Why???

Why is the universe trying to put a wrench in my eventual plans to transform into Larry David??  It's inevitable, so the universe should just let nature take its course.

Case in point:  Saw these ugly ass Simple Shoes / runners / what have you, in MY size.  (This is almost an unheard of scenario!)  I think to myself, "No one's gonna buy these shoes.  They're ugly.  AND they're small, so who's gonna fit 'em anyway??" 

Well, apparently I was wrong.  Someone obviously had the same size AND the same penchant for ugly footwear.  :(  

Maybe the universe has plans for someone else to become Larry David instead??

That oughta shut
her up!

From time to time, I like to check in on certain people.  You know, see what they're up to, randomly say, "Hi", 'n stuff like that.  Not to be a bitch, but 'cause these are people who I genuinely like and would like to stay in touch with.  4 realz.

Anyway, I've checked in on [blank] a few times and at least the last 2 messages of mine have been completely ignored, re:  no response.  And recently, I tried again and asked [blank] how + what s/he was doing now.

S/he response?  Day trading.  

What other answers to the dreaded, "What do you do for a living?" basically shuts up the asker??  The only examples that I could think of are mother + lifestyle blogger.

Stop!
Stubbs & Wootton Time!

Today, I wore my S&W for the first time this year. We're making some progress in the weather dept.

Let's see how long this can go on for and whether or not it's safe to put away those parkas, sweaters, & Sorels.  :(

Jason: Who's booty would actually need explainin'? 

2 Chainz: Can you translate the following...

Dos Cadenas, close to genius 
Sold out arenas, you can suck my penis

Chest to chest, tongue on neck 
International oral sex

Bought a jet, what do you expect?

Got her saved in my phone under "Big Booty"

Superga, the answer to
Converse?

Ok, I'm well aware that these looks more or less like Keds. I've never own Keds, but what I think would make them uncomfortable is that there is a very thin layer between your foot vs. the concrete.

Converse, on the other hand, offers a bit more protection/shock absorption, BUT there is absolutely no arch support in these shoes.  Plus, I find them more suitable for people with feet that are more on the normal-slightly narrow side.  If your feet are even a bit wide, like mine, you'll definitely feel the pinch.  It's very uncomfortable.

I used to wear Converse A LOT in high school, sans socks, and they never bothered me, but now, I'm down to my last pair which I'll probably end up donating.  Whenever I wear them, my feet get fatigued very quickly.

Anyway, is Superga (Italy, but I think they're made in Vietnam) the answer to a casual pair of flats, but not ballet flats, or Converse?  I hope so 'cause I can only wear heels for so long!

I'm eyeing this Hawaiian pattern...
Or any of the non-white/black/pastel (puke) coloured ones are fine too.

rehabs.com

is the new "Faces of Meth".  And I didn't even post up the most graphic case either!

This link from Nancy Grace almost made me pick up the phone, call my cable provider, and order HLN.

Dress
Pants

This morning I had to put on a pair of dress pants and they were:  
1) too baggy 'n BIG - yeah! - and 
2) out of style, at least the cut, see above.  Ok, not as bad as the houser pants above, but wide leg does not work on me!

I am at a complete loss when it comes to adult, dress-up clothes that aren't ballgowns, cocktail dresses, or even tuxedos.  Totally extreme ends of the spectrum, I know.

What I do know is that I want to get a tailored suit...for women à la...


but without looking like this
this (or worse, butchier)
or this (although not completely terrible!)

Just because...
doesn't mean

file under: local-ish news

Just because you are a middle-aged Chinese woman in your late-50s, doesn't mean your contemporaries, re: other middle-aged Chinese women in their late-50s, will vote for you.  

Two separate contemporaries that I spoke to of Olivia Chow's, one of the candidates running for TO mayor, adamantly said that they would NOT vote for Chow.  In fact, and this is sorta scary, they both said that they would vote for Rob Ford!

Thank God these women also both live in the 'burbs.  Non-GTA 'burbs.

Did this guy put
my hometown on the map??

Shout-out to Mitchell Casado who was placed front 'n centre, on CNN, during the height of the phantom Malaysian Airlines flight MH370.

Note:  I found it odd when CNN first used, "Mississauga, Canada" to quote the location.  Broad.  Much, much too broad.  That's like saying, "New York, USA".  Thank God they finally made it a bit more accurate.

Coldplay's
"Magic"

I don't want to gloat for someone's bad news - actually, it depends on who that someone is - but I am happy that this happened...



NEVER EVER liked Gwyneth Paltrow, not even during her Shakespeare In Love hype.  Bland, plain lookin', and cardboard acting actress.  And in recent years with GOOP (or whatever it's called), she has just further proven her vileness by suggesting things like a "must-have" Spring wardrobe...for just $450 000!

Anyway, Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin is better off without her bony ass!  Plus, after hearing "Magic", I am looking forward to their new album.  Can this finally be their return?

Following a breakup there's usually a period of creating really.  great.  art.  ;)

'Ghost Stories', their new album, will be released on May 19th.

Back in love
with kitsch!

Before I knew was mid century modern was, there was kitsch.  However, as anyone with a grandma knows, a "collection" of kitsch can be gaudy/tacky, and yes, even a bit (or a lot) hoardy!

Anyway, if you like this sort of thing, check out El Gato Gomez, a contemporary artist doing retro art!

Girrrl, Get Yo'
Mind Right!

Speaking of MTV shows, can I be Tionna Smalls...for at least a day?

I couldn't find an actual trailer, just a link via MTV - why are they soo stinge on the clips?  So here's a gist of what this show is all about!

Basically, tell-it-like-it-is author, Tionna Smalls helps insecure girls with their issues, whether that be having no confidence, swag, or other know-how of how to be a girl that guys actually want.

The only problem I have with the show is that Tionna "Tionna-fies" the subjects waaay too much, whether that be wearin' ridiculous 4" platforms - waaay-too-tight bodycon dresses on regular, non-occasion days.  Do guys really want that??

The return of
MTV's "Friendzone"!

I'm probably the only person over 30, or even 20, watching "Friendzone", but whatever!  I enjoy it, I'm not gonna lie.

I dunno if this is a new season or what, but it's certainly new to me!

What I've learned from the show is that if you're a chick crushing on your best guy bud, chances are REALLY HIGH that feelings will be mutual...at least according to the show.  Actually, reciprocal feelings seem quite high for reversed gender as well, re:  if guy professes his like/love to a girl friend.  Although, sometimes it takes the girl a coupla weeks to "think about it".

Confession:  So far, at least in Season 4, no eps have left me with a dry eye.
