A Young Girl's Coming of Age Story-"Can I get your number?"

So the days of the number exchange have changed. I think I can remember when we still scrounged around for a piece of paper, or scribbled it on our homework assignment pad. Before the days of cell phones. Today you just whip that thing out and boom you're in. (HAHA I remember this one time when I was promoting for Budweiser this guy made me put his number in my phone, I titled it "Don't answer"). So at the pure age of 19 when a 32-year-old man hands you his business card what do you do?! What does that mean?! Is it like your ticket into the land of grown-ups, of mature men (well maybe who think they're mature). Or, are you grossed out that he's 32, he knows your 19, you're at a college bar and intoxicated. I thought business cards were reserved for like meeting in the elevator, or on the street or subway, a sober exchange of the contact information. Not sure my thoughts on the situation. From an "old wise" age of 23 looking back on it, he's probably just trying to impress and get some ass. I also don't really like the idea of him waving his responsibility of making the first call, by giving you his number. If I was 19 I might have thought it was cool/flattering but probably would have left the card on the bar and filed the story away. Either way, a coming of age story when a man hands you his business card.

Bachelor in a Grass skirt

Another loss for me this weekend. I was out after Lindsey's "Passion Party" (yea you know!)all in the mood for some passion. We go to this place and there is a Hawaiian Bachelor party going on PERFECT! Until the guy who is getting married decides I'm real cute and grabs me and starts grinding with me. All his friends think its great! In my head I'm like "YOU ARE GETTING MARRIED...STOP WASTING MY TIME!" So we had guy with girlfriend, guy who's getting married, whats next a Mormon?

Allison 0 New York 1

I was out last night and spotted a cute guy across the bar, sounded like he had a little accent of sorts. As he became more intoxicated he began testing the waters until he finally came over and started talking to my friends and I. Holy cow what a weird-O! A 32-year-old Scottish guy who managed to give us a history lesson on the US constitution, Alexander Hamilton, the rights of this country told us how he loves *ussy, but made a minor reference to possibly being gay, and expressed his anger about certain historical figures by calling them cunts. So the score goes for Allison meeting guys in NY: Allison 0: Crazy/unsuccessful attempts by the fine offerings of NYC 1

It's like meeting the man of your dreams...and then meeting his beautiful wife.

Isn't it ironic. A gorgeous guy sat down next to me at a Jersey bar (Leggets whohooo!) this weekend. Big, buff, blond guy, 30 (perfect age!), state trooper(ok we can deal with that), he even had a little wing man, he seemed really interested in me and I in him until he goes, "Oh Allison, this is my girlfriend Ashley." Whatttt!?! I then try to casually turn my head in search of new prospects but he keeps talking to me! Ashley seems totally cool about her boyfriend talking to other girls, me, I'm quite perplexed. This guy was legitimately flirting. So I came to 3 possible explanations 1.) The two are not monogamous (she even looked a little gay) 2.) He was trying to get someone for his little wing man 3.) They were looking for a three-some.

I was that kid...



I had Julia and Amanda over the other night to paint Easter Eggs! It was a cheap fun alternative for entertainment. While doing this child-like project different personalities arose in each of us. Were you the kid that sat back and watched what everyone else did first, then came out with the best ideas in the end? Were you the 'did your own thing proud of your work but still admired everyone elses' or...the one who dried up all the markers tried to mix 3 different colors, ripped your cheap writing paper from erasing so much and put too much glue on everything!

Homeless man denies Special K bar

My friend Amanda told me this story last night, I had to put it in!


So the other day I was on the subway on my way to work, headphones on, reading the trashy tabloid, etc. and one of those homeless subway beggars gets on our car and starts into his "i'm homeless, give me money/food. anything" speech. So as he walks by I take out a special k bar from my bag, I would rather give them food than money because you know they will actually use the food for something postive. And he looks at me and says "oh i'm sorry i have sugar diabetes i can't have that" and I thought to myself "well I guess beggars can be choosers..."

Only me...

-Going to the set of LL Cool-jays new pilot (where I met the prouder)
-Visiting the Hollywood history musume and seeing all the Moulin Rouge stuff...and then eating curly fries and a rootbeer float at Mel's Drive-In
-Renting a Mustang Convertible and driving along the Pacific Coast hi-way
-Visiting the lovely Alison Eakle!
