Text Message Abbreviations Cropping Up On Birth Certificates

Text messaging will most assuredly lead to the downfall of our society. What with all the ghastly abbreviations and acronyms, we might as well quit worrying about teaching the kids how to spell. There really won’t be a point, because even their names are being misspelled, perhaps based on the way someone might type it in a quick message: Cam’ron, Flicity, etc. Some people have taken that middle-school need to spell their names differently a little too far (and they’re making their children suffer).

Buffy Likes Big Butts

Sarah Michelle Geller is back — and she’s got herself some too! The former Buffy star is busting out with three new movies this year, including Southland Tales, in which she plays a porn star. As shooting wrapped and Sarah Michelle was leaving the set, she just had to snatch one x-rated prop to take home with her. What was her must-have memento? Geller grabbed a fake porn DVD jacket starring her character, that had been created for the film. Since Sarah Michelle doesn’t do nudie scenes or exposure of any kind, the filmmakers had her face Photoshopped onto the DVD wrapping. “They let me pick the body of the girl they put my head on: I picked one with a curvy body and butt,” Sarah Michelle said. We’re kind of surprised the producers didn’t just hire Kim Kardashian. [Star Pulse] Keep reading »

More Bed-Buying Tips

If you’re in the market for a new bed and weren’t drawn to this one, you might want to consider buying a soft bed, rather than a firm one. For people with low back pain, sleeping on a hard mattress may actually make the pain worse, according to a new report published in Spine. Sleeping on a softer bed allows the body to stay in a neutral position, reducing stress on the spine. It can also increase your total sleep time. (Actually, I already knew this because Jamelle, a manager at Sleepy’s, told me this last month when I bought my new bed. He must have the inside scoop on all things bed-related.) Keep reading »

Who Wants Their Wedding Theme To Be “Tacky”?

Whoa. I’ve heard of theme parties, but never theme weddings. Our girl Erin, who’s an Editor over at Shine, posted about the increasing popularity of theme weddings and equated the trend with the prevalence of bad tattoos. But one particular link within her story caught our eye: WedThemes.com. The site has literally hundreds of tickety-tackety wedding theme ideas, from “your favorite creatures such as dolphins, doves, butterflies and other insects, birds, and fish”, to “sorcery and enchantment await your guests when they witness the wedding magic of your wizard’s wedding.” So that got me thinking about what my dream theme wedding would be, were I the type of person who would invest time and money into such a thing. Catherine said, “I would totally do a ’30s or ’40s theme wedding — not a flapper wedding, like from the ’20s, but something very retro. Or, because I have Scottish-blood, maybe I would do a Scottish wedding and wear my family tartan as my wedding dress. Can I do that? I don’t think that white is really a good color for me.” As for me, I think I would do something extraordinarily over the top, like a Marie Antoinette-themed wedding, with powdered wigs and bustles and little mini cakes.
