” is back with a freaking vengeance. I am going to skip over Don’s rough sex with a prostitute
(amazing!), Sally Draper’s ‘tude toward her new step-dad (love her!), and Joan Holloway’s bodacious bod
(HAWT!), and focus on all that “John and Marsha” business between Peggy Olson and new employee Joey. (How cute is he, by the way?) Was anyone else as lost as I was? I thought I was prepared for 1964 pop culture references
since I had done my research, but alas I was as ignorant as ever. After the jump, “John and Marsha” explained. Keep reading »
Twitter user Medlar wants to share his thoughts with the world. Yesterday he Tweeted, “I don’t think big turtles ever sleep.” Okay. I guess I’ll take his word for it considering he is um, a turtle, and a common, snapping one with impaired vision at that. His @turtlefeed has 368 followers. That’s like hundreds more than I have! He’s a pet turtle fahchrissakes and he’s somehow managed to gain fame on the interwebs. That’s not fair to us humans who do have very important and funny things to say. Keep reading »
I’m having issues lately with the fact that dating rituals seem to be getting further and further away from “natural”—like where two people meet, like each other, and decide to go out. I already have trouble accepting online dating as a necessary evil of being a 30-something single, but there are some cool sites out there that are giving it their best effort to make it as not awkward as possible.

It’s so simple you’d think it wouldn’t have taken me two, OK, three times to get it. Learning tough life lessons from a bad relationship brings meaning to our suffering. Well … kind of.

I just finished reading what I found to be a heartwarming story written by Marina Khidekel in Marie Claire about a 30-something woman who decided to have a baby with her gay best friend and his boyfriend. After getting out of a bad marriage, followed by a relationship with a dude who didn’t want kids, Kitty Stillufsen, was ready to start a family … with or without a man. “By the time I was 33, I’d pretty much done everything on my to-do list—traveled, carved out a career, bought two homes, and had a lot of fun … I felt empowered and free. But I wanted a family. I knew I had too much love in my heart not to have a baby, and I believed it was important that the child have a great dad,” she says.
And then while she was shopping for lingerie with her gay besties Darren and Sam, Kitty had a revelation. “In a total I-love-you-guys moment, I blurted out, ‘You two would be the best dads! When are we going to have a baby together?’” Keep reading »
AskMen.com’s The Great Male Survey of 2010 only confirms what I already suspected: I don’t know jack about dudes and I never will. What fascinating and complex creatures they are. Well, maybe not complex. After the jump, 10 man stats that I found very, very interesting. Keep reading »
British artist Jessica Harrison’s figurines kind of scare the crap out of me.

In 1964, Beatlemania began when 73 million Americans watched the group perform “I Want to Hold Your Hand” on the “Ed Sullivan Show.” Wait. Does Pete Campbell need a mop-top?
