the little pink plus sign is so unholy

Between the two of us, Pammie and I know eighteen* girls who got knocked up last year. Eighteen*. Can we all just take a second to acknowledge how ridiculously high that number is? It’s only January, and I’ve already been invited to three baby showers. We’ve clearly been using the iPeriod app for different reasons.

*Update: Nineteen (damn it, Belle!)

Some people pass through your life and you never think about them again. Some you think about and wonder what ever happened to them. Some you wonder if they ever wonder what happened to you. And then there are some you wish you never had to think about again. But you do.

spartacus workout

When Arlene told me that we were going to do the “Spartacus” workout tonight, I expected there to be blood and sand.

This was worse.

shi text message

I’m pretty sure Arlene tried to kill us last night.

The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd; the longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; regret over not being someone else; dissatisfaction with the world’s existence. All these half-tones of the soul’s consciousness create in us a painful landscape, an eternal sunset of what we are.

mitchell and the girls

Most of E’s party was spent trying to keep Vince’s baby from crying while resisting the urge to go back to the taco truck for seconds. I didn’t succeed at either.

Puppy love.

corgies on a treadmill

I don’t look half this cute when I’m pounding the treadmill.

My friend, Arlene, has given birth to four kids (including twins!) in the past decade, but you’d never be able to tell by looking at her. When she offered to whip my ass into shape this past weekend, I was at my ex’s sister’s wedding, surrounded by my ex’s entire family, and taking advantage of the open bar. And maybe the mini donut vendor, too. Clearly, I was at my most vulnerable when I agreed to let her train me!

We had our first boot camp session last night, and I feel lighter already. But that might be because I threw up during our workout. Three times.

Bitch doesn’t fuck around.

The girls and I went to Hawaii a few years ago, and Chris, the parasailing instructor from Seabreeze Water Sports, was the highlight of my trip! Christine vacationed in Hawaii this past weekend and Chris was still there. And still hot. And still half naked. He literally charmed her panties off. Just kidding. (It was a bathing suit bottom!)

When are we going back?!

You heard of Lago de Luz? At night, the algae lights up… looks like millions of fireflies trapped just underneath the water… flapping their wings, trying to break free. It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen. Beautiful.

– Off the Map

I want to go to there.

My fave performance of the night! 30 Seconds to Mars is easily one of the top five bands I’ve seen live.

ra sushi and 30 seconds to mars

Things I loved about my birthday:

  • Sushi at Ra
  • 30 Seconds to Mars show with the girls
  • Celebrating my 29th with Christine’s 30th!
  • The 188.9 miles Pammie drove to spend my birthday with me
  • Jessie remembering that I don’t like buttercream frosting
  • The laptop desk that Shi and Chel gave me (and the way its microsuede cushion feels on my bare thighs)
  • The 1×2" MS Paint printout of my gelaskin that’s arriving in the mail
  • The lotto scratchers that Jay gave me and the whopping $14 I won off of them
  • The Amazon gift card that Jessie and Christine gave me and the four pounds of protein powder I bought with it
  • The dominant homeless woman on 5th Avenue
  • The voice mail from my favorite Mexicans singing me happy birthday
  • Shi singing “Viva Las Vegas”
  • Officer Dick

One year left in my twenties, ya’ll. Hope it’s a good one!

This is fulfilling some weird fantasy for me.

Ellen: [About him and Michelle Williams] I like you individually, I like you as a couple, I don’t know if you guys are a couple, you’re being cagey about it, I know that. If you’re a couple I’m all for it. Wait, you’re pedaling faster, what’s happening?
Ryan: I’m trying to get away from this conversation.

You and Me.

blue valentine - ryan gosling and michelle williams

Penny & The Quarters – You and Me
[audio: and the Quarters – You and Me.mp3]

I started my birthday week how I usually do—with a good cry and a hot bearded fellow (in this case, Ryan Gosling).

Blue Valentine.

Can’t wait to watch Blue Valentine tonight with the girls!

Shirley: You don’t have a bag?
Jeff: I could never deprive the world of the portion of my chest the strap would cover.

Fuck, I love me some Joel McHale ♥

my parents

Happy anniversary from someone who knows more about the inner workings of your marriage than any third party should.

I would not be mad if this kid fell out of my uterus. If watching this video doesn’t fill your heart with joy, then you are dead to me.

Happy New Year!
