Get your discount for organic tampons NOW

First things first, remember the good people of LOLA I told you about in my last post? Well, we did end up getting in contact with each other, and they did give me a promo code for friends, and family, and what not. And since you’re my friends, and family, and what not here it is: lkolisnyk2 for a $5 discount. And before you wine that it’s so small, just check them out, and make a conscious decision about signing up with them. And I’m just possibly saving you $5. Buy extra gum with it or something. Today was another snowstorm...

I’m not done with this chaos, just yet.

I went away to Pennsylvania this weekend. Because I have a house there now. And it only took me about six months of dealing with bureaucracies, and drinking myself to sleep on some occasions, but it happened. I’m not moving, as this will be an investment property. So, I’ll still be your girl from Brooklyn. But I have a house now, and it feels weird. Because legally speaking it’s mine, but technically speaking it’s owned by a bank who gave me mortgage, and a certain time frame to make it work, and call it mine. Until I pay it off, or fuck up royally, and end...

Indians are still cool though

So I had a lovely Thanksgiving, and I mentioned about it in my last post. Did you read it? Yeah, it was shit. I was fresh after the surgery, and spent all day in a sitting/laying position bossing everyone around me, and demanding things. Because when the opportunity strikes… And thankfully, I did have people around me to boss because it was a holiday weekend. And if you ask me what is the best time to have your ovarian cyst removed? I’ll tell you, it’s the day before Thanksgiving. You’re welcome. In all seriousness, I was extremely lucky to have four days...

Don’t get too relaxed

This has been a crazy week, you guys. Both good crazy, and bad crazy, and it’s kind of confusing. I feel mostly just sent, emotionally drained. So I’m going to spit it all at ya, and leave it at that.   I’m going away tomorrow for the next week. So you won’t hear from me during that time. Unless, I miss you so much, I pop in here. Which is highly unlikely since I’ll be on vacation, enjoying my own damn self. No offense. I’m going to Israel. Again. For some reason. I’m actually going to a family wedding. And...

The Stolen Paintbrush

Happy Columbus day to those of you who have today as a day off. Which is probably an overwhelming majority. Except for me. I’m working today. Because our company doesn’t believe in the importance of celebrating discovery of this continent. I mean this shit happened like ages ago. Enough with the fuss already. And frankly, how hard was it to discover a whole damn continent? As far as land masses go, continents are pretty large. You just need to leave your house and stumble upon one. So it looks like I’m agreeing with my companies policy to disregard this holiday...

We All Hate Our Jobs. Good News, We’re in It Together.

My McSweeney’s article got turned down.  And it was a reasonable response with cohesive feedback, so I don’t actually feel too bad about it. And I know that I just rushed into this too fast. I read like one article on their site, and immediately started writing mine. So what I submitted didn’t fit their required style. And I absolutely agree with that now. And any rejections is just another experience to learn from. Or it’s a reason to give up on all your life’s dreams. It’s either one of those.   I went to Bushwick this Saturday to check...

RIP sandal

So, I woke up this morning and everything was relatively fine. I had a good amount of sleep, I felt fairly rested, even with a flair of acceptance for Monday and the rest of shitty humanity.   But then my sandal ripped. I was walking from a copy machine on CARPET flooring, and just heard a ripping sound, and it was my sandal. It just decided to give up on me. I wasn’t jogging in my sandals, or climbing fucking trees, wasn’t even walking that fast, and it just decided it had enough of my feet. Arguably being a foot...

Badass Cinderellas

You know what brings people together? Shitty bosses. This past Friday we had my old company’s reunion. Or actually not a company reunion, but its former employees reunion. We all used to work for this same company, all successful quit over time, but have remained more or less in contact with each other. Because we share that unbreakable bond of many times together, complex situations, funny situations, but more importantly shitty boss situations. And who knows the extent of psychological damage embedded in each one of us presently, but nobody is in jail, and we all pay our taxes. So, call...

I have gas, and a bunch of Pokemons

Ok, I’m seriously not sure what the deal is between me and these municipal organizations, but we don’t seem to be doing well together. Not even in a love-hate relationship way. And more like in a hate-hate relationship way.   I moved recently, and have been living without gas for the past week (I did have hot water and showered (because apparently this was a question that came up at work (I mean wouldn’t you probably notice if I didn’t shower for a week). Anyway, this wasn’t a big deal since I mostly need gas for my morning coffee only....

To All Graduates, some skittles wisdom

I attended a friend’s graduation this Wednesday, and it brought back memories. Memories of my own graduation. You know, the one that I never attended. That’s right. When it finally came down to the end of college torture I said ‘I am not attending any ceremonies, I am not celebrating the times together, give me my diploma, and I want nothing to do with you people.’ It’s hard to point out what exactly I hated about college. Because it was more like everything. It could be related to the fact that I was working full time, and taking classes full...
