Rescuing People

Oh, I know. Some of you wonderful kids are giving me That Look, feeling unloved, rolling your eyes, thinking, “Whatever, Carlota, like I don’t even care, I was just reading your blog as a favor, gawd! Like TMZ is where I get all my news anyway!” Aww, baby don’t be like that, you know I…

The Joys of LinkedIn

I am indeed on LinkedIn, which is both good and bad. It’s good for my business, but it’s frequently horrific because the evil elves of LinkedIn will, in their desire to be helpful, suggest I reconnect with former boyfriends who wouldn’t speak to me if they were under the wheels of my car driving over…

Yesterday we experienced the Oscars. Suddenly Ben Affleck is a talented thespian…instead of the co-star of a little debacle film entitled…Gigli (memories…light the corners of my mind!), but anyhoo, life demands we move forward and here it is Monday again. I personally love what I do, and since I am self-employed my boss is…

F**k Hurricane Sandy, You Still Need a Job

You’re right: I am a little cranky. Not because I’m worried about Queens getting destroyed in Sandy’s maw–honestly, I can’t assume that as a single girl hurricane that she’d want all the related ish of the outer boroughs in her life–but I could do without the media whipping the population into a frenzy of fear…

Since I’ve become serious about using my business Facebook page (just writing those three words makes me automatically feel like I’m a senior citizen…and then I start thinking about what a useful magazine AARP puts out… and then I get really cranky and need to go date some 25 year old boy and prove I…

Russian Lessons

Maybe I’m writing this today for all the talented procasturbators out there who still have plenty of time, plenty of time, come on, don’t freak out, baby, relax, before the IRS’s midnight deadline and who’d therefore like something fun to read in the meantime…but last night I was thinking about our tendency as a species…

First World Problems

Just this morning, I had an exchange over email which truly epitomizes the phrase “first world problems.” In a nutshell, I “un-friended” (Why do I feel like I’m 13 all over again, for just typing these words?) a former work acquaintance, with whom I barely shared anything any longer. Once he found out…the wrath erupted.…

Facebook = business

Like most of you, I primarily love Facebook as a way to waste time. Well, waste time and look at the photos of people’s boy/girl-friend and wonder how that happened. ( I know, I know: meow meow meow…meow!) But, and I swear this is true: Facebook is also amazing for business. It feels weird to even…

The secret is that there is no secret

So I’ve been awake since oh, 4:30am, my brain working feverishly, and I’m about to go running and start my awesome day…gross, I know. Some of you just want to take me on your knee and…spank me. (Ha!) People who enjoy their lives are so irritating, right? Don’t worry: my to-do list just got longer as…
