I bought a lamp at a thrift store for $1.95 over the summer. It’s a beautiful thing — white porcelain with tiny gold stars along its edges. The only problem was that it didn’t turn on when I plugged it in. The lamp sat at home, useless, until I finally got fed up and went to Home Depot. A nice older man taught me about rewiring, and I even learned how to do an underwriters knot! Take the next couple weeks to complete the project you’ve had on hold for ages. Just do it, okay?

Sure, we loved listening to Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida” and Rihanna’s “Disturbia,” but there were a lot of great albums that didn’t get any radio airtime or Grammy nominations. Below, some of my favorite albums that were released this year. Keep reading »
Everywhere I turn, there’s a new set of twins, with four big boobs, two heightened libidos, and a camera. 2008 was all about two things: bisexuality and twins. Tila Tequila made a name for herself as a bisexual woman looking for love, while Lindsay Lohan came out and met the Ronson of her dreams. And everyone had twins this year — Brangelina, J. Lo, Nancy Grace, the list goes on. But in 2009, being bisexual and having twins isn’t going to get headlines — to be a STAR, you’ll need to be BOTH. Hugh Hefner just added two new Playmates to his mansion — twins Kristina and Karissa Shannon. This scenario makes my brain and my tummy hurt, because I can’t help but wonder if they get it on with Hef TOGETHER. Likewise, the new season of “A Shot At Love” is actually a “Double Shot” and features the “Ikki” twins, Rikki and Vikki, who are trying to find a perfect match amongst a pool of sexy beefcakes and hot lesbians. Meanwhile, at New York club The Box, the hottest featured act is the Porcelain TwinZ, who put on a fetish-burlesque show. What’s next? Mary-Kate and Ashley doing porn? “Sweet Valley High” erotica?

In about two weeks, I’ll go home to Ohio for Christmas. In addition to the usual traditions — stockings on the mantel, Christmas Eve dinner with all my cousins, monkey bread for breakfast on Christmas morning — my sisters, cousins, and I will watch National Lampoon’s “Christmas Vacation” with my grandmother, just as we do every year. It’s a strange tradition dating back at least 10 years, and it’s one of my favorites.
In the comments, tell us about your favorite holiday tradition! Keep reading »
According to a new study, a third of all women “view an inadequate Christmas gift as a relationship deal-breaker.” Women sited cooking utensils, cleaning products, fake jewelry, and, mysteriously, “a tape dispenser” as bad gift choices. Not surprisingly, lame gifts followed by more disappointments (reservations at the wrong restaurant, perhaps?) led to more breakups, the survey found. Interestingly, smart women are particularly hard to please: “highly educated women — especially those in the legal field — are particularly demanding.” Keep reading »
