Reeve Carney from Spider-Man the Musical on Broadway
Sal and I finally saw Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark last night on Broadway. He noted that Reeve who plays Spider-Man looks like James Franco.  I agree, a fresher-faced, cleaned-up, less crack-heady version of Franco, also, the black velveteen bow he is wearing in this photo definitely ups the cuteness factor.

We both liked the idea of a Spider-Man jacket, a simplified version of this hoodie would be cool.

This now concludes my "no caffeine" experiment

So I tried a month of caffeine free ~ cappuccino free living.

The GOOD- Elimination of feelings of impeding doom.  No panicky feelings that I am going to be suffocated to death on a crowded NYC subway.

The BAD- Foggy head in the morning and took me much longer to get things done.

The MEH- Equally as alert in the late afternoon and evenings with or without my morning coffee.

I realized yesterday I've been drinking "caffe` e latte" off and on since I was 5 years old, why stop now unless I have to?  However,  I will still limit intake to one capp. a day to (try to) prevent a racing heart and the associated unwarranted feelings of dread.

Summer school time again!

I've been keeping busy with web design freelance work during the day and painting class every night during the week.

This past Saturday I did this quickie painting at Carl Schurz Park on the upper east side of Manhattan.  It felt good to sit out in the sun and feel the breeze through my paintbrush bristles again :)
