That’s quite a headline.
The full article, which is quite sad, isn’t online – just an excerpt you can read here.
This is a selfish post from a single woman longing for a vacation who wishes more of her friends were available for fun.
It used to be pretty easy to organize a getaway with girlfriends. The biggest challenges were cost and scheduling time away from work. The former came into play more than the latter – in our twenties, none of us were “indispensable” at work – at least yet.
In the past seven days, I have:
Twisted my left ankle, hitting the deck – actually N 4th Street in Brooklyn – landing on my right, previously broken wrist.
Secured a fancy new phone for free only to realize it’s functioning at ~75% capacity (chiefly my work email isn’t loading properly. Oh that!) and has a battery life of approximately 24 minutes.
Locked myself out of my apartment, and then a few days later, thrown my keys down the trash chute. Yes, I washed my keys post-retrieval, thinking of gifts for my lovely superintendant all the while.
Told @hilarityinshoes that warm weather be damned, it was too soon for bare legs at work. And then I broke my own rule. I looked like the Before image, but maybe worse.
Do you ever get the feeling that if you could just find/do/accomplish this one thing, your life would be instantly awesome? That’s how I feel right now about finding a sofa table or console to go behind my couch like in the photo below.
The sofa table of my desires continues to elude me. I sent a private message to this Etsy seller Recycled Brooklyn asking for a quote on a custom table. No reply. My guess is that his business is that strong. Good for him, if so.
This console is nice too (and reasonably priced) but the sellers are in the DC area. Shipping would just about double the cost of the item. I’m trying to find something in the tri-State area.
In case you’re hunting for a console too, here are others I have spotted:
…and for quite a while.
Presented for your entertainment:
I’m the brunette wearing the herringbone chain.
Beauchene Skull anyone? Perhaps a toddler skull is more in your price range.
This is a real store, selling real (and replica) skulls and skeletons.
If you ever need custom taxidermy, you’ll want to make a special visit to this SoHo establishment.
What do you think – creepy or cool? It’s not my cup of tea but I’m glad it’s there.
