No Work Wednesday 

This Fourth of July, I celebrated my freedom from the beige cubicle (...as well as larger, more lasting freedoms, of course...)

I also celebrated the life & times of Mr. Andy Griffith (can you believe I'd never seen one single episode of his eponymous show before yesterday?  It's streaming on Netflix, and it is delightful.)

I also celebrated root beer floats.  And iced coffees.  And friendship.  Whole lotta celebrating going on.

Traditional holiday afternoon meet-up with Tiff @ VBar
Erring on the side of productivity (far from promiscuity)
we talked about the book we're writing
(PS - we're writing a book)
and found potential source material on VBar's bookshelf

Sounds like a great day!! I stayed home with the pugs all day sewing. So lame! And also maybe drank a bottle of champagne while watching "The Dark Knight". You know, the usual 4th of July stuff.

i finally had the opportunity to eat at the Shake Shack (theatre district loc) last month. I was delighted with my burger and my "Jelly's Last Donut" concrete. I've been by Madison Square Park a couple of times, but that line always made me run across the street to Eataly.

Also picked up a few Nutter Butters from Bouchon Bakery.

Your city is delicious!

Stephen,

Yup - we waited in the Shack line for at least 45 minutes. Definitely not 'fast' food.

And wait - Bouchon makes Nutter Butters?? Uh-oh. That is dangerous knowledge to possess. I bet they're amazing!

You will never look at those Nabisco cookies the same way again! I am serious. Super-amazing.

But only if you like peanut butter..
