For days like those, these would really come in handy.

Me: -hears the mailman- The mail's here. I shall go get it! -squeals at sight of Urban Outfitters package-
Mom: Is there anything good?
Me: Um...nope...no...not at all. Nothing. Just a Dr. Leonard's* catalogue and some bills.
Mom: What's in that box?
Me: Bagels with lox? That sounds great!
Me:What? -smuggles box-
*seriously, if you know what this is, can we be lifelong friends?
And speaking of birthdays, I am now the proud owner of a Canon Powershot randomnumbersidonotbothertoacknowledge. That, too, was unable to be kidnapped despite my best efforts with the awkward Best Buy kid. You'll just have to wait until December for this blog to become slightly less lame.

I can't figure out how to copy the picture with all the record covers (if you know how, please share). Until then, let's admire flickr user iirraa's triple decker pb&j, shall we?
Quirky & Co. Playlist 1
Judy is a Punk - The Ramones
Dancing With Myself - Nouvelle Vague
Oxford Comma - Vampire Weekend
Immigrant Song - Led Zeppelin
Sympathique - Pink Martini
Manhattan - Ella Fitzgerald
Wild Horses - The Rolling Stones
Funny Face - Ella Fitzgerald
Kiss Off - Violent Femmes
Mrs. Robinson - Simon & Garfunkel
I Feel It All - Feist

My Brain Is Hanging Upside Down - The Ramones
Yes, it's a bit random. I have no extraordinary music discovery skills. Please enjoy.
*Whenever teachers tell us that every single exam is vital to our future, I appease myself with dreams of being discovered in a book store and then becoming a supermodel. The fact that I have no idea where the golgi apparatus is won't matter then, now will it?

I find it to be no coincidence (seriously, I get mail like once a decade) that I just so happened to come home to find a Delias catalog in the mail that included many pairs I want. Badly. I thought "Who still shops at Delias? It's such a tacky teenybopper store." Apparently, I should be shopping at Delias.
Clockwise from right, Charlotte $39.50, Doc Martens $110.50, Tabitha $39.50,Lissa $39.50
Thankfully, you can afford to buy these without being indicted.

"Next, just add 6 sticks of butter and 3 cups of bacon drippings! Pop it in the oven and then pour some chocolate on top. How gorgeous is that?" Hearts.
Oh and, in case I haven't said it 12 times before, my camera has taken a one-way ticket to Deadsville (one way ticket to Deadsville? I need to get out more) . We all know a blog without a camera is like a book without pages (I cannot fathom how deep I am). After pestering my parents and preparing them elaborate meatloaf and chocolate cake dinners, they have agreed to buy me a camera for my birthday.
So, you're wondering, why should I care? This means that in one short month there will be awkward photo shoots, failed DIY projects, and baked goods galore around here. Stay tuned.

Darn you, Kenley. I want to hate you, but this is so so so cute.
10:00-10:08: "OMG TODAY IS THE BIG DAY. BRYANT PARK IS MY DREAM. -TEARS-"
10:10-10:20: A model will not show up. Someone will have an emotional breakdown. Tim Gunn will make everything better. The model shows up, albeit extremely hungover. Everyone is happy.
10:25- 10:27: Heidi Klum spiels in a miniskirt.
10:30-10:45: We finally see the clothes.
10: 45- 10:57: "Impeccable taste blah blah blah slutty slutty blah blah blah ..." -Michael Kors
*We tune in*
10:59: The winner is announced (TEAM LEANNE) and I am finally free from the most uninspiring season yet. Phew.
So, please, do yourselves a favor and tune into the Presidential Debate instead. Or, if you want to really shake things up, the Phillies vs. Dodgers game. Yes, even a baseball game amuses me more than this season.

But, alas, my photographic friend has faced one too many frightening encounters with bowls of cake batter (please, don't ask). No worries, folks, my handy dandy pack of 25 Sharpies and ancient scanner are here to save the day! Look, I even managed to capture the awkward pose!
P.S. Supertalent Courtney from Shopaholic Chic achieved Maharishi t-shirt DIY success! If my procrastination does not get the best of me, I'll attempt my own version soon.
P.S.S. (or is it P.P.S?) My thoughts on last weeks Project Runway: YOU DO NOT MESS WITH TIM GUNN, KENLEY. WATCH YOUR BACK.

Let me tell you, I'm pretty certain who is going to win that I'd bet a pan of Nutella brownies (heads up, I'm going to attempt to create these in the coming weeks) over it. Yep.
*I'm not quite sure why the episode was called this, because Joe is out,maybe? But he is, certainly, no daisy. No, no, he is more like a dandelion, and not even in the cute "Aww, look at the dandelion!" way, more like the "Why have you lasted so long in my yard, even though you deserved to be weeded weeks ago?" sort of way.

I have come to realize the fact that I am a cold, heartless person. Why,dear reader, you may ask? Well it goes a little something like this:

1. American Apparel Striped Cardigan. Even though your ads often times resemble something you might find in a publication hidden underneath a pubescent boy's bed (AHEM.WINK,WINK. COUGH,COUGH), American Apparel, I will not hesitate to hand over my hard earned $44 dollars for this cardigan. It's just that perfect.
3. Old Navy Turquoise Patent Belt. Not only is this belt pretty and affordable, it kind of reminds me of the blue Fruit Rollups (and anyone worth knowing will tell you the blue Fruit Rollups are the best kind).

Or, most likely, you're thinking "Hmm, she hasn't posted a Project Runway Recap in a while...oh boy, I never realized how many bagel crumbs there are on my keyboard...crap, I forgot to return Definitely, Maybe to Blockbuster..."
I'm suffering a mild case of the Project Runway blues, so I thought I'd take a little break from the recaps. Don't fret though, here is an absolutely hilarious recap for those of you who missed it. Now that Keith and his annoying feel-sorry-for-me-I-live-in-Utah attitude are gone, I might be able to return next week with my most vibrant recap ever.
P.S. Tim Gunn recently described Miley Cyrus' style as "too tarty." Yet another reason why we love you, Tim (No, I do not read Page Six all day. I found this on the Best Week Ever Blog, thank you very much).

I would just like to be put on the record as the first person to document this fact.
I'm wondering if this is an attempt to direct our attention towards her, because, if so, it's working. She is grabbing our attention like a neon traffic cone. "Stop, look at me. I will go about saying I'm all for Obama, but the truth is I want you all to look at me in all of my shiny, orange glory!"
Or maybe when Blayne mentioned creating a neon pantsuit for her a few weeks back on Project Runway, she took him up on it?
Or perhaps she's actually being a comedic genious and playing up the thousands of pantsuits remarks shes gained throughout her career? In which case, we applaud her.
Update:She just used the phrase "Sisterhood of The Traveling Pantsuits." We are dying. Dying.

been out for like ever? Hasn't she realized everyone has seen it? Oh, and has she not heard about this?"
