Good Morning Starshine!
I took the train into Stamford on Saturday so that I could do some shopping before Jen's bachelorette. La Madre was there to pick me up and take me to a mall in Trumbull, where my goal was to find shoes for the dress I bought for Julie's wedding. I ended up not finding shoes but bought a hot new outfit for Jen's outing, because I felt schleppy in my jeans in green tank top. (That, and I've already been photographed in the green tank top, and I wanted something new.)
I sat in the front seat of her car and made some off-handed remark about how I felt fat, blah, blah...I expected it to go unnoticed until my mom said, <insert Russian accent here>, "You are not fat, Pauliney, but I do think you should do more sit-ups."
Great. Just great.
So...Sunday, I went to the gym here at The Job and did some abs and arms, just like I was told. I didn't have an iPod with me, so I had to watch the TVs on the treadmills while I did some cardio. This is when I realized that Laguna Beach and America's Next Top Model are the two best shows to watch when you're trying to get your sweat on. Granted the people on Laguna Beach on, like, 16, and have the metabolism of jackrabbits, but envying their abs was enough to keep me running. Well done, Kristin!
I'll be back for more today. With all these weddings coming up in October, it would be in my best interest to get La Junk out of La Trunk. Think of the photos!
There will be photos from Jen's bahcelorette, or at least the pre-party, in a few days. I had to jet out early in order to get a train back to NYC, and I left my camera on a table in the first bar. (Eeek!). However, one of the girls picked it up and will be developing the roll this week.
Apparently I missed some of the real shenanigans later on in the evening and thus have no photos of it. For the sake of Jen and her future marriage, perhaps this is for the best.
There were some really wonderful stories in this weekend's New York Times. Check it:

OK, that should keep you busy for a while. It actually seems like I might be busy today. I need to finish a big article today, so I should focus on that instead of trying to dodge editors that can see me clear across the room.
