but… if i were to get a tattoo, i would definitely go to amanda wachob in nyc, as she created some of the prettiest that i’ve seen. she has really managed to blend the line between art and tattoo.
you can see more of her work as well as make an appointment via her website.

flower arranging is a real art form… it’s a lot harder then it looks.
so why not take a floral arrangement class from two very talented girls in brooklyn?

i‘m not sure if you are familiar with improv everywhere, the new york based group who “cause scenes of chaos and joy in public places”
such was their latest mission.

it’s SantaCon in new york!
in case you don’t know what that is, these pictures will help you to understand. basically it’s when hundreds if not thousands of people dress up like santa claus and walk around the city. it’s pretty amazing. and fun.
so, if you are in new york, put on that suit and just look around you (you’re bound to see a few).

this picture was taken last year in dyker heights, brooklyn… one of those neighborhoods where people compete to see how many lights, blow-up characters and things that move they can possibly fit onto their yard. so what did we do? we filled our thermos with pineapple buttered rum, put on our mittens and made our way out there to see the show.
this house was one with the least amount of decorations, but also one of the most successful.
here are some other, slightly more colorful houses:

there is a new exhibition at moma all about the works and spectacular mind of tim burton. everything from childhood drawings to character studies to his extensive movie career is covered in a seemingly over-the-top-perfectly-imaginative-tim-burton-kind-of-way.
the exhibit runs through april, 2010

i love dumplings.
fried dumplings, steamed dumplings, soup dumplings, wontons, pierogi, gyoza, manti, and so on and so forth.
my friend jeanne, knowing full well about my dumpling cravings (she has been dragged to joe’s shanghai for soup dumplings on multiple occasions), sent me a little post she found about dumplings in new york.
the places visited:
you can read for yourself what they thought was the best fried dumpling… or… you could go and taste for yourself. i must also mention that if you are in new york, you must hop on the seven train and take a ride out to flushing where a plethora of delicious dumplings await.
when i worked at living, i remember cutting out an story called “dumplings of the world” (from september 2008) which gave the recipes for, guess what, dumplings found around the world! it covered chinese wontons, polish pierogi, nepalese momos, swedish kroppkakor, italian gnudi, indonesian onde onde, austrian topfenknoedel and turkish manti. i cannot seem to find it online, but if you can get your hands on that issue, you should start cooking.
in the meantime, i did manage to find a post of the turkish manti recipe on the bitten word.
p.s. if anyone happens to stumble across a good place for dumplings in paris, please let me know!
