This weekend I was finally able to sample The Standard Hotel in Chelsea. While I am usually very good at resisting the temptations of the mini-bar, this one was too well-stocked and organized to resist. Anything my heart desired was in there. While I was able to resist the Smartwater, Absolut, and all the recipes for delicious cocktails. I gave in for apple juice and chocolate chip cookies. What am I, five years old? Bravo Standard – this was too fabulous.
In other news, as I continue on my organizing journey, I found a rolling rattan chest of drawers in the back of a deep coat closet. One of the drawers was weighed down by all of my soundtrack CDs that I didn’t have room for in my case logic binders. Today I’ll be tackling the alphabetizing and inserting. I know with all of the iPod technology out there these days I probably don’t even need the actual CDs anymore, but getting rid of my jewel cases was traumatic enough. Seeing as how I still have a stack of albums and no turntable, I don’t think I’ll be getting rid of the CDs for at least another decade, though during my last move I did part with all of my cassette tapes. I hope some lucky dog out there is enjoying my Echo and the Bunnymen and my Scritti Politti music.
P.S. That Office Space soundtrack is awesome. I still picture them destroying the printer with a baseball bat whenever I hear the Geto Boys.
