Let’s face it: keeping up with pop culture is difficult. With more than 1000 channels worth of TV shows, not to mention a new flood of movies and music every week, it’s practically a full-time job to keep up with everything.

Man, I love it when Ellen DeGeneres

Working from home isn’t glamorous! Just let me tell you about my typical work day to explain. I climb out of my loft bed and leave on exactly what I slept in.

It’s comfy most of the time, but, occasionally, I get a pain in my tailbone from having too much pressure on it for hours at a time. Not to mention, my cat sheds about a pound of hair a day, so I’ve taken to draping my chaise in a sheet. Obviously, this isn’t the ideal work-from-home setup. So I allowed myself to daydream about how I would decorate my dream work space. Maybe this will inspire me to actually do it. And don’t forget to tell us: How would you build your perfect work space?
Anti-abortion activists will bring their “Voices from the Womb” project to Capital Hill on October 13 when they perform ultrasounds on expectant mothers to “introduce” congressional employees to fetuses at 12 weeks and 18 weeks. Their hope is that politicians will “hear the beating heart” and “clearly see their fingers and toes,” which will make all “pro-choice politics and arguments melt away,” according to the group’s leader, Brandi Swindell. Congress and the public are all invited to see the public ultrasounds, after which the project will begin touring at schools, churches and public hearings around the country. Keep reading »
