I've got a weird little trip scheduled to NYC this week. I could NOT be MORE excited.
I'm trying not to overplan. Really really really trying to not overplan. This is difficult for me. I have like a whole list of things I want to do. Want to see.
When the truth is.
I really just want to pretend that I still live there. For a couple of days. A girl gets damn homesick.
Here's my shortlist.
--Clearview Beekman on 2nd Ave.
-- Fishes Eddy
-- Century 21 for new tights
-- Nine West Outlet and the store where I used to get long skirts in my old neighborhood.
and. This place. I used to walk by that store window alllll the time. Little urchin cubiclegirl with her nose pressed up against the plateglass transfixed by all the colors and glass. (sidenote: I love color glass) And I told myself that when I published a book, I'd come back and actually GO INTO the store (sidenote: big, big deal for me. going into stores. it was YEARS living in nyc before i went into tiffany's and i've STILL never been in saks. class issues much? yes.) and BUY a piece of glass.
Now. I'm gonna do it! HA! go me.
i'm suddenly really homesick.
I have to tell myself this doesn't have to be the perfect trip.
I think I just want to buy coffee from a sidewalk vendor and walk around in the morning rush hours.
there's nothing better than nyc at morning rush hour.
I'm such a cubicle geek.
