August 29, 2010

Blog completion date! Which makes me a little sad, we'll see what happens with future blogging projects. (And, while I didn't technically take this picture, it felt funny not to end with a crazy-eyed horse and me in a blue hat.)

Reykjanes peninsula. Fermented shark (which I ate).

Today I took the Golden Circle tour and it was phenomenal.

Walking around Reykjavik - which is a lovely city that everyone should visit.

Tomorrow I go to Iceland! So, there's going to be a mini-hiatus here, coinciding with the actual official "end" of this blog. I'm going to post pictures of the final four days of the last year of my twenties when I'm back and - gasp - thirty. Stay tuned or maradjon velünk - ha, I'm totally finishing these posts in Icelandic from now on.

My book group got me a birthday cake! That's 'cause they are a totally awesome book group.

Rain and meletti spritzers.

Whee! Three days until I go to Iceland!

Spa-zombie of the highest order. (Also: after the spa we saw a little fluffy white mini-poodle that only walked ON ITS HIND LEGS! It hopped along with its man while on a leash and then hopped up the stairs all on its back legs. It was hilarious, moderately creepy, and fascinatingly weird.)

Figs! (This is kind of a gross picture, but they were still delicious.)

I would have had a picture of Nina Garcia, fashion editor for Marie Claire magazine (imagine me saying this in Heidi Klum's voice) but my phone bit it just as she arrived. Instead I give you Lindsey with sardines.

Italian-pride building on my block.

August 15, 2010

Sad wet books (fortunately not mine).

It was only well after I took this that I realized it's Jim Morrison. Wait, it is, right?

August 13, 2010

Friday the 13th!

August 12, 2010

It's really only a matter of time before I own this shirt. I've been pining for it for at least three years.

Bird's nest pasta (really pesto bowties with broccoli and green beans topped with a poached egg).

Happy birthday to my grandmother, Mary! (and a Banksy, or a faux-Banksy?)

August 7, 2010

My dapper ward for the evening.

August 6, 2010

Ok, so there's a little bit of cheating in this photo because I didn't actually take it. But I directed and costumed it, so it counts, right? Plus it's so awesome how could I not use it?!

The goofball abides.

This rocking chair is pretty modern looking to you, don't you think? Well guess what: it was designed and made in 1851! And this specific chair was exhibited at the 1856 Worlds Fair in London.

This post goes out to Jess and Adam who are currently living it up in Sydney. Motorino misses you and is bringing their a-game with aged mozzarella, basil and heirloom tomato pizza in the hopes of luring you back to the states as soon as possible.

Kind of lame street art, but the actual blue-green-turquoise color was fantastic!

Happy birthday to Anna! Gamba!

A visit from Tate and Dorothy - everyone should go to the Animation Block Party.

The bounty transformed.

The bounty.

Red beans and rice. My first time making it!

Happy birthday to Lindsey!

Swimming swimming then a big rainstorm and a broken train.

June 24, 2010

Bradley Beach! Swimming at 3:00 am is quite the experience (though not featured in this photo).

Now I get into the Cooper-Hewitt for free! You should come with me, I can get you in for free too!

Starn Brothers! On the roof of the Met! It kind of seems like the Met is trying to get a warm-up vibe going with their Friday night rooftop happenings, and it might actually be working: there were lots of young hipsters on the roof drinking Brooklyn Brewery Summer Ale and wearing hip sunglasses. AND I got awesome Byzantine earrings at the met shop for a ridiculously inexpensive price (since I ran out of the house after napping without remembering to put mine on).

View from my new office window.

This was at the grocery store, taped the the wall by the dairy. I'm not even sure I could provide an explanation.

Ew, New York is so gross right now (but look how this colored part of the sign lines right up with the eave of this house!).
