Burn Before Reading: A Carly Allen Story

Quote of the Day: 07.18.17

Look at that slightly different angle today. Yes, in case you were wondering, I do leave the couch from time to time. Despite what these photos may lead you to believe, I lead a productive, fulfilling life. Although, in the name of full transparency, I have moved off the couch onto my bed because folding my laundry got me tired. I already worked today, okay? And, if you didn't know, dressing mannequins is a workout. Especially when all of the mannequins are taller than you are. So, thank you parents for that. And I'm only like a head and a half taller than the kid mannequins, so that's always quite the self-confidence boost at 4 a.m.

I also stayed up too late watching The Bachelorette last night because we all have our vices. But the final rose ceremony got me so heated that I couldn't go to bed right away. RACHEL, HOW YOU GONNA SEND DEAN HOME LIKE THAT? She did my boy Dean so dirty. Usually, I'm not actually invested in the lives of the people on The Bachelorette, but Dean and I have the same Hawaiian shirt from H&M's David Beckham collection a few years ago, so I consider him a friend. A FRIEND THAT DID NOT DESERVE TO BE WRONGED LIKE THAT.

Now that I've exposed myself for the trash that I am, let's talk about the quote. It's from Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom. A very charming movie about two kids that run away together. Ah, young love. A KIND OF LOVE RACHEL WILL NEVER FIND BECAUSE SHE SENT DEAN HOME. (Unless she picks Peter.)
