Sometimes my job lets me do really cool things like go to the Ai Weiwei exhibit at Brooklyn Museum.

Summer Friday means I spent over an hour making breakfast: poached eggs with mornay sauce and chicken sausage gravy on English muffins. Also I tried a tip for the poaching where you stab the egg with a needle (I used a safety pin) and then put it in the simmering water for 10 seconds. Worked so much better than that swirling-the-water thing I tried before.

Last week I spent a few days in Asheville, NC and a few more in my hometown. I didn’t take many pictures, but I did eat a ton of great food from Sunny Point Cafe, Early Girl Eatery, Faidley’s and Dangerously Delicious Pies.

I don’t like Amazon, but I’ve been wanting to read Katie Coyle’s book for a while now and it seems like the only way to get it is through Amazon unless I wait until January 2015 when it’ll be published in the US, so I just bought a book through Amazon and now I still won’t be able to read it until late July because it’s shipping from the moon apparently.

The RSS reader I use got hacked/shut down so I have no idea what is going on in the world right now.

The area where I work isn’t really in a neighborhood: it’s north of the Flatiron District, south of Midtown East, west of Kips Bay and east of Chelsea. Recently though, people have been calling it NoMad for North of Madison Square Park and now there’s a fancy new hotel on Broadway with that name. I passed it today and there was a huge line of people outside the salad/juice place next door, which sort of made me feel bad about the grilled cheese and tater tots I ate for lunch, but mostly just made me go “ugh.”

I ate (most of) this: grilled-doughnut-and-ice-cream sandwich at Garage Restaurant.
