I saw this Tumblr post where a girl made a list of the reasons why she thinks she’s single. While “I just haven’t met the right person,” is a great catch-all, I thought I’d try to dig a little deeper. Ya know, in the interest of self-awareness. Check out my “Why I’m Single” list after the jump. What would your list say? Keep reading »
Andreas Muller won a Mini Cooper for tattooing the word “Mini” on his peen. “Once I’m sitting in the car, it won’t matter anymore. Then the pain will be gone and it’ll be alright,” he said. What about the humiliation he will feel every time he drops his pants before a lady? No car is worth destroying your penis, Andreas. [Anorak] Keep reading »
Was Fox in cahoots with Kleenex for last night’s “American Idol” episode? Because the brand of tissue might as well have been the episode’s unofficial sponsor, considering the simultaneously heartbreaking and heartwarming story shown during the last 10 minutes. (The rest of the episode, save the weirdo who participates in Civil War reenactments with the hippie dad, was basically throw away.)
A few years ago, after dating for six years, Chris Medina proposed to his girlfriend Juliana. Two months before their wedding, Juliana was in an accident that left her with a traumatic brain injury. Their wedding was put on hold and Chris, along with Juliana’s mother, is his fiancee’s caregiver. “I was about to make vows just two months from the accident – through thick and thin, ’til death do us part, for better or worse,” he said. “What kind of guy would I be if I walked out when she needed me the most?” Chris told his story to the judges and then sang “Breakeven” by The Script, saying that making it through to Hollywood would give his fiancee something to be happy about.

Steven Tyler leaned down to whisper in her ear, in a moment that seriously had me heaving with sobs, “I just heard your fiancé sing. He sings to you all the time. I could tell.

Did the hem on your skirt come undone? Rip a hole in your quilt by accident? Now a crafty girl like you can save the day without lugging a big ol’ heavy sewing machine out of the closet. Who really has extra space in her apartment to set up a sewing machine, anyway? Not us! (And if you do have the space, we totally hate you.) But with a Smartek cordless sewing machine, you can finish easy projects with no hassle at all! It has four metal bobbins with thread, two speeds, three machine needles, one threader and a spindle. All it takes is four AA batteries and a shoebox-sized amount of storage space. Sew adorable!
