!New Blog!

So you've probably noticed that I haven't blogged here in a million years. I know at least 2 of you know have noticed (thanks david and colleen!), so without further ado, I present the new blog:

It's nothing to terribly revolutionary, but I needed a new name, and new venue to express my thoughts/opinions/ideas/comments, and, most importantly, a new place to run my mouth. It's tiring to keep it all to myself.

So please, head on over here: and enjoy Mollytics :)

39.3 miles in 2 days?!?!?!?!??

I wish I could say that you guys have been super patient, but you so haven't! Which, I suppose, is nice because that means you miss reading my silly posts. But patience, my friends, is a virtue. I promise.

In the meantime, I wanted to let you guys know that I am participating in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer... You've probably already received an email. Anyway, I'm also team captain for team "Pink Is The New Avon Walk" - based, natch, on Trent's Pink is the New Blog (which is one of my favortie pop culture blogs... after Perez Hilton, of course)!

I'm not going to go into details here right now (I'll save that for another post), but I wanted to direct your attention to a few things:

Molly's Fundraising Page
: Check here for updates and to donate online :) I'm only 25% of the way there, so I need all the support and help I can get!

Team "Pink Is The New Avon Walk" homepage: Check here for information on our team members and to see how close we are to reaching our goal.

"Pink Is The New Avon Walk" blog: Check here often as the members of our team blog on daily walks, fundraising, training, etc. You can also find links to the walk and our individual fundraising pages.

Enjoy, and stay tuned for more information :)

Thanks friends.

America's Most Expensive College

That somewhat dubious distinction goes to local George Washington University. According to The Chronicle of Higher Education and as reported in Forbes magazine, GW has the highest tuition of any college in America. Incoming undergrads can not only expect to learn in the heart of the nation's capital, but they (or, more likely, their parents) can expect to pay a very, very pretty penny to do so. The financial snap shot isn't pretty:

George Washington UniversityWashington, D.C.2006-07
Tuition: $37,820
One-year increase: 4%
Seven-year increase: 58%

The number two school on the list, the University of Richmond, is about a grand less then GW. Also, that's the flat tuition rate and does not include room and board. Which, according to the rates on the web site, can add an additional $8,000-$11,000 to the bill. Now, we're sure GW is a great school, but that's pushing $50,000 a year so your kid can get drunk, pass out and skip class the next day. And, as those of us still paying off our student loans can attest to, you can all that for much cheaper. What do you think? Is GW worth the money? (as posted on dcist)
Wow. Golfclaps to CNevs who attended both University of Richmond AND George Washington University. That won't put you in the hole or anything (I'm here if you need support of the non-monetary kind).

"the morning after" birthday

AKA "Molly's birthday nightmare"
This weekend was great. I was really pleasantly surprised at how much more fun it was to turn 27 as compared to 26. What a difference a job makes.

Anyway, I will post again on the festivities this weekend, but I just can't wait to post a little something on the surprise I walked into this morning.

My co-workers (slash) friends (slash) pro-choice bitches definitely pulled one over on me by covering - ney, WALLPAPERING - my cubicle with Beyonce pictures. Yes, Beyonce pictures.**

Behold (um, the images are all around)!

** Everyone knows I don't like Beyonce. What everyone doesn't know is that I may or may not have expressed such dislike (whilst drunk at Cafe Saint Ex, mind you) in a not so nice way (for which I have since apologized). I know I'm being vague, but suffice to say- I don't like her, and I made it known. So now, the joke at work is that I like my celebrities, "skinny- so I can idolize them." How embarrassing (for me).

Live, from DC, it's SOTU 2007!!

I can’t stand it! I tried to live blog during SOTU (State of the Union), but clearly, everyone and their treo were live-blogging for SOTU. At least, everyone in DC.

So this is coming late, and is transferred from a Word document… and you know how I love WORD. Anyway...

9:13 – Ok, so he acknowledged Speaker Pelosi’s gender right off the bat. He’s throwing us a bone. I’ll nod politely at that. (In real life, I got chills. How cool is that! MADAM Speaker!)

9:15 – Bush looks skinnier, no? Why is it I can’t loose weight after a 3-day stomach flu, but Bush peels it off like gang-busters?

9:18 – More enterprise? Like Starship Enterprise? Dude: Republicans heart space.

9:19 – No really, Bush is s-k-i-n-n-y. Dang.

9:19 – Strategic placement of Sen. Clinton behind Sen. Obama. Clinton wins the brighter colored suit contest.

9:20 – CSPAN joke #1. Way to kill ‘em, Bushy!

9:21 – Sen. Kennedy already needs a drink.

(I simply cannot keep this up the entire speech)

9:22 – First mention of “the right to choose!!!” Sadly, it was with regards to education. Abstinence-only education, is my guess.

9:27 – Wondering when he’ll scare me about those terrorists I/We just elected into office?

9:28 – Ah, yes. Illegal immigrants. Now he speaks to me and my people (minus the illegal part).

9:29 - I think Cheney is pissed that Speaker Pelosi keeps standing up. She's making him look lazy. Imagine.

9:30 - And we have "terrorists!" Excellent. Now I can go to bed scared :) Mission Accomplished, Bush Administration!

9:33 - Bush is seriously skinny. I need to move on, but I can't. If the media wants to fixate on what female politicians are wearing, then I will fixate on his weight. It's only fair.

9:36 - More scary stuff... anthrax, London plans blowing up, bombs on the West coast. Sheesh. We get it. We let them win by voting for Democrats.

9:37 - You know, I gotta hand it to Speaker Pelosi. She's so quick to her feet that she's up and down before Cheney can shift his weight from buttock to buttock.

9:38 - More of the same. Everyone hates us, we're all going to die, and soon. Blah blah blah.

9:42 - Sen. McCain has already checked out. He can't wait to go home and watch the new episode of Gilmore Girls.

(9:50 - I think I've checked out)

9:55 - Money for fighting HIV AIDS in Africa: notable, only I'm pretty sure I've contributed more with my purchase of my PRODUCT RED iPod than the Bush Administration has, but whatevs.

9:57 - "Matumbo: Son of the Congo a Citizen of the United States of America." I like that. Friends, please refer to me as "Molly: Daughter of Chile, Citizen of the United States of America."

9:59 - I love the story of Wesley Autrey... kudos to you, sir. People call him a hero, and he throws it back to our troops. (tear #2)

10:03 - End scene.

Thank you, that is all.

Great post on Thong Speed:

Overheard on Blog for Choice Day

Overheard by NN this afternoon catching a cab from Union Station:

"Why are all the flags at half-mast?"
"Ford. They stay that way for, like, a month."
"Oh. I thought it was for all the dead babies."

Having all these freaks protesting all over town has been a huge pain in the ass. I was stuck in huge traffic jams all day, and I because I couldn't get anywhere close to the Capitol.

Hopefully tomorrow all those snot-nosed brainwashed kids will be rounded up and bussed back to Kansas.

Seriously, don't parents know that kids will sneak around the chaperones and hook up on these overnight trips? Imagine the irony of losing your virginity at a pro-life rally.
