1. Excitement. You’ve got supplies! You’ve got wine! You’ve got enough kettle corn to last for a year! You’re finally going to watch all five seasons of “Breaking Bad” and people will stop making fun of you for never having seen it. You are pumped and ready to be a shut in for days, weeks if necessary! Bring it on!!

2. Boredom. You’ve seen four episodes of “Breaking Bad” and it occurs to you that you’ve never watched this much TV in one stretch, except for that one time that you had the flu for a week and you watched all six seasons of “Sex and the City” and then called your dad crying, begging for chicken noodle soup. You start to yawn. Like BIG yawns. Endless yawns. You wander from room to room. Bathroom. Water. Wine. Kettle corn. You turn on another episode of “Breaking Bad.” You can’t do it. Keep reading »

October 30: What Are We Wearing Today? Hurricane Sandy Edition

Halleloo! New York City is still a hot mess, with power outages and flooding affecting millions of people. Amelia is still without power — send positive thoughts to her and Lucca. But the show must go on and that’s why we’re doing What Are We Wearing Today?: Hurricane Sandy Edition. We are all working from home for the foreseeable future,  which means we’re dressing a little more casually. Just how casual? Wait until you see Ami’s fuzzy socks, y’all.

I was kind of bowled over to hear that not just one but TWO of my close friends had planned first dates during Hurricane Sandy. WHAT? I say this as a person who HATES staying inside my apartment for too long, but seriously, I don’t care how amazing the guy was, I wouldn’t have stepped outside during the storm for any reason whatsoever. OK, maybe for a new bottle of wine at the liquor store across the street. Maybe.

First dates are anxiety-provoking enough without worrying about whether or not you’ll get struck dead by a wayward tree branch or drowned in a storm-surge flood. Forget about awkward conversation, life-threatening weather conditions really up the ante. I mean, what do you even plan to do during a Hurricane date-wise? Drink at your apartment? If you dare to venture out do you wear a wet suit? But then again, it could be incredibly romantic. Keep reading »

As you might have heard, Hurricane Sandy was absolutely brutal as it plowed through the New York City area. It left hundreds of thousands (maybe millions at this point) of people without power. Amelia is one of those affected. She’s fine, reading by candlelight, I presume, with Lucca at her feet, eating non-perishables. Jessica, Julie, Winona and I will be doing our best to keep things afloat in her absence.

I thought I would be drinking wine and watching Netflix last night, but with everything that was going on, I was way too anxious and shaken up to relax. Below, a round up of some of what went down here. I will keep updating it as much as I can. Please let us know about what’s going on in your neck of the woods in the comments. We hope everyone is safe and sound. Update: After the jump, notes from Mayor Bloomberg’s press conference this morning. Keep reading »

If you’re in the path of Hurricane Sandy and are hunkering down at home, you’re going to need some tunes. I’ve put together this handy Hurricane playlist, filled with songs about, duh, hurricanes and rain. This is not to make light of a serious situation, of course, but we can at least add some background music as we all cross our fingers that the power doesn’t go out, our windows don’t break, and the shit is over soon. Take a listen, after the jump! Keep reading »

A Note On Hurricane Sandy

Good morning, Frisky readers! As some of you probably know, the vast majority of The Frisky staff works out of New York City. Because of Hurricane Sandy — which is battering the East Coast as I type this — the subway system has been shut down and we are working from home. In the event that the power goes out, which the local news is insisting is a distinct possibility (despite what Lindsay Lohan might say), you might see our post levels go down. (I don’t know about Jess, Julie, and Ami, but the rest of my laptop battery life will go towards watching “Magic Mike” again, mmkay?) To those of you also in Sandy’s path, stay safe! Feel free to use the comments section on this post as an open thread about the hurricane.
