Back on home soil. Post NYC travel/let-me-wallow-in-my-own-misery style pieces to follow. For now here are some flowers! They were my welcome home pressie. Nothing says welcome home like wildflowers, I have decided.

Spending days off work in East Village, thrifting, drinking yummy cheap beer pitchers and eating falafel. Mamoun's in St Mark's Place has a pretty sweet deal going of a falafel sandwich for 3 dollars, and its fresh and divine and I currently DREAM of another.
I am filled with regret because I didn't buy the sequined jacket pictured below (I love that this is my main source of woe?!?) Priorities. Instead I bought a silk shirt from the same store, a pretty excellent Buffalo Exchange on E 11th St, between 1st and 2nd Ave. It has a fruit salad pattern on it and I love it!
Urban Outfitters here is so much better than at home- next pay cheque is going on this snap-back. I satisfied my hat cravings with a few indulgent selfies for now.

Sorry, but not sorry for the embarrassing blog post name. I saw 'New York- WONDER CITY' on an old poster the other day and it sums up how much I love it here quite nicely. So. I've been here 12 days thus far and there's so much I want to go and see and I really want to use this as a forum to make lists of things to do and document everything done. I really feel like I deserve and need an iphone in this city, I actually just want to photograph/write down everything.
I got a few job offers (I write smugly) and I decided to take on one for the mo- I shall be working in a café on 5th Avenue. SHAAZZAM. It has nice hours so I will be able to sight-see! And I get to say forevermore that I worked on 5th Avenue! Ooooh ounds so gerd.

Just watched Psycho. Still scary. Let the violins shriek!
"Do you know what I do about unhappiness? I buy it off. Are you unhappy?"
"I hear the expression 'eats like a bird'- it's really a falsity. Because birds really eat a tremendous lot."
"Why, she wouldn't even harm a fly."
