Meghan: I'm Coming Up!




Looks like Megs is ready to come out of her shell and show us what she's got! Exciting! Except not so exciting!

p.s. Megs, I apologize. But Queen Bee is away and so you're now it, little lady. Nice of you to take care of her poor neglected dog. We hope you succeed in finding a breed for yourself that "boroughs."


TAGGING MY BLOG

Tumblr now allows you to tag your blog so that you can search others sites for categories you’re interested in. We all LOVE categorization, heck I may like it more than most. We as humans enjoy compartmentalizing others in order to make sense of the world.

That being said, I’m not really sure anymore what category my blog or myself falls into.
Sure, I’m a fan of gadgets, startups, and technology, but I’m not certain that’s the best description of me. When I started lifecasting, I wanted a niche. I wanted to focus on one area of expertise that could brand me in a way that made sense for where my passion lies.

With that, I’ve found myself a little more limited to talk about the other areas I like without judgment of what I put out there.
Truth is, I LOVE technology, but I also LOVE fashion, fitness (just signed up for another marathon), relationships, travel, and of course NYC Desserts! I think your 20’s are all about finding where your interest lies.

Taking the plunge with NS this year and doing so many things out of character for me has brought me to a place where I’m now ready to be a little less judgmental about what I write. Blogging/ lifecasting is supposed to be fun and for sometime now I have felt stilted in my exploration of this medium.
I’ve decided to tag my blog with the following categories: GEEK, TECH, and LIFE.

But, just know that it will be a mixed bag from now on with loads of twists and turns. Since my blog follows my life, I’ll be writing more about my experience. You’ll get to know a braver bolder Meghan that previously stayed polite and somewhat corporate.

I dare people pleasers like me to do the same in life; it’s a great exercise to live without judgments or regrets. I moved to NYC years ago to live in the moment, it’s finally time to start doing just that.

  1. Brave move. Stepping out a bit. Taking a chance. Next step: cut the cord. Maybe even get a job?

  2. ... my blog or "I", Meghan.
    Other than maybe in need of a few grammar lessons, you've already "tagged" yourself with a certain Miss Julia Allison Baugher so ... um ... good luck with that.

  3. How fucking ridiculously hilarious is that picture? What a pair of douches.

    Julia's scalp pelt looks like it's come unhinged there as well.

  5. What is that outfit she's wearing? Is she doing doubles at the Tick Tock Diner in Clifton NJ?

  6. Hi Meghan,
    how about you tag yourself as gadget breaker as that seems to be your true calling? Alternatively Clumsy Smurf-Geek has a nice ring to it too.
    And you just signed up for "another marathon"? Impressive, too bad I missed your comprehensive coverage of the last one and the preparation leading up to it which would make for interesting content, by the way. Could be totally my fault, though, as I hardly ever bother to check in on your blog. Anyhow, carry on.

  7. Double bray + Scalp Pelts + OMG CRAZY SCALP PELTS + Meghan-O-Lantern = Hilar.

  8. "We as humans enjoy compartmentalizing others in order to make sense of the world."

    So she's a sociologist now? Don't speak for the entire race, Lanternlips.

    ReplyDelete
  9. the whole "i'm a geek" thing is so condescending and hateful. what a douche.

    ReplyDelete
  10. So Mugs got sick of pretending to be a "geekette" to please Julia. I'm sure it was no fun doing all that exhaustive research for each new tech post (bwahahaha) while your business partner posts nothing more than stream-of-consciousness drivel.

    Does this mean they couldn't find anyone willing to be a new contributor? Does anybody really give a shit?

    ReplyDelete
  11. "You’ll get to know a braver bolder Meghan that previously stayed polite and somewhat corporate."

    No, Meghan. I'll just get to know a Meghan that doesn't grasp grammar basics. I wonder who wrote her USC papers?

    ReplyDelete
  12. I assumed Meghan had gone and quit. She's posted like 1 post per day since lil' sis came to town.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Jee-zus, there's that goddamned fugly suit on Jankles again. I'm surprised it's not threadbare by now.

    Megs, hon, your mouth is open so fucking wide I can see your colon from here. Why don't you just swallow up that bitch and then you can slither around with a Julia-shaped lump in your belly.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Poor Meghan is so clueless. Even worse, she is boooooring.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I had secretly hoped Meghan and sister would start their own blog: sisters are doin' it for themselves.

    ReplyDelete
  16. God even this is boring. Poor stupid girl.

    ReplyDelete
  17. And we dub her The Human Snooze-o-Lantern. Do you think her boyfriends fall asleep during sex?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Do I feel bad for this beautiful bore of a woman? Not really. She's lovely and connected, doesn't work a real 9-5 job yet still lives rich, gets to travel the world, comes from money and has an amazing Manhattan pad, etc. Sounds pretty sweet to me. Even with the Julia Allison taint to her name, I suspect she'll be just fine. I'm sure she'll eventually find some guy to hook up with who finds her hot and her beautifully boring "geekette" shit endearing, and ride off into the Silicon Valley sunset together. Too bad she just is such a lame blogger.

    ReplyDelete
  19. One of those early magazine articles about her and Julia(pre-Mary connection) mention Meghan as a "former model, a socialite, and works in hedge funds." That about sums her up in a nutshell.

    I love how Julia decided to dub her as the "geek" of their trio just because Meghan enjoys various tech products. How fucking contrived is that? The whole idea of NonSociety came off like a webpage version of the Spice Girls: "Girl power" versus "Live differently".

    ReplyDelete
  20. ENOUGH with the "geek" already!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh, Mega, so tragically boring. I've met so many people like this, who grew up wealthy, "work" in "finance" and have what is superficially an exciting and fun lifestyle. And yet, when you sit across from them at Sunday brunch you spend the entire time contemplating gouging your eye out with your fork. The Tragically Borings. There are so many. And they should not blog.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I heard Meghan is somewhat socially retarded in public. Not in the obvious rude way that Julia is, but in the sad wallflower way of sitting in the corner alone while madly texting at various events. Given her awkward/dull onscreen presence on the TMI segments, I sort of believe it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. If you have all the opportunity in the world and you can't do anything with it? What is up with that?

    ReplyDelete
  24. So you're saying you'd rather Julia represent women in IT? You're a fucking idiot, "anon". Go clean your house.

    ReplyDelete
  25. yes but cleaning house would invovle pickingup Lilly poop..no fun in that

    ReplyDelete
  26. Runaway buffer overruns: Great screen name!

    ReplyDelete
  27. So you are going to pretend to be Meghan now? I don't know what smells worse, your apartment or your bullshit.

    ReplyDelete
  28. "yes but cleaning house would invovle pickingup Lilly poop..no fun in that"

    I took that to mean someone was implying they were Meghan-as-dog-sitter. I don't think that requires you to instruct me to remove my head from my ass. Who pissed in your Blueprint today?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Now simmer down, little ladies! Normally I love me a good cat fight, and I'd like nothing more to unholster my weapon and get right on in there with your red-painted fingernails and your big bouncy titties, so don't tempt me, you sumbitches!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Megs,
    Take it from a writer - you should be MORE judgemental about what you write, not less. Spellcheck, proofread, learn what a homophone is and stick your nose in a grammer and style book.

    But maybe we misunderstood and she was looking for a dog that wouldn't mind living in Brooklyn or Queens - or in the dead body of a postmodern writer. Some of those little bitches can be so snobby!

  31. PP, no one is insulting you..

  34. BRAY ALERT (no kiddin'):

    Here's a sweet reminder of what America is missing -- Julia at Seaworld on the rollercoaster, thinking she is the star of this video by Hispanic blogger Alexander Schek:

  36. Ok, I swear I heard someone yell "shut up" at some point near the end of that video.

  39. "Blogging and lifecasting are supposed to be fun! I like to have funs! I like Desserts! Not just any desserts! NYC DESSERTS! And Fashions! These are my passions! FUN PASSIONS!"

    There is no way this girl graduated from college. Not even a community college would let this idiot through the door.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Fasten your seat belts everyone, her blog is going to be "a mixed bag from now on with loads of twists and turns."

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hahaha someone DID say "shut up!" Although I don't see why, that guy was talking during the whole damn ride. No matter how much Julia's braying is annoying, it's normal to scream on roller coasters. Talking, not so much.

    ReplyDelete
  42. "Truth is, I LOVE technology, but I also LOVE fashion, fitness (just signed up for another marathon), relationships, travel, and of course NYC Desserts! I think your 20’s are all about finding where your interest lies."

    Really Megs? The TRUTH is you love fashion and fitness? And you like to travel? WOW that makes you soooo interesting!! So very different from anyone else in the world. Are you sure you are telling the TRUTH? This blows my mind.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I actually don't think she was doing the loud screaming; I think it was her friend. I love how she's trying to ham it up for the cameras though at the beginning, even while strapped into a rollercoaster.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hi, I'm Meghan! I'm a geek!
    Ok, everyone! Are you ready? Because I'm going to start blogging! Aaaaaaany second now! I know I said that I was a blogger before, but this time I mean it! Right up in your face! Yeah! Gonna put it all out there!
    Geek power!
    I like tech! Did I tell you that? Ok....heeeeeeere we go. Ready, set, blog!
    Yup, going to blog about this. But maybe tomorrow, because today I'm crazy busy. . . You mean I have to write something? Oh . . .ummmmmmmm. . .Geek! Tech! Blackberry!
    Ok, everyone. I mean it this time. I'm going to start blogging A grade shit! Awww yeah! Are you ready? Aaaaaaaany second now. . .
    [and so on, ad infinitum]

  45. I think I may actually dislike Meghan more than Julia.

    ReplyDelete
  46. That's for visiting our planet! Alexander tells Julia to shut up because she's screaming in his ear while he's trying to describe the experience to his audience. Julia is an outrageous attention whore (watch her before the ride even starts moving) and the camera is her dildo, capisce?

    ReplyDelete
  47. I don't think we need a DSM to decode Julia.

    At some point in her life, maybe as a toddler, Julia was doing something she thought was awesome. "LOOK DADDY!!! LOOKIT! YER NOT LOOKIN!!! LOOK DADDY LOOK AT ME!!!" And her daddy didn't look.

    Thank you. Please buy my book, in stores soon.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Jaysus, are all web 2.0 sponsored conversation bloggers such rude effing assholes? That guy was obnoxious; yelling at screaming riders on a rollercoaster to shut up? No. Just no. Even if one of them is JABa. He's the one who should shut his stupid pie hole.

  51. Nice of Jackles to wear that shirt length dress to ride the Manta. Naked thighs all stuck to amusement park ride plastic. YUMMY! Givin' that cooch some real air! Air that shit out! It probably helped heel the green bumps.

  52. It's well known that when things turn green they are past their expiration date.

  53. "I want a dog that looks like me."

    Meghan, Meghan, Meghan. Why don't you get up off your ass and volunteer full-time for a charity you like. You know, people less fortunate than you who don't spend their days thinking about dog-mirrors. And drop the blogging in the meantime, K?

    ReplyDelete
  54. May I suggest a doberman pinscher? Slightly pumpkin smiley, if you ask me.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Um. Just how bad a person does saying I don't think I like ANY of these bray for pay bloggers that Ikea (thank you, Russian Girl for that one) summoned to Seaworld?

    Total Jing: I was planning to do pasta with pesto for dinner, but now the idea of green things on food has somewhat ruined my appetite. Can I refer my partner to you for an explanation for why he has to go hungry now? I will never again say that Julia doesn't have an effect on my life. It may be icky, but it clearly is an effect... :)

    As for Meghan, if you seriously have to think about what to fill a blog about your life with a good year into blogging about YOUR LIFE, it is high time to step away from the computer. Also, listen to Miss Cast and look into the technicalities of this writing thing. Consider it as a dimension of tech which you LOVE so much.

  58. I'm so sorry, Ironic. I cook a mean pesto and would come over and cook it for you but I doubt we live in the same neighborhood. Also, I'm sure your pesto is better.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Everytime you make pesto you will now picture Julia's oozing green ingrown hairs that she picks at.

    Bon appetit.

    ReplyDelete
  60. She ruined pesto for me. That means war.

  61. The mental image of Jankles picking her oozy green ingrown std bumps ruins every food for me, slanks.

  62. Really, you enjoy life? LIFE?

    How bold.

    ReplyDelete
  63. "...but I also love ... relationships... and NYC deserts..."
    Really? You love relationships? Relationships are your passion? Like being adaughter? And having friends? And boyfriends? And co-workers? You just looove relationships? The whole thing?

    What else?

    You know what? I bet you also love neighbors. Meggie, are neighbors your passion? I bet they are! I bet they aaaaare!

    That's ok. Becuase that's what your 20's are all about: finding out if you like living next to people!

    And I think you forgot something! Yes! Yes I dooooo! I've gotten to know a little something about you these last few months, my little brown-eyed dimbulb! And I think you have a passion for something else.

    You know what I'm talking about, dont you? You do!

    It's sharing! You have a passion for sharing!
    Oh Megster! Sweet, sweet simple Megster! Follow that passion!

  64. Megs seems like, freakily excited about boring stuff. SO much so that I wonder if she spent time inside. Like in prison I mean.

    Here's a woman who has money, looks and lives in one of the most vibrant, busy places on planet earth. But she gets pants-wetting pysched about cell phone apps and... desert? I thik we're looking at a woman who's just glad to be able to walk down the street without the screws keeping an eye on her and telling her what to do. This is a woman who spent so many years looking at the flat grey of prison walls that a little bit of her will always be locked up. Freedom, real freedom, the kind that counts, will always remain out of reach for Meg - or should I say Inmate #6520. I guess I feel a little sorry for her. Countdown til she does a TMI solo segment on 12 great places to hide a shiv in your apartment. Or How to Make Cell block chardonnay - using canned pears, water, a plastic trash bag and sugar. Go with what you know Meg. Go with what you know.

  65. I've always thought Megolantern was a wee bit retarded. Like, learning disabled. That stupid grin, the inability to care for her gadgets, the freaky hand waving thing, and now the over the top excitement for the mindclearingly banal. Serioulsy. She's differently abled, guys.

    ReplyDelete
  66. PP,
    You might have trouble with simple tasks if you had been behind the walls as long as Megenhoffer. Locked in a cell 23 hours a day. Only emerging for routine exercise, which is often disrupted by terrifying explosion sof violence. The State does your laundry. The State tells you what to do.
    It's obvious that after the 8 year stretch that Meg defintiley did inside Sing Sing prison - for crimes too complicated to go into here - in New York, that she is changed. She is Institutionalized.

    Have some empathy. It's a long road back.

  67. The idea that Nonsociety in fact consists of a werewolf and an ex-con sounds so much more interesting than what we thought it was. Too bad Mary couldn't be exposed as whatever it is she is before jumping ship.

    ReplyDelete
  68. You ever notice how Mary works out a little too hard? Like maybe it's not just to fit into her summer dresses? Like maybe there's another agenda? A *secret* agenda? And what unemployed "handbag designer" flies back and forth to LA?
    You know what else is in southern california, right?
    Yeah. Exactly.

  75. Meghan's face reminds me of the Joker (as in Batman). But aside from that, she is so boring and irrelevant that we can't even come up with some good snark on her. It actually takes some work to come up with good remarks about her.

  78. Love Meghan's ears. In case you did not know, she gives Dumbo a run for his money.

  79. I am a geek. PhD in engineering and yes, Julia, I am a female entrepreneur (shocking I know). There is no legitimacy, expertise, and yes, even talent, at all to these girls. They are a laughing stock in the tech world and nothing more than "wanabees".

    My suggestion-try actually working instead of preening. Do it yourself instead of someone else doing it for you. Develop a regular, rigorous routine. Take a background seat and learn from those around you. Never let go of your ideals or your intellectual pursuits. Be humble.

    Sadly, this is really beyond your reach.

  80. What I don't understand about Meghan is that although she has mentioned several times on her blog that she 'hasn't taken a dime from [her] parents since college', she just bought an apartment. And she's virtually unemployed. WTF?!

    Can someone please explain this for me?

    In my experience, rich entitled people have different standards for what "taking" money means. Like, maybe she hasn't taken anything besides her trust ir she's living off the dividends form the investment portfolio daddy set her up with. And she has this misguided pride that she's all thrifty and working class.

    people who were born on third base always think they hit a triple.
