Sex and the City

Okay, so thinking up correlative song lyrics every time I want to write a blog is perhaps one of the major things that prevents me from writing more often (pathetic, yes, but true) so I've decided to switch to more descriptive titles. If you didn't notice that they were song lyrics before, then you wont be missing much.

So, as the title indicates, I went to Sex and the City (SATC) this weekend with Kari, her sister Sarah, law school compatriot Tracy and her BFF Rachel. A great group, I must say.

The movie was perfection. I know that they New York Times wrote this article, and although I usually agree with most things the NYT has to say, this time they're WAY off the mark. Anyone that loved the movie will certainly love the film, and the comedic timing is just as good in the film as the show. There's a chance that we'll actually go back and see it again in the theater before all's said and done, and we'll definitely be buying it when it comes to DVD, so, you know, keep that in mind.

I still have so much to do, but little drive to actually do anything. Kari and I went to look at open houses today. One of my favorite hobbies, especially because I usually get to get ice cream or some other delicious treat while we're out. Awesome.

I think I may add sesame chicken to my food review list, but we'll see. Also, the Uptown Diner (not to be confused with the Uptown Bar and Grill) has proclaimed on its sign that they have the best biscuits and gravy in the city, so I'll definitely be going there ASAP.

Other than that, I must get something done today because I've been wildly unproductive thus far. Hopefully I'll be getting a job SOMETIME but for now I'll just sit at the greatest coffee shop ever and try to complete this task.

True for you and truth will lead you

Okay, so some people I really love are either already in a foreign land or will be arriving shortly. Thus, I have decided to perhaps make my blog into more of a land where domestic goings-on can be displayed so that the CorpsKids can keep up.

In that vein, I wanted to discuss Lindsay Lohan. Rumor has it that she's been carpet-diving with Samantha Ronson. While this is not new, I heard on the radio this morning that there is marriage talk now that California has decided to live up to its LiberalerThanThou reputation. My guess is that the paparazzi has just got nuts with the actual pictures of the two making out and have jumped to the wedding talk because its sexy.

Speaking of the pictures, all the paparazzi folk have been touting this one as the best evidence of Linds' lesbot tendencies:

However, don't you think this one is a better indication that Linds and Sammy are in true love?:

I know that the whole "true love" vibe is not necessarily what the press is going for but don't they look downright precious in this one? I also know that there are some Sam-haters out there, but it seems (from my intricate and personal knowledge) that Linds is happy with her dirty DJ and there's no reason to hate on what seems like a sort of normal relationship.

However, obviously, attractive women must be involved in torrid affairs instead of it being actually legitimate, so pictures serve a much better purpose when they show her doing something naughty. Still, I'd say those two getting married would be one of the most exciting pop culture happenings in a long while. Not to mention, it would totally fulfill the lesbian u-haul stereotype, which is always a good time.

I rode my bicycle past your window last night

My middle school dream is coming true.

I don't know if you've heard, but Beverly Hills, 90210 (aka BEST SHOW EVER) is going to have a spinoff in the fall season. Included as a cast member will be Jennie Garth (aka Kelly Taylor; aka reason I'm a lesbian) which makes this the most anticipated show perhaps of my entire life.

They've dropped off the "Beverly Hills" part of the title to call it just 90210 which is totally awesome. I can't even wait. What's better than high school drama that makes fun of rich people while at the same time lauds them? Nothing, that's what.

Okay, maybe $5 footlongs. Those are fucking awesome, too.

Oh man! And Sex and the City comes out on Friday! That rules.

Okay, I'll stop with the stream of consciousness.

Inaugural B&G Review: Keys Cafe, Downtown St. Paul

At the request of my millions of fans (read: Wanda), I have decided to introduce a feature to the blog that explores the wonders of one particular food group ("group" being used extremely liberally) that I believe I have enough knowledge to be touted as an expert on:

Biscuits and Gravy.

Growing up, one of the best parts about going to my grandma's house was her uncanny ability to create the best sausage biscuits and gravy that have ever been eaten on this planet. Since childhood, I'd say biscuits and gravy have always been at least on the Top 5 Delicious Eats list.

I pretty much ALWAYS order them at restaurants, and with breakfast being my favorite restaurant meal, I'd say I eat biscuits and gravy quite a bit more often than the regular human. Not to mention, most of my friends are vegetarians, which distinctly limits your B&G options.

So, this weekend I had 'em at Keys Cafe in Downtown St. Paul. I should note that I usually find Keys to be somewhat overrated. So, while the B&G were okay and totally not disgusting, they certainly weren't something to write home to grandma about. As is often the problem, the gravy was too thick and the biscuit was too dry. Additionally, while there was sausage in the gravy, there were no sausage patties just for eating. Also, I had to order my eggs on the side, so in all the breakfast was probably around 11 dollars and included: 2 biscuits covered in gravy, 2 eggs over easy, and hashbrowns. Adding to that the fact that the biscuits were too dense and dry and the gravy was sort of goupy and too thick, you can see that while Key's may have delicious hashbrowns, the overall experience was lacking.

In the future, I'll have pictures of the delicious-ness/disgusting-osity so you can see what I started with.

I said what you wanted to hear

I woke up at 6:30 this morning and couldn't go back to sleep so I decided to just get up and go to the coffee shop real early like. When I walked in, Ben Folds Five was playing on the radio, a really old song from their first album, and any feelings of regret for leaving my warm bed so early immediately evaporated.

I'm currently listening to Pandora (what's new?) while the Attack of the Cretin Derham Hall kids occurs at the counter. I know its asshole-y of me, but high school students, on the whole, drive me nuts. Okay, that's not true. Rich, pretentious, 17-18 year olds on their cell phones drive me nuts. Like, honestly? Do you think I want to hear about your sexual encounter from last night? Because that's what I'm listening to right now. And it's been going on for the last 35 minutes. At first, I'll admit, it was a little interesting to hear about how third base worked out for you. But at this point, it's just awkward for everyone.

In other news, I wish I was going to Chicago this weekend. Kari and I tried to figure out a way to get to Kato's going away shindig, but my lack of employment made such a trip fairly irresponsible. Dammit, though, because I love Chicago, I love Kato, and I love Kato's family. Stupid jobless summer...

I'm supposed to be reading endless amounts of documents right now for an imaginary homework assignment that I've more or less assigned to myself. Alas, such responsibility is difficult when there's poker to be played and blogs to be written. In a related side note, big ups to Mucha for lending me her computer while mine is at Dad's Fix-it Shop. No computer = crazy Karly. Plus, theoretically, people with jobs contact me through here, so I don't like to be away for too long.

I should probably go check for my grades for the 20th neurotic time today. Super way to pass the time.

Precious little life to guide and lead

Life has been a little crazy this week!

Along with finishing finals on Monday, my sister also had her baby!!!! Kiernan Colleen is her name and cuteness is her game. My sister and brother in law's blogs are both linked here, so you should go check them out because I'm sure they'll have pictures up soon! However, I'll have you know that she is totally soft and squishy and awesome.

I think I might have a job interview tomorrow, but we'll see. I can't keep getting my hopes up because I'll go crazy.

In other news, Kari and I have been watching The Tudors, which is totally awesome and everyone should watch it. Granted, I'm a total sucker for 16th century period films, but this one has the added joy of being a Showtime show, which means it has copious amounts of needless sex, which is always a good time.

So, um, yeah. Not much exciting stuff is going on besides that. :)
