Saturday afternoon boredom

I stole this from This list is the 100 things that Very Good Taste thinks everyone should eat at least once in their life.

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment at linking to your results.

For such an ugly suit, it actually photographed nicely.

I’m honestly really mad that my delegates didn’t get to vote. Acclamation, my ass. WTF is that all about? Regardless of the outcome, i would really have liked for my vote to count.

I love her, and you know what? Maybe I did it more for her than for what she believes in. I’m bitter.

And I’m off to watch Obama’s speech while crying into a pint of Ben and Jerry’s.

Why is fall fashion always the best? I absolutely hate that I’m on a budget right now. I would so much rather have new clothes than a second car (unfortunately the second car was required for work)…

The gods must have been reading my old post complaining about shave cream leaving rust in my tub. A few weeks ago, another blog did a review of a cheap (around $5) shave cream that some in a plastic shampoo-like bottle. Well, she didn’t like it very much and the company decided to give some samples out to her blog readers to try it out for themselves.

I got a sample, I have to say that I honestly like it quite a bit. the cream is nice and thick- more like a lotion. The scent is nice- not overly sweet (I got vanilla and I usually hate things that are food scented). And….no rust stains!! Awesome. Its not a bad cream either, I get a nice close shave and my legs feel all nice and smooth after.

So, get thee to thy local Target and pick up some of this stuff. You’re bathtub will thank you.

*I do feel like I should disclose that the other blogger said that it stung her legs. I did not have this problem, not did any of the other people that commented on her blog. I also do not have sensitive skin.

Summer Shoes

August 2, 2008

While you’re at Target buying shaving cream, you should also pick up a pair of these shoes:

They look better in person. They have quickly become my summer shoe staple- I wear them probably 4 times a week. For such a high heel, they’re surprisingly comfortable and they go with a lot since they’re neutral. But the best part is that I CONSTANTLY get compliments on them. From people at work that have seen them before (seriously, how many times are you going to compliment the same freaking pair of shoes?) to random people on the street telling me that they love them (this happens fairly often too). On second thought, if you don’t like attention don’t buy them.

Sorry, but Courtney totally deserved to be sent home. What the hell? She’s been in the bottom like every week! Chelsie, I’m going to miss you and those ridiculous legs that make me feel like I look and move like an elephant.
