Andrea G. has been in town. She's one of my BFF's, and she lives in Portland, OR.
If she lived in the same city as me, then she'd be my best friend probably.
I think that because she's probably the one friend who's been the most patient with me.
(And believe me, I've given her lots to be patient about.)
She modeled a shirt for me on Friday (or was it Saturday?). And then we took a photo together:
She came to NYC with a list of pizza places to eat at.
We went to one called Grimaldi's, which is located under the Brooklyn Bridge.
Well… we TRIED going to it, but apparently it's way famous because there was this long line outside the door! Total bummer. I wanted to try some of this pizza. I wanted to see what all the hubbub is about.
Maybe some other time.
I can't keep spending money like this.
I haven't sold anything in about five days—my good/steady sales just stopped all of a sudden, dunno why—so it's like I'm spending like there's some sort of cash coming in. Not the case.
I think it's because I took Friday off, too. We'll see.
Maybe today will stop this streak.
It was all right… Not the best—but mainly because I didn't really have the $ to spend on cool things I saw.
The worst part was that it was SO CROWDED.
Jesus, you could barely walk or move. It was unbearable and it made me exhausted by the time I left.
The best part was that I got to meet Debbie Stoller, the author of the Stitch 'N' Bitch books AND the co-founder/co-owner/editor-in-chief of Bust magazine.
I walked up to her and asked, "Hi, is your name Debbie?"
(I like doing that to people I want to meet.)
She was very kind and sweet. And she said she'd check out CubistLiterature.com.
I doubt it, but it was still nice to meet her anyway.
I wouldn't have learned how to knit if it weren't for her first Stitch 'N' Bitch book.
Maybe there'd be no Cubist Literature if I hadn't come across that book…
