Pinterest is ruining my life: Surviving wedding season on social media

August 27, 2013

You definitely don't have to be single to want to climb into the internet bunker for a while and drown out the deafening clamor of the engagement/wedding/baby parade on social media. Some days you're just cranky and don't feel like listening to anyone talk about how blissful they are. Or, maybe, you don't give a crap about weddings at all, and you just want a safe place to wait out the "Miley Cyrus Twerking Scandal of 2013."

Even though my best friend from college was listening to Morbid Angel when she handed over her virginity... my personal story still ranks as the worst (or best?).

Every now and again, a small town girl on vacation accidentally stumbles into the biggest nerd-party on earth.

It's hot as balls outside, and I haven't tried on bathing suits in a store since C+C Music Factory was on heavy radio rotation. Join me on an emotionally scarring but ultimately empowering trip through the swimsuit jungle at the most sinister of destinations- THE MALL.

You know that you're in trouble when not even a fictional hamburger wants to hook up with you. Broke207's casual encounter with "Bang with Friends" takes an unexpected and disappointing turn into McDonaldland.

Impulse purchasing isn't all just candy bars and trashy magazines. Today's CONFESSIONAL takes retail oopses to a deeper, darker, and more expensive level.

Bar Diving: Forest Gardens is just like home

June 10, 2013

After spending almost 15 years living in Portland proper, my first year off the peninsula has been a little ...rough. No Public Market, no Bull Moose, no Videoport, NO COFFEE ANYWHERE, and I've been feeling more than a little lost without a neighborhood bar. But, if TRON PINBALL is any indication, Forest Gardens might just be the answer.

It's confessional time! Broke207 takes a long and humiliating walk down memory lane to locate her worst date story. And well, it comes dressed in a very... interesting outfit.

I know the location of every public bathroom on the Portland peninsula, but it didn't help me at all this weekend on my trip East Millinocket. They should strongly consider changing their town slogan to "Nowhere to Pee." Why oh why did I drink that latte?
