it’s hard to be (genuinely) mad when

May 30th, 2011 by Bekah Brunstetter

You wait for a downtown 1 for 15 minutes and then finally you get on it and walk over an ave to the L which you wait for for 20 minutes and finally it comes but then it sits at bedford for 15 minutes and you sit there realizing you could have walked home by now but you don’t move because you could have walked home by now, and dangit, you want the train to take you there, but it won’t, because of a police investigation of something potentially deadly / dangerous, because technically, death is worse than a stupid commute. Usually. Begrudgingly: thank you, police, for you constant investigating.

Instead of some terrifying picture of a police investigation, this instead:

Dan’s back!! We celebrated his safe return from abroad and his law school acceptance with some calzones like giant lobster claws and Brooklyn Brewery and some passing out like old people at 11 pm. DAN!

the End of an Era

March 18th, 2011 by Bekah Brunstetter

I am sad to report that my time with the Kilby sisters is coming to an end. Sarah is moving in with her BF and Anne is going with. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve loved and terrorized the Baby Kitty. Anne is gearing up for the transition by spending lots of time staring longingly into Baby Kitty’s eyes. I’ll either be looking for two new lady boarders, or perhaps getting a place of my own (?) but if you like Lean Cuisines, watching me drink wine and / or dishwashers – please inquire within.

I like this

In an exciting turn of events, Bekah quits Writing, becomes Bathroom photographer.

But seriously, check out this ladies room in The Commodore in Williamsburg. Clearly my favorite part is the little hand mirror, chained to the wall. Because seriously, someone might take it.

Brooklyn sidewalks are covered in feet and feet of snow, ‘cept for tiny little slush paths paved by diligent building owners. The only thing to do, really, is to CONQUER THEM!!!!!! because also, the only thing to fear is fear itself, and breaking an ankle. Which would make it even harder to get around.

The Importance of Getting Home before Twelve

January 14th, 2011 by Bekah Brunstetter

Sure, it was Important to catch Brian Bedford as Lady Bracknell (incredible) in the Broadway opening of the Importance of Being Earnest, and then linger too long at the after party eating a lot of very small carrot cakes. But equally important: GET ON THAT L TRAIN BEFORE 12. I feel like Cinderella sometimes and usually I make my curfew. If I don’t, A fifteen minute commute turns into an hour fifteen. But last night I didn’t and was there to witness all of the bleary eyed folk, having waited for an L for almost 30 minutes, turn into pumpkins, and by pumpkins, I do mean angry tired wolves.
