Gusbuster

The vet alleges that today is your birthday, you little street mongrel. Happy 1st birthday, darling boy.  I got you . . . um, breakfast.  And a back rub. Please continue being your goofy little self. Read more…

PSA: Mimi Holliday

Tonight I had an appointment on the Upper West Side and had some time to kill beforehand, so I ducked into Loehmanns. I could do with some new summer tops and skirts, so of course I headed straight to the lingerie section. Obviously. I was surprised and delighted to find a number of Mimi Holliday […] Read more…

Knickers in a Knot

I know it’s a little pretentious and anglophilic for an American blog, but we’re gonna go with “knickers” here at Sweet Nothings. “Panties” and “underpants” are just sad, and “brief” and “thong” and such describe specific styles, so “knickers” is going to be our catch-all term for rear-covering undergarments. I touched on some of the […] Read more…

I . . . should probably take a cake decorating course.  I think that's what we've learned here today.  I dyed my own sprinkles?  Does that count?

Goat Cheese and Tomato Tart

Poor Roommate. She’d get home from grad school, open the fridge, and see a covered pie plate where there hadn’t been one before. She’d hope against hope that it would be chocolate pie, or key lime pie, or pecan pie, or anything at all except what it was: a tart starring her least favorite fruit- […] Read more…

Sweet Nothing Du Jour 6/27/12

I will most likely wind up spending the night at the office tonight.  Alls I’m sayin’ is: 1.  If the lawyers/clients eat all the fancy food in the conference room and leave none for me, my vengeance will be swift and mighty.  Or at least sullen and sulky. 2.  If the lovely people in the […] Read more…

Mark Darcy agrees with me.

Fighting

I have a confession to make.  I’ve told you that when I hear women around me talk negatively about their bodies, I speak up and tell them why I think they’re lovely, just as they are.  I do not comment on weight gained or lost by myself or by other people.  I do not cast judgment on […] Read more…
