The following is a public service announcement*

#######

It happens.  You know you’ve had too much to drink if…

  1. You’re tweeting celebrities who have notorious anger management issues.
  2. You put your bra on backwards.
  3. You go on an online shopping spree, but don’t enjoy it.
  4. You click on the TV remote to answer your cell phone.
  5. You propose to the cat.
  6. You mistake the coat closet for the bathroom.
  7. You’re considering hiring a pain coach – for your family members.

* Not really.  Just kidding.

Happy Hour ain’t always so happy, but it can be funny.

One of my favorite Nora Ephron movies… and one you may NOT have seen! This Is My Life

NoraEphronThis is the first film directed by Nora Ephron. Based on Meg Wolitzer’s novel, it’s a sweet family comedy about a single mom from Queens who becomes a successful  standup comic, but struggles to balance motherhood and career.

The screenplay is by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron.

With Julie Kavener, Dan Akroyd, Carrie Fisher, Samantha Mathis and Gaby Hoffmann.

This Is My Life is a real gem. Film director Lena Dunham (“Girls” on HBO and “Tiny Furniture”) agrees!  Read “Seeing Nora Everywhere” at The New Yorker

 

 

Carly Simon SoundtrackThe bouyant musical score is by Carly Simon. On Amazon.

Hilarious!

 

Caught Carrie Fisher’s “Wishful Drinking” show at the Victoria Theatre in Dayton, OH.  She’s touring the country, you’ll love it. Based on her book.

 

One World Trade Center

 

NYC. Shot this pic from a cemetery at a church east of Ground Zero. It is the new One World Trade Center, now taller than the Empire State Building.

 

The Statue of Advertising

 

Selling light bulbs. And not even those twisty, super expensive ones.

 

Yum!

 

Give me your tired, your poor, your licorice lovers. Thank you Twizzler, very cool.

 

 

I’m suggesting an alternate name for this restaurant – “Sick Real Quick”

Disclaimer: Just kidding, I actually ate at this restaurant, it’s great! It’s in a Manhattan neighborhood dubbed “Curry Hill.”

The famous Woolworth Building on lower Broadway. Stay out. Dogs and actors, too.

 

Homeless on Wall Street. Don’t you love irony? I know you do.

 

 

Facial napkins (aka Kleenex) made from counterfeit hundred dollar bills. Just what I need when my allergies are flaring. Hmm, the dollar is pretty low – maybe these are real bills?

Map it!

 

Who needs a subway map or an iPhone APP when you’re wearing these nifty flip-flops?

 

 

 

Charming and funny play “Love, Loss, and What I Wore” by Nora Ephron & Delia Ephron based on the charming book by (you guessed it!) the charming Ilene Beckerman.
