I think I stayed in my Thanksgiving food coma a liiittle too long, and now all I want to do is cuddle up by the fire (which I don’t have, because I live in a Manhattan apartment) and read books and watch movies. In my perfect Bubble-World, here is what I would do:
Wake up and take a shower with HOT water (really, is that so much to ask?), then stroll down to the Silver Moon Bakery for something yummy that I never treat myself to, like a croissant or brioche. And a big cup of ginger-peach tea to go with it.
Then it’s back home, and onto the sofa, with a big chenille blanket (I don’t actually have one, but this is my Bubble-World, so it doesn’t really matter).
Like most people, my book list is a mile long, but I think I’d start my morning off with Or Not by Brian Mandabach. He is a total weirdo, but very cool, and his book looks really witty and fun and easy to relate to.
I’m also reading The Other Boleyn Girl, because winter always puts me in the mood for period dramas. They’re turning it into a movie soon, so I better finish it quick. Although, I’m not sure about the movie. I like Natalie Portman, and I more-or-less like Scarlett Johansen, but (in the beginning of the book, at least) she’s supposed to be about 13—uuuuh, I don’t think so.
Speaking of movies, after all this reading I think I’ll put down the books and watch one. In my Bubble-World, nothing is better on a cozy day than watching a Jane Austen movie, like the new Pride & Prejudice with Keira Knightly. Nothing warms you up like one of the greatest love stories of all time.
I would totally watch the new Harry Potter, but I don’t think it’s out on DVD yet, damn!
In that case, maybe I’ll try another classic book-turned-movie, like To Kill A Mockingbird. If you haven’t seen and/or read it, you should. Both the book and the movie always make me cry.
After watching a heartbreaking movie, I definitely think I’d need some comfort food, and what better place to go than S’MAC, the restaurant entirely devoted to mac & cheese. That’s right folks: heaven has arrived.
Oh, and did I mention that while all this was happening in my Bubble-World, I was wearing this incredibly gorgeous $2200 chiffon dress by Alberta Ferretti? I am in love with the scalloped detailing and the colors.
Yes, a couple people were staring at me while I ate gooey macaroni and cheese in a 2000 dollar dress, and it made the cuddling-under-some-blankets part a little less comfy/cozy, but hey, that’s how I roll! haha.
