*We have always been really fond of the Juicy Couture ad campaigns. We're not so fond of the clothes with JUICY on the butt, but the ad campaigns have always been really cool. Their new campaign has a great new slogan and it's plastered all over magazines, ads, and store walls and windows. And there's a huge ERROR that apparently not one person caught before everything was printed. Their slogan is DO THE DON'TS. Actually, their slogan is DO THE DONT'S. They put the apostrophe between the T and the S instead of between the N and the T, where it belongs. Hmmmm. Juicy People, DO THE PROOFING!
*Yesterday, I was out doing some shopping and when I got back to my car, the car next to me was parked way too close and I had to do that sideways maneuver to get in that requires you toss your bags and purse in first then you try to edge in twisty shoulder first. I finally get in, I'm putting on my seat belt and BAM! BAM! BAM! I get the bejesus scared out of me by a crazy looking -frothy at the mouth-woman banging loudly on my driver's side window. She had a toddler in a stroller and was banging on my car and was fast and furiously rubbing a dirty HELP ME I AM HOMELESS AND NEED MONEY sign all over my window. I have no idea how she fit in the space between the two cars with her stroller. Maybe she was in the car next to mine. I don't know. She totally startled me with her sudden violent banging so I banged back and told her to fuck off. I know, I know, not the most compassionate response. It's hard to be generous or compassionate when your heart is pounding out of your chest and you feel trapped. She moved on to another woman getting in her car. Of course I feel sorry for homeless moms (don't send me hate mail). In that moment, though, I was more scared than feeling sorry for anyone. If you want people to help you, don't scare the shit out of them.
*Our medical insurance no longer covers non-generic prescription medications. This is the lamest thing ever. Generic migraine medications do not work at all. The problem is you don't know this until you've been taking the placebo pills for a month and are dying of migraines and real migraine drug withdrawal. Pretty soon I am going to be banging on car windows with a sign that says HELP ME I HAVE A MIGRAINE.
