I am a moldy-cheese-thrower-outer.
Ok, to be fair, I had 2 large glasses of wine and 3 beers. But still.
I will never learn my lesson.
Tomorrow is Friday.
The associates in my office are putting together a wine gift basket for another associate who is getting married. We are all buying a nice bottle of wine (she’s a wino) and I’m in charge of getting a “basket” and fun/useful/festive accoutrements.
This girl is Kate Middleton II- any ideas for someone who is ultra stylish and already has everything she could ever want/need? (I’m not kidding.)
Specifically the “basket”- what are fun alternatives to an actual BASKET? Be creative for me please?
I can’t bring myself to eat a single thing I bought from the grocery store.
No matter what it is, if it’s homemade or from my pantry, it’s not good enough.
It’s been a while!
I’m experiencing a Vegas hangover aka playing catch-up on sleep and normal bodily functioning. (pics and stories soon…)
For now, here’s what I’ve got:
I was just officially called a 2nd-year Associate in an email.
Just ordered 3 pairs of shoes from Banana, but the hot yellow banana colored dress in my cart sold out before I clicked “purchase.” (sad.)
We are driving through Buffalo this weekend on our way to a wedding. Is it totally lame or totally acceptable to stop and get wings somewhere?
And also crazy.
I know I’ve written before about how much I hate the Southwest line-up situation. I especially hate the crazy people who didn’t learn line etiquette in kindergarten and still get all pushy as 45 year old adult travelers in an airport. Confession: I think I just became one of them. It’s like a race to the bottom- if everyone else is doing it, I need to do it too. You’re primed and ready, waiting at your computer screen 23 hours and 59 minutes before your flight to sign in? Well then I will do that too.
At least this time I have an excuse- a 4+ hour flight necessitates a good seat and therefore justifies this kind of behavior, amirite?
That 50 Shades of Grey scene when A&C go on that glider ride…? Just realized it’s probably ripped right off of the Thomas Crown Affair (which I’m watching right now).
As if I didn’t hate that book enough…
Thanks for all the Vegas recs!
Thursday night, we’re leaving for Vegas with our best-couple-friends (there must be a better name/acronym for this relationship…).
I’m a virgin to Vegas- what do I bring? No, I’m serious.
Like, do I need to get all SATC Vegas episode? I refuse. I need to bring at least a few pairs of flats. Also, the heat- I will die.
Any recommendations on food/drink/shows/places to go?
Taken in 1942, this photograph documents the internment of over 100,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans living on the Pacific Coast. Despite the fact that they were wrongfully excluded from society, it wasn’t until 1988 that DC apologized for their race prejudice and war hysteria.
That scene in My Best Friend’s Wedding where J-Rob’s email is saved in Kimmy’s dad’s outbox and then he tells his secretary to send everything in his outbox out….remember that?
It’s weird to see old (“old”) movies with computers the size of microwaves and telephones with curly-q cords. They are just so…old.
But that stressful, anxiety ridden moment where she isn’t sure if she should send the email right then or save it for later? That has not changed since 1997.
every. freaking. day. of. my. life.
I’m just so bad at hitting send on important emails. And after I do, there’s a 99% chance I read the email one last time. As if it would make a difference, right?
Tonight is for take-out sushi, boxed wine, baseball & laundry.
I was eating a plum, reading from a very thick reference book at my desk. A partner stopped as he walked by my office and said, “I thought you were eating chocolate donuts out of a large box.”
Because apparently that’s something I would do.
I hate most women sportscasters.
Wearing my new sunglasses and slightly too-grandma flats, sitting at a table by the farmers’ market with a bag of nectarines and reading my book when some foreign proselytes come up and ask me if I believe in the Bible.
You can’t buy a monogrammed (non-returnable) item as a wedding gift when you have no idea what the bride’s last name will be after the wedding.
My filthy white MacBook from 2008 is on its last legs. It works, but it’s slow, and I’m impatient, so that’s not a good situation. I didn’t love-love it, but I did sorta-love it (even though it was a lemon and had to have the hard drive replaced twice while under warranty). However, now that I only really use my home computer for googling useless things like “Can I freeze cilantro?” “Will soymilk give me cancer?” and “George Stephanopoulos phone rings on air,” I’m not so sure I need to spend $1K on a computer this time around.
I know next to nothing about computers/laptop shopping, and I don’t really want to change that, so maybe one of you has recently looked into this and can pass along your wisdom. My questions for you are:
- Do you have a not-so-expensive computer that you like/love? Let’s say around $500 (NOT refurbished/used, NOT teeny tiny, and NOT gigundo).
- Any brands in particular you recommend or want to boycott for the rest of your life?
- Where do I get coupons and sh*t like that? Obviously eBates, but what else? I feel like only suckers buy computers for the advertised price without some sort of deal.
The one thing I am sitting at work thinking about is the one thing I can do nothing about at work.
