Aha!


Oh my gosh. I found my dad's doppleganger. And he's famous (the doppleganger, not my dad).
It's John Belushi, the late, great SNL legend!


(Especially in this picture)
Not the most glamorous doppleganger, but he looks so much like my dad I'm surprised I haven't noticed before.

Who's YOUR doppleganger?

Oh boy

It's a lazy saturday at the RN household. I went upstairs to change from pajamas to "lounge wear." Which includes PJ pants. Oops.
So I change and then realize something: my pants, cardigan, and Tshirt are all navy blue. This is weird, albeit understandable because I love navy blue. Still, it's kind of odd. Then I realize something.
I'm wearing my only pair of BLUE underwear.
I don't know what all of this means, but it can't be good. I'm grabbing the cats and getting into my bomb shelter.
Not quite, but still. Freaky.

Glee vs. Ugly Betty


Within the past few days, I've noticed a plethora (fancy word count: 1) of striking similarities between two of my favorite shows,
Ugly Betty and Glee. Shall we?
1. Both had (or will have) Kristen Chenoweth as a guest star (Betty's dentist/former gleek)
2. Both have (or had) Jamya Mays (Charlie/Emma) as a cast member
3. Both have awesome love-to-hate enemies (Wilhelmina/Sue)
4. Both have delightful gay guys (Mark/Kurt)
5. Both have wonderful fashion inspiration (Most Mode-ers/Rachel and Emma)

And here's the big one:
6. Both have had love triangles in which there's a guy (Henry/Mr. Schue/Finn) who is somehow romantically attached (via marriage, dating, etc) to "meh" girl (Charlie/Terri/Quinn) who he doesn't really love. But he does love the good girl (Betty/Emma/Rachel). But alas! "Meh" girl goes ahead and gets herself knocked up, forcing the guy to ditch the good girl in order to be a good father to his unborn child.

BONUS: In two of these instances, the baby may be the guy's... OR it could be the lover's (Dr. Farkas/Puck). Who knows? (Except we know, and in the former case it's the guys, and in the latter it's the lover's)

PS: I'm not bashing Glee for copying Ugly Betty, or vice versa. Every TV show has it's similarities with other TV shows. There's only so many plot lines you can run without going into crazy and/or inappropriate and/or boring territory.

Happy New Year

To all my Jewish readers, L'Shanah Tovah!
I don't know about you guys, but the best thing about Rosh Hashanah (and many jewish holdays) is the food. Mmmmm honey cake!

Nice Try

I went into the mall thinking: 
"Ok, I'm going to go to Pottery Barn, J. Crew, Old Navy, and Macy's. That's it. And I need pants, shirts, and cardigans. That's it. NO dresses. I have enough dresses. Oh, and I need shoes too. But nothing more."

I came out of the mall 2.5 hours later.
I went to Pottery Barn, J. Crew, Old Navy, Macy's, Hollister, American Eagle, Aerie, Gap, and Lord & Taylor's.
I got two dresses and a scarf.

Mission NOT accomplished.

Ode to J. Crew

Ah my dear J. Crew... 
I have a love affair with you.
Your clothes are chic and cute and nice
But your prices-- they make me think twice.
Your gorgeous dresses make me drool 
And I imagine wearing them to school.
But oh, 't'will never be, I know
Because $100 is a lot of dough.
And yet I still look, despite my sorrow
In hopes that it will go on sale tomorrow.
But even your sale section makes me sad
As good is gone, and bad is too bad.

I admit with delight that I have some of your clothes
But the desire for more lingers like the flow'ry stench of a rose.
(I added that apostrophe just for fanciness and fun
Because more apostrophes never hurt anyone!)
So to the outlet again I must leave
To buy more cardigans with rips in their sleeves.
Upon the sartorial leftovers I must feast
Snatching up clothes with the speed of a beast.
And now I must end, for I'm out of pics
Which I interspersed for prettiness and kicks.
So J. Crew, for you I have one plea:
Give us the goods without the large fee!

(Pictures aren't really mine:
They're from the J. Crew catalogue, online!)

You know you're crazy...

When you spend:
15 minutes narrowing your header font down to eight choices
30 minutes picking your new font out of the eight
30 minutes customizing said font to fit your needs
0 minutes on college stuff (or anything else you should be doing)

Crazy? Maybe.
Procrastinating? Yes.

PS: Do you like it?
