Questions For Our Mothers: Ami’s Mom

In honor of Mother’s Day, we’re interviewing our moms to find out how their lives changed when we were born and what they learned about love and life as a parent. Today, Ami’s mom.

When I heard we were doing Mother’s Day interviews, I couldn’t wait to interview my mom, Mona. She’s pregnant with me in the picture above. And yup. That’s me as a kid. Cue chorus of oohs and ahhs. It’s a shame you can’t hear Mona answer these questions in her thick Long Island accent, because it’s oh-so charming … especially when she calls me on the phone. On speaker phone, that is. She’s obsessed with it ever since she learned how to use it and refuses to speak on the phone any other way. “Oh, Aim! You’re on speakah phone” is how she begins most phone calls. It’s also too bad that you haven’t had the great pleasure of dining with her. She orders everything “on the side,” à la “When Harry Met Sally,” and sends back three out of every four meals. Sorry, Mom, it’s true! I can almost hear the phone call I’m going to get in five minutes: “Oh, Aim! You’re on speakah phone. Why did you say that?” But seriously, Mona is one of the most colorful characters you’ll ever meet. To know her is to love her. And everyone who meets her loves her. It’s impossible not to. Aside from being a wonderful mother to my younger brother, Adam, and me, she’s also been a surrogate mother to many of her students for more than 30 years. Find out Mona’s thoughts on motherhood, after the jump. Keep reading »

Jesus Christ Is Coming To Comedy Central

Even though Mohammed’s cameo on “South Park” didn’t go over so well, Comedy Central is prepared to show that it doesn’t discriminate when it comes to offending religious groups. Next on their list? Christians. Mr. Jesus Christ himself is going to be starring in his own series called “JC,” from the producers of “The Office” and “American Dad.” It will show a misanthropic, video game-obsessed Christ trying to escape the shadow of his “powerful but apathetic” father and find his way in New York City. Not the resurrection Christians had in mind, I suspect—I’m guessing that some of JC’s devout disciples may not take kindly to seeing their savior playing “Grand Theft Auto” and eating take-out. But it sounds like a comedic gold mine to me. The execs at Comedy Central say the show is still in the early phases of development, so they are not yet concerned about the reaction to it. I wouldn’t be surprised if there were public stoning and/or crucifixion in store for them. No one said comedy martyrdom was easy. So what do you think about “JC”? Hilarious or blasphemous?

6 Gay Cover-Ups We Just Didn’t Buy

Chace Crawford is trying really hard to make us believe that he’s straight. He recently told Now magazine that he cruises online dating sites looking for a relationship. “I was chatting to a friend about speed-dating and JDate.com,” he said. “I have a bunch of different accounts that no one even knows about.” Doesn’t he mean he has a secret that no one knows about? And can someone tell me why he’s on JDate? Last time I checked, he was not a member of the tribe. Besides, do celebs really need to do online dating to meet someone? I’m not buying any of it. This all just seems like a far-fetched cover-up story, a red herring to throw us off the scent. If he told us he was gay, we’d just say “no duh,” smile, and go on with our day. Plus, he’d probably be psyched to get an “I’m Gay” magazine cover. [NY Post]

After the jump, some gay cover-ups that we totally weren’t buying.

Is That A Unicorn Horn, Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?

A good man is as hard to find as a unicorn these days. But this uniboy, who looks like he was magically teleported from the ’80s, is oh-so-real. There’s nothing quite like a man with a rainbow hornhawk, hooves, and pink high tops to make an ordinary night unforgettable. Apparently, unicorn role-play is becoming more mainstream and less mythical. As far as I understand, it’s a subcategory of the Furry Fandom world. In case you don’t know what that is (I only know because Dan Savage taught me)—it’s people who are into humans with animal attributes. Think boytaurs. You learn something new every day. [Erooups]

After the jump, some more super sexy, supernatural unicorns that will put a spell on you. Abracadabra! Keep reading »

My Two Cents: I Used To Be A Financial Idiot

As soon as I was pushed out of the college womb into the harsh light of day, I discovered I had a really big problem: I was a complete financial idiot. How did I miss the memo on how to support myself as an adult? I was raised in a middle-class family where both of my parents worked. I never was denied anything I needed, yet I wasn’t spoiled. I worked as a teenager, but mostly used my money to buy clothes and CDs. I attended a prestigious private university in New York City on a partial scholarship, and worked during college to make up for the difference. I was always a good student who got good grades. My point: I assumed that I knew what I needed to know to be a reasonably financially successful adult. Keep reading »

Miley Cyrus And Other Young Pop Stars Who Went The Sexy Route

Want To Look Like Jen Aniston? Eat Baby Food

Jennifer Aniston wants to be thin so bad that she is willing to eat baby food to get there. Yup, Jen’s diet secret is totally out of the food processor. According to OK!, Jen hired GOOPtritionist Tracy Anderson to help her “shift” some weight before her next film. What does “shifting weight” mean by the way? Moving pounds from your ass to your elbow? Tracy put Jen on The Baby Food Cleanse, a charming diet which involves eating baby-sized portions of pureed food followed by dinner. I wonder if you wear a diaper while you’re on it? What will those diet gurus think of next? The Epicac Ipecac Cleanse? [Dlisted] Keep reading »

Mac + Mac = True Love

Justin Long taught us that Macs and PCs are just plain incompatible. Subtext: Macs rule; PCs drool. A new site understands this principle and applies it to love. Soon you’ll be able to meet your perfect Macheart match on Cupidtino, an online dating site exclusively for Appleheads. The theory is that Apple fanboys and fangirls have lots in common — similar personalities, creative professions, sense of style, aesthetics, taste, and love of technology. Now that I think about it, I can’t remember the last time I got hot when a dude whipped out his Blackberry. An iPhone? Different story. And if I ever were to get serious with a PC, his bulky, boring laptop would not be welcome in my home next to my stylish, chic iBook. It might just be my Macsnobbery, but this site sounds fun. I can almost imagine my profile … Keep reading »
