Twitter Spotlight: Linda O’Grady aka @ExpatEyeLatvia

If you had asked me six months ago who my favorite Irish blogger in Latvia is, I would have looked at you like this.

Huh? What?

But now I get it because I found Linda and her blog. (By the way, thanks Aussa!)

Linda

Linda teaches English in Riga and I can’t help but think of her as brave. Latviadoesn’t seem like the warmest place in temperature and, well, temperament. But Linda soldiers on, and with…

This is why I don’t watch TV around my parents via @HBO h/t to @JarCardoza and @Candacearm.

Thanks for the laugh HBO! (this one is kind of NSFW)

I love Girls but it’s numero uno on the list of shows Never To Watch Around My Parents.

There are more spots here. h/t to @JarCardoza and @Candacearm.

A list of good reads

A list of good reads

Not just books either. Although I’m reading three right now:

  • The Accident - great for fans of Gone Girl (I just finished)
  • We Need New Names – I’m mid-read now but I think that if you liked Little Bee (I did!), you’ll probably enjoy this
  • Improvise – thoughts and stories about career development

Weekend Update

Weekend Update s/o to @full_of_moxie and her fave raccoon

I approached this weekend with little planned – in a good way! Business travel Monday and Tuesday had left me feeling a bit tired.

Dinner on Friday with my friend Julie popped up as an option. We had a drink at Jane and then dinner at The Dutch. Very fun catching up.

Twitter Spotlight: @SarahSMoon s/o to @StretchedOctave & @Lisa_Schroeder

If I could sum up Sarah in just one word, it would be bookish. Her love for reading and writing drives her career and her passion projects including Clear Eyes, Full Shelves.

But there’s more to native Oregonian Sarah. For starters: Her love of her husband, Josh, and their two dogs. Ukuleles. Teaching. Friday Night Lights.

Get to know Sarah a bit here.

The best thing I ate recently: tarte tatin at Gato

Posted on Apr 15, 2014 at 12PM permalink

The best thing I ate recently: tarte tatin at @GatoNYC1. Great tip via @GaelGreene.

Although several items on the dessert menu sounded appealing, I had read on Gael Greene‘s blog that tarte tatin was a must-have. She was correct.Tarte Tatin at Gato edit

It was great to say hi to Bobby Flay. He seems to be enjoying his newest restaurant.

PS If the day comes when salted caramel goes out of style, I’ll be sad.

My NYC To Do List – Progress Report

As you may recall, I started My NYC To Do List not long after moving back here after ten years in DC. My attention to The List has been, well, haphazard at best.

But I’m focused now. Ready to tackle stuff and add new To Dos.

1. Check out Sleep No More - accomplished!

2. Eat at Traif - achieved, more than once.

3. See the Radical Camera exhibit - missed. That will teach me to pick things with…

South Slope, Brooklyn. $800.00
“Almost a studio” 
“Room has no windows but utilities included”

This one has signs of being an illegal dwelling per a recent @nytimes article. Also, high creepy factor.
