Hiccups that kill, my new political party, and other ridiculous and BIG news. Fashionistas I have something for you, too!
I'M GOING TO DO IT Y'ALL.
I'm going to finally write a new blog post. And no Facebook, nap, or Keeping Up with the Kardashians marathon is going to stop me this time!!
So, is it just me or has there been a lot of epically weird people making the news recently? And not like weird like your off beat cousin Joey weird, but weird like the kind of people who evoke a sorry-I-don't-have-any-change-and-no-sir-I-do-not-have-the-time response weird.
Exhibit A. Jennifer Mee, the girl who became famous by hiccuping for like 5 months straight, just extended her 15 minutes of fame by killing someone. True story. I mean, if that doesn't deserve an award for Excellence in Completely Random Shit, idk what does. I was intrigued by this story because you would think someone with such an adorably fake chronic condition such as long term hiccups would be a precious Midwesterner with pigtails. On the contrary, Mee was a frequent runaway growing up who had many run ins with the law AND IS NOW A MURDERER. Huh. And apparently she has Tourettes which I think is completely irrelavant to the case as I always thought that Tourettes cause random verbal outbursts, not random 1st degree murders. But idk, I was only a Marketing major in college.
Exhibt B. Jimmy McMillan. Oh Jimmy. Jimmy, Jimmy. This guy is running for Governor of NY and he has one cause and one cause only. Lowering the rent for the citizens of NYC. No seriously, the rent is too damn high. That is the name of his party. And his website. And all things from hence forth regarding him. Why? BECAUSE THE RENT IS TOO DAMN HIGH. Ya'll don't even know. Everything that has ever plagued humanity stems from the fact that the rent is too damn high.
Did you click on that link? Do it now. I'll wait. I meannnnnnnnnnnnn. Who designed that web page for him and how did they manage to time travel back to '97? There is every sort of graphic text known to man floating and glittering in a heap of unnecessary mess. There are dancing skeletons, people. And I bet that has nothing to do with Halloween. Come December they will still be there doing their two frame running man. I applaud McMillan for speaking on a cause that is real; no matter how many West Village hole in the walls I rent I will never get over the fact that the average for a dumpy studio is $2400, however no one in their right minds would allow themselves to vote for this.
On a completely unrelated but totally cool note, I have HUGE news. Lulus.com, that uber cute site chockful of great deals has blessed us with an even bigger deal.

Have you ever shopped Lulu*s before? If not what are waiting for??
Would you rather be Jimmy McMillian's personal assistant
Share a jail cell with Jennifer Mee? And oh yeah, she still has the hiccups.
Good luck with that,
