This is the whole point of AC right?

So you can wear that leopard print coat you bought on sale around Christmas but never wore all winter?

And to look fly of course.

This is not real fur. I do not like real fur and I am too poor for real fur even if I did want to wear dead animals which I do not.

Fly-ness is 100% real and original. Glasses from Target, where boss bitches shop.

Stealing credit cards for Jesus Christ

Derek's credit card info was stolen. This is the second time this has happened to him. The first time the thief purchased massive amounts of ping pong balls. I can only assume they must really be into ping pong or they were a drunk college student.

What did the thief purchase this time? Why a membership to Christian Mingle.

So there is some man (or woman) who joined Christian Mingle with stolen credit card information. I wonder what their profile must say?

Hobbies: using stolen credit card info, collecting stamps and loving Jesus Christ

Education: Asshat University

People who inspire you: Bernie Madoff

Seems like a dreamboat to me!

There is one other possibility..... Derek joined Christian Mingle because he wants to date a good Christian girl rather than a french fry addicted cat lady.

I'm not a cat owner, I am owned by cats

I've realized I have a problem.

I'm owned by my cats.

They are quite evil really. Using their cute furry faces to get their way. I think I might be suffering from Stockholm syndrome.

Let me present you with some evidence.

I can't use my bathroom sink.

The sink is occupied!

I didn't realize how bad it's gotten until I went to brush my teeth last night.

Me: Enters bathroom, sees Mr. Binx in the sink

Mr. Binx: lifts head and looks at me.

Me: Ok I'll go brush my teeth in the kitchen. You look very cute.

And then I went and brushed my teeth in the kitchen sink. I mean really? It's like some kind of kitty mind control. Why else would I clean up their poop and pee and vomit, and let them use my sink as their cat bed?

I'm up all night to get lucky, I'm all night to get zZzZzZzZzZ

I was having dinner at the Pour House last night with Derek when Daft Punk's Get Lucky came on.

If you know me you know that I can't control myself when a song I like comes on, I have to sing along. Sometimes I even sing along to songs I don't like but know all the words to. I have no self control.

So I'm singing along...

She's up all night 'til the sun 
I'm up all night to get some 
She's up all night for good fun 
I'm up all night to get lucky 

Derek gets this look on his face. I know he's not making a face at my singing, he's used to that by now.

Me: why are you making that face?

Derek: Really? You're up all night to get lucky? You fall asleep right when we get home!

Me: I'm tired on Fridays from working all week so shut it.

Derek: continues making the facial expression

Me: continues singing....

I'm up all night to get lucky
I'm up all night to get lucky
I'm up all night to get lucky
I'm up all night to get lucky
I'm up all night to get lucky

If I ever needed proof that I am my mother's daughter

E-mail between me and my mother.

Me: Just checking (ha ha get it CHECKing) to see if you sent the check.

Mom: You are so funny with your play on words.

The checks in the mail, really, I just mailed it

who knew?
check-er-belly a rare snake found in Amazonian South America and Trinidad and Tobago
check-er-berry a creeping evergreen North American shrub with spiny scented leaves and white flowers
check•rein a short rein that extends from a horse's bit to the saddle to keep the horse from lowering its head

Me: I am learning so much right now

Ginny's Netflix reviews. The only reviews you will ever need.

I watch a ton of Netflix. This is what happens when you don't have cable and Two and a Half Men is on your non cable channels all the time.

Here's what I've been watching

House at the End of the Street: This movie stars Jennifer Lawrence. Need I say more? Ok I probably would have stopped watching this movie if J. Law wasn't in it. It was very predictable and not scary. I was expecting scary. So pass if you don't love Jennifer Lawrence.

The Dictator: Can I write a review if I haven't finished the movie? Yes I can, it's my blog. I have about 20 minutes left. It is no Borat. The few funny moments do not make it work the watch. If you do watch I suggest doing it very drunk, then you might find it mildly entertaining.

Breaking Bad: I'm on the second season and so far I'm really enjoying it. I'm all "come on Walter! You sell that meth!" I weirdly have crushes on Hank, Walter Junior and Jesse. What is wrong with me?! Jesse is a druggie who sleeps with prostitutes! Gross. Hank is middle aged and Walter Junior is in high school. Please confirm or deny my insanity. Skyler makes me want to rip my hair out.

Pretty Little Liars: Still on season one but I'm going through it pretty fast. I put off watching this show for a long time because I thought it would be too young for me but then I saw friends on facebook and twitter singing its praises. Well thank you friends I love it. Ally was/is a major bitch. I mean she blinded a girl! Talk about family programing ABC Family.

There it is. The good the bad and the need to watch while intoxicated.

Stupid is as stupid does

I was walking to the super market when I saw a man and woman collide on the sidewalk.

man: Watch where you're going!

woman: confused facial expression

I started laughing to myself. Clearly the man hadn't been watching where he was going either. Is it really that hard to say sorry and move on? Maybe the heat is turning us all crazy.

Is it odd

To hug a fan?

I don't think it's so odd when it's preventing you from melting in your bed. It's got a dual fan, it's quiet and goes by Sylvania. Poor Sylvania has no idea that this is a short term relationship until my dear AC returns.

Not working for days has turned my brain to mush as you can see. Or maybe it's the heat? I don't know. This also means that I have to stop eating Cheetos because vacation is DONE and it's too hot to exercise.

Walking with a ghost

People need to get over themselves. Dewey Square Mural is coming down.

The mural in Dewey Square painted by Otavio and Gustavio Pandolofo (awesome names, in my opinion) on the side of a utility building is coming down. The Greenway claims that the mural is "starting to show signs of deterioration" which is why it's coming down and some 18 month time limit on Greenway art. I don't believe that for a second. I've walked by the mural many times and I've never thought it was deteriorating.

The big deal is that some people think this is a "terrorist". The artists claim it is a boy in his pj's with a shirt around his head. Of course this all started when Fox asked its viewers if they thought the mural was offensive. Yes let's ask Fox viewers if something is offensive.

Personally I'm not the biggest fan of the mural but that's just my art preference. I guess I'm just tired of people turning everything into something. I have better things to do with my time. I also wish the Greenway would just admit the real reason for taking down the "worn" mural.

Now what should we put there instead?

A big truck and a ROCK FLAG AND EAGLE!!!"

Pillow thief

Look at this cute jerk.

Bosco likes pillows. He won't be having pillow access much longer. Once Derek and I move in together kitties out of the bedroom.

I love Charlie's Kitchen despite the dirty hipster smell that happens in there sometimes. Deodorant and showers are good my friends. Don't avoid them just because everyone does it.

We saw This is the End. I liked it and Derek hated it. It had its funny moments but there were a few bits that were too fart joke humor. I did love the very very end. I won't give it away but all I'll say is that's what I'd wish for too! I think I squealed and slapped Derek's arm.

I love the owls in the Somerville Theater. I took a picture of this before but I couldn't help myself. Next time I'll have to take pictures of the other random owls around the theater.

On the side of my popcorn it said "delicious and nutritious" I pointed this out to Derek so he'd know I was eating healthy.

Its been pretty hot during the day. I came home and found Bosco roasting himself. What is wrong with cats? I still have no AC in my apartment and probably will not until I move in August. I should probably become a cat until then.

One more day off and then back to work. I plan on being very lazy and hot tomorrow.

My new snail friend and Staycation part deux

Dinner and drinks at Society on High. I demolished a beet salad too. I love beet salad and beets in general.

My new snail friend. He enjoys rocks and hanging out on them. Does not like long walks on the beach.

My fat cat weirdly sitting in the window. He will make himself fit in the window! Does anyone else sing songs to their pets? I do..... "how much is that fatty in the window".

Melissa and I were walking to Moogy's which was a fail, but as we were walking we both stopped at this and she said "I know one of us is going to take a picture of this". Read my mind! I loved the lighting.

Hey, I just woke up and have allergy eyes which makes it look like I've been crying. The grass pollen is killing me.

Staycation Day 2 is happening RIGHT NOW.

I'm afraid you've got the Mexican beer dermatitis

Derek has a mysterious rash on his hand. It actually looks more like a burn except that he didn't burn himself. I tried putting cortisone cream on it (because men don't like to admit that they might need medication) but that didn't help.

Derek emailed me something about this plant called Hogweed that reacts with the sun and causes a chemical burn. You can see we were grasping at straws here. As I'm googling images for Hogweed skin reactions I see a few pictures of people who had a reaction on their skin to lime juice and sun. I then remembered that before this mysterious rash appeared we had been at Todd and Meg's lake house drinking Corona with limes. Looks like we won't need Dr. House after all.

Diagnosis: Corona injury or "Mexican beer dermatitis"! I hope this will save someone from a similar Mexican beer fate.

Neighborhood watch

Bosco's got this covered.

I'm going to miss all the pretty plants when I move. Allston is not exactly into gardening it's more into partying college students.

Summer jam situation! Need your immediate help! And Daft Punk are kind of pervs.

It's not summer without a good summer jam. I've been keeping an ear out to see what it will be for summer 2013.

I was considering Daft Punks' Get Lucky but no, those French guys are pervs and I don't trust their faceless faces. Apparently all they care about is getting lucky while this poor girl is just out for some fun of the dancing kind.

Ok I actually weirdly like this song and the video is kind of mesmerizing BUT I feel like there must be a better Summer of 2013 Jam!

So tell me readers. What is your Summer of 2013 Jam?

And it goes like this

I've spent most of this week away from the computer which was needed. I haven't even checked facebook in a while which is a big deal for me. It's become a habit to take out my phone and just see what's going on on facebook. I'm trying to get better about this.

I've had the best time the past couple of days. I went to karaoke at a gay bar with my friend Ashley. Ashley is not gay but she has a few friends that are and this bar just has such a fun atmosphere. I can see why she goes there with her friends.

Derek's friend Paul is in the navy and leaving to fulfill his duties so we took him out on Friday. I may or may not have borrowed his hat.

Please pardon this goofy grin on my face.I don't know if I can take a normal picture.

In true Ginny style I ate some pizza days and promptly passed out not long after this.

There were more parties and grilling the rest of the weekend. I attempted grilling corn on the grill in the husk and it came out great! I like it better than just boiling.

I've barely been home and my cats have gone insane because of that. They are crawling all over me for attention. No amount of petting will satisfy them. They should be back to normal tomorrow I hope.

And happy Father's Day! Sending out my love to my dad who passed a long time ago but is certainly not forgotten.

The birth of a puppy (not really I wouldn't show that on my blog!)

I hung out with Melissa and her puppy child Saturday night. We watched Horrible Bosses and drank wine.

Now it's Monday again. But I have a three day work week. I had some vacation days I had to use up before July or I'd lose them. Lazy staycation is it.

Pride and Prejudice confession

I have never read Pride and Prejudice. I know! Someone take my lady parts and revoke my female card. Don't worry because I'm reading it now. I've never heard a woman say a bad word about Pride and Prejudice. I confess I already love Darcy. Is anyone shocked? Not me. It's funny because I feel like I already know the story so well. I've seen many adaptations but it's time to step up and actually read it.

My first Austen book was Sense and Sensibility and loved it. Weird that I read that book first.

And can we just talk about this scene in Sense and Sensibility with Emma Thompson and Hugh Grant. Oh my god I love it so much.

When I first watched this scene I was like, this would probably be exactly how I would react. Emma Thompson I want to hug you.

Ok back to reading.

Doing my best lobster impression

Spent a hot but beautiful day by a lake on Saturday. I managed to get a bit of a sunburn despite sunblock and chasing the shade. What can I say, I am practically albino.

My cousin's bridal shower was today. I loved my idea of putting flowers in tea cups.
*pats self gently on sunburned back*

Sarina (the maid of honor) and my cousin Alexis.

I find bridal showers boring and they make me wish I was a dude and didn't have to go BUT I did have a good time and more importantly Alexis had a good time. Next up is the bachelorette party (holla!). Way more fun in my opinion. Seeing some pictures of me today was very much not fun. I feel like I look like a fat ass. Time to eat lettuce all the live long day! (Jokes! I like food too much to starve myself).

We've been roasting here in Boston and I don't have my AC in yet. Fun sweaty times over here. I have to wait for my landlord to put it in which means it will probably be put in in August when I'm ready to move. Hey it's like my own personal sauna. Might help with my fat ass problem.
