We've got some great stuff on ModernPooch.com right now...check it out!
I just got an email from someone I was friends with while at Taipei American School during my 7th & 8th grades. The great thing about this email is that it reminded me of something I had forgotten...
I USED TO BE A CHEERLEADER.
...we had our outfits designed to show our belly buttons...
You've all been bugging me for previews of me and Jonah on our honeymoon! Gosh! Well here it is.
P.S. Taken in Paris '04 on our honeymoon test run.
P.P.S Jonah never ever takes his shirt off.
This weekend, these two people seemed to think it was ok to come into EYEBEAM, an Art & Technology Center (not a Drop Down To Your Knees & Give a BJ In The Bathroom Center) drink the champagne served at the Contagious Media Awards Ceremony, get all turned on by the art and technology and make our bathroom theirs. Classy, lassies!!
I suppose we should all be a little more careful when extending the 'make yourselves at home' offer...
If you freeze in movie theaters I now have a solution for you...Movie Toweling!
It all began when we tried desperately to see Brad & Angelina (Mr. & Mrs. Smith) on opening night, before we could benefit from any word of mouth wisdom. Tickets in hand, we realized since we were wearing tanktops and skirts we either had to go home and call it a night or freeze through the movie...
Not if there was a Rite Aid nearby! Towels were in aisle 13 and Lily checked for wrapability.
No problems and attractive too!
This is what a successful movie toweling looks like!
One limitation of this method: It provides warmth only and does not protect you from bad movies.
You know, I've been waiting to say this until after the trial out of fear of appearing superficial but...Michael's been looking more handsome recently!
If I could capitalize on all the in-efficiency around me I would be rich!
Don't be fooled by the angelic light, the blondeness and the gate.
They were out and attacking in no time:
There's Jonah's knee shield:
Lily tried negotiating:
But it was useless:
This picture was too frightening in color so I've cleaned it up for you and look at how charming it is in black and white:
This one's for the reader:
who's always cold, no matter what so I realized the other day why I haven't minded this NYC weather that's been persistently hot and humid for days: I'M FINALLY NOT COLD!!!!
Bring it on, weather!
Thanks to Kenyatta for reminding me of Joi's post addressing this comment issue: This blog is my living room and if you can't behave, I'll ban you.
Sometimes comments are interesting, more often they're not and most often they're a forum for haters and psychopaths. My Dear T-Mobile post made it to the front page of the Huffington Post and of course I had naively allowed comments as I once thought that was the true, democratic spirit of blogging but you know what? I'm over it. In my everyday life I choose not to hang out with annoying or stupid people so why would I open myself up to that online? Good question. Done. Maybe in the rare case where I am asking specifically for feedback on a focused topic I may allow comments but until then....poof! It's as if they never existed.
Those who have commented on topic, kindly and interestingly, thank you! Everyone else, you can suck the big one.
I recently received a text message from you kindly alerting me to my overdue bill. For this courtesy SMS, I thank you.
I called 611, the convenient 3 digit number you graciously provide for the ease of customers, and an automated voice told me that my account was overdue $857.00 due to 'minutes overage'.
IF YOU CAN TEXT ME THAT MY BILL NEEDS TO BE PAID WHY CAN'T YOU TEXT ME THAT I'VE GONE OVER MY MINUTES?????!!!!!!
YOU OBVIOUSLY HAVE A HANDLE ON THE TECHNOLOGY!!
I REALIZE IT'S HARD TO SPEAK UP WHILE YOUR POCKETS ARE GETTING FATTER AND FATTER BUT WHY??? WHY??? WHY???
Perhaps I hadn't reached the $1000 mark when the courtesy text message kicks in.
Thank you for your consideration. Please don't shred this.
My Obachan is the best. I only wish she lived closer so we could hang out instead of me missing her and salivating over everything she sends me.
Summertime is near!!
