The Washingtonienne Comes To HBO

Did you guys ever read the book The Washingtonienne? I didn’t, because I listened to the book on tape. Anyway, The Washingtonienne was a book based on the anonymous blog written by Washington, D.C. political aide, Jessica Cutler a few years back, which detailed her sexual exploits with various high-powered political types (lots of times for money and gifts), including a state Representative or something. Anyway, it was slutty and juicy and had lots of sex in it, including anal. So yeah! HBO has green-lit a pilot! Produced by Sarah Jessica Parker! Which means it will totally be a DC-based Sex And The City rip-off only with more butt sex. Can’t wait. [Variety and Amazon] Keep reading »

Forget To Buy A Wedding Gift? Put Money In The Couple’s Bank

A wedding hall in Jerusalem now offers couples the option of renting a credit card machine so guests can swipe their card, type in an amount, and, voilà, instant wedding gift, no shopping or check-writing required. The machine costs about $155 to rent, so couples would have to evaluate whether they think guests will actually use the machine. What would the invitations say, “We accept all major credit cards”? A Reuters story says that guests to weddings in Israel already give money to couples, rather than table settings and the like, and this isn’t that big a change, but do you think it would fly in the U.S.?

    The Original Plastic Flamingo Company Is Bankrupt

    The company that manufactured those fabulous (or tacky, depending on your point of view) lawn flamingos for 50 years filed for bankruptcy last week. But have no fear, your lawn ornament needs will be met by another company! The molds and copyrights were sold to another company last year for $263,748, and since the flamingos sell for $10 to $20 for two (one standing erect, one bending over), the company will only need to sell 26, 375 packs of two to make up their investment. Such a deal for them! And if you thought the flamingo lawn ornaments weren’t very realistic, you are in fact mistaken. Donald Featherstone, who designed them in 1957, sculpted them from clay, modeling his flamingos after photos in National Geographic. [TheBostonChannel.com] Keep reading »

    Sign Of The Times: Women At Work

    “Men at Work” signs are even more outdated then Men At Work’s (the band) hits. Okay, we still get down to their 80′s party tunes, but the biased signs are finally out in Atlanta! It’s all thanks to Cynthia Good, one of the founding editors of PINK and Atlanta Woman magazines. Angered that women working alongside men were being ignored by the sexist signage, Good decided to take matters into her own hands. After politely sending letters to the Mayor Shirley Franklin and Governor Sonny Perdue, she got nowhere. Then, not so politely, she was accused of spray painting a “wo” before one of the the signs, but luckily the police stood by her. Despite the hot water, last week, she decided to turn up the heat on her public campaign. She huffed and puffed at the Public Works Commissioner, Joe Basista, and she blew those signs clear outta town. Now, new ones, which will read “Workers Ahead”, have been ordered. The estimated $166 cost to replace the signs is money well spent! [Atlanta Journal-Constitution via Fark]

    Is Your Car Dealership Certified Female Friendly?

    Women are sometimes overlooked as car-buying customers at car dealerships, but things are changing, perhaps because there are more women on the inside — Annette Sykora is this year’s chairman of the National Automobile Dealer’s Association despite females making up just 7 percent of car salespeople. Dealerships can actually become “certified female friendly,” which involves completing a training program that helps make showrooms and service centers more female-friendly, whatever that means. So far, 220 dealerships have become certified. I hear so many stories about men getting better deals on cars, and it wouldn’t surprise me if this still happened at certified female friendly dealerships, so if I ever buy a car, I think I’d want to buy from a woman.

    Dating On Demand

    Cable TV provider Comcast is trying to get singles to participate in their new video dating service, “Dating on Demand,” by taping guys and girls in bars. So, when people are a couple drinks into their night, an interviewer comes at them, asking them to share their guilty pleasures, show a tattoo, or offer details about a past hookup. But don’t worry, even though Comcast seems to be recruiting any willing bar-goer, everyone has to sign a waiver and allow the company to run a background check on them. And the service seems fairly exclusive (or perhaps few want to be video-taped in places with bad lighting), because they only plan to add about 40 to 50 new videos a month in south Florida, one of Dating on Demand’s 21 U.S. markets. This could make for some great late night TV watching if you’re sick of Proactiv’s infomercial. [South Florida Sun-Sentinel] Keep reading »
