Tartan Week In New York


Anyone who knows me knows that I’m totally down with the plaid and the Scots.

March 31st kicks off Tartan Week in New York, a celebration of all things Scottish. Visit the Scottish Village in the main concourse at Grand Central Terminal to see such excitement as a demonstration on how Hunter brand wellies are made, ordering your own kilt and job opportunities in Scotland.

Who am I kidding? Its all about hot guys in plaid skirts with thick… accents.

The Baroness Serena Von Munchkin


The Baroness Serena Von Munchkin is my dog, a pure-bred dachshund that her other daddy and I adopted 7 years ago. In November 2006, Serena celebrated her 18th birthday! To give you some perspective, she was born the year I graduated high school, DYNASTY and THE COSBY SHOW were still on television and Reagan was in the White House.

The Baroness is still going strong, despite the fact that she can barely see. She loves walking down the hallway of the apartment building where she lives with her other daddy, eating chicken and sleeping. Long live the Baroness!

UPDATE: The Baroness has been diagnosed with canine dementia! Finally, we understand why she wanders the hallways, stares into space and stays up all night. But fear not, the old gal’s not ready for a straight-jacket or suffering in any way. But we may have to take her driver’s license away!
