This is one of those occasions where I feel like writing a post for my blog, but don't actually have anything to write about.

But of course, I have a lot of things on my mind at any given point. So here they are:

1. This Terrier had its coat stolen RIGHT OFF OF ITS BACK in Park Slope, Brooklyn while its owner was in the deli buying milk. Outrageous!

A co-worker of mine decided whodunit. It was this guy:

2. I haven't seen any of the Oscar nominated films this year (except Avatar). I am not okay with this. But I also don't feel like spending $12 a pop on a movie, re-ordering my netflix queue, OR purchasing bootlegs off of the street.

3. This explosion happened 2 blocks away from where I work. I didn't even hear it. Guess what? I feel lucky to be alive.

4. This one time, when I worked at a waste water treatment plant for a summer during college, I figured out how to break the firewall and install AIM on my computer. That was the smartest I HAVE EVER BEEN.

5. I just wrote a song entitled: Dancing Magic. I actually wrote down the words: "We'll shine and sparkle everywhere!" I just sang it in our media room and tried to sound like I was a 7 year old Latina girl. I will soon have to present the recording to people who make a lot more money than I do. I keep reminding myself: People pay me to do this. But I don't have a shred of dignity left...


  1. The picture in my mind of that devil dog's owner is scaring me! Re: the song and your dignity, just imagine some little girl or boy feeling all sparkly and shiny when he/she hears it. Maybe that will restore your pride because even if it's not your usual literary fare, it is pretty awesome to have a kid dancing to your lyrics!

  2. haha, thanks for the encouragement. You're right. If it brings smiles to children's faces, I should be content! Long live sparkling and shining!

  3. This post is riveting on so many levels.

    1. I'm really glad your alive. Seriously! That explosion was MAJOR.
    2. Breaking Firewalls is bad ass. I'm confident that I'd be incapable of ever accomplishing such a thing without a brain transplant.
    3. Dude, what is your job? Sparkling Latina 9-year-olds sound kind of awesome. Well, that might just be because I've been watching way too much Nick Jr. but whatever.

  4. Thanks! I'm glad I'm alive as well. I write and produce content for toys! :-) I don't want to brag or anything, but I actually know Dora the Explorer. I know you're jealous.

  5. I haven't seen most of the Oscar flicks either! Of course, I prefer movies with talking animals, so that may be why.
