Mindy & Me: Duante Diallo

As promised, today kicks off my week of “Mindy & Me”, a collection of concerns/happenings that Mindy Kaling and I have in common based¬†on her book, “Is Everyone Handing Out Without Me (and other concerns)“. (I secretly hope she reads one of these, and/or any other posts on my blog, so she can see how […]

Froid, Frio, Freddo

Froid (French) Frio (Spanish) Freddo (Italian) I thought that maybe saying “cold” in other languages might make me feel less abused by the unbearable winds that slapped me unapologetically¬†across the face this morning. I was wrong. It still feels just as cold as it did this morning and I’m frustrated. What is with this weather? […]

George Clooney

I haven’t felt inspired to write anything as of late out of pure exhaustion and lack of time, until this morning…when I saw the cover of the Esquire December 2013 issue. George Clooney is timeless. Look at this man. After stumbling on this cover, I was immediately inspired to Google image him in his glory […]

I Broke Tears for Breaking Bad

You know a show is well done when you’ve never watched an episode and you manage to cry during the series finale. Last night, after I watched the Jets lose to the Titans and the movie Couples Retreat, my sister told me that she’d be changing the channel to AMC by 9PM to watch it. […]

Marriage & Jessica Biel

Is it just me or does marriage look REALLY good on Jessica Biel? I didn’t even recognize her in this photo at Fashion Week on WhoWhatWear. I guess being married to JT does the job? Here are some other recent “WOW” Jessica Biel Timberlake moments:

Listen Up Magazines

Dear ELLE/Hearst specifically, This isn’t the first time you do this to me, and I’m sure it won’t be the last, but I need to vent. I know sales are ROUGH but you shouldn’t be assuming that because I click-through from your email marketing, and sign up for a giveaway, that I want to subscribe […]

Make August Count

Gone are the days of doing nothing from 6PM until bedtime, i.e. my life for the past few months. My awesome weight loss results feel like eons ago and the pounds I’ve gained back are haunting me everyday. I’m dedicating August, AKA “last-month-of-free-happy-life-because-I-start-my-Masters-in-September,” to getting off as much of the 30 lbs I put back […]

Comedy & Boat Parties

I guess I should be joyful that my birthday is this week? Meh, I don’t know. I’m a bit unimpressed with turning one-year-closer-to-30, but I’m going to try to make the best of it. Since my sister’s graduated, come home, and not paid attention to me, I’ve decided to reassess my fun-o-meter because I’m only […]

JCPenney & Hitler

Did you guys hear about this? This JCPenney billboard in California? Apparently everyone driving by it thinks it has a “striking resemblance with Adolf Hitler.” It honestly took me a while to really see it, and now that I do… I can see why people would think that. But Jesus, talk about beating a dead […]
