The Older, Poorer Gossip Girls
I mean, we both wear awesome stylish clothing (I am currently wearing gray leggings, a gray yoga tank, a gray one shoulder Kelly Kapowski style Bayside Tigers sweatshirt with a high ponytail...this is what socialites in NYC wear. I know that's right.)
This summer, we may not have gone to Paris...but we did have a slip 'n slide AND an inflatable baby pool in our backyard. AND we drank some Burgundy wine recently. I also crave Pain au Chocolat frequently. So, that is almost like vacationing in France all summer.
In Cincinnati, Facebook = Gossip Girl. We are experts at creeping where people are, who they hung out with, when people lied about wherabouts/whoabouts. It is an amazing tool to track a rogue friend/ex who has moved on/college frenemies. We patrol our very own Gossip Girl while sitting on a couch in our pajamas for hours.
I once met Chace Crawford in Vegas. Boom! If that doesn't make me fucking Serena Van Der Woodsen, I don't know what else does. It was like 3pm and he was still up from the night before- unshowered, wasted, and hot as fuck. I may or may not have cropped that photo to look like we were together.
And although I may not have Nate and Dan fighting over me, I do have several exes who plague my life. The Narcissist did call to wish me a Happy Birthday this weekend AND Mr. Biz tried to hook up with one of my acquaintances last week so it feels like a fun little incestuous circle of romance in my life. It's just like the upper east side!
I may not have Doroda, a Polish maid/nanny, who lives with me and takes care of all my shit...BUT I DO have a Bitchy Little Rat Dog who runs around my house regulating.
We may not be models, but we DO get drunk and have photoshoots around the house! I personally like the self timer on my cannon with the multiple shot mode- it makes me feel special! We also really like sitting in front of my Mac Photo Booth distorting our faces so we look like sideshow freaks or coneheads...but modeling nonetheless.
Blair and Serena may be BFFs but we are NonSexual Life Partners...so our bond is even stronger. BOOM! So actually, we may not only be the older, poorer version of Blair and Serena but we are quite possibly the BETTER version.
The similarities are eerie!
