Corner of 2nd Avenue and 6th Street
Beware of the mishmash below, there is no one dominant theme.
I have one week left in New York before I head off to the Jersey shore for a couple of days to do some very intense writing (and then off home via Budapest and London). The only good thing about leaving New York is that I think I would go broke here because of the shopping sales. Also, because it's so cold, all I do is walk into every second shop to warm up. And then I see something I like. And then I tell myself that I really need it. And that I will never find it for that price at home. And the cycle of abuse on my funds continues.
I'm beginning to psych myself up about going home and these are the things I miss most about it.
1. Luca and Daniel Donovan (and obviously the rest of my family and friends but too many to list)
2. Jasper, my dog (dogs are proof that there is a God)
3. The weather Sydney was having a couple of weeks ago (Low 20s - I will stop the weather obsession soon)
4. Surry Hills
5. Good coffee (I know I've said it before, but if they're the leaders of the Western World why haven't they mastered the espresso?)
I will miss the food here, especially the eggs at Cafe Orlin, anything at Thailand Cafe on Second Avenue and this fantastic chocolate peanut butter cake at Cafe Atlas.
PS. For those interested, I watched an episode of the third season of Veronica Mars the other night. Her hair's getting very long and Logan has got that dreadful colour out of his hair and looks gorgeous.
