I was very sad to find out that Peter Kaplan died. He became my first boss at the New York Observer when he hired me to be his assistant just a few months after I graduated from college. He taught me a lot, like to write what I know and if something was interesting to me it would be interesting to the reader. He was a spectacular writer, a caring mentor and the best editor I’ve ever known.
I wrote about my trip to San Miguel for Fathom. It’s a great place to go for the holidays.
My story about Lulu in yesterday’s New York Times Styles section quickly became the #1 most emailed article off the NYT site. I didn’t catch a screen grab of that, but I got a shot of the #2 slot. It was also the #2 most viewed and #2 most blogged about. I like the competition for the top slot with the story about the great ad for girls becoming engineers.
I wrote an article in tomorrow’s New York Times Styles section about the app Lulu. Check it out.
My husband and I got all gussied up for the HBO party after the Emmys last weekend. GIRLS didn’t win anything, but we still had a great time hanging with everyone. My friend Stacey Bendet of Alice & Olivia loaned me the dress and my friend Irene Neuwirth loaned me the earrings and bracelets. They made me feel like a very lucky lady.
I wrote about the Aqualillies, a synchronized swimming dance troupe, for this Sunday’s New York Times Styles section. Even though I’m pretty embedded in television writing these days, I still like to jump into journalism for a fun story like this one. I also got to work with my favorite editor, Alexandra Jacobs.
I wrote this month’s Drew Barrymore cover story for C magazine. I think she’s very cool.
