I’m not sure if this shady company, DMG Securities, recruited at anyone elses college, but they went hard at Virginia Tech. A friend of Eric’s fell for their lies and manipulation and took a job with them following graduation. His first few weeks of shadowing and recruiting were unpaid and then they expected him to pay a few thousand dollars to take some test to get certified in...

Do I Have Swine Flu? →
Check to see if you have swine flu symptoms.
I just spent over 2 hours trying to pick out some outfits for our engagement pictures on Saturday. I would love to go buy some new outfits for the occasion but sadly I have no money. Also, I just remembered I haven’t had my hair done in a minute - so I’m doing that in lieu of shopping.
I was just using the ladies room when I saw a produce sticker for PLU #93151 (which I think is an organic tomato) stuck to the back of the stall door. It also said Product of Mexico” around the border. Ew, why are you eating a tomato that likely is infected with Swine Flu (because it’s from Mexico) while you are using the toilet? If you are gross enough to do the above, you are...
Today defintely went downhill after lunch time. ...
Orange ya glad?
I sure am glad I just ate that orange because it was the best damn orange I have ever had in my life. No exaggeration.
Dear pregnant women,
I do not want to see pictures of your bare, pregnant belly on Facebook. If you want to take pictures like that, it’s absolutely fine. However, I don’t think you should share them with the world.
ohnoitsthecops: My friend told me that everyone has a “work spouse. You know, someone that you always talk to at work and joke with or go to when you’re stressed?” She has not seen the dudes in my office. Nor has she seen the handful of dudes in my office.
Today is a good day ‘cause it’s…BACON DAY!– Eric

(via thephenthouse) Alta Vista’s Babel Fish translation says: C’ is really odd. I think if it purposely were done, one could not arrive at this fantastic result. A work d’ art to some extent. thanks. I love those work d’ arts.
My mom is helping me try to find a table for our...
Mom: It has a wood top, but i think if you put down a fireproof pad it would be OK.
Me: What the hell is a fireproof pad?
Mom: I don't know if they even exist. I think they do....but whatever....I don't think the wood would start on fire.
Me: Oh yea, because wood hasn't been known to burn.
Important Women's Health Issue:
Do you have feelings of inadequacy? Do you suffer from shyness? Do you sometimes wish you were more assertive? If you answered yes to any of these questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist about Margaritas. Margaritas are the safe, natural way to feel better and more confident about yourself and your actions. Margaritas can help ease you out of your shyness and let you tell the world that...
On apartment living:
In three words, I hate it. It’s fine for now, and we’re staying put, but I hate so many things about this place. For instance, what are the dirty looking spots in select locations of the carpet? It’s not dirt, just dirty spots. I realize that makes no sense. But they appear in random spots for no apparent reason! Every so often I squirt some OxyClean spray on them and scrub...
I gave up.
On deleting "People You may Know"
It’s like that “Bop a Gopher” game at the boardwalk or arcade. You click on the “X” and another random person repopulates another empty space somewhere else on the grid. It’s impossible to get these people off of my Facebook! And I’m OCD like that where I need to.
I am x-ing out all of hte “People You May Know” on Facebook. I’m curious as to how Facebook calculates this because I’m pretty sure I’ve clicked over 1,000 times so far and it doesn’t seem like it’s stopping anytime soon. I wish this would be an optional feature.
I’d like to thank my 7th grade math teacher, Mrs. Larsen. To this day, I still use the “Percent/100 = Is/Of” formula that she taught us for everyday inquiries. I also still use the alligator analogy when figuring out if < or > should be used. Math isn’t my strong point.
19 days til the race!
That’s so soon! When we registered in February it felt like ages away, but it’s upon us. I got my race number, #156, and Eric is #166. That is of no significance but it makes it so real. I’m starting to get nervous and I’m not sure why. I’m not trying to win this thing (and I won’t) but it’s kind of crazy I can run upwards of 6 miles now when a few...
Missed doctor's appointment!
This morning as soon as I got into work, I looked in my planner to see when my ENT (Ear, Nose, & Throat) doctor’s appointment was. Turns out it was today at 9:00 am. I completely forgot and felt like the biggest jackass. I asked my boss for what excuse I should use (in hindsight, probably not the best idea) but I settled on car trouble. I told her I was having car trouble and...
6.5 miles accomplished + 90 degree weather = Wiped...
Running 6.5 Miles tonight...
in 92º weather. Not exactly looking forward to it.
The sentence “I never said she stole my money” can have seven different meanings...– A neat anecdote from the New York Times article on IBM’s Jeopardy-playing computer. Try saying the sentence out loud yourself; it checks out. (via gregbrown) HOT. (via peterwknox)
If people start sneezing when they come near me, it’s probably because the backside of my dress is now covered in pollen. I ate lunch outside in the 90º weather and no one told me that there was pollen allllll overrrrr the chairs before I sat down in a black dress. Good thing I don’t have allergies. Also, I’m kinda sweaty now. It sure is hot out there.
Eric and I went to Eastern Market, DC’s famed flea & farmer’s market. We were not impressed. At all. I guess people just talked it up so much that I was expecting this amazing place. It was quite small and didn’t have anything good to buy. I know that is pretty dependent on the vendors, but it was mostly worthless, overpriced junk. There were a lot of...
DCist: Super, Flu Edition →
Funny, Mazatlan is where I went for spring break my senior year. Mazatlan is a dirty, dirty place and there is no doubt in my mind that Swine Flu came from there.
Cooking up a nice dinner with Eric: Filet mignon Fresh steamed green beans Potatoes au gratin Vino, of course In case we don’t get enough calories from that, we’re heading to Carvel afterward for ice cream cones! I love warm weather so much.
2 wrong numbers
Today I had 2 different random numbers call my cell phone. 1 guy I couldn’t understand at all and the other was asking for Brian. My theory: some guy named Brian put up a personal ad on Craigslist for a male prostitute and listed the wrong number.
Off to Eastern Market!
