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 »
We were slightly baffled by Drew Barrymore‘s most recent dye job, but it didn’t last long. Earlier this week, Drew appeared on “Today” and her blond hair no longer had black ends. She had chopped them off. Now she has the same ‘do as before, only slightly shorter. And she’s been wearing it slicked back. Keep reading »
Yesterday, I came across a wedding story in the Washington Post that caught my eye: “In the End It’s a Fairy Tale.” Who doesn’t like a happy ending? It was the wedding story of interior designer Kerilyn Fox, 34, and chef Peter Russo, 38. The bride describes their path to the altar as “part fairy tale, part ‘Jerry Springer’ episode.” They were together; they broke up. He proposed; she turned him down. She moved in with another man; finally, she left the other man for Russo. Fox says they were “meant to be,” adding, “In the end it’s a fairy tale. I’m marrying the man of my dreams.” The story is accompanied by a photo slide show, and while they seem like a happy, well-matched couple, I couldn’t help but notice Russo looks to be morbidly obese. That got me wondering: Would you marry the man of your dreams … if he was obese? Put your thoughts in the comments.
NOTE: The Washington Post requested that we take down the photo. So we did. Keep reading »
“If you’re any kind of a human, you know the title is utterly ludicrous. But I like the idea of it, too. I do. I’m feeling that I must earn this. I need to go out and become much better at pole dancing or something.”

Why does it seem like the older I get the more hectic and crazy my life becomes? Back in college, things were so simple. Wake up early-ish, go to class, come back to the dorm, and have a few bongs and burritos with friends to unwind. On the days I went to work, I never felt spent because I didn’t really have that much responsibility. And when I returned back to my dorm … yep … more bongs and burritos. Oh, how things have changed. I don’t know about you, but by the end of a long work day, I am so drained and stressed, I’m looking for just about any excuse I can think of to kick off my high heels. (OK, I don’t usually wear high heels but go with me here.) That usually includes some version of going out with my friends, gorging on some good food, and, most importantly, throwing back copious glasses of red wine. I must admit my routine of nightly hedonism is starting to take its toll, both on my beauty sleep and my wallet. Let’s face it; I just don’t bounce back from a night of drinking the way I did when I was 21. Maybe it’s time to go green in the stress relief department. Maybe it’s time for me to become a “Stiletto Stoner,” only without the stilettos. Keep reading »
