Can We Talk About Shoreditch House?
I don’t really get it but I guess it’s a hotel that’s more like a members only club in East London, except it’s not completely exclusive? The bedrooms are small, and decorated like a calm little house. The bars are whatever and the pool is nice But surely the crown jewel is the Tim Burtonesque lounge lawn, which is marvelously pseudo-suburban. Let’s visit?
Young Me/Now Me →
(via sometimesagreatnotion) I just spent a long time looking through these. They made me so happy.
hiddenballroom: It would benefit you to listen to your dear, wise mothers. Please, don’t merely succumb to the wishes of your brothers. It would be in your best interest to take a step back. It would help to take a look at one another. You need to know- do you know?- the difference between a father and a lover. Luv u, Meg White

I took myself out to dinner last night at a pretty little Vietnamese place in Soho. The food was delicious and I sat outside on a cozy patio. I wanted to treat myself to a movie at the Angelika afterward, but I found myself between shows. So I settled for wandering the streets aimlessly, looking in shop windows, and vowing to pare down my wardrobe to only the things that look like they might have...

An Education For the Blind
I feel as though I’ve been reading Atlas Shrugged for a thousand years, and I like this book, but I would also like it to end. Coincidentally, that is how I feel about a lot of things right now. I like that I have a bar where I’m friends (or friendly) with the bartender. It’s such a silly, sitcom thing, and strange for me, as I’ve never liked the idea of being a regular...

Me and Washboard Hank Down by the Schoolyard
theandrewroot: Does this picture of me in front of Washboard Hank’s house (that I just went out and took) answer your question? You better believe he has a fire alarm for a doorbell! For those who are unfamiliar with the regional phenomenon known as Washboard Hank, he is an infamous local performer of whom Stompin’ Tom Conners once said “I’d rather go deaf than listen to a full album of...
Notes From an Italian Restaurant
Hello! I am coming to you from Boom Restaurant in Soho. I’ve been on the megabus all morning and then dragged my painfully heavy duffel bag around Soho for 15 minutes trying to find a particular restaurant, which I’ve decided doesn’t exist. I look like hell I’m sure - no makeup, tshirt drenched in sweat. But this place is cute and I have a basket full of bread and some...
No Good, Very Bad
I had a rough weekend. You know, one of those weekends where you end up crying on someone else’s bathroom floor at two in the morning in nothing but a tshirt? One of those weekends where you’re past the point of “pulling it together.” The kind of weekend where you’re sunburned and tired, cradling a box of kleenex and you’re sitting with your bare ass on the...

alexieileen asked: My dream last night consisted of there being an oil-monster (Scooby Doo style) that chased me off of a dock in Alabama. So, obviously, I flew to NYC to visit you. Logical, right? We got ice cream (you had sweet cream with mini chocolate chips, and I had sweet cream with Oreos), and then got in the car with your aunt and cousin. You made fun of me because I asked if we were in Manhattan. Guess we...
