Puppies and Nina and Collars and Lena

My dear readers! I survived the 10 year college reunion, albeit barely! Let's just say there was a lot of free beer and a lot of people I hadn't seen in a decade and it was overwhelming... in a good way! The 20 minutes no one could find me? I had locked myself in a bathroom and was working on the play I'm directing, just to have a little brain break.

As a little brain break for y'all on this Friday afternoon, let me shower you with things I have been thinking about lately, or have been sent to me.

First of all - wtf how is it Friday? I have been a day behind all week. AND I just realized that I have Monday off, which is awesome because that means that I have NOTHING planned during the day because I thought I'd be working. Reader Sara sent me a photo of the cutest little dog ever and this is how I feel right now.

I will take the dog AND the coffee, please.

Another thing we need to talk about is Academic Nina Garcia, my new favorite tumblr. Thank you so much to Reader Jeff (aka TES) for alerting me to the beauty and hilarity that is this site. It's a good reminder that the most basic advice is applicable in all areas of life: DON'T BORE NINA.

And then Reader Elle alerted me to the, ahem, detachable decorative collars that are "all over New York right now," according to Ms. Elle. Let's talk about this because the sparklefarkle Peter Pan collar phenomenon is one that apparently some people think I would like because it is worn around the neck. NOT SO FAST. I'm sure there are women who can pull this look off beautifully, but someone please tell me the difference between this:

and this:

Friends don't let friends wear 2012-era dickeys. Or if they do, they point said friends to the ones that are on sale. Have a little self respect and at least get the gold sequined one.

Last but not least, let's have a talk about Lena Dunham. I love Girls; I think it's stupid good. This is actually surprising because I don't tend to enjoy entertainment that is based off uncomfortable situations and characters who are sometimes really not good people. I'm willing to say it outloud: Bridesmaids was difficult for me. I just felt so awkward and upset the whole time. How is Kristen Wiig's character supposed to pay for all that stuff?! I was really worried!

Anyway, back to Girls and Lena. I don't have too much bad to say about the girl. She's a genius writer, I love her haircut, and I am really jealous of how much she has accomplished at such a young age but...




  1. I believe that you just made "DON'T BORE NINA" our new life mantra.

    Good work.

  2. I'm catching up on a lot here, and regarding the Bridesmaids thing, I have to say THANK YOU. I was so uncomfortable the whole time! It's the story of a sad woman who is realizing that she is loosing or has lost her best friend. HAHAHA! Hilarious! No, it made me sad.
