Annoying Things That Are Pissing Me Off

Internet, the economy is in tatters, several people have already RSVP-ed no to my wedding, a friend of mine got laid off today, my cat peed on my bed for the six billionth time---don't worry, he has a vet appointment this week---and earlier this evening I was standing on a street corner waiting for Sean when a man walked past and tried to win my affections by using the line "Hey baby, you tired? Want me to pick you up?"

The Knot's Got Nothing On Me

So all of a sudden it's March and I'm freaking out. I do this every March, actually---find myself at a point where I can't possibly believe two months of the new year are gone already and I've done NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING with them---but this year the inherent panic of It Being March Oh My God is heightened by the fact that March is one month closer to September than February was, and September is when I'm getting married.

And to think at my old office, we didn't even recycle the copier paper.)

Lather, Rinse, Repeat

Internet, I need a new shampoo. Well, actually I need a new haircut---my last one was this one, in October if you can believe it---but I rather think a new shampoo will be easier to come by, at least for the moment. You know, while the economy is crashing down around our ears and my newly-diagnosed cat is bankrupting me with things like glucose curves and pet-sitting bills and low-carb diets. (Seriously! My cat is on a low carb diet! He's just like Jennifer Aniston!)

Bad Decision Thursday: Swimwear FROM HELL

Well, we haven't done one of these in a while, have we? So to celebrate, I've got a real doozy for you. Honestly, Internet, I just don't even know how to describe this one. I don't know where my mother could even have purchased such an item. It is quite possibly the most ugly piece of clothing I've ever seen in my life, and I've a feeling I only have to show it to you for you to agree.
