Loving New York day 20: near death and cronuts

 20140514-085851.jpg

I have been slack at blogging the last few days. I was away in Connecticut and obviously there is no internet there of any sort. There never has been, it’s like a State policy or something. I guess the actual truth is that I’ve just been having ALL THE FUN and keep being naughty and pretending I can’t hear myself every time I tell myself to write a blog. It’s been so magical – stunning drives through villages and towns with clapboard houses and beautiful little white churches – several marshy places that seemed so familiar that I couldn’t stop … Continue reading

Loving New York: Day Three

SO MANY THINGS! I love ALL THE THINGS! But here are some highlights from Day Three: 1. Mad flower Man Man runs into grocery store. ‘HELP,’ he shouts. He is sweating. ‘I NEED A FLOWER RECOMMENDATION.’ I listen up. I like this sort of thing. ‘THERE’S A GIRL. I NEED TO BUY HER SOME FLOWERS. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE HELL TO GET HER.’ I smile kindly. ‘Let me help you,’ I say in my smoothest English accent. ‘THANK YOU’ he yells hoarsely. ‘You like her then?’ I ask, taking him outside to the flowers. He looks even more wild. … Continue reading

Loving New York DAY ONE

 Lucy Robinson with jetlag

I’m here! I’m here! I’m here! As you can see, I look like an alien, I smell like a tramp and I sound like a MAN. A growly sexy man, except I’m a rotten smelly woman. Anyway, what’s up, yo! As many readers know, I blog most days about things I love because, since doing a thing called the Lightning Process a few months back to cure my ass of M.E., I’ve discovered that life is in fact amazing and it’s worth celebrating every tiny thing. And when I’m in New York I love ALL THE THINGS. So here’s what … Continue reading

Wot I loved today: ALL THE THINGS.

It’s been three days since I dropped a Wot I Love blog. This isn’t because I’ve stopped loving things, it is because the data allowance on my phone has run out for this month and I won’t pay for any more. I AM A PIKEY OF ASTONISHING PROPORTIONS! Additionally, I am away from home and whenever I’m somewhere with wifi I’m generally talking to people. But I’m here now on a sofa with wifi and nobody to talk to so I’m going to tell you about the things I’ve loved since Monday. So: On TuesdayI loved having a literary inspiration … Continue reading

ARM! ARM! ARM!

I do not have much experience of spa days and beauty treatments. Especially facials. Facials, for reasons as yet unclear, have always alarmed me. I had my first ever facial in 2011 when my friend Marge came to visit me in Argentina. In an act of quite unbelievable kindness she booked my scuzzy backpacker’s arse into a five star hotel as a 31st birthday present and paid for us to have – amongst many other things – a super-luxury facial. You can read more about our escapades – because many of them were very funny – here and here and … Continue reading

Sex Tourettes Fart Man

“Can you pass me the chillis please?” my friend T says. The Man picks up the chillis and passes them to her, grinning. He says, “They look like green knobs.” I look at The Man. “Behave,” I tell him. He giggles naughtily. I shake my head and look beseechingly at our friends. “It’s like going out with a teenager,” I say to them. They nod in agreement. The Man, clearly enjoying this, trumps. “NO, The Man!” I shout, trying not to laugh. “You’re a nightmare! You are sex tourettes fart man!” Our friend B laughs. “That sounds like a good … Continue reading

Face to face with a skunk’s backside

I’m going to come clean straight away: I did come face to face with a skunk’s arse yesterday but that is not what this blog is about. I was just trying to get your attention. Apart from anything else I suspect that you have probably had enough of me talking about arses. (My agent suggested to me recently that I would do well to take out some of the bum jokes in my second novel. If this wasn’t bad enough, I refused to do any such thing. “I like those disgusting jokes,” I muttered obstinately. Still stuck in the mind … Continue reading

Homage to Marge

My dear friend Marge has left. I am therefore dedicating this blog to her and the magnificent times we had together – an ‘homarge’, if you will. Our time together began with a reminder of the hypnotic effect that Marge has on men. In the space of the four hours between the time that we cancelled our road trip and arrived in a nearby town to do some last-minute hiking, she had somehow secured the affections of an unfeasibly good looking gentleman. When I say unfeasibly good looking I really mean unfeasibly. He had the body of an adonis and the face … Continue reading

A pretty brief road trip, all things considered

We arrived at the car hire terminal with a swagger that befits those rugged and tough enough to tackle the Ruta 40. A box full of emergency provisions, should we break down and have to spend the night on the wild plains of Patagonia, accompanied our EXPLORERS’ backpacks, along with things like proper motoring atlases and emergency fuel supplier lists and instructions for changing a tyre. Not that we needed the instructions, mind. By this point we’d watched the video on youtube so many times that we were like old hands when it came to wrenches and jack handles. Man, … Continue reading
