omylord if you could only hear the incessant jackhammering on TWO sides of my building simultaneously right now, i can’t even hear myself think about killing myself. it’s been going on since 8:00 AM for about the past week now. it’s inhuman, it really is.
and Bloomberg has the fucking unmitigated gall to sic the community boards on restaurants and outdoor cafes for all the troublesome noise they impose on the neighborhoods they’re gentrifying and raising property values in. 311 this, you nasally munchkin dikksukking mutherfukker.

i give up. i mean, not that i’m complaining about the gorgeous weather or anything, but really– what the hell is one supposed to do when it’s 85° in October. just enjoy it and not waste it contemplating what the hells to wear, that’s what.

ohhh, well hello there, beauties! come on in, make yourselves at home! :)
anyways, last night was dinner at Crown and then the premiere party for the Limelight documentary at Westway. apparently Westway is this old strip club that was taken over by a couple of promoters or something, but it doesn’t look like they did any renovations to it or anything. or maybe they did, and it’s just supposed to look busted. well anyhow my point is: the irony of celebrating the legendary Limelight in a venue like this (which evidently also hosted the Valentino Garavani party i mentioned last week) wasn’t entirely lost on some of us Limelight/Tunnel/Palladium/USA veterans. myyy how nightlife has changed.

"Designer, writer and insider Abbe Diaz, recounted her experiences in the fashion world in her book PX This – Diary of the Maitre d’ to the Stars… [and] shared this run-in with designer Ann Demeulmeester:
‘[She] was a bit creepy to me for absolutely no reason at all, we go to her showroom and Marc [Bagutta] introduces me to her as his girlfriend and then he mentions how I am helping him with the buying (taking all the notes and shit). And she suddenly busts out with ‘Yes, you have to put them to work, otherwise they just spend all your money.’" – from "Is the Fashion Industry a Gay Man’s World?" at thegrindstone.com
ha ha ahaa Happy Fashion Week! :)

Standard Grill again cuz we happened to be right in the area. there’s an older guy on an antique bicycle who stakes the joint out for susceptible-looking ladies and then tries to pick them up with some line about "making a movie in the area." he must make his rounds to a few different places, cuz we watched him come and go three separate times in the span of about three hours. one of his other ploys is to roll up and cop a squat very nearby and then pretend to use his cell phone within earshot of his prey. we were too far away to hear him that time, but judging by the way his victim rolled her eyes up into her forehead (and then gathered up her purse and walked away), we imagined his phone "conversation" probably consisted of something along the lines of "well if Brad isn’t available for ten million then call George Clooney, he owes me a favor!" ha ha ha ha aha.

well, my big heavy 7+ pound 2006 15" Intel CoreDuo MacBook Pro is hereby officially five years old, so now i feel like i can finally justify the purchase of the 2G 11" MacBook Air i’ve been wanting for a couple years now (despite also having an iPad 2, as well as the– ahem– 1st generation iPad i ostensibly "handed down" to sweetie). yay!
i love it, it’s dope.
