last night we celebrated jen's birthday with dinner at osha, drinks at the lone palm, and dancing to african riddims at little baobob. it was great to chow down with sharon & bill, camelia & greg, denise & tim, and the lovely sarah! such creative, inspirational people!
jen and gabe told us a great story about a recent dining experience at le cheval in oakland. sitting at the table next to them was a 40-something, bearded mountain man and two large black prostitutes in leather shorts. they ordered fried calamari and appletinis and were discussing their evening's plans......."i can't stop thinking about your nipples" and "i'm going to fuck you for six hours" and "i love my wife" were all part of the conversation. plus rounds of shots and more platters of fried food. amazing!
i made jen a necklace and got her these y's by yohji yamamoto pants she'd wanted a while back...camelia got her this incredible bubble pyrex necklace, and sarah gifted some fab antipast socks and copper doodads.
and our wishes came true....with dancing!
