The Monkees Touring This Summer

I loved The Monkees. No, I LOVED The Monkees. I wasn’t alive when the foursome—the American answer to The Beatles—ruled the television and music charts in the ’60s, but I was around when their eponymous television series aired on Nick at Nite in the ’80s. I watched every night and always had a philosophical debate about whether I had a bigger crush on Davey Jones (the sensitive, British guy) or Micky Dolenz (the quirky drummer/singer). So I am pretty ecstatic that the band will be touring the UK to celebrate their 45th anniversary. And look, it kicks off on my birthday—May 12! Davey and Micky are both on board for the tour, as is Peter Tork—only Mike Nesmith opted not to be a part of the event. I might even possibly go to London for this. Maybe. [UPI] Keep reading »

Video Games And Kissing—Better When Combined?

Here’s a suggestion for getting more makeout time with your significant other—make smooching part of video game! Hye Yeon Nam has created the Kissing Controller, a headset that makes it so you and your honey’s smooches guide the bowling ball on what appears to be Wii Bowling. Seriously, by the tongue motion and speed of your kiss, you control how fast the ball goes and the degree of spin. Fun? This video is totally awkward, but the applications here could get pretty interesting, especially if you’re dating someone who is addicted to World of Warcraft. [Engadget] Keep reading »

The Daily Ovulation: Little Girl Determined Not To Get Married Before She Has A Job


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 »

Christina Applegate’s Birth Experience Was Profound

“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.

Shopping Guide: 9 Adorable Cross-Body Bags

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.
