Sex And The City: Even Carrie’s Apartment Grew Up

This is Carrie’s apartment during the SATC series. Really eclectic, a little messy. It looks like a real apartment. Okay, now check out her apartment — supposedly the same one — in the Sex and the City movie. The bedroom looks so…neat! What happened? Does Carrie pay someone to clean her apartment now that she’s a regular contributor at Vogue? Amelia thinks the bed looks smaller. I think it’s a little hard to tell, but why would someone downsize? Once you go queen, you never go back. One flaw we’ve found so far is that the radiator is missing in the photo from the movie. This might be because the photo is from decorating magazine Traditional Home, and the editors might have airbrushed it out to make the photo more visually pleasing. This better be the case, otherwise the movie’s producers/set designers have some explaining to do. [Apartment Therapy] Keep reading »

The Jonas Brothers Vs. Hanson: What’s The Diff?

Everywhere I look, those dang Jonas Brothers are there, torturing me with memories. Memories of what, you may ask? Hanson. That painfully annoying threesome of brothers from the ’90s who performed that song “Mmm Bop”. Just like the Jonas Brothers, the young one was sweet and adorable, the middle one was the one the girls peed their pants over, and the older one got hit with the ugly stick. I HATED Hanson. They gave me the heebie-jeebies. Why is it that teen girls are still drawn to this crap? Keep reading »

Women’s Underwear Causes Fear Among Myanmar Junta

Apparently, there’s a superstition about female undergarments in Myanmar. The military junta fears any contact with underwear — thongs, bikinis, boy shorts, everything — will unsettle military rulers and cause their downfall. Panties for Peace campaign is urging Canadian women to pick a pair of undies from their drawer, glue a picture or write a message for the junta on them, register them with the organization, and then send them to the Myanmar embassy in Ottawa. Women in Australia, Singapore, the Philippines, Brazil, and other countries across Europe are doing the same, and while this Canadian campaign was just reported on Sify.com, it seems other Panties for Peace initiatives have been going on elsewhere for at least six months. Wouldn’t it be great if the people who work at the embassy donated all the underwear to women who need it? (Well, as long as it’s all clean.) [Sify.com and Guardian.co.uk] Keep reading »

Girl Must Decide Whether To Use Mother’s Eggs Before She’s 18

This is a strange and sad story. A ten-year-old girl in England has Turner syndrome, a condition that generally causes infertility because an X chromosome is missing. When the girl was 7, her mother had some eggs harvested so that if her daughter wanted, she could have a child that would be related to her (it would actually be her half-sister or half-brother) and not have to wait for ages to receive a donor egg. The problem is that egg-freezing laws only allow the storage of an egg for 10 years, so before the girl turns 18, she has to decide whether or not she wants to conceive a baby made from her mother’s egg right then. She would have to get pregnant before she can vote, and she probably wouldn’t have a guy in her life who would want to be the father of her children! Members of Parliament and doctors are urging ministers to change the law because IVF legislation hasn’t been updated in 18 years. Her best option would be to have the eggs fertilized by donor sperm and then frozen, which would buy her at least another 10 years before she’d have to get implanted with an embryo.

    Living Lohan Scares Us To Our Core

    Just an FYI, Ali Lohan is not 35 years old, she’s 14. She’s the sister of Lindsay Lohan, and stars in Living Lohan alongside her “momager” Dina and younger brother Cody. Ali wants to be a pop star just like Linz! We wonder if she wanted to be a chain smoker too. That would explain the raspy barely pubescent voice. Keep reading »

    Nude Maid Is Also Suspected Jewelry Thief

    There’s been a theft of $40,000 worth of jewelry from a fancy home in the Tampa Bay area, and the prime suspect is a nude maid. The home’s resident found the maid on Craigslist and hired her when his wife was away. The wife returned to a clean home, but her jewelry was missing. Her husband obviously can’t give police a description of what the nude maid was wearing to aid police investigation. [ABCActionNews.com] Keep reading »

    Stay Away From Strange “Aphrodisiacs”

    A 35-year-old man in New York died after ingesting a small piece of an aphrodisiac made from toad venom. The man went to the hospital complaining of chest and abdominal pains, but doctors were unable to treat him. The aphrodisiac, a hardened resin that contains chemicals known to disrupt heart rhythms, is supposed to be applied topically rather than ingested, but authorities say even that can be harmful. If you’re feeling the need to spice things up in bed, don’t buy anything sold under these names: Piedra, Love Stone, Jamaican Stone, Black Stone, or Chinese Rock. [Gothamist] Keep reading »
