I read and I read

I read and I read. I've been reading and writing books since I knew how. I used to write tons of short stories in elementary school and dreamt of being a writer, then a fashion designer, then a lawyer, then an art historian and now a PR professional that does tons of writing. I still think that sometimes I'll venture back to my true love of writing.

I read all the time, so much and it all somewhat sinks in but once in awhile, I read something and it blows my mind and that's the moment that I realize, that's why I read. That's why no matter what I read, I love it and respect the art form that it is. I can't draw, I can't sing, I can't dance, writing is my art.

"What difference does it make after all? 
- anonymity in the world of men is 
better than fame in heaven, for what's heaven? 
what's earth? All in the mind." ... 
Jack Kerouac, On the Road

That sums up my entire life, beliefs and cynicism for the past 10 years. I bow down to the Beat Generation. I FINALLY, FINALLY, FINALLY read Jack Kerouac and I bow down.

Got a Husband

So I think I've finally recuperated from the weekend which was one of the best weekends ever!! I had a friend come down from NY to stay with me since he was meeting up with his friend from Germany who was in town visiting his aunt. Friday started off with happy hour and the weekend just continued from there and ended going on until Monday morning at 8:00 am when I realized I had yet to sleep and had to go to work.

Highlights of the weekend:

  • Having undercover cops come into Ed's since J had to break in
  • Drinking a 40 in Tompkins Square Park (FYI: I don't drink beer)
  • Not getting the "private party" line
  • Swaying at Sway when it was supposed to be an "early" night
  • Meeting a new German friend who I can visit in Berlin
  • Discovering I have a husband in T.O.
  • Rekindling my friendship with someone I adore and missed

So much fun, sad part is I get really lonely when people leave. Happened with Rachel, happened last weekend and will happen this weekend when my BFF Googs comes. Why can't you all just stay here with me??!!!

Here's some pics...I GUARANTEED had more fun this weekend than ALL of you!!!

xoxo to J & J, come back real soon!

I've Declared Myself Weird

This is what happened in my dream last night...

Friend: Hey did you hear Rilo Kiley died last night?
Me: No how did she die? I love her.
Friend: Didn't you know, her mom created her, like Pinocchio.
Me: What? Really?
Friend: Yes, her time expired.

Um, wtf is that? I woke up and was like huh? I think the red wine from last night did this to me. I may be losing my mind.

On a side note, my allergies are absolutely ridiculous, I can't see or breathe and I have a constant drip in only my right nostril and a seasonal cough. I also get season asthma due to my allergies. In TO they would start in August b/c I'm ragweed but I guess I am going to have a whole new set of allergens here in NY. I can't wait...shoot me, seriously, shoot me. I have months ahead of me filled with stuffed up noses, runny noses, congestion, asthma, itchy, watery eyes, dry noses, loss of voice, etc. Yeah I lose my voice too oddly enough. I hate the outdoors.

New BFF Pen

So I have a new BFF, her name is Penelope. I have yet to meet her but I'm sure it'll be love at first meet/sight. She's the bestest thing in the world. I just want to eat her!!! Her dad is my cousin Dave's friend, so Geoff is my BFF Pen's dad. I kept saying this to him on Friday night, he thinks I'm weird. She lives in Conneticut so I can't meet her until May 17th. We're like long lost souls. I'm going to nominate her for the Sartorialist Cutest Baby contest...even though it's on hiatus, Pen may push him to reenact it.

All These Wants with Little Means

So here's Mary Kate and Ashley (why is MK's name always first) HIGH, VERY HIGH end clothing line line, The Row. I can' t seem to find a Lookbook but that may also be b/c I'm really shitty at looking for stuff. If anyone finds can you please send my way!! Thanks!! I love this so much I may hurt myself.

I bought myself pleather leggings, they are so tight I can barely get them on and off. I think I may be getting a gut which sucks b/c the only way to stop that is to do sit ups which I hate and can't really do.

My cousin's here from T.O. We're all going out. Have a great weekend wherever you are!

That's all. 

I'm Allergic to Middle America

Haven't posted in awhile b/c I've been so busy with work, but a good kind of busy! Just got back from a tradeshow in Vegas which was a big success. I met with a huge, new client who are extremely nice and I am looking forward to working with them. Vegas on the other hand, yeah NOT my cup of tea. Too much cheese, too much extravagance, too much everything. Plus it was too expensive...sorry guys, no clue what the appeal is. I'm sure I would like it much better if I had gone with my friends but the part that annoyed me would still exist.

My Friday was a bit ridonculous. I met up with Laura who was here from T.O. for a weekend for Paulie's bday. We started at Hotel Gansevoort which was so so, typical NYC pretentiousness. I ended up jumping out of cab since they were going the opposite way and somehow ended up at Beatrice, again, by myself for hours. Saturday was recuperation since I was so tired from Friday especially considering I had taken the red eye home that morning.

Ended up talking to lots of my besties from T.O. to catch up on the past couple of weeks and Michelle...seriously stop with the bender, I'm still recuperating from mine in December. Lots of people coming down too for visits...too lovely!!

I have many wants right now, all material things. I haven't shopped in ages...I'm serious. I'm trying to get settled into my home and it's taking all my funds. I need new platforms, new shorts, new jeans, new tops, new bags, new sunglasses, new everything!! God.
