stuff like that only works on agyness deyn and the like

sorry, lo. I know you've always been the semi-random friend of Lauren's who comes in and out of nowhere with no story really behind you but only moral support for Lauren which reached an all-time saccharin high last night, but what were you wearing when you guys went shopping at that store that they obviously used as a plug?

currently obsessed with

After making my way home from the all-too weird weekend that just didn't stop, I discovered that this brand New Target right by my house had finally opened after the who-knows-how-long construction period. Of course I just got in town, there's crap all over my floor, I have tons of schoolwork, etc. etc., but really-it's Target! Obviously I'm not going to pass this up.

So I used my excuse of needing to go to the pharmacy to go to the New Target. It was obviously really great and I bought all kinds of things like opaque tights and Post-It label things that I don't need, but I also went to the pharmacy. And if you've been to a Target pharmacy anytime recently, you probabely know what I'm talking about.

First of all, everything was really clean and well designed. Second of all, they had a damn lollipop tree (which I f-ing forgot to take advantage of, but whatever). Third, you get to pick a colour for the ring that goes around your prescription bottle! It's not like they have some colour they just give everybody unless they're five or anything! You get to pick it! No matter what! I realize how old this news is (like, years I think) but still, I am freaking out. Check out the following article , and let's give both Ms. Adler and NYMag (for the nice coverage) a round of applause. I mean, really.

And on top of all of this, the pharmacists were really freaking nice. What more can you ask for, really? boinng!

currently eating

So, no...I am not currently eating a plastic Trader Joe's bag (good for the environment!) But I am eating their Oat n Wheat Bran Swirls cereal. I couldn't find a picture, because the only thing that came up was an article about the calories in that cereal which I didn't even bother to look at. Anyways, this cereal is totally where it's at. It's cinnamon-y and crunchy, and tastes a little bit like a cookie-but not in that weird Cookie Crisp way. (No offense, guys.) Anyways, this cereal is highly, highly recommended and I will be eating it until I OD and move on to another boxed carbohydrate obsession.

thanks to bluedot for the image.

horrible bloggers!

Sorry about the delay, everyone. Midterms were this week, which means that bed time for us was at about 8 a.m.

Of course, in the midst of all this, I had time to figure out two very disappointing things:
1. The Hills wasn't new
2. Gossip Girl isn't available online until Saturday. Saturday! And since this is the only way I can watch Gossip Girl because of the aformentioned class that I have on Wednesday nights, this is awful news.

I spent way too much time searching both web sites for some sort of accidental link that would lead to a new, full episode of The Hills as well as Gossip Girl. Come on guys, is it really so much to ask?

A few more things happened tonight that I won't go into great detail on, but definitely happened:
1. A car next to us in traffic featured something that looked like a wagging dog's tail. But guess what? It was certainly not that, but instead it was something else.

Yeah. That's right.

2. We found ourselves in a few situations that were lacking lights all together. Sexy as it seems, this crowd doesn't handle things like that well.
3. This was earlier in the evening, but I had someone ask me about a wrap-top and how it should be worn. But instead of just asking in that way, this woman actually said, "Am I allowed to tie this in the back?"

No, bitch. You're not. Especially if you have to ask. Because if you do tie it in the back, someone will come and fine you with their fierce fashionista judgement.

I mean really. I never thought I would say this, but people think way too much about things.

Anyways, gang, enough complaining and crazy stories for now. I promise that there will be more updates soon!

Dunder Mifflin Infinity

I still have hope that the fourth season of the Office will be fucking great! Unfortunately it has not been the best thing I have seen recently(although it is the only show worth a damn on television-sorry Robin, I haven't seen the Hills or Gossip Girls so I cannot comment on those two gems!). Anyroad, The first thirty minutes were awesome! Jim and Pam were "outted" by Toby (a little too soon in my opinion); Dwight and Angela break up which was too sad for words, but I have faith that it is not over for those two star-crossed lovers; Kelly's whole pregnant confession was ruined by the promo video (way to go NBC); Ryan is a dick, but I never really liked him anyway. Fuck the last 30 minutes (except for Hotts Mcgee in glee over Ryan getting turned down by Pam!) WHERE ARE THE PRANKS??? Where are the awkward Jim and Pam moments??? Jim and Dwight shenanigans must be present soon for crying out loud! Gimme gimme more!!! (ala Brit)I want more. Hopefully some of the writers will stop screwing the pooch and make it magical like it has been the past 3 seasons!

Jim Halpert is still Sex on(middle america) Legs!!!

you want more? all right, i'll give it to you

In the video below (thanks to, we have Britney (bitch!)'s video for the obvious. All of this is really sad at this point, and I almost feel bad even talking about it for her sake. But I'm going to anyways.

This video really looks like an adult version of Kids Incorporated. On the real though, check out the lights, the exposed brick (but not in a loft-ish way), the leather-ish vest, and the long, way too dark hair. I'm waiting for Scott Wolf or whatever his name was to show up and show off those dimples.

Also, what exactly is going on? You think a story is going to happen the whole time with the blondies at the bar and then that dude that looks like one of my cousins, but nothing ever does. Plus, the blondies are laughing at her. I mean, what? I think there's already enough of that going around-no need to bit it in your video, Brit.

Also, this song goes on for about 45 seconds too long. All of the giggling and muffled talking/rapping/hip-hop guy who thinks she's cool and sexy but still "one of the guys" stuff is just too much for too long.

Sorry, baby girl. Better luck next time!

currently watching

One of the very last shots is amazing, as is the use of colour (obviously). And what a song!

Tuesday, October 2, 2007

sorry that the last paragraph in the previous post is impossible to read. i had some issues that were obviously not resolved.

the good, the bad, and the f-ing gross

the good:
-the fact that i finally purchased and received Factory Girl after months of convincing myself that I needed to save money and instead spending the $20 (or like $13, thanks to amazon or whoever the f I bought it from off of amazon) at target, ikea, trader joe's, etc. etc. etc. I realize that this movie didn't get a ton of critical acclaim, but my personal obsession aside, Sienna Miller really does a nice job as the beloved Edie. I found it to be quite convincing, particularly for a character with so many ups and downs.
-receiving Nylon (who I am absolutely dying to work for, by the way) in the mail along with
Factory Girl. and I could not ask for more...bwawwhhh (guitar blare, a lá mccane or whatever)

the bad:
-the fact that I have yet to watch last night's Hill's because I have class while it's on. I know, who has class at 10 at night, but I certainly do. I saw the clip where Heidi leaves during dinner and Spencer acts like the douche ass he is on Gawker, but other than that, I'll have to watch it online tonight and report back with my feelings.

the f-ing gross:
-this guy. Read on and try not to freak out as much as we did. Or do, actually, because this is ridiculous.
