Hello, Taylor Kitsch!

'What's that?' I hear you cry.
Why, that's an entirely gratuitous photo of Taylor Kitsch aka Tim Riggins in Friday Night Lights, of course.
'Why do you have an entirely gratuitous photo of Taylor Kitsch on your blog today?' I hear you cry. (Please stop crying. It's OK, don't fret. Taylor Kitsch is here to make everything OK.)
Why indeed? Because. I. Can. You can find another one here.

There's nothing much to report on the writing front I'm afraid, and there probably won't be for a couple of weeks. My excuse: I'm going to New York! New York City, baby! But when I come back, I will be On It. I'm sure all those books and trainers and jeans and tops I'll be buying will help me with my writing. In case you can't tell, I'm hugely excited about the NYC visit. It's my favourite place in the world.

Things I'm planning to do in NYC:

1. Shop
2. Eat
3. Drink (ice-cold Coors would be ideal)
4. Go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (best museum ever)
5. Er... shop a bit more

I think that just about covers it. I'm looking forward to checking out the YA sections of various bookstores. Oh, and I really want to pick up a copy of Going Bovine by Libba Bray.

I'll be posting again before I go. Next time, no gratuitous photos, I promise. Oh, and if anyone's got any suggestions for things I absolutely must do/see/eat in New York, please let me know!


  1. NYC: One word, JEALOUS. x

  2. Absolutely UTTERLY MUST go to Books of Wonder on W. 18th Street. It has great YA/kids books, a gallery of book art--and a cafe with cupcakes. Try anything called Red Velvet. YUM! Also go to the Gotham Book Store (near the NY Library. And if you like food stores go to Dean and DeLucca's in SoHo or Zabars up on the West Side. And visit the boating pond in Central Park and...I'd better stop or I wiill take up 17 inches of your comments page! Have a lovely time and soak it all up. It's co-best city in the world with Paris.

  3. Lucy- Thanks for the recommendations! Books of Wonder looks like it's pretty close to where I'm staying - yay!

    Ooh, I think NYC would beat Paris in a fight...

  4. eat eggs benedict in pastis http://www.pastisny.com/ - the best eggs benedict in the whole goddam world. feeling vaguely depressed that i'm not going to nyc.
