Ivana:  which night next week do you want to see interpol at the wiltern? it's all sold out but i know people

Ivana:  the song will go top 10
Lenny:  i agree, it's a smash

Lenny:  hits happen. is mr. brightside top ten yet
Ivana:  i want to live in a world where mr. brightside, slow hands and the new franz single are all in the top ten. and we have a new president. and i can sleep at night..
Lenny:  that could very well happen, but then it'll probably be pms week and u'll still be cranky
Ivana:  i managed to squeeze in an hour of shopping when i was in nyc. dan connelly from emc is the best person to take on a stealth shopping trip
Lenny:  did u buy me anything good
Ivana:  he assured me i wasn't too flat-chested for the costume national jacket i coveted—although i'm still not sure
