Pass the Soapbox, Please

So, if you were given five minutes in front of a crowd to say anything—“I gave her my heart, and she gave me a pen,” Lloyd Dobler, Say Anything (sorry, but who can resist quoting that movie?)—what would you say? I, for one, would have several potential topics to wax poetic on: the latest season…

The Balanced Guy: On Dirt

More than likely, you’ve got antibacterial soap, antibacterial all-purpose cleaners, antibacterial hand sanitizers, and who-knows-what-else anti-germ around your house. Heck, I even received a pair of antimicrobial socks for Christmas this year. That’s all well and good, however, I’ve believed for years that this stuff is simply not healthy. Now, I’m not a doctor or…

Princeton: 1; NYC McSmugs: O

When I worked in New York City for a hoity-toity magazine publishing company, one of the things that used to make me positively riotous was when one of my lower Manhattan–dwelling co-workers would make a comment about life in “Princeton” or “the place that might as well be the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard in the…

Your Weekly Goodies:: PScoop Style

It’s Tuesday….Monday was a blur that felt like Wednesday.  And it’s raining.  I thought I hated snow….apparently I had forgotten about the whole winter rain phenomenon.  Here are a few bits to tide you over for the week.  Our plans include: hitting the gym (PHROG), making soup, checking out the event at LuxabyBaby & Child,…

Fashion Forward for a Cause

To paraphrase Bill Nighy’s character, the rowdy pop star Billy Mack, in one of my all-time favorite movies, Love Actually: “Fashion is all around us.” (Well, the actual line is “Christmas is all around us,” but that season is so 2009… ) Indeed, the world is a veritable wonderland of style these days: Last week,…

The P.S. Top Five: Weekend Edition

I apologize in advance to the men: The P.S. Top Five is decidedly girly this time around (with the exception of number four, so guys, you’ll have to keep reading to find out why). But with all of this very burly snow everywhere I turn, I find myself longing for the more delicate, precious days…

The Balanced Guy: On Getting Involved

If you’ve never been actively involved in your community, there is no better time than now, when our communities really need us the most. Being an active participant in the town I live in is something I only learned to do as an adult through my brother-in-law and his family (long-time residents and small-business owners…

Founder’s Foible

So, this is where I admit that not only do I watch The Bachelor, but also it’s the only show I watch religiously.  Yes, I am fully aware that precious hours of my life are passing before my eyes that I will never get back. Pathetic, I know, but it’s cheaper than medication. My other…
