Foraying into New Jean Territory

I have been wearing Joe’s Jeans “The Cigarette” for as long as I can remember. I love them, I swear by them, I pimp them out to my friends as a quality recommendation, and I get a lot of compliments on my fantastic jeans. I typically frequent Loehmann’s or Nordstrom Rack for these gems rather than shoveling out $180 on the spot, and I’m telling you, I live in them. I swore I was going to be a Joe’s fan forever… until I hit Nordstrom Rack this weekend.

Then I discovered the greatness that is William Rast… I tried on a pair of their “Jerri” ultra skinny jeans in a medium-colored wash, and I was stunned. They fit like a glove, flattered my rear end, and- whoa- fit me better than my Joe’s. I found a pair for $80 (YAY), and I have been living in them ever since. So I’m not sure if I’m cheating on my Joe’s yet or really a William Rast convert. Only time will tell, I mean after I purchase another pair of course. Try both and let me know what you think. Which skinnies do you prefer?

Yes, There is a McDonald’s on McDonald Street.

I’m still interviewing for jobs. I tried some rice macaroni and cheese for lunch, but I’m not that impressed with it. It doesn’t really compare well to the classic Kraft kind.

We went out yesterday to a dive bar called The Sandbar just down the street from us for penny beers. On Wednesdays, they do penny beers at 10 pm until they run out of the kegs they use for it (no idea how many). Whatever it is, it is a bargain and they also have 1/2 off Hurricanes (categories 1-5 are all drink options, I went for a 3). Can’t help but wonder how Cameron is feeling today after that adventure with his classmate and his girlfriend.

I just returned from Merrick Village where I did not find the Joe’s Jeans “The Legging” I wanted. I got a pair in charcoal two weeks ago, which sent me on a mission for the second pair in a different color. Neiman Marcus also had them, but they were about $20 more expensive there and also not in the color I wanted. If you like style and comfort, I recommend trying on “The Legging”. They go with everything and flatter most body types. Just be careful, they’re tight and you have to watch what you wear underneath!

I’m previewing the new Lady Antebellum album, which comes out this Tuesday. It is not a sophomore slouch, so I am looking forward to purchasing it next week. Comcast came out again today and found that our connections rusted outdoors. How interesting, seeing as it was recently installed… thanks for not noticing. The menu for the evening is Quinoa rotini with plum tomatoes, feta, olive oil, minced garlic, zucchini, and bell pepper. The TV schedule is such: Vampire Diaries, Grey’s Anatomy, and then Project Runway. It’s been a while since I got to stare at the hot vampires on the show in HD. Since Thursday is most of the TV I watch, I had to select 3 options that Cameron wouldn’t want to watch since he’s going to sleep. We will watch 30 Rock and The Office online and surely there will be 40 Jersey Shore reruns by Sunday.

I need to find a sushi restaurant soon or I am going to have to purchase raw salmon at Publix and make rice and pretend I’m eating sushi back in Hermosa Beach.
