We’re officially too old to use those fun smelly markers at work. Do they even make those anymore? We lived for those things in elementary school. Now you can get a whiff of your childhood and still appear to be a respectable adult with this pack of Smencils. These gourmet scented pencils smell yummy and are environmentally friendly. Our “to do” list is going to smell amazing.
Alex Trebek is gangsta. The “Jeopardy” host—who’s been doing his gig for 27 years now, by the way—showed up at an event yesterday on crutches. Naturally, the press wanted to know what happened. The answer: “What is a thwarted robbery?” Apparently, Trebek woke up in the middle of the night and found a burglar rummaging through his stuff in his hotel room. He may be 70, but he wasn’t about to let the thief get away. So he chased her. Alek explained, “It happened at 2:30 a.m., chasing a burglar down the hallway of my San Francisco hotel when my Achilles tendon ruptured and I then fell on carpet, bruising the other leg in process.” He’ll be having surgery on Friday.
Now, the skeptic in me immediately thought, He probably fell down the stairs, and came up with a hero story that sounded way cooler. But this story has been confirmed. Keep reading »
When I was younger, I thought that dating a professional baseball player would be awesome. Free VIP seating at every game, the notoriety of being a celebrity wife, plus getting to look at a chiseled, athletic body every day? Sign me up! I thought. Well, life has taught me to be more of a realist. First of all, what are the chances I could actually come into contact with and successfully seduce a pro athlete? Second, what about road games? I mean, would he ever be home? And then there are the groupies. I try not to be territorial or jealous (note: try) but those girls are ruthless!
So, I was thinking: How many more potential professions sound amazing, but have some major downsides? Check out these guy careers and the reasons that dating these gainfully employed men might be more difficult than you think. Keep reading »
Dear Ryan Gosling,
Oh Ryan, you’re so funny. You know, I know what you’re doing, right? Sure, you may be telling people that this new look is for a movie, something called “The Place Behind The Pines” that I will obviously see 10 times. But I know you’re really just trying to look less attractive so I won’t love you so much. Not gonna work, Ry! You may have bleached your hair, but you didn’t bleach my soul. Even that fake tear tattoo isn’t putting a dent in my devotion. It washes off! The hair will grow out! Someday we’re going to be old and gray and incontinent, Ryan; your fading looks and a restraining order won’t keep me away then, and they won’t keep me away now. You can’t get rid of me, darling Gos. But props for trying!
Yours 4 life,
Amelia Keep reading »
