This Barbie Comes with a Paycheck

Written by , Posted in fitness, friends, running

Thanks to all of you who’ve emailed in our absence (MSI, Dr. Love:  shout out).   It’s really such a bore when one’s real job interferes with our blogging time.  We’re never able to be the chefs, fashionistas, writers, pop culture connoisseurs, or friends that we want to be.   Thank you for your patience.  This Barbie can’t always blog, but this Barbie comes with a paycheck.*

One thing we have been doing?  Running the SAV half with great friends!  Check out some photos and our latest running mix.  More posting to come soon.

*Yes, we’ve been waiting to write a blog post with that title since we heard the phrase.

Dining in Memphis

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

Fun to see Reader ct and Molly Moore in Memphis!  Loved Andrew Michael (chosen after I saw it profiled on the food channel) and enjoyed Five Spot featured here.  Not the best food ever but sort of a novelty to be in a reformed brothel.

Oysterfest ’11

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

Someone forgot to tell us that we aren’t 21.  Oops.  But no worries, at least I’m still wearing a J.Crew cardigan and shell combo.

Destination Wedding Checklist

Written by , Posted in travel

List of Clues for Determining Whether of Not You’ve Just Attended a Successful Wedding Weekend:

  • A new pair of shoes ruined
  • A heightened pull to facebook
  • A Sunday lunch inexplicable craving for poolside grilled cheese with ketchup
  • A Monday morning inexplicable desire to listen to Lionel Richie’s “All Night Long” on repeat
  • “Emily and Britt” headbands and koozies still appearing in different bag pockets
  • An ongoing internal lecture about how 27 year olds SHOULD NOT LET THEMSELVES GET SUNBURNED
  • An appreciation for the rare bringing together family, hometown friends, and post-hometown life friends
  • A pang in your heart for Columbus, GA
  • One cell phone lost, and found

Thank You Reader Melby

Written by , Posted in quotations

Quotation #1

“We both shop at the J.Crew sales rack, and it’s catching up to us.” - Reader Melby, on seeing elaney show up in the unmistakably same coral J.Crew cardigan she was wearing

Quotation #2

Reader Melby:  “You should like that guy.”
elaney:  “Sure, but why don’t you like him?”
Reader Melby:  “Oh trust me, I would, if he had any sort of physical attraction to me.  I basically showed him my boob trying to get him to like me.”

Quotation #3

elaney (laughing hysterically):  “You are so funny.  You are the funniest girl I know.  Are you this funny around guys?”
Reader Melby: “Absolutely not, guys don’t understand anything I say.  They just look at me with blank stares.”
elaney:  “Yeah, you are pretty girl funny.  Maybe you could try to work it in a little more though.”  [Then remembering all that had been said...]  “On second thought, maybe not.”

The Beginning of "Friends"

Written by , Posted in television

At the end of our favorite show, the cast and creators of Friends did a series of interviews about the concept for the series. Here are a few comments from their conversation:

Matt Lauer: “The story goes that you became a little nostalgic and you start to think about what it was like to get out of college and be in New York, and some light bulb went on.”

Marta Kauffman: “We were looking at a time when the future was more of a question mark. Maybe because that’s what we were feeling at the moment, but looking at that question mark and going: that’s interesting. Everybody knows that feeling.”

Lauer: “Let me read you from the original treatment, the pitch, OK? “It’s about love, relationships, careers, a time in your life when everything’s possible. And it’s about friendship because when you’re single and in the city, your friends are your family.”
