i love pez.
and the disney princesses are my home peeps.
thanks mom!

online dating

as some of you know i am an active online dater...and although i don't want to turn this blog into a forum on that, i did just get one of the oddest emails ever through it and thought i should post it because, well, why not.
Here's the email- i'm protecting the author's identity by not posting his ever-so-creepy picture.

"Hi. I checked out your profile. Thought it was interesting. But I'm not too sure about you. Have you ever been scuba diving? Yesterday I almost got into a car accident"

what's scary about this email is that it's probably his form email.

Ode to the Laundromat

So I was doing my laundry tonight and I thought it would be fun to illustrate the dryers. So I did. There's really no interesting story behind it because doing laundry is boring.

Fabulous Fireplace

At Margot's request, I decorated a fireplace. Again, it's another artistic masterpiece.

Also, I thought I would use Margot's blog as a platform to shamelessly show and tell the world how cute my nephew Jack is.

The Tree At 3E

Hello, readers of Margot's blog. Well, Margot is still here (for another 45 minutes) but she really wanted me to start blogging in her presence. Since this is, in fact, an artsy blog, I have created a stunning illustration to post here. It is the lovely holiday tree here at apartment 3E. Since most of you haven't seen our holiday tree, let me just tell you, this illustration is a 100% accurate representation of it. For more information on my artistic methods and inspiration, please feel free to comment. And no, I did not go to art school.

au revoir!

je vais à Paris et Londres pendant des jours en voyage pour mon travail! j'écrirai quand je retourne!
i'm off to paris and london for a few days on a trip for my job! I will write when i return!

in the meantime, my roomate/editor/friend has requested to guest blog! sooooo, ladies and gentlemen...introducing- melissa pastore! take it away melissa....

and just one more note, an image from my room today! hehe,
happy holidays- from my room to yours :-)

someone very wise once told me (named nick- quoting meg) that the state of your room and of your purse is symbolic of your life. i can't even show you my purse.

Baby Luke!

i've known baby luke since before he was born but i finally got to meet him this weekend!!!!!!!!!
