  2. I believe it! And I do believe that when I set foot on British soil I will have belonged there all my life. (I love starting my morning with a little Mrs. Rigoloso. I thought about you and J yesterday when James pulled his curtain out of the wall. ;)

  3. Good for you. It always sounded so snoody to me when people said you had to live there x years to be a New Yorker.

    Never start wearing all black, Molly!

  8. I have a friend who is a transplant New Yorker and we always say there's "Brenda" and "New York Brenda", who's basically a B who pushes people in crowds and yells.

    Is there a "New York Molly"?

good communication is as stimulating as black coffee,

and just as hard to sleep after.
