Hi, I’m single. Like, what’s up with that? Word. Can I buy you a vodka tonic, super fox?
Okay – let me interrupt for a second, and preempt our regularly scheduled programming to get some things off my hairy, muscular, barrel chest. I’m guessing you heard that the guy with the lizard neck lost the presidential election to the guy with the lady fingers, right? So…
I normally make a conscious choice to reject the idea of identity politics, which is to say, to gravitate towards politicians who are just like me, either ideologically, or, on a more base level, culturally. I am instantly distrustful of politicians who tell me they drink beer just like me, or listen to the music I listen to, or who suggest that I vote for them because their biological fortunes confer an expertise others cannot possibly claim. These notions are nothing more than cheap, aspirational lies. Keep reading »
Our friends over at YourTango have an interesting new webisode that’s part of their “Single in France” series by Liz Tuccillo: “‘Date’ Doesn’t Translate.” What’s it like to date in France? “We don’t have dates,” the French women explain to the silly American woman. Mon Dieu! Instead, one reveals, when men and women get together, “It’s like an open window.” Apparently, les femmes don’t need rules or The Rules because they’re more spontaneous than us. Sounds revolutionary, really. Watch the video to find out what the crazy French ladies say about dating and sex. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
The National Enquirer, which famously broke the John Edwards cheating scandal, claims that Cindy McCain has been cheating on John McCain. The magazine says that Cindy has been canoodling with a “washed-up 80s rock star” — the picture they’ve produced as evidence looks pretty darn grainy to us, but the woman in the photo does have Cindy’s signature platinum hair. But without getting a look at her eye makeup, I’m not willing to say if it’s her or not. The McCain spokespeople have declined to comment. In any case, if it is true, maybe she’s decided to run around John before he runs around on her — after all, their relationship started with HER as the other woman. But still…kind of mean to kick a man while he’s down! [National Enquirer] Keep reading »
Unless you’re living in a cave somewhere in, I don’t know, rural Alaska, far, far from civilization, you’ve probably noticed that our economy is in the crapper. And despite last week’s presidential election of Barack Obama and his message of change and hope, it will take some time before things stabilize and we’re back on track. In the meantime, many of us are choosing to embrace our inner recessionistas, shunning the big-budget shopping sprees and pricey meals out that we may have enjoyed in the past in favor of clothing swaps and cozy dinner parties in. But quaint as all that sounds, it isn’t always easy to go from spendista to recessionista, to save for a rainy day instead of splurging on a cute, new pair of Wellies the second we spot anything less than clear blue skies. After the jump, a few tips to try in the next 30 days to help you find your own inner recessionista and jump start a new lifestyle of living large, but spending small. Keep reading »
Welcome to the Twilight book club! WARNING: Do not read the following post if you would not like to know what happens in the first half of the book.
We’ll be discussing the events through chapter 12, when Edward takes Bella into the forest. Out of respect for other readers DO NOT GIVE AWAY ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS AFTER THAT, even if you’ve already read the entire novel.
Amelia, Annika, Emily, and I got the discussion going this morning over IM, but we want you to keep it going in the comments. I think we’ve all come to one conclusion: This book totally turns us on, even though there isn’t any sex. Keep reading »
Personally, I think these are really rad. Made by Etsy retailer Margaux Lange, these earrings, necklaces, and rings are made from disembodied Barbie parts. Edgy? Subversive? Icky? Or all of the above? [$110-$185, Etsy] Keep reading »
