The Week In Links: Fat Thursday, Being Fat

Mardi Gras Cupcake Meetup, originally uploaded by nichellest.

The reason I do “the week in links” is because I barely remember what happened yesterday let alone a week ago.

Tuesday: Drinks with Mixing Bowl editor Heather and Ripple 6’s Katie.

Wednesday: Bookkeeping presentation at New Work City.

Thursday: Pre-Mardi Gras Cupcake Meetup at Jimmys No 43.

Friday: sniffling, sneezing, and got the bridesmaid’s sandals delivered from Macys.

Saturday: sniffling, coughing but also joined Weight Watcher’s Online (for my sister’s wedding).

Sunday: blowing my nose, sniffling, and watched the Oscars at Comix.

Best compliment I got this week: A nice young lady at the cupcake meetup asked me if the pink shirt I wore was American Apparel.  I told her I am too fat for American Apparel, but thanks!

The Week In Links (Social Media, Sharon Jones, Shorty Awards)

Last week was Social Media Week and the parties were flowing.

I went to the Shorty Awards, met MC Hammer and drank too many fail whales.

Friday I went to the New York screening of Nerdcore Rising at the 92nd Y Tribeca which was directed and produced by the wonderful Negin Farsad. She is definitely on my list of “people I know who should be famous”.

Saturday was Valentine’s Day, and the guy and I went to see Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings at the Nokia Theatre. It was a great show!

Kelly Ripa, RKB and Me

Yesterday, I attended a fun Electrolux press event. Kelly Ripa, the Electrolux spokeswoman, introduced their Valentine’s Day promotion where you can send a virtual cupcake to your sweetheart and Electrolux will donate $1 to ovarian cancer research. There are also auctioning off a Red Hot washer/dryer on Ebay.

The bidding on the “Red Hot Red” kitchen – which includes a built-in range, dishwasher, refrigerator and microwave – starts Wednesday, February 11th at 3 p.m. EST and lasts until 3 p.m. EST on Wednesday, February 18th. All proceeds of the charity auction benefit the OCRF as part of Electrolux’s commitment to help this worthy cause.

The Week In Links (February 6) Museum Of Art of Design, Right Rides Fundraiser

First Lady 2.12.09

It’s Monday the 9th, so I am late with this blog post.

Yesterday, I visited the brand new Museum of Art and Design at 2 Columbus Circle. There’s some cool work there. The Artist studio  on the 6th floor had Harlem artist Charles McGill working on a golf bag.  He decoupages golf bags with African American images and quotes that he finds through Google searches on the internet.  The result is iconic patterns created by repetition of .jpgs.

Netflixed: Breakfast on Pluto

Queercents Interviews: Robin Cloud and Daryn DeZengotita

New York Tech Meetup:  I’m on the Community Committee

Fundraiser: First Lady Fundraiser on February 12 at 7-10PM, $10.  It’s a fundraiser for Girls for Gender Equity, RightRides, and SAFER.
