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 Thanks.

Takes So Little

I was having a trying day, so when I came home and found raspberries in front of my door, it changed my channel, so to speak. I have a neighbor I rarely see, but we leave things for each other. … Continue reading

Best Story of the Week…August 20th

I’m at the Breast Torture Center for my annual mammogram. As I enter, a Latina in navy scrubs jumps in front of me and says, “Don’t go any further,” as she whips out a thermometer she shoves in my ear. … Continue reading

  While the late Anthony Bourdain was still the Executive Chef at Brasserie Les Halles, in midtown Manhattan, he’d see an older woman peer in the window most afternoons, but never come in. One day he went out to ask … Continue reading

Did You Know?

A U.S. President’s State of the Union Address was always read by a court clerk rather than the man himself, until Woodrow Wilson took the helm in 1913. Thomas Jefferson, who didn’t much care for public speaking, installed the rule, … Continue reading
