Birth A Kid, Lose A Tooth

If you’re planning on having children, please promise that you’ll continue to brush your teeth and visit your dentist twice a year. Researchers at NYU and Yale examined data on 2,635 U.S. women, and they found that across all socioeconomic groups, women with children had fewer teeth than women without children. Among those in the…

Divorced Couples Battle Over Custody Of The Dog

I don’t believe in pre-nups, but if I was going to have one, it would have to say something about the dog. Lucca is comin’ with me should I ever get divorced. More and more couples are going to court over custody of their pets, battling for full custody, joint custody, or at the very…

The Top 5 Words You Should Never Say On A First Date

First dates are awkward. You don’t know if the chemistry will be there or what to wear or even what to talk about. But there are a few things you definitely shouldn’t mention. Inspired by The Dating Lame and a bad date who described Iggy Pop’s sweat as “glistening rock nectar” (über icky) here are…

Damn You, Bill Murray

I’ve had a crush on Bill Murray since I saw Groundhog Day and his studliness was further proved by the depressing lothario he played in Lost In Translation. So it’s with a sad heart that I report that Murray may not be the sensitive moper the world thought him to be. According to divorce paper…

The Frisky Wedding Gift Guide: What To Buy Us For Our (Mostly, Imaginary) Wedding

Working on The Frisky’s Wedding Gift Guide is the first chance I’ve had to start looking in the wonderfully wide world of wedding registration. There is just so much crap people can buy you! Gravy boats, and $50 forks, and poufy, soft-as-melted-butter towels with monogramming. But the truth is, I would rather register for fu…

The Daily NOTness: James McAvoy As Bilbo Baggins

We realize that scoring the lead role in The Hobbit is probably a really big deal if you’re an actor, but we are seriously disturbed that beautiful, handsome, brogue-ish James McAvoy is going to have to pull on a pair of heinous Hobbit feet to play Bilbo Baggins. And those funny little ears. Eww. Playing…

Debate This: How Did Sex And The City Make You FEEL?

Like you could ever forget this, but Sex and the City THE MOVIE opens tomorrow.

Shopping and Stuffing Your Face

Researchers from the University of Rotterdam discovered that eating comfort foods or going shopping were effective ways to help forget problems. (The study seems kind of weird. Participants had to write an essay on either death or visiting the dentist. The participants with low self-esteem ate more biscuits while writing, which the researchers attributed to…

So I’m Engaged: Meet The Parents

As I said in a previous column, I have anxiety about people having fun and getting along, not just at my wedding, but in life. I’m a little uptight, to say the least. I worry terribly about what people close to me think — though I don’t care too much what people who don’t know…

The season finale of Lost is tonight and I am basically losing my mind over what might happen and also how the hell I am going to live until the next season starts. So I decided we should take a look back at all the Lost hotness.
