I'm Still Here!
Hey fellow Sparkers!
After more than a couple years, I've dusted off my old SP page and gave this a whirl this morning. I've been hanging within a decent range weight-wise, but ultimately that number has been creeping steadily higher. T... Read more
A Stretchy Home Stretch
Hi SP gang! Hope you're well and moving and warm! Cold enough for ya?
Since I last checked in, rest assured that my silence in these parts didn't mean I wasn't active and keeping at it. In fact, I'm pleased to report that even accounting... Read more
Rollin', rollin' ...
Long time, no blog! Don't worry; no news is good news. (This time, anyway.)
Summer came and went, and I gotta say it was pretty swell! In June, I went to London for the first time, for a week - and had a blast. Walked a lot (seriously a... Read more
Down to the Roots
I had a massive toothache on Monday, then it subsided yesterday, and I went to the dentist this morning. The worst kind of surprise awaited me: a root canal!
Several hundred dollars later, with a numb face and sad spirit (I do have to retu... Read more
Alive and Kickin'
Well hello there! Just a quick note to say that I'm still around - albeit infrequently - and well, I let myself go (and let myself down) a bit in my absence. As work and life got busier and more stressful at times, my resolve to "stick with it... Read more
Not Even a Peep
Hey gang - long time, no post, I know! I've been doing OK, though consistency re: exercise has not been great. That said, I'm happy to say that I've been making good food choices when they've come up, so I think the small steps have prevented ... Read more
Cold As Ice
Reading friends' blogs around here on SP and elsewhere, you'd think it was snowing or something! :-)
Actually, yes, in NYC it has snowed, and how! It sort of like Christmas to wake up, dreading the commute to work, and to read my email th... Read more
Too Trenta Much?
I've been hearing rumblings 'round the interwebs about a new size that Starbucks will soon offer, the Trenta - which is 325 mL larger than their current largest size, the Venti.
I normally am not one to post on specific food items, as I wil... Read more
Back At It
Hey gang - just a li'l note to say that I'm still around, and the New Year gave me a good kick in the rear to keep up progress I made last year on the health / weight front.
This past fall - and especially around the holidays - were parti... Read more
Good Time Charley
Hi gang! Been a while, no?
Just a li'l hello to say that I'm still alive, around, and kicking. I worked out tonight for the first time in eons, and did I feel it. Still, I'm glad that I made the time to go to the gym, as I organically ha... Read more
Hi friends! With August drawing to a close, and with students returning to campus this weekend, it dawned on me that my days of summer excitement are quickly drawing to a close. So my friend K. and I decided a few days ago to make Saturday our... Read more
Onward + Upward!
Hey pals - just checking in to say hello! I had one show/gig to work backstage, after another, so I have a little bit of breathing room now that they're all finished.
While working my nights/weekends schedule, I found that I have very litt... Read more
Hi folks! Happy Summer! I've just recently finished up the job/show I was working on, and so it's taken me a little while to decompress and get back in the game.
The show I assisted, a new play called "Restoration" at New York Theatre W... Read more
A Breather & Check-in
Hello there! A quick late-night greeting and update on things that are going on in my neck of the woods.
I've been working at a feverish pace this past week or so on the play that's opening in a couple weeks. We started preview performanc... Read more
Standstill Scale + Update
Hey gang! Just wanted to say a quick hullo . . .
Change is in the wind, as I start work this week on a short-term theatre job as a stage manager, which I haven't done in a little while. I'll be working backstage on a show at New York The... Read more
