On The Way Out

Filed under: California, New York, Travel — Elle @ 3:23 pm

Currently sitting in a too-nice, too-expensive Tribeca studio, where I’m temporarily crashing post-Long Island. Cece left this morning at dawn and I’m following suit tomorrow at 4:30pm, flying from JFK to Long Beach.

It’s been a pretty fantastic 13 weeks — I’ll wax nostalgic once I’m near the Pacific again. In the meantime, I’m spending my last 24 hours doing a few of my favorite things: shopping at Henri Bendel and Beacon’s Closet, having sushi for dinner, boozing (of course), brunching with Jules, and … taking care of my new piercings. Ended up getting two out of five — decided to skip getting second lobe piercings.

Estimated time of arrival to my dearly beloved California is 7:30pm PST. For now … peace, kids. I’m going shopping.

My Cell Phone Died

Filed under: Personal, i am about as competent as a small child — Elle August 28, 2007 @ 9:01 pm

Or more accurately, I killed it … by dropping the damn thing into the foot basin during my pedicure today. I tried blowdrying it, but I wasn’t as lucky as CK’s boyfriend who salvaged my Powerbook frosh year with that method. And I have Verizon so I can’t just pop the SIM card into a new phone.

This is terrible timing, especially considering the number of people I’m supposed to see before I leave the city on Saturday. I’ve already missed three text messages, two phone calls, and one date because of my phone. Eep!

For those trying to get in touch, please email or IM me. I’ll be on a new phone (and in California) by Sunday.

On the bright side, my toes look cute?

Facebook Her: Dr. Ruth Westheimer

Earlier this summer, I was a student correspondent for a webisode of mtvU’s new show Sex Cred, hosted by Dr. Ruth. I was happily surprised to see the following on Facebook today:

If you’re on Facebook (and I know most of you are) and have an interest in sex (and I know most of you do), then add this woman pronto. The show debuts on mtvU on September 3rd.
