The time is meow

Well hello. Are you familiar with this masterpiece of a music video?

Are you familiar with this beverage?
pabst

If you mix these two things for several hours and happen to be me, you will get this as a result:

I was going to write more…but I think that’s enough.
Oh actually, there is more. I am wearing the same “outfit” from this post:

What I wore to work – the laid off edition

Do you know who always looks great?
where is waldo
Yup. That guy.

Do you know what I also have an affinity for?

Bears (and Bear Ambulances)

Bears (and Bear Ambulances)

What happens when it is the end times at work? The “last days of Rome” days at work? I’ll end up at my office dressed like Where’s Waldo, pulling up that iconic sweater, in front of a statue of bear…that happens to be parked in front of my boss’s office.

Go ahead...fire me.

Go ahead…fire me. I bear ya!

In celebration of more than one holiday at once

There are times when it isn’t enough to celebrate just one holiday at one time. So when Cinco de Mayo and Star Wars day are back to back it just seems more appropriate to meld them together:

Happy Cinco de Star Wars

Work Attire

Some offices have corporate casual. I think my office does as well. I have chosen to ignore the corporate part of that sentiment and focus on the casual. Sometimes I am so casual in the morning while dressing that I just randomly pick clothes off of the floor. And I end up coming to work in a t-shirt that is an homage to the Disney movie about singing dancing  news boys

Oh – you know!

So, I wore my Newsies t-shirt to work. But this shirt not only was emblazoned with “Never fear, Brooklyn is here!” but also completely covered in my blood. From when I fell. On my face. Incredibly hard.  The blood clots changed the charming Disney sentiment  from one of encouragement to menace.

Carry the banner, ya'll!

Donnie Wahlberg jeans

There are many incredible things that I was tardy to the party for: The Wire, the awesomeness of video games, orgasms. Despite the depression that comes with finding amazing things late in the game, I would be a less of a person had I never discovered them. This brings me to the most important discovery of my adult life.

During the entirety of my youth I was completely unaware of a certain phenomenon sweeping the land. It was called “the boy band.” I, too, had a boy band phase as a child. For this band:

Peter Tork, you’re so fine!

I was under the impression that the Monkees were a contemporary band (during the 90s) and therefore lauded my admiration for them, endlessly watching taped re-runs of the show on our Beta Max. If you were still wondering, yes I did live a very sheltered life.

However, most well adjusted tweens during this time were sacrificing to the alter of a much more popular god:

Those hats, that hair!

I was completely unaware of this group, or any of their songs, until my boyfriend introduced me to this song at the age of twenty-six:

(spoiler alert: Donnie Walhberg eats a baseball at the end of the video!).

This started my obsession, sixteen years late, with New Kids on the Block. I am so bummed that I missed out on the cultural phenomenon that was NKOTB. They are like a bizarre sociology experiment (I love you, Jordan!) that at one point covered the Delfonics.

they also fuck the air in front of a room full of children

My greatest obsession is with how they dress, and like any teenage devotee I decided to try and emulate their style.

or drink late in the night, wearing over-sized overalls and trying to do the dance moves from Step by Step

Bolstered by those late night dancing sessions I decided to Donnie Wahlberg my jeans

Damn.

Step 1 (we can have lots of fun) Take your jeans and attempt acid washing (tub, chlorine, and rubbing). Mine only dyed to a lighter blue

Step 2 (There’s so much we can do!) attempt fraying process. I started off with scissors.

Step 3 (It’s just you and me!): Scissors didn’t work. I then used a cheese grater.

Step 4 (I can give you more!): Cheese grater was not working. I used an exacto knife, which gave me the best results, also time consuming.

Step 5  (don’t you know that the time has arrived!). I gave up and then just cut holes into the jeans and pulled on the strings.

You too can look like a New Kid. Hang tough, ya’ll.
