well, it's official...i just flushed all of my post new years/post break-up healthy habits down the sh*tter. 5 days of pure debauchery with my Brooklyn ladies has driven me to salads and apples for a week. im a huge water drinker.. thats pretty much all I drink with the exception of alcoholic drinks and the occasional glass of milk...however, it's next to impossible to keep alot of water on you whilst parading the streets of new york. i completely dehydrated myself for 5 days via nightly martini's and vodka tonics, not drinking enough water, and eating lots of delicious salty foods including, but not limited to olives, martinis, french onion soup, open faced goat cheese sandwiches with tapenade (droool) and the list goes on.
enough about my vitamin depletion, now onto the dissapointing Lotta Jansdotter journey. i called her office, got the studio/shop hours, which by the way is only 1 day/wk..Saturday 12-4. ok, so I go to her new 8th st. location, dragging Tiffany, Papo and the other Jessica along with me, only to find NOONE HOME. GONE. OUT. DOOR LOCKED. AND THAT'S IT. i call and leave this pathetic "please call me if you get this today...im from nashville...big fan...yadda yadda" message on her machine. and here i am today. end of story. a little bitter, but no less of a fan.
so now i'm home, back at work...blah blah. i miss it already, and Tif--she was like my roomie for a week and a super-fantabulous, generous, fun host/tour guide/all around fun-leader who shares my love & appreciation for good food and drink.
to re-hash this February NY trip as shortly and sweetly as possible...
arrived valentines night, had good food, good drink, met new portland peeps, drank, woke up, shopped, ate drank, Purl Soho store!!!, karaoke, old dirty bar, ate, sleep, up & at 'em, re-hash awesome karaoke bar that we want to frequent nightly, eat, lots of french food, lots of french bars, got to repeatedly frequent my favorite BarTabac where lots of hot boys work(just a small perk), karaoke at another bar, MC got naked..i mean naked (a lady never tells, but he had the smallest peepee ive ever seen--not that that matters, but he was PROUD) taught Tiffany a little sewing (she made her fist tissue cozy), did some more outing & abouting, food, drink, cancelled flight, more time with Tif, so we got her rolling out her first tote bag and zipper pouch! on her 2nd day of sewing!!! yowza! she good.
im sure i forgot tons, so im prolly gonna have to come back & edit, add, delete, etc.
