Did you forget about us?

12 11 2008

Hello darlings! Hopefully you didn’t forget about your two favorite girls with great taste…. I know, I know. We’ve been on hiatus, but I am back… for a little while at least, Suz still has some grad school applications to take care of. I have been caught up in a whirlwind of parties, vacation, fabulous friends and love affairs that resulted in 1) a slightly more damaged liver (yeah, and who thought that could happen?), 2) more confidence in flirtation, 3) a friendship tattoo, and last, but not least 4) a Thanksgiving trip to St. Croix.

That’s right, I’m going to the Caribbean for Thanksgiving.

I’m still pinching myself in disbelief, and also astonished that my pasty ass is going to have to get in a bikini in two weeks.

So how did this whole trip come to be?

Well… While my fabulous friend Russel was in town from Dallas (who’s NYC cherry I officially popped)… Hmm, bad way to start this… So backstory: One of my best friends, Russel, whom is one of the most individual characters on this planet and I hold very dearly to my heart, came to visit me and NYC about two weeks ago and stayed for a week. He had never been here before and we crammed as many touristy, and locals-only, things as possible into his trip. One day before Russel had to leave we had a day full of shopping and sightseeing and we had planned a wine & cheese night for later that evening at my house with the guests being Suz, Dan and a friend of Russel’s, Trish.

We stop in at one of my two neighborhood bars, Kings County. Probably the best decision I made all day considering what happened as a result of it. I gave a gentleman, who happens to live in St. Croix (but is originally from Iowa) but was just visiting, my phone number and the rest is history. We spent the few days he had left in New York together and he invited me to the Virgin Islands for Thanksgiving. So I bought a ticket, and now I’m going.

Jealous much?

Hope you’re all having a great Wednesday, and keep checking back in for more updates spawned from my boredom at work.

❤ Kiki

Obama Bacon

29 10 2008

I apologize for the brain cells you’re about to lose by watching this:

On the topic of bacon…

1. Donuts and Bacon 08 (Click on the pic for more info)

2. Baconnaise… because why not? Oh, and thankfully it’s vegetarian. (Insert gratuitous eye-roll here)

And, last but not least…

3. Bacon Chocolate. I have actually had the pleasure of trying this. I know it sounds nasty, but the fat-kid inside of you is begging to try it.

It’s by Vosges Chocolate and they just happen to have boutiques here in New York! I’ve  tried some of their other chocolates and they are to die for.

And I just found this… this is just messed up:

That’s their Flying Pig (which is comprised of their bacon chocolate)… does it really need to be flying towards bacon? Anyway…

Muck: New Handset Font

29 10 2008

YouWorkForThem just made a f’ing fabulous handset font. I am thoroughly impressed, and I wish I could rub these letters all over myself. As you can tell, my love for letters has now become lustful. And I am not ashamed to admit it.

And saving the best for last:

To see how these lovelies were made, check out the You Work For Them blog.

This site that Thrillist just found for me is absolutely amazing!!! I love places that are open 24 hours… and I love that they actually have places in my neighborhood of Bushwick. It’s a rarity to see things actually listed on the internet around there. To check it out, click on the picture!





Uniqlo Human Vending Machine

28 10 2008

Holy Crap.

I stole this from You Work For Them:

As if Reason #4123 Uniqlock wasn’t enough, my favorite fashion brand has gone even further by giving away FREE clothes in NYC this November by way of Human Vending Machines! A Uniqlo rep describes it as such, “Basically we’re going to have two mimes. A male and a female mime inside the machine. And the public can see them through glass. When you get there, we’re going to have Uniqlo reps dressed in the silver bodysuits. And they’re going to hold a thermograph scanner — think of an airport security machine. The thermographer identifies cold spots in your body. After you go through that, you go to the vending machine and push a button and the mimes are going to do a synchronized choreographed routine and then your outfit comes out.” Check out the post on NewYork Mag for more details.

Again… Holy Crap.
