Pin ItToday was one of those days: 10 hours of work; literally running several blocks, two trains, and up a few flights of stairs to an audition. Then I darted as fast as I could after work to Costco to pick up my contact lenses before they closed. On the train ride home all I […]
The other night I became Cruella Deville. The final minutes of my Clarke Kent job began to tick away and the pangs of hunger hit. So, I went into my faithful “monster bag” for relief. For the first time in forever there was NOTHING. No nuts. No soy milk. No fruit. No chips. Not even any candy that the loving guy at security gives me each morning. NOTHING.

Or if you are anything like I use to be it, you eat it several times a day.
