wan-na find something?

ohemgee. so. extremely. bitter.

the bean's birthday party is this weekend.

i'm planning on making cute candy centerpieces similar to this:

pink and green are the colors of choice. so i've got gobs of pink and green paper plates, plastic cutlery, napkins, cups, blah, blah, blah. and a few weeks ago, i found these lollipops that would be absolutely PERFECT as the focal point in those centerpieces.

totally perfect, right? and even better - candy warehouse, where i found them online, is located not far from home. i could totally pick them up and save on shipping. bonus!

and then i called this morning to place the order. as i was talking to the girl, i pulled up the item on their site, and...


OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG. i am so unbelievably irritated and pissed off at myself for not being proactive (a word i HATE) and ordered them when i originally found the damn things. i should've learned long ago that my typical procrastinating ways DON'T PAY OFF!

fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuckity fuck fuck fuck. oh, and FUCK!!!

i can't figure out who the manufacturer of these things are, so i can't go direct. and the only other place i can find them is on the east coast. and as much as i want them, i don't think i can squeeze out the zillion dollars it's bound to cost to have them overnighted, or even 2-day shipped.

on top of all this, my fabulous flat iron won't turn on and my hair looks like complete ass if i don't flatiron it.

sonofamotherfuckingasswhoreshittybitch!! i want to throw things.

note: i'm fully aware that i could get the regular, rainbow-colored lollipops. but i. want. those. I. WANT. THE. PINK. AND. GREEN. ONES. DAMMIT!

[deep breath] wooo-saaaaah. wooo-saaaaaaaah (i just saw "bad boys II" again this weekend).

it's not working. i'm still angry. gymboree is gonna be hella fun today.


  1. Sorry about the lollipops - hope you find a replacement!

  2. I will whisper something in your ear for you to keep in mind:

    She's one and won't remember, and your guests won't care one way or another about lollipop centerpieces.


  3. Maybe if you go visit the candy store they'll have something similar? I hope you find what you want!

  4. I'm sure whatever replacement you have found will be just as fabulous.

  5. have you tried Rocky Mountain Chocolate?

  6. uh oh, step away from the ledge.

    and I agree with the monkey - no one will care! but I know that doesn't make you feel better.

  7. It will be fantastic no matter what. Rainbow's got pink and green too, right?

  8. I want your life if this is the big issue for the day. Seriously.

    LMAO WeeMo.

  9. Sorry folks, I totally understand why you care so much, cuz I would too :) How about getting some pink lollipops and some green lollipops, and put them in the same pot?

  10. i'm glad you found a cute replacement. :)

  11. Hi try Garvey Candy in Pico Rivera - Candy Warehouse buys all thier candy from them and they are much cheaper garveycandy.com

  12. Oops, I didn't realize buying all those pink and green lollipops online last week would cause such a stir... ;)

  13. Okay I'm a terrible friend and still have that Rolling Stone in my "to mail" pile. However, I'm going to make up for it by sending along those containers the lollypops are in - I have 5 of them. I promise to send them out next week, as soon as we get home.

  14. dahahahahahaha. that is all.

    yes, still love even as i am laughing at/with you. and also because we know how i get with colors and events.

  15. My equally crazy ass understand exactly what you are saying. You know I would hunt down those lollipops for you if I could!

    WeeMo is right in a practical sense. No one will know that there was an option and they'll think it's fabulous. Well, almost no one there will know. ;)


i heart comments. i wan-na hear what you have to say.
um, i think.

squeezing in all the sightseeing

this was our NYC home for a whole week: it was one of only a few hotels that i could find that offered two beds in a room rather than, say, ...
