Popprincess Babysits...

So I think I need to re-evaluate my life.  The following event happened this past Wednesday evening...

I was babysitting a 5 month old and feeding her a bottle.  As she finished it...I said...

"Awww Avery, your bottle's kicked, isn't it?".

Kicked? I might as well have asked her to go shotgun outside and then play drink the fridge.  fml.

My roommates & I need to relax

It has become quite apparent that my roomates and I need to take it easy.  We need to squash the  Sunday Fundays in the immediate future, because it is clear that we are killing brain cells each and every weekend.

Every single Monday night, without fail, we have the same conversation..

So picture us sitting in our living room, watching Dancing with the Stars.  Obviously, while watching such a quality show some really burning questions come up. 

1) What race is Rick Fox anway?

2) Hey is Rick Fox Dating Eliza Dushku?

3) How old is Jennifer Grey anyways?

and my favorite, that comes up during the Activia commercials

4) Isn't that Sigourney Weaver?

Yeah, I get it why would we ever remember answers to such trivial and obscure questions?  And, if you have deep and powerful thoughts like Beej, Smellin' and I you are racking your braining thinking:

How the heck do you tell the difference between Susan Sarandon, Jamie Lee Curtis and Sigourney Weaver anyway???

I guess why I'm so concerned for our well-being (and what makes us so pathetic) is that a mere 7 days have passed each week we asked each and every one of those questions. And we're pushing week 6 of the show. 

SO perhaps if I write down the answers to these burning questions, my roomates and I can quickly reference my blog instead of hemming and hawing (and eventuallly googling) the answers.

Drumroll please...

1) Rick Fox is Bahamian and Italian Canadian (eh?)

2) Yes he's dating Eliza Dushku, that's why she's in the audience and he kissed her after he danced.  Yes that pretty young girl next her is typically his daughter, and yes it's his daughter with Vanessa Williams (p.s. Rick Fox has still got it).

3) Jennifer Grey is 50, and of course she got a nose job, duhh.

and finally

4) No that is not Sigourney Weaver.  It's Jamie Lee Curtis.

For future reference (and based on my own little mind...):

Sigourney Weaver: Copycat, Dave, Avatar

Susan Sarandon: Stepmom, Dead man walking, Thelma & Louise

Jamie Lee Curtis: Halloween, Freaky Friday, Activia

Why Am I single?

Q: Why am I single?

A: I was almost partying for 24 hours, straight.

Last weekend, BC was playing Virginia Tech.  On Friday, I was well aware of the fact that the game started at high nooon on Saturday, but of course that didn't stop me from going to reggae night at the local watering hole.

At the bar, I realized that I was not with "my people". I weasled my way up to order a drink and two girls from college tagged along so I could order for them.  No prob, typically.,,,

I grab the bartender's attention and turn to the girls, the following interaction occured:

Girl #1: Stoli O and soda
Girl #2: Crowne & Ginger
Me: uhhh I'll have a Stoli O & Soda, a Crowne and Ginger, and a Coors Light draft.

Yeah, because that's just the way I roll.

Regardless this was not the big event, the 24 bender, but just was just the start of it.

Saturday AM
7:15 a.m. - WOS
7:30 a.m. - shower
7:45 a.m. - WTF do I wear??

On that note, WTF do I wear? I had sent all of my summer clothes home with @mocarey earlier in the week.  FML right? It was already around 80 degrees.  I found some random cotton skirt and rummaged in my roommates closet for a nice flowy top (yeah she's a hipster).  All I could find was an orange top.

Oopsies.  Sorry BC...I must have been the kiss of death.

8:30 a.m. - Mr. & Mrs. (Moose & Sticky) pick my sorry ass up to go to the game
8:51 a.m. - Mimosa #1 (which led to 2, 3 and maybe 4) 
10:40 a.m. - Heading to go get tickets @ another tailgate, Moose tells me to finish my beer.  I go to chug it.

Me: When did I start drinking a budweiser???

FFW to after the game

4:30 p.m. outside the porto potties

Kid my age: Excuse me m'am, are you waiting for one of these?
Me (possibly belligerant): M'AM? M'AM??? I'M 24  AND A HALF!!!
see my "i hate 'video'"
5:?? p.m.  I jump on the BC bus to meet Moose at the bar

I arrive in the basement of the bar to a ginormous game of flip cup.  I immediately join Moose's team. At some point after a half hour or so, some dweebo gets the bill and starts hitting up Moose & her friends for $, even though they had their own tab. 

Confrontation immediately ensues.  Moose is arguing, the dweebo goes to walk away and calls her a bitch.

Dweebo: uhh no....

Easily the quote of the year.

While this argument over who paid/should pay for the beer is going on,

Someone is stealing dweebos money out of the bill.. And I figure, if they are going to argue over the beer, I'm going to drink it.

I proceed to play 1 v. 1 flip cup for the next half hour with Moose's classmates.

The cab ride home is hazy and eventually I'm pretty sure I swiped my card and told the cab driver to "put it on my tab".

8:00 p.m. - uknown food is consumed
8:30 p.m. - 11:00 p.m. - NAP
11:00 p.m. - tap tap tap from the roommate

Roommate: Heyyy popprincess? Wanna go out?
Me: uhhhhh yeahhhhhhhhhhh let me go change

Off to the bar we go.  We didn't get into the bar until just after midnight.  The following day Moose had me recap all the drinks I had on "Sunday".  Which includes the following that was imbibed:

"Well, I got a miller lite when we got there, then someone bought me a lemon drop shot, and a bud light, then I got a coors light draft and then that same someone got me a red headed slut and a corona, and I'm pretty sure there was another coors light draft in there.....and this was all in like a matter of 2 hours"

Moose: I don't think you were there for two hours. 

Then, once arriving home for the "after party" which involved eating a ton of chinese food. A little family dinner @ 3:30 AM never hurt anyone.

And to end the night, we analyzed one of our friends love lives see below.

5:00 a.m. - I went to bed

I'm pretty sure I should have just stuck it out until 8:51 a.m. - and then I would have come full circle in 24 hours of partying. 

There's always next time.

New Beat

And you thought Jo Jo (hailing from Foxborough, MA), was never going to come out with another beat after "Leave (Get Out)".

Timbalind feat. JoJo - Losing Control

Happy Birthday Courtesy of Willard Scott

Lately as I've been getting ready for work (aka dressing for success in jeans and flip flops), I've been watching the today show.  I always seem to get a chuckle out of Willard Scott and his Smucker's Birthdays.

I see these people past 100 and just get a warm little feeling in my heart...

Viola Weeks, old Brooklyn, NY 100 years old: attributes to longevity to faith in god and eating healthy loves to put good things in her garden.

Cordelia Figgat, Charleston, WV 104 years old: taught herself keyboarding at 93 wrote a book at 100 and is the oldest living alumni member at Marshall University

Edna Smith Sugar Land, TX 102 years old: cooks, cleans and enjoys doing laundry, avid member of her Baptist church.

Then I think...

Well what would good old Willard say about me if I (and he) made it past 100??

Pop Princess, Boston, MA 101 years old: enjoys watching crimeshows and blogging.  Still able to drive her antique 2000 chevy cavalier and attributes longevity to the company of her 6 cats.

Moose got married, the social media aftermath

Moose got married to Sticky.  The wedding stories/posts will be coming out soon, apologies for the delay...but honestly I just don't know where to start.  Anyhoo, last week I was blowing up everyone's facebook mini-feeds when I posted two wedding albums, respectfully named:

"I'm sorry this is my first time"


"like oh my gosh i'm so in love"

It's up to you to decide which of those words Sticky uttered mid-ceremony on their wedding day...

So the happy couple returned from their gorgeous honeymoon in iItaly  just two evenings ago (DBJ folks, your time will come)
note: DBJ - don't be jeal - get with it!!!

As my gchat status currently states: Moose has staged a physical assault on facebook since she re-entered the U.S.

Why am i single?

Q: Why am I single?

A: Last night, since I'm minding Moose & Sticky's apt while their on their honeymoon (wedding blog series - COMING SOON!)  I decided to go over and do some laundry.  And by some I mean about 3 weeks worth, at the very least.

But that's not all.

Moose & Sticky have not been in their apartment in over two weeks, so when my tummy started a-grumbling...there was slim-pickins in in cabinets/fridge/freezer.  Instead of walking to the store and buying something I decided to make do with what I had.

On my dinner menu was:

1 Fresca
1/2 cup of mixed nuts
8 Carr's table water crackers
10 shrimp cocktail

Now, the kicker here is that I definitely could have made pasta.  But that would have taken 8-10 minutes.  The shrimp cocktail directions were as follows: 

Place in collinder and run cold water for 5 minutes.

Thanks for cupping my balls...

One time (about oh two weeks ago), I went to Mexico with co-workers  on a trip we won.

The first night at the resort after about 12 cocktails the staff convinced me and 'Missle' to go on the stage and be part of their show.

Little did I know that the game we were about to play involved taking a ping pong ball and working it up one pant leg and down the other as many times as you could in one minute.  WTF minute-to-win-it is taking over the world.  Confused?

Up one pant leg...

Out the other...

I was pretty awkward especially when Missle told me I should name my Mexico facebook album 'thanks for cupping my balls'...until I started talking to the pair next to me...

Me: God that was awkward, we're co-workers.
Chick next to me: Seriously? This kid is my brother!

I made Beef look like a terrorist

So I think it was this article that popped up today that reminded me of what I did to my dear sister beef about year or two ago.

I had just started my sparkling career as an event planner. 

I borrowed Beef's suitecase to take on the train to NYC in September for my first big conference.  In the scramble to pack up our event and catch the train back to Boston, I tossed a pair of box cutters in the front zip pocket of the suitecase. 

Flash forward to Christmas.  Beef is taking a trip to San Diego with First Lieutenant Blackout and his family for a wedding.  She plops her big red suitcase on the conveyor belt without a care in the world.  About 5 minutes later they are removing box cutters from her sutiecase and detaining her.

Whoopsies.  Sorry Beef.  

Don't worry she wasn't put on any no-fly lists and she did eventually make her flight...

D's don't get degrees??

Courtsey of 
In the Mount Olive, N.J. school district, "D" is defunct -- banned on report cards. Now, students who receive less than a grade of C automatically fail.

Mount Olive school district superintendent Larrie Reynolds says "D's are simply not useful in society ... No one wants to hire a D-anything, so why would we have D-students and give them credit for it?," according to an article in The New York Times.

Taken at face value, I can definitely see the point. I hate flying, for example, and panic at the thought of a low-achieving, D-level pilot trying to keep my plane aloft. And the unsavory image of a filthy, rat-infested kitchen is more than enough to keep me out of a low-ranking, D-rated restaurant.

But wait -- is this what we're really talking about here? Would a D in Humanities mean that my pilot couldn't find his way to London? If the chef at my favorite bistro got a D in French, would that mean he couldn't plate a boeuf bourguignon?

[blah blah blah insert boring info about article writer's children]
The Mount Olive school district is developing a support system to help students meet the tougher grading standards, according to The Times, including a "watch list" for those who continue to fail, extra-help classes and tutoring from other students. It has also created an optional evening school, known as "Sunset Academy," that will charge a fee of $150 per failed class that needs to be made up.

All of the parents and teachers quoted in the article support the no-D policy, as do all but one of the students interviewed by the Times. I can't say I'm surprised. We have created a world where our kids are over-scheduled from the time they're toddlers and face, quantifiably, the fiercest competition ever for precious Ivy League school slots.

We have also created a world where schools and school districts with high-scoring students receive more funding, and more accomplished and dedicated teachers, than those where students struggle.

Sure, there will always be Spicoli-type slackers and stoners who do just enough to skate by. But for every one of those purposeful underachievers, there are kids who are truly doing their best. Kids who have after-school jobs or take care of younger siblings. Kids whose parents simply don't have the resources to send them to expensive tutoring centers. Kids who will be successful novelists even if they get a D in math, or revolutionize physics even if they're thought to be slow language learners.

I could easily fall back on the lists of millionaires and celebrities who made good without a high school or college diploma, but I don't think that's the issue. I want my kids to stay in school. I want them to go for an advanced degree or even two, if that's what they want. But most of all, I want them to find balance in their lives, to be happy and healthy, and to take their eyes off the destination long enough to enjoy the journey along the way.

Takeaway: D's don't get degrees in parts of the dirty jers. if your kids are dumb, don't move there.

Wedding Entrances...

Moose and Sticky are getting married on Aug. 27th.

My I hate "video"

Maybe you've seen them these "I hate" videos I speak of, I guess they are kind of a new fad.  My future husband, Daniel Tosh, featured one of these vidoes on his show.  I felt equally compelled to make one for myself. 

Unfortunately, my plan was foiled by the lack of a webcam, but I figured a list of things I hate would work just fine.

I Hate Video
Web Redemption2 Girls, 1 Cup ReactionDemi Moore Picture

I hate when I'm driving and I sneeze, I really do see my life flash before my eyes.

I hate when people call me m'am.  I'm 24, my claddagh is not flipped, that's miss to you young man.

I hate when people e-mail me requesting something I've already sent them.  Learn how to read a-hole. 

I hate when people use their facebook status messages/AIM away messages etc to tell me what their every next move for the next 12-24 hours will be: "Getting out of bed, eating breakfast, going for a quick run, shower, work for awhile, dinner with my loves xoxoxox, then out for the night!!!" If you forget what the plan is after your shower, do you just look back at your status message?

I hate when people fart at the gym.

I hate when people think their car is better than my 2001 Chevy Cavalier. Automatic windows and locks are

I hate the barenaked ladies.

I hate when I'm at the bar after a day at the beach and people look at my sunburn and say things like "that really looks like it hurts", "that doesn't look very good", or "I like your tan lines". It's an Irish tan and was intential, deal with it.
I hate PT Cruisers.

I hate that people judge me because I'm on twitter. I like to stay connected (@popprincess301, der).

I hate parking far away from my apartment and then seeing a space front and center as I approach my place.

I hate the confused look people give my when I talk about my iphone (note: my iphone is a blackberry).

I hate when I'm at a bar and a group of obnoxious people (likely dressed up for some form of wedding sendoff, birthday, going away party etc) think they are the life of the party.  I'm here with my friends.  We are better looking and we are the life of the party.

I hate people who don't like fun.

"I think Beef ate everything"

RQF Fox: I think Beef ate everything, including your happiness

(From the left: Moose, Beef, Popprincess)

Thursday, May 13, 2010

All the single ladies, all the single ladies...

Okay, let's be honest. I'm not new to the game. I read and saw he's just not that into you. I'm 99.9% sure I'm not as delusional as many ladies are, no offense  (you're probably not self-aware if you are in fact delusional, so I'm not sure why I think that would actually offend anyone, but I digress).

 Let's queue up some standard He's Just Not That Into You  quotables/videos.

Okay, Okay, Okay, I GET IT!

So let's get to the nitty, gritty, you're probably asking yourself what I, Popprincess, am truly getting at here. So here we go....

Even if you're not pining over a dude by any means,even if you're only slightly interested after going out a few times, plain and simple it's a bruise to your ego if he doesn't call you.  He should be pining over you. Am I right?

I know, I'm right.  I didn't give in I didn't call,  Popprincess stood strong.  I did not call, I did not text, and I certainly did not BBM(blackberry message).  After no word for a solid two weeks, I moved on, ego bruised, but head held high.

So he doesn't call.  You don't break out your voodoo doll do you? But in the back of your head you hope for some sort of sweet revenge.  

So this dude that shall remain nameless sort of fell of Popprincess' radar ...until this past Monday.  I was watching Gossip Girl with Moose and looked on my phone at my bbm list.  A name I had never seen was in my list of contacts.

**This photo has only been altered to conceal the identities of my friends/family

Me:  Who the eff is Tony Stark?

Moose: What???

Me: Oh my God, Oh my God, Oh my God.

 The dude that shall remane namless had mentioned 'Iron Man' in a previous conversation.  He was excited for Iron Man 2.  

But he changed his effing BBM alias to the name of a character in a movie.  Effectively, this would be like if I went to Twilight Eclipse, In Theaters June 30th, and then changed my BBM name to Bella. 

Sweet mother of all Karma this is amazing.  My ego is no longer bruised.  This kid is a total wang.  Victory is mine.

 So ladies, a word of advice, a takeaway if you will.  If a a dude, like the dude who shall remane nameless (Tony Stark), offers up Hot Tub Time Machine, as a first date, steer clear, go with your gut, look for love elsewhere*.



*editor's note: if you're wondering, yes I went to hot tub time machine.  oh and I never got a meal of food out of 'Tony Stark' DEAL BREAKER.
