In this relationship, Kate is the femme and Liv is the butch, and we like it. [Burberry Store Opening, Beverly Hills, CA, 10/21/08] Keep reading »
Last night’s episode of “Gossip Girl” was awesomely irritating. After pursuing Blair for ages, Chuck finally got her exactly where he wanted her — about to give up some lovin’ — but then turned the tables on her instead. It seems that Chuck wants to be chased, instead of the other way around. Say what? I’ve long been confused about whether men like women to be aloof or aggressive. Or aggressively aloof, if such a thing is possible. I’m not good at being either of those three things, which is why the prospect of gag, puke, blech, DATING again makes me wrinkle my nose. With that in mind, I decided to ask the men I trust so much I keep our relationships confined to IM, whether men like to be chased or do the chasing. Keep reading »
MSNBC has always been my news network of choice (sorry CNN, Fox News, and C-SPAN!) — I loved Tim Russert and was always an avid “Meet The Press” watcher, plus I generally just enjoyed the rapport between the network’s anchors, especially during election years. But after Russert’s passing my loyalty was kind of up for grabs again. Rachel Maddow has kept me a MSNBC loyalist — a frequent panelist on shows like “Hardball” and Keith Olbermann’s show, she recently scored her own show on the network at 9pm and has had HUGE ratings since practically the first episode.

As Tim Gunn would say on his “Guide To Stye”, a trench coats is one of the 10 essential items every woman needs in her closet. Personally, I think a trench coast IS the perfect coat because you can dress it up and dress it down and it’s always totally timeless and classic. Think about it — Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn were wearing the same kind of trenches you can buy now back in their hey day. Anyhoo, after the jump, some classic and not-so-classic trenches that belong in your closet. Keep reading »
It’s no secret that those in charge of deciding what and who deserves a holiday, the legal system, the government, and even the universe has something against single people. That explains why people getting married get to register for whatever expensive crap they want and people actually buy it for them — because we’ve been inudated since birth with the knowledge that people who are in love DESERVE PRESENTS.
Well, I’m here to say, that’s B.S. Why don’t we have divorce registries? And parties for people who have just been dumped and no longer have pots and pans because they’re crummy ex took them when he moved out? I got lost four times driving to Ikea this weekend because the ex took our (okay, his) dresser so I needed a new one. I didn’t end up buying a dresser, however, because A) the box weighed 300 pounds and I’m too pathetically weak to carry it and B) I don’t have a second person to help me put furniture together anymore anyway. I did come home with candles, wine glasses, and picture frames.
