Just another one of those damn overachieving lawyer type blogger men who I have crushes on. Damn them all. Nice piece!
Oh, the continuing saga.
Seriously, this is good stuff. Williams is cleaning house and not afraid to stand up to Mr. Rumore. And I think we all know what Jennifer thinks about THAT.
MY ONLY POINT OF THIS POST RELATES TO THIS QUOTE:
Williams sticks by calling Rumore a liar
“Phil Rumore was called a liar,” Barton said. “He [Williams] said he doesn’t give a damn about children. He cursed. He was profane. I’m the only lady among the union presidents. I don’t need to be exposed to that.”
C’mon. “I’m the only LADY?” Is this necessary in today’s world? Does it matter if you are a lady or not? Does it matter if there was another lady in the room? I think it is about being professional. I can’t stand when gender is brought into it. In my view, it is not about a lady being present, it is about being professional. And as much as I agree with Williams, one must always be careful to be a professional, or apologize when sometimes the circumstances get to the best of you. I think this should be the NEW Buffalo way.
“BlogDay was created with the belief that bloggers should have one day dedicated to getting to know other bloggers from other countries and areas of interest. On that day Bloggers will recommend other blogs to their blog visitors. With the goal in mind, on this day every blogger will post a recommendation of 5 new blogs. In this way, all Blog web surfers will find themselves leaping around and discovering new, previously unknown blogs.”
So who did All Things Jen(nifer) pick for her BLOG DAY 5? Check them out!
This is one of the first blogs I feel in love with at sight. Lawren keeps me informed and up-to-date on the juicy stuff! And happens to be an Esquire as well A must read.
Karol is cool. Karol is a REPUBLICAN who lives in NYC and has red hair. I heart Karol.
3. (Check out blog #3 in my comment section below)
What I am trying to say is, comment! And then tell me why I love reading your blog
Jess is cool. Ursus introduced me to her. She writes for Cosmo and I want to be her friend in real life. The end.
Oooh. If you have a rant, rant it here. And then go and comment on the other peevers peeves and laugh at their misfortune. A great find, brought to me by Jen.
“That was far too much walking, for far too little sandwich.”
So I shall throw out the big words. Ready?
Jennifer Presumption: Idiot and/or Punk.
Now you can overcome this presumption with only a *preponderance of the evidence* standard of proof in my book.
For example, holding an intelligent conversation with the person sitting next to you on the bus-overcomes this presumption. (But still confuses the hell out of me.) Or perhaps, a certificate of membership in the MENSA organization. Presumption right out the window. But for the most part, I just look at you and think…idiot. Or punk. I wish this fad would die. Now. Die the death of acid washed jeans…never to come back.

“In preparing to host this weekâ€™s RINO Sightings, I indulged in a bit of research into our counterpart the rhino. In doing so, I discovered where we RINOs get our moderate reputation because our animal counterpart is a gentle giant, despite his aggressive reputation. Donâ€™t let his size fool you into thinking heâ€™s slow, though, because rhinos are agile blokes and are quite the chargers when needed â€” just like their human counterparts. And because of their size, adult rhinos have no natural predators, although babies are at risk from tigers, lions, or hyenas â€” and you can expect RINOs to be equally protective of the young and underdogs.
I also delved into the totemic meaning of rhinos and discovered they carry the spiritual medicine of connecting to ancient wisdom and of its proper use, as well as knowledge of the self. As you can clearly see, that means everyone should pay particular attention to what we RINOs say because we know aboutâ€¦wellâ€¦damn near everything.”
Oh lovely day!
My one class starts tonight.
I am going to try to meet with financial aid this afternoon before class, leaving work early. MIGHT be good news on this front, I heard from the registrar this morning, and I *might* be able to *maybe* do something to save myself something. I do not want to speak too soon…I shall not speak too soon in fact. Shhhh. Just think happy thoughts for me.
AND of course, I came into work today feeling quite girly and PINK! I am wearing a new skirt that I bought for $7 while shopping at the Grove City outlets! My Mary had her family bridal shower this weekend in Pittsburgh, so I found myself south of the border in the land of no sales tax! OF COURSE I have little to oh yeah NO money, but sometimes, a frilly pink flowery skirt for $7 is just too much to pass up! And let me tell you, I have the HUGEST smile on my face today because of it And well, other things…ahem. But that is one of the reasons! Perhaps this study about coffee is another reason, I made mine extra strong this morning!
Anyhow, my friend Chris, brought me her new issue of the September VOGUE today! Which is another reason why I am smiling smiling! I have not yet had the chance to delve into the 5 pound beast! Although I really have found that over the past year, I actually *know* and recognize designers I enjoy! MUCH to Erin’s confusion, as she found out when I was excited about stopping at the BCBG Max Azria outlet. Such pretty clothes! (One of the designers I enjoy, as well is Nanette Lepole) It helped when I was dating John, who actually took me into the fancy department stores where I touched my first Kate Spade purse. And knowing Ursus who works several shows in NYC during Fashion Week has upped my knowledge as well!
Oh and by the way Chris is a new BUFFALO blogger, so welcome her to the mix! Welcome!!!
Artvoice has the Best of Buffalo Top 3 in the current issue.
I would like to offer a WORSE of moment.
WORSE SERVICE in BUFFALO.
1. Cole’s- Forget about it. The Clancy is one of my most favourite sandwiches in Buffalo, but it takes at least 2 hours to get one and pay for it. Love the place, but don’t go if you have to be somewhere, ANYWHERE.
2. Cozumel- SAME situation. Although those margaritas on the rocks with salt make you less aware of the terrible service you are getting…and sometimes you can get the hot, young waiter and although you may never get more chips/salsa and water, you can smile at the view.
3. TOWNE- Towne is my favorite egg sandwich place. I love it. I lived in Allentown for a few years and Towne was the place I went for everything. I love it. Love it. Love it. EXCEPT for the one waitress. YOU ALL KNOW WHO SHE IS. The WORSE waitress ever. And I felt bad and cut her some slack the first 5 times I had her, but MY GOD. If I know she is my waitress, I will get up and move out of her section. OF COURSE today, me and my itchy middle and painful blister, I walked a few blocks to Rust Belt Books on my lunch break to look for the new Buffalo Spree. The Buffalo Spree was not there. BUT Towne was right there. I waited 10 minutes and saw NO ONE even close to waiting on me. So I had to leave. I only have an hour for lunch! And then I saw her….the little old lady, clueless as ever approaching the table next to me waiting to pay a bill. OH YEAH out of there.
So I did not get a lunch after all. Boo hiss.
What about you? Terrible service? TELL ME ABOUT IT!
