These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

Dude, I am SO not eating these now. WAY too much vodka last night.

I could barely manage oreos.

Euphro says:

I see "Tia Maria" flavour. I don't think I've ever had one of those :) *jealous*

Just the thought of it right now makes me queasy.

6th May 2005, 17:44

Euphro says:

I can imagine. You have my sympathy :)

6th May 2005, 17:45

bronxelf says:

At least my head doesnt hurt. Thats the only thing I was really worried about. I had a LOT (read: lot) of vodka last night.

Euphro says:

Lyzardly says to ask about your bar tab...

6th May 2005, 17:47

bronxelf says:

I saw that.
Basically? I had 3 double bloody marys. Crickett had 1.5, and a stoli and cranberry.

I was running a tab.

What was my total bar tab?

6th May 2005, 17:48

bronxelf says:

I should also mention I drank Crickett's bloody marys too. But that's not the point of the bar tab discussion.

6th May 2005, 17:49

Euphro says:

Oh, I get it, this is one of those math problems yuou get in the back of the newspaper where you can win a pen or something :)

6th May 2005, 17:49

bronxelf says:

Right. Just like that.

How much was the tab?

6th May 2005, 17:50

Euphro says:

You have no idea how little idea I have of the answer to that. I don't know when I was last in a bar... maybe last September. Small children mean you live a sheltered life :)

6th May 2005, 17:51

bronxelf says:

Okay. Here's what it *should* have been.

each single bloody mary costs $11.

3 doubles= 6 singles. =$66
add to it Crickett's double, plus her single.=$99
Plus her stoli and cranberry, which I think is sposed to be $8-. $107.

What was my actual bar tab?

6th May 2005, 17:55

Euphro says:

Eh... zero? (that seems an amazingly large amount of money to me for drinks, by the way) :)

*hands you a pen*

*takes pen and smiles*

bronxelf says:

btw, the Bloody Marys are very, very expensive. They really are. But theyre *So good*.

what are TimTams?

6th May 2005, 18:45

bronxelf says:

They seem to be this bizarre Australian cookies.

6th May 2005, 21:09

Helen says:

They're a bit like penguins, but not so dense.

6th May 2005, 21:12

bronxelf says:

But do I have to remove the feathers first?

6th May 2005, 21:13

Helen says:

I think it's ok to eat them whole if you dip them in tea or coffee first.

6th May 2005, 21:15

bronxelf says:

Oh well at least they'll be sure to stay crunchy then.

6th May 2005, 21:16

Geodyne says:

There are indeed Tia Maria flavoured Tim Tams there, which was why she got tow packets. :-)

Tim Tams!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That settles it. You have to come here. Find an excuse. There has to be some weird geophysical phenomena here. We have rocks.

gerrod says:

I'm not much of a fan of the Tia Maria ones... you just can't go past the original, and still the best. Caramel are a close second though.

(We're from Australia, our folks send us care packages :-D)

7th May 2005, 22:53

bronxelf says:

I havent broken into the Tia Maria ones yet but the regular ones are quite tasty.

I had some with a side of oreos. :)

Are you in NYC? Or were you just visiting in those photos?

7th May 2005, 22:55

Geodyne says:

Well, you do remember I have family in NJ - they'd consider that excuse enough for a trip. ;-)

But trust me; it's on the cards, honey.

As for the Tim Tams, I haven't actually tried the Tia Maria ones either. But I'm a bad Australian and am not really into Tim Tams. Not really a snackfood person.

bronxelf says:

Yay! I'd love to see you. We would have so much fun.

I would show you rocks. Honest. :)
