The Central Park Zoo

I love zoos.  Listen, that’s not weird. First of all, I’m a girl so wandering around a place that is typically for children is automatically less creepy than if I were a dude particularly if you’re alone which brings me to my second point.  I never go to the zoo alone.  So after 7 years in NYC, I finally went to the famous Central Park Zoo. Just to be clear, it was nothing like the movie Madagascar.               The zoo was great despite the lack of zebras and the intense humidity (it really was!). I didn’t even have to push any kids around! Although, I managed to forget to take pictures of the two most exciting animal displays: the penguins and the lemurs. I have no excuse for not taking a picture of penguins because they really are adorable. But I think I failed to snap a shot of the lemurs because while they were more entertaining than the other animals, they’re a little racoon-ish and their tails are as long as their body and for some reason that really grosses me out.

I was that guy.

Earlier this week, I hated on my flight from LA to NYC. I complained and complained. This made me laugh and brought me back to reality. Louis C.K. is so funny.   Love,...

I (heart) the Emmys

You guys, My 2011 Emmy dream came true. Yes, The Daily Show won another Emmy AND I was able to see it happen first hand.  This wasn’t my first Emmys experience. I also went last year but I loved it equally as much this year as I did in 2010. I actually didn’t know I was going until the Wednesday before so I quickly booked a plane ticket and made plans to visit my brother and his family who live in LA.  I wasn’t too worried about finding the right dress because last year I just went to Macy’s and found exactly what I wanted.  Unfortunately, it wasn’t as easy this year and I only had about 3 hours on Friday night to find something.  I ended up buying 3 dresses and after schlepping all of them with me to LA, decided on this one with the help of my niece Sophie. I wore the same shoes as I did last year. Shhh, don’t tell. If you were watching E! with Ryan Seacrest, there’s a good chance you saw me walking down the red carpet. I typically try to stand behind him for a few minutes so my mom can get a glimpse of me on TV. On my way over to stalk E!. The picture’s a little dark but you can see the little man (Ryan Seacrest) if you look closely. For those of you who played along with me on twitter, this was, in fact, Kathy Griffin.      She looks better from the back.

Make out, Marry, Murder 9.16.11

I both marry and murder the Soup Nazi in this round. You guys been watching a lot of Seinfeld recently? @james80d  macgyver, Indiana jones, James bond Make Out: James Bond Marry: MacGyver Murder: Indiana Jones Ok at first this looked easy and then suddenly I was murdering Indiana Jones. I feel pretty bad about it AND then I remembered the 4th Indiana Jones movie and felt slightly less bad about it.  I have to marry MacGyver. He’s a real handy man and every girl needs a husband who can fix things.  And of course, I would make out with James Bond and then when he invited me to be a Bond Girl (that’s how it works, right?) I would REJECT HIM so I can tell my children about the time I dumped James Bond. @velvetfelt Richard Pryor, Richard Lewis, and Richard Jeni Make Out: Richard Pryor Marry: Richard Jeni Murder: Richard Lewis And after I made out with Richard Pryor and told my friends they’d be like, liar liar, pants on fire…. @dubcook  Jon Stewart, John Huntsman, John Lennon  Make Out:  John Lennon Marry: John Huntsman Murder: NO ONE Jon Stewart is my boss! What are you trying to do to me?!?!? @sltyndall  me, Barney, or Ted #howImetyourmother Make Out: Barney Marry: You Murder: Ted Now, I like How I Met Your Mother but Barney is obviously gay (in real life and on the show because what guy tries THAT hard to prove he’s got mojo?) and Ted is so annoying. JUST TELL YOUR KIDS WHO THEIR MOTHER IS ALREADY! And I don’t know you but you were smart...
