Yulia: The hooker goes to M.I.T.


With Andrew Roin, my high school debate partner and a first year student at MIT Sloan. We were the worst debaters, pretty much ever. And we fought like brother & sister. In fact, I once threw an accordion of evidence at his head.

We also went to senior prom together! (after Dan dumped me, leaving me dateless two weeks before the dance. Bad Dan!) And I once made the mistake of visiting him in London for a week when he studied abroad there. Disaster. Never again. ;)


With Miss Lena Chen after my talk at MIT Sloan. :)

So Poofy squeeze herself into prostitute outfit, have pimp do her makeup, slide into black tights, hike skirt up to her bosom and skip off to address students at very prestigious university where she go to TALK ABOUT BUSINESS. WHAT MUST THEY HAVE THINK OF HER? My jaw is on floor of barn where my swine Perchik is nursing bad case of flu, peoples.

  1. Now, Russian Girl... I seriously doubt she was able to "slide into black tights." I'm sure it took plenty of shimmying and panting to get those sausage thighs into their casings.

  2. LOOK at that skirt. it's at like a 70 degree angle from her body in the 2nd picture.

  3. Video tape store in my village just get in copy of Legally Blonde. Julia like Elle Woods - or more like nail shop lady - but that movie was on screen in U.S.A. in 2001. I just say.

    ReplyDelete
  4. WTF? Is she really in her "slutty ice skater" costume?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Just take a moment: what on earth is she saying with that picture. It is her and someone no one else has ever heard of in a room that is as non descript as any I've ever seen. And they are doing nothing. Smiling vacantly at the camera. Again. NO story. No observations. Not even a good picture. And over and over and over she does this. This oculd be a Davos picture, or a Chicago pictrure, or a Southwest Next picture. Just empty. So empty. Some NYC artists shouldjust take all the pictures on her bloch and put them side-by-side-by side. Just an ocean of her in the same pose, year after year, event after event... It's pitiful

    ReplyDelete
  6. I love these speaking engagements... just more opportunities for Julia to look and act like a complete dumbass. She does not have the self awareness to know what a complete fool she is making of herself and that everyone is laughing at her. Like a puppy peeing on the rug. Hooray.org!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I recently saw her at an event wearing the same skirt. She had safety pins in the back.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Oh look, she's doing the hide the baby bump trick as seen on tv! Only she uses a bag and is not pregnant. I'll never forget how C.C. Babcock carried that painting in The Nanny. Good times.
    Also, is that caption under the first image authentic? If so, way to support your ill friend. Will the real Julia Baugher please shut up?!!!

  10. In the 2nd picture, I am worried that her bare ass-cheeks are actually touching the back of that leather chair. Please tell me that isn't so.

    ReplyDelete
  11. JULIA! Of what value or interest are pictures like these? Seriously. i would love to hear an eplanation...

    ReplyDelete
  12. Does anyone have footage of one of her "presentations"? She goes to these things all of the time but nothing ever shows up afterwards.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Julia has no idea how to blog, which is kind of hilarious for someone who wants to blog for a living. I really don't think it's that she is lazy or not trying, I think she actually thinks that her content is great.

    ReplyDelete
  14. What in the hell is she wearing?! To give a talk at MIT...really?! Ugh, her poor brother. How embarassing for him. How short/tight/shiny/poofy is that freakin skirt?!

    ReplyDelete
  15. No we never see what is actually said and done at these things. But I'd bet any amount of money she includes wildly-exagerrated descriptions of her ocntent. I can just see her telling would-be advertisers or cnference attendees that she's covered Davos or the Inauguration - when in fact she took a couple pictures of herself at a hotel BOTH TIMES!

    It's weird. It's like fill-in-the-blanks blogging. Like she is soo trying to build a fantasy for her imagined reader (small town girl? Born and raised in South Detroit? Ready to take that midnight train? Going anyyyyywhere?) that certain things don't need to be said.

    What happened at Foos camp - you know, camp stuff? Like a choose-your-own-adventure video blog. You the reader get to fill the details in...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Crazytrain: Maybe she really thinks blogs write themselves as opposed to magazine columns which have to pass editors etc. Pretty much like someone who claims comedians didn't really work, because, come on, how hard can it be to tell a couple of jokes...

    I still can't over the fact that it seems the biggest problem she had with the high school break up was that she didn't have a bloody date for the prom.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ahem - I still can't get over the fact, that is.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Crazytrain, Julia thinks her content is great because she thinks SHE is great. She clearly thinks that SHE is just that interesting - not what she does, where she goes, what she speaks about - but just HER HER HER with no context. It's sort of hysterical of how much of a mental midget she is and how she proudly parades it around. I would almost think she's in on her own unfunny joke but clearly she's not.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think Julia Allison understands very well that for her ideal reader/viewer, the point of all human activity is to be photographed doing it. From your good side.

    ReplyDelete
  20. And besides, any content of these Secret Squirrel Tech Meetups/International Conferences/Panels/college presentations must be [redacted]. So I mean, don't blame Julia Allison, bunnies.

  24. Aahhh...Lena Chen. She's a classy little over-sharer:

    http://gawker.com/5011281/worst-overshare-anywhere-ever

    Oh, wait. I forgot: she's a "journalist". She's "pushing" the "envelope", a trait that's "almost" as "annoying" as "misuse" of "quotation marks."

    ReplyDelete
  25. Panty thief, you're right. Her insane narcissism makes her think she's actually interesting when she's really banal as hell. Ironically though, her insane narcissism is the only thing that makes her interesting, in sort of a case-study way.

    Sadface - I have to disagree. I used to follow Lena Chen's blog, and while she does suffer from the over-sharing disease, she's actually relatively interesting and has things to say. She writes well, and about real topics. I like her.

    ReplyDelete
  26. "Henry, I thought we weren't doing presentations on web porn? Oh. Really? Well, great weather today."

  27. Crazytrain - To each his own, my choo-choo friend. The whole facial thing ruined it for me.

    To quote Lisa Kudrow as Aunt Sassy in "The Comeback": I don't need to see that!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have no particular love for Lena Chen but can we all note how comfortable she looks next to Ms. This Is My Professional Outfit Bunnies up there? Can we imagine a world in which Allison leaves the house not only in flats but in a non-costumey dress? No, no we can't.

    See Jules? You wouldn't even have to give up the headbands -- just everything else.

    ReplyDelete
  29. @ Anon 5:20 - I agree on the L. Chen thing. What must it be like for THAT image to be the one the most people (outside of people you know) associate with you? And for it to be shocking, but also not that interesting? Unfortunate.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Sadface, I agree about the facial thing. It was totally unnecessary, and I hate it when blogs that I thought were safe make my newsreader NSFW. (FWIW, I took her off my newsreader because she did stuff like that a lot.)

    But after that incident, Chen received a bunch of incendiary feedback from people who thought she was out of line, including several comments claiming that she, and facials in general, degrade the women's rights movement and are anti-feminist.

    She responded with an interesting, well thought out and nicely articulated discussion of what feminism means to her. Not feminism in the Julia Allison "I invoke feminism whenever it benefits me despite having no understanding of what it really means" sort of way, but an honest discussion of what she actually stands for and why. I respect that.

    Anyway, back to the subject at hand . . .

    ReplyDelete
  31. The subject at hand... did Julia Baugher clip in her ratty extensions again? She is the poster child for cheesy "As Seen on TV" hair accessories aimed at 15 year old girls. Tomorrow she'll photograph herself in a revolutionary new styling accessory called the EZ Comb.

    ReplyDelete
  32. she desperately needs to ask "Megs" for some of that daddy money to buy new skirts. totally barfed in my mouth a littler bit. YUCK!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thanks, CT. I'll check it out, fer sher.

    ReplyDelete
  34. i was at the MIT talk. i was sitting in the middle of the room and, i have to say, from that distance she actually looks pretty hot (up close, not so much). as expected, she didn't actually say much that was interesting or thought-provoking. the few gems seemed to be straight lifts from buyology and other airport books (she did credit sources on a few occasions). it was basically a ramble with slides that included screenshots and pics of her greatest media moments. Q&A was totally forgettable. the room was packed (but in fairness, they were giving away free pizza). in fact, the guy next to me asked "do you know who this is? what does she do?"

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm out of the loop. I've never heard of this Chen women. She's cute though and dressed professionally!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I adore Lena Chen for her articulate and well-written blog. While she is the classic oversharer, she always has some kind of logic that is consistent with her persona to support her blogging decisions; the antithesis of any JA overshare.

    She's blasted Blueprint before, and so I thought her respect for JA had maybe diminished. I'm disappointed to see that she actually met up with JA again. She's so much better than that.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thanks 5:48

    that's pretty much what I imagine people are thinking when they sit in one of her audiences.

    question: did you know who she was...did you find this site after?

    ReplyDelete
  38. has anyone test JA for swine flu yet since she travels a lot??

    ReplyDelete
  39. @Anon 6:29 - That's a little redundant. For Jules it would just be the flu.

    ReplyDelete
  40. JA looks like she's in a superhero outfit. it looks really shiny and spandex-y.

    Nice of her to bring up the bad thing Dan-the-cancer-man did to her (bad Dan!). I sure he feels really great right now. And in the same paragraph tell us that she followed this other dude like an international stalker and it ended badly.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Zing! And Smokey Cupcakes wins the round.

  42. I'm a good friend of Lena's and would like to ask for the snark on her to stop. While I don't approve of her JA friendship, she is articulate, smart, and defends her choices with wit, candor, and humor. I think TheChicktionary is her best work yet - she's a genuinely talented writer.

    ReplyDelete
  43. JGH let Lena know she's committed career suicide by being associated with J.A. Trust when I say many people do not do business with anybody associated with Julia.

    ReplyDelete
  44. JGH,

    You need to study PR, the surest way to up the snark factor is to ask for it to stop. JA might have done some wacky stuff in her time, but she never posted a picture of her face covered in cum and called it feminism. If that's talent, then the porn industry must be filled of Einsteins.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Not to speak for Lena, but I don't think she chooses her friends by what they'll do for her career or reputation. She chooses them because she *likes* them. Which is more than I can say for JA.

    ReplyDelete
  46. @6:50 I also don't reduce the sum total of someone's achievements and literary capability to a blog post that may or may not have been wise.

    And that's the last I'll say about it.

  47. partypants must dieApril 27, 2009 at 6:56 PM

    What the hell? Nobody is snarking her. Hell even I have nothing negative to say. But I also don't like smart cute girls diminishing their value by being assoc. with Jabs.

    ReplyDelete
  48. @JGH you miss the point. When people are seen with Julia as friends or otherwise, it immediately casts them out, period.

    ReplyDelete
  49. CT

    thanks for the link to lena's --

    good read indeed.

    ReplyDelete
  50. 7:04 Not so. Mary gets a pass and she is juju's good friend.

    ReplyDelete
  51. JGH - I was the first one to defend Lena on here and I will continue to do so. I agree that she is a genuinely talented writer.

    That said, you can't just "ask for the snark on her to stop." Or, well, you can ask that but it's not effective or even really warranted. Why should people stop talking just because you disagree with them?
    On the other hand - you can defend her, you can explain to people what you like about her and you can even share examples of what you consider good writing by her and hope they will come around (as I did). Effectively silencing criticism means making a good counterpoint, not just saying stop snarking her because I'm her friend.

    ReplyDelete
  52. @crazytrain People can believe whatever they like, and can talk about whatever they wish. I just wanted to defend my friend, and point out she is more than what commenters might portray her as.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Face it, Lena is as crazy or crazier than JA. If JA did what Lena did, this site would go supernova. That picture is one of two fameballs stumbling through life. The only difference is that JA's craziness is entertaining enough for a reblog.

    ReplyDelete
  54. JGH - That's fair, and I agree. Maybe I was just parsing your first comment a little too much.

    ReplyDelete
  55. @ Anon 7:15 - "If JA did what Lena did..." You mean if JA was talented, not a narcissist and had interesting things to say? Yeah. I agree, her site would be wildly popular.

    ReplyDelete
  56. ct,

    Nope. JA constantly does crazy stuff and then comes up with rationalizations - same as Lena, minus the cum.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I guess this is Ho-lia's idea of an "academic" outfit. Collar, cuffs. Check. Miss Breck hair. All good. From the waist up, win.
    But from the waist down? She looks like the one of the patio umbrellas at my local nihilist cafe.
    I think she has a perfectly lovely figure. She's a total fail in day-to-day and professional wardrobe though. Still rocks the gowns. (But don't we all?)

    ReplyDelete
  58. 7:19 - have you read Lena much? She really is articulate and generally not crazy. Polar opposite of JA.

  66. Anon 7:30 - Cast out of what? Lena isn't trying desperately to be a media fameball some of Julia's other frenemies.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Lena is a truly gifted/talented writer.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I think people just question how such intelligent and/or genuinely talented people can overlook the many, many thoughtless and obnoxious things she has done (particularly as they've been extensively documented) and on top of all of it still cop to calling her a "friend". In a way it would appear they either endorse her behavior through failure to keep their distance or are clueless - the latter is difficult to believe. Although really, public association and niceness to someone is one thing; what I'd like to know is how certain people categorize their friendships with her in private, because often enough I think the response in therein be much more candid. All we see are photos, and anyone can shrug that off to the people whose opinions actually matter to them with, "Oh, she just wanted to take a photo together. We aren't really friends."

    ReplyDelete
  69. Crazy Train, JGH et al - I still can't say I'm a fan of Lena Chen's blog. C'est la vie. At the end of the day, she'll have a Harvard education and will do very well for herself, I'm sure.

    On another note: Julia's weight. Julia isn't fat, not by any stretch. However, Julia isn't a size 2-4 any longer. 10 lbs. is enough to move up a size. I think she should take some hints from Joan Holloway on Mad Men. 86 the poof & go for more form-fitting shifts. That's the how curvy girls do.

  70. people let's get real here. that lena chick posted a pic of herself after getting jizzed in the face. she may be the second coming of [insert great writer here] but guess what? she's going to be judged for the face jizz. and she knew damn well that was going to happen when she posted it. so deal with it.

    oh and on topic, julia looks stupid. as usual.

  71. http://www.thecrimson.com/article.aspx?ref=514692

    If you replace "Crimson" with "Hoya" and "Lena Chen" with "Julia Allison" then it seems that history is simply repeating itself...

    He picked up my earrings from the creases of his sheets and held them up to my face. I laughed and thought to myself, ‘He fucked me so hard my jewelry came off,’” writes Lena Chen ’09 in a Sept. 19 post to her blog www.sexandtheivy.com: “The Bleeding Heart Nympho’s Guide to Harvard Life.”

    Chen, who is also a Crimson editor and writer for FM (see page 18), guesses that 80 percent of Harvard students “don’t have sex, aren’t having sex, have never had sex.” She’s in the other 20 percent.

    She says her website logged 1,500 unique hits in September, and it’s easy to understand why. The blog is detailed, no-holds-barred sexually explicit, politically incorrect, and confessional about her history of bulimia. Her writing is blunt and sometimes pessimistic, laced with philosophical musings on what she perceives to be the woeful state of sex at Harvard.

    ReplyDelete
  72. That's *how* the curvy girls do, I mean.

    ReplyDelete
  73. @7:56 Is history really repeating itself? Lena is a good writer and isn't a fame whore. Julia isn't.

    ReplyDelete
  74. @8:04PM,

    The crimson article uses the term "micro-celebrity" and then there is the "unique hits" being trotted out along with "a love-hate relationship with publicity." This all sounds very familiar. She might be a good writer, but all that momser ghost-written Hoya crap also sounded good at the time too.

    ReplyDelete
  75. @8:11 Have you even read The Chicktionary? It's really good.

  77. It's weird. When people are good enough at what they do that their talent should speak for itself, you'd really think the attention-grabbing stunts would cease or not even happen at all. People will remember your talent after the fact the second you choose to make it secondary to spectacle. Lindsay Lohan, anyone?

    ReplyDelete
  78. I agree that Lena Chen is a different breed of journalist than JA. I think they're both sensationalistic, though: JA with her name-dropping and LC with her graphic overshares. I've never seen either parlay them into anything more than fleeting "LOOK AT ME!" moments.
    Lena's blog has a much headier tone, prob. because she is Harvard girl. But comments on LC's blog theorizing about, "marginalized people and the inherent inability to reach a consensus ...disagreement/negative reactions arising from a taboo subject within a marginalized sector can propel progressive action..." make me think,
    Hooooo boy. Let's not overthink this, kids. Jizz on the face is jizz on the face.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Any kind of writing skills aside (JA used to be a good writer, too), they're both:

    -cashing in on sensationalism
    -using their looks
    -attention-seekers
    -using others for fodder to get ahead

    The fact that these two gravitated towards each other says a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I want to know what the 2nd paragraph of whyte's next tumblr blog is about though:


    Here's the deal:

    My ovaries are about to explode or something because they hurt like mothers and they’re making me want to cry.

    Instead of coming home to pack I got my hair and nails and eyebrows done for cheap on Boylston.

    I have a whole lot of words to write about my short encounter with JA today. Although I just need to say this right now - there was a crazier dressed, crazier crazy spouting lady there chatting with her afterwards.

    I NEED to do some serious packing if I think I’m going to get to Maine at some point tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  87. 8:28 LOL Fo rizzle. I never took any Feminist Studies classes.

    8:22 - Precisely! Talent is key, which is why Julia Allison arouses so much ire on this here blog. We're searching for signs of it and coming up empty-handed every day.

    ReplyDelete
  88. My main beef with JA and LC is that they are trading privacy for "unique hits." They believe that these "unique hits" can then be turned into money. Unfortunately, this "trade" just degrades society's concept of privacy and leads countless women to devalue their own privacy. The strange thing is that this is not fame. That is, the loss of privacy is normally a by-product of fame. Only recently has fame been associated with "crossing lines" and over-sharing. This is a classic "race to the bottom" with negative consequences for males and females everywhere.

  101. Chescaleigh -- couldn't agree more about the hilarity of Meg Whyte's NS posts. Check out this one from December, an email from JA herself. The tone is so annoying and the content is particularly interesting now, just five months later. Also, JA should have gotten a wink emoticon tattooed on her wrist, she uses it so damn much.

    sweetie sweetie slow down!

    You’re projecting. If you read what I wrote carefully - which I’m guessing you didn’t, because there’s no way you would have reacted like this - I said, in essence, “let’s talk about this.”

    No one has an eating disorder around here. I’m taking this opportunity to talk about weight. Don’t worry so much about it! I don’t!! Actually, I’ve never worried less in my life about weight … I don’t diet, I exercise when I feel like it, I love my body.

    It doesn’t mean we shouldn’t discuss it. It’s an interesting subject.

    Anyway. None of this has anything to do with why I’m single - and perhaps that’s something I should explain on the blog. I joke about being single a lot - but it’s just a running gag. The truth is, I’m usually dating someone ;) I just don’t always write about it.

    I was bulimic in college and I know how much that sucks. I’m glad you’re taking care of yourself now.

    Is she finally getting some sleep, eating a more balanced diet? Hope so. As Mary has tried to get through to her (to little avail), physical health will help abate the crazy. (And Julia, really, there is no need to act/dress like a little girl. Cute isn't calculated. Please watch a 24-hour marathon of "What Not to Wear". Trust.)

  107. Narcissist, you're so welcome! I agree, the show was great.

    TJing, I don't remember "cup cakes", but I trot out,"I don't need to see that!" constantly! Time for a Comeback marathon, methinks.

  108. 9:39, i agree JA looks decent in the photo. but i can't decide if it's her looking better or if it's because meg is looking pretty rough in comparison. with that being said, don't get be wrong, i look a hot ass mess leaving the gym too.

  109. Anon 7:54, when you said it doesn't matter if Lena Chen is "the second *coming*" I assume the pun was fully intended? It put a different image in my head...

    I'm here all week, folks...

  110. And I won't start on "Comeback marathon"...

  111. Omg. My friends and i said, "I don't need to see THAT" for months. IT was annoying and sad but we were devoted.

  114. @juliaallison:

    Totally exhausted after today's MIT Tech Trifecta ... passing out, because I have to wake up early to visit Dan in the hospital. :(

    9 minutes ago from web

    I don't want to seem insensitive here, but I am really sick of hearing about Dan's cancer. I feel like if Dan wanted the world to know about his health issues, he would start his own blog.

    ReplyDelete
  115. JA erroneously tweeted Berners-Lee invented the internet but it was the web.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I've had just enough mojitos to call this girl a fucking bitch at this point. There's a special place in hell for people that use their friend's cancer for sympathy points.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Dan has a blog, http://breathingroom.tumblr.com/

    ReplyDelete
  118. yes julia started the blog for him from what I recall

    ReplyDelete
  119. Ok, I've just read some of Dan's posts. If I was that sick, I'd probably forgive everyone...including Julia Allison Fucker.

    Sad :(

  120. Two things:

    1. MW wrote happiness in ariel font, made it green and put a period on the end of it. What a fucking innovator. You're right. JA should have TOTALLY cited the use of the totally original Microsoft Word usage of MW. Also, MW's page (from what I can tell), is not copyrighted.

    2. Why do I feel like everyone one here (besides me, obviously) looks like MW. A total HAG.

    See ya! Goodnight :)

    1. sure, meg didn't design some beautiful logo for her blog, but she regularly snarks on julia so it was very telling that julia screen capped her logo (as unoriginal and uncreative as it might be) and used it on her site.

    2. wrong. i'm fucking hot.

    ReplyDelete
  122. LOL woooooow that was a huge fail. But you're soooo right random @10:13, the meaningless title image steal totally pales in comparison to her HISTORY OF PLAGIARISM AND REAPPROPRIATION. But thank you for pointing out it's just another instance of history repeating itself for JA. We know! You're also totally right on another point - it's arial font, a simple word, followed by a period. And yet she STILL managed to just grab it and use it, so maybe that makes her even less of an innovator than who she stole it from. Maybe we should have provided a better example like her "big clean" image that clearly wasn't created in paint with text. Amazing how many flaws you managed to highlight in such a short, angsty comment! MAZEL.

  124. Make sure you get plenty of beauty rest 10:13. With all the nonsensical fangirl you spewed there it's clear you're projecting re: hags comment. Ask Julia what it means. Once she explains that and the meaning of a happy and fulfilled life to you, you can come back and try to make an actual, valid point. Calling "ugly" to a group of anonymous commenters you will never know or see (all while you remain anonymous as well with no identifying photo for judgment of your claim, faaancy that) is akin to playing a kazoo at the top of the Empire State Building in hopes of annoying passerbys walking below.

  125. 10:35 if their words are any indication, they follow the path du Julia. That is - do something wrong, get called out, try to justify, fail immensely. It's actually cute to watch. Reasoning: Someone draws a stick figure graphic and you grab it let's say for use on a commercial, for-profit site. It's obviously not stealing because not only did the artist fail to expressly indicated "don't steal my stuff" (ya know, because it isn't implied or anything) and well, it's just such a simple commonplace thing anyone can draw it! So yeah! Totally OK. . . . . head, desk.

  126. Oh lordy, she actually posted a picture of herself standing next to the podium in that outfit. Wowsers - she looks as wide as the podium! I was trying to copy the pic here but I couldn't figure it out. Poor girl, I almost feel sorry for her sometimes..she had no idea, does she?

    ReplyDelete
  127. thats *has*

    ReplyDelete
  128. After looking at the photo of Julia Allison standing beside the podium, I predict she will taken it down sometime within the next 24 hours.

    Normally I am reluctant to contribute a pageview, but that was so totally worth it. Yow.

    And no, I do not consider her fat. But that image is so far from what she has aimed for in the past that it's stunning she put it up there. Momentary lapse in judgment, or a sensible surrender of ultra-vanity?

    I'm going with the former.

  129. Betsey, RE: Berners-Lee, that is exactly like her. She'll find out little factoids about the person, mostly if they're notable/worth mentioning and maybe skim the surface of what they do, and bring up their name and a generic blurb that doesn't show she has any true insight or idea about them or the true nature of their careers. She'll mention he's the "inventor of the internet", but unless she happens to read this page and edit accordingly, you will never see the phrase "W3C" (or expansion on it) anywhere - yet it's the organization/consortium that is entirely what he's about. Now she's talking about "URIs" which is a synonym for "URL".. aka Web 1.0, what everyone and their mother has been putting into their address bar since the "invention of the internet". If she wanted to pretend she was paying attention at all, she should have pulled something else that hasn't been discussed. It reminds me of when Charlsie had her intern blog up and mentioned something about Julia wanting her to print of bios of every single attendee at some conference they were going to (DLD or Davos). Given the lateness of the request and the amount of noteables attending alone, you get the impression she wasn't exactly doing in-depth reads to have something to discuss with the individual or others, or post on her site (as we saw through the abysmal coverage of both conferences) as much as find the most important for a photo op and maybe the most recent thing they did in order to fawn and fake familiarity to try and network. She says on TBL's MIT speech "more information to come"... I really won't even hold my breath.

  130. @10:13: that's actually my good side... the other side has a mole in the shape of your mom with funky hair growing off of it. Julia gave me an impromptu lesson on posing, and that took care of that.

    Furthermore, some people go to the gym and exercise rather than take pictures of fauxga poses. So you can s my d. Even if I am a hag in your eyes, it makes no diff to me because I know that picture isn't the best of me and still chose to put it on the interwebs.


    @chescaleigh: I have one of me doing a barf face. Don't worry.

  131. You sort of look like the Meg from White Stripes. I don't mean that in a bitchy way. Also, I'd like to request some fauxga pose pics.

  132. That you get dumped 2 weeks before prom says a lot about your desirability. I bet she was being an insufferable princess.
