Day 60.

is it possible to gain 15lbs in 2 days?
because i think it happened

eliza minnelli decided that she was tired of being around me
(hahaha obiviously not possible)
and went to michegan on thursday

i would have been lonely all by myself
and its scary sleeping alone so
kelly k and case daws came to visit me (ahh so exciting!)

they got in around midnight
we did the only thing there is to do at such a time,
watch a movie and hit the hay.
(and then you realize i'm joking)
we went out, silly

we might have done more walking than drinking
but then again we had to burn some calories before
we devoured some very yummy late night/early morning pizza (pizza > street hotdog)

we woke up and it was sat-er-day
and since we were awake we were in search of
nothing other than, food
we walked over toward soho
kelly k remebered (as we were entering another restaurant) a good place to eat
so we went there
I forgot the name
and it was scrumptious

after that we wandered around checking out all the cool things
soho and les had to offer
we were about to go to the MoMA when
nat the fat rat instagramed a picture of banna pudding from magnolia's bakery
and because we love banna pudding (& might be stalkers)
we went on up to magnolia bakery to get us some banna puddin'
and a cupcake for kk
we didn't see nat the fat rat
not that we were looking for here
but case and kel got to see west village
which happens to be my favorite neighborhood

somehow we ended up going to meatpacking
its a neighborhood
not a place were they pack meat
but im sure you can guess where the name came from

it's always fun to go up there because
you really feel like you are in a different place.
it's new, hip, trendy, and on the water
oh and not that crowded

looking up at this post i feel like i'm writing a poem, then i realize nothing rhymes
all poems rhyme

to make a long story short because this is turning into a long story
we went to the MoMA
decided not to wander the MoMA
it started pouring rain
we tried to wait out the rain
ran in the rain to the subway
had the best mexi meal ever at la palapa 
went out

and that was saturday
on sunday we actually did go to the MoMA (and wandered)
until we got bored so we went and 
had a concrete from shake shack 
don't worry we all got our own

we then began a hunt for the best burger
(ignore we where at a burger place)
we not only found some pretty wonderful hamburger sliders
but some more wonderful cheese fries at mark burger

we then had sangria downstairs before they left me forever
and by forever i mean 3 weeks

i don't like how long this post is, too many words, just look at the pictures

(case is going to kill me for this, oops)

Day 47.

while living in ny we have begun to realize the little details that set city live apart from cola life.
beyond the obvious things such as taxis, lots of people, or constant construction
but the things you have to mentally prepare and adjust for.

so here's a little game called In SC, But In NY

1. in sc we talk on the phone when traveling from one place to the other, but in ny we are underground thus no cell phone service. (hello, ibooks. goodbye, calling people back.)

2. in sc we have dollar bourbon, but in ny we have dollar pizza slices

3. in sc when grocery shopping we pack our buggies full with no concern of weight bc you just push the buggy to the car and drive home, but in ny each item's importance is considered and hand selected since it has to be carried 7 blocks in 100 degree heat.

4. in sc we only share a bed after a long football game, but in ny we share a bed every night

5. in sc we put laundry in the washer/dryer and have fresh clean clothes in 2 hours max, but in ny we put all 3 weeks worth of our clothes in a bag, call washer people to pick up, people pick up, realize you sent off all your towels, work, & workout clothes needed for the next day, get clothes delivered back 24 hrs later.  (we haven't decided how to handle the whole no towel issue)

6. in sc we sir/ma'am, but in ny we don't (just joking i still do that)

and thats all i have to say about that.

Day 37.

today. today is saturday.
we like saturdays. 

on saturdays there is no alarm clocks. (eliza tends to sleep till 1)
on saturdays there are no plans.
on saturdays the next day will still be the weekend.
on saturdays, well, you get the point.
we like saturdays.

so on this saturday while the slizanator was still sleeping
i walked down to a coffee place, the bean, to test there so called tasty coffee.
upon walking out of the door to get said coffee
i was slapped in the face with some good ole concrete melting heat.
after walking the 4 blocks to the bean i had begun to reconsider anything hot
but they had this really cool sounding thing called a dirty chai
so i got an iced dirty chai (chai + espresso)
and drank it all on the walk home.

eliza finally woke up and we decided that food was a must
[insert] Bobwhite Counter.
it was rumored to be the best southern food in town. 
fried chicken, collards, mac&cheese, ya know, the staples
but what really was pulling us towards this place was the grilled pimento cheese sandwich
of course, sweet tea was an added bonus
we ended up ordering the pimento cheese sandwich
and a grilled chicken salad sandwich to split because 
we simply couldn't decide which one sounded better so we split 'em
and they were both simply wonderful

and that was the highlight of our too hot to do anything besides sit in front of the ac saturday.

actually, eliza's highlight might be the fact that charlie's angels was on tv when we got back.

Day 33.

do you want to know what the best part of june was?
every time i would make a blog post title
(those few times)
all i had to do is look at the date but now, now, i have to actually do math
and i don't like it.

but anyway,
sammy and shane came and visited/took over our massive apartment last week.
it was a lot of fun and really really hot.
sliza and i had to work thursday and friday so shane and sammy would do a tourist thing, go sit in a bar, do a tourist thing, go sit in a bar (and repeat until liz got off work)
they said it was because it was so hot out but lets be honest we know y'all would have done that even if the weather was perfect, it would have just been an outdoor bar.
we went to a yankees game (i decided i still don't like baseball) on saturday, i think the yankees won which is a plus.
i wish that dumb roommate would blog considering she likes sports and this is her sister we are talking about.

and thats all i have to say about that.

goodnews: NO WORK TOMORROW!! (happy america day)
