Sundays are pretty much the bane of my existence. I utterly loathe them. However, today I decided to suck it up, ignore the upcoming work week, sit on my futon with some freshly-made pico de gallo, and judge celebrities. Win! Since I downgraded my Cox package to (intermittent) internet only, I lost most of my vapid style channels, like E! and Bravo. I hate to miss Guiliana making a fool of...
just like for science!
Lindsey: would you subject yourself to unnecessary amounts of radiation to see a research assistant you had a tiny crush on again? and earn $200?
me: crush + $200?
me: I'd do it
me: you can put that $200 towards some sunscreen
me: if that is how science works...
me: it's been awhile
Lindsey: im pretty sure the isotopes cruising through my body would not give me skin cancer...
Lindsey: but that's fine.
me: I am going to put this convo on my blog
Lindsey: oh, i'm famous!
me: there is this feature to show like, chats
me: that I haven't used yet
me: and I wanna try
Lindsey: i'm also a guinea pig!
Lindsey: just like i am for science.

“It is difficult to understand why people who say they are opposed to abortion would do so much to undermine the family planning and contraception that helps prevent the need for it.” - Cecile Richards, President, Planned Parenthood Federation of America Hear, hear.

Oxfords & Saddle Sneaks
All winter, I’ve pined for a pair of oxfords in warm brown leather. I love the lace-up look that emerged last fall, and they look as sophisticated with skinny jeans as a winter white skirt. Being partial to quality, I refused to waste $30-$50 on a knock-off pleather pair, leaving me no choice but to swoon over these J. Crew beauties: Camden Leather Brogues Unfortch, at $250.00 a pop,...
Happy Birthday, Joe!
Today is the BF’s 25th! Happy Birthday love, can’t wait to see you tonight. Since I’m not making a cake, here is one I found for you :) What I AM making is a Lebanese feast for Joe and his parents. No, I have never cooked Lebanese food before. Yes, he’s a professional chef. I am a masochist. Hoping some of his kitchen skills have rubbed off on me over the past...
I Love You, Governor O'Malley →
Gosh darnit, I love my home state of Maryland. I now realize how much I took for granted there, after living in Virginia for the past five and a half years. Yes, we had a blip during the Ehrlich era (whose wife Kendall gave my National Honor Society induction speech in 2003… I don’t care that you slummed it in public school once upon a time. Overruled by your hubs’ votes for...

Paris me manque
I’ve been feeling nostalgic for Paris lately. The last time I underwent TSA’s delightful international security screening was on my way to Beirut in July 2009. Don’t shed too many tears for me though: I made my way to both the west coast and Chicago for the first time since then. Aaaaaand, the boyfran and I have a sweet trip to Berkely, CA in the works for this year, which...
happy birthday/v-day to me!
Birthday is in a few weeks (March 5), but that doesn’t mean I can’t get a headstart with a joint Valentine’s/B-day present to myself. LOVE. Going to ignore the fact that this drained my checking account… vive les annees folles!
