For Sale

Yes please! Just around the corner from SLP was this vacant house for sale. Always the daydreamer, my curiousity got the better of me and I looked it up to get the inside scoop. It's a three bedroom, three bath that's pretty roomy, considering how tiny it looks from the outside. I know that real estate in Dublin is astronomical and borders on the insane, so I wasn't too shocked to find that it's going for €425,000. That's a little more than $530k. At least it's way cheaper than a studio apartment in Manhattan!

Dick and Orson

There's nothing like a good interview and this one from Dick Cavett with Orson Welles was outstanding. Thank goodness for YouTube and all those that upload and preserve these fab shows to keep me busy during my workday!

Saturday in Wayne, PA

This past Saturday I met up with my brother Wayne to catch Murder on the Orient Express at the Anthony Wayne Theatre. To sum up in one word my opinion of said film, disappointment. But none of that matters because after the show Wayne and I wandered around this adorable and charming town, peering in windows at fabulous displays and browsing in the local book shop. 

Added bonus was seeing Isabella for dinner!

New One Due in May!

Ashlee and Sean are expecting! The sex is still unknown, but Ash still likes Benjamin for a boy. I recommended Eric for the middle name as it is Sean's middle name as well. For a girl, Ashlee was unsure, so I came up with a list and the top runners are Reagan and Ariella. Scarlet held fast in third place. I like Reagan Ariella, personally, but time will tell!

Maria at The Fillmore

Last night I picked up Kayla and we headed to The Fillmore in Fishtown to see Maria Bamford! Maria was a hoot, but getting any amount of time with Kay is better than pretty much anything else in the world. We overdid it with the selfies, but hey, that's the thing to do nowadays.
