Cry (Ribbit?) For Help
Remember when this cute little guy appeared in my room a few weeks ago? Well, two of his brothers showed up last night. And when I opened my bedroom door this morning, his sister was sitting outside waiting for me. This is no longer cute, or funny, or silly, or good for an anecdote. I live in a house beset by one of the effing plagues, and I want out.

This story involves a five-buck-club movie card. I went to the Kerasotes this weekend with two friends. Is “Rachel Getting Married” on the five-buck-club? Yes! It is! I reach in and find that I have only 4 ones and I don’t want to use my debit. I have a $10 bill, a friend offered. I handed her my 4 ones, set the $10 down to pay for the two tickets and fished around for my...

I try to remind myself on a daily basis that Natalie’s supposedly a terrible person, but it’s a battle I can’t win Highlight of the night for me. Yes. This was my favorite.

The Jessie Spano Effect →
Interesting little essay about twentysomething women’s reluctance to identify as feminists in the wake of Jessie Spano. I’m not going to place all the blame on Ms. Spano, a.k.a. pill-poppin’ Mama, but I am going to add a “Saved by the Bell” google alert to my inbox. Ka-ching.

Porter Airlines →
What an adorable airline! Pandas! Squish! This makes me want to fly from Chicago to Toronto just because.
A Girl World Closes, and Fans Mourn →
Not sure how I missed the boat on this one… but I am really bummed about Domino’s demise. I subscribed after picking up the first issue off the rack years ago. I’ve never had a magazine I subscribed to die on me. Granted, the magazine had some expensive stuff and I didn’t even really have a home or life to decorate, but I liked the magazine. It was sort of an escape, a...
Sex and the City Sequel: SJP & Co. Make It... →
This. is. ass. I’m sure the contrived conflict in this one will be that Carrie gets pregnant and she has to deal with the wacky repercussions of that (ewwgross vomit on my Manolo Blahniks! Phewey!). Also, she probably will have a major career crisis because she’s not the single gal anymore and someone will probably step in (enter token black woman who is not Jennifer Hudson, again)...
