Fighting the Citibike salmon in NYC

So for the past several years I’ve been happily using Citibike, but this year I’ve twice encountered the most frustrating phenomenon, and I fear it’s just going to get worse as the weather gets better. [more inside]

Accomplice NY or Sleep No More?

I'm in NYC today and can pick one of these immersive experiences to go to tonight. SNM sounds amazing but some reviews say it's crowded and not very well organized. Accomplice sounds like a lot of fun, although I prefer the 'dark' aesthetic of SNM. Ultimately, I just want a fun, unforgettable, immersive, experience where I'm not just being herded around following a bunch of actors. Which one have you preferred and why? Thank you!

Discipline when the novelty wears off

When I do yoga or run or meditate after a long time away, I’m so good! I’m diligent with my form and stay focused. But when I try to make them regular parts of my routine, I get so sloppy. I let my mind wander and cheat the clock. I suspect this is partially because I can sense the diminishing marginal return, but I intellectually value long-lived habits and want to make this work. Have you successfully fought this? How do you make sessions 2, 5, or 20 almost as good as session 1?

Things that are better with kids

Come September my husband and I will be transitioning from our little two-person family to three (fingers crossed, of course)! We've spent some time thinking about things we want to do before the kid arrives, and will be going on a last holiday for just the two of us. But we also want to think about the reverse - what are experiences or things that are better with a kid, or that can only be had if you have a kid? [more inside]

Plaster face casting in Toronto?

I've been fascinated by the idea of having my face and/or hands cast in plaster lately, but my own attempts have not been very successful. Where in the Toronto area could I have this done? And how much should I expect to pay? Is plaster the best material or should I consider something less breakable? The fine detail is important to me, but so is durability.

Help me kayak to work in Brooklyn!

I would like to kayak to work, in Brooklyn, this summer. I live near the Gowanus Canal, and work in DUMBO, so my proposed route would cling to the Brooklyn side of the East River, but I wouldn't have to cross it. I'm interested in hearing from folks who have spent some time exploring the waterways of New York City in human-powered watercrafts. [more inside]

Pokemon Go: what is this Seel/Dewgong hybrid evolution?

A few weeks ago I evolved a Seel (#86), without knowing what it would become. It ended up evolving into a new Pokemom (#87) but had the exact same name. Today I hatched a new Pokemom called a Dewgong, which looks just like the evolved Seel and is also #87. I can't find any evidence of this Seel->Seel hybrid. What's the deal with the second Seel?

Art supplies for miniature artists

Our beloved neighbors were just hit with the double whammy of welcoming a new baby into the world and getting diagnosed with cancer. In addition to the new kiddo, they have two other kids, ages 3 and 6. I would like to get them some fun art supplies so they get a little attention and can have some fun (and maybe even stay occupied and out of mom and dad's hair for a minute). Problem is I'm a little clueless about what would be fun or appropriate for kids of that age. [more inside]

Camping on a budget

I want to do some car camping in May/June and currently I have no equipment except for a sleeping bag. How can I do this on a pretty strict budget? I've been camping many times before and I don't need a lot of creature comforts. I will most likely be traveling alone. Temperatures will likely range from 50-80 F, occasional rain/T-storms expected.

Did you read that book? Well, no...

I have a very difficult time following through on cultural recommendations from others, even when I want to. I'm sure it is related to control issues, which I am working on in therapy. In the meantime, how do I get over the hump here? [more inside]
