Today is my birthday and I am home on the couch, mildly hungover from overindulging at a wonderful party last night. The Fucking Cats are lying beside me, their little chins resting on my lap (a cute trick they learned at Kitty Finishing School) and their bodies are positioned in... Continue reading

Dear Dad, We're in the polar vortex this week, and last week we had a blizzard. I know I'm not supposed to talk about the weather, but you would've really liked this storm – you would've thrown on your loden coat, duck boots and tam o' shanter and jauntily stomped... Continue reading

Oh, that is so touching about your toenails matching! Yes, a "sad honor" is a good way of expressing what it is to take part in someone's dying process. Thank you for your lovely comment.

They seem to be delighting hipsters everywhere, though this particular ice cube was carved in Brooklyn.

I barely suppressed the urge to hug him.

I was totally unprepared - it was so random that I just sort of stood there gawking. But yes, it was awesome. And I say that with the true meaning of the word.

I have a post all written about what's been happening this summer, but the thought of uploading a million pictures to Typepad seems really tiring when the alternative is watching season two of "Call the Midwife." If I had to summarize, my activities this summer have primarily focused on planning... Continue reading

{Last night on the Brooklyn Heights Promenade} Living in New York is like living with a handsome, brilliant and charismatic brute: it dazzles you, then it beats you up, and then, when you're really fed up, it makes it impossible for you to hate it. New York knows - like... Continue reading

After a harrowing, thumb-gnawing week, we took Vernie home from the hospital. He was skinny, scruffy and glassy-eyed, but meowed up a storm and flopped on his back for a belly scratch to let us know everything was OK. In between cuddles, we poke him with needles full of insulin... Continue reading

We were feeding him special diabetic wet food, which he HATES, since he grew up on Purina Indoor formula.

I am so shocked to hear from the vet that most people don't visit their animals! I'm sure being with your kitty helped him pull through. We are hoping for the same. Thank you all for your encouragement and support. xo

If you follow me on Instagram, you may already know that Vernie, the dopier and naughtier and sweeter of the Fucking Cats, is fighting for his life in the hospital. Over the last few weeks, we've struggled to figure out what's wrong with him - diabetes? pancreatitis? cancer? - jabbed... Continue reading

Anyone who considers makeup a trifling thing has not experienced its magic. Lipstick has gotten me through some tough times. When I'm feeling crappy, it lifts my spirits. When I'm anxious, it makes me feel more in command. When I'm plagued by doubt, a quick application is a badly needed... Continue reading

A little while ago, I wrote about not having the huevos to ask for time off to travel far, far away. I tried to find them - I really did – but instead I found a lot of excuses not to plan the adventure I wanted to have (time, money,... Continue reading

After years of staring at the empty, abandoned tree pit in front of our apartment building, I decided to stage a guerilla gardening coup d'etat and take over the public space for myself. I had visions of lilies and dahlias and wild flowers, and was prepared to hold my ground... Continue reading

This picture is from the other side of a sharp dividing line that separates life with my dad and life without him. When I poured those three cups of tea, I was still buoyed by hope that I could get him to eat, that I could comfort him, that we... Continue reading
