Shopping List

egads i need to get to the mall tonight!
so much to see so much i need so much to buy!

I am looking for a replacement for FCUK girl since i am almost out and my perfume tray would look barren if i dont have an attractive bottle in its spot.

Okay i have a confession-I am not as perfect and flawless as i appear. i know shocking isnt it. time for a new concealor since i am scrapping out the remains of my last one with a lipstick brush.

Bronze is still IN right?? like i care-am buying these calvin kleins anyway becuase 1-i have never owned a pair of Calvins and 2 cuz i just got my tax refund and some of it has to go to help the economy. soo really these shoes are charity (and besides the nice bronze will match my shiny halo).

And i dont mean to alarm anyone but mothers day is in 2 weeks!! I know it is soooo hard to plan past cinco de mayo but your mom doesnt want a bunch of empty corona bottles with limes in them so get shopping.
Time for some link mania:
You Knit What
Crib Candy
Musing From the God of Cities
Gretchen's Closet
Lady Licorice

Soldiering On

Everything is just being a pain in the ass today -except for my loverly friends reg and jennifer who were keeping me IM company while i bitched about my bad mood and its cause. I had a lovely post planned centered around the clearence section of Bluefly but my broswer, blogger and the bluefly site just arent getting along today. And i really just have NO patience for this shit today. i sorry i am sure this is just residual frustration that my gorgeous set of 120 colored pencils that i have been anticipating since last week has still yet to make an appearance on my door step . BOOOOO. sigh (at least my new camera is a DREAM). and i had to drop a bunch of money on more supplies for my class that starts on Thurs. I had best get in a better mood soon since am going to be a guest at kts for dinner tonight. thank god that even if i am still a lil monster, she can handle it. She has really really big wine glasses ;) well no that i have ranted i feel much better. I will attempt getting these pics onto this post again.

ivory beaded chiffon skirt
$76.49 SALE
I just thought the hem line was gorgeous

Alexia Admor
burgundy shimmer lace rope waist dress
$100 SALE
I really had no idea what a treasure the clearance area of Blue Fly could be in terms of dresses!

Via Spiga
black wool blend 'Cubo' coat (with leather trim!!)
$245 SALE
I am not really into coats but if i was i would soooo be buying this. I think it is the rainy windy weather that is just never ending here putting me in this coats path.

Eva Franco
turquoise knit double halter tank
$55 SALE

Really like the double string halter -makes a nice unique neckline.

While there are some def delights in the clearance area-there is also a lot of crap -dont waste your time on the shoes, handbags or jewelry -is too disappointing for words.

OOOOOOOO my gawd
SEE DO YOU SEE WHY I AM SOOO PISSED!!! I do not know what is going on with these pics that they keep disappearing even though they are in the html code. ooooo the frustration! GRRR christ i figured it out -too bad it required me repoublishing after each pic to guarantee its appeareance. SEE the sacrafices i make for you all!! i need a drink now.


Funny cuz its true

Chick #1: Ahh! Why am I, like, sweating?
Chick #2: What is your shirt made of, cotton?
Chick #1: Well, it's from Forever 21, so it's probably dead Chinese children.

Well you do get what you pay for there. . . .


Big Big Plans

Man my weekend is just exploding with goodness. I am going to my moms for dinner and carol has requested mac n cheese. What a way to start the weekend!!
My new camera AND my 120 set of colored pencils are coming this weekend. (personal memo-have GOT to remember to buy electric pencil sharpener since my delicate hands were not made for the manual labor of sharpening 100+ pencils) So obviously i will not be leaving the house until 8:05 monday morning when i return to my work cage. Any guesses on how many bad pics of my cat sleeping i take this weekend??? i will estimate a conservative 28 or so.
In case you all are still bored and need some more shit to fil your internet surfing time
THIS site is full of random pics and shizznit. enjoy the time waster
Candy supersized with an english accent hold any interest for you?? GO HERE -if nothing else is quite and education in the names of chocolate and supermarkets across the pond. ;)
and i just wanted to make sure that my brother sees THIS.

See ya lator alligator! have a neat-o-rama weekend.


Do You not own a Mirror?

I had a lot of fun roaming around sites that normally have really cute clothes but couldnt help but pull these items that on the hanger maybe cute but once put on are a whole different nightmare.

Awfully loud shirt for being pastel. Awfully ugly for mashing up a V-neck and a button up Mandarin collar and a drawstring waist and brik-a-brac time. No actually is just the right amount of ugly for combining all that.

Is upper calf sag really an attractive silouette for the spring? "Pump them as you like, higher, lower, somewhere in the middle. The very elastic cuff at the buttom alowes you to play with length." Ummm i think someone hasnt gotten over scrunch socks from the 80's. . .

Once, Twice, Threeeeeee times the ugly shoes for your pleasure. .

Does any one else see the resemblance to Animal from the Muppet show in the orange and pink trim of these heels??? Even a stodgy pink brooch can't mature these babies.

I can just soo imagine dying, going to hell and my eternal punishment being having to luge around rocks while wearing these shoes. they just look like hell's version of cement shoes.

If you squint your eyes and tilt your head a lil these shoes look just like my cat sleeping. Despite being the cutest Hunter-boo in the world, i have never had the desire to wear anything resembling my cat on my feet.

I added a bunch of links to the right so if you happen to notice that something doesnt work -let me know. Do your part to make notenoughpurple awesome!

For my lil sister go HERE and check out this bag. I find it most wonderful for YOU.


Does this make me look fat??

Anyone out there dumb enought to try and buy any of these??


Grapes of Wrath

Cold Day In Hell

"Actual question given for a mid-term chemistry exam at the University of Washington:"

Is Hell exothermic (radiates heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)? Support your answer with a proof.

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas
cools when it expands and heats up when it is compressed) or some variant.

One student, however, wrote the following:

First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So, we need to know the rate that souls are moving into Hell and the rate they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving.

As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different
religions that exist in the world today. Some of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there are more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all people and all souls go to Hell.

With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially.

Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in
Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand as souls are added.

This gives two possibilities:

(1) If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until
all Hell breaks loose.

(2) Of course, if Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of
souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell
freezes over.

So which is it? If we accept the postulate given to me by Ms. Therese Banyan during my Freshman year, 'It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you', and take into account the fact that I still have not succeeded in having sexual relations with her, then (2) cannot be true, and so Hell is exothermic.

"That student got the only A in his term..."

What an awesome Day

For being a Tuesday it has been pretty great.The Sun is shining for the second day in a row and i am wearing my new perfect pair of black pants for H & M. AND to top all that my mommy made me pizza for lunch and that was just rad.

I got my colored pencil set on ebay -was way more nerve racking an experience than i thought it would be. I have learned that this delayed gratification isnt really my thing. I see, I want, I buy -why mess with that???
For example I saw this shirt and see no reason not to buy it right now

Skulls, hearts, flames 3x the awesomeness of any one design on its own. From Cut + Paste

Something else that i just couldnt resist once i saw this on another blog

So i made one for ME. Not that me starting another class is that big of a deal but a sea turtle couldnt hurt. (A little creeped out that this site is also done for ovulation and baby arrivals but whatevs) crap there is writing around my lil turtle but it is in black so click on it to see the whole pic.
Have plans to have dinner and chocolate fondue with KT during a new episode of Gilmore Girls. What a Rockin' way to end the day.


Lent is sooo over

after so long without a shopping spree i totally made up for it with a trip to union square with Regina. I ended up with black pants, black T from H & M, pair of discounted buffalo jeans from Loehman's and got my free pair of underwears at Victorias Secret. What deals there were to be had but all this is nothing compared to the rock bottom prices on domestic bottled beer at Blondie's pizza. Regina had a hard time restraining herself on this one. ;) I could tell she felt no remorse getting drunk in the basement of a pizza parlor while gangs of highschoolers and children ran rampant.
My bargain hunting is still on-going. I am currently desperately nervously watching a 120 set of colored pencils on eBay. I MUST HAVE THEM!!!!
Speaking of discounted fashion -Just discovered this SITE which takes celebrity outfits and copies them on a budget. and for all who could give a shit about cute clothes -Not really safe for work but HILARIOUS celebrity satire -Magikpath
and for all those who dont give a shit about clothes or celebrities -i have nothing for you go read another blog today ;) hee i keeding you can read this inspiring story of a canuck trading up from a paper clip trying to make his way to a house HERE
(he was on some morning show for about 2 secs -could tell the 45+ age group of hosts wanted nothing to do with this upstart punk)

i visited post secret for the first time in a while and feel compelled to share a secret with you all-i totally watched drumline last night on tbs. man what a weight off that is. Now i am free to work on all the fat i gained from gorging on ham this easter. couldnt not eat it-wouldnt want to make the jesus cry now would I?


nothing to wear

“Fashion is all about eventually becoming naked” -annonymous

terribly terribly behind on my laundry-was quite a treasure hunt trying to find something to wear today. apparently i have gotten incredibly clumsy lately -coffee stains everywhere! not being able to shop for lent has really hurt my closet since i am soo tired of the winter/rainy season drabness. Luckily i will be shopping in SF tomorrow with Reg. cant wait to see how many more black t-shirts i come home with. ;)


This is ALL my mother's fault

I found a link for this site for FREE STUFF and i just couldnt resist checking it out. LINK

Basically anything you can get at a drug store has a offer for a sample, coupon on this site. There are also hilarious freebies that some marketing genius is offering to plug some earthday or contest not to mention lots of religous how to find god manuals, tapes. The stuff you dont want is definitely more hilarious than what you do. Happy hunting.
Here are some that i just couldnt resist.
Goody Hair ties (i will never forget being in spain with my sister and only having ONE functioning hair tie between the two of us-never again!)
Dentyne Gum (dude its free -who turns down free gum???)
Post-it Notes (Super Sticky = Super Great)
Benjamin Moore Color Sample (I am already schemeing on how many of these i can get)

This one is for Matt

If i remember i will let you all know in 4-6 weeks what stuff actually came through. ;)


Shameless want

I absolutely do not deserve any of the following items but my heart has no self control sometimes.

Well obviously i deserve this file tote because i can rock the matching headband-a-go-go!

True i have never met a mermaid but i imagine these would be her earrings of chooice and one can never fault the stylish eye of the mermaid.

Um do i really need to explain my lust for this shirt??? DO you not see the awesome stencil on the back?? the back of an otherwise prosh french cuff blouse. ohhh i feel faint with greed right now.

I. Want. This. Right. Now. Buy. It. For. Me.

Many thanks to Trunkt, Yank clothing and wishing fish for turning me into a materialistic whore. Kidding we all know i was already one.

More stuff to waste some time on:
The Heath Ledger -all the news thats shit to print!
Dictionary of All-consonant words
Bush vs Tic Tacs
10 worst album covers EVER

Evil? Me?


Tough decision

The hard issues i had to handle today:

Hair up or hair down? def up since it is plastered to head at odd angles having gone to sleep while it was wet

Make-up or natural? ummm horrifically natural today.

Quick in the five seconds before coworker opens office door should i hide the crossword puzzle i am working on??? fuck it its friday let her see.

Hmmm Kit kat or Reese's peanut butter cups. . . and both isnt an option since i only have 85 cents. decision needs more consideration

Read the rest of tuckermax.com or check work emails? nice when one can arrive at a solid decision without even finishing the question. tuckermax it is.

sit and stare and wall or sit and stare at cd spinning in player? BOTH!

yeah today is just one big yawn.

random stuff i have accumulated on bookmark page:

soo kinda wish i had a lame boyfriend at the moment so i could send him HERE

shirt from engrish.com reads "what kind of world is this? it's kind of crap. "

ooh and since i dont want to leave you in suspense all weekend. kit kat totally time for a kit kat.


Nick at Night Nostalgia

One of the shows that had my entire family on the couch was the Batman tv series. Just had to throw some facts, quotes and pics on here to show my appreciation for this awesomely wholesome show. By no means pretty-but i think my efforts reflect the low-budget campiness that was this show. Enjoy

Batman was a Boy Scout

Batman: Only The Riddler and his ilk would have such a flagrant disregard for private property! This door will have to be repaired.

Batman: It is the duty of every good citizen of Gotham City to report meeting a man from Mars in a public park.

Batman: Better put 5 cents in the meter.
Robin: No policeman's going to give the Batmobile a ticket.
Batman: This money goes to building better roads. We all must do our part.

Lisa: Would you like to come in for a glass of milk and cookies?
Bruce: I'm afraid it's rather late. Why, it's 10:30!

Gordon: I'm sure they won't find caviar on the menu at Gotham State Prison.
Batman: Probably not, but they will get a well-balanced diet thanks to Warden Crichton's emphasis on proper nutrition.

Robin: Let's go!
Batman: Not you, Robin. They have strict licensing laws in this country. A boy of your age is not allowed in a drinking tavern.

Robin: You can't get away from Batman that easy!
Batman: Easily.
Robin: Easily.
Batman: Good grammar is essential, Robin.
Robin: Thank you.
Batman: You're welcome.
Batman: [about to cross the street] Remember Robin, always look both ways.
Batman: Robin, you haven't fastened your safety bat-belt.
Robin: We're only going a couple of blocks.
Batman: It won't be long until you are old enough to get a driver's license, Robin, and you'll be able to drive the Batmobile and other vehicles. Remember motorist safety.
Robin: Gosh, Batman, when you put it that way..

Robin: Where'd you get a live fish, Batman?
Batman: The true crimefighter always carries everything he needs in his utility belt, Robin.

Robin: That's an impossible shot, Batman.
Batman: That's a negative attitude, Robin.

Batman: That's one trouble with dual identities, Robin. Dual responsibilities.
Batman: Remember the Boy Scouts' motto.
Robin: 'Be prepared'.
Batman: It would do well to keep that in mind at all times.

What's a Riddler without Riddles?
Riddler: What is it that no one wants to have yet no one wants to lose?!
Robin: A lawsuit!
Riddler: Correct, Boy Wonder!

Riddler: Did you hear about Greta Garbo? She dreamed one night she sprinkled 6 boxes of grass seed in her hair, and woke up moaning: "I vant to be a lawn!"

Riddler: Rats, I am a man of a few words, but a man of many Riddles, so riddle me this: what is it that is always coming, but never arrives?! [No one answers] Quickly, quickly!
Fangs: Uh, we ain't tuned in on the Riddle bit, chief!
Mousey: Yeah! We give up! What is it that is always coming, but never arrives?
Riddler: Tomorrow.
Whitey: Tomorrow?
Riddler: Tomorrow. For when it arrives, it is today, and today, my dear rodents, should prove to be most memorable!

Riddler: When is the top of a mountain like a savings account? When it piques [peaks] one's interest!

Riddler: Oh, what's looser than a thread? A fish. Flying ribbons! A woman's tongue!! Possibly Batgirl's!

Riddler: Batgirls wilt just as quickly as other women!

Riddler: Riddle me this: when does a painter use a trigger instead of a brush? When he's a stickup artist!

Batgirl: What's up your sleeve this time?
Riddler: Up my sleeve, Batgirl? Riddle me once: what's most alluring when it's highest or lowest; when it's in the air or in a hole; when it's served you, yet you can't touch it? An enchanting ace!

Riddler: Riddle me this, Batman: what are the chilliest 12 inches in the world?
Batman: Cold feet!
Riddler: Excellent! What suite of cards lays eggs?
Batman: One that's chicken-hearted. Now listen to this, Riddler, sticks and stones may break my bones...
Riddler: Now you listen to me, Batman! My line is plugged into radio station GTZR! That means that all of Gotham City...[giggles]...has heard you called...[giggles]...a coward! [giggles full time]

Batman: Any last riddles, Riddler?
Riddler: Yes....what keeps coming back no matter how many times you throw it away?
Batman: That's easy. A boomerang.
Riddler: Yes. I....am a boomerang....and I'll....be....back....[falls down, unconscious]

Catwoman-what a vixen!

Catwoman: Robin, get the money.
Batman: [entering from behind a curtain] Don't do it Robin! She's got you under the influence of some sort of drug, Robin.
Robin: Who's the character in the ridiculous costume?
Catwoman: [laughs] That's Batman.
Batman: You don't recognize me, Robin? What a dasterdly turn of events this is.

Catwoman: Robin?
Robin: Yeah?
Catwoman: Slay the blue dragon.
Robin: Groovy.
Batman: Oh, no.
Robin: Oh, yes.

Robin-a boy wonder of God FUN FACT: Burt Ward used a total of 352 “holy words” throughout the entire 120 episodes of Batman. (thanks robintheboywonder.com)
Robin: Holy Benedict Arnold---Suzie! Chief cheerleader,

a member of The Joker's criminal gang!

Robin: Holy molars! Am I ever glad I take good care of my teeth!
Batman: True. You owe your life to dental hygiene.

Robin: Holy Metronome! What a fate--punched into player-piano rolls!
Batman: True, Robin, scarcely an end I'd rather anticipate! Life--a cupful of surprises to the last drop!

Robin: "Ghoti" is "fish"?
Batman: See here. English phonetics. GH becomes F, as in "tough" or "laugh". O becomes I as in "women". TI becomes SH as in "ration" or the word "nation".
Robin: Holy semantics, Batman. You never cease to amaze me!
Batman: No time for compliments, Robin. We must thwart some criminals. To the Batmobile!

Joker: [laughing] Have a sneeze on me, Batman!
[Joker administers sneezing powder upon Batman, which has no effect.]
Batman: No use, Joker! I knew you'd employ your sneezing powder, so I took an Anti-Allergy Pill! Instead of a sneeze, I've caught you cold!

Gordon: Batman, you unscrambled that safe's combination in five seconds flat! How did you do it?
Batman: With my Bat-Five-Seconds-Flat-Combination-Unscrambler, Commissioner.

The lesser known villians

Chief Screaming Chicken: My face is so red!

King Tut: [to Nefertiti] How many times must I tell you?! Queens consume nectar and ambrosia, not hot dogs!

King Tut: Let's make tracks!
Batgirl: [suddenly appearing] The only tracks you'll be making are straight to the penitentiary!

[Later, after Shirley knocks Batgirl out....]
King Tut: For the 2nd time, let's make tracks!
[Batman and Robin suddenly appear]
Batman: The only tracks you'll be making are straight to the penitentiary!
King Tut: Some sort of delayed echo in here?

King Tut: Oh, the world is my oyster, and everyone will be bringing me sauce!!
Egghead: Woe is me. My criminal career is now eggstinct!
Batman: Foolish, evil man!
Robin: You're going to go where all the broken eggshells end up: in the garbage!

I dont want to say this show was formulaic or anything so i will let 1966batfan.com do the honors

1) Villain enters town
2) Gordon calls Batman
3) Batman and Robin go to the Commissioner's office
4) The duo go after the criminal
5) They get caught and put in a trap
6) By some incredible means they escape
7) They chase the villain
8) A fight with the bad guys
9) Justice prevails and off to prison the villains go

Need proof?? check out HOLY BAT TRAP

Who knew Batgirl had a theme song?? A damn catchy too!
Batgirl, Batgirl!
Batgirl, Batgirl!
Where do you come from? Where do you go?
What is your scene? Baby, we just gotta know!

Batgirl, Batgirl!
Batgirl, Batgirl!
Are you a chick who fell in from outer space,
Or are you real with a tender warm embrace?
Yeah, whose baby are you?
Batgirl, Batgirl!
Batgirl, Batgirl!
Yeah, whose baby are you?
