The 10 Strangest Things About Being Suddenly Single

So I’ve concluded week two of being “on a break” from my relationship. Newsflash: It still sucks. So far, I’ve progressed from the “so damned depressed I may never emerge from under the covers” stage to the “okay, this may actually be real” stage. I’ve got no idea what week three’s stage will be, but I hope it’s better than this. Still, in the last two weeks, I’ve tried to pay attention to the changes in my life that have come as a result of all this upheaval. What follows are 10 strange things about being suddenly single.

1. Nobody says: “Have A Safe Flight!”: I’m not that anxious when it comes to flying, but I’ve always felt grateful for the times I’ve had someone sitting next to me with a hand I could squeeze. Flying alone, it feels like good luck to have a quickie phone call with someone saying, “I love you! Have a safe flight!” before shutting down my cell at the pilot’s instruction. Not so this time.

    The Frisky TV: Would You Rather Orgasm Every Five Minutes Forever Or Never Have One Again?

    I don’t know about the people in this video, but I would seriously rather never orgasm again than be in practically a constant state of climax. I mean, how distracting. Keep reading »

    Slideshow: Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks

    The other day I asked Catherine, “Do you think I should dye my hair bright red like Joan Holloway on “Mad Men”?” Catherine said, “No” as if the idea was out of the question. I suppose she’s right. I’d need to have the milky white skin that actress Christina Hendricks is blessed with. An added bonus would be to be blessed with this woman’s Botticelli-esque figure, but that’s just dreamin’. Anyway, after the jump, some of Hendrick’s most glorious looks — a little more modern than Holloway’s, of course, but drool-worthy nonetheless. Keep reading »

    Just Married: Scarlett Johansson & Ryan Reynolds

    Oh, I just love these two. The pair, who got engaged just four months ago and have only been dating for less than a year, got married in a small ceremony in Canada. It’s the first marriage for both. Sigh. Short engagements are where it’s at. But wait — isn’t gettin’ married during Mercury Retrograde a bad idea? [Perez Hilton] Keep reading »

    Obit: Paul Newman

    Actor Paul Newman lost his battle with cancer today and died at the age of 83. He’s best known for his amazing work in movies like “Cat On A Hot Tin Roof”, “The Hustler”, “Cool Hand Luke”, “The Long Hot Summer”, “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”, and “Hud”. He was one of the hottest pieces of ass ever seen on screen. Off-screen he was equally as impressive — married to his wife, Joanne Woodward, for 50 years, the two were avid supporters of numerous charities and he was an active member of the Civil Rights Movement. And let’s not forget, he also made a mean tomato sauce. [SFGate.com] Keep reading »

    Bruno Storms Milan Fashion Week

    As much as we love fashion, we also think it’s kind of ridiculous how seriously some people take a bunch of clothes and shoes. That’s why we love Bruno more. Bruno is one of Sacha Baron Cohen’s most famous characters, after Ali G and Borat, of course. The actor/comedian is in the midst of filming the “Bruno” feature length movie and made a, uh, rather memorable appearance at the Prada show at Milan’s Fashion Week. Fierce. (Okay, officially retiring that word now.)

    Romance On TV: Jim Proposes To Pam For Real This Time On “The Office”

    Oh damn you, “The Office”. Here I thought I had made it past the point where half-hour long comedies would make me cry. But last night’s Season 5 premiere episode of “The Office” was an hour long, so maybe that’s why it’ll just be an exception to the rule. In the clip above, Jim finally proposes to Pam — who has moved to New York for three months to do a graphic design program — and ol’ waterworks totally got all sniffle-y. Catch the full episode at NBC.com, because it was hilarious. Kelly Kapoor, one of the greatest and funniest characters on TV, did the Master Cleanse and passed out! Keep reading »
