College Is For Suckers

So this is depressing- especially if you're paying back student loans.

Most Eligible Dallas

I'm writing this post for one person and one person only. Super Fan, you know who you are. 

Dear Kourtney,
You're not funny. 

You kind of remind me of Patrick Bateman. I'm sure you have no idea who that is. Download American Psycho

Remember when you were on the photo shoot and said, "I feel like, I'm just like, a natural born poser,"? I nodded. 

We get it. The show is about Dallas. Dallas is in Texas. People are familiar with Texas. Also, pretty sure "Big Hair Day" isn't a "national day" if it's Texas specific. 

So far you're my favorite. I love the way you pronounce "button." And you're right- Texas wine makes me want to vomit too. 

I'm not sure I'm spelling your name correctly. I'm sorry Kourtney was mean to you, but keep in mind that it's just because you have everything she wants and you're throwing it in her face on a Wednesday night at 11:00 p.m. when you should be at home with your child. Kourtney is just insanely jealous traditional. Because she's from Texas. 


Clearly, Andy isn't producing this one.

Brilliantly Written.Terrifyingly True.

Rick Perry has been flirting with idea of a presidential run for the last few months months his entire life. While many of you might think it impossible to elect another Texan to the White House so soon after W. be careful not to underestimate Perry or our nation's tendency to swing in the polar opposite direction when something isn't working. What was that brilliant campaign slogan? 

Something about change . . . 

If you don't understand why folks are saying that Rick Perry is the "eight-hundred-pound guerrilla on the sidelines of this race" let Paul Burka explain it for you.

Oh and check out these political ads that he's run through the years. Don Draper couldn't have designed a more manipulative ad campaign. I have to hand it to Perry- thematically, he's damn consistent.

Cry Baby

A few weeks ago I visited a very close friend of mine who lives in Houston. She had a baby in November so I was very excited to get to spend some time getting to know her son. It's so cool to watch someone you've known since the age of nine parent their child. My friend is such a good mother- attentive but at the same time very laid back. I could tell right away that she has an immeasurable amount of love for her son. My childhood bud has totally mastered being a mom, and I suddenly felt very grown simply by witnessing that. 

But I guess we still bring out one another's mischievous side, because at some point during my visit my friend turned to me and said, "Do you want to see the saddest, cutest thing in the world?" Of course I said yes, and she said, "Okay, I would only do this for you."  

So we sat the baby in front of us, and my friend proceeded to make this really irritating sound and the baby made the most adorable, heartbreaking face I've ever seen which was followed by the cutest crying I've ever heard. And then he would self-sooth which was equally adorable, and then I would say "do it again." 

She decided to video tape it so she wouldn't traumatize him by repeating this again and again which anyone would be tempted to do because it is just so funny. I hope you enjoy it! And don't feel sorry for him- he has a really relaxing white noise machine in his plush little nursery and has never had a single drop of tap water. He's fine.
