Woman Gives Birth Alone On The Subway At 1:30 A.M.

I am proud of myself when I kill a spider without bursting into tears and shrieking. So I can’t imagine what it must be like to give birth on a subway car. Alone. In the middle of the night. But that’s exactly what Wanda Dueno, 24, of Philadelphia did two nights ago. While visiting family…

June 28: What Are We Wearing Today?

I’m at Day 2 of what I’m now calling “A Very Big Sign That I Need To Get Off My Lazy Ass And Go To The Gym” aka the gymnastics Olympic trials. Later on today, I’m going to see the male gymnasts compete for a spot on the Olympic team. Parallel bars are my favorite!

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY

I HAVE BEEN INFORMED THAT TODAY, JUNE 28, 2012, IS INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY. A SPECIAL CAPS LOCK MEMORY FOR YOU IN HONOR OF THE DAY: I ONCE WORKED FOR SOMEONE WHO DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT THE EXISTENCE OF THE CAPS LOCK BUTTON AND SHE SENT AN URGENT E-MAIL TO OUR IT GUY SAYING THAT HER…

What’s Happening To The Women Of Juarez?

The border city of Juarez, Mexico — found just across the river from El Paso — has a woman problem. Women disappear, are sexually abused, and they often — way too often — wind up dead.  The women are young and hopeful — some of Juarez’s victims are as young as 13. And their discarded…

Why Not Brand Your Spouse’s Ring Finger To Keep Them From Cheating?

If you’re unsure of your partner’s ability to remain faithful, there’s a solution for you. TheCheeky.com is selling an anti-cheating wedding band that imprints the words “I’m Married” on your partner’s finger. So, should they try to slip off their wedding band to appear unmarried, they’ll be caught. How diabolical. Bwahahaha. Actually, no. Let’s review…

That’s A Lot Of Look: Katy Perry Mall-Gothin’ It At LAX

In the immortal words of the late Amy Winehouse, what kind of fuckery is this? On Tuesday, we speculated that repeat style offender Katy Perry seemed to be getting her sartorial shit together but, um, do you think we might be able to backpedal a bit on that one? Granted, she’s just going to the airport…

Style 911: All Your Wedding Fashion Questions, Answered!

Wedding traditions have changed a lot over the years, and many of the hard and fast dos and don’ts of wedding style have fallen by the wayside.

Sexed-Up Science PSA Fails To Attract Potential Female Scientists

Women hold less than 25 percent of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) jobs within the field, and are less likely than males to work in a STEM occupation. But while I understand that there is a severe lack of women within the science field, this PSA out of the European Union of what my days would…

Are You Offended By This Big Gay Oreo?

For some reason, silliness abounds anytime treating gay folks like human beings comes up. The latest comes courtesy of this big, gay Oreo cookie — a “rainbow” cookie which Nabisco/Kraft Foods posted on their Facebook page to celebrate Gay Pride this weekend. The “rainbow” Oreo included the offensive, offensive caption, “Proudly support love! June 25…

Nora Ephron, The Original Ladyblogger

When I saw on Twitter on Tuesday night that the iconic writer Nora Ephron had passed away, I felt the sort of panic you feel when someone you know in real life is in trouble. Though I’d met Nora Ephron several times in the past few years at parties, I could hardly say I knew…

Love It Or Leave It: Miley Cyrus’s Racy Aussie Awards Look?

Miley Cyrus is a betrothed woman now, and disregarding the fact that she looks like she is 35, the artist formerly known as Hannah Montana seems to be making strides to up the maturity of her style game — on the red carpet, at least. I mean, have you seen this girl’s “casual” outfits? Very…

When Fox News And CNN Got The SCOTUS Health Care Ruling Wrong

Remember this morning, when the Supreme Court upheld Obama’s health care law? That was awesome. But in the moments after the ruling came down, there was mass confusion about what it all meant. After all, Supreme Court rulings aren’t just like, YAY or NAY. They’re hundreds of complexly worded legal documents. So because both CNN…

Lykke Li Dares To Cover “Silver Springs” By Fleetwood Mac

I was scared to hear Lykke Li’s cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Silver Springs” on the soon-to-be-released album Just Tell Me That You Want Me — A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac as it is my favorite song of all time. I know I like to exaggerate, but I am not exaggerating this time. It is seriously…

Hitched: How To Be A Good Wedding Guest

I didn’t know how bad I was at being a wedding guest until I had my own wedding. I was bad about gifts and good about stiffing bartenders. Worst of all, I was terrible about crying on the dance floor when the DJ played “All The Single Ladies” because I was fresh off a breakup.

The Most Uncomfortable Pants In The World

There’s being a wino (like our own Amelia), and then there’s being a freaking wino, and wearing pants made out of wine corks. I mean, how crazy unbelievably uncomfortable must that be? Also, it’s probably nearly impossible to sit down. If that’s not enough, maybe you want to wear a blazer out of wood? It’ll really…

Ann Curry Says A Tearful Goodbye To “Today”

Not for nothing, but I think Ann Curry is getting the ass end of the donkey here. Sure, her celebrity interview style was a bit uncomfortable to watch, but she’s also an incredibly accomplished journalist with a lifetime’s worth of amazing international news coverage under her belt. This woman is one of our shining stars,…
