Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
You thought you loved Easter, right? But your fanatacism is probably nothing compared to that of the participants of the annual New York City Easter Parade. Each year, the most spirited come together to show off their Easter bonnets and fascinators in a bunnies out parade extravaganza. Hop on through a few of our favorite wackadoodle Easter looks…
“A wise friend once told me, ‘Don’t wear what fashion designers tell you to wear. Wear what they wear.’ His point being that most designers, no matter what they throw onto the runway, favor simple, flattering pieces for themselves. Anyone who has never met me can tell you that fashion has always been very very very very very very very important to me. For example, I once told my cousin that my dream would be ‘if the whole store Express was my closet!’ How prescient, because now, of course, I wear nothing but Express. It can’t be said enough. Don’t concern yourself with fashion; stick to simple pieces that flatter your body type … By 19, I had found my look. Oversize T-shirts, bike shorts, and wrestling shoes. To prevent the silhouette from being too baggy, I would cinch it at the waist with my fanny pack. I was pretty sure I would wear this look forever. The shirts allowed me express myself with cool sayings like ‘There’s No Crying in Baseball’ and ‘Universität Heidelberg,’ the bike shorts showed off my muscular legs, and the fanny pack held all my trolley tokens. I was nailing it on a daily basis. Find something like this for yourself as soon as possible.”

A high school boy in Tampa Bay, Florida, was asked to leave school after he wore high heels to class. No, it wasn’t because other students made fun of him (which yes, they did). It was because the school had a problem with it. As one of the student’s friends explained, “He likes the way they make him feel. They make him feel more confident, and he just likes to wear them.” But, she continued, “The first time he felt shame was when he was called out of school.” School principal Bob Heilmann said he made the decision to have the boy remove his shoes because he was afraid the student would be bullied. “As a principal of a high school, I have to take the paternal side and make sure he’s going to be okay,” he said. “Anytime anyone goes out from, quote, ‘the norm’ or anytime anyone wants to make a statement, you have to be willing to take what comes with it.” What do you think? Should boys be allowed to wear heels to school? [Fox Tampa Bay] Keep reading »
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You might think you’ve seen it all, until this week plops down and starts laying all sorts of surprises on you, making you understand that there still is so much to be learned about yourslf and the world around you. Forget resisting either, as putting up a fight won’t benefit you; now is the time when knowing less will mean getting so much more.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Let actions speak louder than words with your boo this week, because if let his inarticulate way of communicating be your measure of where your relationship is, you would need a compass to sort it out. Realize communication won’t be his strong point now and instead, let him show you, as there will be no words to describe his poetry in motion.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Insanity finds you no matter where you are and that is just a fact of your life. So, don’t get comfortable, thinking life as you know it will continue as is, as a change of events is coming your way, bringing with it intensity in bulk form. This could be a sign of relief or a pain in your butt. Either way, don’t fret, as there is a way to land on top, just not without sweating it out a bit more.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You can’t always get what you want, but as long as you have some of it, what’s the problem? This week, beauty, attraction and sweet times are in store. However, a mental disconnect can be attached to all that is lovely too. Yes, it could just be a phase — but perhaps not. Whatever, it’s not like you have so many long-term arrangements. So, for now, ride this one out for what it is.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
For all that you love about that certain someone, there is all that you hate about him too. On one hand, he can be so loving and in tune with your needs. On the other hand, it’s like he is on a timer that shuts off repeatedly. So, what to do? Spill your guts. However, if you can’t follow it up with a solution, know just blowing out an angry diatribe will be in vain.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Be careful of the things you reveal now, even if they are true. As it goes, there is a time for everything and right now isn’t the best time to drop big bombs on anyone. Not to say you have to hide how you feel, but pace yourself. Strategy will come in handy when it comes to dealing with touchy emotions and a volatile personality.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Money is never a fun topic of discussion, but when it comes to love, you have to know how to set financial matter straight. So, time to get cracking on a proper working system of checks and balances and owning up to real responsibilities, as this could be one of those turning point weeks that’ll step up your relationship to a new and improved level.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Not everything is about winning and losing; sometimes it’s just about understanding and giving each other space when needed. After all, not all your honey’s woes have to do with you and you wouldn’t want them to either. So, hold back on your bullying tendency to get to the bottom of things, — now is the time to play on the same team.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Get ready with that extra bottle of vino, as this week, silly mishaps and slow progress are in store. Yes, mistakes and clumsy personalities will be crossing your path and might mess up your stride. However, spare some sympathy, as these wobbles won’t be yours but another’s — if you can just grin and bear it, well, then life will be a lot simpler at the end of this trying week.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You never know what can happen with that certain someone unless you start the dialogue and ask those pressing questions that have been burning a hole in your brain for far too long. As it goes, your hopes and wishes are on the brink of happening, but you need to be the one to turn the page and let the story unfold.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
The way someone wields their power will say all you need to know about them — and this could even mean yourself. Yes, as it stands, a slew of crazy events will occur, leading to you having to make crucial decisions. Of course, time is limited and not all info may be available, leaving you in a precarious position and showing you who really is with you.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
The truth can be flexible, depending on who you talk to — so don’t place all your eggs in one basket this week, no matter how much faith you want to put into that certain someone. As it goes, you’ll have to rein in your idealism now, as it may get the best of you. Not to say you can’t eventually trust that other person, but for now, realize you should still be in the assessment phase.
I love Lady Gaga and “Born This Way” as much as the next girl, but this preview of “Glee“‘s “Born This Way” episode just reminds me of an after-school special. (Except for the part when Mr. Shue calls Gaga “the queen of self-love,” which just made me think about masturbating.)
Check out another clip from “Glee” after the jump: Keep reading »
“As everyone’s planning their night at the club … I’m wondering when Gold’s [Gym] closes …[I have] egg whites in the morning and chicken and salads … And if you do drink, it’s gotta be clear liquors. [Margaritas] are, like, a million calories.”
– Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi on her new fitness regime. I mean, good for her. But I will certainly miss watching her get sloppy. I’m sure she’ll be just as entertaining sober. And what about pickles? I hope she still eats! [People] Keep reading »
