A Weekend All by Myself

It’s been a while, but this past weekend, I had plenty of time to catch up with moi-self.

I went on a run with my running partner, Shelley. She nonchalantly told me that she is meeting Anna Wintour, chief-editor of Vogue. ANNA WINTOUR! VOGUE! OMG, OMG, OMG!!! That’s what was going on in my head, although I was quite subtle in my demeanor.

Some of us can talk about their exciting upcoming meeting with a fashion icon, and some of us can only talk about their last pig out session. But c’est la vie.
Anyhow, Shelley told me about going to the Armory Show, an annual art show that this year brought 150 galleries from all over the world featuring “new art by living artists.” It was a long ways to pier 94. It was a nice day though, and I enjoyed the long walk (my favorite pieces are at the bottom of this post).

On my way back, I had a Brazilian meal at Rice ‘n’ Beans. It was very good and authentic.

The rest of the weekend was spent cleaning and window shopping. So nice!
