The Plight Of The NYC Single Woman

Some people come to New York City for work. Some people come to New York City for school. Some people are born in New York City and never end up leaving. But whatever your reason for being here, you probably ended up staying, in part, for one reason: options. On any given night there are thousands of different activities you could be doing and hundreds of them are free. If you don’t like your apartment, you can find a dozen illegal sublets on Craigslist in two hours. Want to gawk at a celebrity drinking her morning latte? Craving pizza handmade by an Italian grandpa who speaks no English? Need pot delivered to your apartment ASAP? Check, check and check. Hell, you’ll even find two three four different Starbucks in a three-block radius.

But maybe the BIg Apple has too many options. NYC single woman Jennifer Doll argues in The Village Voice — the city’s indie newspaper — this week that when it comes to settling down and getting married, no one in the dating game will make a decision because there are too many other options to choose from.

Woman Takes A Poop Break


This hungry woman can’t wait until the end of this seminar to take a taste of her delicious dookie, so she just indulges in a little lick. Is she really eating poop or is she hiding snacks down her pants? There was a boy in my kindergarten class who used to pick his warts and suck the blood. Until now, that was the grossest thing I’d ever encountered. My brain is not computing this video, so I collected some responses from fellow Friskians. Check them out after the jump. Oh, and add yours in the comments. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

The 28-Day Meditation Challenge: Learning To Realize When Things Just Aren’t That Big A Deal

For the month of February, Kate is taking part in Sharon Salzberg’s 28-Day Meditation Challenge. Last week, Kate shared her feelings on starting the program. Here’s week two.

On Sunday, before the Super Bowl, I found myself in the grocery store, waiting on an epic line to buy a carton of eggs I’d forgotten to get when I was there earlier in the day. I opened my wallet and, of course, it was empty—not a single dollar in there. I took out my credit card. “Fifteen dollar minimum,” the cashier said.

As I parsed what to do, I heard the guy behind me start to huff. Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: The Body Deli Dark Chocolate Truffle Body Scrub

I love eating chocolate. I love smelling chocolate. And now, after using The Body Deli’s dark chocolate truffle body scrub, I love bathing in it, too. The dark chocolate truffle body scrub (exclusively available in Feb.), sloughs off skin just as vigorously as their pumpkin body scrub. The African shea, organic cocoa and organic virgin coconut butter leaves softer parts of my body, like my belly and my butt, feeling touchable and smooth. But I really love how my dry and scaly feet feel almost instantly prettier! My mother thought the dark chocolate smell was too pungently like “food,” but that wasn’t a problem for me. Keep reading »

Mark Wahlberg’s Daughter Is Dating At Age 7

“She gave a boy in her class my cellphone number. He calls me and says, ‘Hey, Mr. Wahlberg, I’m taking your daughter to the movies.’ I’m like, what? Seven years old! I say at least seven more years. He’s seven too and I’m like, ‘Okay, let me talk to your father.’ So me and the father talk. We take them to the movies. They don’t say a word to each other.”

Mark Wahlberg tells Jay Leno about how his daughter, Ella Ray, is starting to get interested in boys. I want to note that it takes one ballsy second-grader to ask Marky Mark if he can take out his daughter. Also, Mark revealed that he cried at “Toy Story 3″ and “Tangled.” Awww.
