Whine City USA/Food Dork Alert/Product Review

Whine City USA

Riddle me this. Why do people forget how to drive when it rains? It's really not any different than when it's not raining aside from flipping on a gadget in your car. People can drive while on their phone, eating a Big Mac, applying makeup, receiving head, completely turned around disciplining children, singing with eyes closed to top 40 radios and on drugs. Why not when there's a little bit of moisture in the air and on the ground. Really? I left at 7.15am this morning to drive 17 miles on a major highway. I got in at 8.20. Boo.

Food Dork Alert

Orangette. You want to go to there if you like cooking, food, recipes, sumptuous pictures of food and Oklahomans. And guess what? There's a book signing at Full Circle in OKC for her new book on Saturday! Yay!

Product Review

I don't smell good naturally. You know how some people smell good no matter what? Like they have natural fabric softener in their pores or something? I am not one of those people. So I like to douse myself in things that smell well. I've been using Angel for the winter, but it's time to kick into spring (even though it's now starting to sleet and it's all dark and crud). Fortunately, a former coworker popped in for a visit the other afternoon and smelled up my office with the dreamy scent of Be Delicious, a DKNY springsweet fragrance of loveliness. Sniff me.

Hey - I'm planning to go to the book signing Saturday! Maybe I'll see you there!'s snowing now instead of rain. crap.

Man, I am so sick of this cold weather. :-/

I know what you mean about the smell good stuff. I really like lotions or body sprays that have a nice, pretty, clean scent. For the longest time I was wearing Cherry Vanilla. They sell it at Wal-Mart (I know, I know blah!), but I recently bought a bottle of Hawaii by Michael Kors. It has a very warm and fun smell to it. Makes me think of summer time!

So, not to be a total dork, but I'm buying this cologne when it comes out:

ballerina - snowing? what? boo. saturday should be nice.

gerben - michael kors does some good work. so does marc jacobs. if only they could do it cheaply.

john - i think most people would kid, but you are dead serious.

The Red Delicious is yummy too.

blythe said...

i woulda sniffed it, but there was no tester. the gall!

Jess said...

Dude, I totally used to wear Angel, too!

I've been wanting to buy more, but no one gave it to me for Christmas or my birthday (assholes) and I'm too poor to purchase it at the moment.

blythe said...

it was a gift from the duty free shop when the ex went to europe without me once. i should probably stop wearing it due to bad karma. but it's still a half full bottle/star. want it?

I think the idea is that people slow down so as to retain traction and avoid slamming into other vehicles or roadside obstacles and flipping, twisting, and burning in a fiery carwheel of death. The big wusses.

Sumptuous pictures of food and Oklahomans? Who could say no to that?

Jess said...

Shit, if you're giving it away, I'll take it.
