Today I Turn One

One what?

No, the blog, it turns one year old today.

I thought a bit about what to write but in the end New York City offered me content. And I didn't get New York Anything on her birthday.

New York gave me this to give to you: A recommendation for possibly the nicest free bathroom in the city now that the Plaza is turning into condos.

Ladies and gentlemen I give you...The Four Seasons.

I'm not sure how I've lived here 18 years and not been there before. I never even realized that's what that facade was on 57th street between Park and Madison. Turns out it's the Four Seasons Hotel with the Four Seasons Spa deep in the basement.

I went there today to pick up a gift that my boss had purchased. He let me in on this errand early this morning. So let's review my outfit:

Pants: Target
Shirt: Target
Shoes: Aerosoles
Socks: None
Makeup: None
Hair: Humidified

Fortunately the Four Seasons is old school, like Tiffany's. It doesn't matter what you're wearing or how out of place you may think you look you will get good, pleasant service.

There's no doorman at the....

Yeah, and this is where the celebration of the blogoversary really begins.

I finished this great post, I was in the middle of adding hip, edgy, funny links to everything I could think to make a link, it was great, no really, you would have loved it.

"The application 'Safari' has unexpectedly quit"

Completely irretrievable. The "Recover Post" button on Blogger is no help with that.

Right here is where I agree wholeheartedly with all my Mac friends. Oh god yes, I'm so glad that I started using Safari and cut Internet Explorer out of my life. Safari is endlessly better with its wide margins and no lists to go back with and the whole QUITTING IN THE MIDDLE OF MY BLOGOVERSARY POST! Yup, so much better than the evil inventions of Mr. Gates and his winged monkeys.

I'm not re-creating the post. It's not meant to be. It's just one of those things that says, "Yup, this is what we're celebrating, you know, along with the good stuff. How do you like me now?"

I still like it. I like blogging and I'm hoping that people are starting to like me. Yeah, it's been a year and I've probably provided you with 2 good belly laughs, one solidly serious post and a little bit of sex. It's a start. Stick around, you really never know what I'm going to do next.

Coming up we'll get very funny with questions about catered food in the Berkshires and then we'll bring it down and get serious about people realizing that this is my space and I get to write what's relevant to me even if it makes them uncomfortable.

I hope you'll join us.

    Happy Anniversary!!

    Sorry about the whole Mac-crashing thing.

    Bully for you, standing up for your right to write whatever you feel! This is YOUR space; we're just along for the ride and are welcomed to get off any time we choose.

    I'm looking forward to what's coming next!
