[LINKED] Shameless Self-Promotion

In case you missed it (what, you don't track my every move?), I wrote an apology letter to New York City over at Fucked in Park Slope.

The basis for it was that there are a million douchey love letters to New York City out there, written by Carrie Bradshaw wannabes that include sentences like "LOL thanks for having every form of take-out ever because I use my stove as a place to store all of my shoes!"  Guess what, girls?  That's not charming or New York-y, that's what the scientific community would classify as a "borderline hoarder tendencies."

There are also a bunch of irreverent "manuals" to living in New York City, which are usually plastered all over the Facebook pages of girls you went to high school with who love cupcakes.  They say things like, "picture hearing a man playing the saxophone outside your bedroom window. End up hearing a lot of sirens instead. Figure it’s okay because it’s New York and you’re still so happy to be here."

Yeah, okay. 

What it comes down to is that while New York is a giant asshole, so are you.  Maybe it's time to apologize.

And though I'm someone who has literally apologized to more than one person by quoting lyrics from Ruben Studdard's "Sorry 2004," (what I'm trying to say here is that apologies are not my strong suit), I think it might be time to try to apologize to New York.  For all of my drunken shenanigans, for all of the complaining, for EVERYTHING.

[GIFTED] Cast of Vices Jewelery

Well, this collection sure brings new meaning to the word "drug ring," right? LOL OMG.

No, seriously, remember the last scene in Cruel Intentions when they're coming out of Ryan Phillipe's funeral and Sarah Michelle Gellar's father discovers that she keeps her coke in her crucifix necklace?  AWESOME.  

Why hide your vices?  Wear your heart on your sleeve and your addictions on your chest!  This Cast of Vices jewelry collection is all kinds of awesome.  Do you think they have an Intervention collection?

[GIFTED] Font Clock

Every morning, you get into a fight with your alarm clock. 

It goes off at 5AM because you're trying to trick yourself out of sleep.  You see 5AM, turn it off, and think, "Yes, one more precious hour of sleep left."

Then, it goes off at 6AM.  You're supposed to get up and go to the gym.  You start bargaining with yourself, because you know that you that if you don't go to the gym, you can sleep until 7:30.

"I'll go tonight after work," you say, as you turn off the alarm and roll over.  

You won't go.  You're lying to yourself.

Break promises to yourself and loved ones in style with this Font Clock ($345, Matter).
