It's an ugh day— steamy here in NYC, air so thick you could cut it (or slather it all over you like swampy lotion). I have a blister on my foot that's screaming and I had to run an errand and then the person didn't show up and traffic on that block was awful and … Continue reading Uggghhh
My friend Colleen invited me to write something for her blog about leaving New York and then coming back to it. I jumped at the chance, thinking it was a simple story to tell. I was wrong. Read the article

I've lived in New York for almost two years, and I'd yet to frequent such a spot. They're ubiquitous, but they're often below street level, with a curtain pulled over the window -- they look sketchy. Still, the price was right ($10 for 10 minutes, $20 for 20 minutes, and so on), and my dogs were barking. I decided to give it a shot.
