All in one day (Friday) I hit Ess-A-Bagel (I like scallion cream cheese and tomato on sesame), AQUAVIT for vodka-lunch (I found the cucumber best, but the mango chile was good too), a quick vodka-induced chat with Patience and Fortitude (followed by a more lengthy chat with some supersmartÂ NYTimes reviewers, convened by the always-awesome Mizz Bird), Enids for a “cool” drink, and BAM (for the astounding Batsheva).Â I also ate mediocre Thai food, saw good friends, watchedÂ a movie, and snuggled a new baby in Brooklyn.
The following day I spent in a conference I’m not going to tell you much about, since I’m not sure I’m allowed, and also it was a conflicting (though meaningful) experience for me, one I have yet to unpack.Â Then I crashed at my best friend’s apartment, with wine and take-out Italian food.Â We fell asleep to Fred and Ginger.
Then on Monday, I headed uptown to meet a co-conspirator and her awesome husband for ginger coffee and good conversation.Â And after that the aforementioned conspirator and IÂ went to meet the fabulous Tina Wexler (agent-to-the-stars but also to little old me) at her fancy office.Â Where I resisted the temptation to sneak around the building, looking for movie stars and rappers.
Steak and eggs followed, and then… home home home… to a fast approaching deadline and my BABIES!Â Who beat even wonderful NYC all hollow.
Funny, how the PB&J tastes better after a few days of “adult” living.
