New York, November 8, 2009

it was a really amazingly beautiful day in NYC so i tried to make the most of it.  spent the day roaming around the Bowery and Soho and managed to catch the Urs Fischer exhibit at the New Museum.  i'd recommend seeing it just to have the chance to see art in that non traditional setting.  it's sometimes good to see work that way - you realize that there can be art beyond the canvas and wall space.  and on a superficial sidenote, i picked up some cool Elizabeth Peyton buttons from the gift shop which i'll make a point to display on my jacket lapel from now on.
it was also a really great day for people sighting - they all kinda came out of the woodwork.  perhaps the highlight was seeing Ms. Grace Coddington sweep past the lunch crowd of Veselka (and i thinks she might've noticed me mouth quite excitedly "OMG that is Grace Coddington!" like an awestruck groupie).  all in all a good day.  even though NYC can beat and grind you into a mindless, workaholic wreck all week, she can still manage to turn on the charm and beauty and just bring you all back into her arms.  i guess what more can you ask for?
