Me: I kinda just wanted to borrow your APC boots for my trip :)
Big Sister: I know, well...maybe you can. I am very attached to them, you know.
Me: Well maybe you should MARRY them, then,
Big Sister: I would if I lived in Utah.
“i’m sure it’s nothing” is what people tell you whenever you relay potentially threatening medical information. this, my friends, is what they said when the titanic first hit the iceberg, what mercutio said of his fatal wound (“ay, ay, a scratch, a scratch”). this is one of those routine things that happens to so many women, to so many women i know. and it is...
Next Time You Kiss Someone on top of the Empire...
From the Empire State Building website: Kissing: Static electricity buildup is so mammoth on top of the Building that, under the right conditions, if you stick your hand through the observatory fence, St. Elmo’s fire will stream from your fingertips. Lovers who kiss up there may find their lips crackling with electric sparks.

Oh, right, I had a point
I started off the last post thinking about what to do for New Year’s and really just got pissed thinking about the whole thing. But anyhow… So I find myself in the predicament of having to coordinate three separate friends who are coming into NYC for the occasion. Was thinking about making New Year’s dinner…so that could work…but eh. In my experience, it’s okay...
NYE in NYC
Reasons why I loathe New Year’s Eve have mainly to do with how it is, without a doubt, the most UNCOMFORTABLE holiday: -You will be cold thanks to thanks to that party dress that doesn’t look good with tights. -Your feet will hurt because you are traipsing around all night in snazzy, but oh-so-impractical high heels. -You will be poor thanks to aforementioned party dress and high...
sales are insane right now. i crave, i crave, i crave. alexandre herchcovitch top from oak is lovely. would also like a new winter coat, and am eyeing this diesel one, were it not for the hefty pricetag. also excellent sale at lagarconne.com which has an extra 20 percent off for another day. in love with this vena cava dress, and this vanessa bruno skirt and jacket. there is also a decent sale...
the funny thing about vacations is that just when you reach the week-long mark, you feel both familiarized and comfortable with the routine of doing nothing, but also ready to get back to life. my sister (who is also here in st. croix, along with her husband, and my parents) and i often talk about life without work, adamantly insisting that we could in fact be quite happy as socialites who need...
Eee I have an article on MSN. That is kinda cool. →
what can happen in a week
Manfriend/international lover/guy who likes me back is about to leave and has been here for a week. I’ve often envisioned the posts I would put up about the past 7 days, but that’s kind of out of the question now because my blog is so closely tied into our relationship . It’s been sort of like living in a movie that lasts for a week…doing classic NYC stuff right before the...
I really should know the answer to this…but…looking for somewhere classy to have a drink around east Midtown tonight. Thinking something sort of old New York…Oak Room at the Plaza type thing. Has to be relatively close to Rock. Center. Ideas?

woke up about an hour ago with a panic attack. don’t you love those? luckily not a bad one, and got through it with some deep breathing and no chemicals. shrink would be proud. once calmer, i hopped online, which is my natural compulsion when unoccupied. decided to comb through e-mails and gchats with a guy. funny, how much you can forget, details-wise about a person and your interactions...
quotes from the evening/yeasayer concert
-“That guy looks like Patrick only fatter.” -“Do you think she thinks we’re together because I said we’re together?” -“Do you date boys or girls?” “Ummm…you know…both?” (Introduce us to the band!!) -“Leah, what is it we’re supposed to yell when they go on? RIP Bernie Mac?” “You’re not really...

Jour de Merde
Today hasn’t quite been the greatest of days. To begin with, had awful night of sleep, as was woken at 4 am by roommate who came home drunk. Drunk on a Monday. Couldn’t sleep what with paper thin walls allowing the noises of her hiccups to pass into my bedroom. Started to feel completely depressed in general about NYC lifestyle. Everything’s about appearances. The loft with the...
