My So-Called, Upcoming Life

I snagged Arcade Fire tickets. I am a GOD! I will sell them for nothing less than a golden idol and the blood of your first born…sorry dude with plot of land (is he for real?).

Blasphemy aside, I’m really excited for the next few months. I’ve got the following concerts to look forward to: Ratatat, CSS, The Decemberists and Grizzly Bear.

I figure if I’m leaving this city, I’m going to do up my last months/year with style.

Credit-card-melting-style.

Tonight a novelista-in-training-girl-date at The Little Owl and next week, a "needed"-by-specious-reasoning-but-very-much-lusted-after week in St. Maarten . Have any of you been? I’m ashamed to say my Caribbean experience thus far has been split between a Carnival cruise and an all-inclusive resort—suffice it to say both consisted of alcoholic Hawaiian Punch concoctions and periodic screaming of “Sprink Breaaaak!” while tripping into a pool so this agenda (quiet sunbathing, notebook-scribbling, Daiquiri-mixing, cabana-sprawling) is going to be a relatively new one for me and I'm dying for suggestions in the area.

This is not my life, not really, yet it’s always fun to moonlight. As though any of this is business as usual; it helps distract me from the 200 pages I need to revise and the 200 pages I need to write to complete my novel…which I’ve promised myself will be finished by the end of the summer (and if I say that and it’s not finished by this summer I can always default to, hey I never specified which summer…I meant the summer of 2012…yeah, yeah…2012).

I'd rethink little owl. I was not impressed. At all. Let me know if you like it. I found it mediocre at best.

Hi Stephanie,

Is it gauche to like it? I kind of did! The crispy chicken was amazing and after a half bottle, I really enjoyed the raspberry beignets. Can't beat that ATTIDUDE there though. Boy oh boy, you'd think it was in previews instead of over a year old or something...

On St. Martin, spend an afternoon (or two) on the Isle Pinlet (or something like that). It is this tiny sandspit of an island where you take a little 5 minute boat trip, then you rent a chair and swim topless, then feast on fresh grilled lobster and river shrimp and wine. It totally made our trip there.

I wanna go to the Carribbean. Can you put me in your suitcase? You'd be surprised at the small spaces I can cram myself into.
