State of Greece

I’m in greece where trash is literally flooding the streets. Disposal workers are on strike. Busses and trains are off and on because public transport workers are on strike. My cousin’s six year old is home from school because the elementary school teachers are on strike. Junior high and high school students will stay home…

Several Things:

First: I really wish I were psychic. Or that Cheaptickets.com would tell me the truth. What do you think discount flight companies mean when they say “Last day to buy at this price”? Is it: “buy this today because tomorrow it WILL be more expensive” Or “buy this today because tomorrow it MAY be more…

Death and Glory. And deadlines.

When I was 15, my friend Jessica and I decided we would make lists of things we’d like to do before we died. I really wish I had taken better care of that because I think I’ve done about half the list already! It’s actually on my livejournal, I just haven’t written in that in…

The West, America, Urban Loving, Animals

Really, I frequently think about what massive a country we live in and how little I know about what it all is. Flying over places like Nebraska and Kansas is terrifying. Huge crop circles. All corn. So huge there’s no doubt in my mind they have something to do with aliens. I had the pleasure…

Making up for lost time!: From Zurich with Love

One more! I had a layover in Zurich… I alerted as many people as I possibly could of this because, well, it was torture. I know. “Shut up. You have no idea how stupid you sound when you complain about being stuck in Zurich, meanwhile it’s been snowing snowstorm after snowstorm back home and we…

I have returned! My myth involved lots of food and I am now fatter.

Blogs are completely self serving and self indulgent. I know that, you know that. I have, you see, substituted my blog indulgence for a variety of delicious exotic indulgences during my time away. I ate lots of baklava, had lots of coffee and frilly caffeinated drinks at cafes with plushy couchey seating outdoors, I drowned…

Commencement: Live Your Myth in Greece!

That’s their travel slogan. Ha. Parting from the ‘Merica is always bittersweet. On the one hand, I like to get away, recharge my batteries, take a stroll on the greener grassy knoll… you know. On the other, I know that when I come back I will hate everything for at least a week. Everything. Returning,…

Suit Suit: Inspiration from Yves Saint Laurent. It’s Le Smoking!

The Economist did an article -or piece– (Haha) on the suit. Earlier this month, the suit reached its 150th anniversary. The suit! So official, serious, foreboding. It is an integral part of the professional mask so many ladies and gentlemen wear. It is something I may be needing more of on account of my fancy…

Ra Ra Riots

Whether it’s over the pyrrhic victory of Berlusconi, unions and things in the UK, or, really, anyone in Greece that doesn’t believe in accounting… Everyone is rioting all over the place! I find it all so exciting. Rioting is caring, it is an indication of the valor and vitality of a country’s aggregate pulse. And…

Dam Dam Dam Dam Da-Da Da-Da Da Dam.

Feelings can sometimes be so overpowering, they are stronger than my greater self. In the grand words of Einsein: A human being is a part of a whole, called by us “universe”, a part limited in time and space He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest…a kind of optical…
