2013 favorites: nyc edition

As of the end of this month we’ll have lived in NYC for one year. It is still strange to me to live in New York. I like it more than I thought I would, though I don’t think I will ever get truly used to it, no matter how long we stay. The buzz […]

tarragon & bone

The internet tells me that the word¬†tarragon derives from something French for little dragon, […]

My favorite might have been this tiny little South African Wine Bar that my wonderful NYC-dwelling sister put on a list of recommendations for me. I love food on small plates, it […]

i dreamt i went to manderley again

Okay, adventure recount time, finally! Only about a week overdue. Last week we went down to NYC for a couple of days. We went to see Sleep No More. Twice. Because I knew as soon as they announced the NYC run that once would not be enough. (Twice was not enough, either.) For those of […]

also, today is my half birthday & i should really have half a cake

As you may have noticed, I was in NYC for the past few days. I met my agent and my editor in person for the first time. They are, in fact, actual people and not just lovely disembodied telephone voices. I drank a lot of wine with my sister. I got snowed on in Times […]
