Im a jerk

I got back to work today to find a few gifts from co-workers at my desk. Now I know you're not suppossed to look a gift horse in the mouth or something but..

I got this as a gift:


It's so not me. I've never been one to carry engraved keychains with pictures of loved ones. There's space for 6 pictures. I have 2 problems with that feature:

1. There aren't 6 people in the world I like enough to carry around pictures of.

2. How do you get pictuers that tiny to fit into it?

So yeah I'm a jerk, but I hate this key chain.

RIP H to the Izzo Part II

A few weeks ago H to the Izzo was lost to a tragic subway incident. He is survived by H to the Izzo Part I (who is currently in critical condition).

I was going insane (literally) with out any music in my life. I mean NPR is great, but nothing can replace a little JT bringing the sexy back. Thankfully Sarah Ho shares (unlike me) and gifted to me H to the Izzo Part III. I just loaded him up with some tunes and I can not wait for my commute home (I can begin ignoring all humans again).

Viva la H to the Izzo!

Do not read if..

You can not resist cute Japanese useless junk.

I made the mistake of clicking from this article:

to this website:

and it was all over. All the sudden I found myself wondering how I've lived to be 30 years old with out ever owning:


He is Nittle Chin and he speaks to you. I have no idea how big or little Nittle is or what he says. All I know is that he only costs $13.73 plus shipping and handling.

Also I've discovered:


The discription for this was:

"You make your ariginal animals (boys?) by getting together the other parts! All 7 types and 1 secret, you can enjoy new figure world!"

Seriously there's a secret. I must own all 7 and unlock the ariginal secret!! And each one is only $4.71. It's almost free.

Best Wedding Ever

This past weekend I went to the best wedding I've ever attended. It was such a stark contrast to the last wedding I went to where the groom came to the table drunk and went on and on about how he wasn't allowed to invite his friends and he really didn't want to be married.

This wedding you could clearly see how in love the couple was. Everyone had such touching stories about the bride and groom. They said their vows just as the sun was setting behind them over the NYC skyline. It couldn't have been more perfect. I don't think I've ever been so teary eyed!

See pictures below for the pictorial story of the Benelle wedding (Ben & Danelle):

save the Date. can it be any more adorable?

Seating assignments. Subway style.

Cate's famous cupcakes. Subway style.

View of the skyline as seen from DUMBO

Name cards. J-Ho. I loved them.

First Dance.

End of the night. Well almost the end of the night..

Holiday Party

Every year my company throws an over the top Holiday Party. Last year my sister said she felt like she was at the Emmys. I'm not really into it because they require us to dress up. If they threw like a jeans and beer party I'd be all for it. And the wives are there which makes it not as fun. You can't get wasted and have inappropriate makeouts and/or flirtations. Either way I plan on sending out a memo to my office faves that says:

According to New York Magazine if you're looking for the next new place to live it's:


That's right. They say forget Brooklyn, as a matter of fact forget New York City all together. Move to Buffalo now before the gentrification takes over and makes it took expensive. I'm going to hold off and wait for global warming to kick in. The snow scares me.

Douche with Lysol

Really Lysol can clean your vag and save your marriage? If that's the case I vote for dirty vag and being single.

Maybe things are different in Italy

I work with this gentleman who is from Italy. He is uber high maintenance. On top of this sometimes he has the most odd requests. Like this one I just received:

Quick question: the brother of a client passed away. Do you have a sample note I could use or maybe suggest two lines?
Do you say something like....
I was just told from Dave about the major loss you had in your family.
My deepest condolence to you and your family.

Do I have a sample note? Hmm, let me look in my files labeled "sample notes for death". Dude I have a hard enough time coming up with something to say off the top of my head, let alone coming up with things for you to say. My suggestion is just ignore it. That's what I do. Or you could go to and use something like this:

When Bosses are awesome

Ok so a while back I posted about my mid-year bonus. Basically what happened is our Company told us we weren't getting our bonuses when we thought we were getting them. In turn my boss cut me a personal check and gave me my bonus early. The deal was when the company paid us I'd just repay her. Well the Firm funally gave us our bonuses and I cut her a check. I mailed it to her with a Thank You note on a post-it (because that's how working professionals communicate). Anyways like 3 weeks have gone by and she didn't cash it. This morning I get a email from her saying to call her in the morning "in regards to the check". I knew for sure it didn't bounce because I've been SUPER careful about my spending and keeping that money in my account. I'd die if a check to her bounced.

Anyways I was so worried about why we had to have a call about it. And our call got delayed until 5:30pm. All day I kept thinking "why do we need a call?". So finally she calls me and her husband is on the call. I though WHOA this is no joke. So after ALL of that she tells me she is ripping up the check as an early birthday present. Wow, my mom doesn't even give me that much for my birthday. I kinda wanted to ask her to adopt me, but I didn't feel the time was right. Maybe next time I have a conf call with her and her husband I'll bring it up..

The long anticipated album Blackout drops today. And by long anticipated I mean I learned that its release is today because Circuit City is selling it for $8. This brings me to my question. Do I buy it? I've listened to it thanks to and my jobs internet connection. It's ok for the most part- some a lot of songs are awful. But it's only $8 and its good dancy music, in case I ever have a dance party in my shoe box apartment and need some dancy music action.

On a totally different note my mom asked me for a christmas list. I asked for the pig. She didn't seem really into it. Her reasoning was "But you don't collect pigs". Well maybe I do now mom! I want that damn pig.
