Where Everybody Knows Your Name

I'm on a roll tonight. I really should be doing homework but once again here I am blogging it up. But I was recently in Boston and I stopped by Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall. It was a cold day and my Mom and I were pleased to see a warm inviting pub. Guess what pub it was? Cheers! Also known as Sam's Club. Now it wasn't the original Cheers- there are several of them…

The Ten Most Annoying Travelers

In my 26 years on Earth I have spent many an hour in airports. Ten hours at Heathrow, 4 hours in Frankfurt, 6 hours in Sydney, 3 hours in Baltimore, 2 hours in Cleveland and more. And what have I done in all these hours? Well naturally, what any good writer does......I have observed. There are so many interesting characters at airports. You see people from all over the world. People who are happy. People…

The Bloom and Gloom

It's 4.58 a.m. and I'm blogging on my iPhone from a hotel room on the waterfrront in Cambridge, Massachusets. I know it's incredibly strange but I seem to get the most blogging inspiration slash bursts of creativity when A. I'm in a hotel room and B. It's 4 a.m. I should really be asleep but my brain is working like a locomotive. I'm at another conference this week and one of today's speakers got me…

With Liberty and Justice For All

Healthcare is a fundamental Human right. America spends hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars on medical aid overseas but practically has to fight a war on our soil to pass a healthcare bill that will provide neccessary medical aid to our people. I thought that our country was founded on the belief of equality and justice for all- but this whole healthcare debate has questioned my beliefs. What is there to debate? Do…

Suki’s Yay or Nay for Spring

When I was in high school I was the fashionista of the school newspaper. I didn't know I was the fashionista, I just knew that I would tell the high school crowd what was hot and what was not. It felt really good to be the ALL POWERFUL even though I knew that nobody really ready that piece of sh*t paper. But ever since I was young I had a fascination with fashion magazines. I…

There’s Too Many Sunsets That I Haven’t Seen

When I was a kid I wanted to grow up so fast. I wanted to be just like the adults. Things were complicated when I was a child and I thought if I could only just grow up, everything would become clear. I thought as soon as I reached that 'grown up' age a white light would hit me and the world would suddenly all make sense. But it didn't. Sometimes I wish we could…

Get the Dog’s Name, Make it Sing and Don’t Fuck Up

Right now I am sitting in a darkened hotel room with the soft sound of mozart drifting across the room. I'm at the Hotel Hershey sprawled out on possibly the most comfortable quadruple pillow top bed I have ever encountered in my life and I can't stop thinking about the line I just heard this morning: "Get the dog's name, make it sing and don't fuck up." This is why I enjoy conferences. These kind…

My Oscar Predictions

Best Picture: The Hurtlocker (CORRECT) I think District 9 SHOULD win but I don't think it will. Avatar has a slim chance, but I still think the Academy are going to give it to a film with more depth. Actor in a Leading Role: Jeff Bridges (CORRECT) The critics seem sure of Bridges' win and he did win a Golden Globe. However, the Academy does love them some Clooney, as do I. So if Bridges…

Walnuts?

I made this salad that I absolutetly love and thought I would share it here with you. It's perfect for summer nights (I know, I wish it were sunny out too) and it is super healthy. Ingredients: 2 cups fresh arugula 1 cup walnut halves (you can use almonds instead if you like they are both good) 2 fresh pears, chopped into small slices (any you like but I like Bartlett pears) Sprinkle of blue…

Goodbye East End, Hello Sublime

So last night was the last night for the East End Cafe, a hole in the wall bar in downtown Newark. And yes the bar was a hole in the wall, a little dive-ish, not the place to go on a first date but you know what? It had some je ne sais quoi. It had character. I remember when real bands used to play at the East End. Like good bands, nationally known bands.…
