Jordan Reid Berkow Strauch, shillshacklesham dot bomb, is doing this tonight:
I am a cat, in case you couldn’t tell. A pot-roast-eating, candy-handing-out cat. (My mom enticed us over with the promise of comfort food and trick-or-treaters.)
Ohhhhh…you’re a cat. I thought maybe you were just a Peter Criss fail, or a bunny gone wrong. But no, you’re a totally adorbz wittle kitteh!
Also, you are almost 30. Just saying.
The Quirks aren’t the only scary thing on the internet tonight. In other spooky news, Julia Allison went with “Sexy Browser” for this year’s Halloween sadfail:
My insane Firefox costume from Yandy.com … Not. Subtle.
She also apparently jumped off a building or something. Because she wants attention and nobody is looking at her anymore. Wow just wow, locking my door and turning off my television now, lest Julia Allison climb out of a well and through my tv and make my face look like hers.
And so it begins. Soon to retire “style blogger” Jessica Schroeder Quirk has just announced “That’s Quirky!“, the blog to read for all your ugly rugs, terrible grammar, and who gives a crap what else.
There is so much to see I don’t even know where to start! Do I begin with “Our Yard” or maybe “Inspiration”??? How about “Our House” which is all about their house?
Anyway, I think this is great. It’s just more proof that Messica is growing less and less interested in jumping around in flapper outfits and getting closer to becoming the obscure mommy blogger she clearly longs to be. She’s already started random twitter campaigns @ing established mommy bloggers, and soon I’m sure we will see tweets like “hey @homedepot we could use some gift cards!”
It’s kind of sad if you think about it too long.
Emily Gould, world’s nicest and most emotionally stable person, has once again decided that because she worked at Gawker – did you guys know she worked at Gawker for about 15 minutes 90 years ago? – where she talked shit about people, she is amply qualified to tell Gawker they have no place talking shit about people:
To whom it may concern
Okay, so what you’re saying is:
1. It’s ok – no, it’s good — to “out” people who privately behave in a way that’s inconsistent with their public personae.
2. Nick Denton gets to decide what the words “private,” “public” and “inconsistent” mean.
Yeah, I don’t know, guys. I don’t think you get paid enough to have to think that.
What’s wrong, Ghoul? Tao Lin not returning your calls? Your Buckingham Nicks Greatest Hits cd get lost during your last trip to Italy? Can’t decide on that next tattoo? Or just feeling particularly hypocritical today?
Midwest Messica Mrs. @Quirk finally gets to see her book!!!!!
Fed Ex just arrived with the hardcopies of the interior of my book design!! IT LOOKS AMAZING!!!!!!! I AM SO THRILLED!!!!about 1 hour ago via web
And today’s post from this professional writer…
The equestrian books and olive pants feel very forest ranger to me, but I like it! I live in the woods right now!
She lives in the woods now. FASHION! BUY HER BOOK!!!!!!
Midwest Messica, of a town in the Midwest, will not be outdone in the shameless begging department! After her twitter campaign for free Oscar de la Renta resulted in a flurry of de la Renta PR people sending her a crate of freebies (that happened, right? no? oh), Jessica has decided to try again:
Seriously, I am disgusted by this shameless namedropping, hoping the companies will see it and send money. I think the only way to calm down from this rage is with a nice chilled glass of Franzia, a delicious delivery of extra sharp cheddar and cat food from FreshDirect, and some new clothes from OldNavy.com. You beg bloggers revolt me.
Mary Rambin, branding expert consultant and writer, has been working hard. Between phone calls and googling she barely has time to hit the gym for 90 minutes a day. Luckily, her MacBook died yesterday, forcing her to get some much needed relaxation:
Life is really nice when the computer is broken, the tv is off, and you can take a second to soak in your favorite things. If the weight of the world is lifted, even if only for a minute, I am thankful to have that time of peace. I never take it for granted
Isn’t that nice? She is grateful for those endless hours of laying in the sun during her free vacation.
In other news, attention, Steve Jobs and wealthy readers: Mary Rambin would be happy to add whatever the latest Mac laptop type product is to her list of things to review. Just send it along to her (gratis, of course) and she will be sure to write it up on her successful lifestyle blog!
