"We were very tired, we were very merry
We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry; And you ate an apple, and I ate a pear, From a dozen of each we had bought somewhere; And the sky went wan, and the wind came cold, And the sun rose dripping, a bucketful of gold."
- Edna St. Vincent Millay
Love to all of my little blades... I am in Greenpoint, Brookyln with my friends Jade and Andy and LOVING NYC!!!
Tonight we saw the lovely Lucy Lui in "God of Carnage" and ate a late and yummy dinner at the famed Carmine's. For lunch, I met with my editors at Pastis on 9th street and then, had the best tiramisu (which means "pick me up" in Italian!") with Alec on the upper east side -- a lovely Italian cafe -- called Via Quadrano.
And speaking of which, Jade and I began the day at an incredibly charming old school Polish Bakery in Greenpoint called, Peter Pan. Amaaaaazing chocolate cake doughnut -- and we listened to 3 old school Brooklyners who were talking like bad boys from high school.
And when one asked the rather round and friendly owner for more water, she responded, "He's like Joey -- he loves water."
I am SO inspired in this city of mine. I am home.
More to come tomorrow!!!
p.s. I may have some HUGE breakthrough news!!! I shall let you all know ASAP.
