Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Here at The Frisky, we’re pretty big Etsy fans. We have a soft spot for all those darling creations and a major appreciation for the type of crafty folks out there who actually take the time to make goods by hand. But sometimes we’re cruisin’ through the site and suddenly come across these sort of random stand-outs that make us think, “Gee, really?” as in, one of these does not belong. Now there’s a storage unit for the more unfortunate items that show up, like these adorable tampon cozies (above). At Regretsy, you’ll find an eerie Michael Jackson baseball, throw pillows that look like condom wrappers, a Lil’ Kim baby gown, and crocheted toilet paper (man those knitters are creative!). Last week, the site refused to link to the real Etsy stores behind the craft fails, but they kind of blew up over the weekend and maybe that’s the reason why you can now click through to purchase the dubious goods. Think of it as your one-stop shop for gag gifts, or maybe just your new favorite four o’clock slack-off site. [Regretsy] Keep reading »

It’s bold. It’s colorful. It makes me want to throw my entire wardrobe out the window and start from scratch! Annalena stood out on the walkways of Venice with a Marni day coat that is, in one word, glorious. Where does one go in such aesthetically pleasing attire? Why, in this case, she was on her way to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, natch. Keep reading »
Keep it cool when it comes to impressing that cute new someone this week. There is no reason you have to work at it. Besides, if you start the ball rolling now, you inevitably will go into your manic mode and wind up doing everything. Stop, think and stop. If you want to change those failed relationship patterns of your past, this is where it all starts. Let him come to you.
Trying to stay polite in your speech is sweet and all, but you know you are currently feeling some rage, so let it out. Situations and people you’ve been making excuses for no longer deserve them. Get real with yourself; then get real with them. No one gets any pleasure from getting the short end of the stick, so turn it around and get the best.
Pay attention to your instincts. They’ll be in turbo alert mode for the next few weeks, saving you from tremendous aggravation. Promises made, confessions spilt, plans set — whatever the case, you’ll know if there is real sincerity and truth behind it all with the precision of a surgeon. What you do with it though, you’ll have to wait and see.
Get the coordinated outfits going and the mega watt smiles beaming, because it’s time to show off as an IT couple. Whatever the case, whether it’s a job function or a family thing, playing into a perception of how others want to see you will benefit you both financially down the line. If anything, think of it as a role-playing exercise.
Beware of s**t trickling down into your home life. Chances are big for stress to hit at the office and for you or your honey to be the other’s whipping post as a result. If this winds up being you, call it out when he misbehaves and ride the guilt out long and strong. If it is you, well, be ready with a sob story and to turn the situation around at a moment’s notice if he calls you on it.
Routines are fine if you are a gerbil; otherwise, time to break out of your comfort zone and realize there are more ways to get off than just one. If you don’t change this way about you now, you might wind up very sad and lonely, as the boredom and anxiety brewing in your bedroom may reach its tipping point soon.
Who cares who is going to judge you, if it means getting off? Feel free to spill your secrets and show that you are more than just a pretty face. The dirtier the fantasies, the more delicious your rewards — as it seems that someone who can properly fulfill all your demented little dreams is merely just a phone call away, if you want it that is.
You are going to have to put your ego aside and play fair. Dealing with your baby will seem a little harder, as you can expect he’ll be speaking up for himself a little more these days — but seems to be his bravado will turn you on just enough to dull the pain from having to lower yourself to his demands.
You’re superficial and you know it. Own it, love it and embrace it. Don’t make excuses for yourself because the moment that you do, that is when things will start to backfire on you. Be proud of all sides of who you are. Because if the person you are hanging with is right, they will see you as honest, not shallow.
Let the words fly out of your mouth, because if you run out of pure emotions, your diatribes will be way more effective and poignant than if you try to edit yourself and plan what you’re going to say in advance. Besides, by now, you should know that everything you do is way better if you are flying by the seat of your pants.
Consider yourself screwed. Seems the wild game of cat and mouse you’ve been playing had too many players involved – it’s all about to catch up with you. Best to own up to the naughtiness immediately and take it from there. Truth will be the only thing to set you free, but even so, it might only grant you a pardon. Whatever the case, consider this karma doing its thing.
As long as you make whatever you want sound pretty, people will do as you say. And lucky you, influences will cause you to have poetry pouring from your mouth, so use it for good and share all those feelings, thoughts, plans and desires bottled inside that sweet little head of yours. The music coming from your mouth with be irresistible.

I can’t believe I have somehow gotten a guy to cook me dinner in my own home, I thought, smiling at Mr. C as he dodged about awkwardly in my petite cuisine looking for knives, having insisted on coming to chez moi to let me relax while he made a meal.
When we sat down to eat, I started to giggle. This had to be not only the most clichéd moment I’ve experienced in Paris, but also the most clichéd moment you’d find in most movies. There I was, sitting down to my table with a view of the Seine, having a handsome French man politely correct my français as he served me a meal, accompanied by an expensive bottle of St. Emillion, and Frank Sinatra crooning in the background.
“What’s so funny?” Mr. C asked, topping off my glass.

This mug is so cool/creepy, that I just remembered I had a nightmare about it last night. Seriously. I dreamed that I was being attacked and I fought back by throwing my teeth mug at the assailant. Anyway, would you drink your beverage of choice out of this bad boy? [$24, MollaSpace.com via Better Living Through Design] Keep reading »
