Cobraaaaa!

Well I have been busy busy busy lately.

Saturday I was excited to get out of the city for my weekend trip to Connecticut for Emily's big birthday bash. It was so much fun and it was so good to see everybody from Marist. It made me very excited for next year!

Monday I ventured over to Chelsea and the Meatpacking District to check it out. I found out their was not much to see, other then Maggie Gyllenhaal walking her baby down the street, sweet!

Tuesday I decided to get my culture on and visit the Museum of Natural History. I vaguely remember visiting it back in middle school so it was definitely time for another visit. I can't get enough of that kind of stuff. Below is a frightening conversation I had with a random lady in the "Primitive Humans" section of the museum, while we were gazing upon a life sized ice-aged man:

Random Lady: Oh my god, I had no idea monkeys were so human like!
Me: That is because that is not a monkey, it's a primitive human.
Random Lady: No, humans were created by God.

Ugh, I had to walk away.

Afterwards I met up with Kari from Marist who is interning at Calvin Klein this summer. We had dinner at the “Coffee Shop” and the food was decent. We were excited about the wait-staff who we heard consisted of bitchy yet hot models and actresses. Let me just say that they definitely delivered.



Yesterday I worked the Collette Luncheon at Indochine for Paper. We began the day by preparing gift bags that included Havaianas flip flops, Marc Jacobs condoms and pens, Altoids, a Pink Martini CD, and the June/July issue of Paper. I then helped out at the front door by giving people their seat assignments. I became a little star-struck when the Misshapes, Michael Musto, Luigi Tadini, and Richie Rich from Heatherette (among many others) had arrived. After everyone had seated I was able to chill out for a little and get my picture taken by THE COBRASNAKE! Check that off the “Life List” (well, as long as my picture is posted on the site). While people were leaving fellow intern Eloise and I handed out the gift bags to the very thankful guests. Richie Rich from Heatherette stopped to talk to us and I declared my love for his label. He then gave me his info to contact him about future work, nice!

Here are some pictures of the event courtesy of The Cobrasnake:

Ps- Eloise got the Cobrasnake guy’s number. Watch out for her as she becomes the next Cory Kennedy.

Whoa, seeing that "Kari" threw me for a loop. Anyhoo, your adventures in NYC sound exciting and I'm totally in awe of your cobrasnake stardom!
