Okay here is what happened in NYC - TFMD was rolling with a homeless dude (nicely dressed for homeless) who handed out astrology maps of the stars for dollars. We lost Margeaux when a trannie on the L kidnapped her. She was later recovered on the Upper West Side having lost only her short term memory and her shoes. I earned cab fare by stripping. Howard Stern, so impressed with my moves, wants me to co-host his talk show.

Good times!

Quick things:

I taught myself how to embroider last night with my super cool sublime stitching kit that i've wanted for like 3 years and finally bought on a whim when i saw it on the super sale cart at barnes and noble.

This site is great.

So, first let me apologize for my absence from blogging on this forum, despite the regularity with which I seem to blog on MySpace. I feel like MySpace blogging is more an exercise for writing where this is more keeping you all in on the happenings of my life, which has been not so great lately, but getting better. I have just been in a wierd mood lately. I blame the 'roids.

Yesterday I realized that I lost the Belding's car / house keys which they entrusted me with during their vacay.

Today I learned that my photos were not chosen for the juroried show.

Kinda bummin' in a self-loathing, very uncharacteristic way. On the other hand I'm super excited to go to NYC.

Few quick notes as I count down to 5:30....

Scarlett, As I mentioned before I do cook. In fact, on Thursday I made a fantabulous meal comprised of chicken with roasted lemons and rosemary sauce, risotto, steamed broccoli, and biscuits. Paired with a lovely wine, it made for a tasty dinner.

Um let's see...Friday what did I do? Oh! Hair cut and color. I feel much better about it now. I was beginning to dread going out without a hat because the roots were that bad.
Sat, went to the Bodies Exhibit. (http://www.bodiestheexhibition.com/)
It was interesting. I wasn't really sure what to expect. Some things were ok, some were pretty cool (arm's circulatory system), and some were really gross (skin exhibit). It's kind of hard to explain the actual exhibits. And at some points I forgot I was looking at actual bodies, as opposed to models.
It's there until Oct, so you have some time to get to it. Just another thing for you to add to your list Margaux.

That is all for now...I will blog more tomorrow about other random things.

Catharsis Part Deux. While i'm continuing my bitching i'd like to purge a little before i purge all over someone else. Mr Darcy's best man is in town this weekend. Some of you may have met him when he lived here for like 8 months before moving back to NY and now he lives in Ohio. Anyway his brother and his brother's friends live down here so he usually visits them and us (but mostly them which is understandable being brothers and all). SO he's visiting this weekend which is nice since we haven't seen him in awhile (maybe march?). We were supposed to do something tonight but when Mr. Darcy spoke to him earlier today he said he was going to his brother's practice space (brother and brother's friends used to be in a band which we saw many times [aside: this band was a "Scream-o" {emo + screaming} band so i basically wanted to slit my wrists by the end of the night. and not due to sappy emo content but due to deafness, soberness around the incredibly intoxicated, and having to endure shitty music while basically being ignored by the person we were there to see while he hung out with the band and talked about things we didn't know about... all night. everytime. end aside.] ANYWAY so that means that we weren't going to see him tonight which kind of sucked b/c i'm leaving early tomorrow morning but also great b/c i'm leaving ASS EARLY tomorrow morning.

SO fast forward to 8:45 when best man calls and says that they didn't end up going to practice space and are bouncing all around the f-ing dc area to go from gaithersburg to alexandria to vienna to do shit and we should do something after. Oook. This is where i tell myself- hey TFMD, be cool. so you stay up late and get 6 or less hours of sleep for the 3rd night in a row- it's good to see best man. OK. But then he calls back and apparently the plan now is to go to best man's brother's friends house and hang out there. Yeah because i totally want to haul my ass to virginia to hang out at your brother's friends house. So glad i already accepted. HEY and- um -maybe when you come to visit us in beantown we can go over to OJ's sisters house and hang out there and talk about things that you don't know about and music you don't listen to and shows you don't want and drink beer you don't care for! FUCKING AWESOME! So glad that YET AGAIN THIS IS HOW WE'RE SPENDING THE LIMITED TIME WE SEE YOU!!!! CANNOT WAIT!!!!!!

Hm. This catharsis isn't working. I'm just getting angrier. Turning... into... incredible hulk! Ok now that made me happy. And it's not that i don't like best man, best man's brother, or even best man's brother's married friends. All of the above are cool. It's just incredibly obvious that they spend 99% of the time when all of us are there talking about the snowboarding trips they've taken and thrash metal and other crap that not only do i not know about but i could give less than a shit about. :( boo.


OOooh if someone wants to call me between now and 1am to give me some reprieve go for it!

[Edited to add: so i was apparently totally wrong and this visit was completely unlike the previous 10 or so and we were included and i saw actual pandas from japan and we watched the most disturbing youtube videos (namely the music video "what what in my butt"- search for it if you dare) and generally had fun so.... yeah..... my bad. ok 3 hours of sleep- check! now must continue to get ready for my flight!]

And in retrospect all this self examination is girlie and I was told yesterday that I'm "on crack" but they meant it in the "nicest way possible"

Le sigh.

I don't have a whole heck of a lot to say that is actually important or significant but I don't really feel like working yet either. I'm also hoping this makes me look busy so I can accidentally forget about my 10:30 meeting that is a waste of my time to go to.

While avoiding work by reading Pink is the New Blog, I discovered that The Hills is scheduled to start again on August 13. I'm thrilled to know I'm not the only person over the age of 23 who watches this show. I love it. I can't get enough of it. I wish the girls were just a little smarter and said "like" just a little bit less but how can you not love the drama that is LC and Jason (when he's in the picture) and of course Heidi and Spencer. 1. Heidi is an idiot. I have no idea what she thinks she's actually going to do with the rest of her life. I suppose there's always plastic surgery to keep her from aging and I doubt she's above a Playboy spread. 2. Spencer is the biggest tool I've ever met. Even though I think Heidi is an idiot, give me a break, how can anyone even find Spencer attractive. His hair reminds me of one of the faces in the game Guess Who? Anyway, I still love the show and wanted to share my excitement for it to begin again.

I've also started going to the gym. Ok, I've gone once but that was yesterday and I have my clothes with me and plan to go again today. Since the field house on campus is free it's a good place to go and since Mr. Kramer is never home anymore (thanks to school and work) it's not like I have anything to hurry home to. So I went to the field house yesterday and feel so good about myself for finally working out again. If only I had thought to go there BEFORE the wedding. Anywho, thanks to Clem and TFMD I have a kick ass work out play list in my iPod that helps to keep me motivated.

That's really all there is to my life these days. I'm VERY excited about going to NY next weekend for TFMD's b-party. It should be a grand time and I am very much looking forward to it. I'm also heading to upstate NY in August to enjoy some time at my uncle's lake house and relax on the boat. Should be a swell time.

As for names for Scarlett and Rhett's house - I'm not super creative so I don't have a whole lot to give you. A few (ok, it might only be one) suggestion that popped into my mind (which means it's probably already the name of some place famous b/c I have very few original thoughts) is Ridgemoor. Yeah, that's all I got. I just tried thinking of something else and seriously couldn't do it. How sad is that.

"The Sedgefield" has a nice ring, doncha think?

I learned today that there was some vote to determine the new 7 wonders of the world. I was not asked to participate, but only like a 100 million other peeps did. How did this slip past my radar? Democracy ruled that the following are the top 7 wonders to behold:

Brazil's Statue of Christ Redeemer

Peru's Machu Picchu

Mexico's Chichen Itza pyramid

the Great Wall of China

Jordan's Petra

the Colosseum in Rome

India's Taj Mahal

I would like to amend this list and add, my house!

Okay, so Rhett and I have had a running joke since the KY Derby. It kinda ties into the whole wonders of the world / notable landmarks so I'll explain. This year a horse named Sedgefield ran in the Derby. We got to talking about how Sedgefield sounded like the name of an English estate in the Moors. Then a synapsis fired into an idea that we should name our house a really pretentious sounding name. With no one in the car to edit that idea, it then evolved into a plan to bum rush the P-town 'chamber of recognizing places of importances.' Not sure who in fact is responsible for that task, further research will need to be conducted, but I digress. We would lobby to have our newly named house, complete with an appropriate plaque of brass with aged patina, as a P-town landmark. Groundless and unjustified of course, we just think that by naming our house, it would lend an air of authenticity and validity to our requet to make it a P-town landmark. People who come into town can be given directions like: you turn left one house past the Sedgefield." It would be funny.

We're taking suggestions for names.

So just wondering if Pop's revelation has officially been made public....

Pop - where are you? Have you firmed up plans to meet us in NYC. I sure hope so.

So I just placed my order w/ Urban Outfitters for some red peeptoes. Yay! I 've been in the market for just the right red pumps since like 2005.

Just in time for NYC.

Clem has a MySpace fan! So does TFMD for that matter.

You guys should submit your photos to Darwin Dating since you're both such hotties. Not that either of you are in the market. Just think of it as a social experiment.
