A few years ago I sat down at the bar inside Pretentious Beer Glass Co. and talked to a glass blower by the name of Johnny Glass.  Incredible, I thought, that this guy had found his passion in glass blowing with a name like that.  He had, in fact, his own company by th...

I remember lying in bed as a little girl and staring at the ceiling when I couldn't sleep.  If I stared at it long enough and let my eyes glaze over, I felt as though the room was closing in on me and expanding all at once. I imagined myself ant-like in size, aimlessly...

I went to CVS yesterday with the intention of buying Halloween candy just in case I got any trick or treaters. As a first time homeowner living in a new neighborhood, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. As it turns out we didn't get any... zero... zilch... but that's n...

I was in my mid-20's when a tiny, one bedroom apartment became my home in December of 2009.  I was living by myself and really enjoying the new found freedom of not having roommates for the first time in my adult life.  Now that I'm 36 and finally moving out, it's the...

For those of you who don't know, Johnny and I are in the throes of renovating our new house.  It's a brick, tudor style home, built in 1930 and it's just damn adorable. Here's what I've gathered so far:  Renovating a home is exac...

Believe it or not, I have become more active since I gave up my gym membership back in February.  I traded in the treadmill for a sidewalk.  I run more.  I observe more.  I have pictures that prove my love affair with this city-- a city I grew up in and grew tired of a...

I had a friend tell me recently that when he thought of me he saw a clock.  "Really, a clock?" I asked. "Like your basic, old clock where all the hands move?  Do I have a lot hours, or better yet, YEARS left on that clock?  What are you trying to tell me?"  I was so co...

I've had a lot of people ask me about first friday and what it's all about. Is it just a downtown thing?  My answer goes something like this: It's a way for businesses to support local and regional artists by showcasing their work for a month at a time.  It's kind of a...
