• An Apartment Tour and a Cordial Invitation to the RFTL Happy Hour

    Well, I haven’t had time to cook much in the past few weeks – but that doesn’t mean I didn’t take a few hours to create a wall of shoes in my apartment. It’s all about priorities, people.

    Since many of you have expressed curiosity, I’ve assembled a few pictures below to take you on a tour of the new place. It’s like a little piece of home in the middle of New York City. One that I’m going to be spending far too much time in soon if I don’t start making more friends.

    Speaking of which, a lot of you guys happen to live in or near New York. I know this because my website lets me track creepy things like that. Also because many of you have facebook messaged, commented, emailed, or tweeted me noting that we should probably become BFFs immediately.

    So, New Yorkers, I’ve decided I want to put together a happy hour. Just something to say “HI! I am the one writing all of the really weird stuff you read.” And if none of you bitches come, I will cry in the corner of the bar by myself and write a really depressing post about you as punishment.

    If you live in the area or are visiting the area and would be interested in coming to grab a drink (or seven) with me, go ahead and fill out this two question form so that I can see when/ where would work best. It won’t bind you to anything, just shows that you want to be kept in the loop.

    Until then, you can entertain yourself by looking at pictures of my adorable exposed brick wall. Happy Monday!

      Your posts are so F-ing hilarious! I have you on my RSS feed and look forward to a good laugh (and a good recipe). I’m in Miami Beach. If I lived in NYC, we would be having cocktails!
      Thanks, Mary

      Aw boo, wish I were in the NYC area so we could meet up – plans for coming to DC anytime soon? It’s a quick train ride! Anyway, curious on how you hung stuff on brick?? Like did you use those 3M sticky things or did you actually put a nail in the brick? Thanks!

      I would dearly love to be BFFs but you are skinnier and prettier than me so it just can’t happen… Also, I’m in Australia which is an issue.
      However, your shoe rack – amazing!

      Pups look well settled. If I lived closer, I would definitely be down for cocktails and happy hours. But unfortunately you’re wise enough to stay away from Wisconsin.

      Hi Laura,
      First of all I love your blog and read it all the time. I find it cathartic to commiserate with your posts. But more importantly for the moment, where did you get that fabulous shoe rack?!

      Best wishes,

        Bed, Bath, & Beyond! Quite reasonably priced as well :)
