This post was inspired by Daners, who was inspired by Ali-ers.  Sorry I don’t have the links to the original posts, they were done a while back and I’m lazy.

So without further ado, here’s a peek into Chez Rizzuto.  As you know, I recently moved.  For the sake of comparison, here’s my old neighborhood:

What was I thinking?

I told you guys a couple of months back that I quit my job, bought a house upstate and was downsizing my life.  Well, after a few home buying-related hitches I’m finally outta here.  The good news is that, as predicted, they haven’t found a replacement for me at work yet.  This means that I’ll still be working for them indefinitely, although I’ll be working remotely and in my pajamas.  And I’ll be getting paid.  Yay for me.  The bad news is that I’m leaving NYC.

Thanks for asking.

My mother called me at work this morning. My mother is the most hysterical person on the face of the earth. She and my dad live in Texas these days.

You guys are all smart and resourceful, right?  HELP! 

The pics look like it might be Central Park.  Too bad Central Park is about a million acres.
