season premiere

Apparently I left out one key show in my fall recap from last week. How could it slip my  mind!

How could I forget about the teen drama known as Gossip Girl set in New York City! I mean, when it first came out I remember making fun of my friend, Erin, for watching it. She would tell me, "Allison, it's not a teen show. There are teenagers in it but these Gossip kids put the Dawson's Creek gang to shame."

So, one night I tuned it and was hooked ever since. Yesterday marked the fourth season premiere and the second time my friend her season premiere party.

With our vacation coming up this week, I didn't over book myself with evening events, knowing I need to tie up things at work before I go and want to make sure I get in every last-chance workout I can get in.

However, I wasn't going to miss Coney dogs, Eiffel tower cookies and goodie bags to kick off a week.

My new watch
Do you host or attend TV parties and for what show?

Damn you, Chuck Bass

Since the start of Gossip Girl (love it), my girlfriends and I have been trying to institute a girls-watching-tv-weekly event.

Yesterday, was our second girls' night in and we enjoyed watching Chuck Bass in his three-piece suits, crocodile shoes and super sultry voice. Instead of our usual bottles of wine, we decided to mix it up courtesy of some new POM chocolate drink. Blue from POM contacted me to see if I wanted to taste test some flavors of POMx Iced Coffee: chocolate, cafe au lait or vanilla.

I'm not an overly huge I-only-drink-iced-coffee kind of girl but I AM a vodka martini drinker. When Blue mentioned mixing it in with cocktails, I was sold - not really a hard sell, right? Plus, I figured my friends wouldn't mind a little homemade martini on our GG nights anyway.

Barbie is in a brawl with whoever the F Bratz dolls are. Never heard of them. Back in my doll days, I had to pick over Barbie vs. Jem. How can you not love Jem? She's truly outrageous with a hot boyfriend, Rio, who had slicked-back purple hair? How could you not love him? What a cutey?

Or you had Barbie. She had the perfect blond hair, amazing outfits and don't even get me started about the shoes. Maybe that's where my shoe fetish started? Damn you, Mattel! You're the reason I'm obsessed with shoes and purses!

Back to the topic at hand now. Apparently Barbie thinks Ms.Bratz is a bad influence and Ms. Bratz probably thinks she's too much of a prude. Hmmm this sounds like real life or a story out of one of my fave shows, which I am entirely too old to watch - Gossip Girl.

Peace out. My weekend starts now.
