women’s history month WCW

Why is it that on days I decide to write a post, the day just flies by? Seriously, I feel like I was just sitting down to watch Mob Wives and now it’s after 10pm. Anyway, on to the point of this post, March is Women’s History Month and I’m going to try to use it to the best of my (blogging) advantage. Each Wednesday this month there will be a WCW post here so be on the lookout! This one is going up late, obviously, but the others should be more timely. Meaning I’m going to schedule them. (#spoileralert)

So without further ado…


Can Meryl Streep do any wrong? Nope. Even in bad movies, she’s good (*cough* Death Becomes Her *cough*). I call her Mama Meryl because if I could chose anyone in the world to be my mom, other than my real mom, it would be her. My mom is aware of this and will help me pack my bags if Meryl comes a- knocking.

She’s just… effortless. And amazing. And so talented it’s ridiculous.

I’ve talked about my love for Melissa McCarthy before. Nothing’s changed. If you haven’t seen “Saint Vincent” go to your nearest RedBox, Target, DVD bootlegger (hey, whatever works) get it and thank me later. She is excellent in it.

She seems fun to be around. I love when she goes on talk shows, she tucks her leg underneath her when she sits. get comfortable, girl. That’s how I like to sit too but I’m constantly getting yelled at because it messes up the couch cushions. if melissa can do it, so can i.

And finally for today…

Kate DiCapri… oh wait.

Kate Winslet. The British Meryl Streep. (too far?) The only way I could like her more is if she and Leo stopped kidding themselves and just got married already. I know she’s married and he’s looking for me  playing his role as the New George Clooney, but they love each other; it’s so obvious and seems so right. On second thought, her husband’s last name is Rocknroll, which is pretty badass, so she’s winning either way. I hope that’s his real last name and I’m not making myself look like a total fool.

Who is your WCW this week?

Let’s discuss!



I’ve signed on to check my stats maybe 3 times yesterday and they held steady at zero for 90% of the day. ouch. My solution was to post something but I was drawing a huge blank so I went to the ever reliable (for me anyway) Kludgy Mom Idea Bank and went through her hundreds of prompts and found this one:

If you had to watch one movie or television show, or listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be….and why?

I think we all know what my answer would be to that one. But only if they had constant new episodes.

the mindy project

I mean… you had to see that one coming. However, no matter how much I love a show, song or movie there’s sometimes IS too much of a good thing. So to combat this, I decided that I would probably need my own television station so that there’s some variety. Probably. ha! Who am I kidding? My dream is to have my own station. Network? Empire? Eh, too far.

Running a television network is not one of my many talents, so please, if you do have experience in television excuse any non-nonsensical things that may grace this page. That being said, I’d call my network (I’ve upgraded to network because I’ve got big plans) TeenieTV, since MTV is already taken. I’d love for the channel number to be 714, but I think that’s taken as well. Hopefully the cable providers are flexible when I go in to whine negotiate.

My channel would be an eclectic mix of old and new. I love a good 90’s sitcom so many of those would be on rotation. The Golden Girls, The Golden Palace, Designing Women, ALF, any and all of the TGIF lineup, etc. Then I would have Primetime shows like The Mindy Project, The Middle, Once Upon a Time, Jane the Virgin, Chasing Life, Blue Bloods, all the shows that frequent my DVR. I also love a good 90’s dramedy so Sisters, Providence, ER, etc would also have a spot. Finally, shows that I loved but were got cancelled would have a place too. Come on over Gossip Girl (which I know technically wasn’t cancelled but the last two-ish seasons sucked so I need some more seasons to rectify this situation),Emily Owens, MD, and Red Band Society. I’d throw some movies on there too. Mostly rom-coms and Disney. Ugh. there aren’t enough hours in a day or days in a week.

umm.. apparently

For the kids, I would have TeenieToons which would be all NickToons and Disney shows from, you guessed it, the 90’s. Was there a better time for children’s programming? I DON’T THINK SO.


I’d have my own reality show called RealaTEE (like reality. sometimes i even impress myself). My life is probably not exciting enough for a show but my network, my rules. Also, I need a place to put all of my favorite reality shows that have been cancelled. Growing Up Gotti, Rich Girls, Sorority Life, My Super Sweet 16, Scrappers, Brooklyn 11223. And if any of these shows wanted to come back, they would have a home on the RealaTEE channel. this is embarrassing.

ariel face palm

Since I upgraded to a network and also love YouTube, I would add TeenieTube to the channel listing. This would be where I would offer my favorite Youtubers their own shows. Basically, professionally filmed and edited vlogs and how-to videos. I would ask The Schuermans, Benji and Judy, Anna and Jonathan, Nicola Foti, Louise, Marie, Lori, Joseph Birdsong, Miranda Sings among others to have a show on my network. i can’t believe i’m admitting to how long i sit in front of some sort of screen. #judgementfreezone.

Finally, I’d add TeenieTunes. It would be like an MTV Hits kind of station except it would play whatever is on my Spotify playlist. And I’m sure you could guess what’s on there. Death Metal – tons of it.

Now that I’ve embarrassed myself with the amount of TV I watch I guess I could end it here.

What show could you watch endlessly? Would you watch TeenieTV? I’m thinking it’s a pretty niche market. What shows would you put on your TV station?

Let’s discuss!


academy awards 2015 fashion favorites! and my 100th post!

I’m going to let the pictures speak for themselves, but I feel like I have to say that this year was an excellent year for Oscar fashions. In no particular order (except Jennifer Lopez wins first prize, in my book) here are my favorite fashions from the 2015 Oscars.

I actually liked her red carpet dress too. Those gloves were such a shame.

oscar status




Had to add my girl, Mindy Kaling. She’s at the Vanity Fair Oscar party so it totally counts.

Also, I just realized that this is my 100th post! I am accepting any and all congratulatory gifts and monetary donations. As I will for all of my blogging/life achievements. Nice comments work as well.

Who were your Oscar fashion favorites? Who do you think fashion flopped?

Let’s discuss!


brushes with celebrity and birthday celebrations

Ughhhh. I started a post and then got so carried away with the Oscars that I closed the tab – like a big idiot.

Anyway, as I was saying, it’s been ridiculously cold here for, like, ever. So cold that my will to live do anything has seemingly flown right out the window. Today though, the temperature has generously gone up to 40-ish degrees and I didn’t know what to do with myself. I drove with my car window cracked open! I went outside without a jacket! It was surreal and amazing. Tomorrow, the temperature plummets again. sigh.

Last night, we (my cousins and I) went out for my cousin Desiree’s birthday. She picked a place in the Village that gets pretty packed, pretty quickly. So instead of fighting with the crowds for some food, I went to find food with some of my cousins and their significant others. We trudged through the snow until we found the Olive Tree Cafe. We went in and had to wait a little while but it sure as hell beat walking around in the snow and slush. So, we’re standing in the small vestibule, waiting for a table and a guy passes us. I look up and have a mini freak out.

Me: Jill! Do you know who that was?

Jill: No. Who?

Me: Ok, you know Carly from GirlCode?

Jill: Yea

Me: Her boyfriend!

Jill: What’s his name?

Me: I don’t know, but he’s on SNL!

His name is Pete Davidson, by the way.

So now I’m looking for Carly or any other famous faces. I mean, I was in the Village. you just never know. Nothing. We sit down and we order and all of a sudden someone passes my table and I look up to see Leslie Jones, again from SNL, walking towards the back of the cafe.

Me: Guys! I just saw someone else from SNL.

Jill, Nikki and Nestor: Who?

Me: I don’t know her name, but I know she’s on SNL. She’s one of the newer cast members.

Well, that was anti-climatic.

It was then that I realized that the restaurant was located upstairs from the Comedy Cellar. well, that explains it. I didn’t get any pictures or autographs so if Pete becomes the next Jimmy Fallon or if Leslie becomes the next Maya Rudolph, so help me God. I mean, good for them; i’ll just be kicking myself for the rest of my life.

When we finished, we started the journey back to the bar where the rest of the party was. We got back just in time to officially (as in, it was midnight) wish Desiree a happy birthday. We had a few more drinks, danced to some NSYNC (the DJ was actually really good) and finally left for the night. The freezing rain had started by then so the block and a half walk to the train station was a real pleasure, as you can imagine.

desi collage
pretty much sums it up.

I wound up sleeping over at Jill’s or else I’d probably still be driving home. Now, I’m watching (and trying but failing to live-tweet) the Oscars. I already have a list of my favorite looks (*cough* JLO *cough*) so look for that tomorrow(?).

How was your weekend? Have you had enough of winter yet? Who were your favorite Oscar looks?

Let’s discuss!


Sometimes the best things in life aren’t free

I was on Twitter earlier, trying to get a feel for it. I still don’t really like it and even though it seems to be the ticket for blog exposure, I don’t know if I could bring myself to use it for more than the occasional celebrity stalking session or quick retweet here and there.

Anyway, while I was floating around the Twittersphere, I made my way over to Mindy Kaling’s feed. I really wanted to see if she had anything to say about either last night’s episode (which turned out to be not as heart tuggy as I thought, but still an excellent episode.) or had any insight on next week’s (i’m obsessed, ok? i admit it.). There was none of that but, there was this:



Things like this exist? I mean, of course I know you can have most things personalized. But just read that again – “a cursive glitter clutch with my name on it”. It combines many of my favorite things. Glitter, my name, cursive writing, and it’s a purse. SOLD.

I went straight to the Edie Parker site to check it out. Maybe it’s not what what I’m expecting it to be. Maybe it will be tacky looking. They might not even be able to fit my name on there, it is a clutch, after all.



It’s perfect! A little small, but really I’d probably use it once and then put in on a shelf to gawk at it every day, anyway. And it’s only $179.50! A little pricey but I think… wait. Is that a comma between the 1 and the 7? Yep. that is most definitely a comma. I should know because I use them all the time. So, this gem is 17 almost 18 hundred dollars? Well, that’s not in the budget. Is there a coupon code?

giphy (2)

Oh well. My dreams of being Mindy’s BFF/ cool accessory twin will just have to hop in the backseat. Unless someone out there is feeling generous! All you need is my PayPal email address, right?

What is on your “hopefully, someday” wish list? Did you watch Tuesday’s episode?

Let’s discuss!


fashion hits- grammys 2015

The Grammys were on last night and for some reason I haven’t seen any posts on the night’s fashions. Never fear! That’s what I’m here for. I don’t know if this will be a best/worst kind of thing, but as usual, since almost no forethought went into this post, I’m just going to throw it all out there and see where it lands. (and by “no forethought” i mean i just want to look at pretty dresses and handsome men in tuxedos, not rank them in order of any kind of greatness.)

I’m not a fan of the color black in clothing. Sure, every woman needs her go – to LBD and there are some pieces that, if you’re going to make an investment, should be black or at least extremely neutral so that you get your money’s worth. In general though, I prefer color. There’s just too many of them not to take advantage. Last night, I noticed a nice handful of black dresses and I have to say, I wasn’t disappointed.

I’ve mentioned here before that I’m not a big Beyonce fan. However, when she hits it, she hits it. amirite?

off topic – i’d love to look through their photo albums, no?

I’m glad that Nicki Minaj has finally dropped the rainbow hair and the crazy outfits because underneath it all, I think she’s really attractive. I never thought I’d be complimenting her outfit but we’re both growing up, I guess.

Then we move inside and the show starts. Jessie J comes out with Tom Jones and it’s all kinds of jaw dropping. My aunt and uncle had come over for dinner and stayed to watch some of the show.

All she has on is her underwear! – my uncle screamed

If I had her body, I’d throw that on to go grocery shopping – my aunt countered

God bless her – my mother mumbled

Honestly, I’m going to have to go with my mom and my aunt on this one. If I had her body, I’d probably forget to put that overlay on before I ran out to my local grocery store. God Bless.

jessie-j-grammys-2015-463021246-510x746 (1)

Also, can we please talk about Tom Jones’ jacket? I’m in love. What are my chances of getting my future husband, whoever he may be, to wear that bad boy at our wedding? I’m going to try.

Lady Gaga is another person who has cleaned her fashion act up – thank goodness. I was getting a little tired of the meat dresses and the hatching out of an egg and the polar bear’s ass around her head. She’s been working with Tony Bennett for a while now and it only did good things for her, in my opinion.

She’s another one that if I had her body, I’d throw one of those dresses on to run errands.

I’m glad that Taylor Swift wore color. A really pretty one too. At first I was a little eh over her outfit, but then I saw her shoes and I was all for it. Also, I was happy this dress “forbid” her from wearing a red lip. It’s a nice change.


Katy Perry might not have worn color, per-say, but her hair was purple so that counts. I loved her dress because it sparkled. (spoiler alert: i love anything that sparkles)


Men’s fashion is so hard to comment on because, really, they all look the same after a while. But there are some exceptions. John Mayer, for example. I don’t know where he crawled out from but he looks good. Ed Sheeran looks like Ed Sheeran. A little unkempt yet still put together. A little bad ass (those tattoos!) with a baby’s face.

Can we talk about Nick Jonas for a minute? First of all, how old his he? I thought he was 21 but he doesn’t look 21, does he? Is this what 21 year olds look like these days? Woof. To be honest, his suit would not be my first choice. But then again, he could show up in just his Calvins and I don’t think anyone would mind.

ahem, well.
ahem, well.

See what I mean?

Last but not least, and believe me I wasn’t going to even mention her, but I am really loving Kim Kardashian‘s haircut. I would say “new haircut” but honestly, I have no idea if it’s new. I can’t keep up. (ba dum dum) Her dress? eh. I love that it’s beaded and sparkly but it looks like a robe. She looks unfinished finished. Like, there’s nothing to add but she doesn’t seem quite done. Is it me?


So how did I do? What are your thoughts on last night’s fashions? The performances? The awards in general? Leave me a comment and let’s discuss! (<- I think I found a way to sign off!)


friday five – on a saturday

I was sitting at lunch today mentally making a list of things to write about for my Friday Five. It was only after I made the list that I realized that today was Friday. It was a looong week, my friends. So now it’s 11:29 Friday night and I’m just starting to write my Friday Five post. procrastination at its finest.

1. It wouldn’t be a post from me if I didn’t mention Mindy so here we go. Tuesday’s episode – whoa, Mindy. If you haven’t watched it yet, go and do that now because I’m spoiling it in 3…2…1… OK. It was Peter’s last episode which makes me kind of upset because I started to really like him. He follows Lauren to Texas after a grand gesture in the airport. It was nice. I’m not Lauren’s biggest fan so the whole time I was all #byefelicia. But that’s just scratching the surface. Dr. Gurgler offered Mindy and Danny a spot in the fertility practice that he is opening in California. So, Mindy goes back to NY to talk to Danny about it but before she could get it out, he takes her to the brownstone he bought THEM in Harlem. swoon. He pulls up to the place and he says “Min, I bought this for us” or something. I was too busy swooning to pay close attention. Even when I watched it on Hulu the next day.

giphy (3)

Anyway, the show goes on and at Peter’s going away party, Gurgler comes in and spills the news. Danny goes all Staten Island and storms out.

youse guys.. i can't.
youse two.. i can’t.

He has a moment with Peter at the brownstone and finally goes back to Mindy’s, climbs into bed with her, and is just so adorable I couldn’t even stand it.

Apparently, Mindy goes back to California the next morning because she is back in her dorm room when Peter calls from his cab to the airport. They agree that they’re best friends (which I thought was cute but Tumblr was up in arms over this). Peter reminds her that he’s also her doctor and that her test results came back. Do you see where I’m going with this? YOU GUYS, MINDY IS PREGNANT! I know this was probably the longest entry for an item on a Friday Five list and I probably should have given it it’s own recap post, but I didn’t so you’ll have to just deal. Did you watch? Let’s discuss.  Tuesday cannot come fast enough.

Ok, now that I’ve re-hashed the whole episode, found some more spoilers (I have to stay off Tumblr) and have sort of gotten my heart off the floor and back into my chest, let’s continue.

2. Silent Auction is over! hallelujah! Remember how I said I was running lead? Yea. Somewhere around Wednesday I found out that I was not, in fact, running the show. After that I decided that I wasn’t going to let this whole thing stress me out and my life immediately became easier. It’s not that I decided to drop the ball, but when I found out that someone else was in charge and there was nothing I could do about it, I climbed into the backseat and went along for the ride. The event went well and the projected totals seemed to be right on target. As for my donated photos, eh. I donated four and only two were sold. The Imagine/Strawberry Fields one and the one from Bow Bridge were the winners and both went for the opening bid of $25. A bit of a letdown considering they all went for more last year, but you win some, you lose some. We’re having a sale on the unbid items sometime next week so hopefully they get sold there. If not, I’m taking them home.

3. I’m still in love with Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran, but Sam Smith’s new song is creeping up to second place. I’ll put the video here. Get out your tissues.

4. Did everyone see the Saved by the Bell reunion on Jimmy Fallon? First of all, I’m going to need whatever water is running through the pipes at Bayside High School because none of them have aged. Except Mr. Belding. I honestly thought he was sick for a minute. As far as I know he’s not. (I think I get that from my mom. Whenever someone’s look changes drastically for the worse, my mother always assumes they’re sick.) Anyway, everyone else looks fantastic. Noticeably absent were Screech and Lisa. They didn’t mention them in the skit but I could only assume that they were taking rides on the hot mess express. (Did you see the Lifetime SBTB movie Dustin Diamond made? It was good, but it’s time to box up those feelings and move on. The fact that he just got arrested probably didn’t help either. And poor Lark Voorhies. I hope her lawyer is better than her plastic surgeon because I would sue the botox out of him/her. I’m not trying to be mean- Google her.) Putting all of that aside, lace up your Keds and take a walk down memory lane.

5. I normally don’t do outfit posts or even mention my outfits but I am in love what I wore on Thursday for the auction. Please excuse my awkward bathroom mirror selfies. I was trying to be quick and to be honest, I don’t know how to take a mirror selfie. because i’m lame.

These are worse than I thought. Anyway, my pants are navy and I’ve had them forever. My top is from Dressbarn. It’s a cream with gold polka dot tank top. I don’t usually ever tuck my shirt into my pants but this top is pretty long and since I’m short I thought the long top with the long cardigan made me look disheveled. The cardigan is from Forever 21+. It is HOT pink and I’m in love. The night before I wrapped my hair in a headband for some heatless curling action. It’s usually pretty hit or miss because my hair gets pretty temperamental, but I think this time it got over itself and did what it was supposed to.

Woof. This was way longer than I expected. How was your week? Any thoughts on Mindy? Who do you want to see Jimmy Fallon reunite next? (The Fresh Prince? Growing Pains? Family Matters? The possibilities are endless.)

Let’s discuss!


i am fully aware that this is not myspace

Ok. I know my last post was a survey and (surprise!) this post will be a survey. I am fully aware that this is not Myspace. However, I’m stuck at work and missing my beloved Superbowl commercials so I’m feeling a bit deflated, not unlike Tom Brady’s balls. (ba dum dum) tumblr_ml3zjyGk2f1s2kzvmo1_500 i planned for this to go up on Sunday, obviously. unfortunately, life happened. so even though it’s now old news and football season is over, i had to leave that tom brady’s balls line in because i laughed way too hard for far too long about it. moving on…

What are you wearing?
Am I going to get dinner or a drink out of this?

Ever been in love?
Only with my mirror. Except sometimes it’s a jerk.

Ever had a terrible breakup?

How tall are you?
I’m in the neighborhood of 5’2″/ 5’3″

How much do you weigh?
Did this survey just ask me how much I weigh? Rude.

Any tattoos?
Nope. I go through phases of wanting one and then I wind up talking myself out of it.

Any piercings? 
Just my ears. And they’re crooked.

OMG so many. Mindy and Danny, Chuck and Blair, DJ and Steve, Ariel and Eric, Me and Zac Efron.

Favorite show?
I named some of my current favorites here.

Favorite bands?
Backstreet Boys and One Direction are all I need.

Something you miss?
My youth.

Favorite song?
At the moment, Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran. Of all time? there’s too many to name. Proud Mary always get me dancing though. Just like Tina.


How old are you?
27 and a half.

Zodiac sign?

Quality you look for in a partner?
He has to be funny, smart, smells good. I touched on my ideal man here.

Favorite Quote?
I wanted this answer to be a mix of smart and funny, maybe thought provoking, but I can’t think of anything that is just right. The only thing that is coming to mind right now is from my favorite pocket sized crooner, Bruno Mars. “I’m smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy.”

Favorite actor?
Again, so many. I think Meryl Streep is God’s gift to Hollywood. I love Anna Kendrick, Anne Hathaway, Leonardo “Where Is My Oscar” DiCaprio, Tom Hardy. Just too many.

Favorite color?
Anything that sparkles.

Loud music or soft?
Soft. Unless I’m at a concert, and even then I sometimes think, ” Can’t they just turn it down a notch?”

Where do you go when you’re sad?
To the liquor store. Actually, no. I don’t condone drinking your problems away. I don’t usually go anywhere. I kind of just mope around until I feel better. pity parties for the win!

How long does it take you to shower?
I set aside an hour and a half to get ready for work. That’s showering, getting dressed, putting on makeup, the whole nine yards. I’m late probably 4 out of 5 days so the answer is too long.

How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
More than an hour and a half.

Ever been in a physical fight?
Not technically. I was pushed but I didn’t fall so I just walked away.

Turn on?
Sense of humor, being smart without being arrogant.

Turn off?
Talking to me when I obviously don’t want you to, asking me a question and then cutting me off in the middle of my answer, bad teeth.

The reason I made a blog?
I wanted to start something and see it through to the end. Also, I got this idea in my head that somehow, someway someone with the ability to hire would see it and want me to work for them. Nothing yet.

Ugh. Again, too many. I’m afraid of everything.

Last thing that made you cry?
I’m feeling stressed at work (I know we’ve been over this) so even though I haven’t cried yet, I feel it coming.

Last time you said you loved someone?
The last time I spoke to my mom. I always tell her I love you before I leave or hang up.

Meaning behind your blog name?
I wanted something fun and young and chic and that’s what I came up with. I talked about that in my Liebster award acceptance questions.

Last book you read?
“The 12 Daves of Christmas” I got it for either free or really cheap on Amazon for my Kindle. It was really cute.

The book you’re currently reading?
Something Borrowed by Tina Reilly. It’s taking me fooooreverrr to read this book. Part of the reason is that I’m busier than usual and the other part is that I’m having a hard time getting in to it. I picked this one because the author’s name is really Martina and I wanted to show some support to my fellow uniquely named sister.

Last show you watched?
I have Everybody Loves Raymond on right now in the background, but the last show I sat down to watch was Jeopardy. Does that make me boring?

Last person you talked to?
My mom.

The relationship between you and the person you last texted?
She’s one of my oldest friends who happens to live across the street from me. Nicole. it was Nicole.

Favorite food?
Anything not nailed down. ha. no, seriously. I’ll try anything and usually end up liking it.

Place you want to visit?
We’ve definitely been over this. Anywhere and everywhere.

Last place you were?
I just got out of the shower so I guess the bathroom. But like last place I was before heading home? Work, aka Satan’s lair.

Do you have a crush?
Nope. I really, really want one though. Is that odd?

Last time you were insulted?
Oh please. I don’t consider myself one of those people who get offended at everything but I could probably say at least once a day I find myself thinking “Did they seriously just say that to me?”


Favorite flavor of sweet?
Lately I’ve been craving Air Heads all the time but usually it’s chocolate.

What instruments do you play?
I can’t even think of anything sarcastic to say. The radio? The pre/recorder? It’s been a while.

Favorite piece of jewelry?
My grandmother wore a small M necklace all the time. I remember asking her if when she died, would I get that necklace? Before you start yelling how inappropriate that is, keep in mind, I had to be about 3 or 4. 5 the oldest so I really don’t think I understood the concept of death. Anyway, when she passed away my mom gave me the necklace. I added the cross my godmother got for me when I was baptized and I haven’t taken it off since.

Last sport you played?
HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAH. Oh, I laughed from a good place.

Last song you sang?
I was lip-syncing to the Disney station I made on my Pandora earlier. Believe it or not, this helps me get through the day. So, if you’re having a bad day at work (or in general) just hop on to Pandora and make a Disney station!

Favorite chat up/pick up line?
Ok. I seriously had to Google pick up lines. Not because I don’t know what they are but because I’ve never had one used on me. Lame, I know. So here are a few that made me second hand embarrassed for people who use them.

  • Are you a camera? Because every time I look at you, I smile.
  • Are you an orphanage? Cause I wanna give you kids.
  • Did you fart, cause you blew me away. (no freaking way)
  • This isn’t a beer belly, It’s a fuel tank for a love machine. (um.)

Have you ever used it?
No. I could never.

Last time you hung out with anyone?
I went to brunch this past weekend for Lisa’s birthday. It was a good time!

Who should answer these questions next?
Anyone who wants to!

My next post probably won’t be a survey but since I can’t think that far in advance, I’m not making any promises. Anyway, I hope this one answered some burning questions you had about me.


TAG: getting to know me!

Fun fact: I was one of those people who did every Myspace survey ever created. Maybe not. That sounds a bit too ambitious; I’m lazy. But, I did a lot of them and grew to love them. I’ve been looking for a Myspace-esque survey to do and make into a post for a while now. Finally, the social media gods answered my prayers and I was tagged to do one. So, thank you Shauna for thinking of me. Now, let me just sort out my top 8 and we’ll get started.

What’s your nickname?
Mar, Weenie, Mark Ween.

How tall are you?
5’3″ ish.

How old are you?
I am 324 months old. Or 27. What, moms on Facebook could post a monthly photo of their children until they’re like 10 and I can’t make a funny?

Birth place?
Brooklyn, NY – Just like my spirit animal, Notorious BIG

Ancestral home?
Basically Italian and Hungarian. I know there’s more but I’m not sure what.

Favorite color?
I’m really in to emerald green right now but anything that sparkles works for me.

i NEED this in my life.

Favorite verse in the Bible?
I hate to admit this because I loved going to religious instruction but I can’t name any specific Bible verses. I feel like a really bad Catholic. #catholicguilt

Favorite cuisine?
I’ll eat almost anything but my favorites are Italian and American (I guess. basically anything you can get in a good diner)

Favorite artist?
We should all know the answer to this one. Backstreet Boys (movie countdown: 1 day!) and One Direction. I also really like Ed Sheeran, Adele(she’s coming out with a new album this year! hallelujah!) and Taylor Swift.

Strangest talent?
I don’t think I have any strange talents, but I do have many regular talents. Reciting Golden Girl episodes, watching youtube videos, giving the benefit of the doubt, making myself laugh, over thinking things, napping, eating, reading, complaining… the list goes on.

Drink of choice?
I’m obsessed with Diet Coke with lemon and ice. I’ve limited myself to a can a day but I would hook myself up to an IV of that shit if that were an option. I can’t though. I have to start drinking more water. I’m not getting any younger.


Biggest dream?
Just doing what I want without worrying about anything. Traveling, jumping from job to job, shopping sprees. So, I guess my biggest dream would be to have an unlimited bank account and to have my family and friends to enjoy it with.

How do you take your coffee?
Light with cream. Iced.

Currently obsessed with?
Just read the last few posts on here. The Backstreet Boys’ movie, One Direction, The Mindy Project, my current work situation and how to change it, Mob Wives.

Biggest fear?
Everything. Living a whole life and not having anything to show for it, never finding my “soulmate”, never amounting to anything, death. You know, the little things.

Something you never thought you would get to do?
I wish I could say I’ve done really cool things in life but I really haven’t. I have absolutely no idea.

Humanitarian cause?
There are so many. I’m anti-bullying, anti-animal abuse, pro finding a cure for everything, everybody should have a roof over their head, clothes on their back and food in their stomach. I wish I could give to everything.

Skill you would like to learn?
I was just thinking that I wish there was something that I knew how to do without thinking. I’ll learn whatever you want to teach me. Also, I want to be a better photographer (even if that just means learning to be easier on myself) so if anyone has tips/tricks they’re willing to share, I’m here.

Experience you want to have?
I want to fall in love, get married and have children. I also want to travel and experience the world. To be honest, there is a list a mile long of celebrities that I would love to meet. And from a blogging perspective, I would love to see what doors this endeavor opens for me. I’m not in this for fame or loads of money, as nice as that would be, but if I could travel because of my “splashes” or if I could make friends through this piece of the internet, I definitely wouldn’t say no.

Something random about yourself?
In 5th grade we voted once a month for President and Vice President. I was voted in as President one of those months. I’m going to say I was the only girl who held that office, but I’m not entirely sure. So basically, I was the first female President.

I’m not going to tag anyone specifically. Anyone who wants to do this is welcomed to, but if Peaches & Poppycock and Honestly, Libby wanted to kill a few minutes and fill it out, I certainly wouldn’t complain.

If anyone sees any more of these, send them my way!
