Let's Go To the Movies

One thing I love about Christmas time is all the awesome movies. These two were awesome:

Reese Witherspoon can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned. Her character in this movie was so endearing sincere. Owen Wilson was hilarious too.

You're not really a New Yorker if . . .

People have mistaken me for a long life New Yorker since the day my dad dropped me off at NYU 10 years ago. There are people in the city we refer to as b&t because they have to cross a bridge or tunnel to get into Manhattan. There are other people who move here for a year or two for a specific reason but leave because they just don't belong here. I call them tourists. All of these people are easily identifiable:

You're not really a New Yorker if . . .

10. You pronounce Houston Street like "Hew"ston rather than "How"ston
9. You hang out in Times Square for any reason other than to go see a Broadway show.
8. You amble rather than walk with speed and purpose.
7. You don't understand the difference between streets and avenues.
6. You still believe that Steve Madden, Aldo, and/or Nine West make decent shoes.
5. You drive
4. You eat at Applebee's, Ruby Tuesday's, or Red Lobster. Gross.
3. Crowd around street/subway performers who are 90% hype
2. You go to any nightclub in Chelsea or Times Square on a Friday or Saturday night.
1. You can't make proper distinctions between the East Village, the Lower East Side, Soho, and Nolita etc.

Love and Other Drugs Trailer 2010 HD

Anne Hathaway has come a long way since The Princess Diaries. I thought this movie was funny and touching. It must have been good since I wasn't checking my phone the entire time like I was during Eat Pray Love, which I think is the last movie I sat through in the theater.

7 out of 12

When I made my 2010 resolutions, I truly believed that 2010 couldn't possibly be worse than 2009. Four apartments and one car crash later I realize that you can't always change your situation, hard work doesn't necessarily get you anywhere, and things can always get worse.

Well I didn't go anywhere new or even go to see the statue of liberty. I did however manage to stay in shape for the longest period of my life that I ever have, I found an inexpensive apartment that I love, and I exceeded my expectations by paying off over 10% of my students loans. Overall, I think this year is wrapping up nicely. I definitely have more friends than last year. But I mostly feel numb.

Another Pair

My trip to Woodbury Commons last week was quite the success. I have now added a fifth pair of Kate Spade Karolinas, in plaid tartan, to my collection

Alex P. Keaton

Aren't sweater vests adorable? The best thing about Republicans is the way they dress. I have been watching old episodes of Family Ties lately and Alex P. Keaton is so cute. Michael J. Fox was on an episode of The Good Wife a couple weeks ago and it got me in the mood for one of my favorite shows from the 80s. I watched Spin City, Life with Mikey, and Back to the Future, but Family Ties is the absolute greatest.
