You been jeepin behind my back?
I’ve been absent for about a week now because life has been hectic. Started a new job last Monday, moved to Indianapolis this Friday, got engaged Saturday, bought my first Hummer on Sunday. Ya know, the yooj. I get up, I go to work, I make dinner, my life is boring. I guess this is what being a grown up is like. I guess this is what a grown up’s bedroom looks like: Yes. My bedroom...
The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
When I put on my pair of pantyhose this morning, I realized they were ripped, so that I couldn’t wear pantyhose with my skirt, and I looked like a dummy at work. And on the way to work, a car full of Irish Dancers cut me off, and I slammed the horn and had to swerve to avoid a wreck. I got to work an hour before my boss, so I would have to stay an hour late, because we don’t have time...
Teen angst is so trendy
There’s been a healthy dose of buzz about this movie: “American Teen,” a Sundance darling, is a documentary about 5 high school students in Warsaw, Indiana who intermingle, have issues, go to prom, get way too close to the camera with their acnefied faces to deliver sobbing soliloquies about the pangs of adolescence, and somehow come out on the other side of graduation with a...

I’ll admit that I read this story for the flashy headline, but I finished it for a different reason. I guess no matter what age we are, everybody wants to love and be loved. This is actually a very touching tale of a very interesting, well, November/December romance I guess you could call it.
Wah wah wahhhh

Things We Don't Get: Why Is Shia LaBeouf So... →
I wasn’t quite sure how I felt about Shia LaHowDoYouPronounceMyName, but I think after my perusal of the latest GQ and seeing him ham into an interview that was supposed to be Harrison Ford’s, I feel sort of the way about him as I do about bands like the Shins, who everyone OMG LOVES after they hear them on The OC. I wanted to like Shia, but now that everyone else thinks that the sun...

I didn't even get to say googlebye
Farewell old friend: I fear change: Google says icon reflects “simple, playful and unique brand” I think it reflects that Google has daddy issues, or, as my friend Rachel said: “the new icon is like the old icon’s slutty 8-year-old sister.” So true.
Any way the Baldwin blows
Me: Alec is definitely the best Baldwin, and then Stephen and then Alexis ...
Tony: Alexis? Alexis Arquette? Alexis Arquette, the transvestite, is a better Baldwin than Billy or Daniel?
Me: I got confused! Alec, Stephen, Daniel and then Billy.
Tony: Billy is way better than Daniel! Daniel was only on that show about drug addiction.
Me: Nooo, Daniel was in ... Daniel is better!
Tony: (searching IMDB) William Baldwin ... He was in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," "The Squid and the Whale" ... Holy Shit! Billy was in "Backdraft" AND "Flatliners" Billy Baldwin is a GOD! He might even be better than Stephen.
Me: He is NOT better than Stephen. Stephen was in "Bio Dome" with Pauly Shore!
and later, in reference to our hatred of Nicholas Cage ...
Tony: Oh, fuck that guy, I would make out with Daniel Baldwin before I even shook hands with Nicholas Cage.
