Cool. Not Cool. Undecided.

Posted By: Leah

I found my glasses! After posting my girl crushes yesterday, I realized that I am totally a glasses girl and have not been rocking them as I should recently. Ok, honestly, I have misplaced my favorite rectangular shaped glasses and didn't want to have a throw-back party to my old more oval ones. ANYHOW this inspired me to search through ALL my luggage (where I was sure I had left them.) and sure enough! After 4 months straight in contacts, I'm a glasses girl yet again.
BF's special weekend bday celebration starts TONIGHT! Ok, really I've already had 2 cards sent to him this week + shipped him coffee from our (possibly just my) FAVORITE coffee shop Cup A Joe. So he's been celebrating all week hopefully!

I think I finally have a handle on BF's and Gav's bday's. I think I have BF's 100% set (and yes, I did jump out of bed in the middle of the night when I remembered I forgot to pack bday candles). I just need to enter a couple addresses in my garmin, and we should (knock on wood) be all set for our weekend adventure! More to come on this.

You guys, all this talk on Chick Fil A has me craving that sandwich with 2 pickles something fierce. I am SOOOO over the CFA thing. BUT... chicken sandwiches are sooo good, they are what made me start eating meat again 2 yrs ago (yes, I would sneek CFA once a week when vegan), plus their customer service is AWESOME. But, because of  supporting of my friends, family members, co-workers, etc who are gay, I am more loyal to my friends and their rights than any organization.  THANK GOD I'm not pregnant with killer cravings or I'd have to go against everything I've preached and support a company that has publically admitted to using $3 mill in funds to support anti-gay causes. A religious pilgrimage to eat fast food is what happened earlier this week. And if you disagree with me, that's cool too. I really don't want to talk about it anymore. The whole situation is not cool and I'm sad for people on all sides.

PS - This whole make-out day thing is gross, though. Same-sex, different-sex, whatever... PDA is trashy no matter who you are. Please let someone somewhere be dressed as Ronald McDonald and make out with the Burger King King creep guy.

Ombre hair. It looks sooo pretty when it's down. But I'm not sure how I feel about it in any other style, like in a top knot. A lot of my friends have jumped on the ombre bandwagon. At first, I admit, I was like wow! looks like you haven't gotten your highlights touched up for the past year. But then it really grew on me (no pun intended). Not sure if it's something I would get, but I like it for other people. Sometimes.

BlogHer. ALL the BIG bloggers are in NYC right now. These normal everyday girls have turned into celebrities. Seriously. Celebrities right down to huge corporate sponsors and swag bags. I'm not pointing fingers, naming names, or calling anyone a blog snob. BUT, as I scroll through MY posts from say, 2 yrs ago that I have written... MANY of these girls were my blog-friends. They commented on my posts, we'd e-mail back and forth. And suddenly, once they hit however many 2,000 or 5,000 or 10,000 followers they have no time. For anything. And that's all they blog about, how busy they are. And I don't necessarily think their blogs are the best ones out there. There are SUCH good other ones that for whatever reason haven't caught on like wildfire as theirs did. I am absolutely not saying mine is one of them. I am a total niche blog of hello kitty & my own self-absorption (I sound like a paper towel). But what I'm saying is I have a weird feeling of jealousy/snarkyness as I see some of the ladies basking in their self-rightiousness. And no, I'm not a member of the BlogHer Network, I'm a Clever Girls Collective girl. And yes, I got another check from CGC yesterday so I am NOT complaining (and you guys have NO CLUE about my sponsored posts, right? Yup I'm THAT GOOD at writing lol j/k). But IDK, I kind of wish it was me running around NYC with other fun blog girls, IGing #Blogher12 pics, and being a 'celebrity.'

What are you saying Cool, Not Cool, and Undecided to today? I'm linking up with Janette the Jongleur who is one of the coolest girls around!


  1. I want to go to BlogHer next year even! I could care less that I am not an :in crowd" blogger. It just sounds fun!

  2. Agreed about blogher. there are a bunch of blogs that started the same month i did that have blown up and now those bloggers aren't coming around anymore. i know lots of them work really hard at it, but still not cool to drop the people you started with.

  3. The paper towel comment almost made me wet my pants!

  4. Paper towel made me laugh too! Yeah, I see all the bloggers on IG and I think, hmmm. Honestly, I don't understand how one blog gets big and another doesn't. I blog for myself. Who knows. I am fortunate enough to live here in NYC so anytime you wanna visit, let me know!

  5. I'm addicted to CFA. They're chicken strips & strawberry milkshakes are going to be the fatty death of me haha. I've been trying to stay out of everything thats going on. I love the gays beyond belief but when my belly wants some CFA, it gets it.

    When I first started blogging I thought it would be the bees knees to attend Blogher but now, after 3 years, I'm over it. I'd rather save my hundreds of dollars & go on vacation :) Also, for the record, you rock those glasses like a hot geeky rock star.

  6. Oh wow! I looove you in glasses! You've got the perfect face for them! Yup! Yup! So anyway. First of all.. Tons of stuff to say about this post.. Firstly..Thanks so much for linking up! Wooo! Makes my day! I seriously had no time to write up a post last week.. Okay.. Now the things that really struck me about this..Ombre hair.. Yup. That's a total undecided! I mean, do you think in a few years those girls will look back and say, "What in the world was I thinking????" I personally prefer the kind that doesn't look too noticeable..I mean, I've seen platinum blond with jet black..and I don't like that... Secondly...Or wait.. Is that thirdly? Hmm.. I really don't get how bloggers blow up over night. I mean, I know I've worked hard for every new reader I've luckily acquired! I mean.. I comment like heck and do guest posts and what not.. But 10,000 readers??? I just don't get it. I must not have "it" Whatever that may be.. Oh well.. I enjoy blogging and look forward to it...But that stinks that those ex blog friends don't talk to you anymore..Oh well, their loss. You're awesome!

    Janette, the Jongleur

    PS. The paper towel part made me chuckle too..Haha!
