things here are moving real fast as of late. G and i are all moved into our new lil´ place and loving it, but also DYING from the heat and how incredibly hot it is up in here. we just got back from our weekend in New York, and found out that Gabriel´s baby brother Vinicius is coming to Canada very soon~Tuesday to be exact! (there will be a welcome to Canada baked good of sorts for his arrival on my list of to-do´s)
So, with that being said, we have a helluvalot of loose ends and painting/cleaning/organizing to get to before he comes. We also want to visit some friends that have missed out on our company over the last few weeks in Kitchener. (I am looking forward to a drunken night of debauchery, let me tell you)
So, anyways. Things are good and great and hot and oh my. I got attacked by a pigeon today (for real, it happened) and after that had an acupuncture appointment where i told my lady to go heavy on the needles after this whacko day.
So, New York, New York. We did a whole lotta stuff in the 2.5 days we were there. Mostly eating and food related, but all the same it was great. I will say that never again will i decide to go during an extreme heat wave that is worse than what is going down here in T. dot O right now. We literally had moments where we almost barfed/and or fainted from the crazy insaneo heat. (Especially in the subway stations). While i loved it, and we had a great time, I started to realize how much i appreciate this city, and how much ¨slower¨ it really is here in relation to the city that never sleeps. It was like the greatest level of over stimuli that i have ever witnessed in my whole life (which is obvi not the best comparison considering i rarely travel)..but still. SO much to do and see and look at and be around and watch out for and take photos of and try and know where you are going,… luckily, my husband is a rockstar and was 100% on top of all of those things, getting us around via subways (like, how confusing are the MF subways there, srsly?) Thanks, Gabriel. You are awesome. So, to name a few of the things we did (i mean ate) are: Central Park, a Hudson River bout tour where we went under the Brooklyn Bridge and saw the city from both sides and Miss Lady Liberty, Greenwich Village, Soho, 5th Avenue, the Chelsea Market, the Flower District,Madison Avenue, Times Square, Chelsea, lower East side, and on and on. We ate at the Shake Shack, Big Gay Ice Cram Shop, (complete with man in drag entertaining us in the street for our 30 person deep lineup) Kat´s Delicatessen (where Harry met Sally), Le Pain Quotidien, and lastly but most importantly, Magnolia Bakery. We also walked along the High Line, which was totally amazing and worth the sweat and parchment.
Here are a few pics for you to chew on, and with that i bid you farewell for le nuit.
