How to Watch House of Cards

If you watch House of Cards, you’ll understand.  And if you live with your parents, you’ll definitely understand.  If you do both (watch House of Cards AND live with your parents) well, God help you.  It’s enough to make you want to stab yourself in the eye with a fork. To my mother’s credit, I…

My Post New Years Confession

I have a terrible confession to make.  Yesterday, despite having spent hours on a beautiful new “2014 Time Management” spreadsheet, I spent the day in pajamas.  The entire day.  As in I woke up, rolled out of bed, brushed my teeth, brushed my teeth again and rolled back into bed approximately 16 hours later.  I…

Why Angry People Should Stick to Home Exercise

“You f*cking b*tch!” The blond chick with the chunky red highlights ignores me, so I add a curt “I hate you!” under my breath. Of course, she doesn’t respond to this either.  Why?  Well, she can’t hear me.  She’s on TV, and even though I’ve already done the “last eight” of my bun-toning squats, she…

A Not-So-Happily-Ever-After Ending

It’s over.  The end.  Finito.  I don’t quite know what to do with myself now.  It’s officially summer— I should be going to the beach or working on my tan or scouting out my next bar-of-choice for Wednesday’s Center City Sips Happy Hour (I take Center City Sips very seriously)— but there’s a huge void…

Life Lessons from a FASHION Director?

Ladies and gentleman, I have an announcement to make.  Three actually.  The first is that I spent Memorial Day at my parents’ place in The-Middle-of-Nowhere (Hoopers Island, MD) and am still wading through the comments on Saturday’s post; suffice it to say, the vast majority have left me speechless (and for a variety of reasons).…

Four Things One Should NOT Do Whilst Single

1) Listen to Train.  Marry Me is going to make me run myself off the road one of these days.  (You should probably stop letting me borrow your car, Mom.) 2) Watch three back-to-back episodes of Wedded to Perfection, followed by Whose Wedding is it Anyway? and finally an entire season of Say ‘Yes’ to…

Driving in Circles

You’re going to have to accept my apologies for today’s post.  It was going to be all about my triumphant return to Match.com (which, in truth, hasn’t been so triumphant after all) but then my brother came to visit and I was forced to spend the majority of my evening driving around in circles behind…

Christmas Day at Casa Richter

About halfway into our appetizers at Ikko Hibachi Restaurant on Christmas Day, my grandmother asks, “So Katrina, do you have any special men in your life?”  Because it’s Christmas, I decide to spare her the truth; she nearly had a heart attack three Easters ago when I informed her I was dating a Jew. The…
