Scrupulously Scribbled

This Valentine’s Day I went to the movies with a group of girls to see “Winter’s Tale.” It was a beautiful love story that brought most of my friends to tears. But there were so many parts of the movie that just…failed.

Here are a few things that bothered me (*a few tiny spoilers*):

  • Russell Crowe. He was a demon who really hated Colin Farrell. His mouth twitched into a menacing smile. He twitched so many times that after a while it became humorous. When he showed his true demon self, it was all I could do to not look away. He also sounded like he had throat cancer.

Expect creepy Crowe to be the subject of your nightmares after watching this movie.

  • The unicorn. There was a magical white horse. He was a guardian angel. He had rainbow wings. What?
  • Stars. These were talked about constantly. I’m…

How to really get over someone. . . said no one ever.

Are you going through a bad breakup? Or maybe you had a significant other a while back, but you still aren’t quite over him? Do you find yourself relating to Gotye’s “Somebody that I Used to Know?”

If you answered yes to any of the above, then please keep reading. If you answered no, then please keep reading- it could happen to you eventually.

I am a victim of a bad breakup myself. My story was made for a soap opera: he was a player, I kept coming back to him, I didn’t know about his two girlfriends…the drama went on and on.

So I made this list. I am relating it to my women readers, just because I don’t really know what men do when they break up with someone. Men readers: is it the same?

Eat lots of ice cream to make you feel better. It's good for you!

Eat with your feelings!  Lots of ice cream will definitely help you get over him.

How to really get over someone . . . said no one ever. 

  • Text him every once in a while.  Simply say “Hey.” Just to be friendly. You know, keep in touch.
  • Say you can stay ‘friends.’  If the man is a jerk, then he will only use and abuse that so-called friendship. Give them an inch, they’ll take a mile!
  • Stay friends on Facebook.  As much as you tell yourself it won’t bother you, it will. When you see that he has moved on, is missing you desperately, or has had a complete lifestyle change, it will bother you.
  • Keep the sweatshirt he loaned you. Of course you understand that it is ‘on loan,’ but it has that familiar smell of his cologne (you have never, ever washed it for this reason). Plus it’s more comfortable than any More

Happy birthday! I didn’t get you a gift.

This puppy reminded me of you. Not because of the wrinkles or anything…

Dear friend,

Happy birthday! I didn’t get you a gift. I’m sorry. I’m flat broke…I couldn’t even afford the postage to mail you this letter. Even so, I wanted to do something special for you on your birthday. I mean, I don’t usually wish someone a “happy birthday” on Facebook in all caps with at least 27 exclamation points. I save that for very special people, so you should already feel very privileged.

Let’s be honest, we know each other better than this (here’s the sappy part of the letter). You’ve been there for my lowest of lows-


Ode to the white dress shirt


Source: krumusic.com      Eva Longoria wears her shirt as a dress…does this come off as a little desperate?

The classic white dress shirt. For me, they bring on a series of unfortunate events. The splatter of red spaghetti sauce, the bursting of a favorite black pen, the exploding of an ice-cold Coca Cola…these things tend to gravitate towards me every time I put on my freshly pressed white dress shirt. Nevertheless, it’s a staple in closets everywhere.

There are certain ways to wear a white dress shirt, depending on your personality and/or social status. For example:

Businesswoman- a pencil skirt and pointy-toed shoes

Businessman- a tailored suit and sharp necktie

“Risky Business” -shirt, boxers, and a pair of long socks (not many can pull off this look)

Future Farmer of America- Wrangler jeans, enormous belt buckle, cowboy/steel-toed boots


What I do when I’m home alone

This week my family is going on vacation…without me. No, it’s not that they forgot me, or don’t love me. It’s just that I have a full time job, and I must save and save every penny, and then blow it all at once. Yay college tuition! But I’m not bitter; I have the whole house to myself this weekend. I wrote a list of things I plan to do last night. And here it is:


Oh say can you…get over stage fright?

No, that’s not me…it’s Zooey Deschanel performing the national anthem in a pretty patriotic dress.


Last minute my work asks me, “Can you sing the national anthem at the track meet tonight?” Now, I knew for a fact that they’d never heard me sing before. But I am music major in vocal performance, after all. I guess it was safe to assume I could sing. I hesitated, but I knew they needed me, so I agreed.

Nerves kicked in.  I had a ten minute drive to consider what I’d just gotten myself into. In the car, instead of singing along to my new favorite cd (to be announced in a future post), I sang the “Star Spangled Banner” over and over. It sounded awful until I found a comfortable key. But how could I possibly remember that note I had just started in?? More
