За спичками едой на как-можно-дОльше. Туда шла- красота. Оттуда – сил не было любоваться: телегу тянула. Цены скакнули раза в полтора, ну да что там, лишь бы уже затовариться – и обратно в нору.

Все в масках разнокалиберных, кто в цветочек, кто –  в черепаАх с костями; кто в лиловых перчатках, кто в жёлтых, как для мойки унитаза…глаза б мои не видели.

Поглядим лучше на джентльмена с собачкой. Милота!

Grainy and vague – not my intent, it’s all LG phone’s fault. But it adds certain style and meaning, and I think it’s right on the money.

Должок!

Обещала картинки из венгерско-словенской поездки, да так и не нашла времени за полгода с гаком. Спешу пока год не кончился, вот смотрите!

Home

is the place I want to be:

That will be a new hat with funny fluffy top – a complement to a snood. I used circular needles – and only remembered why (so there is no seam) when I finished. Oh, well.

Decision to ride up to the library was spontaneous – I never know how stressful my workday will be, and don’t plan any outings for my evenings – so I didn’t’ have a camera.

The pictures are grossly inadequate – they were made in haste, by cellphone, and are not much improved by Picasa editing.

You will be better served by going to library collection’s website and looking at professional photos (and listening to professionals’ guidance), here.

Still, I’ll show you some that I am particularly fond of – even if they are just pale hint to the real ones.

Tried and proven recipe from  Serious Eats. 

What I did differently:  used pumpernickel batons in open sandwich. Naturally, didn’t toast them. Grape seed oil in lieu of XV olive. Added  arugula. And skipped the scallions.

8 утра. Комната в будайском “Модном отеле” сдана, багаж оставлен консьержу, у меня 2 часа до заказанного такси и 5 часов до вылета. Полчаса на завтрак (и какой! ах, эти кокосово-бело-шоколадные шарики к кофе с пенкой!)

Вышла из ворот на улице Ури, пересекла квартал до стены и пошла гулять по периметру.

Тихо, безлюдно. Цветут каштаны, семенят собачки, часы бьют на церкви Матиаша.

8am. The guestroom’s key card is surrendered to reception, a porter stored my carry-on, I have 2 hrs till shuttle to the airport and 5 – till my flight. Buda Fashion Hotel’ restaurant fed me their last breakfast, fit for a squadron of hungry Hussars – oh, those coconut-white chocolate balls with cappuccino!

Out the doors I go, across Uri Utca, along the meter-thick  parapet wall,  around the castle hill. There are no people, just occasional doggie and his master on a leash. Heady aroma of blossoming chestnuts, breeze, sun and melodic sounds of clock from the Matthias church.

Union appropriation

Что заставляет одних людей постить вот такие фотки себя (ну и  – надевать вот это при таком росте, осанке, постановке коленок и главное, при таком хорошем умном еврейском лице):

, а других (как минимум полста болельщиков) захлёбываться в восторге: “ах, вы прекрасная-клёвая-необыкновенная-и-особенная”?

ps

только я подумала, что унылая “пачка” ну копия тех, что шили нам в советском детсаду на муз.утренник  – как гордая владелица сообщает: “она, кстати, детская, размер 10, хе-хе”

Ну милая, эпатировать буржуазию тоже надо уметь. Секрет в том, что предмет эпатажа должен быть безупречен – как  плавки на подкладке из “голого” шёлка”, сшитые Николь Дику на пляже Ривьеры.

Дорвалась

, называется. С АйПедика в АйТучку сгружается 877 картинок.

Не пугайтесь, вырежу половину за повторы, потом четверть –  за отсутствие эстетической ценности, останется процентов 40 на корректировку в Пикасе, потом порубаю на альбомы… всё равно жуть! Но ведь не удержишься, такая красота…

A line is…

IMG_1132

Art on Paper – a strange conglomerate of art projected onto 2D paper and 3D art made of the medium itself- is tacked away into no less strange corner of Manhattan. The show invitation provided address of 299 State St; it occupied a hangar (warehouse?) on Pier 36 at LES. To get there one has to exit subway  and then walk along in the dark under FDR Drive for 20 min, passing parked fire tracks and menacing warehouses behind chicken wire fences.

Tick-tack lunch

I’ll tell you  how to enjoy NY Restaurant Week: choose places with min of (4) $-signs to their name. The price is set (although it grew from $25 to $29 for lunch this year), but a good Chef will be a good Chef even on unaccustomely small allowance – and you’ll get a chance to see the insides of a restaurant that is normally out of your league.

That’s how, years ago, I enjoyed my birthday dinner at Jean-George (yep, at one of Trump NY buildings). And that’s how me and a colleague went to a Clocktower at – you guessed! – Metro Life building with its enormous clock atop the tower, the one that gives Madison Park on 23rd St its Deco energy and charm. Personal anecdote – every architect/designer have similar after few years of working in this city: ~15yrs ago the new owners of the building considered converting the top 20-25 floors of the Tower into hi-end apartments, and gave our office some seed money to develop preliminary space planning. We went to survey, then shared with engineers the original base building drawings. I still remember the floor plans, especially of the 25-27, where the clock takes about a quarter of the floor plate. Naturally, when we were in the middle of design process, the owners changed their mind and sold the place to someone else – too bad. Another project that “might have been”.

But I digress.

Away at Rockaway

It was a nice day…but too short for me to properly relax. I need at least 7 of those, uninterrupted…

See more @my Flikr.
