The Marriott Marquis Will Never be the Same

I had to stay at the Marriott Marquis in Manhattan (as in, the city in which I reside) on Monday because of a conference I was organizing on Tuesday. In true slavedriving fashion, we all had to sleep over so that we could be ready to go without having to worry about "pesky traffic" at 6:05am the next morning. So I arrive at my room (14 blocks from my apartment)at 10pm after a dinner with coworkers at the nauseating revolving restaurant at the top of the building and I am so ready to watch - all together now - Laguna Beach. I mean, this is the one thing to which I look forward ALL week. I live for Laguna Beach. Except THERE IS NO LAGUNA BEACH because THERE IS NO MTV! Although there is every other cable channel you can imagine. This is the conversation that ensued:
Me: Uh, where's MTV?
Marriott: I'm sorry, we don't include MTV in our cable package.
Me: Well, how do you suggest I watch Laguna Beach?
Marriott: The MTV Building is conveniently located across the street, perhaps they are playing it in the window?
Me: It's monsooning out. I need a solution that will not involve leaving this hotel, yet will still result in me watching Laguna Beach. And I've now missed the first 8 minutes.
Marriott: I apologize, I'm afraid we simply don't offer that channel.
Me: I need one good reason not to hold our event next year at the Sheridan.

I complained to the general manager and he told me that he would consider adding MTV to their cable line up over there (only because I had VIP status as PwC pays several thousand dollars annually for use of their space as it is one of 2 hotels in NYC that can accomodate a crowd of 500+).

It's official. This job is making me insane.

My Favorite was Malibu Musk

My friend Shelby is going to be set up with a guy who is (get this) an heir to the DESIGNER IMPOSTER PERFUME throne! Do you love it? I certainly as fuckfire do. I keep wondering if he'll whisper in her ear, "You know Shelby, if you like Giorgio you'll LOVE Primo."

Falun Gong is Supremely Annoying

What is more self reflexive than a large group of Chinese expatriots re-enacting a torture scene directly outside of the building in which I work? You tell me.

Real Estate in New York

So recently, I was looking at prospective apartments. I gave in and decided to use a broker. Where are these mythical apartments people keep finding on Craig's List that are amazing, yet have no fee? Because the apartment I was shown (and could have purchased for 1500 a month in addition to a steep broker's fee) had a SHOWER IN THE LIVING ROOM. Oh yes, you read that correctly.I can only assume that is for entertainment purposes. Not only does it conjur up images of Psycho, but I would have the added complexity of perhaps getting electrocuted on the TV whilst shaving a leg. Luckily, I have decided to stay in my current aparment. Where the shower is where it should be.
