–>That pillow is a little creepy to me.
Deb Rox saysDecember 13, 2010 at 11:49 am
Well shoot, I already got you an audition for The Bachelorette and a pool boy. If I had only known you would have preferred the Chelsea flat!
RuthWells saysDecember 13, 2010 at 11:53 am
You can come to our house for Scotch-of-the-Month!
Julie @ The Mom Slant saysDecember 13, 2010 at 12:00 pm
I’ll take the Chelsea loft, thanks. I might even get undivorced for it.
Kate saysDecember 13, 2010 at 12:06 pm
I think it would take the Scotch of the Month Club to make the Boyfriend Pillow seem like a good idea. FYI.
Shelley saysDecember 13, 2010 at 12:06 pm
Lexapro rocks. I agree, the pillow is a bit creepy. Maybe it would be better if it had two arms?
KathyB saysDecember 13, 2010 at 12:20 pm
Lofts creep me out, flashbacks from old movies.
I’ve got birds giving me evil looks. Five or so inches of new snow on the ground. Time to go fill the feeders. No bright ideas for Undivorced presents.
Maybe crank up George Harrison – All Things Shall Pass. George Harrison fantasy not a bad one. But, my preferred mantra is “this too shall pass.”
KathyB saysDecember 13, 2010 at 12:24 pm
Therapy is a very good idea, seriously. Good place to rant and spew without collateral damage.
amy saysDecember 13, 2010 at 12:46 pm
bossy, you already look fabulous, no need for gym memberships or whitening strips. so glad you got to hang out in nyc with ree; it’s so cool that you’re friends with one another. hope things perk up all around, holidays are hard when undivorcing.
Lori saysDecember 13, 2010 at 1:01 pm
This utter cry baby uses clear mascara. (which I should probably trade in for the prozac, now that I think about it}
meleah rebeccah saysDecember 13, 2010 at 1:10 pm
I’d love some Botox and Waterproof mascara. But please keep that creepy pillow far away from me!
Z. Mulls saysDecember 13, 2010 at 1:15 pm
My wife upthread must have meant the *bourbon*-of-the-month club. Even we not-undivorced-yet couples can’t afford good scotch anymore.
Alison saysDecember 13, 2010 at 1:16 pm
Eyelash dye! It’s perfect, easy, inexpensive and lasts two months!
V. saysDecember 13, 2010 at 1:28 pm
Don’t forget the Sierra Club membership so you get a list of all the local hiking clubs. Oh! And a woodworking class at the local University Extension program.
The Domestic Goddess saysDecember 13, 2010 at 2:24 pm
That pillow. Oh. my. Heck.
Steve saysDecember 13, 2010 at 2:35 pm
Looks like you forgot to add a plane ticket to CA to hang out with Steve!
La Suzette saysDecember 13, 2010 at 2:45 pm
People thought I was weird to have my divorce finalized on New Year’s Eve, but it was great to start the new year with an overnight loss of 200 pounds. Good luck with the undivorce, Bossy!
Angela@beggingtheanswer saysDecember 13, 2010 at 3:46 pm
Scotch-of-the-month club? Sign me up!
Also, that disembodied arm pillow is creepy. It was probably designed by serial killers.
Seriously, if you and your doctor think you need them for a while, prozac and therapy will rock your world.
tracy saysDecember 13, 2010 at 3:53 pm
I am not even undivorced, and most of those are on my list too!
Scottsdale Girl saysDecember 13, 2010 at 4:30 pm
And lots of girls time with wine! (hugs)
jp saysDecember 13, 2010 at 7:07 pm
Just bought Johnny Walker Blue for a song……….can send you the coupon!
Careful w/ that drug stuff, gets in the way of some of the good feelings…..(ahem)
rory saysDecember 13, 2010 at 10:21 pm
Do you hold hands with that pillow?
Jenn @ Juggling LIfe saysDecember 13, 2010 at 11:32 pm
I’m glad other people know what to say, I don’t have anything except “try to keep your chin up.”
David Meanix saysDecember 14, 2010 at 2:26 am
Hey hey hey- I’ll be your boyfriend pillow! 😉
Free on 18th for party in Phillytown?
Leaf Probably saysDecember 14, 2010 at 5:57 am
Oh…. Well… So I should send the troupe of male strippers back?? That’s a pity, they’d already oiled up, and strapped themselves into their leather thongs…
JaneK saysDecember 14, 2010 at 11:28 am
sign me up for the same list as I am now officially part of the club….except things aren’t as friendly with us as it sounds like they are with you…..
don’t think the boyfriend pillow is all the creepy really; but the oiled up male strippers in leather thongs…..ewwwww
joeinvegas saysDecember 14, 2010 at 1:05 pm
Skip the teeth whitening strips , they make people’s teeth glow in the dark. One woman here has a dark tan and glowing teeth and looks a little strange, but if I remember correctly New Yorkers are kind of pale anyway so the bright teeth might blend in. But skip them
Skip the botox too, we like you the way you are (generically and specifically)
snowwhite saysDecember 14, 2010 at 2:06 pm
Wish your commet page had “like” buttons next to the comments…so many of them made me laugh out loud!
How about adding a monthly Spa/Massage to the list, you deserve it!
foolery saysDecember 14, 2010 at 3:14 pm
And here I am holding a gift-wrapped Snuggie. Sorry.
Reeb saysDecember 14, 2010 at 3:45 pm
Doesn’t sound that UNdivorced to me. hang in there.
runnergirl saysDecember 14, 2010 at 9:01 pm
I can think of a few people I’d love to get the boyfriend pillow for (and hoping none of those people buys it for me!!!)
Dara saysDecember 15, 2010 at 5:56 am
Oh, Bossy….I just wanna give you a hug.
Darcie saysDecember 15, 2010 at 8:19 am
Oh, sweet Bossy. I wish you every good thing.
MOV saysDecember 15, 2010 at 4:27 pm
I always get to the party late. Undivorced? Boyfriend arm pillow? (Although, judging by the look of that boyfriend arm pillow, my mom might have liked him better than the guy I did marry. Sigh.)
I am enjoying your blog!
ruth saysDecember 15, 2010 at 5:26 pm
Hope you are recovering swiftly and back to us soon… after all to have an obligation (?) to the council of Bossy.
Lisa saysDecember 15, 2010 at 6:43 pm
These gifts are all wrong! You need to spend time alone and get to know yourself better and figure out what went wrong so you don’t make the same mistakes again. Things like bubble bath stuff and bath pillows and self help books. Lots of wine and nights out with the girls. Maybe take some yoga classes or college classes.
amanda saysDecember 15, 2010 at 10:01 pm
How could you leave ” A new multi-feature rechargeable personal electronic friend” off the list???!!!!
Hmmm…you must already have a good one!
GrandeMocha saysDecember 16, 2010 at 8:13 am
Lynn @ Walking With Scissors saysDecember 16, 2010 at 2:42 pm
That boyfriend pillow looks a little too friendly. Its hand is in perfect “grab and squeeze” position.
Merry Christmas, Bossy. I hope things get better for you soon. ((Hugs))
Beth saysDecember 18, 2010 at 1:14 pm
Note to Lisa #36: Bossy is funny, not earnest. Well, sometimes earnest. But mostly dry and ironic and funny. Maybe read a little David Sedaris to get a feel for it? Or O Magazine to get a feel for what it’s not?
