Dreams, Denise Richards & Dolphins

Thursday, June 11th, 2009

People who talk about their dreams are actually trying to tell you things about themselves they’d never admit in normal conversation. - Chuck Klosterman
I love that quote.
Because it makes so much sense to me. Telling someone about your wildest dreams is similar to drinking sambuca out of an ice cream pail until things get fuzzy [...]

The One About My Dress

Thursday, June 4th, 2009

So, some of you may have heard that I’m in a wedding next week. Actually, if you follow me on twitter there’s no way you would NOT know about this wedding because when I first tried my dress on I said something like
“Oh sweet baby J. My boobs look like Scar Jo’s. I’m scared”.
And then [...]

This is what happens when you aren’t getting laid

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

The title? Yeah. Let’s not even discuss numbers or time lines. Let’s just say the President wasn’t black the last time I got laid.
Cue ice crunching.
The thing is, other than that minor major physical event- I’m completely happy right now with the relationships I have with people in my life. Without getting into a lot [...]

Today’s Top Five

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

One of my best friends in the entire universe and I, have spent years perfecting our Top Five. That is, the Top Five men that you adore and want to do inappropriate but highly pleasing things with. Anytime we have time to kill, waiting for a movie to start or stuck in traffic- one of [...]

For Nicole and Peter

Thursday, May 7th, 2009

Sometimes this is the only thing that gets me out of bed.
It’s my favourite television moment.
What’s yours?

The one I almost didn’t write

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

I hesitate to write about this.
I tend to stick to funny stories, or stories that are my own- where I’m center stage (for better or worse) and my actions are the ones that can be judged. But I find myself thinking more and more of what I’m trying not to write instead of what I [...]

You know, I’m a little pissed off

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

You know what makes this even worse?
I actually had this whole other post planned. It was going to be funny and thoughtful and there was a chance it might have ripped your heart out- but in the good way that everyone likes their heart to be ripped out.
Instead I received an email tonight from someone [...]

Worth the wait in an instant world

Thursday, April 9th, 2009

We live in an instant world. Instant coffee, instant messaging, instant car starters. We wait for nothing. We can fast forward our commercials, email our letters and drive-thru for our meals.
Everything happens so quick that when I actually am forced to wait for something; eggs to cook, Saturdays paper, a doctor to see me, life [...]

Discomfort Zone

Wednesday, April 1st, 2009

Like Pavlov’s dogs, I’m learning that certain triggers will send me into an unplanned response. More specifically, certain phrases will send me into a blood curdling, hair tingling, cold and uncomfortable sweat that will prompt me to lie in the fetal position under my bed and drink whiskey until I think I AM Johnny Cash.
Okay, [...]

On Magazines & Lean Cuisines

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

Today I realized that my receipt from the drugstore was a pretty much a direct reflection of my current life situation. Here is what I bought:
- Four magazines (Time, Us Weekly, O- with Michelle Obama on the cover! and Vanity Fair)
- lipgloss
- 5 Lean Cuisine microwave dinners (all the same kind, a frightening chicken/rice combo)
- [...]

And here is what I did

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

Two weeks ago, I wrote this.
And then the emails started pouring. I got emails from people telling me that emailing him back would be wrong. I got emails telling me that I would regret never emailing back. I got emails calling me a home wrecker (which besides not being true, isn’t very original. Try harder [...]

And then my heart stopped

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

In order for you to understand, you need to quickly read this.
It’s okay, I will wait.
That guy? Let’s call him Jack. And let’s also keep in mind two things, 1) that I’m horrified that I have become a girl who is using blogging to solely discuss a heartbreaking boy situation and 2) that such a [...]

Thoughts From Someone Who Wore Sweatpants All Day

Thursday, February 19th, 2009

So this week has been ridiculous. Not, “feather boa wearing, ‘oh look I found $100!’, rainbows everyday” sort of ridiculous, it’s been more like “sweet baby J, someone just kill me now so the misery ends“. See the difference?
I have to admit, I wasn’t feeling that inspired to write anything other than ” WHY IS [...]

The brandys

Thursday, January 15th, 2009

It’s awards season. The People’s Choice, the Golden Globes, the 20sb awards (vote UNW? for best group blog!) and it got me thinking.
About all of you people who deserve awards, who deserve recognition, who deserve 30 seconds to thank every single person in you’ve ever met in your entire life before getting cut off by [...]

I swear, the acronym wasn’t planned

Thursday, January 8th, 2009

On Monday, Mr.5280 wrote about the trifecta of qualities he loves in the ladies. Which? Got me thinking about the qualities I enjoy in men. And by ‘enjoy’, I mean, qualities that make me swoon. Swoon like I should be wearing a corset, sort of swooning. My list is definitely longer than three, but because [...]
