and a Happy New Year!

January 1st, 2006 by MrLuxuryFashionGuru

I just finished replacing all those
calories I burnt during five hours of dancing last night by eating a
wonderfully satisfying Thai green curry with chicken.  And of
course this is addition to the stuff I ate before my aunt brought lunch
home – the handful of grapes, serving of yoghurt, glass of milk,
leftover Singapore-style noodles (from dinner last night) and fragment
of a chocolate chip cookie.  This vacation has been a dietary
disaster (but a gastronomic fantasy) which will have to be
damaged-controlled for the next couple of weeks, no doubt.

Last night when the clock struck
twelve and passing cars started honking their horns, I was standing at
a random street corner in the SoMa district (6th and Bryant, I believe)
where I got a pretty good view of the fireworks (probably near the
Golden Gate bridge).  The area was deserted since most
people were indoors celebrating, but I liked being all alone and quite
quiet.  It reminded me of my other nocturnal walks, and I thought
about the last couple of New Year’s eves, which I’ve spent in quiet
rooms and hallways, always just away from the big throbbing
parties.  Like the
Sea of Dreams
event that my uncle was working at last night.  That was a pretty
crazy event.  Literally thousands of revelers, all dressed in
feathers, bodypaint and faux fur.  As I’ve said a couple of times,
it was like Halloween, Mardi Gras and the backlot of a major Hollywood
studio all rolled into one crazy, pot-smelling, intoxicatingly happy
mess.  I didn’t have my camera with me so you’ll just have to take
my word for it.  After the novelty had worn off, I chose to walk
over to
some nearby club, where I satisfied my club craving till five in the
morning, when it was time for my uncle to pack up and leave (the club
where I went was open till noon today).

That was a really fun night, not least because I finally got to wear my Marc Jacobs shirt in pintucked, striped silk 🙂

Soon we will leave this beautiful
house (with its black slate tile and Grohe fixtures in the bathroom) in the
Laurel Hill district of San Francisco (a breezy area with lovely views)
to head back to the Sierra foothills, where hopefully I’ll get to see a
little more sunshine before I fly back to Boston in a couple of days.

Happy New Year!
