Writing

There are writers and then there is…

Cancer Head

Susannah Breslin.

Probably one of the most ‘real’ writings I’ve ever read about a woman surviving breast cancer. I’ve been following her for a couple of years now absorbing her writings from the business side of pornography, to self analysis of why you need to look deeply as to what you do for work, to surviving cancer. She does it all with a sharp, very sharp, biting writing style. This last piece, just published on Men’s Health, is a cumulation of this. Hotly crafted pure expression about her personal experience that she has tapped into and put done in an unmistakable style of writing it is all her own. Absolutely incredible writing. Go. Read. Now.

What Surviving Cancer REALLY taught Her
“After my cancer experience, I kept waiting for the divine epiphany…”

NOTE: Susannah Breslin is NOT for the faint, weak of heart, or those who can’t deal with sexuality. And not for anyone under 16. Also if you are looking for amazing tips on how to get yourself motivated for employment, check out her past writings on Forbes.com.

Reviewing Rafflecopter…

At work we used Rafflecopter to run a Facebook contest. After using it, I did a review about my experience on TrustRadius, a professional reviewing site. Hope you find it useful.

I’m going to disclose a little secret here, I on a girlie email list. Not cause I’m really interested in getting the best deal on purses, the latest fashion trends or nail salon specials, but because they also have openings and preview openings of cool places to go. Well they really delivered with this one.

Location is Mid town, right on the Main street area where you can see the rail line. Parking is in the back. Pretty easy to get to, with website has directions to get there from most directions. (Link is at the bottom.)

After seeing the mini write up in the girlie email blast, I made plans with a friend and her husband to meet me out there on a wednesday for a couple of drinks. Not a happy hour night, but the email blast did give me a secret password to get a special price on the drink of the month: the Debutante made by the bar manager Alexis Casanova. Sweat tea vodka, peach schnapps, ginger juice, sour, and soda. $5 for the month of Feb if you say Tidbits. Don’t worry the sweet talkative and attentive Alexis will totally take care of your drinking needs.

But really the place is all about the LAMPS. You see, they have hundreds of reproduction tiffany lamp shades hanging from the ceiling and all around. It is gorgeous. I didn’t bring a camera, so these blurry cell phone camera pics will do for now.

I did go back for a second drink, only this time I got a traditional martini, Bombay with Lillet and olives. Clean. Alexis was a doll and suggested the Lillet when she detected what a picky martini drinker I am. It was my first time using Lillet as a vermouth. I wasn’t disappointed. Delicious and very clean/neat.

Will be heading back to this place with my camera&tripod for more shots. Do stop by if you get a chance. The interior decorations are beautiful and well worth the visit. Be sure to check out the web site for more photos as well as a schedule for special events on certain days. The Tuesday Mazzy Star music night looks to be killer cool…
