Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Last night, instead of watching “Desperate Housewives” and “Brothers & Sisters,” I opted for slightly more intellectual but no less drama-filled fare and watched Masterpiece Classic on PBS, hosted by Laura Linney. This week, it was part one of “Tess of the d’Urbervilles,” based on the novel by Thomas Hardy. I was enthralled, and I can’t wait for the conclusion next Sunday at 9pm. Keep reading »
First lady Laura Bush, who, according to the Associated Press, is “among the most reserved and enigmatic public figures of recent times” just got a book deal! Bush will, with the help of a collaborator, “tell the stories of the extraordinary events and people I’ve met in my life, particularly during my years in the White House.” Hmmm…. Does this mean she’s not going to talk about the car accident she was in as a teenager or any of the really juicy stuff Curtis Sittenfield wrote about in American Wife, her novel inspired by Bush?

The holiday season is filled with so many awkward family moments. Like, “Oh, pajamas. They’re, um… pink!” Or, “It’s a good thing Grandpa switched his prostate meds.” It can be scary stuff people, but I didn’t want to freak you out before you got cornered by a week’s worth of bonding time. Now that we’ve all officially survived the triumvirate of American high holy days, we can finally breathe a sigh of relief and laugh at this vintage mother/daughter moment. It left me with a not so fresh feeling — my lunch making its way back up. Guaranteed, nobody’s vagina stinks as much as this conversation.
An Australian woman appeared in court today on a murder charge after allegedly setting fire to her husband’s genitals because she believed he was having an affair. Prosecutors said that Rajini Narayan, 44, told neighbors she had only wanted to burn her husband’s penis “so it belongs to me and no one else.” Talk about a crime of passion! You might think that crimes associated with male genitalia are rare, but in fact, they’re quite common. After the jump, six penis-related crimes from the last year. Keep reading »
Movie studios know we will eat up pure sap around Valentine’s Day. As cheesy as it’s probably going to be, I can’t wait for “He’s Just Not That Into You,” which comes out a month from tomorrow. I laughed out loud watching this new trailer, mostly because there are some valid points. Like Drew Barrymore’s character says, “I had this guy leave me a voicemail at work, so I called him at home. And then he emailed to my BlackBerry, and so I texted to his cell. And now you just have to go around checking all these different portals just to be rejected by seven different technologies. It’s exhausting!” Keep reading »
It seems Judy McGuire’s fantastic piece, “Girl Talk: How To Avoid Dating An Abusive Freak,” was eeirily and unfortunately timely. The New York Times reports that due to a rise in teen domestic violence, many states are instituting programs designed to educate young people about the signs of abuse and the dangers those in abusive relationships face.
