@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher OK I definitely want alpacas now. I'm picturing 3 alpacas, each with a toddler-sized howdah on its back.
How you know you're a Pinner:
Dude you're about to sleep with tells you he's a virgin. You honestly consider putting on the breaks and giving him Jia's email address.
@thatgirl You will be awesome. My undergrad degree is in European History and Russian, my masters is in International Relations. Umpteen years later, I'm a strategy consultant for major corporate clients and I tell them how to restructure their businesses and spend jillions of dollars on new intiatives.
All this to say, if I can do it, so can you!

Hey, @iceberg, do you watch Mad Men? There was a whole juice account imbroglio recently that broke down into a toddler-style tantrum--"I don't want HIS juice, I want MY juice!"--and reminded me of your BBWAYCTW posts.
@thatgirl Try to be more like the Bob Benson of advertising! Fake it til you make it. Congrats!

Bergy Bits, why are you crying this week?
My brother is looking at me.
All I did was stand in front of my sister so that my face was 1 inch away from hers, and she pushed me! The injustice.
I want to wipe my hands on the white cloth, not the blue cloth.
I don't want you to brush my hair. I LIKE looking like a cross between Shirley Temple and Young Einstein.
I want to drink out of the cup that has a lid, but obviously I want it without the lid.
In other news:
The Bergy Bits got new juice bottles with characters on the lids: Hello Kitty, Thomas the Tank Engine and Strawberry Shortcake - aka "kitty juice" "train juice... and "lady juice" o_O
En route to a dinnertime potty break, The Quiet One indicated her dinner and said sternly "Daddy no eat it!". He promised he wouldn't, but she still gave him several suspicious glances over her shoulder as she went.
Cannot read the phrase 'dumb like a fox' without following it up with 'fox, fox; thighs like what, what, what'
Motion to draft Nick/Mike f****** Itten into the Male 'Pinners Auxiliary Society. Anyone second?
@swirrlygrrl I have maintained for years that Cosgrove is the only bangable dude at that office. (OK, Stan could get it.)
