So Long, Farewell.

So I have decided to make the switch to tumblr. I am still a little unsure of it, and being the nostalgic girl that I am, I want all my posts to come over to the new page (which I might still do, ridiculous and arduous job that it will be). I am going to make an effort to bring over the best memories to my new blog www.23clementines.tumblr.com but I can't make any promises.

I think of this blog as a sort of catalog of my time here in New York, which is what I think makes me the most sad. But, onward and upward. I will miss you.

(this might be the most ridiculous post of all time, being that I have about 6 readers total, all of whom I talk to IN PERSON on a regular basis...oh, the internet)

Piglet!



Kingsford Goes to the Beach - video powered by Metacafe

The sunnyside of the street.

It is a lovely, sunny, springtime day in New York, so I went for a walk down Fifth Avenue. The cast of characters on the street were as following:

-a sea of Hasidic Jewish boys and fathers passing out flyers
-models with look books in hand
-hipster students with scarves, tote bags and ray bans
-mothers/nannies with children in those $2,000 strollers
-a sea of cute kids in multicolor tights getting out of pre-school
-the Rafiqi man making noises at me
-businessmen on lunch break with their suits unbuttoned
-bike messengers/delivery guys with their massive bike locks locked around their waists
-a flirty glance with a cute gentleman (in all likelihood a 22-year-0ld NYU student, oy.)
-miles davis on my ipod

Perfect.

GenArt Film Festival.

So I went to the GenArt Film Festival tonight. The movie was great, the short film was great, the party was great. I highly recommend, but just prepare yourself--everyone will be cooler than you.

This is what I saw, check it out:

Bahhhahahahahaa.



So this used to be my event...alas, no longer. Unfortunately I missed this getup. For non-bejeweled legging pictures, go here.

I finally made it guys.

Onto the world-famous (infamous?) ED-209 blog. Today is a great day.

Only in N.C.



Every night ends with the “jamon jam,” a sing-along for guests who want to ham it up. And of course, turn-down service in your room comes with a bag of pork rinds on your pillow.

April Fools!

Thanks Hil.

I also want to see this. John Krasinski!

Manhattan.

I watched Woody Allen's Manhattan last night and fell in love. All the places, the happenings, the relationships--it's so New York. It's what I love.

Don't you want me as a bridesmaid?

So I'm in a wedding in a few months, and I'm going to a bachelorette getaway this weekend. I made my demands clear. I will not do this:

and I plan to come to the wedding dressed like this:



My demands are simple and finite. Like the rules of hair care. Thanks Elle, my yoda of choice.
Also, Sami, I got you this. Enjoy your non-anatomically correct gift.

The small joys of working at The New School.

The following is a mass email asking who will be ordering from Spice today:

Subject: "If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?"


Zen Koans like this one are traditional Japanese folk tales that allow multiple interpretations and can help lead to great insights. They are meant to shock the mind into a state of uncertainty, a state of pure potential, a state of enlightenment.

To that noble end I offer another Koan:

"If Thursday afternoon arrives and Edwin is not in the office, does Spice Thursday still take place?"

Today we have the opportunity to once and for all solve a mystery that has befuddled the minds of office workers everywhere for ages. I leave it to each of you to look within yourself and find the answer. Whatever you decide, let me know before noon.

One of my favorite bands has a new album coming out. This is the e-mail they sent me. Too cute. Click image for single.

Cupcake art.



"Zilly Rosen and her team assemble a
5,900 cupcake mosaic of Presidents Obama and Lincoln at the Smithsonian in DC today (they had a live webcam set up). It was even cooler than it sounds, believe it or not."

Photo Grade Paper, or Did You Cheap Out on Me?

Waiter: Yeah, that's just because you're obsessed with me.

Bartender, sarcastically: Oh, yeah, right--I'm totally obsessed with you. I went to your Facebook page and downloaded all the pictures of you on there and printed them out and put them up on my wall so I could have a collage.

Waiter: That was oddly specific.

VOTE FOR ANOOP.



Otter love.

1. I want an otter.
2. I want to have a Scottish accent so I can say things like "take 'er out on a wee harness"
3. My head exploded from cuteness.

Thanks Pantone.

Another babysitting intro. Yo Gabba Gabba.

Biz's beat of the day:



Opening Credits: (I feel like I need some drugs to fully enjoy this.)

Smart Girls at the Party.

Ok, so maybe I've been babysitting too much, but I LOVE this. Positive role models for girls. Highlighting the fact that it's cool to be smart and proactive. AND I just saw the guitarist, Amy, at UCB!

Go to minute 4. I love Jesus but I drink a little too. She's a real live wire.

Tangerine Honey Pudding.

Tangerine Honey Pudding
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 pinch sea salt (1/8 teaspoon)

4 cups of lowfat milk or soymilk

1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon honey

1/2 tablespoon tangerine zest
2 cups chopped tangerines, seeded, skinned, membranes removed

Combine cornstarch, salt in medium heavy bottom pot. You will need to mix constantly. Turn on the heat to medium and slowly, mixing energetically, pour in the milk. When the liquid mixture is warm, add the honey and zest. The mixture will thicken and boil. Don't forget to keep mixing while it boils for about three more minutes or so: you are looking for an almost pudding like consistency because it will thicken some more as it cools. Turn off the heat and let cool, mixing every five minutes. Add the tangerine pieces and transfer to a glass bowl or storage jar and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
