Stumbled Upon...

For those of you that know HLR (or have read my previous "stumbled upon" about her), you know that she LOVES her some leopard print. Seriously. This girl has a wild side (comes out occasionally post-college...and i fully intend upon pulling that side out of her this weekend), and her leopard print fetish definitely represents the HLR that we all know and love!

Just a few things I stumbled upon while helping C-Mac look for a new bag on the bop!
This Felix Ray Leopard Mesh Key Pouch is SOOOO HLR (pink and leopard!)

Same goes for this Alexander WANG (shout out to R)'s Leopard Diego Bucket Bag!

And nothing like a little HLR-esque footwear! A. Wang's Isabeli Haircalf Pointed Mules would totes just complete an outfit for HLR. Perhaps you could wear all of these things with the Rebecca Minkoff Leopard Jeans that R suggested you purchase!?! (On a more serious note, I DID see a pic of Rihanna wearing these shoes, so you should probs get them).

HLR is currently en route to see yours truly. I really hope she comes off the bolt bus rocking something that represents her wild side.



here i comeeee!

I have been counting down this day for 86 days. It has finally come!

she really IS growing up!

In college, C-Mac was always one of our more technologically challenged friends. Her computer broke sophomore year, and she has yet to get a new one. She still doesn't remember the password to her AIM Screen Name (throwback whoop whoop), and when she got her first Ipod (2007), she didn't have a single song on her computer, and certainly did not know how to upload music on the Ipod (let alone plug the Ipod into the computer).

Apparently, C-Mac is becoming a big girl (it's about time!)! She got a blackberry this year, which really amazed me...especially when she began facebooking and updating her statuses from her bberry. Then she BBM'ed me...i was in shock. And yet again, C-Mac continues to amaze me. Just got an email from the Birthday Girl herself, with a screen shot of the 10-day forecast! I am in utter disbelief that she knows how to do this! Congrats C-Mac! You're a big kid now!

Check out the screen shot..... Saturday's forecast is looking miiiiiighty good! Can't wait to celebrate her big day in true Spring form!

In case you can't see that, it says 87 degrees! Whoop Whoop! Someone up there is looking down on you C-Mac!



Over The Hill!

HAPPY BDAY C-MAC! Whoop whoop for surviving this long (kinda can't believe it!)! Now that you're the big 5-0 (2-5), do you think you can still break it down on the dancefloor like you did back in the day???

We love you!

some tricks up our sleeve

It's only fitting to provide you with some Google tricks (that L sent me) as we are Pro GChatters!

Want to make a little piggy? Type this in :(:) (it'll automatically switch to a pig, don't you worry.)

What about a crab? V.v.V

Cowbell? (Because we always talk about cowbells in gchat convos. . .) +/’\

And if you REALLY want to make your fellow gchatter ROFL, type this: ~@~

Have fun!



we all scream for ice cream!

Guess what tonight is?! 31-Cent Scoop Night at your local 31 Flavor ice cream shop (Baskin Robbins for you ice cream amatures)!!!!! Those of you that know me, know I have a sick obsession with everything ice cream related! I'll be seeing you at BR tonight! I hope you enjoy as much as I will!



It's Not Really a Good Look on Anyone. . .

Tiger debuted his new goatee at Quail Hallow.

I think I just barfed in my mouth a little bit.



kickball - game 1

I know you are all DYING to know the outcome of my kickball game on Saturday.

Welp. We lost. 6-1. But P got a home run! (Unfortunately it was the only run. . .)

The other team was really intense! I was like woah woah woah this is a co-ed social kickball league! Calm down. Please. I mean, I am all about competition, but being mean and weird on the field just is not ok.

I'll be missing the game this weekend (NYC ! ! !) so hopefully my team will be ok without me. . .HA!



Tuesday, April 27, 2010

stumbled upon....

SO. We have a BIG weekend coming up. Finally the reunion of C&R (among many others, as R has already informed you)! The only dilemma with this coming weekend (besides the fact that no restaurant in NYC wants to seat 8 girls at 8:30 on a Friday night....gee I wonder why?!), is that R and I have NOTHING to wear! Yes, this may be one of those "closet full of clothes and nothing to wear" situations, but honestly we only see each other so often, we might as well buy a new outfit for the occassion, right?!

While browsing the web, I came across this Tangier Frame Cora Dress in Shamrock and immediately thought of R! Perhaps an alternative to you going to C-Mac's b-day bash in YOUR b-day suit....?

BTW-please take note that this dress (in shamrock), is $248.00. If you purchase it in guava it is only $246.00. WTF is that about?!



Monday, April 26, 2010

Maybe I'm not a professional gchatter afterall. . .

Because I had NO clue you could GROUP CHAT until today! WOWZA!

C, HLR and I spent the day group gchatting. It's great. But you probs already knew that because clearly I am behind on the times.

And clearly we were too busy doing that to write a legit post!

Oops. Back tomorrow.

Ben Folds, Part II

Do you ever go to a concert and come out of it being even more obsessed with the artist and immediately go home to download all the songs you heard at the concert but don't own plus many more?

Well. That happens to me pretty much after every concert and Monday night was no exception. I am just loooooving Ben Folds! Not only is he the most amazing piano player (his fingers bleed!!) he is absolutely hilarious. The whole concert was sooo entertianing.

He did not do his infamous chatroulette, but that's ok. Instead he made up hilarious songs about people in the audience, laxatives, etc. But seriously, you need to check out his chatroulette:

By the way, Ben is 43. . .it seems so weird to me!



Happy Earth Day!

Be nicer to our planet today (and everyday). kthanks.



Wednesday, April 21, 2010


9 days until my NYC jaunt and I am reunited with C, C-Mac, HLR, HHS, H-Ster, N, KAK and many more! ! !

It's C-Mac's 25th (eek) so we're all coming in for the festivities. I cannot freaking wait.

I wonder what flare we'll sport for the weekend?! C - I'm putting YOU on that task. Thanks mom!



Secretary's Day

So I get out of the subway (and by subway I mean cab) this morning, and a man, who usually sells newspapers, was selling single roses, and holding a sign that said "Secretary's Day." My first thought....WOW. Second thought...will I be getting a rose?! Think again. However, I did have the New York Post on my desk this morning, instead of the usual Wall Street Journal! That was more exciting that one would imagine!

And just in case I didn't remember that I wipe peoples asses for a living, H-Ster sent me this lovely someecard. (It's true..I try to tell myself that I'm not a secretary...but I am. Single Tear).

To the rest of you "secretaries" out there, Happy Administrative Professionals Day!




So HLR just informed me that I NEED to see the DailyCandy email that went out this AM, titled "The Cure for the Common Run"--so naturally I immediately went to my inbox, only to find the most ridiculous thing ever...Kangoo Jumps. These things are outrageous. And the worst part is, that with the plethora of nut jobs in NYC, I can totally see people buying them (just like people bought those stupid Shape-Ups---and I still giggle every time I see someone wearing those---you look like a fool).

HLR, being the sucker for new products that she is, has informed me that shes TOTES getting them....HLR, is that you in the hot pink at the Kangoo Jumps demonstration at the 2009 Fitness Conference in DC???????



Tuesday, April 20, 2010


I've been chatting with HLR today on the topic of rompers. HLR is one of those people who can really pull off the romp look. Fingers crossed I am one of those people too, as I am on the hunt for the perfect romper.

Here are the looks we were discussing:

Shoshanna Urban Garden Ruffle Romper. Great color combo.

Trina Turk Castillo Romper. (Sale!)

Obviously. Lilly Pulitzer Danni Romper.

This mighttt be a beach cover up, but that's fine. I'd wear it. Whatevs. Diane von Furstenberg.

Other suggesstions for me??

busy week!

This week is a busyyy one! Tonight I'm headed to Ben Folds at The Vic, Wednesday to Big Star (round 2!) for tacos and margs with a friend, Thursday night is Passion Pit (WOOP) and Saturday is our first kickball game of the season! Sooo pumped for my packed agenda this week, though I know tomorrow, Thursday and Friday might be a little rough at the office. . .

Ben Folds came to our college freshman year. I obviously knew some Ben Folds and Ben Folds Five songs, but I was not prepared for the dweeb that took the stage. . .ha! Ben has some awesome songs so I was totally expecting a rocker-esque guy. . .not the little nerd on his piano.

But he was great - obvs - so I am really excited to see him (and his nerdiness) again.

Passion Pit. I don't even know where to begin.

Or where to end. I have been excited about this concert for months. I will be belting out every word to every song (sorry in advance to P for embarassing him the entire night).

As for kickball, I'll be sure to update you on our season stats!! Ha.



Friday, April 16, 2010

it's like riding a bike!

I NEED this Lilly P. bike. Too bad I have nowhere to use it...



I just have to share.

Our kitchen has a window that looks into the bedroom of the apartment building next door. E and I don't really look out this window that much - but one time E was looking out the window and locked eyes with the girl next door. AWK! She totally thought E was a peeper.

Well. There was another encounter (of some sorts) last night. I was standing in the kitchena and right as I looked out the window (not on purpose!), the girl BENDS OVER with NO UNDERWEAR ON! Legit, I think I saw her butthole.


Seriously though, if you know your window looks into another apartment, whyyy wouldn't you keep your shades down - especially if you're changing!

I'm scarred for life.



Rooftop Dining

Yesterday it hit 83 degrees here so it was only appropriate to eat dinner on P's roof deck.

I obviously turned to my Real Simple's Easy, Delicious Meals and decided to make the Parmesan Pasta with Chicken and Rosemary because P looooves orecchiette pasta (I like it too and also - this is kinda awkward - it's cute pasta. . .though I don't think that's the reason P likes it. . .).

The recipe calls for shredded rotisserie chicken - which I realized I hadn't had in forever - umm soo good! Sidenote: my roommate, E just loves her some rotisserie. As she puts it: "you can just sit there and like pick at it (gross but true)." Ha. Hmm looks like maybe we should have some whole chickens in our fridge for snacking??

We also made Ina Garten's Parmesen-Roasted Broccoli (oops, parm overload). I think I picked this one because of the pine nuts. I LOVE LOVE pine nuts - in salads, plain, whatevs. The broc was delish.

Paired with an Oberon (Alpha King for P), the Chicago skyline and the company of P's roommate and his girlfriend. . .made for a pretty nice night to kick off the gorgeous spring weather.

Happy Fathers Day?

Twenty-One Condom Ads You Never Saw Coming. Came across this one while anxiously awaiting Gossip Girl on Monday night. Pretty hilarious (although to be honest there are a few that I don't really know how to interpret).

A few of my faves (slash the only ones I actually understood...)

Happy Father's Day....

Durex Extra Large....

Have the sex you tell your friends you have...




From the age of about 10 until 21, I wanted to be Katie Couric.

Let's clarify: the Today Show Katie Couric.

Not the CBS Evening News Katie (no offense).

The difference? The TODAY SHOW of course!! I am beyond obsessed with the Today Show. Watched it every morning before school Middle School through Upper School, and then whenever I could in college (but let's face it, that didn't happen often). I went through a phase (is 11 years considered a "phase"?) where I legit thought I would one day become Katie Couric's co-anchor. Ohhh life. May 31, 2006 was a sad, sad day (the day she left Today). Even without KC, I am still obsessed. These days, I consider myself lucky if I am running 5 minutes late trying to get out the door at 7 a.m. for work - because in those precious 5 minutes I get to watch the headlines. Nothing gets my day to a great start better than hearing ". . .this is Today with Matt Lauer and Meredith Viera." I swear if I didn't have to leave for work at 7, and instead could leave at 8, I totes would still get up early so I could make a cup of coffee (slash walk to Starbucks), sit on my couch and enjoy the wonderfulness that is Matt, Al, Meredith, Ann and Natalie. What a group.

Love it.

Anywho! One amazing aspect of the Today Show is their Summer Concert Series and they revealed it today! Good thanggg my company is BOMB and I get Summer Fridays. . .

May 14 - Sting (seen The Police in concert - Sting is a hottieeee)

May 21 - The Script ("Breakeven" - great jam - definitely a campus loop song. . . take note, C)

May 28 - American Idol winner and runner-up (will ML be there?)

June 4 - Justin Bieber (I used the term "Bieber Fever" in a conversation with P on Monday night. . .he is still confused)

June 8 - Christina Aguilera

June 11 - Rascal Flatts

June 18 - James Taylor and Carole King (James Taylor = first love)

June 25 - Maxwell

July 2 - Maroon 5

July 9 - Lady Gaga (Enough said.)

July 16 - Enrique Iglesias

July 23 - John Mayer (I like.)

July 30 - Carrie Underwood

August 6 - Train

August 13 - Ke$ha (I like your beard.)

August 20 - Keith Urban

August 27 - Katy Perry

HOT line-up!



America's Mom Idol

I just got back to my desk from an impromptu trip to JCrew with CMac, and the latest Daily Candy dedicated email had popped into my inbox. The email, titled "America's Mom Idol" really stood out at me. Not only do I LOVE American Idol, but I love my mom too! Usually I delete these emails, but when I read that the winning mom gets a trip to the American Idol finale, I knew I could spare a few extra minutes of my life to fill out the questionaire. ML loves American Idol more than I do! So this contest seems only appropriate for her to be entered in.

The reason I gave as to why ML is deserving: (this is SOOOOOO cheesy so bare with me, but for those of you who know her, you know that I'm so right, and she totally deserves this---even if you aren't an AI fan!).

My mom, ML, is not only MY idol, but she is the idol to everyone around her. Other moms wish that they had it in them to accomplish the tasks she takes on. Every time I turn around, she is volunteering on another committee, or spearing another fundraiser in the head. She does all of these things while managing to have a career, and 3 children. She is truly a Super Mom, and is the most deserving person I know to win the Mom Idol competition!

I will be voting every day until they announce the winner. Please don't enter your moms. It wouldn't be worth it-ML is in a whole different ballpark people...and you wouldn't want to get your mom's hopes up!

C-Mac: "I feel like a beatle from Chile"

My gchat conversation with C-Mac today.

C-Mac: hey

C-Mac: so

me: hi

C-Mac: i was watching "life" last night, you know the show on discovery channel. oprah's the narrator

me: yeah

C-Mac: im going to call you tonight to tell you a funny story

about the beatles in patagonia chile

(C-Mac has spelling issues, bear with her. Beatles = beetles)

and intercourse

im laughing outloud right now

me: FYI you got me excited about a story i thought you were going to tell me right now.

C-Mac: I feel like a beatle from chile

me: ok. . .

C-Mac: well basically there are these male beatles

and the bigger the claw on the beatle the better chance they have of banging a female beatle

me: and you think you're a beatle because...

C-Mac: aka the bigger the penis (humans) anyways

(still not following, but continue to listen, because with C-Mac, a story can take a sudden turn at any point with no warning at all.)

C-Mac: so the female beatle sits at the top of a 100 foot tree waiting for the beatle with the biggest clawl to mate with her

soooo these male beatles are competing for the female beatle and by competing they fight with other males and then whoever wins FLINGS the loser male beatle off the tree

this continues and multiple beatles are being flung

wellll finally the "king" beatle with the biggest "claw" reaches the female beatle at the top of the tree and starts to "mount" the female beatle

me: oh no. . .

C-Mac: after "fooling around" the king male beatle picks up the female and FLINGS HER OFF THE 100 FOOT tree


C-Mac: Sooo I've decided I was once a beatle from patagonia chile and I get "flung" off 100 foot trees whenever I have one of my New York nights!

C-Mac: they "make love" and the male beatle reiterates his feelings by flinging the female over his shoulder and off the tree.

Just wanted to give you a little glimpse into the exciting love life of C-Mac. . .

666 - Eek.

I just have to share because I am a little freaked out. My Gmail account says:

You are currently using 666 MB (8%) of your 7443 MB.

Eek! 666?! Freakyyy. I'll let you know if anything weird / scary / horrible happens to me.

Do old people think other old people are hot?

We've mentioned Ruminations before, and I thought it was time again to share a few.

I don't know why, but I always feel awkward whenever I see adults riding in the back seats of cars.

I hate when I think of something really great to say during a conversation but by the time I get a chance to speak, we're on a different topic. Do I let it pass and keep the good thought to myself, or do I awkwardly bring up the old topic again?

More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can’t wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that’s not only better, but also more directly involves me.

Do old people think other old people are hot?

How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?

Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go around and say their name and where they are from,I get so incredibly nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I'm from, this shouldn't be a problem...

One of the weirdest feelings is riding in your own passenger seat.

There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

I have an irrational fear of wasting a good outfit on an insignificant day. (Welcome to C&R's life.)



A Different Kind of Theme Party.

This summer I'll be attending "A Midsummer Night's Dream" theme party. When I hear "theme party" my thoughts immediately turn to the good ol' college parties - 80s, CEOs and Secretary Hoes, Golf Pros and Tennis Hoes (do I see a trend?), White Trash, Anything But Clothes, Rubix Cube, etc.

Even though the sioree isn't until July 31, naturally I have already started to look for some dress options. Here are my thoughts. I think of flowy and flowery when I think of Midsummer Night's Dream. Not sure why, but that's what I'm going with.

The frontrunner is this J. Crew Watercolor Garden Bridget Dress. I love the one-shoulder, and the print is really pretty. AND it's lavender - love it!

This Shoshana Scoopneck Dress could work. I feel like I'm looking for dresses that remind me of running / frolicking through a forest or something. . .ha? Eek maybe I need to re-read the Shakespeare classic.

Green is my favorite color, so I am always drawn to it (along with purple, ha). This is pretty (and Milly!) - Milly Corset Strapless Dress.

J. Crew Waterfloral pastiche Taryn Dress.

Long and flowy is also an option. Like this BCBG Strapless Printed Chiffon Gown.

The J. Crew Delphinia Gown seems perfect with the braided belt, but it's not really me. . .

J. Crew Silk chiffon Taryn Gown.

I have some time. . .but it's a start!

stumbled upon....

Every so often, R and I send each other links to various clothing and accessories that we stuble upon that TOTES remind us of our friends (but in most cases are not necesarily something we would buy...)!

Today, while shopbopping, I found this Mulberry Cheetah Ruby Bracelet that screamed HLR to me! (She may not be willing to rock it these days, but 3 years ago, this pink cheetah flare would have replaced her Yurman in a heartbeat!---you can't deny this one, HLR!)

You're welcome for thinking of ya!



when Hell freezes over.

HLR forwarded me this entertaining email this am. Don't get bored with the science like I did, and stop reading half way through. If you really don't have the patience or time to read the entire thing (it's not that long, so if that's the case, then you're either pathetic or your job is entirely too demanding and you should quit immediately...but then again, you have time to read our blog at work, so I'm assuming that's not the case), then skip to the end! It will certainly give you a chuckle.


The following is an actual question given on a University of Washington chemistry mid term. The answer by one student was so 'profound' that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well :

Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant.

One student, however, wrote the following:

First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different religions that exist in the world today.

Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added.

This gives two possibilities:

1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose.

2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell,then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.

So which is it?

If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year that, 'It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you,' and take into account the fact that I slept with her last night, then number two must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has already frozen over. The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore, extinct......leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a divine being which explains why, last night, Teresa kept shouting 'Oh my God.'

This student received an A+.

Knee slapper. Hope you enjoyed as much as R and I did (and Teresa apparently...)!



iomoi bliss

So remember when we told you about our love for iomoi? (Here too.) Well, if you're as hooked as we are, head over to one of our all-time fav blogs - Peppermint Bliss - she's giving away two lucite trays from iomoi! AHH!

Clearly, we are not as sweet as B, so don't be looking for giveaways here. . .HA!

There are a few guidelines to get into the running for the cute trays (hint: the reason we are blogging about this. . .)

Good luck! (But in reality, we really hope we win.)



men, please take note...

I titled this with the assumption that we have male readers...which I'm pretty sure we don't. So in that case, ladies take note...perhaps in case you come across this pig in any of your DC adventures....(and if you do, slap him across the face for me...thanks).

An anonymous friend of ours sent me this email that she received. Coincidentally B, the person of attack in the email, works two desks down from this anonymous friend of ours....This email has been spread like wild fire, and has even been posted on Late Night Shots. The first email is from B, sent to his now ex-girlfriend, A. Followed by A's response to B. (Don't you love how I seem to think I know these people...when in reality I have not a clue who either of them are...although I did try and find them on facebook...apparently their names are way too common...FAIL). Please enjoy...and by all means, stay away from this db.


I was going to give you my certificate for a 3 pound lobster to use with your parents at the palm, but I am so furious at you for dragging E into our issues that it would be unconscionable to do so. While I wish you the best and hope you can get the job at _____, I no longer have any hope for us. I will always be cordial should we run into each other in Georgetown, but please know that there is no possibility of us ever getting back together. The sooner you can move on from me, the happier you will be. Please leave me alone and let me move on with my life. Have fun with your parents.




The fact that you started this email by offering, and then withdrawing an offer for a “3 pound lobster at the Palm” – something I never asked for or even want – speaks volumes about the sort of person that you are and the amount of the respect that you have had for me throughout the course of our relationship. Additionally, your declaration that “there is no possibility of us ever getting back together” is something that I have known for a long time, but struggled to admit to myself. Now, I am happy to say that I am finally able to do so. B, from the very beginning, you have cheated on me, belittled me, demeaned me and brought out the absolute worst in me. I have never had the misfortune of being treated the way you treated me by anyone else that I have dated, ever. If I were to ever even consider dating you again, my family has said that they will, in short, disown me. All of my friends know what you have done to me, and I doubt they would have any respect for the sort of woman who would go back to a serial liar and cheater.

Let me summarize our problems, just for the record:

1. In the beginning of our relationship, I was 22 years old, and not in the working world. You used the fact that I went out a lot and had a little too much fun on occasion to justify cheating on me –repeatedly – with KB, a woman 13 years your senior, whom you have continued to see and sleep with from nearly the moment our relationship was over (and as recently as last Thursday night). I never once cheated on you, or even considered doing so – because I believe that when you commit to someone, you commit to them alone. You continued to express your feelings for her well over a year into our relationship, but continued to insist to me that “she means nothing to me” and “I could never bring her home to my family or introduce her to my friends.”

2. When you were in London, you slept with a girl that you met in a bar, and only admitted to it after she picked up your phone when I called it the next morning. You then told me that you did this because of “the problems in our relationship,” and that “she followed you home in a cab.” Are you kidding me?

3. Over Thanksgiving break this past year, you met a girl at Smith Point, took her home to my apartment (which you and I do not share) and proceeded to sleep with her in my bed – after being sure to knock over my shoe rack so she would not see that you had taken her back to your girlfriend’s apartment. When I confronted you the next day after finding her scarf on my couch, you lied and said you had no idea where it might have come from, and you then proceeded to tell me that you were concerned about our relationship – so I’d get good and worried about us and drop the subject. I only discovered the truth after asking my building manager if I could look at the tapes of the front door of our building, and watched you walk in, using my key, at 2:40 am, with another girl. Once again, you cried and apologized, and once again, you explained that "she followed you home."

4. Your complaint about me is that I didn't "make you smile or laugh." B, because you cheated on me so often and from the very beginning, I was never able to be myself - I was constantly trying to prove to you that I was worth being with, and hoping that you wouldn't drop me for someone else. You always did have the upper hand, and I was never able to relax with you. You can't cheat on someone in the beginning, expect them to get over it and be bubbly, happy and carefree. It just doesn't work that way. In retrospect, I never should have allowed the relationship to last past May of 2007.

5. You routinely called me a “dumb blonde,” actually patted me on the head when I made mistakes (seriously?), belittled me for my clumsiness, and told me that you were concerned that I would “drop our child” if we ever were to have one together. You were constantly cold and lacking in affection, and made me feel guilty for being affectionate toward you, in public or in private.

6. For at least the past four months, you have engaged in an inappropriate emotional affair with your coworker, EC. I’m not sure if you’re capable of understanding that emotional infidelity is the same – or worse – than physical cheating, but trust me, it is. It is NOT appropriate to share details of your relationship and private things about your girlfriend’s life with a girl that you have known for two months, and that you work with. It is NOT appropriate to go out to lunch with her, alone, two or three times a week. It is NOT appropriate to spend an afternoon discussing your respective failed relationships with her for four hours while your girlfriend (who left her phone in your car) waits for a ride home in the middle of a blizzard. I know for a fact that you have reached out to EC’s friends about a so called “plan of attack” for getting her to date you, and that you have wined her, dined her, and taken her to a concert in the hopes of doing so. My problem with EC is that she is so naïve as to think that this is how one acts with a male coworker…she is young, never had a real job before this one, and still does not know how things should be between colleagues. I do hope that she has the good judgment to avoid a relationship with you. I would never wish what you have done to me on anyone - and you will do it again, and again, and again.

I do know, however, that regardless of what you say, your behavior is not my fault. You cheated on your college girlfriend of two years –A – with your next girlfriend, J, who didn’t have a clue what was going on. You then proceeded to cheat on J with at least four different people that she knows of – as you know, she and I have been speaking. Finally, when times got tough and J needed you to step up and take responsibility for your actions (you know exactly what I am talking about, and most of Georgetown knows as well), you abandoned her and proceeded to sleep with KB the night on which she most needed you. One week later, while J was recovering from one of the most traumatic experiences I can even imagine, you were with KB at a James Taylor concert, having the time of your life. How could you do these things to people?

B, the one common denominator in all of your failed relationships is you. I know that you have been raised to think that you are the best – exceptional in some way due to your athletic accomplishments and the fact that you went to Harvard and spent one year at a British boarding school. All this aside, you are not excepted from common courtesy and decent human behavior, and if you continue to treat people the way that you do, you will find that you have even fewer friends than you do now – and you don’t have very many. Your reputation in Georgetown already precedes you, and many people know the wrongs you have committed. I have never had so many people approach me and tell me that they're glad I'm out of what seemed to be a truly stifling relationship as I have in the past month and a half.

I do regret that I was unable to let you go, even when it was obvious that I should have done so – but I used to love you and hoped that it could work. I have come to realize that you are not a good person –you may believe that you are deep down inside, but actions define a person’s character – and your actions have defined you in more ways than you could ever hope to overcome.


All I have to say is good for A, and thank GOD for the person that decided this email had to be shared with the world via the internet.

I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did...




P is headed to The Masters this weekend. I am jealous for a few reasons, but mainly because he might bump into the hottie of all hotties in the golf world - Adam Scott.

I have specifically asked P that if he runs into the pro golfer to please do one (or all) of the following:

a.) take a picture of him.

b.) take a picture with him.

c.) call me and hand the phone to him so the two of us can chat.

and finally (preferably. . .)

d.) steal a lock of that gorgeous curly hair.

And now, I will leave you with this image.

No Wonder C Loves Going to the Doc!

C, is this your gyno in Murray Hill?

From The Daily Intel:

Inspired by his own sex life, which was enhanced by the use of vibrators, Murray Hill–based OB/GYN Andrew Scheinfeld decided to become the first American in his field to sell a line of sex toys. But because some women might feel awkward having a man who resembles a hairless version of Christopher Lloyd's character in Back to the Future demonstrate how said items work, he leaves the hard sell to Brenda Catapano, 47, his "bosomy and effervescent" officer manager whom Details reports "tackles the job with infectious relish."

Read the rest of the story here. . .



The Harvard Sailing Team is Funny.

You MUST watch Besties with Testes - it's hilarious.

(Thanks N!)

p.s. the one on the left is cute. ha.

But not the kind that goes up your butt! HA. Lame joke.
But anywho I am in the market for a pair of wedge sandals. Here's what I'm thinking.

In typical fashion, three minutes after C's plane landed in NYC from from St. Thomas, she posted pictures on Facebook (hah jk C!). Also typical, I stalked her pics as soon as they were posted. I absolutely fell in love with our friend EJB's Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Luella Zip Wedge Sandals. How awesome are these? If only they weren't $405. . .however, I did hear that EJB was using my rationale and by the end of the trip they were a mere 100 bucks - not too shabby!

These Pelle Moda sandals might be a good substitute.

These J. Simps wedges look a little intense but still could definitely work.

Ahh my heart is still set on the Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent ones! What to do, what to do. . .



summer job for R?

OMG. R, H-Ster just sent me a casting call for Jersey Shore! I TOTES thing you should apply! You would fit in SO well with your Lilly P and Jack's! And according to the description, you fall into all categories that they require....

Casting Call: Doron Ofir Casting and MTV are casting for Jersey Shore, looking for new roommates for the Summer. Applicants must be at least 21 and appear to be younger than 30 years old. Candidates must apply online and follow the directions found at .

And according to the Jersey Shore Nickname Generator, they could call you "R-Scream!" PERF!

GOOD LUCK, R-Scream! I hope they choose you!



march madness=april winnings.

Whoop Whoop! (or in honor of ML and her Alma Mater's big win--YAHOO!)

Thanks to the expert advice from R (and my cousin ECQ), I have won my office bracket!

Now if you don't remember my strategies that I used to make it to the final round of my bracket (and in the end, winning the bracket), please refer to the gchat convo that R posted at the beginning of this madness! And in case you are wondering why I chose Duke to go all the way, it's merely because ML is a Blue Devil, and I think blue and white look great together.

To those of you who didn't have as much success...better luck next year. (Try the uniform's apparently proven to work).

Summertime Chi

I don't know if you've heard but. . .Chicago in the summer is BOMB. We Chicagoans are obsessed with the months of May - September. We live for these months. Probs because the other 8 months of the year we have to deal with the horrid winter (apparently there are only two seasons in this city - winter & summer).

Cubs games, kickball leagues (woop!), outdoor concerts, runs on the lakefront, outdoor eating, rooftop decks and summer festivals are all awesome summer activities in the Chi. Let's focus on summer fests because C (along with N and CMac!) will be visiting me and this amazinggg city for the Old Town Art Fair / Wells Street Festival in June!

Here's a rundown of the street festivals I'll be checking out in Chicago this summer:

June 12 & 13: Old Town Art Fair
June 12 & 13: Wells Street Art Festival
June 25 - July 4: Taste of Chicago
June 27: Chicago Pride Parade
July 9 & 10: Old St. Pat's World's Largest Block Party
July 17 & 18: Sheffield Garden Walk and Festival
July 24 & 25: Taste of Lincoln Avenue
August 6 - 8: Lollapalooza
September 24 - 26: Oktoberfest

I lied. I will not be attending Lolla (wahhhh!) because I am out of town that weekend, but I had to add it because, well, it's Lolla. If you're in town, you must go.

back to reality...almost.

So it's Thursday of my first week back into reality....I thought this week would be harder than it has been (although, I would still definitely rather be in the image above). But then I rememebered that I don't have work tomorrow (and neither does R!). Just to make 100% sure that I did not have to come back into this flourescent lit office at 8:30 tomorrow morning, I sent my boss, T, an email that read:

Subject: Tomorrow

Our office is closed, correct?

T responds:

Correct. You must be very haven't had vacation in 4 days...

ZING. He has caught on. I guess I wasn't as sly about leaving the office (every 2 weeks for a week at a time) as I thought I was.

I replied, just to reassure him that it was a good thing that we had a short week. Had to let him know that this was my way of easing back into reality.

Looks like I won't be taking any time off for a while...
