plus size pixies… sort of

In between New Girl and The Mindy Project, I saw a commercial for the Old Navy Pixie Pants. You know the one with Amy Pohler as the judge? I love the part when she tells the 150 year old court reporter that she’s driving them to Old Navy. Anyway, I had about 10 minutes before my beloved Mindy Project started and I…

new movie alert!

Remember when I tried to tell you the “abridged” story of how there was a movie starring Tom Hardy in my neighborhood and how I met him? Well, that movie is finally being released! It’s coming out on September 12th(so soon!) and it now has an official trailer. Want to see it? Look no further: I said in my original…

adventures in job hunting

I just  got home from a job interview. I was extremely optimistic about this one because it was almost perfect. Well, to be honest, the “Pro” column was almost equal to the “Con” column so I consider that a win. They were offering a steady salary, full medical and dental (you read that right, FULL. DENTAL.), it was about the…

chicken pox > mosquito bites

The summer between second and third grade I came down with a nasty case of the chicken pox.  And by nasty I mean I had a total of 11 spots that didn’t really itch. This summer I went on a cruise where I realized that mosquitos and other ankle biters don’t travel into the middle of the ocean.  Yessss.  When…

AlfieRuKy Family Vacation 2014

Why is it when you go on vacation for more than a long weekend you come home and feel like you’ve been away forever? I just got back from a 5 day cruise to Bermuda. I went with my parents, 4 of my aunts and uncles, and 2 of my cousins. It was a really nice cruise and Bermuda is…

Getting patriotic

On my first day of kindergarten I cried as if my parents told me they were selling me to the gypsies and that I would never see them again. The rest of the week wasn’t much different. Sometime during that week however, my teacher started to get the class into a routine. Go to your cubbies, hang up your coat,…

#mancrushmonday: world cup edition

It’s World Cup time again! That sentence makes me seem more excited than I really am. Actually, I am pretty excited because that means there’s a whole new crop of athletes to gawk at when they’re running across my television screen. As an American, I don’t  truly appreciate the game of soccer football. As a woman, however, I can totally…

A Tieks Critique

I have horrible feet. They’re super wide, really flat and they stick out. My ankles, knees and shins only add to the problem. They hurt constantly (not chronically though, thank goodness), I can’t walk for more than 10 minutes without them hurting, and they have a hate/hate relationship with shoes. No matter how many glowing recommendations I get for flats,…

the ONE time…

I never bring work from work home to my home. There’s two reasons for that. One- my co-workers always yell at me when I try to, and two- I’m an hourly employee. There is absolutely no reason for me to be so stressed that something won’t get done that I need to bring it home. However, being the kind of…
