There are some achievements in life that are worthy of beaming pride and perhaps a little bragging. Winning the Nobel Peace Prize! Selling your first novel! Getting a cool new job! And then there are some achievements in life that are not so much “achievements” as fairly normal life experiences that feel just as victorious, that have you beaming with pride, and bragging to anyone who’ll listen (including on Facebook and Twitter). Here are five moments of pride that disproportionate to what I’ve actually achieved. Keep reading »

Walking into a bookstore can be overwhelming. And heaven forfend you go onto Amazon! There are so many books out there that it makes you wonder why they’re always saying the publishing industry is in its death throes. If you know you’re looking for a copy of The Hunger Games, then you’re golden, but lots of readers just like to browse for something good to read. That is, until we start ripping our hair out. 

I conferred with The Frisky staff and came up with a list of books we think every woman needs to read in her lifetime. We’ve got novels. We’ve got self-help. We’ve got cookbooks. We’ve got academic-y stuff. And we’ve all been changed for the better and felt a little less alone in life, thanks to this list right here… Keep reading »

Don Draper’s Relationships On “Mad Men,” From Most To Least Dysfunctional

As a woman who loves “Mad Men,” which returns to AMC this Sunday, I’m both besotted with and disgusted by Don Draper, who somehow manages to be both tenderly flawed and nakedly brutal at the same time. Don burns through women faster than some people change socks. Some of those women try to change him (and fail). Some try to redeem him (and fail). Some try to find some spark of humanity in him to connect with (and fail disastrously). Many have amazing sex with him, but so far, none have saved him. Don and his women are often so damaged by their encounters that we thought it would be interesting to rank these relationships by how healthy they are for both players. Below, Don Draper’s sexual relationships, ranked from most to least dysfunctional. Keep reading »

Hitched: Should We Go To Premarital Counseling?

Hitched
Can you throw a cheap wedding in this day and age? Read More »

The State of Texas, beautiful and God-blessed land led by the white conservative men Jesus always intended it to be led by, rewards people who go to premarital counseling. The prize? You get to waive your license fee and don’t have a three-day waiting period between obtaining the license and getting married.

I discovered this fun new law while checking out marriage licenses generally, and learned that as of March 1, 2011, Texans getting married can either pay an increased fee for a license or get their asses to a counselor for an eight-hour course that will allow them to waive it.

The program is called, barfily enough, Twogether in Texas. I figured hey, if we can waive the fee and get counseling, that might be kind of cool. Of course, it’ll have to be free counseling because otherwise, there’s no money saved in waiving the fee. And we’re sure not paying a stranger hundreds of dollars to tell us we love each other and agree on major life issues like children (not for us, thanks), money (let’s make a reasonable amount of it and share it with each other) and religion (we’ll pass). Duh. That’s why we’re getting married. Keep reading »

Casting “Fifty Shades Of Grey” With Actors We Wish Would Do Gratuitous Hardcore Sex On Screen

This weekend, I read approximately 600 pages of the dirty smutty smut smut called Fifty Shades of Grey. I’m currently almost to the end of the second book in the trilogy and was up till 2 a.m. because I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen next in the Red Room of Pain. Given that it’s incredibly juicy yet poorly written, I’m confident the Fifty Shades series is the new Twilight and a movie is imminent (which is fitting considering Fifty Shades was originally written as Twilight fanfic). Forgetting, for a second, that most Hollywood stars probably wouldn’t do the kind of explicit sex scenes that would do the series justice, I decided to cast the movie based on who I see in the roles. Click on to find out who I’d like to see play Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele, “Mrs. Robinson,” and everyone else of importance in the series (at least through most of book two). (Warning: some spoilers ahead!) Keep reading »
