I sent a short text to a friend asking this question. Here is her response:
Ann Coulter is Right Wing Barbie. A shit kicker in the extreme. She is a waste of human skin that sucks valuable oxygen that other people could put to better use. She says inflammatory things to get attention and to sell books. In my dream world she is really a lesbian who attends anti-death penalty rallies and gives generously to animal rights – all things that would completely ruin her image and destroy her career. Ignore her, she will go away.

Apparently I left my wallet in the cab I took home last night (no, I wasn’t drunk, just tired and it was after 7 so the buses weren’t running directly to my house any more)
I didn’t notice because once I got home I didn’t actually need my wallet
Got multiple calls from 604.681.1111 between 2:45 and 3:15 this morning – no voicemail left
Called the number when I actually got up and it was Yellow Cab, but they had no idea why someone from there had called me
Realised my wallet was missing when I went to pay for the bus this morning
The penny dropped
Called Yellow Cab and yes, they had found my wallet – no explanation for the multiple 3 a.m. calls, though
Sent them a notarised letter authorising them to release my wallet to a courier I was sending over
Waiting for it now
What are the chances that the 5 $20 bills that I put in there just before getting into the cab last night are still there?? will let you know
*EDIT* MONEY ALL THERE!! HELL MUST HAVE FROZEN OVER, MY FAITH IN MANKIND RESTORED (FOR THE MOMENT)
In other news, the house that I live in, and have lived in for 7 years, is on the market, which sucks for many reasons. Not least of which is OPEN HOUSES!!! 2 this past weekend, another the weekend before and one this coming weekend. This sucks because I have to be out of the house for 3 hours each of those days WITH THE DOGS. Which would be fine if I had a car and could just go somewhere, but I don’t so it’s not exactly convenient. But I do it and it’s not the end of the world and I am fond of my landlords so will accommodate them.
Last week the agent showed the house on a Wednesday, a day that my dogs are not walked so are at home. The agent was told NOT to show my suite, which is at the back of the house. But of course he showed it and of course he then left the doors to my bedroom and bathroom OPEN thus allowing Scout full access. Goodbye to a purse and thank GOD she didn’t get to the EXTRA-STRENGTH GRAVOL that was in the purse because then? SHE WOULD BE DEAD!
Which brings us to yesterday – my landlords told me that the house was being shown but not the suite. I told them that the dogs would be out of the suite in the afternoon on a walk so if they wanted to show it that would be fine. The did not tell that to the agent and assumed that it would NOT be shown, Um, no. It was shown and the doors left open AGAIN – bye bye to another pair of shoes!
Scout is an anxious chewer which is why I keep all doors closed when I am not home – temptation is out of the way. If I happen to leave something out, that’s my fault. This is not my fault.
Am I wrong to expect to have the purse and shoes replaced?

On the bus this morning on my way to work a woman standing down the aisle from me caught my eye – tall, blond hair neatly pulled back in a pony, pencil skirt, good boots, funky swing jacket, fun scarf – she looked great, pulled together, good. “love her style” I thought to myself “would like to look like that”
and that’s when it hit me – I used to BE that girl – put together, chic, well-groomed, fashionable, confident
30 or so pounds and several life-crisis ago, that is
well crap, it’s time to go back to being THAT girl
I have a closet full of fantastic clothes – great jackets, funky skirts, chic pants, cute tops – but all 2 or 3 sizes too small – this must change
Lately I have taken to wearing my lulu pants or jeans to work with a sweater or hoodie and my Chucks. On the one hand, SO LUCKY I can dress like that at the office. On the other, it has allowed me to become lazy and complacent and not make any effort in getting dressed in the morning. I have become LAZY. And COMPLACENT. My mother would most definitely not approve.
I mean who cares, right? No one is going to see me, what does it matter?
Oh, it matters. Believe me, IT MATTERS! I need to make that effort again, care about what I put on before heading out the door. Be the girl people look at and say “wow, she looks GREAT! what style!” I was that girl and will be again. Soon. I figure by the end of April I can get my act together, drop 2 sizes and be right back in my kicky skirts and flirty tops, feeling good about being ME.
Show the world the best version of me and then the sky’s the limit – there will be no stopping what this girl can do!
will keep you posted . . .
*the fact that the episode of Beauty Call that I filmed a few months ago wherein they (and Whitney Port!) called me FAT (I am a size 12 to 14) in at least 18 different ways on national television has NOTHING to do with this!

ok, so I am all over US celebrities (JON HAMM!) loving the Canada garb from the Olympics but it sickens me a wee bit to see them leaving the HBC gift suite with 2 or 3 PAPER bags (this is another pet peeve – why not use the reusable CLOTH bags???) stuffed full of swag when people are lining up for HOURS to pay for it and there is nothing left
like these celebs NEED the stuff? will they ever wear it again??
sure, give them A sweatshirt or A jacket or A pair of mitts, but 3 entire bags stuffed full??
un peut trop
