I had another drink last night. Two drinks in one week after five years of not drinking, I’m practically on a bender. This drink was a Gimlet at a Lebanese restaurant in the Junction called Phoenecia. My instructions were “the more herbaceous the better.” They have a herb-infused gin they make themselves, fresh limes, in a tumbler with ice instead of a martini glass kept it the perfect temperature. They also have great food. I had a steak last night and one of their pizzas the time before.the You all should go, but make it so I can still get in at least on a weekday. Back to the drinking. I also had almost an entire glass of Kirkland prosecco, but abandoned it. I will probably stick to gimlets for now. I can practice making them myself at home.
Do you use Spotify? I have been playing around with it because I was dissatisfied with the native Apple podcast application. Then they split it up and it may be better… But before the change, I started using Spotify, creating music playlists, and whatnot. I created a very large 80s mix you may like:

I have a few others that I am working on and will post them as they are completed.
This week, I was on the treadmill next to a woman that was walking like she was late to an appointment: hands above elbows and lots of swinging. Meanwhile, she was probably thinking “this guy is acting like he is on the longest runway ever.”
Other gym observations: A woman wearing Uggs on the treadmill. I guess she had to get her shuffles in.

Sixty-six years ago today the film "It Should Happen To You" premiered. It really has everything you could ever want in a film: Judy Holliday, Jack Lemmon and George Cukor. As far as I know, those three didn't ever make a bad movie on their own, so their combined forces makes magic. I have said it before and I will exclaim it again: Judy Holliday Is EVERYTHING! Do yourself a favor and watch It Should Happen To You soon. You deserve it. #GladysGlover

Today is Cary Grant's 116th birthday. It is no secret I love Cary Grant. I long to have a mid-century mid-atlantic accent, to have effortless style, and to have a wit as sharp as my wardrobe. He is what everything a woman wants to have and everything a man wants to be. Some of my favorite Cary Grant movies are "The Awful Truth", "Bringing up Baby", "Holiday", "His Girl Friday", "The Philadelphia Story", "Arsenic and Old Lace", "Notorious", "The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer", "Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House", "People Will Talk", "To Catch a Thief", "Houseboat", "North by Northwest", "That Touch of Mink", "Charade", and "Father Goose". I know, that is a long list and contains most of his movies, I said I love him. The world is a better place because he was in it and still feels the loss that he has left. #CaryGrant
This week, I liked these videos on YouTube:
