Teeny Tiny Potatoes! I don't know how we're cooking them or when, all I know is, I'm glad that they exist! Adorable food never gets old...
P.S. I may be one of the first people to write a blog about potatoes... and that's kewl. Making history is what I'm about.

SOOOOOOoo now I need booties. NEED them. I found the perfect pair of black oxford booties online and they're on sale at Nordstrom's for only $66!!! Only problem is, I'm running low on cash since I've been shopping like mad @ Urban, Abercrombie, and Vicky's Secret. And I had to pay bills. It doesn't help that I bought a leather Coach Spotlight bag a few weeks ago, lol... Fashion, why do you torment me so?

We will be handle in hand for the remainder of the summer, then the fall and winter... until at last another darling purse catches my eye. Not to say that I will ignore my other loves... never that! But they will be placed on rotation with whatever other bag finds its way to me.

Most people weren't following the standard casting call rules of "white fitted tee, skinny jeans, minimal make-up, and high heels." This is DC though, so what should I have expected? Most of the girls were decked out in their most fashionable outfits: brightly colored ruffled shirts, high-waisted skirts, minis, wedges, chunky jewelry and all. Me and my friend from high school chatted while we waited. I wasn't nervous until a little before 10, when the ANTM staff started rolling in and setting everything up.
At 10:15, my stomach started churning.
Soooo, what happened, you're wondering? Well, once I finally got up there, I gave them my paperwork and pics and waited to get my picture taken with my name placard in front of me. Then I waited to take my turn to walk a little, and then I answered a question - interview style - and then I was done! Quick and painless. I made sure to smile a lot and be enthusiastic.
I was lucky enough to get Paul Wharton as my interviewer. What a sweetheart! He told me i have nice teeth, haha!!!

Part of me feels confident that I'll at least make an impression on them. Part of me is wondering if they'll even get a chance to SEE me. I mean, how many people are gonna show up? A few dozen? A few thousand? It starts at 10, so what time should I show up? I'm not one to sleep in public places in order to be first in line, but I have no idea how big the crowd will be, and how efficient these ANTM folks will be with time.
Have you read the application? Some of these questions seem like they are trying to fish out the crazies via a pen and paper: "Have you ever been diagnosed with, or treated for, alcoholism or any other drug-related addiction?" Like someone would respond: "Gee, i dunno... I don't like rehab. AA is for quitters."
Or this one: "When was the last time you hit, punched, kicked, or threw something in anger? Please provide details." Ummmm... wah? What do you care if I flung a chocolate milkshake at my teddybear in anger? Sheesh!

It has a detachable shoulder strap, and it's just the right size to hold my favorite wallet, sunglasses, and a water bottle or small cover-up. And at $348, it's definitely a little investment for a college graduate like myself, yet not a bank-breaker. Maybe i'll wait til it goes on sale. Maybe I won't. All I know is, I've gotta have it!

i couldn't tell you.
for months i've been wandering around...
picking up the shards of broken glass
til my fingers are lined with tiny, red cuts.
but it doesn't hurt.not nearly as much it used to...
i'm almost finished cleaning now
but some of the stains are harder to remove...
like the one of you kissing me at the stoplight
and the one where you told me you loved me is the stickiest;
it's taking a while to scrub that one away.
but i have no doubt that one day this place'll be spotless.
no more memories,
no more lies.
just me in my favorite chair,
