Ok seriously, i can't go a day without stories. Wake up, ride to airport. I don't feel good. like at all. Driver: "Do you want me to pull over?" Me: "no, I didn't eat anything yet so there is nothing to throw up. Oh except Iced tea." As I say the words the ice tea comes pouring out all over the side of the car. yes, pull over. NOW. More iced tea and more iced tea. I swear I wasted an entire half gallon of Wawa tea. On the flip side, I probably saved about 200 calories. I get to airport. I am scared to even take a sip of water because I think they will not allow me on the plane. There are signs everywhere about swine flu and i don't want them to think I have it. I survive.

I get in to airport and don't see my bags. Not once but twice I pick up one of the carousel that i think is mine. It is not mine. I am convinced that someone took mine and they left theirs. I finally go to the office and ask where my bags are. he tells me they are at the airport I was supposed to go to. Somehow I ended up at the wrong airport. Frosted Flake asks me how this can happen. I say its because I have been here 4 hours and I can't go that long without stories.


Happy Hallow's Eve friends! This is an epic day in the lives of the tree friends. We wait and plan for this day for Months, and it has arrived. Today I am in full on black Tim Burton costume material, watching Tim Burton Movies, and drinking Orange mimosas in commemoration of my Tree friend and our love of all things creepy. Sadly, the Tree friends are not together this year, but always in spirit. One in Texas and one traveling to Cali. for the festivities. Last night was the first night out for this glorious holiday, and it was def a success. We had lots of fun texting sessions between us which always brings the LOLs. I started off the night with some dear friends, and headed to a house party. Super Husband was a Vamp for the night, with custom fangs and all. On our way to the party we had a little scare with the fangs not staying in. We ask the cabbie to make a quick stop by Walgreens. We went ahead and picked up some Polygrip. Works like magic. Thank you Polygrip! You should extend your advertising to old peeps and Vampires.

SH hops in the front seat of the cab, and proceeds the vampire transformation via Polygrip. The cabby looks over and gets a little freaked out. He doesn't know what to do, so he just breaks down laughing. The laughter is contagious, and soon everyone has their giggle boxes turned over. It's the comedy cab. Great start to the night. The party was amazing, complete with fire dancers, psychics, and 2 tables full of jello shots. There were also caramel apples placed around the house. Um, yum. There were many cool costumes, and lots of weird people. My kind of place. Everything was going well, until I had a run in with a shark. My friends and I were hanging out, when a shark approaches. She starts to chat with us. I like the shark. I decide to try and communicate with her, so I start chomping and speaking in shark. "Chomp chomp chomp....nonk nonk nonk." She doesn't seem to understand, and walks away. Which is crazy that a shark can walk. Boobies asked me what I said to her, and I told her I was only trying to communicate in a way she would understand, which was in shark talk.
Well, apparently shark's boyfriend thought I was making fun of her, and proceeded to get upset. Unnecessary Paul Bunion. It's not my fault that the shark didn't understand her own language. I was giving her a compliment. Whatevs. Shark and Paul Bunion are lame.

The fire dancers come on, and one lady almost burns her own face. Woah. Close call. Not that it wouldn't have been am exciting moment in the night, but I don't want anyone deforming themselves for my entertainment. All in all, the night was a blast. It was basically a dress rehearsal for tonight, which I'm sure will have many misadventures in store for you all....

I thought I would share some of our texting sessions from last night....

J: This conversation is so funny now. Blonde Bandit wants this chick to come spray tan at her house tomorrow at 7:30am.

K: hahaha. That's awesome. I am in my corpse bride costume. So happy.

J: Haha. But B was getting mad. It was great. Not like really mad.

K: That's funny.

J: Have fun. I will prob keep texting. You know how I do.

(Later in the night.....)

K: Hi. I just saw fire dancers. Miss u! Ahhhhhhh!!

J: I am actually pretty drunk. Just played shuffle board. Miss you toooooo.

(an hour later.....)

K: Halloweeeeeeeen!!!! XOXO Rawr.

J: Hahahaha. Halloween yay. I love spooky.

K: I love doggies. And u!

J: I know right! Yay dogs.

(Another hour later...)

K: Um drunk and hungry.

J: Me too. So tired. It's like late here. Wahhh hah.

K: OMG! It's like 5am there! I keep forgetting. Where are y'all now?

J: No it's 1 here.

K: I am so retarded.

L: Oh really? I am too.

K: haha. That's why we are the perfect couple. Haha.

Now that is love... hahaha :)

Hi Guys, as most of you know I love doing charity work.  A close long time friend is working on the "Beer a Day for Jay" Campaign to bring some cheer to the troops overseas.  Our High School friend Jay is over serving our country and recently became a new dad!!  Coors Light has partnered with them to make the program a huge success.  Please see the letter below from Shaun and check out some of the videos.  If you would like to help out please contact Shaun Fishburn, his email address is listed below.  Anything that reminds the troops of home would be a great surprise for them!


Friends of BeerADayForJay Campaign,
This is to keep everyone posted on the campaign news, for all those who have helped out and are interested.  You may be following the YouTube channel and may be aware of this already, but in case some of us were busy and haven't had the time to keep up.  Jackie gave birth to beautiful baby girl, Isabel Grace, on October 12.  Lance Cpl. Jason Hill was unable to make it home, but was able to view the birth via webcam from his base in Iraq.  The baby has appeared on the channel numerous days since being born, so there is ample opportunity to get a glance of her.  She is absolutely beautiful.  We had a wonderful surprise on Day 73 where Grant Barrett, Director of Marketing for Origlio Beverages, presented Jackie a check for $1000 towards Isabel's college fund.  The BeerADayForJay Campaign would like to thank Grant, Coors Light, Origlio Beverages, and all the employees of the associated companies.  Johnny put together a great segment to honor the special occasion, and it is all incorporated in the "Day 73" video.  The link is:
The success of this cause is greatly appreciated to all the special guests that have appeared.  The list is already overwhelming, and we hope to keep it growing.  Special thanks to Mike Missanelli (Day 12), Good Day Philadelphia (Day 32), Vince Papale (Day 40), Governor Rendell (Day 51), Phil Martelli (Day 55), Fran Dunphy (Day 58), Bensalem Mayor Joseph DiGirolamo (Day 60), Chief of Police Fred Harran (Day 60), “America’s Sweetheart” – Shana DeRosa (Day 70) ,  Grant Barrett with Coors Light (Day 73) and CBS 3.
Thank you all and Let's Go Phillies!

I got this email forward about a week ago and can't stop thinking about it.  Read below and you will never want to set your purse down again..... ew. yuck.  icky.

While we may know what's inside our handbags, do you have any idea what's on the outside? Women carry handbags everywhere; from the office to public toilets to the floor of the car. Did you ever stop to think about where your handbag goes during the day.   'On the floor of my car, and in toilets.' 'I put my handbag in grocery shopping carts and on the floor of the toilet,' says another woman. We set out to test the average woman's handbag. It turns out handbags are so surprisingly dirty, even the microbiologist who tested them was shocked. Microbiologist says nearly all of the handbags tested were not only high in bacteria, but high in harmful kinds of bacteria. Pseudomonas can cause eye infections, staphylococcus aurous can cause serious skin infections, and salmonella and e-coli found on the handbags could make people very sick.  In one sampling, four out of five handbags tested positive for salmonella, and that's not the worst of it. 'There is faecal contamination on the handbags'. People with kids tended to have dirtier handbags than those without, with one exception.  The handbag of one single woman who frequented nightclubs had one of the worst contaminations of all. 'Some type of feces, or possibly vomit'.  So the moral of this story is that your handbag won't kill you, but it does have the potential to make you very sick if you keep it on places where you eat. Use hooks to hang your handbag at home and in toilets,and don't put it on your desk, a restaurant table, or on your kitchen countertop. Your handbag has gone where individuals before you have walked, sat, sneezed, coughed, spat, urinated, emptied bowels, etc! Do you really want to bring that home with you? 


oh and we love tu-tus!!


 I like the color black.  I like skulls.  I found this other really cool site today about Emily the Strange.  They have dark and creepy weird children’s clothes too.  Because my son is special.  And he needs to dress like me.  And I can not afford the matching hoodies from ameican apparel, so I choose to dress him in the same eerie manner I dress in.  Today my inspiration comes from Katrina from Sleepy Hollow.

and for the kiddies!!!...

I have been planning my future babies style for a couple of years now.  This is just a quick preview for the style of my non existent daughter.  She will in no way be wearing pink floral lame ass dresses.  I have a feeling that my mom will be pushing these outfits on some occasion, but I have something else in mind.  I work with kids ever day of my life which means I see all sorts of child fashion, and I do judge these 2 year old's outfits just as I would an adult.  Sorry babies. 

Now this is more like it.....



Kish Mauve, Black Heart is my new favorite CD.  I heard a song on Gossip Girl, googled the lyrics on my G1 and voila.  New fave CD.  Its not out on a CD yet but you can download the MP3s from Amazon.  “I’m in Love with your Rock and Roll” is playing when Serena and Nate walk in to the card game.
“In my Kitchen” is an uppity poppy song that reminds me of Shakespeare’s Sister.  It kind of reminds me of “Walking on Sunshine,” its fun and makes me think of Kirstie Alley bopping around her kitchen on Look Who’s Talking.
 “Morphine” has lyrics that say “I just wanna get happy….”  How relatable is that.  Follwed by “How can I get rid of you, when you look so good with me.”  I would have to say though my fave line is…  “I am like a stranger walking through my head…”  While I would rather be a stranger in Tim Burton’s head, my own isn’t that bad either.
 “Kish Mauve is a British electropop group. The group was formed in 2005 in London, England, and consists of Mima Stilwell (vocals) and Jim Eliot (synthesizer, vocals). In 2007, the duo wrote and produced Kylie Minogue's cover version of their song "2 Hearts", which reached number one in Australia and number four in the United Kingdom. Kish Mauve released their debut album, Black Heart, in March 2009. Kish Mauve's music has been featured in multiple television shows and advertisements. Several of their songs appeared on the United States television series Dirty Sexy Money, the song "Can't Get Enough" was featured in a Rimmel commercial, and Dell used their version of "2 Hearts" in a computer advertisement.”
The whole album has Killers undertones, which I love.  There’s a little vibe of Ashlee Simpson’s first CD in there too.  You should all give it a listen.

The Blonde Bandit works at a store which sells "candy flavored" products.  Its Lush, like face wash and stuff so don't get all pervy on me.  Anyway they were having a Halloween sale on all Candy products and were told to "dress like candy."  How the F do you dress like candy?  Apparently this is how....

Nice work on the stealth mode picture.  However, my only thought is after seeing this I am never eating candy again.  Happy trick-or-treating?


Good afternoon!  Had a great weekend and last night with my friends.  They really are the most amazing people.  I think this past week's Grey's was the most intense ever.  I loved it.  Almost as my as I love watching it weekly with my bf!  Today I am off to the zoo to go trick or treating.  If I see a bunch of little kids dressed as princesses and happy things I might puke.  My little one will representing as a dragon (the bat was sold out), and I will be wearing my obligatory all black.  I hope to return from my days with lots of fun, or at least interesting stories.  I know the tree friends have some awesome guest bloggers and series coming up, so be sure to check back often.  Also... check out the Facebook fanpage if you haven't already!!!!

How funny was that balloon boy hoax?  Ok not funny, I was really worried and sad for the family.  But at the end of it all, it just turned into a joke.  I am very glad the boy is ok!  People will do crazy stuff to get “famous”  aka… fake famous. 
“Police seek associate in alleged balloon hoax 
An associate of the father accused of carrying out the now-infamous balloon boy ordeal to promote a reality TV show was wanted for questioning after e-mails surfaced.”

Here’s the funniest thing I have seen come out of this to date….  Its from, a site for all of the lame (and funny) stuff people post on facebook.


         First off I know I still owe ya one from the Phils game, but it’s been a long hard recovery road on that one.  So lets fast forward to last night...

         It was a ladies night here so we started off the night right with Blood Orange margs at El Vez. Oh and Surf and Turf tacos, and Salsa Mexicana, but besides the point. For those of you who don’t know I am obsessed with Stephen Starr Restaurants, especially El Vez.  Us tree friends make it a point to go for brunch everytime we are together in the city.  We love you El Vez.

         So after a few there we head over to this new club called Sumo.  Its attached to a sushi bar called Raw.  The place itself was really cool, there were sumo wrestlers painted on the walls (in a trendy modern way, not a cheesy way, if you can believe that).  There was a chandelier that I loved and want in my new bedroom.  Its like the one on the blog!

         So we are basically the first ones there because our friend knows the guy who is throwing the party.  Its cool though we drink some crazy Asian restaurant specialities like Silk Kimonos and Lady Dragons.  We camp out at a table before the crowd rushes in. 

         The UO walks in and seriously finds a guy with a ponytail, like immediately.  This is funny because this may have been her internal goal.  It turned out he went to high school with my cousin.  Small world.  With him came this other guy who I have known for years.  He is my cousin’s family friend.  He was totally hitting on the UO, then me before I said I know you.  I have like known you for years.  Seriously I have seen this guy at least once a year for the past 15 years.  Our families have vacationed together.  He is all oh sorry I am so messed up and proceeds to go creep on other girls.  Phew!

         There are these guidos there in there matching Ed Hardy shirts.  They are dancing in the mirror.  Like dancing and watching themselves in the mirror.  For real dudes? So lame but funny.  We of course decide to heckle them.  They think this is our mating call and come over and ask us to dance.  Hell no.  But instead, I will video you and laugh about it later.  So I do.  They guy thinks I am trying to take a photo and comes over and poses.  This makes everything so much more funny.   He is posing for the video.  My friends encourage this.  “You look so sexy, oh yeah that’s hot, keep it coming” were some quotes from the video. 

         It was a party for this website that is called  It has really funny stories and blogs from writers.  This will explain my next story about the musical chair.  One I read really made me laugh.  Its written by this guy Ryan, who I have yet to meet, but I am determined to.  Here’s my favorite quote: “After popping the cork and mixing a few anonymous narcotics with my vino, I was beginning to get sloppier than a threesome involving Lindsay Lohan, Courtney Love, and an 8-ball of blow.”  If you want to read the whole post check it out at:

            So this party a pretty cool concept, in order to get people to interact with each other, they have printed monopoly money that you can use to buy drinks for members of the opposite sex.  I of course use this as an excuse to not get up off the couch.  Like, ever.  But that’s fine, they came to us.  The seat in front of the UO was basically a musical chair for the worlds biggest toolbags to rotate though and make petty attempts at getting us to dance.  No way amd I moving.  You are “boringgggg” says one guy.  My response, “well you are ugly.”  Go away Gotti wannabe, I think you are giving me swine flu.  I probably seemed like the bitter ugly friend at this point making a mockery of every attempt every guy made at her, but we were trapped.  Its not like they walked up to us at a bar and tried to talk to us, they basically had us cornered.  And I am not friendly to outsiders.  Get out of my bubble.  So finally it was time to give up and go home.  But mission go out and have fun was successful.  I look forward to the next one…. xox

If anyone knows anything about me, they know that I love wine.  Daily, that is.  I love any and all types of wine.  I love cheap wine, red wine, white wine, really cheap wine, and rich people wine when I can get my hands on it.  I prefer red wine, but white wine and I had a good year of bonding time while living in Boston.  This came about as a request from SH (who then was only Super Fiance).  I was drinking too much red wine and spilling it on basically a nightly basis.  The causalities were usually my clothes, our couch, and bed.  SH wasn't really down with sleeping on wine stained sheets.  So, I was forcibly limited to white wine only.  This way the couch only smelled like wine, but it was invisible.  Magic!  Since moving away from Boston, me and Mr. Red couldn't stay apart for long, so we have rekindled our flame.  SH has just accepted this life long affair.  This has now posed another problem.  GNATS.  I hate them.  They invade my space and every single wine glass and bottle that I open.  Don't get me wrong, I still drink the wine.  I just have to fish them out with a spoon before hand, which is rather time consuming, and wastes at least a table spoon of wine per glass.  This will not fly (haha).  I find these little suckers flying around like they own the place.  I tell them to find a nice neighbor with rotten fruit or something of the sort, but they will not be deterred.  This gnat situation isn't helping the fact that SH already thinks I over indulge with the grown up grape juice.  This must end!  I googled how to get rid of gnats, and one little smart ass website told me to stop drinking red wine.  NO!  You can't tell me what to do.  I discovered "vinegar traps."  Death traps!  I am supposed to fill up a jar with vinegar and poke tiny holes in the lid.  The g-nats are attracted to the vinegar and fly in the holes and can't get out.  I hope the gnats haven't become smarter from their freeloading wine tastings.   I will be delving further into these death traps tomorrow.  I will keep you posted on The Adventures of the Gnat Rebellion.  Cheers!


I found these during one my random web surfing sessions.  They are freaking cool as pie.  Check, check, check it out....

Just thought I would share my findings!!  I love them, so should you.  You can gander at the rest of the magnificent creatures by clicking here....

An Update/Venting Session About My Cat Lady Neighbor...

If you think back about a month and a half ago, I told you about my sketch, porch sleeping neighbors moving out in the middle of the night and how the cat lady took their place....

(This is the absolute PERFECT image)

Well, this is just a quick update on the neighbor situation. She is one strange mammal. First of all, shortly after her moving in I realize that we have no hot water, due to the fact that this is an old school duplex that shares a water heater, and she had no gas turned on due to lack of payment. Awesome. I see her outside one day and she informs me that she has an outstanding balance with Texas Gas Service, and won't be able to pay. WTF. OK, it happens. I call my landlord and he takes care of the problem. He did not sound happy about the new tenant. He is an old man who is very trusting, and I think realized that he should have checked this lady out before hand. I agree. Next we start to see random items piling up in the front yard. Lots of them. Each day there is something new, for example an empty fish tank and then a children's chalk board easel. Almost like an ongoing yard sale. Awesome.

(This is basically our adjoining front yard)

I let it go, thinking that the moving process is going slow. A few days later she knocks on my door and asks if she can borrow my keys to charge her cell in my car. I go out with her to supervise. The small talk starts and she says "I have to go do some work on Friday Night Lights tonight (Friday Night Lights is a TV show they film locally)." I am thinking, cool... maybe she is some sort of production personnel. It turns out that she doesn't work and she was going to be an extra on the set. Ok, weird, but these are hard times and jobs are scarce. I am trying to give her the benefit of the doubt, but things are just getting weirder and weirder. She also informs me that she is nocturnal and stays up all night, every night. Ok. During the following weeks she comes to our door a couple of times complaining that our TV is too loud. This was at 7:00 pm on a Saturday. Strange for a "nocturnal" human. Annoying. We had a baby living next door before you, and the baby never complained about anything. Ugh, I want the baby and the porch sleeping neighbors back. This cat lady is bothering me. Next, we find a pair of her panties in the driveway. What is going on here? Totally uncalled for. So weird. Two nights later, I guess she didn't want any of our friends parking in her parking spot, which exists for her non existent car, so she lays her bicycle down in the driveway to mark her territory I suppose. Then comes last night when SH and I are getting ready to go to bed and all we can hear is Cat Lady walking around our house calling for her cats. She then walks up and down the street calling their names. All the while, I look out of the window and spot one of her cats....hiding from her. I don't think he wants to go home. This goes on for a good 20 minutes. All I could think, was "of course we can't get some bad ass neighbors that we like. We get the cat lady." The yard is still a mess and the panties are still in the driveway. This is my life.

Today is Pajama Friday.  Its my favorite day of the week. Every Friday we have Pajama Friday, I didn’t actually realize how important this was until my baby daddy said, Avery we need to put your skull pajamas on since tomorrow is pajama Friday.  These are my personal faves, because we usually don’t leave the house on PJ Fridays, but if we do, I really like Avery to be wearing this certain pair of pjs.    They are black and from Old Navy.  Props, Old Navy.  I think it’s a Halloween costume.  It’s a skeleton with a heart on it.  The best part, it glows in the dark.  It is amazing and I am going to go get another pair for when he grows out of it. 


The genius that is Tim Burton has been honored with an Expo at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.  He has captured the hearts and minds of all of us that love dark, creepy, and just plain weird entertainment.  We love you Tim Burton!!!  You are amazing!  We want to crawl into that strange head of yours and just look around for a bit.  If any you are in the vicinity, this will be something to remember I'm sure...

Tim Burton

November 22, 2009–April 26, 2010
Theater 1 Gallery
Theater 2 Gallery
Special Exhibitions Gallery, third floor
Museum Lobby

This major career retrospective on Tim Burton (American, b. 1958), consisting of a gallery exhibition and a film series, considers Burton's career as a director, producer, writer, and concept artist for live-action and animated films, along with his work as a fiction writer, photographer and illustrator. Following the current of his visual imagination from his earliest childhood drawing through his mature work, the exhibition presents artwork generated during the conception and production of his films, and highlights a number of unrealized projects and never-before-seen pieces, as well as student art, his earliest non-professional films, and examples of his work as a storyteller and graphic artist for non-film projects. The opposing themes of adolescence and adulthood, and the elements of sentiment, cynicism, and humor inform his work in a variety of mediums—drawings, paintings, storyboards, digital and moving-image formats, puppets and maquettes, props, costumes, ephemera, sketchbooks, and cartoons. Taking inspiration from sources in pop culture, Burton has reinvented Hollywood genre filmmaking as a spiritual experience, influencing a generation of young artists working in film, video, and graphics.
