a day in the life.

Many of you may be wondering, what IS it like to live a day in the shoes of Mary Campbell, (worst. blogger. ever.)? Well, my friends, in celebration of the fact that I just purchased a digital camera with my GF that is both portable and takes video footage, I am going to invite you into what was an exciting, adventurous day for me, yesterday, the 28th of December.

It started with coffee....well, sort of...it started with my graceful GF spilling my perfect Caribou latte on the Creative Loafing...a piece of local literary genius. Luckily, I have a pretty good sense of humor plus I wear burn resistant drawers so no harm was done. After that, we headed off to PepBoys auto shop were a gas cap was purchased and I bought some tear gas...for my safety. Watch out midtown, I am now armed with rapist-repellent. After this exciting journey, we went to the mall. GF needed some makeup so we visited the local Clinique counter where some face beautifier was purchased...after this, we visited the restroom where we rested, I dried my hands with the paper toliet-seat protectors and GF forgot her recently purchased makeup in the restroom stall...only to be realized and hour later. We then headed to Banana Republic to check out the sales and I tried on a really sweet hat that was a mere $130.00. When I start making the green, watch out people...I am going to be on the edge of fashion. After that, we made our way to the food court where we feasted on Atlanta's finest culinary delights: make-shift lebanese food. At about 2 hours, my mall-tolerance begins to wane and we decided that departing from this cultural treat would be in our best interest...plus, it was getting late and we still had plans on playing tennis. I haven't played tennis in a while, but still managed to hang on to my tennis skirt from high school...I used to play a lot...and, as you can see, my game face is still pretty serious. I was definitely a force to be reckoned with, though my GF and her more zen-inspired moves did give me a run for my money. Today, however, I am suffering from some minor sports injuries including a hurt right butt cheek, a sore forearm, and blisters on my hands and feet. I will probably not require any medical care, but flowers, candy or singing telegrams are always welcome. I feel pretty certain I will be recovered and ready for another match pretty soon. Please stay tuned. After this, we went to Taqueria del Sol for dinner with Audrey. She left for New York today and we had to have some chips and salsa and a celebratory margarita to send her off appropriately. Dinner was fun, we advised Audrey on New York fashion, being careful of people who might slip a *mickey* in her drink in the big city and the fun of eating knish (an Eastern European snack food popular in Jewish communities. A knish consists of a filling covered with dough that is either baked or fried. Knishes can be purchased from street vendors in urban areas with a large Jewish population, sometimes on a hot dog stand). Afterwards, we took some fun pics in the parking lot. I wanted to do the *prom pose* with Audrey which is why I have the silly expression on my face. I also enjoy making bunny ears behind people when I take photos with them. That is something that, in my book, never gets old. The day ended with watching the movie Dumb and Dumber and a video interview with the new camera. Film footage to be debuted soon.

Tania, I heard that. I can throw a snowball diagonally across this continent ya know.

MF and Mary, I have been visiting many blogs in the past few weeks, but your exchanges are still hilarious.

If you gals like fashion, such as moi, this blog is amazing -- in case you did not know about it (?):

t: impact is pretty much one of the worst fonts ever. it's one of those freebies and you can certainly see why. i liked to use it when i was 19 and first using the mac. sometimes things are so offensive, you just have to say something.

brand 'em' said...

But in defensive of Mary, if she was trying to make her tennis foto sporty like, Sports Illustrated uses Impact.

If that was her concept (?).

May I suggest Neville Brody's Industria?

i wouldn't look to sports illustrated for award-winning design.

aud said...

minus five said...

audrey: do NOT eat mexican food in ny. don't do it at all. you will die.

we'll hang out as soon as i get back. you'll have to give me a few days to recover from my family. i'm flying back up on the 3rd. good luck on your first day.

aud said...

minus five said...

Better go ahead and give her the entire list of forbidden words, MF.
