I think Roz Chast’s New York Cartoon sums it up best. Unlike the end of the year which flew by faster than an African swallow (bonus point to anyone who got to Monty Python reference), January took FOUR-EVAH to finish. This isn’t to say that it was a bad month. In fact, minus the week I was out due to the Winter Plague (aka the flu), this month has been pretty awesome. I started off the New Year with my favorite cousins. There may or may not have been some dancing to 90s youtube videos. Back in Brooklyn, G and I made it to two epic concerts- The Killers and Above & Beyond. We tried Shiso (healthy Japanese syrup) for the first time at a shiso cocktail tasting ( less healthy but still very delicious.) And we took full advantage of our MoviePass card- by seeing Jumanji, I, Tonya and Molly’s Game. And yes, don’t worry, I still managed a full work load with two work trips. You see what I mean- it was a LONG month. I had all this fun and was still a productive human. Anyways, I hope everyone had a wonderful start to the New Year. Here’s hoping that February is just as fun…if not more.
