September 7th, 2007

Oh, New York, I was just starting to appreciate your all-night take out and your gritty, gritty air.

Yes, today is my last day in-office at The Village Voice. I’ve really enjoyed my time here–the people, the atmosphere, the cubicle walls–but now I’ll be transforming back into a freelancer. That’s because, as of the end of September, I’ll be moving to the South of France. There, I’ll be teaching English to rowdy teenagers, working on my writing, and engaging in bilingual cybersex. I’m also hoping that, over the course of a full seven months, I’ll be able to get a tan. Good luck to me. Living in the city has been great. Where else could I bask in the sunshine between enormous buildings, or go to a voguing show, or get curry delivered to my door? Have I mentioned I’ll miss the food?

No worries, though. Click Me is still going strong, and Heroine Sheik will continue to be a Voice blog. The only real difference for you, reader, is that in the pictures you see of me, I’ll be hugging a palm tree!

    Thanks! That’s my town in the picture. Looks happy and sunny :).

    I’m extremely jealous :)

  4. Bonnie Ruberg Says:

    I’ll be spending a significant portion of my weeks trying to convince rowdy teenage boys that learning English is a good idea, so don’t be too jealous :).

    It’s funny you mention the food. I used to live up north. When I moved to Georgia, the food was one of the first differences I noticed. Generally speaking, the food up north is better. I have no idea why.

    That said, everyone I’ve ever known who’s lived in or visited France swears the food there is outstanding, so you may be pleasantly surprised.

    Ah yes, French food. I’ve actually lived in France before, up in Tours. The cheese is amazing, the wine is cheap, the bread is buttery and delicious. I once went for 48 hours on nothing but pain au chocolate (which are five for a Euro–still, bad idea). As for eating healthy… The real catch is that I’m vegetarian, something that tends to be baffling to the French as well as their cuisine. Here in NYC, I have a million ethnic veggie restaurants to choose from. In France… I lived with a French woman who was downright terrified with tofu. It suffices to say, it’ll be interesting :).

    In Melbourne Australia, I’m also spoiled for choice. The bigger melting pot the better I think.
    My sister tells me it’s really hard as a vego in Japan.

    Mmm, I can imagine that. So much fish. Still, I would like to go someday, if only the plane ticket weren’t so darn ‘spensive. I imagine coming home with suitcases full of Sanrio products :).

    Congrats and good luck, Bonnie! I hate to see you go as full-timer; I have enjoyed your work, and you helped hook up Cybersexy and me which so far has been a hot, wonderful time with more to “cum”. I hope you have a great time in France and maybe we can hook up for a chat sometime.
