I just stumbled across a copy of Entertainment Weekly with Peeta and Gale on the cover. Can I say YUM? And now I’ve spent the last 10 minutes giggling over fabulous one-liners about wanting to bang a baker’s son.
we both have Masters degrees
“so….I got sorted last night…” “EEEEEEEEEE” “I’m going to kill myself. I literally lay face down on the floor for an hour afterward… I’m in Hufflepuff”
how do I still not have a f-ing welcome email? →

Packing is not my forte
I packed 4 pashminas and 1 cashmere shawl for 3 days in 70-80 degree weather. Interesting choices, me.
Apparently one just appeared? hit? touched down? in Pennsville, NJ. A super good friend’s future in-laws live there. Hopefully not much damage! This shit is getting real.
can we drink scotch with these two? →
thanks, Mom, for grabbing me a Harry Potter bandaid for my finger this morning as I was scrambling to get out the door and go to work for the first time this week. it really compliments the bar-appropriate outfit from last night that I threw on this morning because I couldn’t be asked to think about clothes. luckily, my copious amount of cleavage won’t cause any of the middle-aged,...
Beautiful breezes; hot, gooey brownies; Yeunglings; and Julie & Julia on Lifetime. This has gotta be the good life.
alywoowho: thecoastisclear has lost power. A tree fell down on her street. Her family is calling the power company. She is fine but felt tumblr should be updated. Don’t worry-her brownies had finished baking. quick draw McGraw wins this tumblr-off. this time.
that's all she wrote
well, a tree fell down, effectively ending this girl’s marathon of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding and her continuous stream of storm updates. I hope several bottles of champagne made it out of the fridge first!
Channel 7 (ABC)
thecoastisclear: Is literally hanging a camera out a car window and driving around lower Manhattan. Least effective storm coverage ever. I highly recommend the Weather Channel. They’ve kept me riveted since 2 and they seem to only hire VERY attractive people…and Al Roker.
Fuzzy Logic: Updates from the Jersey Shore →
alywoowho: All, or almost all, beach towns have been evacuated. Stores are boarding up their windows on beach towns as well as inland. We tied down or brought inside all outdoor furniture at both houses. Turns out my mom has more than ten wind chimes in her backyard. Took the kitty and my dark and skormys… would like to initiate a hurricane-watch 2011 sustenance swap program....
as 1 of 4 cars traveling South on Route 18 this AM
I realized that there might have been a signifiant lack of foresight in our planning: pre-storm: head inland for boozefest day of storm: head to the shore with reduced booze supply perhaps later I shall venture to one of the marinas on the river…just for a peeksy. Christie would not be pleased.

gotta catch ‘em all…
There goes lunch
90% sure I just saw a cockroach crawling along the floor of Chipotle as I was eating my burrito.
Dear other candidate, I will OWN you. Even though it’s 85 degrees outside, you should still wear some sort of blazer to an interview. I hear prospective employers favor eau de perspiration.
Job Hunting is Oodles of Fun
Seven interviews today. For ONE job. Thoughts: 1. That’s incredibly excessive. 2. 7 is the magical HP number. That clearly bodes well for me.
Bookshops avoid major damage in London rioting →
bookshelfporn: What does that tell you about the looters? looters=anti-materialism, pro-knowledge (also, they just love the smell of new books)
I may be overreacting, BUT
when the organizer for this book I’m contributing to goes on and on about sending the entire project to the publisher this week, I do get a bit nervous when he hasn’t gotten back to me with edits on my latest draft. I mean, he’s had it for a week now and had indicated it would be a quick turnaround! only possible reasons: 1. the slightly unfinished, error-ridden draft that I...
Does this make me a good friend or just plain...
I just registered Alice for Pottermore because she didn’t answer her phone in a timely fashion.
katiecoyle: Well, I’ve successfully registered for Pottermore, which means I am just one step closer to my inevitable and heart-wrenching Sorting into Hufflepuff. At least you’ll be in good company. Also, am currently judging myself and how I almost killed several pedestrians in order to complete my registration. Thank God for iPhones!

does this mean I need to change my style?
for the last two days, the crazy event manager has been copying my half up/half down hairstyle. the thing is, I rock this look. big time. she, however, looks ridiculous and it makes me want to laugh everytime she comes to give me some bizarre task to do (like send the photos on her blackberry to her email account, cause she can’t figure that one out on her own). point is, until she gives up...
I’ve watched Doctor Who a whopping four times. I have seen this episode thrice. Perhaps this is why I find myself resisting it’s draw?
For Alice and Katie →
apparently you two aren’t the only ones simultaneously trying to cope with Bride Wars Red Alerts and Harry Potter mania. please see number 1.
