Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Some of our mothers appreciate the finer things in life, while others appreciate the more intangible. Some bestowed us with home-cooked dinners, while others bestowed us with the healing light of the Divine. If your mother can maneuver herself into full lotus pose in the blink of an eye, if she can name a semi-precious gem stone faster than a speeding bullet, if the first thing she does after you go through a breakup is appear at your doorstep with a bundle of sage, then your mom is a Mother Goddess. That’s a fancy way of saying she’s one New Agey woman. Click through to see some spiritual Mother’s Day gifts for the woman who fulfills the mother archetype in your life.
A quick word to the wise: if you are planning to get a tattoo to commemorate the joining of Prince William and Kate Middleton in holy matrimony, I would suggest making sure that your tattoo artist has a calendar handy. Luckily, this chap isn’t too upset that his tat heralds the 28th of April as the big day when it was actually the 29th. “‘It’s quirky. It’ll be the only one in the country with that date,” he said.

It took Rose Pallard a long time to commit to her boyfriend, Forrest Lunsway. Thirty years, in fact. The two had been together that long when 90-year-old Rose finally agreed to marry Forrest—on his 100th birthday. The two tied the knot in Southern California on March 19 in a joint wedding and centenial birthday party. And while they might be the oldest newlyweds in the world, man, do they still have some moves. After all, Forrest did get down on one knee and ask for Rose’s hand in marriage without any issues. Rose’s advice for making romance last? “Be forgiving and patient and say ‘I love you’ every once in a while,” she explained.

We were always of the mindset that face tattoos were strictly the realm of crust punks, Mike Tyson and the criminally insane.

Would you rock a lacey-facey? [$30, Supermarket HQ] Keep reading »
I know what I’m watching this evening. This week’s episode of National Geographic’s “Taboo” features Stanley Thorton, an adult baby. The 29-year-old sleeps in a crib he built himself, plays with Legos, and is spoon and bottle-fed by Sandra Diaz, his “caretaker.” No, they are not lovers. And yes, in case you were wondering, he wears diapers. In public, Stanley behaves and dresses as an adult man, but at home, it’s all baby, all the time. This is not a sexual fetish for Stanley, it’s about recapturing the love and care of early childhood and “relaxing” after a long day. More please. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
