Diary: On Museums And Self-Respect

I have the immense pleasure of living mere minutes away from some of the world’s greatest collections of art, culture and history in the world. The full list of consequential institutions would stretch for longer than Museum Mile: the Met, Guggenheim, Natural History, Cloisters, Breuer… and that’s not even delving into the specialized niches, like…

Diary: The Day After…

Congratulations America, you survived two years’ worth of yet another round of presidential elections. Yesterday, we headed out to the polls, filled in a bunch of circles, and elected the next Most Powerful Man In The World. The results came in, speeches were made, whoops were heard, tears were shed. There will be protests, some…

Diary: Finding Some Peace + Quiet

My apartment window, in New York City, faces one of the busiest avenues in the neighborhood. Ambulances and honking drivers are a daily occurrence, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg; if I had a nickel for every time I was shocked out of my beauty sleep at four in the morning by a…

Oneshot: When You Wish Upon A Star

  Scotch whisky. On the rocks. There was no finer drink. The clink of the ice cubes in the whisky glass rang out echoing in the Southwestern desert, briefly interrupting the afternoon’s silence. Jack picked up his half-full handle and poured himself a generous portion. He whisked the glass around in a circular motion a couple times, allowing…

Diary: Welcome to the subway, ignore the smell

My commute to and from work is usually the same every day: wake up at around 8 in the morning, take a shower, eat some toast, then walk the block-and-a-half it takes to get to the Myrtle Av./Broadway J,M,Z station (trust me, the subway system is less complicated than it sounds at first glance). I…

Diary: Hello Florida!

I relapsed. I’ve been so good – I haven’t spent all of my money on Disney tsum tsums, I didn’t go out and get a Mickey tattoo on my forearm, and I didn’t post any Snaps with the caption, ‘MISSING DISNEY SO MUCH’. But then, a few weeks ago, I realized that my Universal Studios season pass…

Diary: 2016 In The Big Apple

One more year, one more tally mark on the chalkboard. No, I’m not going to the Times Square Ball Drop, just like every other sane-minded New Yorker. If I wanted to stand around in the cold for six hours with people who don’t understand the concept of hygiene, I would be back at Disney World….

The Disney Diaries: One Month Later

Eight months really did go by in a blink of an eye. I think back on that one balmy January morning, my first day in Florida, and I remember my heart pounding in anticipation as I moved past the welcome banner strung up at the entrance to our check-in location. It’s happening, I remember telling…

Oneshot: Vampire 101

Peter quickly realized, about a half-second after his transformation, that being a vampire wasn’t all that it was cracked up to be. You lied to me, Stephanie Meyers! he thought, as he surveyed his glitter-free skin and his rotund beer belly that, regrettably, survived the painful evolution process. He was on the verge of chucking…
