Standing on a black AstroTurf platform and in Dior black lace, Lisa Maria Falcone told 900 guests at the Friends of the High Line benefit, “Unfortunately, I have no surprises tonight.” A board member of the elevated park and co-chairman — with her husband, Philip Falcone — of this year’s benefit, Falcone was alluding to a spontaneous $10 million gift she announced at the organization’s fundraiser two years ago.

    You put your left foot in,
    You put your left foot out;
    You put your left foot in,
    And you shake it all about.
    You do the Hokey-Pokey,
    And you turn yourself around.
    That’s what it’s all about!

     Is that a ‘bin-liner’ she is wearing?

    That “bin-liner” cost more than the average UBS bonus.

    Nothing like a xylophone and a set of bongos.

    Are those bows where you rest your arms while doing the St. Peter?

    I’m surprised someone in high finance would buy something like Dior aka New Money Costume… Stick to Paul Stuart, Hickey Freeman, Brooks Brothers, and J. Press… Maybe Luciano Barbera… Maybe Loro Piana

     You know how I know you’re gay?

    I guess I should stick to overused quotes from popular movies

  17. Posted by JohnGalt | May 17, 2011 at 9:24 PM

    I’d hit that, I must admit… 

  18. Posted by JR | May 17, 2011 at 9:49 PM

    Often used, yes. Since it is quite apt, it is not overused.

    Just watch In the Loop?
