Here’s Our Lady’s latest post:

Here’s a tease to get you going …

Time Out New York: Sex and Dating, Bad Textiquette by Julia Allison, Issue 694: January 15-21, 2009

“sexxx tonight? yes ot no?”

That would be an ACTUAL TEXT received by marketing account manager Alexa, 28. Perhaps unsurprisingly, she went with the latter option.

So many texts, so little texiquette – something I discovered recently, when a man who was attempting – badly – to woo me, sent me the following SMS:

“Would luv 2 but meet n friends 4 dinner. R u fly n home 4 the holidays? If not, may b we could get together Wed nite. Hope the tape n went well. Talk soon..”

He followed up that gem with these scholarly snippets: “Go n 2 the folks 4 the day. Should b nice.” and “Kool. Look n forward 2 it” and “Thx 4 a nice even n!”

Two dates, sans even a kiss on the mouth, and don’t think those texts had nothing to do with it. Spell “cool” with a “k” and … hmm … how shall I put this? Don’t bother stocking up on condoms.

Sound harsh? Whatever, this is Manhattan, people. The land of the OBO (Or Better Offer). The city of BBD (Bigger, Better, Deals). The town which demands BETTER than the best, which means: get your texting game straight, foo. (Hint: no, not “str8.”)

Look, text whatever you want to your friends or your relatives. Tell your mom you’ll “b a littl l8r than thot, c u soon.” Fine. Whatever. She’s going to wonder why she spent $150,000 on your college tuition, but ultimately, it’s a moot point: she’s required to love you.

But if you’re trying to get someone to fuck you, you’d better mind your textiquette, which means a few very simple NOs!

The NOs and SERIOUSLY – NO!!!!!s of TEXTIQUETTE (and sure, some YES’s thrown in, for good measure).

RB: Mary, some highlights


The Handmaiden of Passive Aggression has been making some banal posts about her dining habits, her take on Golden Globes style and, of course, Our Lady of Introspection. Just a few highlights, because we just don’t want to reblog it all:

Jan 15 – 9:41pm

Under that “wacky” picture of her and Julia making silly faces, Mary writes:

These are the moments I love Jules the most. She has a tendency to over-think things. I have a tendency to be a perfectionist. These two characteristics often clash. But it’s times like this when I know she’ll put up with my bitchiness and I’ll tolerate her twatness because we truly love each other.

Meghan is perfect.

If you were wondering.

Her twatness?!

Jan 15 – 9:59pm

This is 1/5 what I put up with on a daily basis. The other 4/5 of you I love and adore.

Ruh roh. I wonder which fifth are we?

RB: Julia (via Meghan), Jan 15, 6:47pm


Never let it be said that Julia isn’t generous with her attention. The following post proves it:


Megan Alagna and I are going to Sundance this weekend to participate in an event hosted by Ashton Kutcher and Kevin Rose called “24 Hours in Sundance”.

My preparation (per usual) is last minute.

What the heck do you wear to a film festival? I’m sure that Geek T’s are not the wardrobe.

Also, I need your help thoughout this event. They’re making us do some Survior-esque activities, so anyone anywhere that knows people at Sundance this weekend, please e-mail me.

RB: Julia, Jan 15 – 6:42pm


Comedy gold:

Me: Is it okay that I wear the EXACT SAME OUTFIT on every single first date?
Lilly: [licks the ground]
Me: I’m going to take that as a “yes.”
