Wild Women Do

I just downloaded every song from the pretty woman soundtrack...

We definitley listened to this cassette tape for the entire summer of 1990 at our beach house. 

Glad my mother and aunt were allowing their daughters to rock out to a soundtrack from a movie about a prositute.  Family values i tell ya.

Skip the Starbucks...

Hello Readers!

I have a special request.  I know I promised I would never beg you for money for my some unknown disease and send messages via facebook that said things like:

""I've reached my goal of raising $5,000 for [insert cause here] but if each of you just donated another $20 dollars I could double that. Off for another run by the water, 8 minute miles today :)".

True to form, I am not asking you to support my goal, and that's probably because I've been sitting on my couch mowing on cheese-less items watching biggest loser or crimeshows and haven't been on a training regime like other motivated people.  But I digress.

My friend Berg is doing a mini-triathalon for leukemia, as I was writing this little blog he got $50 in donations.  He's only trying to get to $2,700, so I think you should help!

That's why I say, put down the Starbucks, that DD iced coffee (and yes the donut too).  Your triple grande soy vanilla latte costs you $6.25. 

Lock it up and give Berg a few bucks for a good cause.

"Sleep-Talkin Man"

Found this blog and it's absolutely hilarious! This woman writes transcrips of what her husband says in his sleep.  Here are a few of my favs:

"Skipping to work makes everything better."

"You're pretty. pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty.... [long pause] Now fuck off and be pretty somewhere else. I'm bored."

"Yeah, keep looking. It doesn't get any better than this."

"You can't be a pirate if you haven't got a beard. I said so. MY boat, MY rules."

Overheard at the Office

Let's talk about...

Girl From Promotion Team:  But I don't think it's appropriate to use the word 'penetrate' in a promo e-mail.

Her boss: Get your mind out of the gutter.

12 More Days



Why am I single?

Senior year of college I won a snowboard at a bar.

I was so preoccupied with the snowboard I left my entire purse at the bar. 

I woke up on the floor of my bedroom, confused.  I walked downstairs and saw a snowboard...even more confused.  My roommate filled me in.

I updated my AIM away message to 'Apparently I won a snowboard last night?", and then went to retrieve my purse.

There's a photo of me in my college yearbook...hammered, snowboard in hand.

Best facebook status of the week...

Go to Google Maps.

Look up 8 Sampsonia Way, Pittsburgh, PA.

Go to street view.

Travel down the street to the grass lot on the corner.....

Just do it, I promise it's worth it.

But sir, I'm turning 24, not 19...

In a few days, I will be turning 24, that's right 24.  Moose, described this year's bday ever-so-kindly via a facebook invite as the last birthday before Beef and I collectively turn 50. 


As J-Simps would say "it's like almost twenty-five, which is almost mid-twenties"

So almost being half-way to fifty almost a quarter of a century...but not quite.

As I mentioned before, Moose so kindly created a facebook invite for Beef and I for our Double-Golden Birthday promising "a good time filled with bar tricks, sick dance moves, and maybe even a twin v. twin drink off".  Needless to say we were pretty excited.

However, Neighb, my old college roommate gave me a disturbing call on Monday night.  She said something to the effect of:

"My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw another facebook invite for the bar we're going to for your Birthday, there's a lotta people invited. I guess it's pretty serious".

So, armed with my crime-show skills, and crime-solving knowledge, I ask Neighb if I can log onto her fook account, and make a startling discovery.

I could not believe what my eyes were seeing.  Before reading on, please keep the following things in mind:

#1 I'm turning 24
#2 The bar holds 150 people, max.
#3 I'm turning 24

I quickly scanned the page to see the number of people attending.  This is not an exaggeration

"This event has 115 confirmed guests"

Might attend (88)
Awaiting Reply (393)

I think...who even has five hundred friends??? And then I read further...

Party at [insert name of bar], Saturday, January 23rd. $3 Dollar drafts and shot specials.

This is the theme...there is no theme. We are in winter mode, and some of us tend to get a little "crazy" when we go out. The weather sucks, and we all need a little lovin...Drunkest dude and chick each get a $100 gift certificate the next day when they go back to pick up their credit card. Full sand pit and mist machine...Lets get nuts. Hook Up or Throw Up!
Okay, I might seem like a wild child...and yes I have previously admitted that I make it in public.  But there is no way, no how, this is going to be our birthday party.
Now, to add insult to injury, in the comments section it said:
"They better bring a mop...cuz it's gonna get MESSY!".
The next day I call the bar, the 'organizer' assures me that things will be fine...I wanted to say "but sir, I'm turning 24, not 19 I mean that invite speaks for itself.  We moved on, and decided to choose =a different, a bit classier bar, down the street. 
Sorry kids, no mist machine or sand pit where we're headed.  But like Moose said, we can absolutely promise bar tricks, sick dance moves, and dance-offs.  Maybe even a smooch from one of the birthday girls. 
Hook-up or throw up certainly isn't the goal. 
If either of the above the words of bewitched...C'est la vie!

The Year Without Cheese - Week 1

I successfully made it through my first week without cheese.  Only a mere 2 days into my month without cheese, I walked into Moose's kitchen and brought a box of Cheez-its back to the couch.  Moose just looked at me and said "Dude you can't eat those".  Needless to say, it's been a long week.

The work week was fine, filled with cheeseless sandwiches, etcetera.  I successfully avoided going out for lunch at a Mexican restaurant with some co-workers.  Imagine a Burrito without cheese [seriously, imagine it].

That ain't right.

The weekend, well that was a whole different ball game.  We went out for lunch for Beej aka Bonalyn's birthday and of course my ever-so-kind sisters ordered nachos.  The waiter came up to the table and cleared plates and glasses only to place the most ginormous plate of nachos I'd ever seen directly in front of me.  I'll tell ya, hot cheese never looked so good.

 "No sir these are for the bitches at the other end of the table", I wanted to say. 

I slide the plate down to Moose and Beef and wallowed with my loaf of bread and butter.  The rest of the outing consisted of several hours of drinking during the daylight, and by nightfall, after a 2 block limo ride to our 4th bar, the crowd was ready to refuel.  I bopped over to see what they'd ordered, and to my dismay, I saw Beef pulling a chip with cheesy goodness from yet another pile of the January-forbidden nachos. 

I resisted,  and instead grabbed what was probably bud light number 9 11.

To make matters worse, today my roommates decided to munch on some cheese fries from the comfort of the couch directly across from me.  Really?   "Hey, I didn't give up Cheese." said Vickie. 

So, I ask what is rarely uttered from a single girls lips, Where are you February???

United State of Pop...

I couldn't help but share the rest with you!

"Another year, another year-end mashup, once again consisting of the top 25 most popular hit songs of 2009, according to Billboard Magazine.

This is a follow-up to last year’s United State of Pop 2008 (Viva La Pop) and the original United State of Pop from 2007.

This year in the charts, so many of the pop songs this year seem to tell the same story: Yeah, we’ve been through a lot, but right now we’re gonna celebrate with music and dance, and it’s gonna be ok. With that spirit in mind, I invite you to…BLAME IT ON THE POP

The Black Eyed Peas - BOOM BOOM POW
Lady Gaga - POKER FACE
Lady Gaga Featuring Colby O’Donis - JUST DANCE
The Black Eyed Peas - I GOTTA FEELING
Taylor Swift - LOVE STORY
Jason Mraz - I’M YOURS
Kanye West - HEARTLESS
The All-American Rejects - GIVES YOU HELL
T.I. Featuring Justin Timberlake - DEAD AND GONE
Kings Of Leon - USE SOMEBODY
Keri Hilson Featuring Kanye West & Ne-Yo - KNOCK YOU DOWN
Jamie Foxx Featuring T-Pain - BLAME IT
T.I. Featuring Rihanna - LIVE YOUR LIFE
Soulja Boy Tell ‘em Featuring Sammie - KISS ME THRU THE PHONE
Jay Sean Featuring Lil Wayne - DOWN
Miley Cyrus - THE CLIMB
Beyonce - HALO
Katy Perry - HOT N COLD"

Personally I can't wait for the hits that 2010 brings.


It's a Nostalgic Mashup

So I'm an avid fan of the "mash-up".  If you've ever heard of Girl Talk  I know it's likely you probably appreciate the mashup too. 

*Shout out to Shark cuz I know she hearts a good mashup as much I do.

But if you're a 2008 college graduate it's likely all of the songs from that year bring you right back to that good 'ole college campus of yours. 

You might hate Chris Brown, but you love Forever. You definitley belted out Love Song & Bleeding Love (whether you're a dude or not).  And Love in this Club and Sexy Can I? were songs you most certainly bopped your head to even if you didn't know it.

So 'DJ Earworm' summed up by Senior Year of College in a nutshell (because what do I listen to other than top 40?).

Why am I single Wednesday?

Q: Why am I single?

A: On Easter Sunday, 2009 instead of going to church Moose and I watched Step Up 2.  Direct Quote from the movie:

"Yo, why my crib smell like Funyuns, broccoli and ball sweat".

The Year Without Cheese

The year without CHEESE? What are you THINKING? Ahem, Say Whaaaat???

You're right I think it's physically and mentally impossible for a woman to go an entire 365 days without cheese.

The Year Without Cheese is more of a mantra than a full calendar year without a food most people can't live without.

During The Year Without Cheese I will have a different task each month, whether it be giving something up or trying something new. 

Can you guess what the year without cheese starts out with? Nothing? That's right the month of January will be the month without cheese (read: the hardest month of my entire life). 

Over the weekend I was discussing my plan for the month with TACO:

Popprincess: I mean, it's going to be so hard, no pizza, mozarella sticks, Nachos??
TACO:  Wow, I really like your hierarchy of cheese.

Me too TACO, me too.  Unfortunately I did have some cheese on New Year's day (I just wasn't ready) so I will not be able to have Cheese until February 2nd. EFF. 

Whoever wants to join me at the local bar on 2/2 I will be ordering every single item on the menu that has cheese in it. 

Obvi I'll be blogging about how this whole shabang goes...

Here are the ideas I have for the coming months:

Ordering take-out, going to new bars/restaurants (aka not allowed to go to the beer garden for a whole month), no texting/bbm-ing, no internet & facebook (except internet for work), read a book a week, no chocolate or sweets, no complaining (okay that one might actually be impossible, but maybe I could try it for a week). 

Maybe it's a death sentence, maybe I'll fail, but it's better than giving up ONE thing for an entire year, getting to March giving up and saying "Welp guess I'll wait til 2011".  HELLO the world will end in 2012, if I'm giving things up/trying new things i've got to do it now. 

So wish me luck, Godspeed, etcetera etcetera cuz this year's gonna be a doozy!
