tater tots, socialites, san diego

was with a new friend of mine, sarah. i think i'm in love. we were wandering through the west village and while we were on our way to cabrito for guac i thought of daddy-o's. "hey, do you like tater tots? they're the best there." then she says, "can we pick up tater tots so that we can dip them in the guacamole?" um, YES, obviously, that is the only right answer here. she also makes a quick pope/pedophile joke which is something appreciate. she also said she'd sleep with a guy she wasn't attracted to but only if he were covered in cotija cheese. these are all the best ideas ever. i think she and i should get married. 

i've started bringing out my scarves and lightweight sweaters. this is really sad because 10 of my favorite dresses went unworn all summer. there's just no excuse for that. the gorgeous teal halter DVF floor length dress, the black jumper, my tophop mini. it's sad. i just did a load of laundry made up entirely of summer dresses that i won't wear again for like 9 months. again, SAD. but, silver linings! i really adore my fall wardrobe. i love leggings and boots and sweaters and scarves. i love wearing leggings as pants! there, i said it. they aren't the most attractive thing but they're so comfy. that's what fall is. fall is comfy. bring it. 

The tides are turning... if this site is not in your reader, we can't be friends. it's slowly becoming one of my favorite things on the interwebs.

a bit on turkey that i wrote for huffpo: read, retweet and like that shit!

i saw a girl wearing brown uggs, with white linen pants, through which you could see red underwear. there is so much wrong about that, i don't know where to start. i've thought about it so many times since then that i think i might be mentally scarred. what is wrong with people?!

something i wrote for esquire.

um, i maybe won this! (okay, i totally won this! horray!)

have been amazingly busy lately. helped my good friend sarah (a different one from the one mentioned above) cater a book party for nick bilton. david carr was there and called us beautiful fairies. the infamous (in some circles) julia allison was there, being just as insipid as you'd imagine her to be. foursquare founder dennis crowley was in attendance. i ran into an old acquaintance who maybe runs a website that i enjoy that i may start writing for any second? 

somebody called me a socialite today. the whole idea of that kind of boggles my mind because i think of socialites as being from new york and rich. i think he said it because i'm currently living off savings (read: not working) but if he knew what kind of background i have, moving from crappy apt to crappy apt my whole childhood, being the first person in my family to attend college, much less grad school. i've never been misread so badly...

the cuban drummer boy is in town and at the blue note all weekend. go see him if you live in nyc. he's playing with arturo sandoval, who is pretty amazing. 

colin has an all-expenses paid work trip to the san diego film festival and i'm totally crashing that. who turns down a free trip on someone else's dime? answer: NOT ME. i'm not fool. any dining suggestions for while i'm there?

So I know this is totally self-centered, but I'm so jealous. Both that you're bringing someone else to Cabrito and that you guys thought to bring tots. UGH!
