This is going to be my final post on this blog.  As you can see, I haven’t posted in a month and a half.  After a lot of thought, I have come to the realization that this blog has run its course in my life.  I started in 2008 as a way to get my thoughts out into the world.  It brought me a lot of joy for a long time.  Things are much different in my life now.  I have settled into a new job that I can see myself at for a very long time.  I can’t even begin to describe how that feels.  I have been taking voice lessons since August in preparation for a cabaret show next month.  And I’ll be turning 30 in 36 days.  It’s amazing that I am not nearly as scared about that like I was this past April.

I am so thankful for all of my readers! Your comments and messages really enabled me to continue with this blog.  I wish you all the best in 2012!!! I had a great time and a great run as Daddycatcher!


National Tequila Day

Posted in Holiday on July 24, 2011 by Daddycatcher

In honor of National Tequila Day (which coincides with the first day same-sex marriages become legal in New York), here is a report from Nightline on the inventor of the frozen margarita machine.  His name is Mariano Martinez, also known as Daddycatcher’s own personal hero!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Cinco de Mayo

There is nothing like a strawberry margarita at Cilantro on East 89th Street and 2nd Avenue to put you in the mood for a fabulous Cinco de Mayo!

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Posted in Holiday on January 17, 2011 by Daddycatcher

Today, we remember a man who had a dream of peace and unity.  In this time when our country is busting at the seems with intolerance, hate, and violence, everyone should take the time to remember the words of this brave man.
