first outdoor lunch of the season at Gemma.
yah so the big fashion talk in New York these days is all about how the C Wonder stores will be sprouting like mushrooms and Chris and Tory Burch are beefin with each other cuz C Wonder is all Tory Burch stuff at like one third the price.
so i had to go and see it for myself. and wow, it’s pretty rad.
i mean, i think it’s kinda obvious by now Tory Burch is not really my stilo but i must admit at this less expensive price point it finally all makes sense to me. so personally i think C Wonder is better. and the store is really cute.
on a semi-related note, i had no idea that Tory Burch’s ex-husband Chris Burch is now dating Monika Chiang! i used to work very briefly with Monika Chiang at Lotus and we have lots of mutual friends and whatnot cuz she also used to run Double Seven.
evidently Monika Chiang is a fashion designer now too! she even has stores and stuff.
anyhow my point is: first there was Marja Allen and then there was Shala Monroque and now there is Monika Chiang. so aside from yours truly, there are currently at least three lovely ladies with whom i’m acquainted who have gone on from the F&B/Nightlife industry to land them some baller big money moguls. cha ching!
haa, now i feel like i don’t even have to bother writing the last chapter of my upcoming book, PX Me – The Sequel to PX This (How I Became a Published Author, Got Micro-Famous, and Married a Millionaire.
maybe just re-read PX This instead! goddamn.
ha ha ha ha ahaa and to think there was a time Moms would get all up in my face for “not using” my Economics degree and “wasting” all my time in these “stupid places.”
snap snap who’s WASTING TIME NOW, bitches?
oh right, i am.

it’s probably obvious but i stole this coat from a man. a pretty big person.

yah so, remember that @pxthis Twitter handle i gave you? ha ha ahaa well forget about it, never mind. the “social media manager” (who was in charge of that account) and i have uhh parted ways, sigh. and i am still trying to figure out Twitter myself, so as of yet i have no idea what to do with that thing.
feel free to “follow” my twits @abbe_diaz if you like. but i actually don’t really say much, sorry.
drinks meeting at The Standard East Village. dinner at Acme.
px this to ________, __________
2:55 PM (23 hours ago)
well it has taken me all these days to muster up the energy to respond to this email, and even after spending a long weekend in the sun, sand, and ocean, i still don’t have any.
but okay, this is what i think
- it sucks.
- the last time i heard a producer/actor say this project will be delayed "for a couple months" to go off somewhere and do a theatre play, it was 2008.
- in that interim of "a couple months" i also lost a DP and then two writers. and then a second producer and a second DP. and now apparently a third producer and lead actor. so it’s almost laughable this idea that a cast/crew assembled in April will still be available in June.
- like e.g., _________ is not going to audition for the next few months? i am so shur.
- _________ will ________ in the Spring. by June it will only be available overnight for shooting, not mornings and early afternoons.
- sorry but i must say this is really starting to irritate the ever living shit out of me.
congratulations, bon voyage, and break a leg.
p.s. and if you think it makes me happy that you got a role someplace else with my fucking haircut, oh it so does not.
