Let’s Talk Facebook & ‘The Social Network’

Jay and I saw The Social Network this past weekend and like many of the Tweets or Facebook updates I’ve seen, we thought it was awesome.  Sure, it was an origin story that was most definitely Hollywood-ized, but that doesn’t matter.  It’s the ultimate origin story, dramatization and all, because well…it’s a real life ‘hero’ & it’s our […]

Holy Hallows

I never like/watch the movies when they’re in theaters but I may have to make an exception: The first Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows looks really awesome.

Sex and the City 2: The Dry Desert Years

Okay so it’s Friday night & we are determined to stay home and do absolutely nothing.  It feels awesome.  Caught up on Bones (aahhh season finale!) and Glee.  Took a nap on the floor (I was playing with Zoe, closed my eyes for a second and next thing I knew, Jay was waking me up […]

2010’s awesomeness has extended to September

So what could make 2010 even more awesome?!  LADY GAGA IS COMING TO RALEIGH!! Yayyy!!  [List of tour dates here].  For the record, I am excited. And she’s coming on a Sunday which means that I won’t have to worry about the post-work traffic drama to get there in time.  AND she’s going to be […]

Aladdin + Margaritas…Okay, No Blame Falls on the Margaritas

It’s been a very, very long and busy week since I officially moved in to my apartment here in Raleigh, NC.  My days (literally) consist of this:  Applying for jobs, hunting for furniture and general apartment stuff, unpacking/setting stuff up, and trying to get un-lost from the places I’m trying to find.  I have a […]

“The key to success is often the ability to adapt.”

Brace yourselves. This is the last post you’ll see on this blog. I’m going corporate. Well sort of. Within the next day or so, I’ll be pimping out a brand new website version of Ramblings of a Long Island Girl. Yay! Much, much, much, much, much, much thanks to the fabulous Alice (aka Aliceness on […]

Christmas in October

It’s time for a happier post about my weekend, one that doesn’t involve airplanes. So this weekend, I had a completely work-free weekend for once. We went to 5 Guys with Clif (as per usual), then we were going to go see “Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist” but the time was listed wrong online, so […]

“Here’s some money. Go see a Star War.”

I saw Smokin’ Aces with Tricia on Fri. It was a bit of a mess. Considering every actor age 28-45 in Hollywood was in it (Jeremy Piven, Ryan Reynolds, Ben Affleck, Jason Bateman, Andy Garcia, Ray Liotta, Alicia Keys, Matthew Fox), it should’ve been a lot better. What can I compare the movie to? Be […]

maybe a bright sandy beach is gonna bring you back

Being that I had almost the exact same “conversation” today with two different people, I feel the need to include the away message of Brian Sabella, the second person to bring the ‘not-going-back-to-Marist’ topic to my attention today (not that it wasn’t already on my mind/brought up by almost everyone i’ve ever met in the […]

M. Night to Direct Harry P?!

I love it when I find out news a month too late, especially when it’s news that’s just begging for a comment. Apparently M. Night Shyamalan (HA, I only had to look up the spelling of his name THREE times, suckers!), the man behind the awesome Sixth Sense and not-so-awesome Lady in the Water, has […]
