Breaking News

I don’t have friends in high places. I have friends in the right places.

Yesterday, Dana just so happened to place herself in the perfect eavesdropping position during a Starbucks Corporate Meeting in a Florida Starbies. Well done, Daner. Well done.

What did this fortunate circumstance get us? An inside scoop.

There’s a new sheriff in town, Starbucks lovahs.


The skinny peppermint mocha. A yummy, slimmed-down sheriff. And he can rule any town of mine.


I will probably never get pregnant. Everything I do is the antithesis of having a bun in the oven.


And on that note, probably won’t ever dye my hair brown. I just can’t rock it like you, Gina. You = rockstar. My face on your body = gremlin.

I like to eat bleu cheese, sleep on my stomach, eat raw dough/batter, inhale caffeine, eat sushi, bend to pick things up, eat fish and do forward rolls. Oh. And um, drink alcohol.



Someone else got skinny, too. Jonah Hill is suddenly a stud?

I learned from Ellen (my main news source.. whatever) that he took #2 on Cosmo’s stud-o-meter. He lost to Gerard Butler.

…eh. I’d still prefer Chace.


It was school picture day.

Just in case anyone wants one for their binder. I told Dana I’d even sign the back “bfffffffff” for her.


All training for this Sunday’s Marine Corps Marathon: DONE.

I woke up at 6:30 this morning to get my final two miles in and watched the sun rise as I bopped down the sidewalk. It was glorious. I could have skipped.

Aaand now everyone knows what I look like when I wake up in the morning.

Sidenote: my house was bought as a fixer-upper. Clearly, the bathroom has not been redone yet. Please avert your eyes from the really great paint splotch design by previous owners.

I LOVE the peppermint mocha!!!! Hands down my fave Starbucks drink. So comforting and holiday-like. This is amazing news.

Also, I bet Jonah Hill won’t be as funny anymore now that he’s all skinny… what’s up with that? How dare he.
