Bachelorette Party Weekend...Buy her a shot 'cause she's tying the knot!

Bridesmaids Trailer--This movie looks awesome.

One of my best friends of all time (Miss AMC) is getting married this June!  I have been bestowed the honor of being one of her bridesmaids and this weekend we're throwing her a Bachelorette party in Louisville, Kentucky.  The other bridesmaids, maid of honor and I have been planning this event for some time now to make sure it is a weekend to remember and partially forget.  I have the responsibility of organizing the games (evil laugh) so I know it will be a stellar time.  HM has our hotel situation and din situation all set up and SPC has the special cake all planned out!  A majority of our time will be at the oh-so-classy Fourth Street Live.  I won't say much more than that just in case the bride-to-be reads my posts before then.
* *   * *

Shout-outs to AMC the bride-to-be: I will say that "You're not the only one but you're the best AMC...BUM BUM!"  Get ready to "shake it like some chocolate milk/taillight/ceiling fan/etc."  And that "We've got a brand new dance it's the newest _________ dance."  LOVE YOU and can't wait to celebrate with you!

Do men prefer women with or without make-up?

My mom was appalled to find out that I rarely ever wear makeup during the week at work.  "But Emily, what if you meet the man of your dreams?!!"  First of all, I don't think I'll meet the "man of my dreams" at work and secondly, the "man of my dreams" better like me with or without makeup!   

It's kind of funny to me that some women are afraid to leave the house without concealer and mascara.  If I'm meeting up with a guy I might be interested in, I'll throw some makeup on.  And I definitely wear makeup when I go out on the weekend, but a majority of the time, I'm a bare faced broad. I bet a lot of you are surprised that I don't wear makeup at work.  I guess I must give off some sort of high maintenance, girly-girl vibe.  I am a girly girl in some ways (giggles), but I am most definitely NOT high maintenance.  

Please feel free to comment.  I really think each guy is different on what he prefers and don't feel like there's a set answer.  Guys especially, I'd love to hear what your opinions are about this!

Is it possible for men and women to be "just friends?"

"When Harry Met Sally" Clip

--A scholarly article on the matter

--An article more likely understood by everyone 
Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man

Have you ever been given the lines "I think of you as a friend" or "You're such a good friend, I don't want to ruin our friendship" from a member of the opposite sex?  Do you believe guys and girls can just be friends if they're attracted to each other?  Maybe acquaintances, but someone you talk to frequently is highly unlikely.  One of you is certainly interested.  The best thing to do in that situation is to be honest and upfront and then let the other person decide their boundaries.  I'm not an expert, but through observation, my own experiences, and in reading literature, it seems to be the most mature, humble, and respectable route to take.  No emotionally secure person appreciates being strung along.  Please feel free to comment with your own experiences and/or your opinion on the matter. When Harry Met Sally

In the Spirit of Easter...

This video is from forever ago, but in the spirit of Easter, I thought I'd share this with you all.  The Easter Bunny's character comes into play at the end. Bo Burnham (CD/DVD)

And who can resist a good peepshow?  Personally, I fancy the Cadbury eggs, but those little peeps sure are fun to blow up in the microwave. Marshmallow Peeps Pink Easter Bunnies 12ct

Wooahh Caught in a Bad Bromance

I know I'm not alone on this one when I say it's annoying to be dating someone AND their friends.  I don't mean you're a "playaaaa", but the guy (or girl) you're dating ALWAYS has their BFF around.  There's been two guys that I've dated (who shall remain nameless) who had at least one guy friend who was always around and made a priority over me.  

(I'm getting personal here with my real life scenarios)
Me: "Hey (BF)________, want to come out with me and my friends for a change?"  
(Now Ex) BF: "Let me see what my BFF _________ is doing first and I'll let you know."  

Ouch right?  I've since discovered that I have been much too tolerable of such behavior.  There were times when it was funny (but not good funny).  

(Now Ex) BF: "Em, want to come watch a movie with me and my BFF __________?"  
I'm pretty sure I even spent part of Valentine's Day with his friend. (gag, gag) 

It may be a maturity thing considering one of those relationships was in college and the other was with a guy a bit younger than me.  I just think it's funny that people cling to those friendships so much in relationships.  It's a little Brokeback-esque if you ask me.  Oh you didn't ask me?  Too bad.  :)

He might as well be our weatherman...

So last night after finally falling asleep, I was woken up to what I thought was D-day.  One of the locations where they set the tornado sirens off must be right by my apartment because it was ear-piercingly loud.  My first instinct is to ignore it, but after the second one I called my mom.  Fifteen minutes go by and another siren goes off so I'm thinking "OMG this is it.  There's finally a tornado" and went to the basement.  After even more time went by, and I realized there was no tornado, I was kind of pissed.  I had to get up earlier than usual this morning and knew I'd be exhausted today.

So you know how if you yell "fire" in a public place (with no fire) you can be charged with inducing panic?  (Well maybe you didn't know that, but you can be.)  Shouldn't these weather people have to be pretty sure there's going to be a tornado before sounding THREE sirens?  I know there's always a chance there's going to be a tornado, but it seems pretty extravagant considering the thunderstorm didn't even seem that bad.  Instead, they just freaked me out and made me lose sleep.

I know its not fair to blame them because they're just trying to protect everyone from non-existent tornados, but I'm sleep-deprived so deal with it.  Anchorman - The Legend of Ron Burgundy (Unrated Widescreen Edition)

The Nine Types of BFs and GFs

You can also click on each image to show them full-sized.  They're quite comical and yet accurate descriptions of different people who are in relationships.  My ex bfs have all been "Ace of Hearts", "The Sneak", and "Bigfoot".  I relate most to "Ms. Nice Guy" and of course, "Ms. Dreamgirl".  I don't know if they'd all agree, but it's my blog. Hahaha.  Which have you dated? - or - Which do you think you are?

Are You a Caffeine Addict Like Me?

The quiz above is targeted to other energy drinkers like myself, but you can pretend like it says coffee/tea if you'd like.  There's one targeted to coffee drinkers HERE, but it was created for Canadians so I'm not sure how relevant it is. See for yourself, eh? (A little Canadian jab) 

I have ADD (Alertness Deficit Disorder) in the morning and thus consume large quantities of caffeine.  My drink of choice is Sugar Free Rockstar.  In the cafeteria at work the cashiers always ask me "So are you going to party like a 'rockstar' today?" And I give the same response every single day except Friday.  "No, but I'm going to work really hard!" (giggle, giggle)  I said except one day because on Fridays I respond with "Heck yes I am, it's Friday!"  It really is the highlight of my workday (maybe I shouldn't admit that).  The Starbucks across the street knows me by name and order (unless I'm feeling adventurous and get an extra shot of espresso).  It's safe to say I'm addicted to caffeine.

Disclaimer: ADD (Alertness Deficit Disorder) is not recognized as an official diagnosis in the DSM IV.  Neither is Latte Homicidal Tendencies.  (A little psychology humor haha)

Why haven't they text you back yet?!

So you've text your mom/boyfriend/frenemy/booty-call and they haven't text you back.  How annoying!  This flowchart will help you to better understand why they may have not responded.  If they respond before you get through the entire chart then CONGRATS!  You are winning!  If not, well I guess you'll at least have more clarity as to why they haven't text you back.

I almost got ran over by a bus today.

My two younger sisters and I were walking to the stadium to go to the Reds game today.  They are both taller than me and don't bother to slow down their walking so I can keep up.  (They're so nice to me.)  We reach the street we need to cross and all of a sudden they darted across the street.  Me, being in my own little world took a minute to realize that they were running across because the light was about to turn green.  So I just kind of started strolling across the street without really paying attention.  All of a sudden I see a Cincinnati Metro bus coming right at me.  I was about to the other side of the street when I started running because I realized the bus was NOT going to stop or slow down for me.  YIKES!

What do my sisters do as soon as I reach safety?  They start cracking up and then proceed to walk much faster than me telling me how dumb I am in the process. Fortunately, I thought the whole thing was funny as well.  I'm a good sport!  Bahahaha...good sport...we were going to a Reds game which is a...nevermind.

Is He Only Texting You and Not Calling?

Click me for more info!

I agree, text is awesome for quick communication and/or talking to someone while at work, but if it's the only form of communication you use in your life you are missing out on "genuine human interaction".  

I think guys are thinking if they call a girl that she's going to want to chat for hours.  Sorry boys, but you're wrong.  We don't all like to talk on the phone for hours, but maybe we just want to *gasp* hear your voice or understand your sarcastic jokes.  Get with the program guys.  Stop being lazy and man up.

Friday Night Plans Changed Due to Rain

Our actual plans tonight include...Click!

There's many more reds games to come.  My friends and I are all excited to do something different for a change.  If you're out downtown tonight we might bump into you!

It's almost Friday night...what are we doing?

Us ladies are going to the Reds game tomorrow.  It's been gorgeous out and there's nothing better (that's an exaggeration) than beer, food, and baseball boys on a Friday.  We will probably end up going out downtown afterwards.  I'll likely run into a guy I'd prefer not to see.  Or at least one of my friends will.  Collectively it happens pretty frequently.  Either way, it's going to be a fun night.  Snickers.

The Bartender Hates It When...

...other guys c-block them.  I wonder if this is really the case?  Hmmm.  I'm going to be on the lookout this weekend.  Mwahaha.

Retake that one I look like crap...

So this video reminds me of my friends who make me retake pictures because they don't like how they look.  Actually, most girls do that.  I honestly just put up all of the pictures and let people untag themselves.  Have you seen some of the pictures of me?  I look ridiculous and you don't see me untagging all of them.  Okay, there's some exceptions.  I think you're pretty in all of them friends. ;)

Why EmCBergs (me) started rapping...

It all started on a Monday Night Girls Night (Guys have MNF--we have MNGN).  One of my friends showed us a bunch of texts this guy she was seeing sent her.  It ranged from poetry (gag), to chit chat, to finally, the lyrics to this song....WET.  Let me tell you, it is NOT a romantic song.  We were all getting a good laugh when someone suggested that I recite the lyrics to the song.  My friend googled the lyrics and without ever hearing the song before I rapped my own version.  Needless to say my friends were dying laughing.  Do I seem like I'd be a rapper?  We then all watched this video and collectively decided my version was better.  Thus, the beginning of EmCBergs.

It's Okay. He's-Just-Not-That-Into-You!

This clip is from a great Sex and the City episode.  Burger is brutally honest with Miranda and says the guy she's been seeing is clearly "just not that into" her.  She's thrilled with the honesty and wants to share her revelation with two girls (whose conversation she overhears).  It doesn't affect them the same way.

Let's hope this isn't happening to you.  I love this movie and its message.  We girls are extremely guilty of convincing each other to wait around for the wrong guys.  He better shape up or ship out.  In the meantime, get a hobby, join a committee or two, and hang out with your friends and family.

Eat Pray Love Quote

"Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it."  Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia

Greek Tequila Shot

I promise all my posts will not have to do with limes.  This one just also seemed fitting.  Not only do I love the show Greek, but I also like tequila.  The only time I will take a lime in the bar is if it's following a tequila shot.  Yes I know I just contradicted myself, but I figure the tequila will kill all diseases.  Please let me live with my ignorance.
