The Daily Squeeze: Harvard Hates Harry Potter, Nudism, Women Voters, And Teen Sex On The Rise

  • Some Harvard grads were a little pissy that their Ivy League school invited Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling to speak at commencement rather than, say, Bill Gates. Get over it, nerds, J.K. rules! [NPR]

    I Am Neurotic And So Are You!

    I’ve thought for a very long time that I have some sort of O.C.D. because I can’t function during the day if my bed is unmade and can spot a dust bunny from 20 feet away. But then I heard about this site, i am neurotic, where people submit examples of their own wakcy neurosis, and realized I am totally pretty normal. But wow, do people have funny, interesting little things they have to do in order to remain sane during their every day lives, like:

  • “I cannot poop if my shirt is all the way on. I have to put one arm out of my sleeve, and put that side of my shirt on my shoulder. I also find it hard to poop with my shoes on, and will take them off if I’m at home. If I’m out and about I will suffer through the shoe thing, but not the shirt.”

    An Extra Special Star Trek Wedding

    Star Trek nerds (Me! Simcha!) rejoice — GeekSugar discovered that the “Star Trek Experience” attraction at the Hilton in Las Vegas offers not one, not two, but five Star Trek-themed wedding packages for geeky visitors wishing to have a Jean-Luc Picard lookalike conduct their ceremony. And, depending on the package, up to four other Star Trek characters will be in attendance. Do you think that instead of saying “I Do” you’re supposed to say “Aye, Aye Sir” instead?

    Slideshow: Mandy Moore Can Get Under Our Umbrella

    I have a total thing for Mandy Moore that is not very easily explained. She’s no superstar in any department, though I think she’s a decent actress and singer (frankly, I loved her album of cover songs). But something about her seems nice and smart and she’s definitely stylish, which is why we’ve pulled together a slideshow of some of her hottest looks. BUT while I was doing research, I came across this video, of her covering Rihanna’s “Umbrella”. She does it in a very moody way. I like it. And normally I think people should keep their grubby paws off RiRi. Anyway, slideshow after the jump… Keep reading »

    Lesbian Kiss Gets A Finger Wag In Seattle

    A lesbian couple taking in a Seattle Mariners game were told by an usher that they would have to stop their PDA if they wanted to watch the remaining innings — a woman nearby had complained that there were children nearby, as if two people smooching is akin to an X-rated movie. You know what’s lame about this? Last time I was at a Yankee game, I saw a couple exploring each other’s tonsils for, like, 30 minutes and no one said a thing. And I didn’t care either for the record, I love to watch people and laugh. According to Sirbrina Guerrero, one of the women in question, “There was a couple like seven rows ahead making out. We were just showing affection.” The usher said that parents shouldn’t have to explain to their kids why two women were kissing. I disagree. They absolutely should. They should say, “Yes, those two people are kissing. Probably because they like each other or even love each other. Isn’t that nice? Now stop staring and pay attention to the game. These tickets cost me $50.” Well that’s what I would say anyway. [CNN.com] Keep reading »

    Michelle Obama Has Sweet Fashion Sense

    So to preface this post, I want to make sure to convey that a woman’s style (or man’s style for that matter) or lack there of, should never be a topic covered by political pundits. It was mega annoying to hear Chris Matthews and the gang analyze Hillary Clinton’s blazers in the same breath that they discussed her health care policy. Though Michelle Obama isn’t running for office, we couldn’t help but notice she’s got some serious style that definitely brings to mind Jackie Kennedy’s fierceness. When she fist-bumped Barack on Tuesday (a moment which made me think these two probably have a vibrant sex life and frankly also made me salivate a little), I was like, “Damn, is she wearing a studded belt?” I’m sorry, but that is just cool. So, with that in mind, I decided to see what other fashion inspirations come courtesy of the possible future First Lady. Three looks, and how to get them, after the jump… Keep reading »

    Numbnut — Can You Please Use That In A Sentence?

    So the kid who won the National Spelling Bee this past weekend, was asked to spell a word that, to him sounded like numbnut. I literally just spit my coffee all over my keyboard. Keep reading »

    Anderson Cooper Ain’t Nobody’s Boo

    Last night on 360 with Anderson Cooper, when the reporter tried to get his guest, Donna Brazile, to cough up some personal information on the candidates, she coyly said, “But Anderson, you’re not my boo.” Which led ol’ Anderson to start using the word too, with hilarious, adorable, or horrifying results, depending on your perspective. Check out the clip above! Keep reading »
