This Week On HelloGiggles

This week’s HelloGiggles post is about An Abundance of Katherines by John Green!

It’s one of my favorite YA books, and just one of my favorite books in general. At the end of one of my college creative writing workshops, our professor made us each recommend a book to the class. I recommended this one; everyone else recommended adult books. Whatever.

Lady Inspiration: Maya Rudolph

I finally have a subscription to Bust! My wonderful mother bought it for me as a Christmas gift. It showed up this week, a little worse for the wear, in my tiny-envelope-sized mailbox. Ta-da!

Welcome to Ladyville favorite JULIE KLAUSNER wrote the cover story on Maya Rudolph! How could it get better? The answer is that it could not. Maya talks about lots of things, like breast pumping and her favorite Sirius station (First Wave! Also my favorite!). Here is my favorite quote, about my crush Chris Parnell:

“Years ago, when I was young and vibrant, I flashed him my boobs on my birthday. It was right before I started on SNL, and I was drinking so much tequila that I flashed him my boobs at a party at my house. The next day he called me, and he left me this message: ‘Hello, Maya, this is Chris Parnell. I want to say thank you very much for showing me your boobs last night. I appreciate it.’ It’s probably my favorite message I’ve ever received.”

New Shirt

I usually try to avoid dressing in anything cute (because I get carded for R-rated movies, really) AND putting pictures of myself on the blog, but here you go. I figured I can break some rules because this shirt features my favorite food…ice cream. With sprinkles!

Lady Jam: Half-Breed, Cher


This was clearly a different time. A time when people used the word “half-breed” and sat on horses while wearing headdresses. Cher could probably still do this, though, and no one would blink an eye. “Oh, there’s Cher again, and…is she on a horse? Good for her.”
