Not All Super Heroes Wear Capes

Well today she does. Please help me congratulate Mrs. Trumpet on achieving her Masters from NYU. Not only did she do this in 2 years, she did it while working full time, interviewing and getting a new job, and we moved too. I am proud of her but I may punch her in the throat if she decides that she wants to go after that Doctorate.  Not to worry, she has assured me that the next couple of books she reads will be for fun.

img_2222She was a good sport 2 years ago when I snapped this pic before her first day.

IMG_1586This shit is getting old is what she is really thinking

IMG_4024 (1)Oh and by the way, her football team is undefeated! #WewantBama

I am so proud of her and I am also looking forward to not having to study all the damn time.

Happy Monday from Hipster Brooklyn

“We hardly go into Manhattan anymore. Why go there when we have everything we need here in Brooklyn.”  Ease Up folks! Don’t start burning manbuns and V-Neck shirt just yet. Its been a tough weekend and I am typing this on my Work Hotspot as we are going to have to wait 2 weeks for FIOS.

Anyway we are in Downtown Brooklyn and I will report more later. Trust me when I say that I have a WHOLE new subject matter to expound on.

Hope you are doing well after Music Fest and the Kentucky Derby. I know it has been a tough one.

“Hazy Day yesterday when I took this. Yep the View Doesn’t Suck! And yes that is the Empire State Building I get to see every night. Text 901.526.5261 to know what color it is.

Have a salad and extra water if you were at either Music or Jazz Fest or the Derby. You need it.

Pictures of the Week – Who doesn’t love cold and rain?

Yeah, pretty much this weather sucked balls. If it wasn’t blistering cold it was a gully washing rain. Here are some pictures from the past weeks.

IMG_2988_LIDon’t you hate waking up the morning after a couple of beers and you text your drinking consultant? Oh come on….you know that you have done it. Stop judging me RJ and JL. You too LVD we have all done it!

IMG_2987“Why is there a bunch of crap in the sink?” – said the next morning after aforementioned drunken bender.

IMG_2976Sober….ish

IMG_2951Oh.Hell.No! If he wasn’t over 6 feet I was going to go over there and tell him that it wasn’t capri pant season yet!

IMG_0935Happy Birthday to this little Devil! Back when you were little and cute and didn’t have hair on your pencil.

Carnegie Deli pastramiThis always helps when you over serve yourself.

We are heading over to Philly this weekend for a 3year old birthday party. I bet it is going to be cold.

 

Pictures of the Week

Hope you had a good week. It is supposed to be actually warm today with a high in the low 70’s! Of course my arse is going to be in a training this morning and Hurricane Tucker rolls into town this afternoon. Here are pictures from a couple of weeks back. Have a good weekend, we are heading over to Downtown Brooklyn to check things out and maybe see the Lady Barrister.

IMG_2928So what that I have a diet rich in salted meats, cheese and you have to unhinge your jaw to get this thing in your mouth. (That’s what she said)

IMG_2942Oh look here is where Mrs. Trumpet goes to everyday

IMG_2908Great bar on the West Side and when you walk in it is like you stepped into a time machine

IMG_2910I am sure a penthouse on 5th Avenue overlooking Central Park isn’t that expensive. Lets buy two!

IMG_2946So I decided to do a little Juice Cleanse to “study” for my blood test for my yearly physical. Shout out to my cousin for suggesting this Bermuda grass and Tree Bark company.

IMG_2950Actually it isn’t as bad as one would think. Expensive and I am having some wild food cravings but I guess it will pay off.

IMG_2932Of course when you go Vegetarian (stop Laughing Amy Farrah Fowler) you do start cramping up so I suggest you get a couple bottles of this life saver. HEY AJ – Get these ready for the bar would you?

Have a good weekend

 

Pictures from the Week

As we close out the week with yet again shitty cold weather I think back to when it wasn’t ball shrinking cold here and there were leaves on trees and such. Is it obvious that we are growing weary of Ole Man Winter? Daily I cure RAB’s name for calling Mother Nature a crack whore because this is for the birds.

IMG_2899Who ever heard of Opening Day getting Snowed Out? It has happened twice since moving up here.

IMG_2885Made a trip to Patrizia’s during Holy Week.

IMG_2886See I had my recommended daily allowance of Fruit!

IMG_2884Took the College Kids to a Burger Joint in a Hotel. I think they were impressed

 

IMG_2911If I had known that this joker were in town I would have met up with him for a drink. One of these days I am going to sit down with him and drink some Vodka!

IMG_2879Was able to grab a Pastrami the other day since these guys weren’t closed for Passover

IMG_2866Nobody notices that you are doing the walk of shame lady! You hold that head high with your smudged make up and your dignity wadded up in your purse.

Have a good weekend!

Whisky Tango Foxtrot Carbunkle?

Stop yelling at me, you are probably going to see fewer posts between now and the middle of May. No I am not doing some weird Post Lent purge, momma is nearing the end of her NYU Grad School so the laptop is in full use. Anyway we really haven’t been doing much as of late *BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN SO FUCKING COLD* I mean seriously, we have had 4 Nor’Easters and this Sunday is the start of Seersucker Suit Season!

I do have a future coffee shop blog post/rant about 4 C-Word Upper East Side hard working housewives as I sat next to them at 80th and Lexington. Let’s just say that they might as well have been wearing tennis skirt outfits and or Lulumon leggings as pants. This past weekend was kinda lame but we have new iFoams and it only took me 5 hours to get that done on Sunday.

And as we know this week is Holy Week or as Julian Maile from Losers Lounge said on Good Friday last year “So Jesus died today but he will be back in 3 days. Pretty much anything goes!”

Happy Easter Folks!

IMG_2863When we do get out of our cages we do come up on some really cool shit! This is Grand Central Station as we were walking with my Work Wife (the Domestic One) so she could catch her train home.

IMG_2862The Real and the Domestic One! S/O to the Bar, International, Memphis and HW/AMF wives.

IMG_2856I mean seriously folks! This was taken last Thursday. I saw that the folks in Memphis were bitching about it being hot.

IMG_2858I seriously laughed out so loud that I had scalding hot espresso come out my nose.

IMG_0924Easter for the longest time was always trips down to Destin. I do miss some Peeps Jousting! IMG_2872

Happy Easter Spud!

And to quote RAB – “I can’t wait for you to tell me on Sunday that the bread is ready!”

Random Pics still on my iFoam

So I am upgrading foam today, I don’t want to get a higher magnifications on my readers so I am getting one of those iFoam 8Plus jokers. I am almost certain to catch shit from some folks up here given that I ask them “why do you have a tablet on your ear?” Oh and Momma is getting the new iFoam X so she be one upping your ass Didi.

Here are some pics that I have had on the foam that I want to get to hardrive (yes I know that there is a cloud I could upload that to but I am almost 48 years old) I don’t have time for that shit!

IMG_2830I get busted out for mispronouncing this subway stop every time. But these are the same people who make fun of me for saying Houston Texas instead of How-Ston, Texas.

IMG_2822Don’t blame me J-Bob, blame the building owner. The are going to be down the street near the NBA store and Adidas so you will be fine. And there are a couple bars I can visit.

IMG_2806Shout out to my former Mentor who is leaving my ass for something better. I appreciate all the advice and keeping me from jumping off the ledge. Best of luck and we will be in touch.

IMG_0917 (1)Just wanted to post this to see if I can troll anyone else. This was still making its rounds this week.

Apparently I will have much better pictures with the new iFoam. I will keep you posted.  I am heading out the door right now because Momma has a school meeting this morning in the apartment. Dogs you are on your own.

Living The Rock Star Lifestyle Here

Clubs, 3 Michelin Star Restaurants, Partying till 4AM on a Tuesday Night/Morning what a week I have had this week….wait who am I kidding here? My ass starts wants to head to bed by 10:30PM each night. We had a busy week given it was a snow day on a Wednesday. On Friday night I met up with UWS Holly, Mrs. Trumpet and a school friend for some wine before they went to musical. UWS was heading to New Jersey and I was heading to the UES to do laundry. Yep Friday night and who do I have a date with? Tide Pods, Bounce dryer sheets and a good stiff Tito’s and Soda. I made that laundry my bitch by the way!

Saturday morning we got our Fresh Direct order so I was up early. After giving a shout out to “April the pregnant Crab in Baltimore” on the Book of Face I decided to do a little spring cleaning. Mind you it was a ball shrinking 30 degrees Saturday morning so any outdoor activity would require a lot of clothing and lets be honest – I AM FUCKING OVER THIS COLD WEATHER! I mean it is the friggin 12th of March, could we at least have mid 50’s for a high?

I took the dogs out, fed them, shaved my balls & back, I fixed breakfast for Mrs. Trumpet, then I decided it was time to clean out some closets. One of the great benefits of this 535 square foot apartment is that we have killer closets. It isn’t the walk in beauty that RJ and Mallory now have at 595 in Memphis but we are very lucky. Anyway I decided to tackle the entry hall closet, Shobo’s purse closet and then the attic (you wondering what the hell I am talking about) storage area. Yep it was a busy Saturday.

One would think that if you have already downsized one wouldn’t have to do it again for at least 5 years. Well nope, my goofy ass filled a suitcase that would cost over 200 bucks to fly domestic and I haven’t’ even tackled my own personal closet.

IMG_2808Wine Flights for 12 bucks at happy hour? Now I wonder why Mrs. Trumpet picked this place.

IMG_2812Pay no attention to the “Maintenance Wine” or my fancy La Croix bubbly water?

IMG_2813The Purse/Sweatshirt closet

IMG_2816The Attic/Back Room where we store all of our $hit. Yes those are gallons of water in the top right. We have to use distilled water for our humidifier (THAT WE STILL FUCKING HAVE TO USE IN MID MARCH!)

IMG_2817Since we just got rid of our larger suitcase we are now down to 2 carry on pieces of luggage.

IMG_2818The Office/Guest Luggage Storage/Beach Chair Storage Area/Monkey Head Bedroom

Bored yet? Yep, that was our Friday and Saturday. RELAX Folks, next weekend is the Super bowl of drunken drinking or as the Irish call it – St. Patrick’s Day. I have already spoken to my St. Patrick’s Day date and she is ready to drink with guys who have swords with me. This year is a bonus since this St Patrick’s Day falls on a weekend so Mrs.. Trumpet can join us this year for the whole drunken episode.

Sorry Folks, That is life in our Rock star lifestyle.

 

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah I know – Bonus Tuesday Post!

I am guessing that some of you are wanting a refund because I am blogging so infrequently these days. With all due respect when we don’t do much on the weekend it really doesn’t make for good blog material. Last week Momma was busy with a work trip and I had a training downtown so we really didn’t do much that weekend. Now this past weekend we didn’t do much but I was able to get out and about a tad.

Anyway here are some bonus pictures on a Tuesday

IMG_2759Got to Love Thomas Keller and his joints here and on the Left Coast. This was posted at “the pass” at his French Laundry restaurant.

IMG_2765Already spoke to my Mermaid Parade Date for this year. She is going to bring out the crown again!

IMG_2781Look at the focus that Red Dog has right now. What you don’t see is that Mrs. Trumpet has a slice of cheese in her hand. Maya is a cheese whore to say the least.

IMG_2777Why am I on Brain Detail?

IMG_2758Sent this to A-Cup because not only is it a damn shame that they make vegan hot dogs but that someone is going to spend $6.00 on this is a real shame. I guess cardboard is expensive.

Have a good day!

Pictures of the Week – Happy Fish Friday Folks!

Shout out to my favorite Pseudo Catholic R A B – She does loves Lent more than Brown Water Season.

So last weekend I was down in the count with a sinus infection and I guess because I live in the petri dish of society (aka New York) I am not any better. I was coughing up a storm this evening sitting next to Golden T (see what I did there TG) at dinner and she was concerned. I assured her that it was self induced and I would be back to my cigar smoking self soon. Regardless here are this week’s (it has been a short week) pics of the week. And I apologize if you are stalkers of mine on Instagram because you may see some repeats.

IMG_2739This is the equivalent of Krystal’s up north. And they ship them in a friggin box of 30!

IMG_2740So those two guys in the middle of the picture…yep they are twins and they just celebrated 45 trips around the sun. Oh but one of them is going to Memphis for Memphis in May BBQ Fest. So Staten Island S Squared (see did what I did there again) you want to be my date that weekend? I got “A Guy”!

IMG_2741Sunday we ate well on some Sunday Sauce

IMG_2751Not sure what is more frightening. The Tribble (Star Trek reference) on LJZ’s purse or the carpet at the Downtown Marriott.

IMG_2753So if I may bust some chops now. I had no idea that the A**** F****** was on tour. Photo Credit to Air Traffic Jenna

Have a good weekend folks. It’s been a wild week for us. I am looking forward to having a Sunday Funday one of these days.
