Labour of Summer

So it's here, the end of summer as we all know it. The last long weekend and I can't say that I'm too upset mainly because I'm totally over my allergies which have been the worst ever. My first summer in NY was amazing even though I didn't get to do even half the stuff on my list but I did enjoy every minute. I also got to go to Israel and see amazing sites, I met amazing new friends, had tons of inappropriate party/dancing nights and met a lovely new special person whom I adore.

I have lovely friends here from T.O. and my lovely Jessica will also be attending weekend festivities.

Have a safe and amazing holiday!

However, if I was in T.O. I'd be going here...Krista's cottage by the lake but instead I'll be in stinky, smelly NY, which I guess really isn't that bad.

We'll walk around, Pretending we're all grown up, Hey, Rich Girl!

My weekend in a few short notes:
  • Boyfriend checks us into 60 Thompson Hotel
  • 3 story private loft party in SOHO at bf's best friend's office space with only like 50 people
  • Private party was for Ryan McGinley's welcome home from his 3rd annual road trip for some NY magazine that I can't remember
  • Midnight acoustic set by the Virgins
  • Meeting and handshaking of MK (yes, that MK) - intro courtesy of my lovely bf
  • Rocking out on a rooftop with an open bar with 3 gfs, my bf, his friends and MK
  • Sitting on a couch for 30 min. beside MK and dancing beside her
  • Being too shy to say anything to MK but, "Hi, I'm Janet, nice to meet you."
This weekend was tres, tres, fun. I gave up the Hamptons for this and it was 100% worth it. The party was intimate, perfect and amazing. And yes, I'm embarrassingly that obsessed with MK - maybe it's b/c we're the same height/weight/size or b/c we're usually on the same style wavelength? No clue but I like her. I was more excited to see her than hear The Virgins or meet the photog, probably b/c I had no clue who he was but supposedly I should. He just sold one of his pics to Sigur Ros for the cover of their new album but to me, he's my bf's friend from when he was like 10, his old skater buddy who was his roommate in shitty NY apts throughout college - that's all.

Hope you guys had a blast this weekend too.

And I'm Back

So sorry, too much has been going on in my life as of late but I'm back to happily blogging about it again. I moved into the new apartment and things fit amazingly well. I love the area, I can walk to all my favorite places and friends and having my own bathroom again pretty much kicks ass. A little loud since my window faces the street of Avenue C but it doesn't really bother me. Plus, I now officially have exposed brick walls which is the ONE MAJOR thing I've always wanted since moving to NY.

The city's still hot, humid, expensive, crazy and abusive. I've been spending literally ALL my time with a new, special person who is goofy, fun and adoring. Work is wonderful and a big pain at the same time and I still miss my friends and family dearly but it's getting easier with everyday that passes. I went to Rock the Bells, got to see Jay, Meth & Red, Talib Kweli, Nas and literally every other hip hop artist to ever grace the face of this earth. Was an experience. Didn't go to Yacht Rock b/c I was being lame and never found my love from the train but obviously got over it. BUT I have been shopping like a mad women at sample sales ... especially the E&J one so this must stop but can't b/c Barney's annual sale starts NOW!

Things are kicking going into August. Would still love some visitors and the Polaroid fridge has moved to a Polaroid magnet wall so please come one, come all!!! Hope all is well in everyone's land.

I leave you with this, just b/c I'm sad that there will be no more books.
