one. My financial panther finally agreed to an appointment with me on Sunday after asking him for over a month. Does it mean you have a bad financial planner when he tells you you should get the more expensive (by $1,000 more) camera between the two you are thinking about? He also told me I had very republican thinking for which I almost decked him. He also told me not to worry about my money. Did I mention that I'm now down almost $4,000? He still owes me ice cream. I think one of these might help. two. You know what's weird? A...

one. Josh and I met up on Tuesday for dinner at Irish Times. I like that place because they play real Irish music and the people who work there are actually Irish. I ate Irish stew and bitched about my life. It's good when friends actually are there to listen when you need them. We decided on a few things: 1. We're both getting Vespas and are scootering across the country. Mine is going to be pink. 2. We both had thought about buying the Cock Robin. I suggested we also buy the empty place next door and open Cock Robin After Dark (90210...

The concept of taking a bath is lost on me. Yesterday, on lunch break from jury duty, after a stressful night, after a stressful morning, I decided to ditch out on going to work and go to Macys to stuff myself with Swedish meatballs and mashed potatoes. The last time I was in that particular Macys was during Lollapalooza when Lindsay dragged us along so she could stock up on her favorite Lush bath products. While eating my lunch I got the idea in my head that I should buy a bath bomb and that I should take a bath. Baths...

So, I'd been asking MK for the last two weeks if we could get ice cream together and talk. First, I needed a financial meeting because I was really upset when my funds dipped over $1,100. Second, I justified that this meeting should include him buying me a sundae to make up for him losing my money. And third, I've just been feeling generally shitty about a lot of things lately and just really wanted someone to talk to and a shoulder to cry on. So for two weeks I've been asking for ice cream and he always said he...

1. I went to visit two men in a hotel room last night. Use your imagination. 2. In case you have no imagination I went to visit Sid and the guy he works with in their hotel room. I brought them brownies. We watched Wipeout. It was funny. 3. Apparently the last guy I actually dated is engaged. 4. Not that that bothers me in the he's getting married way or why not me way (I actually think they make quite the perfect couple and am very happy for them). More just in the I seriously need someone in my life kind of...

1. I am NOT going to Nashville this weekend for work. I am NOT going camping this weekend in Indiana. I AM going to Champaign this weekend though. :-) 2. This is funny. 3. Why do I not just order my sandwiches without lettuce instead of picking it all off? 4. I use Movable Type to create my blog. They just introduced a TON of new features if I upgrade that i could use to turn my blog into a whole social network. Forget facebook, you can be on VALbook!!! 5. I've been looking a lot at wedding photographer sites lately to try to...

I finally just did it and signed up to take a photography class. Maybe I will finally learn what the heck I am doing and stop pretending. I made a list of the people I know who are getting married still. The list includes 2 Joshs, 2 Jens, 2 Robs, and 3 Joes. I made a list today of why I am never going to have a good relationship. There are three points. I can't share them. I finally ordered books of my photos from Amsterdam and the hot dog eating contest. I ordered from blurb. I haven't printed any photos in a...

So as a web editor (read: web geek) and e-marketer (read: email geek) it's part of my job to get tons of emails from companies and actually look at them and read them and see what they are doing. Tough job, I know. Today I got two emails: one from Abercrombie, one from Hollister. Abercrombie owns both brands and apparently they are so obsessive about being conformist that they can't even make an effort from distinguishing the "California" lifestyle from "New York." ...
