(Just a Few) Random Thoughts

I find myself right clicking on pictures of bouquets I like or hairstyles I like and saving them in my Wedding folder. Quick and easy way to save and organize ideas.

Take that, Martha Stewart.


Office Max is pissing me off (watch their new commercial). I had written an entire post dedicated to how much they’re pissing me off, but let me just say this:

Just because I’m a woman doesn’t mean I’m going to throw all logic to the wind and buy your $40 silver stapler or your $.99 baroque file folders. Just because you’ve revamped your image to include a bazillion flowers and pretty colors does not mean I’m going to be suckered into spending more money than I should just so my office looks all pretty. Yes, you’ve discovered that 80% of your customers are women, but holy crap, overdo it much? The two men I work with are as offended as I am.

Now, that said, the shoes that the woman is wearing in the advertisement that came today are FANTABULOUS. I don’t give a shit about your Candy Apple Red 4WRK paper shredder, but I need to know where I can buy those shoes.


I still haven’t tried on any wedding dresses. Isn’t that funny? You would think the first thing I would have done after getting engaged was go try on the big frilly dresses. But no. Maybe I’ve been too busy. Maybe I think I’m fat. Maybe I’m scared that it will be harder than I think and I’ll get discouraged.

Maybe I’ll make an appointment for next weekend. Maybe.


I decorated my cube for Valentine’s Day. It’s not that I love Valentine’s Day so much, it’s really just to irk my co-workers who made a fuss when I decorated for Christmas. And because they’ve made their feelings known, I will be decorating for St Patrick’s Day and Easter and maybe even Memorial Day. So there.

Last year, I wore black (bad year and all) and I found a black hat complete with veil on my desk when I arrived to work. I know who left it. He's a funny guy.

So I wore it all day.

I live to entertain my co-workers.

You apparently *also* live to entertain your fiance in bar trivia.

1 - Don't sweat the Office Max ad. Not buying femmy crap = change in ad attack.

2 - That shredder would make a lovely purse.

3 - Wedding dresses: I should make you one mebbe? I gots time.

This post brought to you by the veriword 'ingly': an ugly tingle brought on by too much cheap makeup.

Girl - go try on dresses. What if you find THE DRESS but you waited too long and then they can't get it in time? That would be tragic. Go try on dresses! It's fun!

Oh Lucy. I would love for you to make me a dress, but I'm prone to option paralysis. If I'm actually given the option to say what all I want, I become obsessed and can't make a decision to save my life.

And you're all the way down in Cali! How would we work the fittings?!

Thank you, sweetie. I appreciate the offer.

OK, you NEED to go try on dresses STAT. It'll take time to 1) find the dress you want (I tried on 45...yes really), 2) tailored to fit you (if they have it in your size...if not,) or ordered in your size, and then, 3) once your size shows up, go back to step 2. Then keep going back to step 2 over and over again until it's perfect (I had 5 fittings, each 3 weeks apart).

If this doesn't sound like much of a problem, you'll realize it is when they tell you it could take 3-5 months to receive the dress in your size if they don't already have it.

Let me put this another way...

Unless you plan to get married in something other than a non-traditional bridal gown (which is totally cool, btw), YOU NEED TO GO DRESS SHOPPING RIGHT AWAY. YOU ARE SERIOUSLY RUNNING OUT OF TIME.

Nothing but the truth. And I so wish I could go with you! Love you, girl. XO

This comment brought to you by the word verification "venty," e.g. my last comment got a little VENTY! Or perhaps I should get the Grande latte next time instead of the VENTY. Oy. ;)
