You know those days when it seems like nothing is going your way?Â And everything just feels so draining?Â And things that you normally whip through seem to take forever?Â And all you want to do is curl up on the couch and watch movies you’ve seen a million times and nap?
I’ve been feeling like that since Friday afternoon.
Generally I’m of the “fake it ’til you make it” school of thought -Â if you pretend that you have energy and spirit, you’ll end up feeling like you do.Â So I managed to distract myselfÂ for large chunks of time by hanging out withÂ friends on Friday and Saturday.Â But sometime Sunday morning I lost the energy to even fake it.Â
The Lakers sweeping the Nuggets yesterday cheered me up a little bit, but I gotta perk up some more.Â I’m going to see fabulous Eddie Izzard tonight, so maybe that will do it… I have my fingers crossed!
Happy Earth Day, party people!
May I suggest you visit www.google.com to check out their gorgeous logo for the day and to read more about Earth Day?

Personally, I don’t care if the show is on Lifetime instead of Bravo after this next season.Â I already watch Golden Girls reruns on Lifetime (LOVE THEM!), and I like that Lifetime turns great books like The Memory Keeper’s Daughter and Plain Truth into TV movies.Â And I loved it when they turned four Nora Roberts books into movies last year!Â
I guess I’ll have to pay extra close attention to season five when it airs in July… just in case it’s the last one.
You know what sucks about being a grown up?
Having to do things that scare you by yourself.
Like going to the dentist to get your two front teeth sawed off.
It wasn’t really that bad – my two front teeth got knocked out in a playground accident when I was eight, and I had two root canals, so there’s no feeling there. Except for in my gums.
But I’m terrified of sitting in that chair. I get all nervous and tense and sweaty. My heart races and my arms and legs feel heavy. I just hate the dentist. So I get into the seat, try and breathe deeply and steadily to calm myself. And as the work drags on and on and on, I calm down. It’s really not that bad.
Now I have two new (although temporary) crowns on my front teeth. Even these temporary ones look a million times better than the ones I just had taken off. But… damn. I have to go back in a couple weeks to get the permanent ones on. I’m not looking forward to it.
So, my BFF Sneaky McTrickyPants, has a text stalker. She met this guy when she was doing a 5K race, and they hung out once. This was enough to get him hooked on her – he immediately started text stalking her.
A day after they hung out: “Ha yea I won’t lie I’m stoked what time would you like a big sexy man to stop by?”

Random texts every few hours for the next couple days… during which time Sneaky only responds to every 3rd text.
2 days later: “U should come visit me.”
2 hours later: “I’m up all night we could make out ”
The next day he picture messages a random photo of himself.
The next day: “Staying up late again u should be here to keep me company.”
Three hours later: “We should hang out I’ll be exhausted but in need of a beautiful woman’s touch.”
Later that day: “Soooooo what would I have to do get a back rub?”
Sneaky ignores the back rub comment and says something random, to which he replies that he’s hanging out in Boston (he leaves about an hour outside the city). She doesn’t respond.
An hour later: “Heyyyyy come back I’m about to leave Boston.”
Sneaky texts him that she doesn’t feel well (which is, obviously, not true).
He says: “Awww want me to bring u something and take care of you.”
An hour later: “Well if u need anything soup movies etc ill be happy to pop by and take care of u.”
10 minutes later: “Just hope you feel better get some rest.”
2 days later, after random texts…: “Sorry I was off the radar yesterday I literally just slept all day, how was work?”
No response, so 2 days later: “Hey pop tart sorry i have been mia I actually am looking for a place to live and this has me all caught up.”
3 hours later: “Who knows we may actually hang out again.”
5 minutes later: “Yea cause I’m not sure if I told you but I kinda like you I just don’t want to scare you off.”
5 minutes later: “Just a little though so don’t let it go to your head. ”
I almost died laughing scrolling through these texts. In the first place, when did texting replace actual conversations? Phone calls? Dates? Apparently these things aren’t necessary nowadays. In the second place… well, his attempt to not scare her off? Not working.
We take your concerns about language and society seriously (this is, after all, our business) and after reading feedback on the entries for female and lady, we carefully reviewed our editorial decisions. In light of how our customers use Thesaurus.com on a daily basis, we chose to remove â€œweaker sexâ€ as a informal/slang synonym from our site.
My work is never done.
Yesterday: I bounced and squealed my way around the office because Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway were filming a scene from Bride Wars right around the corner from my office.Â Their trailers were RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY OFFICE BUILDING.Â Obviously, I stalked the movie set until I saw them.Â Kate is freaking GORGEOUS.Â I didn’t get quite as good a view of Anne – I just saw the side of her face and back – but she looked amazing too.Â
I’m loving that so many movies are filming so close to my office – it makes it easy to go see famous people!
Today: I read on Jezebel (my favorite gossip site because it provides more substantial content than most, has great writing, and is committed to reducing girl-on-girl crime) that, when you look up the word “weaker” on Thesaurus.com, the two main entries that you get are “lady” and “female.”
I looked it up and it’s true.Â Â Sigh.Â IÂ just contacted the site to complain.Â You should too.
Update: I just read through the comments on Jezebel and looked into thesaurus.com’s crappy synonyms some more.Â Want to be disgusted and horrified and PISSED OFF?Â Â Check out the definition of man.Â Now check out the definition of woman.
I am SEETHING.
I spent a good chunk of last night in front of the TV, catching up on the brilliantly tacky Rock of Love 2 and writing furiously.Â Not work or blog posts or even – gasp – fiction, but dates.Â And appointments.Â And concerts.Â And weddings.
I’m ditching my Palm Pilot and going back to a written planner.
I just got tired of the dealing with the tiny stylus and keyboard.Â Tired of not being able to see a full week at a time.Â Tired of forgetting to recharge it and having it die right when I needed it.Â Tired of not being able to easily create daily to-do lists.Â
After hours of searching online (okay,Â probably more like 30 minutes), I found this awesome planner from Bob’s Your Uncle at See Jane Work.Â It’s great – a week per page, with a page for notes and doodles facing the week.Â And it has fun colors!Â
I’m in love.Â
I get that Lucky can get a little… umm… unrealistic with some of their fashion advice.Â But this month’s issue takes this a little too far – they have an article called “How To… Wear Pegged Pants.”Â Yes, you read that right – pegged pants!Â
Of all the trends I hateÂ that have made a comeback (I’m looking at you, leggings!), pegged pants are definitely the worst.Â Sure, I wore pegged pants in 1991 like the rest of the girls in my sixth grade class.Â But it’s 2008.Â And – at least as far as I know -Â Lucky doesn’t target 11 year olds.Â Â
I’m not sure I’ll be able to restrain myself from screaming obscenities if I start seeing this “trend” on the street.Â
