Mara’s houseplant is looking glum. I moved it to feed it some more sunshine.

The fall 2010 issue is now live and you can click on the link above to go directly to it. Mara highly recommends Postcards from Aix. You should read the forward and then click though all the postcards. They are really quite amazing. And this is coming to you from Mara, a girl who sends way more than her fair share of mail!
My official stance is that at this point snow jokes aren’t even funny anymore.
I know I am leaving everyone is suspense. I’m sorry. I will fill you in later. Mara and I have a full day at MoMA today with her students. We are both looking forward to it. It has been a while since either of us as been for a visit and Mara is pretty excited about taking her students through the permanent collection. Some of them have never been!
This is SO EXCITING. I can’t tell you why but Mara and I have to go to the rescue!
It is snowing again because apparently it snows every week. I’m over it.
Mara is card making this afternoon. Many of you know Mara makes homemade cards for everyone for just about every occasion. Every few weeks or so Mara makes a whole batch of cards for all the upcoming birthdays and the other card appropriate occasions she can think of. I can’t post pictures since some of you are probably getting cards but these are the days I feel like I work in a card...
This morning we awoke to a blizzard and now it is sunny and clear. I know I am stating the obvious but I feel like weather seems to be consuming all of our lives and daily conversations these days.
Moving and grooving. Today’s task list is rather long but Mara is powering on through. My task list includes kindly suggesting you save the date, Wednesday, March 9th, to celebrate Mara’s birthday as well as support The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers. For more information and ticket sales you can click here. Please note Mara’s artwork will be part of the silent...
The post Christmas snow really is melting. It has only taken more than 3 weeks. It is wet slippery and slushy out there. I can report that Mara is still really angry with the unresolved issues with the united states postal system. However there are other pressing this that require our attention so right now we will attend to those. But if you are looking for you own distraction and want to see...
United States Postal System, You were asked to simply mail a priority envelope from downtown Brooklyn to Williamsburg in a timely manor. Mara even paid extra for delivery confirmation. It has been over a week and your system has stopped tracking the envelope. This was time sensitive material and well if this envelope does not get located in the next to days things I am sure are going to get...
Mara is making progress but the grumbling is getting louder.
Sleet. Sweet. Yeah, not so much. It is good for Mara she has a whole load of writing to do today. I know she would rather be drawing but this is not about what she wants to be doing it is about what she needs to be doing. I had a nice 3 day weekend. I hope you did as well. Jenna brought home a rotisserie chicken from Fairway last night and I think lunch is going to be Mara’s shining...
I'm going to be a star in Sydney, Australia! →
My name is going up in lights on Wednesday, January 19 at 8:48:00 PM EST is yours?
I’m sorry folks. It has been a rough morning ‘round here. I should only need to tell you lunch was not eaten till 1:30 and that was the first food Mara ate all day. So yes, as one might imagine, Mara’s low blood sugar level just made everything this morning much more awesome. I am happy to report that an egg and cheese and a fig newton later we are back on track like any normal...
Crisis under control. Mara has a new power cord for her computer.
I call bullshit on emergency VIP status at apple store soho.
Mara’s computer power adapter started burning up from the inside. We’re off to the apple store because apple headquarters has cleared us with VIP emergency help status.

Wow. We like this.
We don’t need new snow. We still have the old snow.
Mara sent me home. She has hit the peak of her frustration. Currently it is every man for himself and I am the only man around and well I saw this as my opportunity to escape alive.
Today feels much colder than the past few days. Perhaps because the sun is not really shining so brightly. I just forced Mara to jack up the heat instead of putting on a hat, scarf and gloves while we are INSIDE.
Last night was a night of burger testing/tasting. I am sorry I forgot to take a picture of the most delicious hose special two8two burger but I scarfed it down to fast to snap a photo. I think Mara scarfed hers down even faster than me. Let me tell you we will all be in for a treat when two8two opens up this spring on Atlantic Avenue. In anticipation of the opening and to be the first to know...
I’ll will play Jimmy Fallon and Mara will play Gwyneth. Shazzazz. We did it.
