Lots to look forward to these days- im REALLY eexcited for my DC trip this weekend. Me, Sarah, Alex and Rachel are going to Eric Ripert (of le Bernadin in NYC fame) DC restaurant WestEnd bistro at the RItz. I think i might stay away from the entrees and stick with the delish sounding soups, salads and sides. A full report on that will be coming…
We also bought tix for THE DARK KNIGHT on Saturday in Gtown. thats all i need to say about that…
Joy will be joining us for dinner and partying saturday night.
The week after, lauren ardizzone and i will be going to NY’s Resaurant week AND MoMA for a lesbian day of fun.
then that WEEKEND chris and i run the half marathon! i feel really strong and have been training well so i think i can expect a good run. we did our 12 miler on sunday and i felt great.
i need to buy chris a bday present for his bday on aug 4th…

Casual smart are the key words. We encourage our guest to ‘dress up, not down.’12:52 PM so, if you can dress up your jeans outfit, do that it doesnt say you cant wear jeans Chris: what about sandals? probably not, right? me: i think as long as you have ‘the look’ you will be ok Chris: ugh this is complete douchbaggery me: just tell them you are in Fall Out Boy hahaha tell them you ARE fall out boy 12:53 PM Chris: i’m going to tell them to suck my fucking dick with their facist dress code me: c’mon dont be lame Chris: jenn why are you doing this to me you know i cant STAND places like this me: you get to dress down 364 days of the year Chris: there are 10000000000 bars in nyc Chris: why do we have to go to this dildo convention me: you can do it for me ONE night 12:54 PM bc its a cool setting Chris: look, can i wear sandals or not me: i promise we can go to the seediest bar after Chris: my whole look depends on me being able to wear sandals me: i got to all the hole in the wall bars want me to call?

Just when i thought i couldnt spend ANY more money…they just put in a whole foods in Tribeca, about 1 block from chris’s place. its so dangerous. unlike the WF in Union Sq, Columbus circle, it wont be as insanely packed and hard to travel to. i spent $40 on - 1 small soup, 1 salad, 2 ‘antipasto bar’ selection (filled two things with olives, artichoke hearts, corinchinos, marinated beans) 1 bottle of beer. (an $8.99) hitachino next wisse. and 2 seltzer waters.
last night i said ‘this is a ONCE A WEEK thing” but alreadyi want to go back tonight…..
its amazing lauren, they have a sushi/bento box kiosk, a pizza bar, a make your own taco station…
overheard by the ‘schwarma bar’ at whole foods.: “i ran into leo dicaprio the other day, he just got a new car, its quite shiek’ — there is this “Green Condo” right by there that leo has a place at…they were talking as if they were buddies with him.
Saw this movie yesterday. it was decent. a good thriller- Ebert LOVED it. Ethan Hawke and Phillip Seymore Awesome and Marisa Tomei (who is probably 45 but loosk 25- bare naked and all) and ALbert Finney aka Daddy Warbucks in my favorite childhood flick, Annie. The most startling thing about this movie, is the director, directed some of my favorite films, including Dog Day Afternoon.
This movie scared chris bc it shows what happens when you are a deperate deadbeat. i had to assure chris he would never be a deadbeat. in fact i told chris: YOU WILL NEVER DARE BE A DEADBEAT.
Im going to go to DC in two weeks just for the heck of it. It’s Rachel Safran’s bday and Sandi wont take the lsat till July 31 and i cant wait that long bc i have a wedding on Aug 2…so im just going ot go down with chris when he has this animal rights conference there in a couple weeks. i made sarah promise we’d be foodies and go see batman and go to java green.
