Sick And The City

A bottle of wine and a lemon prawn risotto do not a hangover make. Nor do they lead the way to food poisoning. They were just mere coincidences on my path to a tummy bug. Oh the joy.

Being sick isn't as fun as it was as a kid. Magical daytime TV ceased to exist after the age of what, 12?, so I am halfway into the third season of Sex And The City. It's a bit of overload, a season a day, although it's so nice to see episodes I never saw before and relive the fashion joys. Dolce E Gabbana. I immediately fell back in love with Domenico and Stefano so if you see a cheap denim corset, let me know. And the hair. Carrie's hair. It's fabulous. So thick and curly and highlighted and then straight and then wavy and up in a bun and down and beautiful. I love the short shag to come but the early years are gorgeous.

Jules once did a post on the advantages of being single vs being in a relationship, and many were dismissed as things that you could still do a couple. Well, here are two that are non-negotiably in the pro column:

* You can shower until the water goes cold.
* You can be sick and grumbly and leave crumbs everywhere and rush to the bathroom whenever you need to without any issues. Believe me, it's an under-rated pro.

Oh and I have the biggest craving to go back to New York. The SATC boxset should come with a flight voucher or something. I want to eat cupcakes and go vintage shopping and go to a dayspa and picnic in Central Park after spending the morning at the Frick and have a romantic kiss amidst the skyscrapers.

On the way back I would fly through London and dine at Sketch.

Oh, it's so good to see you, my dear!!!! I was worried about you.

Season Four is my favorite season; maybe that will perk you up tomorrow....and I do love her hair, though you know her shortcut is my fave.

Cupcakes. New York. Dolce Dolce Dolce. Oh my!

Sounds like the perfect NYC day!

Just looking at my credit card charges from my US trip. Lots of shopping. Should have stopped for a cupcake when I was in NYC though. And found a boy worth kissing. Hmmm... all good reasons to go back on another trip.

Yes you should come back to NYC! But only if I can join you. Cupcakes + vintage shopping = the Perfect Day!

(ps, you are absolutely in for the Cupcake I can officially call it the Cupcake World Tour as it has some international flair!)
