rachel time~cupcake time~

i think acali is going to enter the cupcake contest!! now i have to come up with something clever.

uh, i'm fresh out of clever. anyone have any ideas??? throw 'em at me.

i'll split the prize with ya. um i don't even know what the prize is... of course being featured in the magazine but i'll get back to you if there is more.

it's official

buh bye.

it can't be cupcakes & posh spice all the time

those of you that 'know' me know that i much prefer to blog lighthearted nonsense than 'real' issues. but every so often...

i took this right off the governor's official site:

March 7, 2008 - Governor Spitzer in New York City announcing $5 million in grant funding for small businesses throughout Lower Manhattan with Speaker Sheldon Silver (far left), Councilman Alan Gerson (left), Congressman Jerrold Nadler (right) and Community Board 1 Chair Julie....

so i wonder if any of this funding went for funding the business of prostitution?? (*wink wink*)

any extra marital sex is really between the governor & his wife. breaking the law and being a hypocrite about it is between the governor and the people. plain and simple he broke the law. he is supposed to be for the people, an example for the people, not someone who thinks he can get away with breaking the law simply because of his position.

he is only remorseful because he got caught.

for some real sh*t read ... &

i received some cool books. i had just signed up for oprah book of the month club on line 'a new earth awakening to your life's purpose' so it was ironic one of the girls gave me the book!! now i'm all set for the club. the first webinar is coming up.

the white fur bag is pimpin' hilarious. its huge. i can see myself in the airport goin to
' to vegas! i love it. and the leopard print top has major gold sparkly's, although it doesn't show in the pic. and well, the giraffe bag speaks for itself! so maybe you are figuring out i have a flashy side!! (& my friends know it!)

a *bucks card & amex card & a clearing your chakra cd. flashy & spiritual!

this is a mirror key chain. EVERY girl should have one of these!! (boys are stupid co. )
