The List Volume VI

By |May 28th, 2010|The List|


Thank goodness we have a long weekend… cause it sure has been a long week.

  1. The poles with buttons you are supposed to push to cross the street. They’re bullshit. Nothing ever happens. They’re just there to make you think they care.78405618
  2. People who bump/bodyslam into you on the street and don’t apologize. We aren’t doing tackle drills. Relax.
  3. Men in bandanas. The only men who can pull off  bandanas are Smitty and Bret Michaels: DSCN0112
  4. Smacking trees and other inanimate objects when running. Is this a Foursquare check in I didn’t know about?
  5. Office birthday cake. I don’t even wanna celebrate with you, so don’t judge me when I don’t indulge in your shitty cake. If I’m gonna splurge, it’s going to be on Strip House’s Famous Chocolate Cake.Striphouse__ChocolateCAke2_v1_13_-_Version_2
  6. Katy Perry’s new song, California Gurls. A) you spelled it wrong. B) it sucks. C) No, it’s not cause I’m biased.
  7. Shrapnel that flies off the streets of NY rendering me blind and incidentally causing me to be one of the jerks who doesn’t know how to walk properly on the sidewalk.
  8. Parents who make their kids wear Crocs. Just cause you ruined your life doesn’t mean you should ruin theirs. kellytaylors1
  9. Twitter. I think I’m over you. Apparently, no one cares what I have to say (seeing as I have the same # of followers as I did in 2008) and it really hurts my feelings when someone “unfollows” me. Did I say something to offend you?
  10. Jesse James. Shut. Up.

Enjoy the holiday, kiddos. Don’t forget your sunscreen and headphones to block out the incessant babble of those around you.



Happy Ho-lloween.

I love costumes. Give me a reason to wear one and I’m THERE.  Seriously, ask my bf. He’s come home many times to a sassy secretary or desperate housewife.  Well, Halloween is just around the corner, so I thought I’d give some helpful costume suggestions.  I tried to dig up some of my all time favorites of my own, but didn’t have much luck.

For Groups:

Football team (or another sports team): We did this years ago and it was a big hit copied for several years after. We literally came up with a team name (the Vixens), mascot (a fox), and put numbers and nicknames on the back.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Yeah, we attempted to do this one year. While I thought it was brilliant, not everyone was ecstatic about the green unitards from American Apparel.  I still think it’s hilarious and would make an amazing group costume.

Cast of Sex and the City: Kind of tame, but pretty easy to pull off. However, there may be a dispute over who gets to be Carrie and who gets stuck as Miranda.

Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian: Tight dresses, padded derrieres, and don’t forget the baby bump for Kourtney.

Bret Michaels and Rock of Love Girls: Um, amazing. Enough said.

Flying Solo:

Lady Gaga: there will probably be a ton of these, but any good reason to wear a blonde wig and leotard should be taken advantage of.

Ana Wintour: (a slutty Ana) is kind of amazing. Get a sweet bob wig and some big black glasses.

Vampire: (a slutty one, obviously). If you aren’t feeling too adventurous, jump on the vampire bandwagon. For some reason, don’t ask me why, people are totally vampire crazy.

Devil in a Blue Dress: This actually came from my mom (clever as always). It’s perfect for a more tame Halloween party or somewhere that you don’t want your entire abdomen showing.  Get a cute blue dress and devil horns, voila!


Pam and Jim from The Office: Not particularly sexy, but who doesn’t love Pam and Jim?

Jon and Kate (Plus 8): This could be pretty brilliant. You may have to stop by the local Toys R Us and pick up some dolls, and you will probably lose several throughout the night, but that makes it an even better costume.

Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf: Pretty self explanatory, no?

Each Other: This could be really funny. Dress like each other and exaggerate their characteristics. This could also prove to be very good couple’s therapy.

Happy haunting!



Why Did You Wear That: If the Bus is a-Rockin’…

By |April 15th, 2009|Celebrity Style, Why Did You Wear That?|

We all have our guilty pleasures and ridiculous reality dating shows are mine.  I seriously can’t get enough.  One of my very favorites, Rock of Love Bus with Bret Michaels, has recently come to an end (tear) and in honor of this, I thought I would highlight some of the girls’ stellar fashion choices.

Rock of Love Bus (the third installment) is by far my favorite!  It is so bad that it’s good. VH1 never ceases to amaze me! They just keep cranking out these genius shows showcasing mentally unstable people and gratuitous T & A.  Thank you, VH1 for rotting my brain and giving me useless things to talk about at cocktail parties.

rock Halloween costume alert- go as the cast of the Rock of Love Bus!  This is too easy. Careful though, get separated from your friends and “Bret” and you may be mistaken for just your standard “call girl.” (more…)
