Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Kate Winslet inspired young thespians when she recently went back to the children’s theater company where she got her start. She reminded them that anything is possible if she could be such a success after being passed over for roles because she was “too fat.” You tell ‘em, Kate! [Telegraph]
Big announcement! In the year 2031, I’ll have been editing The Frisky for 23 years. At that point, my eyes will be weary from staring at a computer screen for so long, and it will be time for me and my domestic partner Ryan Gosling to retire to our beachfront estate on the Riviera Maya in Mexico. I want to leave The Frisky in the hands of someone I trust, someone who I believe embodies the spirit of this site. After an exhaustive search, I have found that woman, I mean 5-year-old girl. Now, let’s hope she’s good with HTML. [via Dlisted] Keep reading »
“This part of my body [her chest] is very private to me … that’s a real private place. A place that I don’t have a good relationship with, let’s say. But at that moment of pulling her out, I just tore that [gown] off … There’s a room full of people that I don’t know. Nurses and doctors, and she and I just lay there. It was the best thing that’s every happened to me.”
– New mom, Christina Applegate, tells People that giving birth to her daughter Sadie had a profound effect on how she views her body. Applegate had a double mastectomy in 2008, after she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and tells the magazine she’s been very on guard about her body since. Such a beautiful quote and a lovely baby — mazel tov! [People] Keep reading »
Amelia was mocking me this morning for my love of mini-purses, but she’ll see where she’s wrong when I smack some catcalling oaf in the face with a perfectly-sized mini-purse and she can’t! Mini-purses, besides being adorable, are perfect for a woman who knows all she needs in life is her cell phone, lip gloss and enough money to get home. No more dragging your life’s possessions around over one arm and killing your neck and shoulder blades. Suck it, hobo bags — your days are numbered.
Often, mini-purses come with long straps and are called “cross-body bags,” although that sounds too much to me like Mom carrying her valuables in a passport holder across her body at Disney World because she’s afraid of getting pickpocketed outside of Space Mountain. Instead of mini-purses or “cross-bodies,” I prefer the French-ified description: sacs. They’re little sacs! Isn’t that cute? After the jump, check out nine mini-purses/cross-bodies/sacs perfect for catcaller-smacking — or just lip gloss-holding.
There’s an excessive amount of construction happening outside my apartment today (workin’ from home right now) and the jackhammering has gotten to the point where I was literally about to go outside and offer a blow job in exchange for some peace and quiet. But then I saw this photo and I was suddenly calm. I guess I won’t be prostituting myself after all. Phew. [Well That's Adorable] Keep reading »
Linkbait — (noun), an article written online for the sole purpose of trying to draw traffic.
You’ve heard of stay-at-home-moms — now it’s time to meet a “stay-at-home-girlfriend.” Writing on the Brooklyn-based blog Brokelyn, blogger Quiana Stokes described how she recently lost her job and is now a “stay-at-home-girlfriend” in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, playing house and having the roast ready for her boyfriend when he comes home. Feminist bloggers are abuzz with Quiana’s “stereotypically Stepfordish rules,” like picking up after her boyfriend when he gets dressed in the morning, cooking dinner every night, keeping up her hair and nails, and fixing his favorite cocktails when he comes home from a hard day’s work.
Now, I’m going to say something that might surprise you about this proto-Betty Draper: frankly, I don’t think the article is that offensive. Keep reading »
