listen to this song while reading this post- it will make you happy.....it is so good to listen to on the subway!!!
SO MY FLATMATE just made a reservation for a restaurant down the road, quickest available- FEB 2010- she booked it for 6 just in case we meet cool people and want to invite them.
WOW new york....you're freaking me out man.
I feel so retarded for never updating this blog and telling people that I will and just dont, and I keep on talking to people or writing emails with the same silly gossip so IM GOING TO WRITE IT IN ONE PLACE FROM NOW ON AND ITS HERE!
Here. where? Theres a party over there would you like to come? hen bring a bottle of rum-tum-tum. Cant afford it. Then pack your bags and get lost.
New York is so cheap! You can buy pizza slices bigger than my cat latte for $1 on almost every street corner, topped with italian home-made boccocini or avocado or vodka sauce (best thing). You can buy nutrient/vitamin water to counteract all the pizza for $1 too!
So we're having a party at our house on Saturday night--- this is what it looks like although I will post more photos soon
(ALL THE CITY PHOTOS ARE THE VIEW FROM OUR ROOFTOP/LOUNGE ROOM......IT IS ABSOLUTLY INCREDIBLE AND I SIT UP THERE AND DRINK TEA AND READ MY TRASHY BOOK AND GET VITAMIN D AND ALWAYS FEELING LIKE I MIGHT HAVE DIED AND THIS IS ACTUALLY HEAVEN)
Im living with a Danish girl called Michelle, and an Amercian girl called Tracey. The dane is doing an internship with an online fashion trend forcasting magazine and Tracey is doing PR, her firm handles alot of fashion week clients so we're all running around like mad hens at the moment in preparation for next month.
Fernando is the last person I live with and is lots of fun, he is a major legue baseball player and recently gave Michelle a signed copy of one of his baseball cards, which she found amusing and unneccessary, but New Yorkers are weird like that. Everyone needs to anaylse and one-up the next person, and everyone is really into self-promotion. Maybe thats how you get higher up or maybe everyones just too bloody self-confident here.
Here are some photos of the Australians I have been hanging out with alot- especially in this awesome bar called Max fish -----
They are all Sarah G's friends, a girl I went to high school with
Her boyfriend (ANDYYY) won a green card in the online lottery and ended up moving here about 6 months ago to do an internship at a place called Common Projects- which he has since basically taken over and now gets paid! YAY but minimally, so if I win the lottery tomorrow (as planned) then I will share 20% with him, and 20% with Jackson, because we bought them toether...
Jackson is an awesome bloke who I have basically been spending every day with so far because he is Australian and super calm and cool and collected and all the other good c-words, including good cook. We have been very touristy, visiting MoMa, the bodies exhibition, the rock and roll exhibition at Brooklyn Muuseum, Times Square etc etc.
(this is jackson with my hair over the top....)
We saw this horrible movie together called On The Road- DO NOT GO AND SEE IT- even if Rolling Stone said it was amazing----its horrible and scary and boring....basically its the end of the earth (but noone bothers explaining why) and Charlize Theron kills herself pretty early on in the movie so theres not even aesthetic viewing pleasure, and a man and his son basically travel around America looking for food and the sea, which they eventually find and the man dies. Great.
All the humans turn to cannibals and start eating each other and they have to keep running away from freaky situations where people have locked other people up and are eating thier legs etc for something to do.....
basically its shit
there are a few funny things in it though like when the boy asks "daddy, do we eat people"
"no son, we're good people"
"even if we're starving"
"we're starving right now arent we"
"okay so how else do i tell if people are good"
"son, if people are good they carry the fire"
my new coat: what do you think melissssblisss??
OKAY so it was quite funny for the rest of the week bagging Jackson about the script, and it was lots of fun quoting it.
Other funny things included going to Babeland- a crazy sex shop in manhattan that sells everything from candles and moisturiser to 'the rabbit' and rubber duckies (less innocent than you might think) IT FREAKS ME OUT BECAUSE LATER THAT DAY I NOTICED A RUBBER DUCK IN THE BATHROOM AND THE GUY THAT OWNS THIS HOUSE IS TOTALLY CRAZY AND WHEN I MOVED IN HE TOLD ME HE HAD PREPARED ME A PLEASURE BOX FULL OF MASSAGERS AND CONDOMS AND CANDLES SO THAT I CAN FEEL MORE AT HOME........ARGH
LOL okay when Tracey first came here she got really drunk with him (his name is Trey and he's the one throwing the party on Saturday) and they ended up coming back to this house at about 5am- because Tracey was brand new in town she didnt know how to get home so she just slept here, with Trey, and she woke up a few hours later soaking wet.......they had gotten so drunk that he had weed all over her EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
it literally is 2am and I have to be at work at 9:30 and Im going to Julian Casablancas tomorrow night with that football player Nathan Brown SO I REALLY NEED TO GET SOME SHUT EYE..
I bought new blue laura Ashley flannel sheets that are floral and beautiful and now I feel so lucky to be in bed and so upset that Ill only get to chill in there for a few hours.
I WILL UPDATE EVERYTHING ON EVERYTHING ON THE WEEKEND. MOST DEF. MOS DEF
sorry sorry sorry!
