Best in Town

"Aren't you supposed to be in Brazil looking for an exotic fish to eat?"

Best Friend was in New York this week! The nights were a little longer and waking up in the morning was a little tougher. I spent the scant free time I had with her, eating Blueys from Ruby's on Mulberry and Oasis falafel sandwiches, having memorable dance parties at the Guggenheim and "The Rub," as well as the most incredible comfort food farewell at Blue Ribbon.

This is the same girl that teamed up with me in (regrettable) door fights with Gordis (trying to keep her out of my bedroom at age 11 or so), choreographed terrible and wonderful house music hits, and with whom I faked British accents at the Fox Hills Mall, despite telling people we were from Spain. She introduced me to the wonderful world of Gushers fruit snacks, Beverly Hills 90210 and New Kids on the Block, cultural phenomena that were somehow unbeknownst to me. In return, I informed her about Teen Witch and the owl girl movie They (starring Vanessa Redgrave), both frequent HBO specials from 1995-1997. Side by side and wide-eyed, we memorized Batty's rap in Fern Gully: The Last Rainforest (we let Gordis in on that one). We feared the end of the world together after our 7th grade teacher, Mrs. Francis, taught us about Nostradamus and his ominous prophecies, and took great pride in walking to the liquor store on Arbor Vitae by ourselves in 8th grade so that we could buy Flaming Hot Lays and sour straws.

Although I couldn't share much of the daylight with her, knowing she was in the same city brightened my workdays!

About Me

My photo
I'm an LA transplant now living in Brooklyn. I develop film projects by day, write at night, and have a dangerous predilection for vintage Robinson Golluber scarves- this blog serves as a tiny window to everything else I do when I'm not satisfying those first three passions. I'm trying to blog more and tweet less @annabelleqv. What about you?
