Friday Social: Take a Trip Down Memory Lane

A long time ago, when we were both married to other people, Bobby almost kissed me. Bobby and I were less than acquaintances back then, not even at chit-chat stage.  It happened late one night when we arrived in the elevator bank simultaneously.  When he approached me and I said hello, my breath wreaked of […] Read more…

RE-POST: Baby Mamas and the Lies They Like to Tell

Originally published in January 2017, I removed the post because I thought the liar learned her lesson. She didn’t. So it’s back to stay.  Hope you like the new art work!  Bobby’s ex-wife is a pain in the ass.  Picture every stereotype you might have about an ex and that would be her. White, sorority […] Read more…

Friday Social: Decorate Eggs for Persian New Year (Nowruz)

  Wanna hear something funny?  Bobby thinks we’re already married. Back in January, while working on elopement details, I was putting together ideas for the sweetheart table.  I was designing a marker that said “Priya + Bobby, EST. 2017” when Bobby protested.  He insists that it say 2016 instead. Remember my post about self-uniting weddings? Well, […] Read more…

Why We Shouldn’t Count on the GOP to Stop Hate Crimes

It’s dangerous to be brown in America. On February 22, 2017, two Indian men were shot in a Kansas bar by a racist, white man.  He called them terrorists and ordered them to “get out of [his] country” before killing 32 year-old Srinivas Kuchibhotla and injuring his friend, Alok Madasani. Ten days later, on March […] Read more…

Tried & Tested: Cook a Meal Together

Happy Monday! Just my luck to head back to work after a one-week vacation nursing a cold.  The frigid temperatures combined with wind gusts are what did me in.  I know because I can trace germ paths 🙂 Braving the cold weather on Saturday was totally worth it, though, because we went to see Cagney […] Read more…

Friday Social: Cook a Meal Together

Can I digress first? I need to gush: I’ve had this entire week off from work and it’s been DIVINE! If my alarm went off at 5:30am, it was to catch Amtrak for a day-trip far away from my cubicle and the never-ending stack of invoices that people keep tossing my way. Sometimes being competent […] Read more…

Friday Social: Walk and Chalk

  Who says graffiti is illegal? The weather is still gorgeous in NYC – 70 degrees is the prediction for today.  I find myself not dreading my daily walks with Bono, my commute…anything outdoors, really. If you’re in the mood to do not much at all tonight, here’s a fun idea to mess with locals. […] Read more…
