Urban Girl Almanac: Rainy Days

Urban Girl Almanac: Rainy Days

Whew! This week was short, but it was intense. Here’s what I learned:

  • I hate going to the climbing gym when it is crowded in January.
  • Giving Comcast the boot felt SO GOOD!
  • This angled brush is my new favorite make-up tool.
  • My Marimekko umbrella is holding up like a champ in the storm.
  • My first attempt at cooking a roast chicken almost went perfectly, I accidentally put it in upside down. It took a minute for Rob and I to figure out what was wrong with the bird when carving.
  • The combo plate is worth the couple dollars more it costs than a falafel at Truly Med.
  • Going without a car during the storm of the year is challenging.
  • Being a native Californian, I’m a big wimp when it comes to weather. The wind gusts this morning were so scary and we’re on for lightning tonight…yikes.
  • These little floss picks are helping me with another New Year’s resolution. I just take one with me when I read in bed.
  • Did you remember to send your thank you notes for holiday gifts and parties?

With our lack of a car and this terrible weather, it is shaping up to be a quiet weekend. I only want to rest, get a pedicure and see a movie.

    I actually roast birds breast side down as a rule–the white meat turns out juicy every time. The one caveat is this: if you like golden crispy skin, it’s tough to get that result over the breast meat. If you’re not a skin devotee, though, I say flip that bird.

    I totally forget to send thank you notes.
    But look: to accept gifts and to go to parties isn’t a ‘thank you’?

    And, well, I wont try to roast birds when I got who does. Seems quite funny, but I’m not tallented in kitchen. Better don’t try, believe me.

    I can’t believe I’m so late with my thank you’s but I’m doing them tomorrow for sure!
