for me, bubble tea is kind of like a donut…i don’t drink or eat either for a year or two (possibly longer) and then i get the craving where it sounds like such a good idea. however, once consumed, i feel slightly ill and remember why i haven’t had either in a year or two (possibly longer). i think it’s the pearls, they make me feel bleh.
argo is still (arguably) the best tea chain in town, though.
you know you are a multi-level marketing scheme when...
you are the one calling the potential employee around the clock, and not the other way around. dearest aegon world financial, you give yourself away too easily… next time, don’t stalk people while they are at their Real job, give out the name of the company instead of trying to hide it under name changes and pseudonyms, and most importantly, make it just a tad more challenging to find all of the dirt on your place (hello, rip-off report was the FIRST thing that came up on google.) got it? k thanks.
to my surprise and delight i saw one of my old fellow interns from minty fresh featured in the redeye yesterday for metromix’s rock ‘n’ vote. she is super talented and deserves all of the recognition and success that is coming her way.
i only care about 3 things: the catholic church, swimming and dancing.
i kept busy yesterday by watching the original grey gardens on youtube. it’s a doc that follows jackie o’s aunt and cousin ( both named edie) living in a run-down mansion in the hamptons. clearly, the best part is how comfortable they both are being completely insane (the opera singing, pantyhose costume, and desire to only date libras, etc) and okay with their personal situations. it struck me as very whatever happened to baby jane? except it’s real life and the stars are quite endearing.
i just received my direct deposit and it isn’t looking too bright. i mean, i know the goal is for the girls to all look thin and pretty so we can sell their overpriced clothes, but really? being only able to afford water, bread, fruit (i have discovered a secret way to get it for cheapsies), and canned soup is going to do a number on my size.
you will be able to find me at matilda on future thursday evenings soaking in the eclectic atmosphere and drinking and eating more things than i probably should. a super good find just right down the street.
today was absolutely divine, my manager actually encouraged me to play dress-up, which meant i got to try on that marc jacobs sundress. she practically had to pry it out of my hands. we all learned that robert rodriguez is absolutely fabulous (and not for people with hips) and that see by chloe is bohemian adorable, if not slightly crazy looking. my favorite looks from the afternoon were
a nanette lepore wrap dress and this little number:
i would probably commit crazy acts to own this theory dress. i’m going to go ahead and say that when it goes on sale it will be mine.
