Do You Dress Provocatively At Work?

Anyone who’s watched a few episodes of “What Not To Wear” knows our attire affects the way we feel about ourselves, as well as how others view us. So it shouldn’t be any surprise that a recent survey by The Ragtrader found that what we wear to work can really affect our success rate. “This relates to both accomplishing more during 9-5 and even climbing the career ladder quicker too,” a survey author said. The survey polled 3,000 workers and found that 78 percent of women believe the way they dress affects their day at work and more than half believe dressing up affects their performance and success at work. How do these women dress for success? Keep reading »

    CDC Releases Latest STD Statistics

    Yikes — 19 million STD infections occur each year according to the Center for Disease Control’s NEW report this week. The numbers from 2007 are in and the stats are a total bummer. Gonorrhea and chlamydia, the most common STDs, recorded the largest number of known cases to date, 1.5 million according to the most recent assessment. However, the government agency thinks that’s a low estimate, and suspect that there are actually twice as many people who are carrying the infections. Agh! Unfortunately, the infections often go undiagnosed because they can be asymptomatic. While gonorrhea and chlamydia frequently come together in one big STD package, they are both cured with antibiotics. However, if someone isn’t a responsible sexy time partner and doesn’t get tested regularly, the diseases can wreak havoc and even do things jeopardize your ability to get pregnant. Since young women, age 15-34, are in the highest risk categories, it’s essential that we take care of our business! Go visit the gyno and let them smear your pap, why dontcha?! [CDC] Keep reading »

    Our First “American Idol” Crush Of Season 8

    Amelia and I both watched all four hours of “American Idol” Tuesday and Wednesday. It was a lot to handle, especially because they show so many terrible people and the judges are cruel to them, but we had to see whether there are any crush-worthy contestants. While he doesn’t compare to Josiah Leming from last season, Anoop Desai, a 21-year-old grad student from Chapel Hill, NC, is kind of charming in a geeky way. However, word on the street is that he doesn’t make into the top 50. We’ll be sussing out the cute-Idol situation again once the contestants get narrowed down next week. Keep reading »

    10 Ways To Be Unproductive In The New Year

    It’s already two weeks into the New Year, and people are still being all motivated and productive and infuriatingly resolved. One friend is detoxing with her boyfriend, while another is spending five hours a week volunteering for Unicef. Another is playing the piano at his local nursing home, and yet another has upped her hours at work, in an attempt to snag a promotion. And then there’s your co-worker, who has stopped using credit cards, and can therefore no longer accompany you to Banana Republic after work. How insufferable! At a time when everyone is toiling and laboring and spending 40 minutes a day on the elliptical machine, isn’t it time you made a promise to yourself to be…unproductive? More after the jump… Keep reading »

    We Salute “The United States Of Tara”

    OMG bitches! Sometimes life throws you a bone…or in this case, a girl boner! Diablo Cody, the former stripper/screenwriter behind “Juno”, is giving her goodies away. The pilot episode of the new TV show she’s been working on since her Oscar win, “The United States of Tara,” is set to premiere on Showtime on Sunday. But If you go to Showtime’s website, you can wtach the entire first episode now! I did, and afterwards I was so satisfied, I needed a smoke. The show is totally original and somehow manages to make multiple personality disorder not a cheesy soap opera premise or a pathetic cry for help. Maybe it’s because Ms. Cody sees her character as a metaphor for the modern woman who is trying to fill so many roles. “The United States Of Tara” is backed by a seriously talented cast. Thanks to the amazingly hilarious character actress Toni Collette (“200 Cigarettes,” “Velvet Goldmine,” “Muriel’s Wedding,” “Little Miss Sunshine”) and John Corbett (Aidan on “Sex and the City”), I’m hooked.

    Gretchen Rossi Gets Drunk And Acts Like A “Real Housewives” Hussy!

    Last night’s episode of “The Real Housewives Of Orange County” was epic. Gretchen Rossi, the new bitch on the block (she’s the one with the Kenny Rogers lookalike for a fiance), got wasted, just wasted, at a dinner party and totally hit on Tamra’s son Ryan. Watching people get this trashed makes me kind of uncomfortable, in that I know I have been this drunk at points in my life and have probably been just as embarrassing to be around (though I have never, ever hit on anyone underage, I swear). Anyway, the episode ended with Gretchen and Ryan in the bathroom, potentially, maybe, about to get it on. Can’t wait for next week! Keep reading »

    Do Skinny Women Really Have More Sex?

    Listen, I don’t know where they get this “research” or who they’re asking, but according to a new study, women who are a size four have sex more often than size eight women. Now, I think if they continued to do the math they’d find size 16’s like me do it even more than both of them combined, because we’ve got more cushion for the pushin’! But you know, I’m really getting carried away because I’m sick of fat chicks getting accused of being unsexy or disinterested in doin’ it. Skinny or chubby, whatever, we’ve all got needs! In general, size-based statistics, like this one, seem like something a fitness “guru” would invent to get clients…oh wait, the study was conducted by a “weight loss specialist.” Ugh, girl-on-girl crime strikes again! Well, no matter how much you’re getting frisky, we all could always use some extra sexercise. That’s the only kind of personal trainer I’m going to work out for! [That’s Fit] Keep reading »
