For the past five days, we’ve been celebrating “Love Yourself Week” on The Frisky. And really, at the end of the day, what is loving yourself all about? Just being happy with who, what, and where you are. So I was a little tickled today to see these interesting statistics about happiness on The Daily Beast because they’re just not what I would have guessed. Read them after the jump. Pat yourself on the back for the ones that apply to you, and stick your tongue out at the ones that don’t. Then, be happy anyway. Keep reading »
Yesterday I received the same message via email, text, tweet and wall post no fewer than a dozen times:
“I’m sure you’ve already seen this, but …”
The “this” was Robin Marantz Henig’s hefty New York Times article about the state of today’s 20-somethings — an extensive assessment of the way my generation is choosing to spend our transition into adulthood, what our choices mean, and if they’re good or bad. Read more … Keep reading »
In a recent interview, the least popular resident of “Jersey Shore,” Angelina Pivarnick, called out Snooki‘s new man, Jeff Miranda, for being a fame whore. Angelina claims that Jeff is only interested in Snooki to get press. She says, “Jeff used to try and hook up with me all the time after we were done filming in Miami. He really wanted to be my boyfriend. He would come to clubs and follow us around wherever we went.” She says he also macked on the other “Jersey Shore” girls before settling on the Snookster.

This is all sorts of messed up so I’m just gonna dive right in. A midwife in China is accused of sewing a woman’s anus shut during labor? Why? Because she was allegedly unhappy with her tip. First of all, you have to tip a midwife? Is this standard practice around the world? Weird. Also, disgusting. According to reports, before the woman went into labor, her husband tipped the midwife the equivalent of $15, which, if tipping your mid-wife is a standard thing, sounds pretty cheap to me too. But I digress. So, the victim says she was told by the midwife that she was going to alleviate her hemorrhoid pains, but instead says the pissed-off midwife sewed her anus closed using a needle and thread. The midwife told investigators that she did treat the patient’s hemorrhoids but that she did not stitch her no-no hole closed. Where I come from, anuses don’t stitch themselves, so I’m dubious. Also, I am grossed out and am going to go barf now. [Life of Guangzhou] Keep reading »
Facepalm. What kind of bull hooey is this? LEGO has these thingies called “minifigures,” which are little LEGO people dressed up in different outfits. There’s a spaceman. A cowboy. A magician. A deep sea diver. A zombie with a shovel and a chicken drumstick. And even a kick-ass robot! But all of those minifigures — and more — apparently have tiny little yellow LEGO penises. (OK, not really. But they are all boy LEGOs.) The only two that are women are a cheerleader and a nurse.
Geez Louise. I’m actually shocked there’s no secretary or waitress. Keep reading »
