Perkie and Mowgli

For a long time we were one woman and one beloved golden retriever mix, but we met the best man and now all three of us live in Brooklyn. This is now the story of how two people and one dog become a little family - and a blog with more dog photos than you probably care about.

This weather is bullshit!

The girl next to me at Pure Barre tonight had a really obvious eating disorder …

She was covered in lanugo, that peach fuzz hair that anorexics get all over their body to keep warm since they have so little body fat, and she was all bones and sharp angles.

I just wanted to hug her. :(

I just ate a Bouchon Bakery nutter butter

… I am going to dream about that cookie.

I really want to go upstairs and eat about 17 more of them.

The best/worst thing about my job is that we constantly have delicious free food in the office.

I tried this at Dirck the Norseman the other week and yesterday trekked (1.5 miles each way) to South Williamsburg specifically to buy some of this at a market down there and it was worth the trip. It’s like if garlic bread and hot sauce had a baby. I just had it on a prosciutto, cheese, basil and roasted red pepper sandwich on a baguette, and it was awesome.

Steve and Mowgli ran 4 miles while I was at SoulCycle and Mowgli is exhausted!!!

So when I booked the 6:45 Pure Barre class tonight, I didn’t think I would have to go back to work after, but my phone rang as I was about to run out the door for class and I got more work to do.  Of course it was an emergency, because everything in big law is an emergency.  (Nothing in big law is actually an emergency). I was in a homicidal rage for a minute there but exercise and a Red Stripe are making me feel better. It’s been a long time since I swiped a beer from the work fridge!

When I start going to Pure Barre in Brooklyn I will go in the morning and shower at home after. Unfortunately the Manhattan studios don’t have showers, so I am limited to going after work this month.

Does anyone know how to unsubscribe, for real, from eHarmony?

I signed up for eHarmony a little over three years ago during a particularly single period in Atlanta (those of you single ladies in Atlanta - I feel your pain, it is NOT an easy place to date, harder than NYC in my opinion) but never paid to join the site. I wasn’t impressed with the matches I got - most of them were in the far flung Atlanta suburbs, meaning one of us would have to drive an hour to go on a date, and I was already paying for Match, not that it was worth the money - I went on two Match dates in Atlanta, one with a divorced alcoholic who got blackout drunk on our Tuesday night date and began saying incredibly racist things, but insisted that it was okay that he was doing so because he was using the politically correct terms to refer to the racial and ethnic minorities he was disparaging, and the second with a very cute accountant in his 30s who showed up to our first date stoned out of his mind with a serious case of the munchies and stoner giggles. Actually, more power to the second guy - if you are an unrepentant stoner, best you let girls know on the first date so you can find someone who is down with that.

Anyway, shortly after I signed up for eHarmony I found out that the site’s founders are super Christian (not a problem if that’s your thing) and anti-gay (nope, not giving you one red cent of my money) and since then I have been trying to unsubscribe from their emails. I have unsubscribed probably 97 times, marked each email as spam, and yet they KEEP COMING. I just got informed that I have matched with someone from Dahlonega, GA and someone from Marietta.

Short of changing my gmail address, does anyone have any idea how to get them to stop emailing me?

Hair Question:

Those of you who don’t wash your hair every day - do you get your hair wet and re-style it on the “off” days?

If not, how do you manage your cowlicks? Or are you lucky enough not to have them?

I love this entire collection but most of it is too close to shades I already own to justify a purchase.

That purple though!!!

Steve and my sisters boyfriend are having a jam session. Who knew Steve could play the banjo?!?!

It sounds like Mumford & Sons in here and I love it!
