Last Night, I Was In Love With The Universe (And It Was Mutual)

Dancing, drinking, singing and above all, FAN-GIRLING in my case. Last night was the most awesome weeknight I've had since college. I hopped on line at the Ace Hotel for the Rookie 1st Anniversary Party around 8, and stayed there until a group of people I know formed and we were let in. As we were walking in, Tennessee Thomas was standing near us and I refrained from saying hi or freaking out like last time (exerting super human levels of self control and I'm a huge dork). Once we were inside we got busy drinking The Bitchface cocktails and listening to readings by the talented Rookie writers. Stories were shared and the DJ got busy blasting through the past 50 years of pop music and the room exploded into a wild dance party. It was rad.

So I didn't speak to them or anything creepy like that, but I took a stealth pic which might be even creepier. In the back of the crowd on a chair is Alexa Chung and just a bit in front of her is Tennessee Thomas. Two of the women who's style I love. Full Disclosure: Taking this picture made me feel like the paparazzi.

Then we started dancing and my camera went away but phones always stays close.
Oh hey, its Ira Glass! I danced near him during Britney Spears' Oops I Did It Again, and was positive that the universe was in love with me.
We danced until the music stopped and I summed up the night as perfect and the week as one of the best I've had in NY.
