This week, The Frisky will be revealing their oh-so-ambitious resolutions for 2009. We encourage you to submit yours in the comments—maybe you’ll inspire others to adapt the same resolutions and at the very least you’ll get some support. Especially for your resolution to eat more donuts this year. That’s something we can all get behind. Take it away, Annika…
1. Get a driver’s license: I put this on my resolutions list last year, but only achieved part of it. I was born and raised in NYC, so having a car is more of a luxury than a necessity. But now that I’m getting older I want to add a license to my list of accomplishments.
2. Go to Europe: I haven’t been to Europe since I was a little babe. My plan is to reconnect with my cousin in London or my friend in Slovakia, so I can’t use not having a travel companion as an excuse. I also plan to adapt my style to where ever I’m going, so I don’t stick out like a tourist.
3. Pay off my credit card: I’m sick and tired of my credit card debt. And this year, I’ll actually have the means to pay it off in one fell swoop. So I will ignore whatever heels or boots that catch my eye until I’ve paid my debt.

We’ve all had something that we’re really excited about initially, but then it lets us down. At that point, we have to reassess our “loves it” list and move on to the next thing. These 10 items were overdone in 2008, so in 2009 we’re ending our love affair. Keep reading »
If you buy something at German sex toy shop Condomi, your purchase will be put one of these highly sexual shopping bags. While the person who came up with this was certainly clever, he (I’m guessing it was a he) is a total pervert. But, hey, at least they come in a guy version. [via Glamour] Keep reading »
I was pissed when my uncle announced at our rehearsal dinner, “You know you’re taking your honeymoon during hurricane season, right?” Well, duh! But it was my honeymoon, which meant that everything was destined to be perfect. Unless a certain relative opened up his yap and jinxed it all. Which is exactly what happened. That’s right, I’m blaming Uncle John, not seasonal weather systems moving through the Caribbean, for Hurricane Omar ruining my honeymoon. Keep reading »
We get a lot of mail from readers, some insanely flattering, some helpful (thanks for doing a little free copy-editing for us, guys!), and plenty of nasty hate mail. With that in mind, we’re going to post some of the best reader mail we get from time to time, because we totally appreciate that you even take the time to write!
“I’m a normal dude who read one of your articles while on the CNN site — wow, is this stuff a big bag of crazy. It’s like ‘that crazy chick I dated in college’ merged with ‘all that is irrelevant.’ Please, do something worthwhile — volunteer, travel, read a book (not about fashion or ‘guys’), or for god-sakes learn accounting.”
Psst, we were that crazy chick you dated in college — guess you were too drunk to remember. Anyhoo, thanks for reminding us — it’s time for The Frisky’s Daily Math Problem!

The Church of England published draft legislation that would allow for women to be ordained as bishops, an issue that has long divided Anglicans. The proposed measures will go up for debate in February, and there have been threats by more than 1,300 clergy to quite if safeguards are not put in place. Keep reading »
Sometimes I wish I was a virgin. OK, maybe that’s going too far, but lately I’ve been feeling like the sluttiest girl in New York, or at least whatever room I happen to be in. It’s not because I’m ashamed of my sexual past — I truly believe that everyone I’ve slept with, from one night-stands to relationships to threesomes, has made me who I am today. Keep reading »
