This afternoon my friend Jamie came over to help me organize my office and hang up some artwork. We spent two hours categorizing a large box of papers and other mementos. For most of the items in the box I was able to find a home, but I still need to come up with an… Continue reading 2009 January | SIMA

Monday through Friday the TV is always on. My days begin with the Today Show and end with reruns of Scrubs. During the afternoon I usually watch a couple of episodes of Law & Order. I feel less alone when the television is on. The noise and the colors are comforting and fill the house… Continue reading 2008 December | SIMA

The evenings are getting cooler, which means that fall is just around the corner. It can’t get here soon enough! When it does, I want to wrap myself up in this shawl. (via Bliss) I love the idea of tea towels, but I’ve heard they aren’t as absorbant as regular terrycloth dish towels. So besides… Continue reading 2008 August | SIMA

I had high hopes for today. It started with a wake-up call from J at 9:30am. We spoke for 20 minutes, and I only cried for about seven minutes total. Our conversation motivated me to get out of bed and start my day. I went into the office and began checking my email and reading… Continue reading 2008 June | SIMA

According to this Rolling Stone article, Adam admits to having fake dreadlocks. I’m shocked. I really had no idea they were fake. Did you? His dreadlocks — which he has always freely admitted are hair extensions — are fascinating up close. They’re so incongruous with the rest of his appearance (”I’m a Russian Jew American,… Continue reading 2008 April | SIMA

J’s been under the weather, so we’ve spent the past couple of days watching movies snuggled on the couch. On day 1 we watched Once (see post below). On day 2 we watched The Hudsucker Proxy. The film’s been around for nearly 14 years but neither J nor I had seen it. Like so many… Continue reading 2008 March | SIMA

LB, JB and I went to see 27 Dresses Friday night–and we all loved it. Katherine Heigl has so much going for her as an actress. She’s gorgeous in a “real girl” kind of way, wonderfully expressive, and has really excellent comic timing. And how stunning does she look at her own wedding to musician… Continue reading 2008 January | SIMA

Thursday was Sukkot, a Jewish holiday, so I didn’t have work. Instead I had two doctor’s appointments and an afternoon free to do some damage at the mall. I bought two pairs of shoes at DSW, including a pair of gold Coach loafers on sale from $119 to $48, and new makeup for Jess’s wedding… Continue reading 2007 September | SIMA

How many of you think this is Pink? Wrong! It’s Gwen Stefani. I also was fooled by the overly sculpted abs and bleach-blond hair. Not an attractive look for a woman. Day 3 on the (full-time) job. I’ve spent much of the past three days scurrying about — rearranging my office and consolidating markers and… Continue reading 2007 August | SIMA

J and I actually left NJ on Saturday around 11:30 AM and arrived in Omaha at 1:45 AM on Monday. Our 8-hour drive to Cleveland on Saturday was mostly uneventful — except for the periods of heavy downpour that made it nearly impossible to see the cars ahead of us on I-80. Though boring, I… Continue reading 2007 May | SIMA
