Tell tale signs

Last night, I’m PHL to DEN and I’m seeing the normal Denver-bound sights (sadly, no B Dawg this time). Denver-bound “looks” go something like this: white women with dreadlocks (you know, the hair is so long and dirty it just starts clinging to itself and forms frizzy dreadlocks); white men wearing climbing gear with crampons ...

Putting Up with It

Ever feel like you fell in a rabbit hole? You know, that feeling where you’re the odd one out…where everything around you doesn’t make any sense but no one else seems to notice? Or, maybe you’re stuck asking yourself David Byrne’s inimitable question, “How did I get here?" Today I was at day two of an ...

Lost and Found

A few weeks back I had a day trip to New York (that’s TRE to NYP) and I left my umbrella on the train. Not just any umbrella. My Burberry umbrella. I bought this baby back when Burberry umbrellas were “only” $120 and I’ve carried it to some fine locales. It escorted me to Burgundy ...

Plain Lessons

I was recently at lunch with a friend who asked what life lessons I’ve learned. Here we go. I’m supposed to have some big time lessons I’ve learned the hard way. You know, the type where now that I’m older and wiser, I can talk about them and sound all reflective and sage. Sure I’ve got ...

A Leading Lady

Today I took the Jenkintown local downtown to enjoy a trip down Memory Lane with my first “real” boss, one who hired me straight out of college and taught me a myriad of lessons, the most important of which had to do with leadership. That sounds kinda heavy and anyone who knew us back then wouldn’t ...

TL;DR

Tommy checked in today with a provocative email that basically said, “Check out Preqin’s report on high-level SWFs.” Hmmm. That seems a little odd. Why is the financial database that reports on alternative asset classes writing about senior level Single White Females? Are more of them rising to the top of hedge fund management? Are ...

Why I Don’t Carry the Chair

So I had this little dialogue last weekend with some girlfriends where, bottom line, they think I’m some prima donna because my 6’ 1 inch husband and 6’ son carry my beach chair onto the beach. Uh, that’s high maintenance? I’ve met high maintenance and that’s not it. High maintenance doesn’t work. She doesn’t clean. She ...

Arthur vs. Home Depot

If you read my blog, you know where I am this weekend. Seaside. July 4th means fireworks, sand, surf, and sun. And bad beach drivers. Oh, and a lot of Bruce Springsteen blaring “Born in the USA.” Often it’s played during the fireworks or just by a bunch of people tooling around in their tricked-up ...
