spent the day in Tulum but only got to really see Casa Violeta, because it turned out we ran into a bazillion people from New York there. holy cow it was like a scene out of La Esquina– solo con sol, arena, y el mar. ha ha aha lemme put it this way: if Ferret knew about this place, for sure he’d make a pitstop on his way home from St Barth.

lunch at Gemma. errands in midtown. early drinks at Nobu 57 (sorry but contrary to his own belief, that filipino bartender makes the shittiest margarita. nice guy, though). light dinner at A Voce – Time Warner.

i know i’ve been pretty vague lately, but i think i don’t want to ruin the surprise. believe me, even i can’t wait to see how it all turns out.

hey, if you’ve ever been a street vendor then you would totally understand a compulsive obsession with the weather and the necessity to be perfectly primed for shifts in the temperature at incremental absolute degrees.
i.e., yes there were people sporting NorthFace puffies and shearling Uggs out there on the very same day, but it’s their problem they looked ridiculous and were sweating like animals— not mine.

i’m not sure why, but a street vendor jokingly asked me if i’m a "good cop or bad cop?" — maybe because i’m wearing the colors of the NYPD.
but really if i had to choose i think i’d be ambivalent cop.

took a drive out to Seminyak, it’s like the SoHo + West Village + Meatpacking of Bali. drinks at The W, dinner at La Lucciola, drinks at Ku De Ta.
huh, just when i was seriously contemplating finally replacing my trusty tactile-keyboard-having dinosaur of a Blackberry with an iPhone, it’s good ole RIM that’s kinda kicking Apple’s ass for me these last couple days.
oh also: that title up there is really a bit of a playful misnomer, cuz obviously i’m not really very much “in motion” right now at all. i’m just sayin.
