Black Eyes and Black Coffee.

1st October 2009

Saturday night I left work early to run home for my camera and shoot Rorschach downtown. It was an amazing show that I got to be a part of.

Then I went straight from there to a DIY venue in Brooklyn to shoot These Arms Are Snakes. The fan base was such a stark contrast but  the show was just as crazy in a completely different way that I still can’t pin point.

I came home and drank 4 cups of black coffee while editing. Around 7am I looked in the mirror for the first time to notice not only the bags UNDER my eye, but also the one on it.

Black eyes and black coffee are indications of a night well spent.

Perhaps I’ve been spoiled by growing up around Hungarian women who make a treat called Farsangi fánk, which is what I consider to be the perfect doughnut. Sprinkled with powdered sugar, it is a thin shell of sweet bread that is warm inside and nearly melts in your mouth. Its more than just that circular shaped  sugar bread that looks 10 times better than it tastes, at Dunkin Donuts.img_3440

After having started many days with homemade Hungarian doughnuts, Daily Donuts, California Donuts, and the next level treats from Voo Doo Doughnuts, I refuse to eat anything less.

This may be why I’ve spent nearly every morning this week stopping off at The Doughnut Plant.

The damn place is an adorably retro looking space filled mainly with racks and contraptions that i imagine could only be necessary for making doughnuts. It is in a corner of a strip of sad looking shops, and a photography shop that conveniently also repairs shoes. Its across the street from a housing project. If that scares you away from it, then good. You don’t deserve to indulge in a vanilla glazed doughnut, or a strawberry glaze made with real berries, or a square jelly doughnut dipped in a peanut butter melted sugar coating creating what is essentially a Peanut Butter & Jelly doughnut.

  • A big bonus: their decent coffee.
  • A slight draw back:the price. I believe the treats are 2.75 a hole.

  • Listening to the Michael McDonald Pandora station without shame.
  • Walking by a vitamin store and deciding to add Ginkgo Biloba and fish oil pills to my daily regimen, on a whim.
  • Deciding to try a new tea every week from Subtle Tea (Oolong, this week).
  • Finding an amazing hole in the wall Vietnamese sandwich shop.
  • Letting my apartment be a mess, but keeping the dishes clean and the counters smelling of Windex.
  • Animation seminars instead of bars.
  • Walking through the streets and pin pointing where I am on my phone.
  • Sliding on my floors with socks on while blasting Stiff Little Fingers.
  • Don’t forget the snuggle.
