5 Delicious Cinco De Mayo Dishes You’ll Be Dying To Make (And Eat)

While Cinco de Mayo really may be more of a French holiday, for most of us it’s just the best excuse ever for a round of margaritas and delicious Tex-Mex cuisine. The zest and the spice of the fare makes for one hot holiday, and with the fifth of May falling on a Saturday this year, there’s no better time to gather friends and family for a good old fiesta. Whether your gathering is grande or small, here are some amazing Tex-Mex recipes to consider that will be enjoyed by all.

Bizarre ESPN Scandal Involving Young, Female Gambling “Expert” Will Make Your Brain Explode

There is quite a bit of buzz surrounding ESPN today, because apparently they were duped by someone named Sarah Phillips, who they hired to write a column for their site on sports betting. While ESPN thought she was a college student in her 20s who just happened to have a very firm knowledge of gambling and placing bets, some are now claiming she is nothing but a savvy Internet fraud.

While the question Who exactly is Sarah Phillips? seems highly debatable and confusing at best, it’s still kind of crazy that someone as big as ESPN is at the middle of the whole scandal. Read more…

New “Dark Knight Rises” Clip Is One of the Best Trailers Ever Made

It may be the final Batman film from Christopher Nolan, but he’s clearly going out with a bang rather than a whimper with “The Dark Knight Rises.” Judging by the absolutely ingenious new full-length trailer that Warner Bros. released on Monday night, the third installment may just be the best of the series.

Scheduled to hit theaters on July 20, “The Dark Knight Rises” is one of the summer’s most-anticipated movies, so it’s no surprise that the new trailer is already generating a ton of buzz. In classic Christopher Nolan form, the trailer is the perfect promotion—just enough of a tease without relying on the increasingly popular studio method of showing the whole damn film in two minutes. It leaves us feeling excited about the film, but still dying to know more. Read more…

“Knocked Up” Sequel Proves Dysfunctional Couples Are Funnier

We all know that couple. They bicker all the time. They seem totally mismatched, almost like they stumbled into a marriage and kids and still aren’t quite sure how they got there. We don’t necessarily want to hang out with them too much. But stick them in a new ”Knocked Up” sequel byJudd Apatow, give them hilarious lines, and have them played by Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann? Hell yes! Give me two hours’ worth! Read more…

8 Sexting Rules To Avoid Starring Naked In Someone’s “Revenge Porn”

Hunter Moore, the founder of Is Anyone Up?, a website that posts “revenge porn,” is rich because of women and men and their not-so-smart sexting decisions. When a couple breaks up, one person in the couple can ruin the other’s life just by contacting Moore. Sure, he is an awful human being, but the fact that he has hundreds of people willing to share those photos is proof of something else: People are stupid about sexting.

It’s not that we should never sext. Hell, I’ll be honest and say I do it all the time. And had sexting been more prevalent 12 years ago, I may have been the one in college who did it, too (shudder). But now I am older and wiser (I hope) and I know that sending nude photos to someone isn’t that bright. Read more

5 Reasons To See “Titanic 3D”

I saw ”Titanic” 10 times in 1997 when it came out in the theaters. Granted, I was 19 and living in Florence, Italy and I had a lot of time on my hands (clearly, since I spent more than 31 hours staring at it over a 12-week period), but it was a good movie.

Sure, now it seems cheesy and silly in parts — “I’m the king of the world!” — but I was still first in line on the opening day of “Titanic 3D.” It did not disappoint. Even though I am older and wiser now, I have been in love (I hadn’t then), and I generally think dying for someone you have known three days is kind of dumb (why couldn’t they BOTH get on that damn door?), it’s still a romantic weep-fest. Sigh.

Here are five reasons to see “Titanic 3D.” Read more…

20 Signs He’s Not Over His Ex

I don’t know how many times I’ve heard “don’t date a guy who’s just broken up with someone.” No one wants to be the rebound girl. Not only is it hard on YOU, it can be just as hard on him, as he’s trying to heal from his breakup.

But sometimes, you find yourself breaking the rules, liking a guy who has just split up with his last partner, and you go with it. It feels right. So you do it. Sometimes? It works out just fine — the relationship between your partner and his ex was long over and the breakup was an inevitability. 

Other times, he clearly hasn’t moved on. Here are some obvious and not-so-obvious signs that he’s not quite over his ex. Read more…

The 6 Best Places To Have Sex Around The House

It’s easy to get stuck in a sex rut – you always have sex in this one position in this one place and it’s always the same. Great, but the same. Sometimes, you need to spice it up a little bit, change your routines, and get down and dirty in other places.

Here are some of my favorite sexy places around the house! Read more…

50 “Surprising” Qualities Women Really Want In A Man

There are some basic things women feel are the most important qualities a man must have when looking for a mate. Things like a sense of humor, must be attractive (to that woman), some smarts, and of course together you must have that spark to ignite the bed sheets into a smoldering pile of hot sexiness.

But there are other things us women want that we may not readily admit to yet can be a dealbreaker. I asked many women from all over the country about what they really want in a man. Some of these qualities may surprise some men, but I think all of us ladies have at least some of these on our “list.” Read more…

5 Reasons Daylight Savings Time Totally Rules

Forget Christmas, forget Halloween, forget the Fourth of July … Daylight Savings Time is officially the best day of the year. I’m not sure why our government doesn’t recognize its awesomeness and give us a day off to celebrate that we made it the eff through winter, but maybe it’s not too late for the GOP to add that to their platform. Because if you think about it, Daylight Savings brings us so much joy — when we turn our clocks forward tomorrow, Sunday, March 11, we’ll wake up and it will be spring, people, it will be spring.
