Before I start I wanna clear something up. You hate celebrity? You hate all the money floating around Hollywood and "nobody caring about starving kids or homelessness"? Well I equally hate home much you bitch about it. In addition to that,  I don't see any volunteering gigs or donations on your resume either. Just sayin.

So...OMG. If you don't follow me on Facebook, or Twitter, or Instagram (obsessed btdubs) or Tumblr then you wouldn't know that I GOT TO MEET ICE & COCO!!! Ahhhhh, they came into my day job and I had the absolute pleasure of helping Coco pick out a few things & even adjust a dress over her sexy booty.

They both looked great & were SO sweet. I had to take advantage of the opportunity to tell Ice that I used to work at Law & Order and how big a fan I am of their show - then I did a whacky fangirl thing and said "I'm from Jersey too, woot!" and then I walked away. Hahah FML!

I was incredibly shy about asking for a picture, but I had to. I look awful post lunch, no lipstick and frankly, SO tired but I don't care. I'm freaking out!!

While this might seem silly or even shallow to you, it's important to me. It's only proof that the things I dream of happening (no matter how small) actually can!
  I had another rockstar day at work and I left on cloud 9. I called my mom just checking in and she could hear in my voice how happy I am. I am having a blast right now. Life is good!

Ciao for now,


PS: My Mom was sweet and said "I know Ice, but who is Coco?" you can imagine Mom voice too ha!!

Seriously? You're so annoying.

I don't know about you, but I think about myself A LOT! Not just my absurd good looks and my beautiful mounds (hahah I'm dyin.), but about the type of person I am and  would like to be sooner than later.

I often examine the things I say or do and how I say or do them. I'm curious if or how my words and actions effect people in my daily life. I try to be hyper aware of my interactions. This isn't quite as neurotic as it sounds here...I guess I'm just a little annoyed with lots of people lately (last week I was a total bitch thanks to Aunt Flow). I'm confused by friends & lovers alike.  I feel like everyone is so clueless and on top of that they don't even care! I care. I care so much I'm boiling inside. Because of my innate desire to make sure everyone is comfortable though, I eat all the frustration.  I figure all the garbage will amount to good jokes for stage  and maybe even screen one day. Who knows!?

So this is hilarious. I'm so over OkCupid already. It just feels so unnatural to me. I have no desire to shuffle through profiles and answer questions AND THEN even say how important they are to me AND THEN explain which answers I'd "accept". Sheesh. Can't  you just chat me up at the bar? or coffee shop? or heck, even on the street! What I am finding to be interesting though, is how a few guys I know in real life are sorta paying much more attention and sorta teasing through OKC. Are they flirting? Still sissy to ask me out for a drink? Funny thing is I'd accept the offers, happily!

Ok, peace Dee I'm outtie.

Ciao for now,

The Casualties of Being Casual: 3

Almost a year to the day and I'm still callin the same booty. I must be frustrated because I was so annoyed with him last week.

It's such an interesting relationship we have. Frankly, I don't know if he's sleeping with anyone else, I wouldn't be surprised, but I don't care. I haven't seen him in some time though. About 4 months actually. Strangely enough we've kept in touch. I figured he'd disappear like the rest but nope, he still calls and we have real phone conversations. The thought of dating him makes me shudder though. I know I'd be over it REALLY fast.  We are very different people when it comes to the things that matter.

Anyway, this dude does NOT like changing his ways, not even for me, his white girl lover. He works, plays bass, smokes weed, practices tae kwon do, works more and does not budge. Some night ago, I had an empty apartment - a rarity - so I invited him over. His "can't wait" enthusiasm, being that it would be his first time seeing my place, quickly turned into a "wish you woulda told me sooner, I need to practice for my gig". I was fuming. It was definitely a "why don't you fuck your bass" situation. I told him I was annoyed and we had about an hour phone conversation. I came very close to hanging up on him though.

I don't know if I'm feeling needy (read: pretty H word), but I need some manttention. I still haven't uploaded a pic or finished my profile on OkCupid either. What is my problem!? I need to clarify, I'd like someone interesting and that I find attractive to spend some time with. I'm not an anyone will do kinda gal!


Ciao for now,

The Big V!

Not virginity - I lost that a long time ago and unknowingly it would determine the rest of my life. Maybe I'll talk about that one day. No, I don't have a secret kid!
Not vagina - although I've got one and take with me everywhere I go.

I'm talkin about Valentine! Have one this year? Me neither, but there's more than a week left to get one, who knows what can happen?! I don't mind though. I always send my friends and family Valentines. My life is rich with love even without having a date!

I do enjoy though, all the bitterness the "stupid, hallmark holiday" brings out in people. It's kind of hilarious. I also love hearing the angry rants from people obviously wishing they had another but aren't out there actively looking for him or her. Not meeting anyone, no mixers, or bars, or dating sites, or having friends match them up, etc...

I'm ok being single, I believe it'll happen when it happens. I do know it won't happen though, if I'm not out in the world letting the universe bring it to me!

That said, I think I'm off from workon V-day and am planning on going to Nurse Bettie - any other ladies or gents wanna join? It's always a party and would be a fun night to enjoy Calamity Chang's show too!

THIS WEEKEND come to **Bettie on the Bowery**
The shop will be closed Friday to prep & Saturday to celebrate!
We'll be having 2 fashion shows of our Spring 2013 collection, Fall 2013 preview, I'LL BE PERFORMING 2X, champagne, music, hors d' oeuvres, some VIPs in the house, and we're launching our new perfume!

Ok, I'm outta here gonna watch some New Girl - then I'm gonna post up on Twitter for an hour. Stop by and live tweet with me! Questions, Comments, concerns, blog topics, etc...let's Tweet! :)
