Hi I’m Louise Rourke (not really but this is a good pen name I think) and this is a blog about my life as a 40+ woman living in New York City right now. I’m going to share it all with you from jobs, dating, apartments to subway situations and my understanding of the New York state of mind (you like that…New York state of mine…clever right?)….

You may think I’ve made up some of the stories but the reality is…it’s all true…the only things fake are the names and minor details I’ve changed to protect the identities of friends, lovers, old bosses and creeps who I’d like to make public but I don’t want to get sued (although I don’t really have anything so it’d be like getting blood from a stone…or so they say).
