Everyone has their vices and mine is definitely the Internet. Some people while away the hours in front of the TV, some play Solitaire, some shoot guns, others read — I waste 99.9% of my time online researching things like the giant clown face on the abandoned buildings in Asbury Park, New Jersey (a seriously fascinating and creepy place!) or how to cook kelp noodles into a lasagna until you can’t tell you’re eating seaweed. Every day it’s a different subject and I honestly wonder what people did before their every random question could be answered in mere seconds online. Is that what people used encyclopedias for?
In fact, looking in my Google web history, I found some real gems when it comes to my Internet use. A few examples:
“Why are dogs’ butts so gross?”
“72-34″ (note: yes, I am dumb at simple math)
“How to churn your own butter”
“goat’s blood and satanic rituals”
“do they remove your guts when performing a c-cection?”
“electric dog collars and children”
“deep fried pickle recipe”
“Wiccan spells for full moon”
…And these are just for the last couple days!
I think everyone should turn on their Googling history and then take a step back and a have a deep look at themselves. These search terms make me think that I may be a learning disabled psychopath with a yen for culinary arts and a slight case of hypochondria. Eyes may be windows into the soul, but a gander through your browsing history seems so much more insightful.
But who uses a mouse anymore?!

What a day, what a day…what a loooong icky day. This was supposed to be the day we went to print at the magazine, but of course after working three days straight, we still weren’t ready to upload. Thankfully we had our fashion shoot planned at the Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels, Maryland which we could not reschedule. Madness escaped! For a little while anyway.
So four hours later than we had hoped, Kelly, Ali, and I headed for the shore. The Inn at Perry Cabin is an absolutely gorgeous property where they filmed the movie, “Wedding Crashers.” And very much like the stars of said film, the gals of Washington Life arrived and headed straight to the bar. I mean, it was dark anyway, why not enjoy the wonders of the indoors? So we drank wine and a trough of whiskey and let ourselves recover from the day. And what was our master “recover from horrible crap day” solution?Skinny dipping! Well fueled, the three of us headed out of my wonderful room and down the manicured lawn of the property wearing fluffy white towels. Under the light of a full moon, the dock beckoned and we cannonballed right into the Chesapeake Bay in our birthday suits.
I must say, I’m thankful the water was warm, that the moon was full, that Dan tending bar was so entertaining, and that Ali and Kelly are always down for a little dose of f-u-n. I’m also thankful that the above mentioned. along with our amazing stylist James Cornwell, took the time to write thank you notes for the good old blog. They’re scanned below!
