Equal Pay Day Ryan Gosling photo

Ryan Gosling memes never get old — especially not on Equal Pay Day, a date symbolizing the extra days a woman will have to work in 2012 in order to earn, on average, the same amount as a male counterpart did in 2011. You know, that “equal pay for equal work” stuff that feminists are always blabbing about. You can learn all about the pay gap between men and women right here … but I’m warning you, it won’t be as easy on the eyes as The Gos. [The Daily MusePay-Equity.org]

I Brake For Yard Sales book photo

Spring is here and that means yard sale season is upon us. Think that rummaging through your neighbors’ bargain-priced junk sounds like the pits? Think again. Yard sales (and their classy older sister, estate sales) are the place to score vintage clothes, gently used books, and fab furniture that just needs a fresh coat of paint. I thought Saturday morning yard sale scrounges were my little secret, but it turns out “Good Morning America” correspondent Lara Spencer is a bargain maven. I Brake For Yard Sales: and Flea Markets, Thrift Shops, Auctions and the Occasional Dumpster is her ode to thrift shopping and filled with her tips and tricks. (Sharp elbows for nudging out those greedy eBay re-sellers not included!) [$14.50, Amazon.com]

Senator Kristen Gillibrand gets the Girl, You’ve Got Bigger Stones Than Me Award of the week for going head-to-head on “Meet The Press” yesterday with none other than Rep. Michele Bachmann. (Rep. Bachmann, let me remind you, refers to emergency contraception as “the morning-after abortion pill” thus conflating it with abortion, suggests the HPV vaccine can make children become mentally retarded,  jokes about so-called “ex-gay” therapy and does not allow her daughters to ask boys on dates.) Somehow Sen. Gillibrand managed not to reach through the TV screens and shake her … even when Bachmann said Republicans want women to “make their own choices.”
