Seva Sensational

ElsieQ is here! And whenever she visits, inevitably the first thing that happens is we order take out from our absolute favorite local Indian restaurant. Last night, though, we got a little carried away:

In our defense, there were eight of us ordering. And it was deeeeeelicious!

The View from Two Feet Up

While driving up the coast this summer, Elsie Q and I met a 20 year old Dutch guy named Halbe. He joined us on the road from San Luis Obispo to Monterey. We had a great time together, and it was really sad to say goodbye.

Two weeks ago, Halbe emailed me to tell me that he and his older brother were coming to NYC for holiday, and could they stay with me?

Of course.

So, that's how I've come to have two very tall Dutch men sleeping on air matresses in my kitchen since Wednesday.


I've sort of spent the past few days feeling like I'm shrinking.

Other than that, having the Dutchmen around has been totally fantastic and I'm sad to see them ago.

Of course, we had to send them off in style with an impromptu 29th Street dinner party which included fajitas with massive amounts of toppings, a variety of seasonal beers, Karrie impulsively deep frying pickles, and Mikey D contemplating if his distended stomach could be atttributed to pregnancy or just a food baby.



Good times, good times. Next up, Holland!

On the phone with Palma:

"I'm just stressed"
"You're always stressed"
"I know. It's ridiculous"

I think that my body does not know how to operate without stressing out about something. And if there is nothing legitimate to stress about, then I either make something up or create stress for myself.

This week, I foolishly agreed to write a story for a NYC-based magazine. It's something I pitched to them a few months back, but never really followed up on. Last week they contacted me to say they were still interested in the story... and could I have it done in a week?

Of course, I say "Sure!"

What a moron.

Anyways, I took some pics of new pieces today. Here's a few:

Metal Love

I'm digging these new silver and gold-fill pendants. I hope customers like them too...
