A boy sent me roses.

And this is another interesting attack on the new design. Love the suggestion that the Web designer is trying to sabotage them.

UPDATE: Now with photographic evidence!

  1. That was totally my first thought. Either her father or her brother.

    Also, just did a little housekeeping and combined two posts if you’re wondering what happened to the other one that was up for a few minutes.

  2. This may have been from the hideously rich suitor who provided by the matchmaker. For a nominal sum, he may be able to get laid tonight.

  3. I don’t know if anybody has been keeping tabs on the QOTD over there, but apparently a sensually/sexually liberated woman with a genius-level IQ is taking these girls seriously and writing her thoughts on feminism. Genius-level IQ!? Really?! At NS? Gentle Jesus. I’m ashamed for genius-level IQ’d women everywhere.

  4. Uh, I can’t open Mary’s site/cite/sight…getting a dns error message…

    Technical difficulties? Or Mary thinks the tutu Jules picked out for her looks hideous?

  5. She claims she took a photo of the roses with her iPhone, yet the background is completely white, like a piece of clipart. And what is that faint pink box in the lower right corner? Watermark? Logo from online florist?

    Does anyone have links to NASA for a forensic photo analysis? I need more evidence for the case I’m building to have her involuntarily committed to a mental hospital.

  6. If I were Julia Allison–and thank all that’s holy that I am not–I would so TOTALLY send myself roses on Valentine’s Day and then blog them to death to make myself look more desirable/popular/appealing than I really am. Then I’d deduct the cost from my taxes as a business expense.

  7. One bouquet for the hottest lil’ all-growed-up Lolita on the planet?

    Jackal, where are the love tributes from your 12 crushable suitors? Your hundreds of thousands of adoring fans? Your grateful sponsors? Surely Gawker sent you a giant box of frenemy-scented cupcakes, at least?

    *crickets chirping*

  9. Come on, really? I just did a Google image search of red roses/bouquet of red roses and couldn’t find it in the first few pages.

    Let this be our mission!

    FIND THE MATCHING FAKE PHOTOGRAPH! Then call Nurse Ratched! Someone needs some electro-shock!

  10. Anon: I think it is. A stock photo would be in focus, no? But I am perplexed by that bit of pink in the bottom right.

  11. Har! Jules read the comments here about which pictures were taken with what camera yesterday and stuck that ‘taken with my iphone’ line in there because she deduced that enough of us would click on to see the flowers. dumb like a bunny!

  12. I mean, she is not known for telling anyone where any of her pictures come from, [although she does seem to be taking note of that as well–yesterday she finally credited someone’s photo]

    Here’s your reality show Bravo!!

    Who’s puppetmaster is it anyway?

    Sweet fun comedy about an undesignated number of people and Jules hashing it out on the internets.

    I’d watch it, oh wait, I am.

  13. The bunch is standing on her white bed sheets and she has taken the photo from above. The pink blur in the right hand corner is a pillow on her bed.

    At least that is what I reckon.

  14. If you click on the ‘watch live coverage of fashion week’ link on their site/cite/sight,

    You get last year’s show of Mary getting made up.

    Chat line is full of “how is this live?” and an erstwhile “Julia sucks”

    Fashion week [one day in] seems to be in the class of CES, DLD, and everything else they fucked up

  15. I opened up the “photo” in Fireworks and put it through a few filters. That pink thing is transparent, so it can’t be a solid object like a pillow. Also, the white areas have no shadows, no wrinkles on the bed sheets, no table edge.

    Julia, be a darling monkey and post some more photos of your beautiful bouquet. Perhaps you could sniff them appreciatively. Maybe Marshmallow could be chewing on the wrapper, or you could wear the ribbon as a lovely hair bow. Otherwise, I’m afraid we’ll have to take the absence of any personally identifying details as proof that you did not receive those particular roses on this specific date.

    (I’m stuck on the couch with an injured ankle today. This keeps my mind off the pain. It’s better than codeine!)

  17. I think these are from the guy who texted her saying he was going to “rock her sushi world” (did anyone listen to the radio interview?). Those leaves in between the roses look like the leaves that California Rolls are wrapped in… I don’t know their name, I don’t eat sushi!

  18. Heh, those folded over leaves look like dirty tongues. The word “taint” also comes to mind, for some odd reason. Must.look.away.

  19. Is anyone else really excited to see the godawful outfit Julia has put together for this barbie show (WTF is that?). Red tutu? Really, Jankles? This shit is about to get good.

  20. Yes, the Barbie Fashion Show!! I need more details on where/when/how so I don’t miss the show of the century. Never was there an event more suited to the Pink Lady(‘s ego).

    That live chat could make for some lulz. I think it starts up for real on Sunday.

    I think the best term for anything Julia wears is “getup”. Outfit sounds too dignified. 😉

  21. I’m quite sure this is an Iphone pic but I’m doing a bit of research.

    Everyone get their pepto ready—we have Barbie pics coming!!!!!!!!!

    BTW, the woman who made those tutus for her specialized in CHILDREN’s tutus. She normally does not make adults’ tutus. HA!

  22. i like the tutu because she’s paired it with a white tshirt and great red shoes.

    i would wear it to a theme party.

    i just turned 20 years old.

    and i would never wear that headband. ever.

  23. Anony 4:21, you’d probably look great in that costume, tooBut then, you’re nearly a DECADE younger than Jackles. She is tragic on an epic scale.

    (I like putting decade in all caps so Jules can see it better.)

  24. Mary blogged a lame joke about how women giving blow jobs is comparable to men giving flowers. I guess because both are first date, getting-to-know-you gestures for her and her cohorts. That’s so sweet.

  25. any one else getting this message when they go to Julia’s page?

    We couldn’t find the page you were looking for.

    Feel free to contact support if there’s anything we can help you find.

  26. Anony 4:37, that’s everything she posts to NS, without page views or ads. It goes back an entire year! That is freaking sweet!

  27. folks the photo was stagged..

    top left corner tinge of yellow smudge..right lower corner same type of smudge..

    tape produces that type of smudge folks./.

  28. New conspiracy theory

    the girls aren't speaking;
    went with new design to claim internet dificulties
    [again]

    Meghan> nothing [post was put up by an intern]
    Julia>staged picture of roses to keep ppl busy
    Mary>page cannot be found

    M&M jumped ship.
    It's just jackles!

    I too, am on the couch bored with cnn

  29. Anon 4:37, you have no idea how helpful that is to us. THANKS!

    Funny to go back and read when she quit the Internet last March.

  30. More than likely, third party javascript is invoking advertisements from another server, which could be running slow at any given time.

    The ads are doing more harm than good. Yippee-skippy.com!

  31. Here’s Mary’s dig:

    juliaallison:

    And the Barbie show begins … It’s taking every ounce of self-control I have not to write everything IN CAPITAL LETTERS WITH 793 EXCLAMATION POINTS … THAT IS HOW MUCH I LOVED THIS SHOW.

    What a fun show to attend as Betsy won’t be showing at the tents.

    But this show begs the question, when ”big name” designers can’t afford to produce a runway show, why/how is Barbie? I obviously don’t know the whole story, but I don’t think Barbie is sending a recession-friendly message here. (Not that we are always conscious of that. We simply post our life as it happens.)
