I did this once. I was super shy and decided I would “fake it til you make it” and be more talkative. And... it worked, I ended up being permanently stuck as the loud one. Oops.
that sounds disgusting and I am almost ready to try it...
Ugh I have one of those summer colds that strips you of your will to live. Any favorite home remedies? Up to and including magical spells which will empty my sinuses?
I did my first big solo trip to London last year and really loved it! (But I had never been before -- if you’ve already been, ignore me!)
A family member who I’m super close with had a baby a couple of weeks ago and he is the best little smush! It’s so weird seeing her face on a tiny baby but I’m totally smitten with him. That’s my baby story!
Anna, I have been a HUGE fan of your long form reporting for years now and I just want to tell you how pumped I am about this book. Congrats! Can’t wait to read it.
I once went to Le Bernadin. Work thing. Hands down the fanciest meal I’ve ever had. I was sure the waiters could smell that I didn’t belong there. It was fantastic.
I got a lot better at dining alone after doing London solo for a week this past summer. Kindle definitely helps! Though I was also often on my phone mapping out my next stop since I suck at itineraries...

He has such a good little face!!!
I need you all to know that it’s snowing in New York and I’m in a tropical paradise in Puerto Rico for a long weekend by myself because #treatyoself. Splurged in a great hotel, got upgraded at check-in, watched sunset on the beach with a mojito, currently on a date with myself at a fancy restaurant. Once you get…
omg typical New Yorker egocentrism, I read it as New York! I hope (old) York is lovely!
There are a bunch of us NYC Jezzies - we’re here if you need any help planning!
I need you to know that I read and starred this while on the F train.
Mine is Bacardi 151, after a particularly memorable celebration of my 18th birthday. Ughh. (I am now 30 and I have not touched it ever again in the ensuing dozen years)
I live in a high-rise and I leave that shit open, even in one room where I know my neighbors can see me. Shrug.
Was it a transformative moment for anyone else when Oreos got certified kosher? No, just me? I was in middle school and wanted to have a party where I burned every single box of Hydrox...
I’m a serious packrat/clutterbug and I recently spent a few days clearing off surfaces and taking several trashbags out of my house. It really helped me to be absolutely ruthless - if it was something I hadn’t seen/used/read in however long, it went out, no dithering.
Actually, you’re right! This was under an anti-SLAPP statute where fees are awarded as a matter of course. I retract my earlier statement.
I think this was a defamation suit?
