On playing with fire and close encounters with the FDNY in New York.




Today was an eventful day. We almost tasted our fifteen minutes of fame courtesy the spouse, in New York, Warhol’s own city, no less.

The importance of remembering dates




    Disclaimer: This is a purely fictitious account and any resemblance of characters to living persons (muse) is purely unintended and coincidental.   Women romanticize everything. They like drama. They give days and dates way too much importance than is necessary. Sounds like locker room conversation? I can see, some of you men who … Continue reading »

Six hundred dollars to get closer to nature – the Korean way.




I have been gifted a Samsung Galaxy 3 by the husband who is exceptionally generous when it comes to buying me gadgets.

Salthill is near Galway and merely a two hours drive from Dublin but thanks to the sea and frequent rain, it is really much colder here than Dublin. Each time I step out of … Continue reading »

Terms of endearment




Since I accompanied the husband to Melbourne to see him play the keynote speaker at his alma mater’s graduation day a week ago, he has taken to calling me “Dude” for some reason.

Travails of a New Age woman
