      “juliaallison Julia Allison
      Frantically trying to decide what I should speak about at SXSW. I’m signed up to do a short talk, but paralyzed by topic indecision. Eek!”

      You’re frantic because you’ve got nothing to say Donkia.

  5. Dr. Gary says:

    “At Least I Got @Julia Before Anyone Else, LUDDITE-SUCKERS!”

    Actually, the way I remember it? Someone else had @Julia first. Then Julie stamped her hooves and pitched a fit until Twitter took it away from that person and gave it to her.

    • Pescachickatarian says:

      Dr Gary, you are truly a custodian of her memories.

    • Dr. Gary says:

      How many times do you think this woman has thought about changing her name?

      • Donkeys Have Expiration Dates says:

        Poor woman. I see no reason why she deserves this kind of punishment. Julie Boggart could have picked so many other pseudonyms.

        Donkey has probably tried to get Twitter to give her @jallisonproject on multiple occasions, too. I wouldn’t be surprised if even Lilly has multiple Twitter handles.

      • for serious?? says:

        How about the fact that THIS Julia Allison sounds like a fascinating person?

        I’d read a blog about art conservation and installation. Also, I’d watch a reality show about her life.

  6. Donkeys Have Expiration Dates says:

    Exactly what is a “LUDDITE-SUCKER,” Miss Amazing Burro-Writer? As always, Donkey’s use of a somewhat sophisticated word suggests that she just learned it for the first time five minutes before tweeting it.

    • LEFOOLIEH says:

      Why does she keep tossing in the word “luddite” when she, “tech expert” and “internet enthusiast”, can’t even figure out how to use a search engine and opts instead to lazily crowdsource constantly? Nobody is impressed that she registered a thousand pointless domains/URLs and strongarmed her way into getting a hold of @julia, particularly since Twitter has yet to figure out how to transition from a free service to turning a profit and she only wanted that name because she’s THAT big of a narcissist. She probably grabbed it knowing she will eventually have to drop “Allison” just as she did “Baugher” – for privacy, of course! The idiocy, it burns.

  7. Donkeys Have Expiration Dates says:

    True story: even if Donkey were lecturing to a 1000-person audience without a mic, the people in the cheap seats would still get tinnitus.

  8. Sausage Snappers says:

    She didn’t get @Julia before anyone else. She stole it from someone.

    You bet your ass I’m gonna troll her if she does SXSW.

    • Bitch says:

      Wait, she really stole @julia? What is the back story on this?

      • LEFOOLIEH says:

        Someone else definitely had it first. Since it hadn’t been updated/active in awhile, she somehow convinced the powers that be to let her have it instead.

        • Barking Mad says:

          And now she doesn’t even use it. 7 tweets since she got it in 2009, spaced out so nobody can claim it’s abandoned.


          • New Year New You says:

            She even follows herself.

            Double Donkey.

          • Donkadooball says:

            I love how she barely uses it, lies about getting it before anyone else and still has the nerve to suggest making it a speaking topic at SXSW. In fact, I remember her being really being really sour on Twitter a few years back – when I’m sure @Julia had already been snapped up a year or two prior. The only reason I remember that was because even a dumb cat lady like me could tell that Twitter was going to be a pretty big deal. I thought it was odd that Miss Social Media Expert didn’t recognize that and was being so critical of it, yet didn’t have any reasons to support that criticism.

  9. FU Money says:

    She boned Tim Ferris? Ew.

    • zandra - maps lover! says:

      Everyone thought she had just begun dating Tim Ferris and she emailed RBNS being like, “NO, I BONED HIM LAST SUMMER! TRY AGAIN!”

    I apparently have a lot of catching up to do, but- what is the tiara theft thing about?

    • Jacy "Donk" LaRue Donk LaRue says:

      Someone broke into Jordan’s apartment — well, her man left the door unlocked — shortly after she left NonSociety. Nothing of monetary value was stolen, only Jordan’s wedding tiara, that was hidden away in a box that Donkey knew about.

      As a former RBNS commenter once said:

      Mule-ia Mallison Says:
      August 3, 2010 at 12:08 am

      how could you NOT think that julia stole jordan’s tiara?

      who else knew that jordan was out of town?

      who else was mad at jordan?

      who else knows where jordan lived/had been there before?

      who else would’ve had reason to go there?

      who else has soooo little morals/propriety/boundaries?

      all signs point towards julia. obviously, no one can prove it. but julia just fits the type of person that would do that.

    Behind the Plasma: Fake Founders and Stolen Tiaras
    I have no idea what you’re talking about but it’s ridiculous and defamatory to write the words “fake” or “tiara” anywhere on a blog that also contains my name and illegally plagurizes my intellectual property from other websites in draconian perpetuity.

    • Donkeys Have Expiration Dates says:


      or, as I should say, “I’d like to file an amicus curae motion on behalf of this comment.”

  17. Take Me To My Wacker Place says:

  18. juliaspublicist says:

    I’m confused. From what I understand, most of the panels for SXSW are set. How is she brainstorming titles now?

  19. New Year New You says:

    And having read her critics suggesting she do something to become a better person, voila:

    I really want to donate blood. Um … at the risk of asking a really obvious question, what is the best way to do this? ?

  21. Donkeys Have Expiration Dates says:

    I’d like to address The Amazing Burro’s assertion that “Social Media Ruined My Life.”

    I won’t dispute that her life is pretty damn fucked up. However, one Julia Allison of 2008 revealed, “It’s entirely possible I’m ruining my life.” That Julia Allison was so much more prescient than the Julia Allison of today. Perhaps because the consequences were further away back then.

    No, Donkey, social media didn’t ruin your life. You did.

    Shilldebeast braying for Pelt Friendly Airlines:
    * With a little pre-planning, traveling for work with pelts can be an enjoyable experience — pelts can be an excellent companion on a lonely business trip.
    * Traveling with pelts can be a fun experience for everyone involved, if the comfort of the pelt is taken into consideration — many hotels now accommodate pelts.
    * When flying with pelts, animal welfare organizations strongly recommend that the pelts travel in the cabin area of the aircraft with you, rather than in the cargo hold — you do not want your pelts to become a statistic.

    • Jack the Bulldog says:

      Oh my God! This had me in hysterics and at midnight and now I long for pelts of my own. Do they get along well with bulldogs and budgies? Can I train them to walk five paces behind me? Can pelts sniff out tiaras? So many questions but putting one on layaway tomorrow at Ryan & TJ’s!

    Good to see she’s so totally over having an eating disorder

    No problems here. Nothing to see. Not trying to get super-skinny for a boy at all.

    • Aggressively Stupid says:

      Not that she ever reads here, but, Jules, that scales will only reliably read the body fat percentage in your lower body. The most accurate way to test body fat is DEXA x-ray scanning which you can have done at a doctor’s office or body dunking which is much cheaper and is done by most nutritionists. And you really should really see a nutritionist, but if you do, be honest about the juicing business. I’d be willing to bet that you weren’t with your doctor which is how you ended up with that “wheat allergy” diagnosis.
      Also, see a therapist.

      “The way Phase 1 works is the Super Cleanse and Super Protein are taken for one week and the Quick Burn for one month. Don’t let this short period of time fool you. In a Clinical study, those doing the NuLean Phase 1 Program lost on average 7-1/2 pounds (and just as many inches) in the first week alone! They also enjoyed considerable improvements in their health as verified by a series of before and after blood tests.”

      • Shamoolia says:

        Wow. She is an idiot. Drinking processed powder “shakes” and popping pills full of chemicals is even dumber than juicing. Congratulations Julie… you’re crash dieting yourself to 200 lbs. faster than I can say “permanently fucking up your metabolism.”
