71. You can’t buy taste. 72. I know why people love Brooklyn. I really do get it. But don’t try to convince me that borough is better than Manhattan. Can’t it just be better for you? 73. I’m a total comfort snob. And when I’m uncomfortable, I’m cranky. 74. I work to live, not the other way around. 75. Much to Erin’s chagrin, I’m terrible at poker. 76. I always plan to go to yoga. 77. My local bar is Employees Only. Sometimes I wear flip-flops, sometimes I wear feathers. 78. I love living in a city of walkers, and I consider it my exercise and civic participation to put my heels to the pavement…whenever I’m not running so late I have to take a cab. 79. I love the theatre. And there’s no better show in town than the Waverly Inn. 80. Fruit is not dessert. 81. My Tribe would attest, I’m a terrific listener and fiercely loyal to my friends.
82. “Casablanca.” Love. “Goonies.” Love even more. 83. I own, and wear, a white vintage mink coat, and I’m not sorry. 84. I also own, and wear, a Buffalo Bills “Starters” jacket (red, blue, huge logo, very puffy) from the 1990’s. Go Bills! 85. “Dark and Stormy” is a choice cocktail, but a bad choice in boyfriends. 86. I don’t love Chinese food. All other Asian cuisine yes, but dim sum doesn’t do it for me. 87. Great conversation is the best aphrodisiac… 88. …oysters are a close second. 89. I’m a “Sex and the City” fan, but I’m no Carrie Bradshaw. 90. Just because you grow up somewhere cold doesn’t mean you feel less cold, or “can handle it” when it’s fucking freezing outside. 91. I never leave a mess in my apartment. My life is sometimes wild, but I have to come home to order. 92. I was not a cheerleader in high school. Think: drama geek, community club, honor’s society, varsity field hockey starting center. 93. Let’s be honest, I’m not a great driver. I get lost five blocks away from the house I grew up in. It annoys my brother, who thinks I do it for attention. But I don’t. I do a lot of other things for attention. 94. Men and women are not equal; they are equally esteemed. 95. Dry sherry is a wonder to me. Perfect as an aperitif, perfect as a digestif, and somehow the cheapest spirit on any drink menu! 96. I almost always add more salt. 97. Pot is good. All-Clad pots, better. 98. Roma over Paris. Positano over Cannes. Experience over things… 99. …but if you wanna buy me a pair of Christian Louboutin’s, I welcome the experience. 100. Seasonal always. Organic preferable. Local if at all possible. 101. I know it’s nuts, but I don’t like ice cream.
