Top SIX things Bitchy and Sassy learned while in New York City (because ten is overrated).



(We interrupt this post for a breaking news story...I am being featured over on the TODAY Show WEBSITE. Somebody pinch me.


6. There are 2 Forever 21 stores in New York City, both within walking distance (meaning one thousand miles) of The Hilton New York. You can shop there at least nine times, and not realize you bought the same thing on trip number nine that you bought on trip number three.


5. The Forever 21 store in New York City has a great return policy, so if you run out of money on the second day in the city, you can return things for CASH, and turn around and spend it in the same store. And buy the same thing.


4. If you get into a Towne Car four blocks from your hotel, THINKING it’s a taxi, and the driver tells you “This is your LUCKY DAY!” - don’t believe him.


3. If you ask your mother to reimburse you the SIXTY dollars that the Towne Car driver swindled you out of, she’ll say “HELL NO!” (She claims it’s your lesson to learn. She is SUCH a @(#*#&.)


2. While these shoes are gorgeous, they are NOT conducive to running for your life down the streets of New York City.



1. Four days together in New York City is four days too many. And, conducting a knock down drag out fight in front of your mother’s blogging friends on the last night of the conference does not bode well for the ride home. (However, we did feel we had a responsibility to live up to our names. Go big or go home, right?)

When you're buying all that stuff, it's easy to buy duplicates.

You know, cause the clothes are so little and all that. . .

Cheryl said...

Did they really have a rock 'em sock 'em fight in front of your friends? That must've been the high point of your trip.

Michele said...

Isn't that nice...they didn't make a liar out of you. Such considerate children.

Funny, I don't think I even saw a Forever 21 store while in NY. Guess I was just looking for the candy stores...

Sorry I missed the knock down drag out! Love that you went big and then went home! :)

Gaston Studio said...

Go big and go home... great exit. You'll definitely be remembered!

WeaselMomma said...

Flippin' hysterical! Confusing a town car with a cab? (Sorry, that's the city folk in me talking).

madtexter (corey james) said...

As soon as I started reading #4 I knew something bad was going to happen. Yes, stay AWAY from the towncars!

a Broad said...

Helpless from giggling, imagining that Limo driver, imagining the knock down drag out in front of your friends ...

The Boob Nazi said...

When I bought stuff at Forever 21 for 80s dancing and ended up not liking it or wearing it, the store wouldn't let me return it for cash!!! WTF

Teresa Dawn said...

Haha! So did they keep both the identical items they bought or make use of that excellent return policy?

Elizabeth said...

You're a good mommy and it sounds like you deserve a cocktail! For a change, I recommend a shot of tequila, preceded by a salt lick off of a young stud. Body shot style. For detailed instructions, see today's post, "Would it hurt if I salted your ----?"

What a great post, I enjoyed each and every word!!

Take care, Sue

Cora said...

I just physically cringed looking at those shoes.

Ouch!

Steven Anthony said...

sounds eventful....and you know I love me some shoes, those are awesome.

At least now we all know you weren't exaggerating when you describe them :).

Mancunian Mum said...

And they didn't break their ankles running in those heels? Are they both Superwoman or something? x

Pollyanna said...

Wow, can't wait until my girls are 15 years older . . .

Can you see the sarcasm dripping?

*sigh*

Mimi Lenox said...

I'd say that was quite some trip. I shall read backwards and catch up.
Love the shoes though...

Diane J. said...

That's right "Go big or go home". You wouldn't want anyone to think you made this stuff up right?

Great post!

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

Sounds like the adventures of being together was well worth it. Think of all the blogging material you now have.

Mo Diva said...

considering you eventually went home... does that mean you didnt go big?
JK

the only thing i can wear in forever 21 is jewelry... and i think im okay with that... oh and scarves. and hats. i like those things.

jealous of hte diva footwear.

Alana, Author of Domestically Challenged said...

Great shoes. Not so much for the walking bit though...

Anonymous said...

LOL! Why didn't you just leave them both in NY? I'd have ran as soon as the fight started.

Maggie May said...

PINCH!

idgtm said...

Great read on the TODAY site! And I tip my hat to Bitchy & Sassy. Well Done.

SSP said...

the shoes ARE awesome, but yeah, not good for NYC! From what I have been hearing about Blogher, sounds like your girls' "color" was barely the tip of the iceberg on insanity, debauchery and all-out fun everyone had

Sara said...

I think people would've been disappointed had they witnessed anything else.

SSP said...

and the teacher article on the today website was awesome :-)

Robin Dodd Photography said...

omg.. did they really get into a town car...and I have a friend who walks around the city in those shoes and she is not a hooker.. she works on wall street.. shes says it's like a beauty is pain kind of thing.. LOL

Gigi said...

Loved this! Perfect top six list.

And the article on the Today website? Perfect.

Missy said...

Love children...
Your post at Show Website is nothing short of complete awesome!!!

Under the Influence said...

Sorry we nevwe hooked up at BlogHer. And if you heard about a blogger wiping out on the sidewalk on 53rd Street at 1 in the morning, resulting in a dislocated elbow and brken humeris, that was me.

noexcuses said...

Outstanding article on Show Website! I loved it!

Aren't the tweens delightful! I feel your pain and embarrassment!
You handled it all very well. Sorry about the Towne Car!

I wore shoes like that for about a month, in the 70's, when I was in high school!!! My face couldn't take the pavement any more!

Great post!!!

Just read your post on TODAY'S website. Wonderful advice, as always. I left a comment, urging people to check out your blog every day!

最後,妳把他的愧疚消耗殆盡…

因為她,你變得冷漠不已。曾經我也不想去抓姦
因為我還存有著絲絲希望你回頭,所以一直不願意抓姦
然而兩年過去,你以為我不敢抓姦而誇張甚至與她同居在外。
我真的不敢抓姦嗎?我只是不願意;我想,該是抓姦的時候了,
打開這扇門,是該面對現實的時候了...

他在工作上的自信讓她深深被吸引,他的追求更讓她沒半刻猶豫的說yes!
後來她才知道,她只是他的婚外情
即使如此,她還是愛他,因為他告訴她,婚外情只是短暫的,不久的將來,他會離婚!
就這樣,她甘於婚外情的第三者角色,癡癡盼望著男人會離婚。
然而幾年過去,男人找到了另外更年輕貌美的女人,
展開了他另一段美麗的婚外情
而她這段過去式婚外情的心酸,卻連向別人抱怨的資格都沒有...

她知道老公有了外遇,即使內心是想要感情挽回的,
但是擺脫不了受害者的角色,她動輒吵鬧、刻薄的言語...
這些與感情挽回背道而馳的動作讓老公原本愧疚的感覺逐漸消磨!
孩子也想要幫助媽媽感情挽回,但是媽媽總是以受害者自居,
想要感情挽回、但是內心與表現卻總是充滿憤怒!
最後,這段婚姻當然無法感情挽回,終究以離婚收場...

就像許多外遇故事一樣
男人有了外遇想要離婚,但是女人死不放手
所以他藉故發揮、所以她不甘示弱
他總是說這樣不可理喻的女人俗不可耐才讓他想要離婚
她總是說這樣背棄婚姻的男人她絕對不會離婚讓他們好過

記憶中我從沒有過快樂的童年、幸福的家庭
父親在家的時候總是爭執不斷
父親離家的時候母親總是數落不斷

我總是想,為什麼不離婚
這樣的婚姻意義何在?

母親認為離婚就是輸了
但是她不知道,自己身陷在漩渦中無法掙脫...

人家都說男人到大陸都會外遇包二奶
老婆淚眼說擔心他外遇
他了解老婆的擔心,只好用錢去彌補分離的缺憾
漸漸的,老婆的電話愈來愈少…
她說,她是怕自己太依賴
漸漸的,他知道其實是她有了外遇
於是,面對自己外遇的行為,他忽然覺得好過了些…

從來沒想過需要外遇蒐證
如果不是誤打誤撞的情形之下,我不會知道他的出軌....
鄰居因為治安問題,於是在大門口裝了攝影機,卻成了我外遇蒐證的工具。
那天我在家發現用過的保險套,我逼問他,
因為沒有事先外遇蒐證所以他打死不承認!
我想到鄰居安裝的監視器或許可以間接的外遇蒐證,調出影帶,
果真發現前兩天中午他帶女人回家!
這下他才無話可說;
沒想到沒有抓到小偷,鄰居的監視器反而成為我外遇蒐證的工具!

你打死不承認你的外遇,甚至出手打我,抓姦也要在床是嗎?
真的要抓姦在床你才肯承認自己的背叛?我想要抓姦
不僅僅是為了讓你啞口無言,抓姦也是為了要讓自己出一口氣!
我想要抓姦,我想要讓你知道,外遇不是沒有代價的!

從一開始她就知道,她只是一段婚外情
然而戰勝不了寂寞,所以即使是眾人不看好的婚外情
她還是寧願有個伴,即使自己變成婚外情中的角色。
剛開始她也是溫柔體貼的善盡婚外情的角色,
然而時間過去,她愈來愈不甘心這段感情只是婚外情
她開始想要更多,開始要求更多...

通姦是否應該除罪化?一直是眾人所關注的話題。
目前僅有少數國家認為通姦是犯罪的行為,
即使在台灣通姦是犯罪的行為,然而若伴侶不提告,
那麼旁人亦無法對其通姦行為有所制裁。
通姦真的除罪化,那麼合法婚姻的權益與意義何在?

他有了外遇!淑惠想要感情挽回
但是看看鏡子的自己,十幾年的婚姻生活讓她變成一個黃臉婆;
這樣的自己,感情挽回會有勝算嗎?
想當初老公也是擊退眾多追求者才娶到淑惠的,淑惠明白自己是美麗的,
她相信只要好好打扮自己,想要感情挽回絕對會成功!
擬訂好感情挽回的計畫,淑惠先上了美容院換了個時髦的新髮型,
跟姊妹滔上百貨公司買衣服化妝品,把自己打扮的漂漂亮亮!
最後不僅順利的感情挽回,夫妻間的感情甚至比以前更好!

老公的外遇讓我傷心欲絕,甚至還逼我離婚!
不得已之下,我想到尋求徵信的協助。

詢問我所希望的解決方式;
不到一個禮拜,徵信專員就回報我相關訊息,
然後等到時機成熟,徵信專員還陪同我報警抓姦!
老公料不到我真的會抓姦,驚訝不已,
此時,我竟有種報復的快感...
還好我有尋求徵信的協助,不然傻傻的被外遇所傷還不懂反擊!

這麼久了,他過得好嗎?
這個問題在我心中多年縈繞不去,於是我找上徵信社協助我尋人。
我和他是大學同學,之後由於某些原因失去聯繫,
我把所知的資料全都給徵信社,希望徵信社能為我帶來好消息...
兩個禮拜之後,徵信社就幫我找到人了,很遺憾的是,他已經結婚了...
我不後悔找徵信社尋人,雖然難捨落寞,但是我還是很高興的知道他過的很幸福!

結婚、離婚、結婚又離婚...
陳經理喜孜孜的帶著他的新婚妻子參加公司聚餐
陳經理一直是身邊親友茶餘飯後的話題
這是他的第四任妻子
背叛似乎是總慣性
也似乎之於陳經理而言,離婚也能成為一種慣性
他總是因為外遇而離婚
一次又一次
當女人渴望名分,他就要求另外一個女人成全
他流連花叢,女人不因他的離婚紀錄而卻步
似乎卻總是認為自己能夠成為那個「特別的人」
結婚、離婚對他而言不具意義,只是一種手段
反正他總是能找到另一個傻女人
