To-go is the new go-to

Posted by AllieB on September 1, 2011

I am so excited for this weekend I can hardly stand it. 

Firstly, it’s already Thursday. This week has flown by.

Secondly, I got a ticket to the game and I’m sitting with people I genuinely like..! Don’t worry, I’ll pace myself and we’ll all have an awesome time.

Thirdly, it’s not 98 degrees.

I went to El Azteca last night. I knocked over so many glasses that the waiter offered to bring me my next beverage in a sippie cup :| It just wasn’t my night, so I wound up getting my food to go. To-go, Sista tells me, is the new go-to.

Check out my “Check these out” column to the right – I’ve added some new additions worthy of your attention, including Picks of the Week of which I am already a huge fan and is especially timely given the time of year it is. Read: football season! I also added a link to my astrology source. See, BBT appeals to the masses.

If you goog “Georgia Bulldogs hot girl” you are in for some surprises, and not all of them are good.

Clearly, I am anticipating not posting tomorrow, so consider this your weekend send-off…

xoxo, BBT

 I wonder if I alienated any of my readers…?

Road Trip!

Posted by AllieB on May 26, 2011

Pants, Pal and I are sojourning to Tybee Island, GA this weekend to visit Hilbilly. It’s going to be ah-MAH-zing. Part of the time the three of them will gang up me, which I will handle graciously and with dignity, then the tables will turn on Pal for a bit because she’ll wander off into some souvenir store and come back with a pet goldfish or similar…with the all-star add-ons of NBJones, EJones, and YKenna, I’m pretty sure this Memorial Day Weekend will lend itself to some very fond memories.

Credit: Hilary. So ugly it’s funny…?

God bless our country and those who serve our country. Also, three day weekends.

By the by, I’m currently sitting outside at Starbucks working. I am a huge fan of my new employment.

The list is long, but distinguished

Posted by AllieB on May 13, 2011

Let’s jump right in. There is a lot going on today:

  1. Top Gun Day
  2. Friday the 13th
  3. Happy Birthday to my future husband, Prince Carl Philip of Sweden!!

80’s humor is so cheesy. I love reading movie and tv quotes – Pal, Hilary, and I spent the better part of Tuesday with 30 Rock, and it was one of the more entertaining afternoons I’ve had – but the things we laugh at these days are very different than what we were laughing at 25 years ago:

Carole: Hey Goose you big stud!
Goose: That’s me, honey.
Carole: Take me to bed or lose me forever.
Goose: Show me the way home, honey.

I hope I don’t use the word “stud” in a sentence this weekend. Sorry I’m not sorry, Tom Cruise was HOT in Top Gun. Especially in this pic, where you can just appreciate his hotness (I love a man in uniform) without having to think about the fact that he’s a borderline dwarf.

I’m too lazy to be superstitious, so I don’t much care about Friday the 13th. I also hate scary movies, except for the Scary Movie series. Anna Faris is a real gem.

I guess this picture is decidedly not relevant for today, but I think it’s really funny. He looks so defeated :(

Happy Birthday, Prince Carl!!! He is 32 today, if my math is correct, which means he’s probably 33. That is the perfect age gap for a couple, IMO. Have I taken this a bit far? I’ll tell you, lots of people land on BBT by goog’ing “Prince Carl Philip” or some variation thereof, and now that I’ve put his name in quotes even more will…I wonder if he’s the kind of guy who goog’s himself. He probably has people to do that for him. If this is the case, then, To Whom It May Concern: please know that I am completely normal and would make an excellent Princess (reference: Kate Middleton).

This is funny: Fergie’s daughters, who probably kind of suck anyway (they must, they wore THAT to the most important event in the history of important events), really do look like the evil step sisters from Cinderella!! It’s as though they planned it. They probably thought they were being cute :|

“My a** is perfection” – Samantha Jones, SATC

Incidentally, so is Pippa Middleton’s. At least according to this Facebook page that has garnered over 150,000 “likes” since creation on Friday. Put that in your pocket for a rainy day, Pippa – that ain’t bad.

I do feel like I dropped the ball on my wedding coverage with the major gaffe of heralding Chelsey Davy’s appearance – she looked like a sloppy hot mess. Retract. I am DYING over Kate’s second dress – not because I like the angora balero, but because she looked stunning overall…Pippa continued her glam-a-thon with both her second dress (like, don’t love, but again – stunning) and her adorbs day after outfit. Kate’s an old married lady now, welcome to BBT’s new obsession: Pippa. Heck, the whole family has me wrapped around their finger.

From left (all from

  1. famous derriere
  2. second dress by Alice Temperley
  3. Saturday morning leaving The Goring – I need that blazer

OK, I think it’s time to move on…for today.

Cut to: Sweetwater Brewery, locale for my Ten Year High School Reunion. I was very startled to realize that Romy & Michelle’s High School Reunion was about their tenth hs reunion…startled, alarmed, angry, and unsettled. It made me feel the opposite of young – remember how OLD they always seemed!? Whatevs, it’s stupid to compare one’s own life with that of two fictional movie characters, ya know? Like, what good can come from that? Here is the sole photo from the Smilebooth photo booth-esque thing which I will share on BBT. Smilebooth + me = MORTAL ENEMIES.


Like I said, I hate Smilebooth.

Apropos of nothing, read this little article about how delightful Amy Poehler is – because she absolutely is, for many reasons, and not just because she laughed (in a non-malicious way) at Blake Lively.

She was on the scene when Patrick McMullan accidentally ripped the train of Blake Lively’s dress, gleefully crying out, “You ripped her dress! Patrick, you ripped her dress!” as if it were the greatest, most wonderful thing that had ever happened.

Also, Parks & Recreation is HILAR.

I concur.

Liz Lemon drops incredible truth bombs on a weekly basis.

As I mentioned recently, I love the horoscopes. The weekend forecast for Gemini is pretty lousy – something about hanging out with people who might not necessarily be “the cool kids” (total nonsense  – I don’t know anyone who’s not cool), but K’s was amazing and completely un-Cancer-esque, so I will share it. I think we all, regardless of astrological sign, should embrace this sage advice:

It’s time to bust out the sequins and sky-high Louboutins, and party like a rockstar once again….Raise the hemline on your costume, and drop the neckline…this is your socially-sanctioned opportunity to let your inner Snooki soar.

That’s right. Let your inner Snooki soar. I’ve got the other stuff  down pat – in fact, I recently acquired a very mini skirt (tights required) and sequined top that fit nicely within these parameters. I’m only missing the Louboutins…sigh. If I could have but one pair of shoes for the rest of my life, it would be these. TINA – still waiting on that million dollar idea.

Oh – and The Partner’s Card starts today!

Happy Weekend! XOXO – Allie Bark Twice Baxter
