Monday, Bloody Monday

I totally had a “Romy and Michele” moment on the way home from work tonight.

No, I didn’t claim to invent Post-Its.

Nor did I perform a mesmerizing dance to “Time After Time.”

I did, however, unknowingly cut my foot and then my shoe filled up with blood. No, really.

I realized it as my train approached — where I managed to get a seat, despite my pathetic hobbling. The seat turned out to be a front-row pass for a homeless man’s keyboard playing and “I’m Broke, It Ain’t No Joke” serenade.

Safe to say, this girl needs a drink. And a Band-Aid.

Do you have some sort of business woman special?

WO: Weekly Obsessions

Now that I’m a big-time city girl (no, really), I must share the apps I’ve recently downloaded and learned to love. Whether in need of dinner delivery or photo finessing, these free apps are worthy of the prestigious WO nod.

  1. Seamless: Hungry, but don’t feel like leaving the apartment? Too tired to even speak to another human being?  Then, Seamless is for you: Order from local restaurants with just a few clicks, and enjoy a new food find faster than you can say “Forever lazy.”
  2. EmbarkNYC: Master mass transit and everyday travel in Manhattan (and outlying boroughs) with the help of this easy-to-use app. I prefer it to HopStop, which requires Wi-Fi, AKA it won’t work when you’re underground.
  3. Pic Stitch: I’ve used another photo app for a while and ignored the growing Pic Stitch trend. Silly me, I didn’t realize the craze was merited with simple navigation and special features. I’m now a convert.
  4. This Quiz: OK, so it’s not an app. But I had to mention Tres Sugar’s on-point quiz to determine quotes from “Girls” and “Sex and the City.” The former returns to HBO this Sunday for season 2 and the latter is the definitive single-in-NYC series.

Stay tuned for more frequent updates, as we finally get Internet in the apartment this weekend! The joys of 21st Century living.
