It's My Freakin' SITS Day!



Can you say finally?! Squeee!

Ok, some background for the non-SITS peeps: The Secret is in the Sauce is a cool little blog community where you can meet a bunch of other fun blog peeps (like moi), leave comments, enter giveaways and gather tips to improve your site.

Intro for the Dry As Toast newbies: Hi! What's up?

It's true, I'm a born-and-bred New Yorker and a freelance magazine writer who covers health, lifestyle, love and sex and money. Before you ask, no, my life is not like Sex and the City (though I must say it's received a total upgrade in the love department the last few months.) Thanks for stopping by on my featured day and I hope you'll come back around soon :)

Also, sorry this is rushed but it's 7:30 AM, I just woke up to 30 something e-mails and wondered what the hell was going on. Surprise for me, huh?

For a way more composed taste of Dry As Toast writing check out my recent posts or these three faves of mine:

Secret Agent Man
An Assignment from Codename S.A.M.
Saw My Old Crush on the Train Last Night

And for a taste of NYC randomness and pictures, check out my NYCentric section!

Happy Friday indeed! And to think I wasn't going to bother with the computer today...

    Oh, & I love how you addressed the SITC question- it's funny how misled people can be about where you live. I live in Las Vegas & I get asked ALL.THE.TIME. what hotel I live at & if I'm a stripper or a blackjack dealer. Sigh.

Looking forward to reading more on your blog :)
