"A SHARK ATE MY LEG! LOOK AT THE TEETH!! -but we should really be nice to sharks, they’re just misunderstood. BUT LOOK AT MY SURFBOARD, A SHARK TOOK A BIG CHUNK OUT OF IT! -but sharks don’t really eat people or anything usually."
I tried these on at Nordstrom the other day not knowing, of course, that they’re $327 and not part of the Anniversary Sale. Gimme a break. Currently scouring Amazon and Ebay for some gently used, or trashed the fuck to hell I just need these damn boots on my feet by November, sheesh.
Also officially withdrew from NC State today. Big moment, bittersweet. All of my DG ladies are moving in a week and a half for workweek while I’ll be stuck here for another 21 long days. Might just have to fork over the cash so I can dry my tears on these glorious boots…
Am I the only one who loves this show? It’s just about a bunch of amateur home cooks competing for a bunch of money, but there’s something appealing about the judges and the contestants. Another obnoxious Chef Ramsay show, yes- but he’s almost likable in this one. I’d recommend it for a Tuesday night nothing-else-is-on time killer. Plus there’s a sassy gay guy who wears a different faaaaabulous chef hat every episode and this precious little Indian mom who is adorable.

I don’t know how many of you guys watched this tonight, but if you didn’t let me tell you- if you didn’t already love Harry Potter, you will now. Even with the fact that it was a Lifetime movie and even had a cheesetastic scene with magical floating candles as she was writing, it was still (relatively) really well done. The woman that plays Jo does it beautifully.
It really was glorious. A week at Cherry Grove, SC with the fam in a beach front condo owned by my very very extremely generous neighbors. It’s been a while since I’ve spent an entire week laying out on the beach from about 11-5 with a cold beer in my hand reading and playing with my 4-year-old nephew while talking shit about our beach Hottie McBody boyfriends with my sister. My whole body feels like it’s been burnt to a crisp, but the confidence you get after spending the year being so pale people squint at you to finally having some color is amazing. I feel like a bronzed beach goddess even though I probably look like every other Myrtle Beach whore that’s had too much sun nearly reaching Snookie Status. Whatever.
Fuck you, work tomorrow. Fuck you. Back to stress dreams about folding board shorts exactly right and getting yelled at for gripping a skateboard wrong. Back to minimum wage. Back to super cool coworkers and managers… it could be worse. Anyway… I had a really excellent week. I hope you all did to.
Also- I haven’t seen Harry Potter yet as I was at the beach without any superfans to dress up and go with. I don’t really want to talk about it.
Can you please blog or text me or something???
I have no clue what's going on in your life. I'm deprived.
I know, I suck. I’ve been in a little bit of a blogging funk lately. Here are some of the things I didn’t feel up for blogging about until now:
For my birthday, boyfriend and I went on a semi-romantic (enter lady troubles on day 2) mountain get away where we met my prodigy child brother with his shitty girlfriend who took us out to a fancy dinner in Asheville. For the rest of the weekend we cooked and shot off fireworks and drank lots of wine and Tecate and it was perfect.
Remember how excited/worried I was about that jewelry request from boyfriend? Well, it was somewhat justified. After I sent a list full of delicate necklaces and understated rings, I sort of expected something sparkly… he didn’t see it quite the same way. I ended up with two plastic Lilly Pulitzer watches with interchangeable bands. While his heart was in the right place, I couldn’t help but be an ungrateful bitch for just a minute. All was well though after a good laugh about how plastic watches may not have been the ideal choice for a birthday present for his serious girlfriend of over a year who asked for jewelry. I’ve worn it every day since.
This week I’ve been at North Myrtle Beach in my family’s neighbor’s fancy beach front condo livin it up Daniel style. My sister and 4-year-old nephew flew down from Arizona and brother is coming tomorrow. It’s been quite an adventure so far. Lots of silver bullets, South Carolina peaches, and sunburn.
Currently I’m extremely depressed because I will not be able to attend the Harry Potter premier. I even left my light up wand at home because even thinking about it too much makes me choke up. Seriously heartbroken. To make up for it, I’m trying to plan a day or two to make it to Chapel Hill to dress up in full HP gear with boyfriend and go to a matinée of the movie next week instead. Have no shame.
There you go, completely updated.
PS. I miss you big!! How’s that GoPass coming? I’m moving in extra early to hopefully make it up to Raleigh for a night or two to say hai and celebrate my last couple nights of freedom. I loooooove you!! I hope your summer is the best ever. Skype date soon?!?!
