Give the people what they want

Last weekend Kristen and I literally spent the day walking. It was one of the nicest weekends with the nicest weather we have had in a looong time. Starting at a Brooklyn flea market in D.U.M.B.O and working our way back across the bridge for some charred marshmallows at Momofuku, we eventually made it back to the UES and decided to cut through the Park to get to the UWS. That's when we stumbled upon the season's first rollerblading group getting their groove on.

It's never questioned if we are going to stop and watch because we do. And for a long time.

So there we stood while the snow that still covered the park grounds tried to melt away in the fluke 50 degree weather. We laughed, we pointed, and we silently begged for some awesome wipe outs. (Of course there were several.)

Breaking News: Source of Maple Syrup Revealed

Apparently, the recent smell that has been drifting through Manhattan's air has made in the news. Yes, we have been able to actually smell maple syrup. (And it smells gooood.)

Growing up in the wrong decade

Well you might have noticed in the news, but it's cold here in New York! And cold weather means hibernation, which calls for very uninteresting posts, or a lack of posts all together. Stick with me for random evening like the one described below...

So a small group of friends and I decided we would start off the new year with a book club. I chose the first book, A Girl's Guide to Hunting and Fishing, and sent out invitations for a good 'ole winter fiesta to discuss. In turn the fiesta became a mere pre-party for a concert we all wanted to go to. RUBIX CUBE! The ultimate 80's cover band.

And there is nothing, literally nothing, I love more than an 80's cover band.

So the night started with Kristin's Burritos, Donna's Margarita's, Rockwoood Guacamole, Real Sangria and a little Gipsey Kings (my contribution because I am a disaster in the kitchen) . We spent a good 5 minutes discussing the book, and spent the rest laughing, eating, and drinking. Martha was confused as to why no one else was dressing up for the concert, and if you know Martha you can probably guess it didn't really make any difference. She dressed up anyways. That green unitard was quite a smart purchase.

So here we go, picking up a recent window sill give-away on our way out. (That poor teddy bear did not see us coming.) Subway, a no go. Cabbin' it it to Canal and Broadway. As the cabbie pulls over I believe my exact words were, "Ok everybody have everything??" Pitiful, because I leave my phone in the cab. (Later was returned by the cab driver for a nice hefty tip.)

And here is where my story ends because I believe pictures always speak better than words.
