Crazy Day Today – As Usual

I have a few offline things I need to take care of today, so please forgive the lack of posting I’ll be doing on LATB. I did want to do a quick personal post because I haven’t done one of these in a while.


I think I am going to try to officially get off of my migraine meds. I’m going to call my doctor and find out what’s the proper way to do this because the last time I tried, I did it cold turkey and went through some major mood swings. Want to do it the right way this time.


I think I got invited to a good 50-60 shows this season for NY Fashion Week. And I got SEATS this year which is so crazy because all other seasons (I’ve done about 6 up to this point), I HARDLY EVER got seat assignments. That makes me really happy. However, I gave 99% of the shows to my writers which is awesome because they are all so fab and young and energetic. I don’t know why I didn’t keep ONE day for myself. This time of the year is always so overwhelming and I literally just dumped my whole schedule onto my team. Now that we are in day two, I’m not so sure WHY I decided to do that. LOL! Oh well – next season I will look back and have a lesson learned.

Natasha Bedingfield:

I cannot stop listening to ‘Strip Me’ from Natasha Bedingfield. And I’m not being dramatic here. I mean I CANNOT STOP LISTENING TO THAT SONG. I have had it on repeat for the last 2 days. What is wrong with me?! It’s like Clockwork Orange but I’m doing it to myself.  Need to find a way to let it go.


I went to the Apple store to see about the iPhone now that it’s on Verizon. I’ve NEVER wanted anything to do with the iPhone because of AT&T. That service is HORRIBLE in NY. All my friends constantly lose their phone calls and I didn’t want to deal with it. But now that it’s on Verizon, I decided to go and look. HELLO – it costs $650! Are they insane???? I was like, WHAT???? I’m not eligible for an upgrade – that’s why it’s so much. If I was eligible then it would be $299? OR $199. Forgot what he said. I walked right out. Who pays that much for a phone these days? Cr-azy


I made a video for the Women’s Day Red Dress Awards (see it here) and as of right now about 3K people viewed it. All because the singer Charice is in it. A bunch of fan clubs linked to that video and I can’t get over how many people tuned in. That is amazing, but I never expected it. Have you heard the girl sing though? I guess it does make sense since she is probably one of the best singers on the PLANET.


I FINALLY found someone who can help with I’m Not Obsessed and all the issues I’ve been having. There are so many things that need to be fixed because of a botched migration and it makes me sick on a daily basis. I am SO UPSET that my old server got hacked. Because of that, we had to rush to push me over to a new server and so many mistakes were made.

For example, NONE OF MY IMAGES show up on posts that are older than Aug of 2010. I mean, how is that acceptable? It’s not — so thankfully someone is looking into fixing it. My pageviews have plummeted because of 5 or 6 major problems and I feel at ease knowing that there is actually something being done to fix it.


I’ve got the itch!! I’m shaking. I’m about ready to sneak off for some random weekend with whoever will go with me just to go some place warm. LOL! Bill better watch out because the first person to offer is the one that I’ll be lounging on a beach with. 🙂

Trying to calm myself down, but I’m very manic (if you don’t know yet) and once my wheels start spinning it’s REALLY hard to stop.

I think that’s it for now…

I have a few conference calls for ‘Getting Gorgeous’ and need to do some stuff at Natalie’s school today. So, I just wanted to wish you all a great weekend! : )

  1. Hi there! I’m a big fan of Charice. Somebody from one of her fansites posted a link to this blog of yours, the reason I’m here. Curious. May I just ask what specific video of her you were pertaining too. Is that a youtube upload? Can you please provide a link? Thanks in advance. 🙂

  2. Oh god, when I saw this post I immediately thought something happened to your doggy! So glad he’s OK!
    You should see the prices for iphones here in Switzerland, people here order them from the US because $650 is actually cheap compared to that lol
