Trashy Fashion

I am convinced that there are two kinds of people in this world: those that collect receipts and those that don’t even bother taking them from the cashier.

I, for one, happen to be the latter. Unless I need a receipt as proof for some kind of tax deduction, I assure you that it’s going in the garbage.

This is particularly true of CVS receipts which have gained notoriety for being excessively long. Why are they so long other than the 20 coupons that have an expiration date for that same day? Beats me, because I’ve never bothered to read them.

But if you want to know what it’s like to wear one, then congratulations! You can be the proud new owner of this CVS receipt-inspired scarf.



New Year, New You

The New Year has come and gone and if you are like most people out there, you’ve probably already made your New Year’s Resolution.

Whether it’s a commitment to getting in shape, drinking less, taking guitar lessons, or being less of a manwhore, that’s awesome you set goals. Hopefully, you can stick with them at least through July.

If your New Years Resolution is to be a more successful person, that’s awesome as well, but there are definitely certain habits you’ll need to give up in order to achieve that goal.

Here are 13 things you should give up if you want to be successful.


Popcorn and Mushrooms

I grew up on the musical Cats.

Correction: I grew up on the music of the musical Cats.

While we had never seen the play, my sister and I at a young age would listen to the cassette tape on repeat. We would even reenact many of the scenes the way we imagined they played out in the famous Broadway play.

So, when I found out that Hollywood was coming out with a movie based around the musical, I had to go. I even dragged my 4-year-old son with me who vehemently did not want to see it.

Turns out, my son has better intuition than I do because the movie wasn’t nearly as amazing as I had built it up in my mind.

But, at least I had the common sense not to go see it on mushrooms like this masochistic man did. (Albeit, his story is hysterical).
