Thanksgiving this year will consist of the Madrid branch of The Super Fancy Classy Social Club (For Classy Broads Abroad) wearing pretty dresses, long gloves, and tiaras. Then, we will be getting drunk on tinto/cava/claras, and going to our favorite Indian place in Lavapies.
We may have to make this into a tradition.
This sounds so fucking fantastic. Ahhh nostalgia. I was a big fan of Chueca and Malasaña and my piso was right between the Noviciado and Tribunal metro stops. ¡Te echo de menos, Madrid!!!
MY MOM JUST BOUGHT ME AN ONLINE SUBSCRIPTION TO THE NYT FOR CHRISTMAS!!!
MY MOM IS THE BEST MOM EVER.
Okay, time to leave work. Bye, tumblrverse!
I just love journalism so much sometimes it makes me ache inside. I feel so attached to the entire process, ethos, everything. Journalism is like a kid, it’s always learning new things and sometimes it struggles with new toys like social media and really overdoes it and makes a mess (ahem, CNN) or picks fights with its friends or just really fucks shit up by not covering like the absence of WMDs in Iraq or something but I still love it anywayyy.
