    Fake It With A Phone Call!

    On a bad date with a guy who insists on impersonating Austin Powers? Stuck in a boring blah, blah, blah kind of meeting? Got a friend dragging you through every store in the over-crowded mall? Well, now you get out of whatever hot mess you’re in with a fake phone call! Both Blackberry and iPhone customers can now download applications which you can set to “call” you at convenient times, provided the perfect escape. If you have a Blackberry, check out the choices here. If you’re packing an iPhone, you can download a couple applications at this site. You’ll be able to select when you want to be called or, with some programs, even text-messaged. I can’t wait to use this feature when my uncle’s creepy neighbor will undoubtedly corner me at their annual Hanukkah party! Thanks to my tech savvy friend Steve, who showed me the magic that is “faking it” with a phone call, I feel safer this holiday season than ever before. Maybe I won’t need to drink so heavily this year to avoid all the awkwardness…just kidding, I really do wish I could get an egg nog drip! But this fake phone call application will certainly ease my social pressure pain year round. Keep reading »

    Planned Parenthood’s Gift Certificates Cause Controversy

    Not sure what to get one of your best girlfriends or a female in your family for a gift this holiday season? How about a gift certificate to Planned Parenthood in Indiana or Illinois, which can be redeemed for any of their women’s health services, including pap smears, birth control, STD tests, and, yes, abortions. The gift certificates can be bought in $25 increments and really would be a great gift for a woman who doesn’t have health insurance, as PP’s services are generally very affordable. Of course, it should have been expected that the religious right would go all koo-koo crazy about PP’s latest offering and when we linked to a College Candy story about this topic in yesterday’s Quickies, we didn’t understand how much larger the issue was.

    The Last 31 Days Of 2008: Organize Or Clip Your Magazines

    I’m a collector of many things, like shoes, Barbie dolls and magazines (I still have the first issue of Lucky). I never really notice my magazine stacks until I’m trying to find space on my bedroom floor for a new shoe box. Obviously, my boudoir is cluttered, so this month I’m going to go through all my mags and only keep the really important ones. I’ll also clip out any stories, photos or covers I like. And while I’m at it, I’ll create an inspiration board of my clippings, lifting the clutter off the floor and onto an organized bulletin board. I think this is the perfect step for you to also get a jump on your New Year’s de-clutter resolution.

    See all the ways to make the most of the last 31 days of 2008 here. Keep reading »
