I’ve kept a handwritten journal for 4 years now and I’m really glad I’ve kept up with it. Andi, I give you credit for inspiring me to keep a journal just by keeping your own since you were a kid!
Anyway, it’s a great outlet and way to remember things, I really recommend it to […]

A co-worker sent me this article - the funniest part is under the “Materials and methods” part which included:
stewing hen or baking chicken
a large carrot
pepper to tase
(among other things)
Translation: Chicken soup really IS good for a cold!
Chicken soup has long been regarded as a remedy for symptomatic upper respiratory tract infections. As it is […]

I know this officially makes me a nerd, but I’m a little bored today, but also really excited about my new tea doo-dad. I bought it at Gongfu Tea in the East Village this weekend (www.gongfu-tea.com) and I love it.

“Frageeeely, must be Italian!”

Is a movie I’ve been meaning to see since it came out and we finally watched it last night (thanks to Netflix *end plug*)

I’d have to say Eleanor Roosevelt’s quote at the end is my favorite
These sentences actually appeared in church bulletins or
were announced in church services:
