Earlier today, we told you two “Dancing with the Stars” cast members were diagnosed with endometriosis within days of one another. In fact, it’s a health problem that’s a lot more common than you’d think. My story, after the jump … Keep reading »
Apparently Michelle and Barack Obama didn’t have a chance to discuss who was going to share a particular story about how cute their 10-year-old daughter Malia is. On Monday night, Michelle went on “The Tonight Show” and told Jay Leno that Malia didn’t want her dad’s 30-minute commercial to interrupt her favorite TV channels. Then, on “The Daily Show” last night, Barack shared the same anecdote with Jon Stewart. In our opinion, Michelle did a better job with her delivery. Keep reading »
It’s nearly October 31, aka All Hallows’ Eve, aka Halloween, aka the one day a year you are allowed to be someone else. So, what are you dressing up as? I haven’t decided whether I’m dressing up this year, though my last two costumes — a Gucci bag and Ugly Betty — were amazing, if I do say so myself. Amelia is going as Samantha Ronson with a friend of hers who is dressing up as gal-pal Lindsay Lohan, Simcha is going to be She-Ra Princess of Power (He-Man’s twin sister). Like me, Annika’s not dressing up (she’ll be drinking Hennessey coladas instead), but her sister is dressing up as a leprechaun, which sounds like an awesome costume. Leigh is dressing up as Blair from “Gossip Girl,” of course.
What’s your costume? Tell us in the comments. And, if your costume is really awesome, send a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll post a few on Monday.

Sad news, everyone: this is the weekend we “fall back” as Daylight Saving Time ends and months of dreary cold and sunless days begin. Of course, the perky glass-half-full types are always quick to point out how we gain an extra hour when DST ends, like that somehow makes up for the endless evenings of walking home in the dark while shivering in our multiple winter layers. But you know what? I say let’s make the most of that measly hour! Let’s put our hearts and souls into that extra time we gain and really appreciate the hell out of it and maybe, just maybe, we’ll be rewarded with a winter that sucks just a little less normal. Not sure what to do with your extra hour? Well, after the jump are 25 suggestions… Keep reading »
University of Rochester psychologists tested how different colors affected men’s attitudes towards women in five different experiments. In one, the color of a woman’s shirt was digitally changed from red to blue. The men were asked, “Imagine that you are going on a date with this person and have $100 in your wallet. How much would you be willing to spend on your date?” When the woman was wearing a red shirt, more men rated her attractive and sexually desirable, and they were more likely to take her out on an expensive date. So this is why Sarah Palin always wears a red suit… [LiveScience] Keep reading »
