Living in NYC certainly has its perks. Yes, it's more expensive than God can afford, 75 percent of enclosed public areas smell like urine and if you're a city driver you might as well resign yourself to parking in Stratford ... but trust me, living here is better than not living here. Here is why:
For one, the food. All kinds, any time, anywhere. Greek, Ethiopian, Colombian. Cheap, gourmet, your way, their way, any way.
Second, the fashion. Yeah okay, I heard the rumors, we're no longer number one in the worldwide style poll whatever. Eff that, we are.
Third, unless you live in a cave (read: really far out in Queens) everybody always knows somebody who knows somebody famous -- making everybody practically famous themselves. One of my friends is friends with Anne Hathaway, for example.
Fourth ... well, actually I'm going to go back to number three, because for the purposes of this post, this is the only one that matters. Most of the time, I'm hustling -- I wanna be better, I wanna be sassier, I want really expensive shoes on sale -- but today and today only, I'm here to help you. How can I help you, you ask? I'm here for you to be that person who knows somebody who knows somebody famous and get you thismuchcloser to fabulousness.
Sex and the City 2 -- the second SATC movie -- is having an open call for extras. They're looking for fashion models, celebrity types, upscale socialites, fashionistas, urban club goers, gays and lesbians, international types (Middle Eastern, Arabic, Asian, European, British), and professional soccer players, among many more. If you're just really, really hot or have a really, really great wardrobe, that will do as well. Where and when?
