What Are Your Springtime Resolutions?

Winter sucks. It’s officially over now, I know, but I’ve found myself thinking about its long dark days now that I’ve been enjoying my comfortable outdoor freedom. I’ve been stopping to smell the flowers (magnolias and not roses yet, it’s true, but the point of the saying remains!). I read a book on my porch,…

I Love Lipstick

Truth to tell, that lipstick survey — the one that says lipstick is, well, over — has been bumming me out. I love the stuff. But this wasn’t always the case. When I was a little girl in the ’80s watching my mother slather bright pinks across her cheeks and perky blues over her lids,…

Happy Meal Shows No Decay After One Year On A Shelf

Of course we all know fast food is gross. There’s the greasiness, the saturated fat, the unholy mass of calories just waiting to glom onto your thighs and live there forever and ever having little fat babies. Plus, what is that stuff even made of? We don’t know. But we do know it’s far worse…

Giant Freaking Space Rose

NASA is neat! With the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (or WISE), they’ve captured an image they’ve likened to a “cosmic rosebud blossoming with new stars.” The red-hot glow emanates from the lusty young stars, while the green leaves are created by polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. And awesomeness. So there you have it, a rose chilling out…

Finding Perfect-Fitting Jeans Is Hell

Two years ago I found the perfect pair of blue jeans. I love them. I love them the way I love ice cream on hot summer days or smiles from strangers. They make me feel good because they’re perfect. They’re a dark-wash that makes colored shirts pop and my thighs shrink as if by magic.

Porn For Bibles

In a move upsetting mothers, pastors, rabbis, and priests (this could be the start of a really good joke), Atheist Agenda, a campus club at the University of Texas at San Antonio, is offering pornography in exchange for Bibles, or any other sacred religious text. I remember when I was in college, “Preacher Joe” used…

Maryland To Recognize Same-Sex Marriages Performed in Other States

I have a friend who came to the United States from Israel to sing opera. He’s kind and funny, and when he sings, the air fills and tingles with his music. But too often, I’ve seen him looking sadly distant. He married his boyfriend last year in Connecticut, but then had to put him o…

Quotable: Chris Brown Believes Tiger Woods Deserves A Second Chance

“Whatever [Woods’] personal life is, and this goes for me and him, his personal life is his personal life. Nobody has the right to place judgment or make any judgment on anybody else’s personal life when they’re not directly involved with them. I know my fans gave me a second chance. I think people alway…

Girl Talk: Finding Forgiveness For A Friend’s Assault

My best friend in the world was attacked. Her ex, upset and drunk one night, followed her home and up the stairs to her apartment door. Before she could close it, he’d muscled it open. She tried to force the weight of her body against it, to hold it shut. And couldn’t. He came through.

Woman Vs. Doctor: The Breast Cancer Screening Debate

I love my boobs. I even love the plethora of words to describe them: melons, knockers, headlights, hooters, jugs, bazoombas … My girls are small but perky and look fantastic in strapless dresses and T-shirts. I plan to keep them forever. So last year when the United States Preventative Services Task Force changed its recommendatio…

Cuddle Fight! Life-Size Edward And Jacob Body Pillows Want To Watch You Sleep

So this is creepy. Etsy seller Manllow has concocted the ultimate lonely “Twilight” fan’s companion — life-size body pillows that are “half man half pillow.” Edward and Jacob’s faces have been screen-printed over soft, snuggly pillow bodies for your cuddling pleasure! Unfortunately, the pillows are anatomically incorrect in their downstairs parts, like horrible Muppets. But…

The Best (Non-Traditional) Valentine’s Day Ever

I used to view Valentine’s Day as annual torture from pink fluffy teddy bears, questionable lingerie advertisements, and the Hallmark overlords. So much worse than the iron maiden. Every year, V-Day signaled the boys I dated to forget everything they knew about me and my otherwise sane girlfriends to either retreat into nauseous couple cute-love…
