It’s official… we official!!

IMG_0016After twenty some odd hours in the sky, rescheduling my flight from LA because of delays, and nearly losing my luggage… I arrived in town 45 minutes early. I stepped outside and tried to bum a smoke off some chick, which is odd because I don’t smoke cigarettes… She tells me she can’t help me out when some incredibly gorgeous Middle Eastern man with an accent you want to swallow dressed like he’s straight off an Italian catwalk offers me a Clove. I’ve arrived. Oh and PS… I LOVE this city. Continue reading

Come fly with me! Let’s fly! Let’s fly awaaay!!

DSCN1937NEW YORK OR BUST!!! The Biggie Smalls marathon has been in full effect from late night into the early hours of this morning. I’ve been chanting lyrics like mantras and taking myself back to my NYC vibe… hoodies, MET cards, pizza, etc.

And to all the suckers that blew me off after bathing me in empty promises of a roof and walls… you SUCK! I hope whoever moves in with you always leaves dishes in the sink and never cleans the bathroom. Oh yeah and I hope they don’t pay the rent on the time either! AND I hope they have really bad b.o.

Here’s to meeting a new mob of international party people in the middle of New York City!! I wonder how many languages I’ll learn to say ‘Publish Me!’ in?
