws get the better of poor Mamba and thats when I find her cuddled up in my bed :/ Poor little kitty cat.

OH and the other day I went to Michaels to buy white chocolate peppermint candies, candy molds and Oreo cookies to create a yummie yummie treat!!!

I miss reading Harry Potter, I miss Sister Sundays, and I miss Paradise Bakery cookies :)

Love, B
