Ten Reasons Why Coming Home From Vacation Is The Best

Flag

In case you didn’t know, I’ve been writing these last couple of posts from Puerto Rico, where I’ve had one of the most awesome trips ever with my family and two of my best friends. However, with the sadness setting in over the thought of returning to the frigid stylings of New York City in less than twenty-four hours, I felt like I needed a little pick me up to remind myself that coming home from vacation isn’t always so bad. In fact, it can be the best! Here’s what I Read More…




Weekly Bitches: Hand Dryers

HandDryers

Putting positivity in its place! But only for a minute. I promise. To see what the Weekly Bitches are all about, look here. Otherwise, enjoy! In the history of the world, has a hand dryer ever succeeded at drying a person’s hands to even a reasonable level? I’m not saying I need mine to be on par with what a wind tunnel would do to a commercial jet during aerodynamics testing, however I’d like to be able to use one and then touch the knob of a bathroom door without Read More…




Only At The Airport

AirportRag

Around my thirtieth birthday, I decided it was time to kick this filthy little habit I had of reading gossip magazines. I’m not even sure when I started being interested in celebrity culture. I don’t remember buying US Weekly in high school but then I had a boyfriend with a Jeep, so I had better stuff to do. However upon leaving my twenties, I felt I could no longer justify supporting, not only the outrageous amount of attention and importance we place on movie stars but also the insanely invasive Read More…

Because slacking off can be hard work. Let me do it for you. You ever wake up at the crack of dawn and then can’t get back to sleep? Wait a minute. Of course you do. You have jobs. I should gets one for those at some point. In fact, I am! Very soon. But I’m not going to say what just yet. Instead I will continue to try and distract you from yours with my fantastic internet finds. Because it’s Friday and slacking is we do best. Here you Read More…




Weekly Bitches: Packaging

Packaging

Putting positivity in its place! But only for a minute. I promise. To see what the Weekly Bitches are all about, look here. Otherwise, enjoy! About a week ago, a shower curtain that I had ordered from Bed, Bath and Beyond arrived packaged in what appeared to be a former forest. From the size of the box itself to the paper filling, the wrapping was so excessive, I could only assume about a quarter of the species in the Amazon Basin were now searching for a new habitat on account of Read More…




Six Things That Suck About Living In The City

New-York-City-Skyline

Let me start off by saying that I understand some people get bent out of shape when anyone refers to New York as “the city” because it seems to imply that New York is the only city and somewhere like Sacramento might as well have tumble weeds and OK Coral style gun fights in the streets. That’s not what I’m doing here. I wanted to call this post Six Things That Kind Of Suck About Living In The City because I felt like people from lots of cities could relate Read More…




Weekly Bitches: The Comments Section

Comments

Putting positivity in its place! But only for a minute. I promise. Last week I started a new feature called Weekly Bitches which was intended to give us bloggers (or anyone who cared to leave a complaint in the comments section) a brief respite from the pressure we put on ourselves to be positive all the time. For weeks leading up to it, I had compiled a list of silly things that I found annoying and wished to address in this space. However, after reading the contribution made by Liz Read More…




I’m Addicted To ChapStick

Chapstick

You know the well is running dry when you’re doing posts about ChapStick but according to a friend of mine, ChapStick is one of the most commonly listed items amongst the top five things that women say they can’t live without in their online dating profiles, so I know I’m not alone in this. And I also know I’m probably not alone when I clarify that by “ChapStick” I’m not referring to that particular brand necessarily, but anything from Blistex to Burt’s Bees to YouDaBalm to whatever, so long as Read More…

Because slacking off can be hard work. Let me do it for you. Hey! Today’s Friday! This is usually the time of week when I tell everyone to stop doing their jobs and look at all these links I found because there will always be Monday and work is over rated anyway. However, that’s not how I’m feeling today! After a pretty pathetic December, I’ve found myself totally invigorated and refreshed in the new year, even going so far as to tout the benefits of a little hard work here Read More…




Weekly Bitches

Kelly Button Weekly Bitches-2-01 copy

Putting positivity in its place! But only for a minute. I promise. Bloggers, there’s something I’ve been meaning to talk to you about for a little while now and it may be a slightly sensitive subject, so I’m going to do my best to handle it in the most delicate and respectful way I know how. Yet if you’re a follower of this website, you should know not to expect much in that department, as I’m typically about as delicate as a bulldozer. I’ve noticed a trend amongst the lady blogs ever Read More…
