Its approximately 4:30am and yes, I am awake. I blame it on partaking in an early evening “accidental” nap. When I say “accidental” — its usually a result of gluttonous over-eating coupled with the cooler drop in temperatures that instigates this sort of behavior. And so being awake at these ungodly hours makes for mischievous behavior. Much surfing to be had. Mainly catching up on my multiple blog readings, responding to emails, working on miscellaneous work activities. But most importantly, I tend to engage in alot of my deviant online behavior (i.e. cyber-stalking) during these twilight hours. With the advent of Facebook, Twitter, and various other social networking venues — it makes for an easy task. Thanks Google! You’ve made my socially unacceptable yet obviously participated activity that much easier.
And in these tough economic times a good deal is certainly worth its weight in literal gold. I’m not ashamed to say that I will search high and low to find the cheapest prices from a wide range of varying websites. Who doesn’t? Review to come.
♥ The Wedding Weekend — Sarasota, Florida ♥
The Reception (Longboat Key Resort)
The afternoon ended with a bizarrely entertaining trek all over downtown Manhattan solving clues and relaying messages involving plane tickets, a frog, and an albino midget.
I have been remiss. I apologize. Truly, utterly, sincerely, and with heartfelt apologies. Its been a chaotic past two months dear readers — hell reader (singular) — who am I kidding. I’ve sorted, packed, moved, unpacked, sorted, organized and now I’m exhausted. Expect a few more posts to come with pictures and a more detailed account of my absence. Hopefully.
I keep forgetting how much I enjoy the artistic and creative nature of Boston — in addition, its various culinary finds. Awhile back I stumbled upon Marliave tucked behind the active streets of the downtown area. Aside from walking through the strange alleyway — I would never have thought twice of a restaurant with vintage appeal to be tucked in such an area. Marliave is a 1875 themed restaurant with French influenced cuisine. Downstairs offers a charming bar area but the best part of the restaurant is the upstairs with views of surrounding Boston high rises. For you cheese lovers out there, Marliave offers an actual cheese bar. That’s right — cheese bar served with various artisan meats along side various flavors of fig jams, lavender honey, and olive oils. Pairing all of this with a lovely glass of wine — makes everything in the world right.
A modern interpretation of Othello. Even though I wasn’t able to see it from start to finish — it is definitely something I’d love to see in its entirety. Shakespeare on the Common is an event coordinated every summer and I’ve never had the pleasure of experiencing it. Its inspiration, obviously, is from NYC’s famous Shakespeare in the Park.
My lavender and dahlia plants died awhile back. I fear the next plant I purchase will actually shrivel up instantly with mere sight of me in its visual range.
P.S. If you seek to buy reference material for professional school tests (i.e. MCAT, LSAT, DAT, etc) — contact me. I have a ton! Also plenty other types of books — must let go, must let go.
