maybe because my party clothes are so binding

Alicia Silverstone spoke the stone-cold gospel truth when she said "I know it sounds mental, but sometimes I have more fun vegging out than when I go partying."

Because if I were out then I would have missed out on my mother, who yes, is in fact a member of Facebook, telling the story of how she was inadvertently invited to a toga party at State. More specifically, I would have missed the immortal and completely serious quote:

"The invitation said togas mandatory, but because it's winter in Michigan that pants are allowed. I find that quite considerate."

And I also would have missed out on spending an hour watching TV starring my favorite newly engaged couple. I love Mandy Moore. Just adore her. I feel like she would be really excellent to go to Anthropologie with, and I'd try on a $78 t-shirt and feel all sorts of yuppie guilt about wanting to purchase something so silly but she'd not only talk me into it by telling me how awesome I look and how much I'll wear it but will be so convincing that I will somehow feel right with humanity about buying something so incredibly self-indulgent.

Okay, I'm leaving my apartment now.

I definately can picture that. It's great.

No guilt afterwards at all. She's a doll.

Mandy Moore, Joe Schmoe, whomever...it takes about .26 seconds for me to find something at Anthropologie and buy it, I don't care who is telling me who awesome I look in my fabulous $78 shirt. But of course, if Mandy Moor was there, I could say "i got this at anthropologie...with Zach Braff's future wife. Biotches!"

Well, she was pretty great in "Saved." And Anthropologie rocks. And I do love the Zach Braff... Okay, she can stay.
