#55- Would you consider a paper mache moosehead essential?

If you’ve read this blog or know me personally, and you are not addicted to crack, then you have probably come to terms with the fact that I will never be your financial adviser.  I have as well.   And if you worship follow Oprah’s philosophy, you have heard her say many times that if you want…

#54- Beauty is in the eyelash of the beholder

Avid Out With The Old! blog reader and cat-lover, Julie, from Ohio, wrote in to suggest I apply a lash primer before applying mascara. She included the encouraging sentiment of “you won’t believe how great it works.”  I headed to Benjamin Moore and they had just sold their last tube, so next I ventured to Sephora and purchased this tube….

#53- Another year wiser…

Today I had no choice in my new thing: I turned 28. I assure you, I’ve never done this before. I took the day off, and I plan to go fart around town all day. Fun Factor: 10

#52- Descendants of both Picasso and Einstein

If you have spent any quality time reading the comments on this blog that you crazy readers post, then perhaps you are familiar with the bizarre psyche of my father, Frank.  When I was home this past weekend, I noticed something pinned above the computer on a cork board that I assumed was a drawing etched by my 5-year-old nephew, as he…

#51- And *POOF* I was unimpressed

I went home this weekend, which means lots of QT with my family, including my nephew (5) and nieces (almost 3 and 1.5).  They are the kind of little kids you want to take a bite out of and eat their chubby little arms for a pretend mid-day snack.  Among many other hilarious encounters:                  I…

#50- June Cleaver could have accomplished so much more…

**Disclaimer:  If reenacted, this new thing will be best suited for family-types and those with severe OCD.  There are so many steps to making a home meal happen.  1. Hungry belly.  2. Think of something to eat.  3a.  Watch many taped episodes of food network, er, I mean, 3b. Figure out how to make it. …

#49- Casual Friday is so 2007

Some people are pants shoppers.  I am a shirt/dress consumer.  I can’t get enough.  I find shopping for pants boring.  Because of this I average buying one pair of jeans every two years and wear them until they are unacceptable by society’s standards.  I won’t even get into my “work” pants situation- it’s mortifying.  Now,…

#48- Kind of like a lifeline, only more important.

It’s rather psychotic, my obsession with blogs.  I read decorating, DIY, craft, food, life, and fetish blogs on a daily basis.  Just seeing if you actally read the lame content of this blog.  I’ve been looking for a way to store these sites aside from marking them as favorites so that I can streamline the process of accessing…

#47- Joy, Rapture, Happiness, Divine.

Today a little part of me feels as though life can’t get much better than this, because:                 I made my own font. The amount of joy this has brought me is probably indicative of some sort of mental disorder.   All you need is a scanner, printer, $9, and a pen.  Check it out below yo….

#46- I believe in fair trade

Some files are just too obese to send via an email attachment, and until now I had no idea how to overcome this. Techie friend JC solved that, so for the first time: I traded albums online using sendspace. In the exchange, I got the soundtrack to the movie Once. If you haven’t seen it,…

#45- It was totally rad, man.

Last night some friends hosted a theme party, so: I went to an 80’s ski party. Like the outfit? Good times going on over here, folks. Good times. Fun factor: 8

Pervs abound

Side note- I’m somewhat disturbed by the number of folks who have been linked to post #43 by searching for “voyeur.” I feel used. And cheap.
