On Christmas wishlists. I'd like a life.
Ashley: and nice tumblers
me: which one?
Ashley: which one what?
me: I thought you were saying nice tumblr
me: like nice posts on tumblr
me: I'm a LOSER.
Hey there lovers of the Internet, Last week, a photo of the daughters of the Prime Minister of Spain emerged on the Interwebs. And we felt a little pang for the awkward adolescence we all knew. This week, we’ve moved from feelings of familiarity to outright mockery. Worse yet, the photo is on its way to becoming a meme. This is not like making fun of the Palin kids. Sarah Palin used her...

Someone should invent an iPhone app that allows you to speak like Chuck Bass. Like that “I Am T-Pain” app. No points. We’re just saying that would be cool. Even. Blair stole Chuck’s shoes. Nice. We’ve pulled that move, but usually it was to foil someone who is drunk into following us out of the dorm. Plus 2. When Serena showed up at the Sotheby’s auction in a rust-colored skintight bandage dress...
Shame on you California, Shame on you Gov....
The Riley Center does not advertise its location, in a three-story Victorian in San Francisco’s core. The center’s address is confidential to protect its tenants: dozens of women and children fleeing abusive relationships. While those who live at the Riley Center are often desperate for help, so is the center itself and dozens like it across California. Because of cuts in state financing,...
I've Changed My Address.

I am still watching Gossip Girl
akdobbins: joyengel: So you’re not alone, Sarah, and you’re slightly dead to me, Amanda. Whoa whoa whoa. Let’s reward honesty. I take it back. After making up with Jack, I’m on the look out for a new Internet nemesis. It is so obviously not you. Suggestions on other potential nemeses welcome.
I may be Armenian, but I am not Khloe Kardashian
The Swede sent flowers to my office today. 1/3 of my coworkers asked me if we were engaged. We’ve been dating for six months. Am I really at the stage of my life where flowers = engagement?

Best "yo mama" comeback ever.

All the Glee Haters

Joy: What are you guys doing for your “summer outing” Boston Colleague: Going drag racing Joy: So, like, racing cars with drag queens? That sounds like the best outing ever! Boston Colleague: Um, I don’t think that’s anyone’s definition of drag racing.

This link nicely sums up why
graceinsmallthings: Glee—particularly the Duffy (“Mercy”) number—tonight is so much like my years of show choir experience it’s painful to watch. We had a two-hour block of classes devoted solely to Aristocats each day, and then night and weekend rehearsals, as well, after we were all finished with our respective sports. We performed all over the South, up in NYC, Chicago, in Branson, Missouri...
thepoliticalpartygirl: Target Women: Back 2 School I wish someday someone would rockstare at me. Maybe I don’t posses enough blingitude… Sometimes I feel too much pressure, but then I remember what my mom said: I mean, school is the fashion show that prepares us for the fashion show of life!

Wherein the Swede is Serena and Joy is Dan
My biggest criticism of the Dan and Serena relationship (aside from their combined annoyance) was that whenever they found themselves in the tiniest bit of trouble, they immediately clung to the notion that they come from “different worlds” and so all was, of course, lost. It pains me to admit now that The Swede and I come from different worlds. At least it when it comes down to work...
Resolution Disapproving of Rep. Wilson's (R-SC)...
thepoliticalpartygirl: With 7 Republicans voting Yea, 12 Democrats voting Nay, and 5 Democrats voting Present. Now, this has been fun and all, but can we move on to more important things like: H.R. 317, recognizing the region from Manhattan, KS to Columbia, MO as the Kansas City Animal Health Corridor? Hey, I have an idea, WHY DONT YOU SPEND YOUR TIME PASSING HEALTH CARE REFORM!?!?!?!?!?
We did it, we survived.
It seems like all I hear on the news lately are stories of people and things dying. We’ve had the Summer of Love, the Summer of Sam and now, the Summer of Death. Lets take a little stroll down the cemetery lane to see its newest inhabitants: Michael Jackson Farrah Fawcett Ted Kennedy Patrick Swayze The last shred of Kanye West’s public respectability I for one am sick of death....
You know you've missed this
Ugh, Vanessa fell for Dan’s gay-looking half-brother. So, so correct. Plus 3. She’d have slept with Rufus long ago if she wasn’t concerned about getting her hoop earrings caught in his chest hair. Carter’s pants, throughout this entire episode, are flawless. Plus 1. — Why would Scott be looking creepily at his birth certificate while talking on the phone to his...
What's up with the Saucer Separation?
In the first season of Star Trek: TNG, there was a saucer separation just about every other episode. But then, in the later episodes, they never did it at all. Did they, like, forget how to do it or something?
