Hurlin’ Hobbies

I recently watched the HBO documentary Thin. A film that goes along side a great book by documentarian/ photographer Lauren Greenfield. Its about a ton of girls who don’t like food, hate their families, and want to out-sad each other.

It was interesting, but *spoiler alert* none of these girls actually ‘recovered’. As a matter of fact, the one I was routin’ for died.

I guess the moral of the story is to stay true to your convictions.

Despite the moment of struggle between girl and cupcake, I also enjoyed this movie a little more because I spent a large portions of my teenage years at the house of a friend who lived LITERALLY a house down from the clinic where this was filmed. Anytime I would go on a walk or a drive with a guy friend, they would take an interest to a slender, pretty girl driving by the house and it never failed to make me chuckle to watch their hopeful expressions melt, as the car veered right into the gates of the Renfrew Center.

In other news, the 2010 Zagat Guide came out today and the New York Food and Wine Festival starts tomorrow.
