Good morning from Spanky and Darla’s. Too bad I’m going to have zero customers today because it’s a freezing tundra tornado outside. :(

Just watched one of the twins I babysit stack five Oreo insides on top of each other and eat them by themselves, without any cookie particle whatsoever.

Almost vommed. God I love them.

I’ve cleaned up vomit here.

I’ve vomited here.

I was asleep on that sidewalk the night I turned 28.

I was a contestant on an improv dating show here and had a bicoastal love affair with the host for six months. Still one of my all-time favorite experiences in New York. Now I’m in an Improv 201 class, and can’t wait to perform on that Chelsea stage for the first time.

NYC’s Top 5 Bodega Cats: Glamorized

thisiswhyiloveny:

When you’re searching for the most charismatic bodega cat in NYC, there are three things you must keep in mind:

1. It takes far longer than you think
2. Wear sneakers
3. Strategy is everything

Bodega cats are quiet legends of this city. They’re the limber, furry dwellers of your corner convenience shop. They hunt for rats, settle languidly upon six-packs of beer, laundry detergent, and tomato sauce. And they’re also illegal. According to the NYC health code, animals in businesses proffering food or beverages are forbidden - no matter how cute.

Alas, the search for bodega cats requires a good deal of tact and, above all, collaboration. My partner in crime: Tali Blankfeld - illustrious photographer and bodega cat-admirer. Together, we spent several days across two separate seasons to uncover for you the top five bodega cats of NYC. 

Our initial strategy: be as discreet as possible, let no man know our mission. Unfortunately, this led to many hours of covertly and fruitlessly wandering into the backrooms of shops “just looking for Sprite.” So finally, we decided to be as upfront as possible, loudly exclaiming upon entry: "We’ve come for cat."

In this approach, the store owners either denied the existence of cat, or proudly ushered us to the bottom shelf of their cereal aisle/backroom, where the feline dwelled.

The result: days of adventure and our glamorous spread of the top five bodega cats across NYC. And if these photos aren’t enough… here’s a whole gallery.

Painting by Jemima Kirke via New York Times

“This is the daughter of a friend of mine. She is 6 years old and was not in the least bit uncomfortable with me painting her. Most kids aren’t, and naturally, they are actually quite bored by the process. But, what was interesting about Sasha is that she actually seemed to understand why I was painting her. She showed up in a beautiful white dress that she picked out herself, and had a lot of say in how she posed for the painting. She even helped me decide which size canvas. We really worked together on this one and took each other seriously. I was interested in her maturity and her poise.” “Sasha,” 2013


Is Jemima Kirke’s PR team working overtime right now or what? Girl is everywhere.
