Thankful Things Thursday: New Sneakers, Thick Thighs & I Really Love Food

Hello. Today is Thursday. This week has been speedy. Probably because I was gallivanting around Fire Island on Monday and Tuesday instead of working. My feet are covered in bug bites. I’m not very excited about that. They’re itchy and swollen and keeping me up at night. I’d rather be sleeping than enduring a scratch-fest […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Bono Is My Friend

Today is Thursday. It is Thankful Things Thursday. That means we will be thankful for things that we may otherwise dismiss every other day of the week. I am hungover and tired, so let’s get right to it, shall we? I’m thankful for live music and U2. Last night I went to the U2 concert […]

Fear

The other day, Dori sent me this link about some creepy things happening on the Upper East Side. Awesome! There’s a serial groper roaming my ‘hood? Ew. I didn’t think much of it at the time, other than thinking, “That’s gross. Who does that? Who wakes up in the morning and says ‘I’m going to […]

This Week Needs Goals

So, it’s Monday. A regular Monday. I’m not in Orlando. I’m not off doing something exciting. It’s just a Monday, and it’s time for work, and I’m honestly not sure if I remember how to manage a normal, 5-day work week. If you’re just joining in, this is what you missed in my life this […]

Ali At The Doctor

Wednesday! When the heck did it become Wednesday? This week is flying. I have a good feeling about today — anybody else? Despite the fact that I hardly slept last night (I cannot for the life of me figure out how to be in bed before 11 pm), plus the fact that I woke up […]

5 Fun Friday Things

That is pretty much the most clever title I can come up with today: 5 Fun Friday Things. I guess I just like alliteration, and I’m admittedly not feeling very clever or creative today. Alliteration, admittedly… Clever, creative… Like I said, I like word patterns. Anyway. Today is Friday the 13th, which means absolutely nothing […]

Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit

When I was in kindergarten, Mrs. Forgiel taught us all that you should always say “Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit” on the first day of every month. It brings you good luck for the following 28–31 days. It’s a habit I have stuck with for the past, oh, 20 years? Maybe it’s habit, but maybe it’s superstition. […]

Ali On The Rest

I’m actually taking a rest day. Is everyone happy now? After yesterday’s humbling running experience, I knew that — as much as I hate taking days off — a rest day was in order. Thank you all for your supportive comments yesterday. I know that one of my major flaws is that I push myself […]

My First Blogger Meetup!

My social circle expanded quite a bit today when Ashley of A Healthy, Happier Bear hosted a blogger brunch at her (fabulous) apartment. I had so much fun getting to know all of these wonderful women, many of whom I felt like I knew already because I read their blogs. The brunch wasn’t just hosted […]
