Survey Says You’ll Bicker With Your S.O. 2,455 Times This Year!

Snapped at your boyfriend because he forgot to take out the trash? Argued over whether to watch “American Idol” or the Bulls game? You’re not alone — couples average 2,455 of those little spats each year. That’s according to a survey of 3,000 people conducted by home insurance company Esure, which found that couples bicker up to seven times per day about everything from household chores to how to raise the kids. The UK’s Daily Mail didn’t get into the specifics of who those 3,000 people were, but regardless, I found the results pretty surprising. I lived with my ex for four-and-a-half of the almost five years we were together and while we certainly bickered, I really don’t think we came close to averaging seven spats a day. I mean, maybe on days when we were profoundly annoyed with each other, but that wasn’t often enough to greatly skew our average. Maybe the study or participants view “bickering” as any difference in opinion or position whatsoever? What do you think? Does this survey accurately reflect how much you and current or previous significant others bickered? [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »

Woody Allen Wants Proof Actresses Haven’t “Gained 200 Pounds” Before Casting Them

“Casting is so awkward. I’m too shy to meet [actresses]. I have the women come in and I don’t let them sit down. I make up some questions, but I couldn’t care less about chatting. I only see them to make sure that they haven’t gained 200 pounds or had five face jobs. I want to see that the woman I saw on the DVD is still intact.”

Woody Allen talks to W magazine about his new flick, “Midnight in Paris,” which is screening at the Cannes Film Festival. Wow, he does such a bad job of making himself likable. Really, he meets with actresses just to make sure they’re still hot? Guess he liked what he saw with Rachel McAdams. [PopWrap] Keep reading »

Sarah Palin Says She Has “That Fire In My Belly.” Will She Or Won’t She Run For President in 2012?

Last night, Sarah Palin talked to Greta van Susteren over at Fox News about whether she would be throwing her hat in the ring for president in 2012. “It’s a matter for me of some kind of practical, pragmatic decisions that have to be made,” Sarah explained. “One is, with a large family understanding the huge amount of scrutiny and the sacrifices that have to be made on my children’s part in order to see their mama run for president. But yeah, the fire in the belly—it’s there.” [Politico]

I’m tempted to make the obvious joke: “No Sarah, that’s just indigestion.” But instead, after the jump, I’d like to take a look back at Sarah’s thoroughly confusing quotes about this issue over the past year. Let’s just say that she’s hinted and then recanted before. Keep reading »

Things That Will Make You Feel Old

If you are over the age of 18, no matter what your actual numerical age is, something will happen to make you feel old. For me, it’s the fact that when interns fill out their paperwork, I see that they were born in 1992. That’s crazy, see, because I was 12 in 1992 and already had a full collection of colored jeans from the Limited Too. Feeling old isn’t a bad thing—just strange. So Buzzfeed’s collection of “40 Things That Will Make You Feel Old” is kind of blowing my mind. Above, the first entry. Some others to look forward to: the fact that all three of the Hanson brothers are married with kids, that the Macarena is 16-years-old, and that the first state quarter came out 11 years ago. Eek!

Not Buying It: Sugar Daddy Dating Site’s Shoddy Photoshop

The thing that cracks me up the most about these ads for Sugar Sugar, an online dating site that matches younger women with older, weathy men, is that these are so obviously stock images of young couples. The guys’ hair has just been badly photoshopped to look grey. These dudes, to quote one blogger, look “very (very) premature gray-blue … with the skin of a 26-year-old” — likely not representative of the actual sugar daddies the site has to offer.

Mind Of Man: What He’s Thinking During Sex (An Internal Monologue)

Oh yeah, I’m about to have sex. What time is it? Big hand is on “LAID,” little hand is on “ME.” This is going to be awesome. Breath: minty! Pits: spicy! Boxers: fresh! Give her the Han Solo smirk. Squint, seductively. Remember that the eyes are like the mouths of the pants. Tell her what she needs to know just by looking at her: I’m about to let the dawgs of freaky push it, pu-push it real good. Buckle up, lucky lady, you’ve got a first class ticket on the rocket of love. Keep reading »
