I was not particularly organized this week- I think I’m suffering some sort of end of summeritis. But here is what I did do this week. All events take place in New York City unless otherwise stated. Ratings are 0-5. I have received no compensation for any of these things- though I often wonder if I should be reimbursed for time taken out of my life…..
Food Network Star– I’ve been Team Jason and Team Corey from Day 1. I do not know who is going to be crowned this evening- but I am going with Jason. It’s been a fun, if predictable, season. 4.2
Sharknado 5– No- I didn’t watch Sharknado, or any of the franchise. But Husband did have them on yesterday afternoon- I don’t know which one…..does it matter? It’s sharks flying around- I believe 5 is subtitles “Global Swarming”……I think I have missed my calling, because who wouldn’t want to write for this franchise? And….lest we forget….I heard a rumor that Fabio is doing a cameo as the Pope. I may have to watch it just to see that……As I didn’t watch it- I can’t rate it…but wow-
The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature- This is one of those situations where, having not seen the original, I was totally lost as to what was happening. Not. My daughter and I going to see this movie signifies that she is regressing due to increased stress levels, we were bored and hot, and this might be worst summer for movies ever. It’s silly, and the message gets lost in stupidity- which is bad, because the message is to work hard and nothing comes easy, and working as a team helps to solve injustices. I just wish the creators of the movie worked hard, and worked together, because the whole thing is disjointed. 2
Exhibits: Force of Nature at The Museum at FIT Fit is a fashion school. There museum is amazing, and free. If you like fashion (and I mean enjoy it, you don’t have to be fashionable- I love beautiful clothes, but I am least fashionable person in world) you need to check out this place. The present exhibit is both odd and gorgeous. Per the exhibit brochure, “Forces of Nature examines the complex relationship between fashion and the natural world”. Curating an exhibit about fashion always amazes and impresses me- to know that much about clothing is mind boggling. Venue 4.5. Exhibit 4.5
Street Taco You know when I say you’re never too old? Well- I lied. I am too old to go to places like this. The music is ear shattering. The food is average. But I truly believe that if I was in my twenties, I would love this place. Attractive people, having fun, drinking what appeared to be refreshing cocktails. But for me 3.
Rosa’s Pizza Middle Village Queens This was a great quintessential New York slice of pizza- the regular, the Grandma, and the Sicilian. Great dough, cooked properly. Good cheese to sauce ratio. 4.5
Shake Shack- I know- I’ve extolled the virtues of Shake Shack before- but they have a hot chicken sandwich now- hot as in spicy- as in I’m a chili head and love spicy food. 4.3
Ample Hills Creamery Ice Cream at Baked by Melissa- My daughter got an ice cream- so to be fair, I just had a taste- but this is seriously good ice cream. Rich, and creamy and delicious. If you ever see Ample Hills ice cream- try it. 4.
I forget to mention last week- my gym has still not properly fixed the air conditioning in the spin room. It is not pleasant. I might need to join twitter just to complain about the gym.
I did not finish reading a book this week!!!! Horror!!! That alone shows you how off I was!
I just realized that there is a SPAM folder for comments. This confounds me because I discovered really well versed comments stuck in there. It also confounds me because somehow, the person talking about their favorite game of thrones character, 16 times, did not make it into SPAM folder…..so I apologize for those of you who had taken the time to write comments that appeared to go unnoticed….
Speaking of comments- thank you to everyone who joined the conversations this week. The best thing about the internet was on display this week- a bunch of people, from different backgrounds, sharing their opinions on subjects. At the end of the day, communication really is the key to everything.
