Hosiery used to be something many women hated having to wear to the office, when nude pantyhose were the primary option. But now tights in every color, pattern, and texture imaginable are both trendy and readily available, and wearing them no longer seems like a chore. (Unless, of course, it’s February and you are just dying for the bare-legged warmth of spring.) The Wall Street Journal put together this handy little matrix of different types of hosiery, breaking down which are sexy or sensible, and party- or office-appropriate. [WSJ] Keep reading »
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 »
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 »
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

“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 »
