April 22 09

I’m drinking my free coffee from McDonald’s. and later I will be taking my mug to Starbucks to get another free coffee. (viva la earth day!)

I went to the jeans store with the intent to buy a pair of William Rasts and came out with two pairs of 7s. …and, wait for it, one pair is high-waisted. ohmigod, i know what you are thinking, because i was thinking the same thing. but while everyone else is getting lower and lower rises, i have a mommy-that-birthed-three-babies belly that never needs to see the light of day. you see, i am ANTI-MUFFIN TOP, and therefore, i am pro anything that makes me look hot without it. enter my new gingers. hey…if they are good enough for Rachel Bilson, they are good enough for me. because, seriously, she always looks good. except for that one time that she went out wearing those thermal pajamas and boots.


although now that i look at this picture i am realizing that i’d much rather be wearing this than the ensemble i am donning today, which includes my new pair of mary janes that my dog has already chewed the hell out of. can someone explain to me why Indiana only enjoys MY THINGS? my shoes. my clothes. my bras. my v-string. oh my god, my v-strings. it’s a good thing i rarely wear underwear because i am down to about 3 pairs that don’t have itty bitty indy-sized teeth marks all over them. ew.

I am officially in a fight with Rubbermaid.

I have been invited to a Gold Party. Have you ever heard of such a thing? I have never. but, long story short, it’s a tupperware party. except that you don’t have to buy anything (which, good, because, hello, PRESSURE. when i go to parties like that i end up coming home with some $400 machine that makes perfect tea and i’m all jazzed up about it and then my husband has to remind me that i don’t drink tea. and then i cry) and you actually walk out of the door with money which is a plus because hopefully i will trade in enough old bat mitzvah treasures to pay for that tea machine for the next party i’m in invited to.

I went to a taping of CityLine yesterday. Now, if you are not Canadian, I will tell you that going to CityLine is like going to Oprah!! only if you ARE Canadian, you will know that i am a big, fat liar.


because it’s totally not. but, even though it’s not ALL that exciting, AND they WERE talking about furnishing the outside of your home (and let’s face it, i can’t even afford to furnish the inside of my home), it was still ridiculous fun to watch from my front row seat (set your pvrs for next tuesday where you will see ME! make weird faces at the camera and fidget a lot! awesome) and because I am a total whore with zero shame, i totally forced myself upon Brian Gluckstein


(even though until 3 minutes before the show started, i had never heard of him) (Ilana, Melyssa, and Tova had to give me the 30-second version of CityLine for Dummies. good thing for me i’m a total winger, and made it look like I totally watch the show every day!)

I am slightly less disturbed by Return to Neverland than I am with the original Peter Pan. but I am still totally ready for missabella to be done with this whole peter pan stage. only, she’s taken to walking around saying “i’ll always believe in you Peter Pan” in this faux British accent that sounds way more Eastern European-ish. I’m doomed, aren’t I? She’s also taken to saying things like, “Mommy, i’m pretty sure i’m turning into a dolphin. i mean, look at my feet!” If I could bottle up this stage in her life and save it forever, i totally would. It’s THAT good.

  1. I, too, love the high-waisted jean for that reason. My big gripe with them, however, is that they don’t stay up around my waist, and then I have to hike them up ever 5 minutes so that it doesn’t look like my vag is somewhere around my kneecaps.

  2. City Line! Haha! Didn’t Dini Petty used to host(ess??) that show? Is it still her? And good on you for snuggling up to Mr. Gluckstein, is he that of towel and linen fame? I think I have a few items courtesy of him from my wedding registry…very soft! (the towels, not Mr. Gluckstein)

  3. Does City Line hand out things like free books and the audience breaks out into cinematic orgasmic frenzies? You know what, now that I just said that, I’m thinking I might drive through my McDonald’s and see if they’re giving out free coffee and I’ll show my appreciation straight up Oprah audience style.

    fadkogs last blog post..i was going to title this post ‘it sucked and then i cried’ but apparently there’s a book out there with that title, so now i’m stumped

  4. High-waisted jeans just sound so damn uncomfortable. That’s why I don’t wear jeans in the first place–I feel like they cut off my circulation!

    Will you send me Bella, pretty please? I need some humor in my day-to-day life.

  5. I went to a taping of City Line a few years ago back when Marylin Dennis hosted it. I was there on Home Day and it rocked (we went home with these rubbermaid storage boxes, huge ones, for your closet, not the microwave.) It is more like Oprah Lite πŸ™‚

  6. Great post! Love the description of CityLine- so true. But I can’t believe you had never heard of Brian Gluckstein! He’s amazing!

  7. I have no torso. I have ridiculously long legs, a belly button and then it is my boobs. I cannot wear any jeans that are “normal” rise or high-waisted.

    After spending the weekend with my niece, I’m pretty sure her and Isabella were separated at birth. Or both 3. SUCH a great age!

  11. I just got an invite to a Gold Party as well…
    I thought it was odd and wondered if Russell Oliver was going to show up.

  12. My FAVORITE movie for most of my childhood, and a good portion beyond (what am I saying, still love it), is the musical version of Peter Pan with Mary Martin. I would jump from my bed to my brothers singing “I gotta crow”. I’m pretty sure it’s part of the reason I ended up with a Theater degree.

  14. I thought Brian Gluckstein looked, from afar, like an elderly Bob Saget.

    I go to Tupperware parties too, and do exactly the same thing! “J!!” I’ll say, “Look at this combination guacamole maker/hand mixer! It was only $70!” And then he reminds me that I could achieve the same effect with a fork and a bowl and then I cry.

    Re: the Gold Party…Can I send you my ever-classy gold/silver/bronze chunky link Bat Mitzvah jewelry so you can cash in for me? πŸ™‚ (Why oh why do we still have that stuff? And why oh why have I not yet written a post about my bat mitzvah?)

  19. I don’t like CityLine so much anymore since Marilyn Denis is gone. But I have always thought about going to a taping. Unfortunately, I don’t live in TO. And I am inching back towards ‘higher’ waisted jeans too. ugh. Damn cesareans.

  20. Is Brian Gluckstein a bitch in real life? I would imagine he is (hope he’s not reading this!).
