So apparently there actually was absinthe at the party, but by the time we got there it was all gone. For a party supposedly full of people hopped up on a highly alcoholic, psychoactive drink, things were pretty tame. There wasn't even dancing, really.
I talked to Jodie Abrams, the photo editor girl at Nerve and she told me that they think they're gonna call the site "Greendulgence." I could be completely wrong, as the music was really loud and I was really drunk, and that word is kinda weird and doesn't make sense, but I'm pretty sure that's what she said. So then I talked to Ben, who is the editor of the new site and flew out from California. I considered talking about green stuff and ecological responsibility with him, but the only think I could offer on that is how this cycle of Top Model is all about being green and Tyra even placed a compost heap in the model's house. I bet it got full of tampons and Splenda packets.
But what I was really excited about was that I got to talk to feminist author/filmmaker Jennifer Baumgardner at the party. I told her I actually met her a long time ago when I used to work at BUST magazine. She was like, "Yeah, you look like someone who would've worked at BUST." I'm not sure if that's an insult or a compliment. Whatevs.
