First of all, can I get a HALLELUJAH! that Mercury goes direct and out of retrograde tonight? Hallelujah! Thanks for indulging me.
Secondly, today’s “What Are We Wearing” is kind of, sort of NSFW. There’s bare boob! No, none of us is going topless today, but I did receive a bizarre gift in the mail today. It’s an “adult party game” called Titty Grab. It’s a card game, but the main draw is that it comes with a very large, fake, soft, realistic-ish breast. You apparently put it in the center of the table when you’re playing and grab it for some reason. I haven’t read the directions yet, as I have been too busy fondling the tit all day. I ever made the editors pose with it. As it has a rather realistic-looking nipple, I guess you might consider it NSFW-ish. So, warning.
I poured through Stieg Larsson’s Girl With the Dragon Tattoo book series in, like, three weeks, utterly captivated with the compelling story line(s), complex characters, and great writing, somewhat of a rarity for page-turning beach reads. Most of all, I was obsessed with the character of Lisbeth Salander, the unlikely heroine of Larsson’s trilogy. Tough as nails, emotionally guarded, and utterly brilliant, with dozens of piercings and tattoos, Lisbeth is a victim turned warrior. I am excited to see Rooney Mara make the character her own in the American film adaptation of “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” which hits theaters Dec. 21. (Check out an exclusive photo from the film, above!)
In Lisbeth’s honor, here are 12 other kick ass female film and TV characters and the women who played them.
When I was a kid, I had a set of Russian nesting dolls sitting on my bookshelf, in between the Sweet Valley High series and Nancy Drew mysteries. They’re somewhere in storage, I think, but this set of Burlesque Russian Dolls would be a decidedly more adult replacement.
Last night, I was complaining to John DeVore about the horrors of online dating, specifically sharing choice lines from particularly appalling profiles. He, in turn, sent me this video. Point taken, JDV. It could be much, much, much worse.
