Insomniacal Reflections

During a recent deep and personal conversation with my friend Courtney B. Vance, I had a great idea for a maternity t-shirt. I'd like to share it with you all. If you want one for your special someone, let me know. We could work something out...

Real cases, real litigants. Here, in our forum: The People's Court.

Well, today is my first day working at The People's Court. Let's hope this "internship" isn't an elaborate ploy to get me in the studio, just to find out that my freshman year roommate is sueing me for that sock I accidentally stole. It was stuck to the bottom of my rug! I promise! I don't even have its mate!

Either way, I'm very excited. All of the people seem laid back but very efficient and productive. I was told that when I don't have many things to do, I can work on a special People's Court-related project. I've been thinking about what I might want to do, but if anyone has any ideas let me know! I want to take advantage of my time there.

Broome 4 Boobs!

Dear lovely Blog Readers,

It's a loving member of your community, dropping a line to let you know that I'm attempting to do the NYC Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in October. I'm walking with my team, "Broome For Boobs" (which includes 3 other students and a professor who all live at the NYU Residential College @ Broome Street). Together we are going to raise $10,000!

And, guess what? I'M MORE THAN HALFWAY TO MY GOAL. I have vowed to raise $1800 and I am currently at $1200. All summer I have been doing bake sales in Washington Square Park, writing letters, putting out change jars, hosting events, etc. I've never done anything like this before, so I'm getting rather excited. PLUS, MY PARENTS DON'T THINK I CAN DO IT! Seriously, help me prove them wrong! If you or anyone you know would like to donate, please visit my personal page at: and DO THE DEED. Please, it means the world to me...and boobies.

Thanks so much,

P.S. I am also selling "HELLO MY NAME IS" stickers to put on the back of my Walker T-shirt. If you'd like to put the name of a loved one, a survivor, draw a picture, write a favorite quote on one, let me know! They're only $5. Follow the above link to donate then leave a comment with what you want written, or just e-mail me if I know you and you want to write it yourself!

Pictures with Large Things Part 2

I know you've all been waiting for it, and the time is finally here. After getting through the first week of my last semester, I finally have a free insomniac minute to post the rest of my Pictures with Large Statues. And you'll see it's been WELL worth the wait. I've also thrown in a few snapshots of the coolest playground I have ever laid my childlike and evergreen eyes on. It had Pirates, Vikings, Dragons, big slides, little slides, medium slides, rock walls - everything you could ever desire playing on or around as a youngin'. Notice that my default stance (one arm up leaning on something with the same side leg elevated or crossed over the other) is very interesting mix of a Tiger Beat Boyband photo shoot, a creepy dude you wouldn't want hitting on you in a bar, and the very charismatic Captain Morgan. I try, folks, I try.
