I haven’t updated this or been on Tumblr in a while. I have been going through so much living in New York the last 6 months and am currently without a place to call my home. I’m sleeping on my friend/boss’s couch at the moment. But I wanted to share my Yogi Tea Quote of the Day…

"Noble language and behaviors are so powerful that hearts can be melted."

This Sunday will mark the 3 week mark of getting my 4th tattoo and I love it.  I went to a place 2 blocks from my house called Hand of Glory. 
By the way, it hurt.

Brookvin

So, here I was again at my favorite wine bar. 

I’m just really posting this to give a little love to my favorite Brookvin bartender, Travis.  He’s just awesome, there isn’t really anything else to say about him… and so is the rest of the Monday night staff.

I appreciate them making me feel comfortable.

Thanks guys!!!

The Weekend.
Friday - Work, lunch, back to work and after the regular daily wonders, I met a friend for dinner at 5 Napkin Burger.  Burgers were good, beers were good and due to having beer, vodka and some other concoction, I ended up in a gay bar called Bar Tini (which was awesome) and I had a very hurtful hangover.
Saturday - Brunch with my gays, which I took home and didn’t eat until much later in the evening.  I spent the rest of the day and night nursing my hangover with tylenol and water.
Sunday - Brooklyn Flea Market and lots o’ walking.  I walked from Fort Greene to Brooklyn Heights to Dumbo and almost all the way back.  It included a stop at the Brooklyn Bridge Park (the picture I took there is above) and it was beautiful but very cold.
Good times!

What I learned on this St. Patty’s Day:
1. People wear a shitload of green.
2. These same people drink on the train at 9am with kids in tow.
3. The police on St. Patty’s Day are not the kindest while you’re trying to get through their random blockade to get to work.
4. There are so many high school bands in the parade I thought it was the Rose Bowl Parade.
5. St. Patty’s Day is a day for legitimate, diagnosed alcoholics to roam the streets drunk with no end in sight.
6. Listening to Sara Bareilles during all of that was my saving grace from slapping somebody on the train home.
7. Oh and here’s the silver lining, while the parade is going on, my lunch spots are pretty much empty. 
Thank you St. Patty!
The pic is from my office window, it’s the sea of people and bands on 45th and Madison Ave.

I also am on a very big Dixie Chicks kick when I take the train to work every day, so here’s a little taste of what I’ve been listening to.  :)
