yeah yeah yeah


thursday night i went to a screening of match point, which i found to be pretty good. tense. not *great* but very well done. i definitely had no idea what was going to happen or how it was going to end. the woman sitting next to me in the theater audibly gasped a couple of times.

i am still in love with jrm.

saturday night i was at a lovely holiday party, chatting and sipping champagne,
so i missed saturday night live.

but somehow i found this clip of the funny funny narnia rap.

it's all about the hamiltons, baby.

last night i had a divine 3 hour dinner at stanton social.

the concept is that you "share" plates, which means they can charge more and give you less. still, the food was inventive and really really good.

the winners:
- french onion soup dumplings
- warm spinach salad with roasted corn, smoked goat cheese and chile cashews
- red snapper tacos with fiery mango & avocado salsa
+ cocktail: pink grapefruit-mint martini
+ desert:
warm doughnuts, delish!!!

- wood-grilled pizetta with figs, smoked bacon, blue cheese and truffle honey
- grilled citrus & ginger wild striped bass satays with spicy orange peanut sauce
- kobe beef slider (microscopic and $6 each)

shoulda skipped:
butternut squash & sweet potato autumn ravioli with vanilla brown butter and candied pecans

random web thingy:

i'm going down
2 alphabet street
i'm gonna crown the first girl that i meet
i'm gonna talk so sexy
she'll want me from my head
to my feet

Thank Zeus For Cashmere.

it's below freezing in girlhattan.

i usually go outside with my hair slightly wet from the shower, but not when it's this cold.

so last night i went to red market, a salon in the meat packing district that stays open until 11pm. so fucking smart.

my stylist, david, was from paris et nous avons parlé français - i learned that "les mèches" are highlights.

but what's really saving my life is cashmere.

cashmere sweater and cashmere socks. i wish i had cashmere everything. if i had oodles of $$$ i would get skull sweaters from lucien pellat-finet, je pense qu'il est français aussi.

maybe i should rent or adopt a lil cashmere kid, he could live in the "courtyard" of my building and eat chinese food and i could learn to knit.

they are super cute.

...my life is brilliant.

times square

one of the better weekends of my life.

thankfully there's no photographic evidence.

hot gay cowboy love, house parties east and west, dragging myself out of apt @ 4am to have waffles on 8th ave and get home around 5am.

saturday night's quotable quote:

champagne for my real friends, real pain for my sham friends.*

much love to all the good people i was fortunate enough to spend time with while out and about.

thanks, everyone. you're beautiful.

track of the day:
james blunt - beautiful

*francis bacon via ed norton and apparently, recently, fall out boy.

they walk among us.

listen, don't ever tell me the dark crystal is just a movie.

newsflash, people:
gelfings live among us.

donald trump is married to one.

and now ashlee simpson is dating one.

don't be afraid! they are friendly and gentle.

just look at those eyes:

don't get me started on the awful skeksis...

whoops. here it is:

bom bom bom

essex street

this year, the following has happened to me over and over:

i groove to a song, and think, "that's a good song."

then listen to it again, and realize it's a political comment about the war.

it happened, of course, with green day, U2 and MIA.

and now: living things - bom bom bom. {click to listen}

i really like this song.

i know the lead singer looks like the love child david johanssen and mick jagger, but that seems appropriate. {if you click "media" and "moving pictures" you can watch the wacky technicolor video.}

a fountain of blood in the shape of a girl

only 25¢

now that i am a hideous monster who can make small children on the F train cry just by looking at them, life is different.

thank zeus it's winter and i can flip up the hood on my parka, as i did while strolling in the snow last night.

yes. my eye is still red and bloody, and i think it looks worse than in the pictures.

here's a depressing song to go with my crappy mood.

echo and the bunnymen - all my life

- crystal studded

- funky patterned

- swarosvki heart-adorned

- knit

saturday afternoon after running errands, going to the gym and so on and so forth, i looked in the mirror and there was a small spot of blood on my eye.

i immediately decided i was dying, and started to cry, which probably made the spot worse. so i got in bed and watched murderball on DVD, which was good, but made me feel lazy for lying in bed when i have two legs that work. so i went out.

i met workhorse at ace bar and we hopped on the back of his vespa and visited my brother, who was DJing in park slope. he was spinning on the 4th floor, but there was also a party on the 2nd floor, so we checked that out as well. on the 2nd floor i saw something i swear i have never seen in a new york apartment before: a poster of a nazi soldier on the wall. there were also little fighter planes hanging from the ceiling, but the nazi poster freaked me out the most. now, to be honest, the poster did say "the enemy" under the soldier's face. but still. who hangs a poster of a nazi soldier in their home?

upstairs, the beats were hot and i thawed out - it was cold on the back of the scooter, especially going across the manhattan bridge...

but it was a quid pro quo situation, so we had to hit workhorse's friend's party in red hook. but first we stopped at schnäck where i had delicious hot chocolate in an "it's a boy" mug.

at the red hook party the apartment was decorated with dutch vintage science posters, which is my new favorite decorative theme.

the party was fun, but i can neither confirm nor deny whether the host tried to make out with me when i was on my way out and his live-in girlfriend was in the other room.

when i woke up on sunday the blood spot on my eye was worse.



while watching TV i saw a wendy's commercial that brainwashed me with this techno song called "satisfaction."

i found the video online.

if you didn't like foxy chicks and power tools before, you will now.
friday the thighmaster posted something for the ladies.

this is for the fellas.
benny benassi - satisfaction.

shhh. my head hurts.

gin and tonic

omg. so hungover.

party @ the unbelievably gorgeous sky studios.
two words: open bar.

popped in next door to visit friend shane.

trekked over to lit for another round.

skipped down to number one chinese for another round and found a crazy booty bass atlanta stripper music party. funtime party team are my new heroes.

two more rounds.

walked home in the windy windy night.
saw the pole on my block, said hello.

didn't get enough sleep.

since i am functioning at about 7% of normal capacity,
and you know what kind of couples i like, i offer you something super silly:

interracial couple of the day

have a good weekend.

where you can find me

dodgeball + googlemaps = girlhattan's drinking patterns

i'm red; my friends are blue.

lost and found

okay, so we know i love teevee.

last night after i went to a screening of the chronicles of narnia, i went home to watch antm and lost.

within seconds, i was like, best. episode. ever.

that's because jin came out of his tent without a shirt.



jin and sun


it wasn't really the best episode ever, though.

but jack and kate kissed.

jack and kate

and sometime after that, adebisi mr. eko lurked in the darkness and said vaguely religious things.
i love him!


lost fans are obsessive. so many theories, plus wacky stuff like this!
