All You Can Do Is Laugh At It

Ugh. I don’t even like seeing it on the page. Also, what is “fake” mayo?

There are definitely days in my life where nothing too extraordinary happens, and I tend to fall into a lull of security, thinking that maybe we’ve turned a corner, and a sense of normalcy in my life will reign forever. Then, something happens to remind me that normal will never be in the cards. There will never be a time when things aren’t utterly ridiculous. The crazy will always be following me. Case and point, an email I received yesterday:

A Brief Rundown of What’s Going on With My Facebook Page

I’m sure it’s been said that you can tell a lot from someone by looking at their Facebook page. This is totally true. There’s no way at all that someone would be merely projecting a false outward appearance to the world to make everyone think they’re super cool, super secure, super busy and super happy with their life. Sarcasm noted.

Fortunately for all of you, my own Facebook page is pretty much like talking right to me. But on further study, that it absolutely horrifying. Do you know the kind of crazy that is going on all over my Facebook page right now?!? Well, I’m going to show you.

Behind the Scenes: Call Me Maybe Video Shoot

So this “Call Me Maybe” phenomenon has more juice in it than I first expected. First Bieber, than me and my friends, then Katy Perry and James Franco, and now the Harvard baseball team is on board! No one can resist it!

Since you all are clearly calling for more, I’ve decided to give you a behind the scenes look at our video shoot (I’m also milking this for blog hits). From the very serious choreography of Brett Turnbull and Mychala Coughlin to the ridiculous light stick hats belonging to Biz Inc., I could not love these videos more. There’s also an appearance by Scout Ankeles! If only all of this could have made it into the final version!

So enjoy this peek into the making of our video!

Called It! The Carroll-Marks Edition

Because Audrey and I consider ourselves “tastemakers” in that we always (or, you know, sometimes) are behind a trend before it gets popular, we wanted to make a list of things we “called” before everyone else in the nation. We at first wanted to entitle this list “Suck It!” but then we realized we’re adult people with jobs that we’d probably like to keep and we shouldn’t go around telling everyone to “suck it.” Some of you deserve it, but we’re not going to name names. We’re ladies. So for a few hours yesterday we made a list of all the things we were up on before all of you. And here it is in its entirety. Also, we need a lot of validation.

Editor’s Note: In case you were wondering, Carroll-Marks is either the future currency of the country I’m going to create when I secede from the Union, or mine and Audrey’s future last name when we finally breakdown and have our same-sex wedding at City Hall because we’re in desperate need of Kitchen Aide appliances and knives from Williams-Sonoma. It’s patented so don’t try to steal it.

Call Me, Maybe?

Ok. So last week, Justin Bieber threw down this video for his pal Carly Rae Jepsen, and, yeah, I took it as a challenge (and basically as a way to sing and dance around my apartment with a purpose). I called everyone I knew to get this thing going. Some of them might not be speaking to me anymore. But there were the brave few who knew that this World Premiere First Ever NoMad Blog Music Video Production was going to be epic. And they were right. The conversation went something like this:

Me: I want to make this video so I need you to record yourself lip syncing to this song and then send it to me.
Loved One: Done.

Brett Turnbull’s Bucket List

This past weekend I had the pleasure of babysitting my godson and cousin, Brett Turnbull. He’s nine and he’s awesome. If you’ve never read the story of this year’s best school photo, I’ve placed it here for you, and I suggest you do it now. It’s ok. We’ll wait. Let us know when you’re finished.

Ok, you’re back. So Brett and I had a lot of car time together this weekend because we’re both very popular and very busy. On one of our treks together, Brett sat quietly in deep thought for a good 10 minutes before turning to me and saying: “I’m really glad I’m not afraid of airplanes anymore.”

A Picture’s Worth 1,000 Words

I snagged this picture off the website for the photographer at my cousin Fallon’s wedding. Do not tell. And in exchange for your silence, I’ll let you help me decide which direction I should take the tele/screenplay that I’m developing based on said photo. Your choices are below. Choose wisely. The future of American culture is in your hands.

When GChat Conversations Go Terribly Wrong

Photo courtesy of The Daily Beast

It seems to me that more and more frequently, my well-intentioned gchats with one Audrey Marks veer off into a realm of absurdity that most sane people should really stay away from. Fortunately, we’re neither sane, nor do we think that any of the things listed below are absurd or ridiculous. Just as we believe our future band Oh, Hey Girl, which only performs cover songs of famous cover songs, will be extremely lucrative and one day lead to an E! True Hollywood Story two-part special. (You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.)

Today’s object of conversation, Joe Kennedy III and a meteoric rise to the White House for a new, modern version of Camelot. I cast myself as first lady, obviously. And, go.

I’m Going to Have to Speak to Someone About This

And here I was thinking that I was only going to be 28 on my next birthday. Apparently I need to flip that number and make it 82!

So I get home last night from a tough, rainy day in the city to find this on the kitchen table, along with my mom laughing because she knew I was going to throw a fit when I found it. I knew working in Manhattan had aged me, but not this much!

Since We’re On the Topic of School Pictures

I can’t find the now infamous library bookshelves picture. But it will be found, if not for this blog than for the fact that my parents should know where all my school photos are and I’m a little offended that they don’t. Also they should all be framed.

Anyway, I did find three gems for you which I’ve placed above. They are arranged chronologically. They are awesome. Not as awesome as Brett’s. But right up there.

I’m going to break these down one by one, because I feel like they need explaining. Their amazingness can not be fully comprehended just on a glance. So here it goes:
