I wrote this several years ago for my blog. The New York Social Diary just published it and I thank them. It’s a Pia and daddy with some mommy thrown in post.
MizBohemia one of my best blogging friends and best friends is back blogging. We were going to make a raucous at BlogHer this summer since it’s in San Francisco but I can’t make a plan past next Thursday–literally I’m supposed to go to NY for five days for Passover and to catch up with too many people
1300 Iraqi soldiers and police refused to fight in the Basra Offensive. Why are we there?
The great unrequited love of my life Frank Rich has an article about Iraq and Standard Operating Procedure. For some reason it made me homesick. I know one reason is that we consider it our responsibility to see every movie about issues no matter how painful.
I’m probably moving to a very large complex that’s like a city within a city. It has tons of walking and bike paths, three full golf courses, many pools. I’m doing it as I have already met people who live there and are hungry for intellectual stimulation and apparently I somehow provide that.
It has three restaurants and a too cute for me shopping center, with more restaurants and two well known clubs. I’m going to be renting a condo for six months and after I sell and see if I like it here, I have a friend who works for the home company so I can buy, a townhouse, at a discounted price and negotiate more discounts. I can’t believe I’m going to be living in a resort but…it has it own cabana with showers at the beach, and is walking distance from it, I tried the walk the other day and it was lovely.
I haven’t told the people I have met about this blog, and will probably ask my friends when they begin to come in May not to. It’s not the immensely popular blog it was that overtook my life. I need to reclaim my old identity.
I have many plans and just outlined ideas for articles I can write and probably now sell. It might be easier to write about New York from a distance and I will probably be going back every six weeks for five days or so.
The post below this is some fresh fiction and I mean fresh
