August 5 08

two words (and they may be an overshare here): gut rot. (i’m going to go with dehydration. four days of walking from morning until night and not enough to drink. unless you count iced coffees…and i don’t think you can)

six more words: banana republic outlet bag gone missing. (boo!)

my post-trip karma is back, friends.

the husband and kids are safely at my mom’s house. according to my saintly husband, all three kids were angels in the car and angels on the very windy ferry…

(kiss.kiss.kiss. miss them)

my trip was amazing, though. i never get to spend any alone time with my sister and it was just perfect. she and i are molded the same. if you disregard the fact that we look NOTHING alike…we think the same. i can’t even tell you how many time we’d meet up at the dressing rooms at a store and were trying on the.exact.same.things. (cue the twilight zone music)

we went to try the Crumbs cupcake…

was only meh.

we stalked a movie being filmed (ps. it’s called Four Single Fathers)…you may catch me in it, since we loitered around the hot dog cart for hours. and we chatted with the poor man who got paid $400 for them to steal his cart for the day.

mostly we stayed because the Italian actor was VERY handsome. a rugged WAY better version of Benicio del Toro.

we loved on Connie Chung:

i swear, i NEED to have this cat. she looks JUST like gizmo

and we took touristy pictures

we had the best time.

i’m already looking into tickets for my next trip. there are still things i need to do…like replace all my banana republic purchases that i can only assume are sitting at the bottom of my sister’s garbage chute.

who’s coming next time??

  1. I’m in!
    If only to see a cat named Connie Chung.
    I have a friend who has a tiny little barky dog that is named Bob Barker.

  7. You do not have to twist my arm. Count me in.

    We got the same “I heart SF” shirt to match our “I heart NY shirt”. I should research to see if they heave “I love OH” shirts. Probably not.

  9. I’ll come!!
    I’d really like that cupcake please.

    And am I the only person on the planet that doesn’t find Benicio Del Toro attractive? He looks like a gray haired vulture.

  11. I’ve never been, but I’d go in a heartbeat, especially if there was time spent with cats that look like Connie Chung AND either hunky dudes or cupcakes with tons of frosting. That last part is a toss up!

  12. Me, me, pick me, me! I need to go back–I still have a ton of stuff in storage at my old apartment that I’m sure my ex-roomies are just thrilled about =)

    P.S. I absolutely love animals that are named after celebs–Connie Chung, hilarious! Comparable to Paul Anka on Gilmore Girls (tell me you watched Gilmore Girls so I can cement the fact that we were separated at birth! Also, how was You Belong to Me???).

  15. Maybe your bag will show up…I’m terrible to travel with AND I whine a lot AND I throw up easily. So. Probably not me, eh?

  20. Gosh Dangit woman, I told you to buzz me and AndreAnna the next time you hauled your fine ass to NYC! That’s it, we’re coming on a road trip to Toronto now.
    And you have to get your cupcakes at Billy’s Bakery. And I’m in with the Maitre D at Buddakan.

  21. OK, that cat is ridiculous!

  22. My brother in law swears that Crumbs are the best cupcakes in New York.
    I tried them and swore never to trust his food taste again.
    I will never sway from Billy’s again, unless, of course, it’s at Sugar Sweet Sunshine, which is on my walk home from work every day. What’s a girl to do?

  23. The cupcake looks like it should rock … what a downer :(

  24. Oh I am so sad about your BR bag!!! And that the luscious looking cupcake wasn’t all that. But, I saw your tweet about Magnolia and I wasn’t impressed with them, at all.

    Isn’t it cool when our loved ones live in fun places? I’m seeing the bf in San Diego this weekend and I can.not.wait.

  27. I’m so in!!

    Sorry about the Banana bag – that’s a tragedy :-( It happened to me once at the J.Crew outlet and I’ve never recovered. I needed that tweed blazer, damnit.

    Anyways, I’m glad you had so much fun – I’m jealous!!
