Geeks need love, too, and one of them apparently needs the quirkiest engagement ring box in existence: it’s shaped like TARDIS, the time-traveling police call box from “Dr. Who.” So did she say yes? Or is she holding out for David Tennant or Matt Smith? [The Mary Sue]

Today's Lady News photo
  • Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has signed into law an increased “waiting period” between the time a pregnant woman views a mandatory ultrasound and when she can have her abortion. The law also says the woman will be offered an opportunity to hear a fetal heartbeat. Such “waiting period” abortion laws are considered by pro-choice activists to be an anti-abortion ploy to make obtaining an abortion more difficult for a women, because it requires more doctor appointments and more time away from work/life. [NOLA.com]
  • The House of Representatives has approved language for a Homeland Security bill that bans women in immigrant detention facilities from receiving abortions, in most cases. Because if there is any woman who is at the perfect place in her life to have a child, it’s one locked inside immigration detention, right? [The Hill]

Nerd Girl Porn: Hot Carpenters Of Film & TV

It’s not hard to understand why screenwriters love to make the male lead some kind of carpenter or woodworker: its a vaguely “manly” sounding job yet free-spirited and there’s ample opportunity to take their shirts off. I realized this the other night when I saw “Peace, Love & Misunderstanding” and fell head over heels in lust with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays Catherine Keener’s super-sensitive love interest yet is also a manly-man carpenter. He’s a poor man’s Javier Bardem, but I won’t have to shank Penelope Cruz to get him in bed. Mmm-mmm. You can hammer my nail anytime, Jeffrey. Screw my bolts. Level my 2-x-4. Drill, baby, drill!

Enough with the double entendres. After the jump, eight more hot carpenters of film and television. I’m sure you’ll be impressed with how well they work with their wood. (Sorry.)
