New Yankees stadium

Billy invited me out to a ball game at the new and fancy Yankees Stadium and it was a gorgeous day in the sun. Although our team lost (Indians), I think I learned a thing or two about the game. The people on the field are called players, not men. A pitcher throws the ball and a catcher, well duh, catches it. There are 9 innings, not 8. And they serve sushi at the stadium. 


Lisa vs Diddy

The oh so wonderful Lisa decided to bring a few of her friends to NY to celebrate the big 3-0. The night started at our favorite neighborhood spot, Abistro, for a yummy yummy dinner and after that we took the party over to the annual Prince vs Michael Jackson dance party at BLVD. 

Can't wait to see what you do for your 40th, Lisa! Fly us all out to Phi Phi, perhaps perhaps?

This little light of mine

Meet Ms. Betty Baldwin
She is a cute little Schwinn New World from back in the day when things were cool...

Took me two wonderful hours in the sun, but I sure made her shine.

T H A N K // Y O U

Hello Hello pwitty interweb people. I figured i'd momentarily step out of my cacoon to post about this fantastical happening.

So as you read above in my Craigslist post i lost one of my sketchbooks. About a week later i get this in the mail:
Yep, some good folks found my book AND mailed it to me! > Craigslist had nothing to do with it ]

Now i know that goofy 'If Found' stickers on stuff look ridiculous but as helmets do - they save lives.

So, here are some scans of the inside; ive attacked this one for about a year.
...and since i didnt expect to see this book again i quickly moved on to the next.

So far:
Thanks ___________ for being kind enough to return it to me. Im shooting karma pellets your way.

Oh, Poster boy.

(Spotted on Fulton C-stop. Manhattan bound.)



Can anyone offer some information about this little creature?


Brooklyn Signage

I got to check out the Brooklyn Storefront Exhibit at Brooklyn Historical Society right before it closed - and was left much more educated about our little borough. The stories that go with the beautiful pictures (by James and Karla Murray) were all so heart warming and made me want to go out of my way to keep the buck in Brooklyn. 



Our friend from Adschool, Trey, invited us to a fun little thing called Google Sandbox. The purpose of the event is to introduce Google products (Go google-docs, go!) to advertising professionals. Those who weren't impressed by that alone, were introduced to another advertising proffesional's friend. Open bar.

Thanks for getting us drunk, Trey!


Sloppy dancing

Danced Friday night away to the beat of The Presets at Webster Hall. The most fun I've had in a long long time. Afterwords we slipped in a secret door and ended up at another dance party. Lots of sloppy moves and gin and tonic's later, I took on the task of balancing down a winding staircase. Looking at the picture now, I'm wondering... maybe it was me who was the winding one?


April's Target 1st

Cleaned out my closet and sold some of my old clothes at Beacon's Closet and Buffalo Exchange and spent the money on dinner at a cute little restaurant with a wonderful group of ladies. Lots of giggles and toasts later, we ended up shaking our bon-bons at Target 1st Saturday at Brooklyn Museum where we were out-danced by a tiny little 2 year old who pop'ed and did jump-splits like she she does it for a living. 

Good times. Good peoples.
