Wishful thinking.

For those non graduate students among us, the only indication Spring Break had arrived this week was that new episodes of our favorite MTV shows - namely, "Engaged & Underage" and "The Hills" - were temporarily suspended for more ass-shakin' crabs-spreadin' fare such as "Exposed: Mom Edition" and "Wild Girls of Makos Super Challenge."

And then there was that pesky influx of patchouli-smelling Beck-blasting tent-inhabiting individuals who not only "bravely fought" the elements this weekend but also "proudly served" the role of trustfunder-cum-protester stereotype to a 'T'.

Even though we working professionals may no longer have a seven day period to act like alcohol doesn't have calories, sexually transmitted diseases are for the uneducated and string bikinis and flip-flops are perfectly appropriate dinner-wear, we can still plan ahead for that trip to the Dalmatian Coast we'll take if that dream job - or dream man - comes through, or more likely, the rooftop Saturdays and Sundays that, starting May 5th, no matter the temperature, will be an uninterrupted weekly tradition straight through October.

First step -- bathing suit.

Except for the VS bathing suits, all the rest look like they'd burst at even a B-cup.

judging from your picture from yesterday, there is little doubt in my mind you'd have a wardrobe malfunction in any one of those 3 starred selections.

Not saying that's a *bad* thing...
