He bought about 1,400 acres of land in the state and built a “palatial mansion” where he entertained foreign dignitaries until 1822. It’s rumored that Philadelphians were jealous of New Jersey’s good fortune to have such an illustrious...

What is going on with my hair? Is it telling me to stop highlighting it? I’ve only been doing it for 10+ years. No but seroiusly, why is it doing this when I finally decided to grow it out? Now I have to get a trim. Damn you, hair. I need damage control ASAP.
Ashton: i just had 3 cupcakes
me: you just gained 3 pounds
From 3:00 to 5:00...
our work is hosting an “International Potluck Feast”. Can you say “THE OFFICE” - because I can. I’m almost tempted to go JUST to see how lame it is.
Current mood(s): frustrated, annoyed, hungry

Kenton: I guess not.

What’s the soup of the day? Ramen.– Overheard at a diner (you have got to be kidding me edition) via 1 Happy St. I want to go to this diner! Was it chicken or beef?
I'm Only 23!
jacklynharford: ohnoitsthecops: What is with my family thinking I need a boyfriend? Anytime I mention a boy, even if I’ve talked about him for years, they interrupt me with, “Is he cute? Single? Rich? Are you gonna date him?” They even do this if I mention a guy obviously undateable (500 miles away, 16 years old, married with children). This is why they never hear about the guys I actually do...

Dancing With the Stars...
is my guilty pleasure. Don’t judge me, it’s a good show. I really regret never taking dance classes when I was little. I also really respect the people that are extremely good at it. If there was one thing I wish I could do, it would be dance.

I just ate 3 stale Twizzlers before noon.
menstrom: It’s mornings like today that make me re-think giving up coffee for Lent. Ugh. It’s mornings like today that make me wonder why I don’t drink coffee on the regular.
I am really really tired. Like, for serious.
Friday night, after we all went our separate ways from Lucky Bar where we were celebrating Eric’s birthday, his newly broken up friend - we’ll call him Jim - ended up going home with another friend - we’ll call her Jane. She said they could go back to her place to do whatever it is they were planning on doing. They arrive via cab at “Jane’s” apartment and she...
Denis Rodman is a ridiculous human being.
And he sure loves his cranberry & vodkas. Drunkooo.
Who you be?
There is a girl that lives on my floor that, for the LIFE of me, I cannot tell if she’s 10 years old or just really short. Her face looks like either an older 10 year old or a really young 20-something. This just baffles me!
During my post-run strechting, I just spontaneously did a frog stand/tripod and pushed up into a headstand…and then toppled over after 5 seconds. That brought me back to 4th grade gym class. I might go do some more.
Holy Cow I'm hungover.
It’s almost 8 pm and I’m still feeling really hungover. I remember the, days not too long ago, when I didn’t even know what a hangover was. Seriously, I would jump right out of bed and get on with my day. Now, I’m lucky if I wake up. If/when I do, I eat and park myself on the couch and that’s where I remain for the remainder of the day because I physically...
Cherry blossoms are overrated.
duplo: Tyra just said that fierce is out. Apparently, “disgusting” is the new fierce. As in, “Girl, you look disgusting.” Use with caution until everyone gets the memo. I like it. I’ll start using it ASAP because it’s funny.
Possible Earth Hour Activities →
streetsofchicago: These are all terribly lame. But it brings me to my suggestion: EARTH HOUR POWER HOUR! Who’s in? Let’s do this. PH’s are my fave, wonderful idea. Mother Earth will also love all of the empties that I may or may not recycle.
