i wonder if i’ll get a badge for this.

Yesterday at work, I got a phone call from Margie Adams. Margie is 80 years old and lives in a suburb of Chicago. Her husband is 85 and blind. She’s got no daughters, just a few grandsons. She called looking for Cushion Grip, which is a high powered denture cream. Unfortunately, it has been discontinued and we have long since…

lashing out

Orange juice & champagne Me & Harry Styles Kim & naked mirror selfies Some things are just better together. A few weeks ago I came home from work and found a package waiting for me. Due to a recent online shopping spree, my roommates weren’t entirely convinced that I had no idea where this box came from. Anyway, when I checked…

ICYMI: that time I met Tom Hardy: #throwbackthursday

I’ve had a bit of a #hardyhangover since watching Dunkirk. I mean, that (pretty much) second to last scene on the beach, in the turtleneck – it just does something to a girl. Turns out Mr. Hardy and myself have a bit of history. I wrote this post 4 years ago, to celebrate the year anniversary of meeting Pillow Lips.…

jawlines over storylines

I’ve been really catching up on my movie watching lately. Today’s much-delayed movie conversation is going to be about Dunkirk. My feelings were very love/hate. Loved: HARRY STYLES. Tom Hardy the cinematography the chiseled cheeks and strong jawlines Hated: everything else hate is a strong word. thoroughly disliked is more like it. I only watch war movies for the men…

I’d be v. surprised if I’m not the last person on earth to see this movie. did anyone else tear up during the first big fight scene between the women and the Germans? just me? cool. the whole girl power/girl boss (i…

thursday thoughts: they’re all over the place.

It’s Thursday and I have thoughts. DEMI LOVATO the fact that I don’t look or sound remotely like her is rude, annoying and frankly, a little insulting. she’s just so pretty, her voice is amazing, she’s dated Wilmer Valderrama AND a Jonas brother (not the one I would pick, but either way). I would take a week of being Demi’s doppelganger.…

loving lately

I was working on a different post for today but it was kind of whiny and blah so I scrapped it and am throwing together a Friday Favorites/Five/ Fwhatever the kids are calling them these days. I recently got the unexpected but fantastic news that Supermarket Sweep 2000 is now on Amazon Prime. Be still my nostalgic heart. If there’s…

a new look

So, I did a thing. (the blog reno, just so we’re clear) New theme, new colors, new vibe (sort of). I mean, I’m still going to bitch about online dating, gush over Harry Styles, discuss all things television, you know, the usual, so no need to worry. I played with the idea of totally changing the name of this space…

single gal speaks: don’t PMS & Bumble

I’ve been trying to write this for about two weeks now but I don’t know what to really say. Unlike my last post, where I didn’t know how to start it because I was so excited I just wanted to word vomit all over the screen, this one is a lot more personal. Ok, I’m being dramatic. It’s about online…

masters of lash

I’ve tried for a week to write this post but I’ve had a very hard time figuring out how to start it. I’ve been waiting for the stroke a genius to hit me, but quite frankly, I’m too excited to tell you guys about this so I’m just going to skip the cutesy intro and jump right in. Before Christmas,…
