Paris....


So from Madrid I went to Paris to see friends, eat pastries, and de-tox from Madrid Pride overload, the mones, and the subsequent depression that follows once all your friends have left the party and youre the last one standing there... It didnt work...
I had a phenomenal time indulging in the worlds finest pastries at Laduree with friends... I mean these pastries cannot be beat?! The restaurant itself is amazing, to go to the bathroom you have to walk down this long wall papered hall and through rooms with over stuffed chairs and satin curtains, its very MURDER MYSTERY and a pastry shop that comes off like the Haunted Mansion ride at Disneyland is just a perfect combination for me as my esthetic is pretty PLUS scary, never just pretty. Pretty without a threat or a surprise doesnt do it for me. I want some mystery... some kind of tension.The turquoise one was mint flavor, which I didnt anticipate, and had PURPLE BERRY FILLING?! Turquoise AND purple?! I was in heaven.... Honestly when I cut into the turquoise cake and purple GOO was inside I actually felt "OMG SOMEONE IN PARIS GETS ME!" ... I love Paris and I actually really like Parisians. Theyre not cunts to me. Maybe because Im from New York??? What ever the case is I always seem to like them and they like me. I feel Parisians secretly love New Yorkers... After pasteries I had to retire to the houseboat I was staying at in Place De Concorde... Its the strangest thing, youre like sleeping in the center of Paris, theres nothing around you but GLOBAL LANDMARKS. I had a rough sleep because I was sure I heard someone on the boat, which I was on by myself, and worried about a frog man or ninjas or french stranglers to hop on board and kill me. Swear to god I slept with a knife..... What?! Better SAFE THEN SORRY! and YES I did just laugh out loud at the idea that sleeping with a KNIFE is somehow SAFE but If someone was gonna come for me I was not going down in Paris on a boat, NOT THAT NIGHT, I promise you!
Post mones and post party I got DEPRESSED... but I knew this was coming. I had timed my cycle so my last shot was the day before I left so the next three weeks I could detox and return to NYC again fresh and as NOT IN TRANSITION (m to M) David. I was so down, felt very alone, and decided to make a video of it, which I happen to think is funny and GENIUS and I hope I never forget the lesson...It was Sunday and Paris was CLOSED... ALL OF IT.. video
After my woe is me whiny moment I met up with my friend Ferid as he was going to show me his homeland, Belgium, because in May I showed him America for the first time. Before leaving for Belgium though we headed to the gym, it started to pour, so we ducked inside this little glass corridor and decided to just make our way through it. Neither Ferid or I had ever been in it so when we stumbled upon a store that I'd call "SKEKSI HOME AND LIVING"... we gagged. The place is called Les Cabinet des Curieux and there was so much merchandise I wanted I could have gone broke in the shop. videoAll things VERY me, Podling juicers, man made creatures in glass jars, steel alien sculpture, antique clocks with winged demons, gold tentacle sculpture... "all of it, just throw it in a bag and send me a bill." .. it was all rad but NOT CHEAP, but not overly expensive either. I actually thought it was very reasonable considering that it was all one of a kind pieces and antiques. I really recommend visiting the shop while in Paris... There was one piece that stood out to me as the MUST HAVE and Ferid said "ITS SO YOU!" which made me giggle as it was so HARSH that I was so flattered to be likened to it that I bought it. It was this steel bust of like some evil queen somewhere between Neferetiti and the Metropolis Robot as well as Grace Jones... All "Yesses" It was the second most expensive thing I ever bought besides a couch but its worth every penny... It will be around a lot longer then I will so Im just warning the future owner NOW that I WILL be possessing this sculpture in the after life!

SO after some retail therapy it was time to head to Belgium where I'd never been before.....

There's something about hearing about "shitty cookies" that makes me LOL. Plus your sign-off/last thought is classic :)

Have you ever been to Deyrolle in Paris? It's become one of my favorite "only-in-Paris" places, and I think you might like it.
