Welcome to the terrible majesty of the bray and the cray!
meghan: "we could write a damn book, maybe an encyclopedia."oh god no, please don't. seriously. your heinous efforts at blogging are bad enough.
oh, and i'm sure the author of the babysitters club wrote you to ask about college dating advice. nice try, julverine.
a long long time ago I thought this was funny: http://gawker.com/248173/julia-allison-gets-a-parking-ticket-yes-were-sure
JA's dressing for the nursing home, I see.
Ann M. Martin!But, Fuck Camping, she was reading from her lap top so it MUST be true! What the heck is Meghan wearing? Knee boots, vest, blous, and no pants. And all with a charming pumpkin smile. Meghan-O-Lantern.
Julia looks like she's about 40 in this video. Maybe she has a medical condition. I've never seen anyone go "down hill" this fast.Mary looks nice though. I suggest watching this with the sound on mute.
"Julia is many things but not really much of a liar (unless she's trying to get out of a parking ticket)."http://gawker.com/news/julia-allison/we-hear-that-dave-zinczenko-just-dumped-julia-allison-248139.phpagain exhibiting entitled bitch behavior in that parking ticket video.meghan's smile is very creepy jim carrey/jack o'lantern, TJ.
WHY ARE THEY STILL TALKING ABOUT COLLEGE!!??????!!!!???!?!?!?!??!?!?!
Mary always looks nice, that's why she picks out shitty clothes for her FRIENDS.
Also, that reader email was fake. The "I talked to my friend for 45 minutes" gave it away. Who do we know who has to quantify the amount of time she spent talking to people? Hmmm?I couldn't even get through this. The advice they give makes them sound like the 3 least fun people EVER. It's like "Don't be spontaneous, never have fun, use a bunch of arbitrary rules, insist on formal dates, act like a snob, and never ever give it up". Sounds like you're going to have to beat them away with a stick ladies! Oh and also, it DOES get better after college. For people who aren't RIDICULOUS and wack, and for those who don't act like entitled children (for a living *cough cough*), and for those who aren't almost 30 and still talking about their college hey-days.That is all.
Why are they running that beginning with Mary stating she is moving to LA, she is living with mom [read FREE] and spending her trust fund on $700 necklaces!And then of course, throwing in how hard she works!!!!bitches please. STFU and FYS
Whatever, you should be thankful Mary blogs for you AT ALL. Have you thanked her lately? HAVE YOU??????
Ha NomSociety!There is a shitstorm going on over there, at MTM, Mary has learned from Julia how to create the controversey to actually get the page views. Jacy, you are right, that blog is fucking boring!
Couple things:1. That "A Woman's World," one of the most tone-deaf campaigns to come out in years (as others have rightly said, it's a Cathy cartoon in motion) is an advertiser/sponsor for this series is NOT surprising in the least.2. The massive amount of editing that they do for a three minute segment is pathetic and distracting.
7:53YES! tone-deaf campaign, overplayed!I love how mary does the lead-in and states that "anna" knows just how hard she works keeping up her blog and managing her extremly cushy life.People better thank that bitch for working as hard as she does!The idea of Julia and her panties on a tree, ewwwwwwwwwww
so i reluctantly dragged my ass over to AWomansWorld.com, a cheesy frito-lay ad campaign for matrons. the only good thing about the site is the avatar creator. behold, julia at seaworld, brought to you by her sponsors: tinypic.com/r/jtxrh4/5(notice the wonk eye!)
I will say that the A Woman's World gig is a Next New Networks thing, not just TMI although they do talk it up more than the other shows (Thread Banger, Zaproot that I've noticed so far who just play the commercial) that have the ads. That being said, those shows are great and TMI's crapiness shouldn't reflect on them
Have you thanked Mary today?
TJI thank god everyday that I do not personally know her entitled ass.
Mary-rita is now being accused of drinking too heavily before she posts.... and I gotta say, the comments are making her site actually interesting!Lord love the commenters...but I like you too, sheriff :)
I think Thankyougate is the funnies and best thing to ever happen for Mary. Even if it was a planned publicity stunt; I say a tip of the hat to Mary! She gave me a deep belly laugh with this one.
P.S. She's no Julia. Julia would have deleted the post in question by now and refused to acknowledge that it ever existed.
When I read your disclosure policies and the aftermath of whether or not it was appropriate to expect such disclosure from you, I started thinking about why you are doing this blog. I tend to agree with commenter Alexis who points out that one minute your blog is your way of sharing your life, but the next you are definately selling something. just because you really like it, does not mean you are not trying to sell it. You are a brand ambassador, or am I wrong about that? If this was just a personal blog I'd say have at it, but when I read that you do not punch a clock, this is not your hobby but what you consider your job, well, that changes things.From mtm: (too funny)This is a hot topic, I am sure you have heard of the controversey julia faced with the seaworld trip, and from this I believe that marketing and brand ambassadors will be held to specific standards. For instance, as the law stands now, you are to disclose all free items that you receive as part of your income, I am wondering, do you need the thank yous as part of the proof that you did not keep these items? If I was your tax person, this is what I would recommend. or even send the items out with a form for people to fill out and send back so that you have documentation should you be audited.As a basic manners question, I give gifts [that I purchase] and do not expect a thank you, if I get one, then I am Happy :) but if I do not, well I would never, yell or try to extract one.Just some advice, take it or leave it.Have a great day!
Strange, that Mary would expect people to thank her for the free stuff.
This has nothing to do with the video really, but why does Julia have that weird sideburn effect going on? Seems like a missed detail for Miss I Am A Public Figure.
Also, notice her passive aggressive dig, "I don't MIND PAYING for shipping." Yeah you do, Mary. Yeah ya do. Just say it!
Total JI don't think mary is laughing, now the commenters are counting the hours she has not responded to her thankyou gate and ascertaining how she can possibly clean this mess up.
TJSomeone told her she can write the shipping costs off on her taxes, provided she disclosed in the first place.
Mary and Julia both wrote about having huge issues getting all the stuff together for their taxes this year. ME thinks they scrambled at the last minute for all records of freebies and what they disclosed.
Nice comment to Mary:I forgot to add one more thing to my entry above and by the time I came back, Jen B. said it best, so I will reply to her comment with this: Mary, the other day when I left a very detailed answer to something you did not feel knowledgeable enough to answer—natural, organic products—none of your commenters were thanked for their contribution. I suppose I should now take to my blog and rant about how you didn't acknowledge a barrage of people when they helped you? No. You know why? Because I did to help someone else. I hate to sound like an after-school special, but this really stuck with me when my mother said it to me as an adult, "If you can't do it with a happy heart, then you have no business doing it at all." Perhaps these four hours that you have spent away from your "forum" will help put things into perspective for you. We all make mistakes and some of us learn from it. I hope that's where your head is at now, cos it's a long road back to where you were a few hours ago with your readers.
Hardcore comment, TJ!If this is not a stunt similar to you posting your own replies on your blog in order to garner more than 0-3 comments per post than you are more clueless than you come across. Your self entitlement is shocking. You want a Thank You note for passing on a marketing freebie? These items were given to you to pass on in order to get people to PURCHASE THINGS. Am I going to get a Thank You note if I purchase something from Kodak or Blueprint? Um, no."I am a little hurt." Well, I emailed you when were still with NS about a question you had and gave you a very detailed specific answer with photos included with a wealth of info, and you never responded. Nor did I get credited when you passed along the info in your blog as if it was some insider info that you were sharing. Did I cry about it? No.GET THE FUCK OVER YOURSELF.
Um... Mary was audited last year (kill me for knowing this), so I'm sure she's worried about that again; hence the thank you's....
Wow.Just.Wow.Julia is making out with slippery mammals, mary is hiding with a pitcher of ritas and megs///// well who cares?
Yeah, I remember the audit too, which is why the commenter that advised her to not expect thank yous but include a form and SASE really cracked me up!
Anon 9:17That was priceless, And just where the hell is my thank you from blueprint, strange, I have not received it yet.
I bet mary received a 'thank-you' when she bought the $760 necklace from saks....
Strange, I hear Julia has already received her thank yous from each of the mammals she made out with!
*Mary didn't pay close to 700. She had a "credit."
And not a credit card, a gift certificate type credit.
Don't you have to spend the money to get the credit?Or did daddy buy her something she returned?
Wow, JA slept with frat boy douchebag panty stealers? I thought she was cooler than that. Color me disappointed.
Is no one else going to comment on how Julia tries to make herself sound like she actually had a crazy sex life in this video? She alludes to shower sex, sex in cars, sex while your roommate is around...yet her adult iteration is always going on and on about making men wait for the tail. WTF?? I guess it's okay to have fun in college, but now she's rich husband-hunting and has to maintain some semblance of "purity." I hate this fucking cunt.
Seriously, this content is atrocious. "Tip 1: Dump the HS boyfriend." So this show is aimed at 18 year olds? These fucking women are pushing 30. This is what they are talking about? FAIL. Also that advice is all kinds of retarded. What if you are, I don't know, in love maybe? Why automatically dump your hs boyfriend? I hate anyone who thinks like this. It's like a twisted, fucked up version of the Rules. Please. When is this endeavor going to fail once and for all?
