About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Amazon.com. Thanks.

Lust Is In The Air

It’s the mating season, and everybody’s doin it.  Squirrels, birds, bees, even educated fleas do it, to quote Cole Porter… let’s do it…let’s fall in love.  I could have sworn I saw two raccoons holding hands, turning out to be … Continue reading

Remembering Jackie

It was May, 1994, when I was coming home through Central Park, wondering why there were so many news trucks along Fifth Avenue. I had yet to learn, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, better known to the world, as just Jackie, had … Continue reading

Sassy, Quite A Lassie

I saw Sassy, the pit, in the park this morning.  She’s more an American Staffordshire without her ears pinned back, the upper-crust version of the average pit. Wish I had a photo, but never run with my iPhone. Heaven forbid … Continue reading

A Hairy Story

I was sitting at a little cafe in midtown when a well-dressed woman, two stools down, looked up from her phone and said, “What does hirsute mean?” “Hairy,” I said, without thought or pause, a word that always makes me … Continue reading

The Graceful Fall of Bill O’Reilly

Heart Double-parked

I’m crossing Park Avenue, an elderly man on a walker is approaching the opposite way, losing his balance, falling on the esplanade.  In his 80s, extremely tall…imagine Gulliver taking a spill. I run over, along with a young man holding … Continue reading

Besieged, Bothered and Bewildered

When my friend MJ stopped writing to me, I missed her, but let her alone.  I knew whatever was going on had nothing to do with me. When Tallulah the Bishon’s mother said in her Christmas card, sorry we haven’t … Continue reading
