July 31st 1984

Tomorrow is my 25th Birthday!

Thats a Quarter of a Century!

And I have so much to be thankful for, my family and my friends, without whom I'd be lost.

Tomorrow I'll be spending the first half of my day at work (which I'm excited for, because after all I work with some of my best friends and who better to be with on your special day then them).

Then the second half of my day starts with burritos and margaritas at Maracas followed by who knows what sort of birthday fun!

I've got my Holga locked and loaded to capture all that will ensue! I've packed all my gadgets and gizmos that go with it as well as all sorts of fun film types to play with to get a variety of images!

I'm really excited!


And speaking of excited here are some sneak peaks of a little number I'm working on for a fabulous roofdeck party next week!

New Favorite Song

Peter Sarstedt's Where Do You Go My Lovely


You talk like Marlene Dietrich
And you dance like Zizi Jeanmaire
Your clothes are all made by Balmain
And there’s diamonds and pearls in your hair, yes there are.

You live in a fancy apartment
Off the Boulevard of St. Michel
Where you keep your Rolling Stones records
And a friend of Sacha Distel, yes you do.

You go to the embassy parties
Where you talk in Russian and Greek
And the young men who move in your circles
They hang on every word you speak, yes they do.

But where do you go to my lovely
When you're alone in your bed
Tell me the thoughts that surround you
I want to look inside your head, yes i do.

I've seen all your qualifications
You got from the Sorbonne
And the painting you stole from Picasso
Your loveliness goes on and on, yes it does.

When you go on your summer vacation
You go to Juan-les-Pines
With your carefully designed topless swimsuit
You get an even suntan, on your back and on your legs.

And when the snow falls you're found in St. Moritz
With the others of the jet-set
And you sip your Napoleon Brandy
But you never get your lips wet, no you don't.

But where do you go to my lovely
When you're alone in your bed
would you Tell me the thoughts that surround you
I want to look inside your head, yes I do.

You're in between 20 and 30
A very desirable age
Your body is firm and inviting
But you live on a glittering stage, yes you do, yes you do.

Your name is heard in high places
You know the Aga Khan
He sent you a racehorse for Christmas
And you keep it just for fun, for a laugh ha-ha-ha

They say that when you get married
It'll be to a millionaire
But they don't realize where you came from
And I wonder if they really care, or give a damn

But where do you go to my lovely
When you're alone in your bed
Tell me the thoughts that surround you
I want to look inside your head, yes i do.

I remember the back streets of Naples
Two children begging in rags
Both touched with a burning ambition
To shake off their lowly brown tags, they try

So look into my face Marie-Claire
And remember just who you are
Then go and forget me forever
But I know you still bear
the scar, deep inside, yes you do

I know where you go to my lovely
When you're alone in your bed
I know the thoughts that surround you
`Cause I can look inside your head.

I. Am. Obsessed. Period.

Last Minute Holiday

At the very last minute, on very little sleep I decided to spend my two days off at home in Scituate, Ma rather than in the city. I got up earlier then I have in a very long time, jumped on the Fung Wah bus and I was on my way.

A few hours later I was on the beach with my best friend Brendan alongside his brother and sisters enjoying everything the sun and surf had to offer. At dusk we went surfing, it was my very first time and I had a blast!

The following day was spent with my family just relaxing on our back deck, laughing, having a few beers, enjoying the beautiful weather and company.

Only one photo was snapped the entire short but wonderful time, Me and my Baby Tallulah.

I ended my trip watching my Mom, Dad and brother Ryan play a game of softball for my mother's work team at sunset. They won.

And what seemed like only minutes after I arrived home, I was once again on the bus headed back to New York.

I'm now back at my apartment in the City, rejuvenated and ready.
