Oy, what a day.

I won’t go into details, but today was like one extended “Lucy” episode and I never did get to New York to see my grandchild. And since my car isn’t fixed yet, I probably won’t get there for a couple of weeks, at least. (Can’t get a rental car. Long story.) Nothing worse than grandmotherly […]

So my friend and I went to this neighborhood brunch place yesterday. One of the main attractions was that they advertised that they start serving brunch at 9 a.m. Very few places around here serve food that early, with the exception of the one remaining diner, and the food there is overpriced and meh. A […]

Snow joke

I’m hoping this is the last one of the season. Last year, it was so hot in April, I had to start using the AC. Bookmark It

How cold is it? Let me put it this way: I was meeting a friend downtown for dinner last night, and the wind chill was 20 below. I wore leggings, pants, wool socks, suede boots with wool lining, a tank top, a flannel shirt, a fleece pullover, a neck scarf, a down-filled parka, a wool […]

I was reading before I went to sleep last night when I saw a migraine scotoma appear. (See above picture.) I thought, “Oh shit,” turned off the light and went to sleep. But it was hard to sleep, because the scotoma was so much brighter and more colorful than usual. I woke up two hours […]

Black eyes

My best friend, who is sometimes even more of a klutz than me, had a little accident when she was helping someone move this weekend. What happened was, a dozen 2x4s fell on her head. She has a big goose egg on her forehead, and yesterday, she woke up with two black eyes. She told […]

Living in the past

I don’t know why, but for the past year or so, I’ve been trying to replace various things I remember from my past: A bottle of Tweed cologne, because it reminds me of my mother. The ’69 Toyota Corona that was my favorite car, ever. (God, I loved that car!) A bulky Peruvian sweater my […]

So I’ve been writing down everything I eat for the past month (Excel spreadsheets are so useful!), trying to figure out the specific source of my unpleasant gastrointestinal woes. I was supposed to see this holistic specialist who puts everyone on a total elimination diet (my friend Maya was on the verge of throwing herself […]

Fresh air

I’m still driving around with the windows open because of the exhaust leak. Thanks to donations, I have the money — but my mechanic works in his yard and we’re waiting for a stretch of dry weather. I think we’re going to get snow a couple of days next week, too. Ah well! Bookmark It

Tested

I had an echocardiogram and stress test again yesterday, because naturally, the cardiologist at Penn wants to redo the tests that were done at Temple. (Way to save money, guys!) I can’t believe how long it all took, and I predict that everything’s fine. They just want to cover their asses in case I drop […]
