I Gave Up Catholicism for Lent

Friday, February 23rd, 2007

Major Pet Peeve time. It’s that time of year again and it’s that day of the week. People raised Catholic will know what I mean. Actually, everyone should know what I mean…you can’t walk down the street without being bludgeoned over the head with ads for fish sandwiches, fishsticks, fish wraps, all-you-can eat fish, 50-piece […]

DIY Whore 2: The Sequel

Wednesday, February 21st, 2007

Oh my. I’ve had a life-long love affair with Converse Chuck Taylor hi-tops. Something about them just says “free-thinker”, and they will never lose their punk street cred. When I see a person in Chucks I feel an instant kinship with them. (I feel much the same about Doc Marten’s.) Anyway, I always look for […]

Birthdays are tedious

Tuesday, February 20th, 2007

Today is Whistler’s birthday!! I do in fact have a present for you, man. Actually, it’s your Xmess present that I never mailed. Should I give up and mail it, or do you think I’ll see you in person anytime soon? You probably have it already anyway. In the meantime, I’ve made you another present…in […]

DIY Whore

Monday, February 19th, 2007

Finally, after all the money I’ve spent at Starbucks, they’re giving something back to ME! Let me back up and explain. Every year at this time, after Xmess is over and summer not started, SBUX does a promotion where they try to educate the masses. “Did you know that you can customize your drink? You […]

May I Have the Envelope, Please? 2007

Friday, February 16th, 2007

It’s is that time of year again! Time to roll out the red carpet, usher in the paparazzi, and hide the booze and cocaine because the celebs are all coming to…. The 2nd Annual Tarsier Jungle “Marty” Awards!! It’s the eagerly-anticipated day where this site and its esteemed Academy of Tarsiers honor the very best […]

Quiet on the Blog Front

Thursday, February 15th, 2007

*sound of crickets chirping* That’s what it’s felt like out here on the ol’ Interweb lately. Where the hell IS everybody?? Seems like all my old blogging friends have quit blogging; I’m out here holding down the fort alone. It’s so disheartening that I get something like 90 comments per day, and only on very […]

Valentine’s Day Massacre

Wednesday, February 14th, 2007

To all you summer-lovin’, beach-bummin’, sun-worshipping poseurs out there, today I say: NEENER-NEENER-NEENER!! Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!!! THIS is why I love winter! Yesterday we got 4 inches of snow (which really is nothing, but we haven’t had any snow in PGH for so long that everybody went into Panic Mode), then we got a sheet of ice […]

Drive-By Hotting

Friday, February 9th, 2007

Nothing like a drive-by to make a Friday complete, and this is a good one. I’ve finally located some sneak previews of Clive’s upcoming Lancome ads… Holy mother of E! That is some serious goodness. Anyway, I found these pics at the very good, so go visit them to find the bigger versions.

Things in Pittsburgh that Don’t Suck v.3: A Little Cup of Happy

Thursday, February 8th, 2007

OMG, Pittsburgh has acquired a new something fabulous! We now have our very own gourmet cupcake shop! (Actually, I’m informed that we have two, but I am already a loyalist to the one in my ‘hood, so that’s the one I’m praising here.) Dozen Cupcakes recently opened in Squirrel Hill. I was skeptical at first; […]

Good Dog

Tuesday, February 6th, 2007

Today I want to send condolences to Loupy and LK, who lost their friend Max last week.  I wish you strength during this rough time. Though Max had a lot of health problems and a relatively short life, I think he was a lucky dog.  He lived with not one, but two of the best […]

Temps in PGH over the weekend not getting above 10…and true to my belief system, harsh winter weather = FUN! Friday night we went to dinner w/friends, and stopped at the Whole Foods/good liquor store plaza to stock up on cheese and wine for the winterbound days ahead.  After that, we pretty much didn’t leave […]

A tasty tidbit

Friday, February 2nd, 2007

of info that I gleaned from one of the many gossip sites I peruse….about a movie that I will actually look forward to! Seems there was a hot script floating around called “Nottingham” which inspired a studio bidding war. Universal won out, bought it, and plans to have Russell Crowe star. The gist of the […]
