Julia: Possibly In Love With Sarahcuda?


(UPDATED to remove stupid reference to "remote mid-Western university." So sorry! It's the arrogant New Yorker in me! My God, Jackles is going to find me and shank me!)

A collection of Tweets over the past couple of days. Hey! Have you heard, everyone? Jackles has been hanging out with Sarah Lacy! Sarah Lacy writes for BusinessWeek! She gets invited to sit on panels during sparsely attended conferences and Jackles gets to follow her around!


@sarahcuda - Oops. Busted!!!!! hahaha
___
Long evening talk with my parents & @Sarahcuda ...
now we're all in bed. Flight to SF tomorrow! Goodnight, moon.

___
After conference dinner with Sarah & Sean at Koi in Evanston.
Fact.

___
Me: "Do I have stuff all over my face?" Sarah: "Just prettiness."
___
@sarahcuda &
I are just staring into our MacBook Airs, as if in a trance. We need to get our butts to Northwestern!

___
Still up, still talking with @sarahcuda. So far we've covered the future of publishing, newspapers, tech, public criticism, and faith.
___
@Sarahcuda just popped a bottle of champ & is peer pressuring me to drink. "I think that's why I have less anxiety than you, cause I drink."
___
Just talking the night away with @sarahcuda, who
is currently wrapped in a large comforter on my parents couch. :)

___
Curbside at ORD waiting for @saracuda - where is my SF bunny??
___
Good morning! It's Pick-Up-@Sarahcuda-from-ORD
day!

  1. Lyrics of Laverne & Shirley tv theme song:

    We’re gonna do it!
    Give us any chance, we’ll take it.
    Give us any rule, we’ll break it.
    We’re gonna make our dreams come true.
    Doin’ it our way.

    Nothin’s gonna turn us back now,
    Straight ahead and on the track now.
    We’re gonna make our dreams come true,
    Doin’ it our way.

    There is nothing we won’t try,
    Never heard the word impossible.
    This time there’s no stopping us.
    We’re gonna do it.

  2. Just FYI - Kellogg is the number 1 ranked B-School in the country. Not that that has anything to do with Julia, per se, but calling the best MBA program in the US a 'remote Midwestern college' makes you sound like a fucking idiot Jacy.

    ReplyDelete
  3. You're calling a university located just outside of Chicago "remote"?

    ReplyDelete
  4. Yes, my bad, sorry. Fixing now. Didn't mean to piss off the Midwesterners!

    ReplyDelete
  5. It doesn't make her an idiot. Not everyone obsesses over the rank or importance of every college in the US. I've never even heard of Kellog. If it's not a top ten I doubt anyone is going to be impressed, sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Wow don't mess with Chicago. Rabid midwesterners (with backup facts!!) will cut a bitch if you dare besmirch the name of their fine city. Sounds like Julia is not alone in her hometown cheerleading.

    ReplyDelete
  7. It was stupid. I directly used the phraseology from an e-mail someone sent me ranting about the conference. I should have excised it before posting in a hurry between real-life duties. Sorry everyone.

    ReplyDelete
  8. It's not about being midwestern etc. Northwestern is one of the best universities in the country. It's acceptance rate was very low and I doubt Jules would have gotten into the unversity. But I'm not blaming Jacy, she's just not as obsessed with academia as I am.

    Still, the conference was VERY much underattended. The conference wasn't held at one of their many nice and big and accomidating conference centers but instead in a Kellog classroom.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Who the hell cares what the school's rank is? The point here is that Julia has posted no less than a dozen tweets, pictures and blog entries related to her unfettered rapture that HER FRIEND SARAH LACY!!!! spoke a a conference at a college in her hometown. Julia got the HONOR of serving as her crash pad, driver and coattail rider for a couple of days. Julia practically planned a trip home around it and is following Sarah to San Fran next.Creeptastic. Julia - the girl who used to get invited to speak at conferences - has now been relegated to audience member and cheerleader for the ONE tech friend she has left. Pitiful, really.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I sincerely apologize, Anon. It was stupid and done in haste. Apologies!

    And yes, I heard barely anyone showed up and that was the true nature of the rant I was sent. That she was making it sound like some huge thing and no one was there.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Look, can we just drop the Northwestern stuff and focus on Julia's pitiable obsession with Sarah Lacy? Think about it... what if one of your friends were blogging, tweeting and photographing you to this degree? You'd probably take out a restraining order, amirite?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Somwhere "ASHTON" is heaving a huge sigh of relief that she found a new twitter @ obsession.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Exactly, James and I think she knows it and it stings. Hence now the transformation into best surportive friend ever. Also, Lacy may be her lifeline to the tech world so she is leaning over backwords to sustain this AND let the snarking world know that she is not yet ready to settle to be known as a football player's Saturday night girl as valleywag put it.
    On an even sadder note, I really think she is so overly exalted because she does not get much of friend action in her everyday life. I'm not a fan of Lacy, but goofing around in Chicago with her must be more fun than explaining to Meghan for the millionth time how the light in the refrigerator works.

  14. Do they share the same plastic surgeon? The rhinoplasty is eerily similar in both.
    And, gosh, isn't it adorable the way their well-padded upper arms make a kinda heart shape?

    These two SO deserve each other. They are a match made in recycled plastic.

    (I have an ugly set of piggy salt & pepper shakers at home. In honor of this post they will now (in my mind) be known as Jankles and Scara.)

  15. Julia's face looks like a squirrel packin' away some nuts for winter.

    Two talentless hacks who skim by in the media/tech world thanks to their average looks. I'm SO glad they found each other.

    (Confidential to Sarah: throw away that lipclolor, like, NOW)

    ReplyDelete
  18. And the picture above is old. There is a reason Julia hasn't posted a picture on her blog in a long time, besides the incredibly contrived, staged and photoshopped Easter slut pics. I doubt she will even show up for the reunion... girlfriend looks BAAAAAD.

    ReplyDelete
  19. maybe she can bring oprah. then she could resemble the hindenburg and no one would care.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Well if we are getting on looks here, SARAH LACY isn't exactly the lil pixie cutie she used to be either. Girl got big, girl got older, and there's not much less attractive than a 34 year old woman still trying to pull off the 24 year old hipster schtick from the dotcom days.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Because if you didnt know, PP know all about the dotcom days. Ugh. Go away already.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Julia looks like some Short Hills divorcee in that photo. I actually can't figure out what it is that makes her look so much older than she is. It's either the heavy makeup or those capped teeth?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I agree with Partypants. Sarah's "hip tech chick" look is about as dated, tired and played out as Julia's "slutty school girl" look. They really are two peas in a pod. Two tired, trite hacks who's 15 minutes are long over and now they're universally mocked by their former peers and left on the outside looking in.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wait. If she's in love with Sarahcuda who remains to be in love with Julia? Is she breaking up with herself now???

    ReplyDelete
  25. @partypants - "if its not a top 10 then i dont anyone would have heard of it". it's the NUMBER 1 you fucking idiot. god, if your going to get off on your high horse about how well smart you are and how you only know the best schools at least know the fuck what your talking about, idiot.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Julia Allison was in love with herself and her fabricated life - wealthy, fabulous life, rich boyfriend, glamorous job, Manhattan apartment, designer clothes, costumes, makeup... superficial all the way. She no longer has any of that. Her looks are ruined, she has no job, an apartment she can't afford, designer clothes that no longer fit, no man to place on a pedestal, and a "business" in the tank.

    Her level of self hatred is probably pretty high right now because she placed all of her love and self worth in fleeting material things and never learned to love herself and who she really is... because she has NO idea who she really is. She's a woman who has spent her entire adult life busy chasing after what she can't have. She never focuses on herself and what she really wants. She's like everything that was wrong with the FICTIONAL Sex and the City image, taken to the most ugly extreme. I don't pity her at all.

  28. Partypants, do not feed the trolls. I know of one person who loves to use profanity and is rabidly obsessed with business school rankings, Chicago and defending the midwest and her name rhymes with Foolia Gallison. Do not feed this troll. She has no trouble feeding herself.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Look! Brother bashing covered up as funny family conversation:

    Dad: Britt's really nervous about getting the results for his oral exams this Friday.
    Me: Britt showed nerves?? Oh my god. He's human!
    Dad: I wouldn't go that far.

    Family like this must make anyone wish they were adopted.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Stop the Northwestern B.S. talk. Let's focus on the trainwreck that is Lacy-Allison. And those who said that Lacy is Julia's own "web 2.0" friend left. You are right!

    The rest of you with your midwestern bullshit. As a recent NYC (born and bread) to Chicago transplant who once thought and said the same things as you, I must say you're wrong. We're not hicks. STFU.

    Again, let's focus on Yoolio and Allison.

    The College Board has forums on its website. Go there if you want to discuss rankings.

  31. Re: Scarallison, I just think it's weeeeird how she just gloms onto people and declares the instant friends. It reminds me of those capsules you drop into water that emerge into sponge people. YAY insta-bffs4ever

    ReplyDelete
  32. my theory: since mary is out of NS and everyone (even the slower ones) is getting hip to the fact that julia is un-friendable and unlikeable, she is putting all her effort into sarah lacy to show everyone that SHE IS A GOOD FRIEND!!! REALLY!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Something tells me this over-arching yay.sarah! crap of Jackles is a barely veiled attempt to passively aggressively diss that beyotch Rachel Sklar who is better looking, genuinely more popular, and a far far better/more informed writer than the two of these yelping phonies could ever be, combined.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hmmm...family convo quoted above draws a sharp portrait of brother Britt as the anti-Julia. I wonder how that happened. Not. I still shudder a bit when I recall Momser Baugher's quote about Julia sucking up all the air in the room, or something similar.

    ReplyDelete
  35. partypants:

    in awe of your instant sponge people analogy.

    ReplyDelete
  36. The only thing remotely interesting about Julia is her family's dysfunction. Julia, spill on the daddy issues, exiled grandma, distanced genius brother, YOUR many obvious issues and you got yourself some readers/page views. I am also sure your family will never speak to you again, but selling out people close to you has never stopped you before.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Does anyone else think it's funny that among all those wide-ranging topics of conversation Julia Allison covered with Sarah Lacy at their Downtown Chicago Condo All-Grrlz Pizza-n-Pajama Party (TM), the obvious topic of the day was omitted?

    That would be how Sarah Lacy was so cruelly dissed for her girly-giggly interviewing techniques that very day in the New York Observer--a story that then migrated to the high-profile Romenesko media gossip/reportage site.

    Yeah, like they didn't hash that over for hours, plotting various forms of payback.

    ReplyDelete
  38. James: agreed re the Baugher saga. Now THAT's the screenplay.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I would love to pitch that screenplay: It's sort of Mommy Dearest meets Lolita meets Village of the Damned meets Spies Like Us

    ReplyDelete
  40. Now that SARAH LACY is Julia's bestest new friend ever, will RANDI ZUCKERBERG be somewhat jealous?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Probably rather relieved.

    I'm still amazed how, by posting this conversation snippet with her father, she is seriously trying to make her brother come across as the FREAK of the family. Nice.

    ReplyDelete
  42. That conversation that Julia posted about her brother is so damned sad:

    Me: Britt showed nerves?? Oh my god. He's human!
    Dad: I wouldn't go that far.

    Ya you two creeps, we all know Britt is the ONE member of your model family who has a sense of discretion and values his and his friend's privacy. He doesn't willingly pose for widdle Juwia's blog. So ya, HE'S obvs the one with the problem here.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Anon @ 11:45, well he probably is the only normal one in that clan, relatively speaking.

    In addition to the Baugher Family Dysfunctions that James mentioned above, there's also her mother's apparent disdain for JABA. Then again, that probably has something to do with the weird, creepy father-daughter relationship.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Where is the man trophy shot? Were there no recognizable men at the conference for Julia to race up to and photograph herself with to make people believe she's uber connected?

    ReplyDelete
  45. not to be a school snob, but Harvard is the #1 business school, followed by Stanford, which is exactly why those are the ONLY two schools (besides LIU!) that Julia mentioned when thinking about applying to b-school. of course, it turns out that it's hard to get into those schools and requires actual work to apply so, you know, let's never discuss the subject again...

    ReplyDelete
  46. 11:18

    You're so right about Rachel Skl. I've heard whispers that she and Julia are no longer speaking.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Jules took the pictures of S.L. (or some short curly haired person) down. Maybe because she realized how pathetic and empty the whole scene looked?

    ReplyDelete
  48. 12:20

    I'm not going to reveal who has whispered it back and forth to me but several have. There were a couple snarky twits from R.S. to J.A. that were public, however. Also, Rex is Sklar's ex and remains Sk's friend and Rex is known to tease and poke fun at Julia publicly. It's not secret.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Rex Sorgatz named NonSociety/Julia Allison one of his top 100 Websites of 2008. At which point I unfollowed him on Twitter (yeah, I'm sure he's still sobbing over that), thinking him a hopeless dunderhead.

    Wow, she seems to have the same defensive, it's-not-me-it's-everyone-else views that you do! AND she styles herself like some sort of younger, thinner version of herself as a Kenley Paperdoll failure. Excellent choice, I am so happy for your new happiness. VERY NICE!

  59. Oh, are Julia and SARAH LACY off to Sea World together now? They can mate and compare blow holes together!
    Speaking of which, was SARAH LACY ever on the Blueprint Cleanse as well? Kinda funny that she and Jules both have somewhat packed on the pounds in the past year or so.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Uh ... Julia Baugher ... stay away from Sea World. You don't want any mental associations made linking you to words like "whale," "manatee" or "Shamu."

    ReplyDelete
  63. Wait what if "Sea World" is code for um...fish...saracuda...well crap. I was going to try and make it a lesbian announcement but I'm too drunk.

  64. but late may could indeed be the time the magic 11th base is reached :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. @partypants: hah!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Wonder if she's going to eat SARAH LACY's fish taco at Sea World. Is it fun?

    ReplyDelete
  67. Would that be appropriate for adults? Worth it?

    ReplyDelete
  68. Somebody eluded to this earlier: the relationship between Julia and her brother - growing up together in competition for their parent's affection is the KEY to how she turned out this way, I think. In families with two children close in age - one becomes an introvert and the other an extrovert. Its a classic scenario. Her mother was spot on with that quote about Julia 'taking up all the oxygen in the room'. I'm sure this is exactly how it was for him, probably for the whole family. Try imagining what it must be and have been like to be her brother - its not like he asked for the job. I'm sure his personality is very much defined in relation to what it must have been like growing up with her around all the time. I think it also explains Julia's fatuous, pseudo-fascination with the trappings of all things 'intellectual', or whatever - conferences, b-school, online MIT lectures etc. She constantly craves some verification on this level. But he seems to be functioning pretty well as far as I can see, head down, really smart and all that, and will ultimately win this battle in the end when he becomes some brilliant Professor or whatever and Julia turns into Joan Rivers 2.0 without the wit, all bloated on cupcakes and still blogging about it. And also, with Julia, obviously, there seems to be something else that has taken her to this whole other weird level. That part is definitely abnormal.

    This Sarah Lacy-Julia thing is only interesting to the extent of waiting to see how it all ends and just how nasty the fall-out.

    She is just so needy and insecure - the way she latches on to people and instantly declares her LOVE by broadcasting to the world is pretty creepy.

    At some level the parents must have been pretty withholding. But I need to stop this cheap, tawdry psychoanalysis now, before I forget who I'm talking about.

    Yo go partypants. Fuck the trolls.

    ReplyDelete
  69. The same woman who used, like, a dozen exclamation points to announce her trip to Legoland is wondering if Sea World is appropriate for adults?

    The real question is whether Julia Allison can appropriately be considered an adult.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Oh that Julia! Can't do anything just for the fun of it and has to seek approval.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Don Juan, love ya!

    Oh, and I believe that this is Julia's general thought process:

    Would that be appropriate for adults? - NO
    Worth it? - NO
    Sign me up!

    I just hope she doesn't start dry-humping a female penguin while she is at Sea World.

  73. Blueprint?! The only thing that juice is a blueprint for is how to become as big as a house.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Can someone explain to me how you get fat drinking nothing but fricking fruits and veggies? I'm just curious since the vegans I know are all non-bloated twigs. I mean, how do you eff up carrot juice?

    ReplyDelete
  75. Partypants, the reason these twits proceed to balloon up after going on their stupid juicefasts is because it messes up a body's metabolism after they return to a regular solid food diet.
    Considering the fact that Julia/SARAHLACY suppliment their juice diets with junk like cupcakes and girlie cocktails. You can't just swig juice and then shove that fatty junk in your system.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Party pants she's not fat. She's put on weight but she's not fat. Do you even know what fat looks like? I'll happily show you. She's got face bloat and she's gained weight. NOT FAT.

    ReplyDelete
  77. PP,

    I have seen this happen in girls obsessed with dieting. Your body decides that there is a famine going on and that it must store everything. Then, a little splurge, like on a cupcake, is packed on. If they just ate normal, balanced meals and didn't deprive themselves of the occasional treat they would look fine. Trying to obsessively control your body is a characteristic of body dysmorphia. Ironically, the exertion of this obsessive control usually leads to the exact problems or flaws that the person is trying to avoid. For instance, obsessing about your nose might lead you to undergo several rhinoplasties, which, in turn, would cause you to develop a freakishly flawed nose, the one thing you were trying to avoid.

    ReplyDelete
  78. but we will all agree that quite the opposite is happening to her body from what we would expect to happen when someone is doing regular intervalls of juice fasting, right? they're doing it WRONG.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I never said she was fat. I asked how someone would get fat living on juice. Omg reading comprehension! You'd be better at it if you had attended the number one school, you know.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Juice fasting is supposed to lead to weight loss if you use it to supplement a healthy lifestyle in the first place. Alternating juice fasts with lattes and deep dish pizza doesn't really make it effective. When you starve your body by feeding it nothing but juice and then introduce something fatty like a pizza, your body stores up the pizza. Liquid diets also permanently mess up your metabolism, so even when you reintroduce solid foods your body never gets back to normal and you gain all that weight plus some back. Julia Allison is the poster child for that nasty little side effect the website for Blueprint Cleanse conveniently doesn't mention.

    Seems like Julia's pal Dave Zinczenko could have told her that.

    Julia's not fat now, but she looks bloated and has zero muscle tone, which means at the clip she's on, she WILL be fat in another year or so.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Zero muscle tone. Absolutely. And face bloat.

    No sleeping, blogging, and juicing following by binges will absolutely lead one in that direction.

    ReplyDelete
  82. How could she have zero muscle tone after doing a few minutes of fauxga (faux + yoga) poses in front of a mirror with her camera, trying to turn on some married billionaire?

    ReplyDelete
  83. Off-topic, but someone up there said "rhinoplasty" -- JA has a nose job, for realz?

  84. JA has had nose jobs, given handjobs, and, yet, has never held a real job. Amazing.

  85. internet grifter

    ReplyDelete
  86. The problem is using a juice fast like a crash diet. You can feel skinny by only drinking juice for 3 days. Then, you are starving so when you decide to eat again you go overboard and eat dinner with 4 cupcakes for desert. Your body can quickly compensate for the calories you missed. Thats why she gained weight while claiming to be on a million juice fasts.

    And she is kinda fat. Her legs are anyways.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I guess I just assumed it was more of like, a 24 hour juice fast when you're hungover, in between vegetarian eating and moderate exercise. You know, something reasonable.

    WTF was I thinking.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Julia Baugher has very obviously had a nose job, not to mention veneers, hair extensions and a little botox and fillers to boot. Her "old face" can most obviously be seen here in this old wonkette post:

  89. I would LOOOOVE it if Jacy or one of the other contributors did a photo collage or timeline to document Julia's transforming looks over the years. From average awkward DC denizen, to glammed up NY gal about town back to bloated average has been.

  90. @Anon 4:53 - Isn't that what NonSociety is? (But, yeah, a slideshow would be more convenient.)

    ReplyDelete
  91. Let's not forget THE ALCOHOL. God, such an enormous waste of money.. these girls might as well be taking diet pills. The point of the juices (questionable as they are, since you can do the same thing on a steady week-long diet of fruits in moderation, veggies and salad by the ton, and little bits of protein) is to kill cravings so you can start forming better eating habits. Sarah was talking about having ordered a new shipment of Blueprint not even 5 days before Julia was remarking on her persuading her to drink. Between the two they are the WORST advertisement for this company since they are unabashed in supplementing their "all juice" meals with pure sugar and calories in the form of alcohol and junk food. Sponsorship faaaail.. at least in Julia's case, uber fail on Sarah for not doing her own due diligence and ultimately being a sheep.
