In Defense Of “Mad Men”‘s Megan

Well, it wasn’t the fairytale ending many “Mad Men” viewers hoped for. But it was a fairytale ending for one character in particular — Megan, Don Draper‘s secretary and soon-to-be … well, let’s not spoil it for those of you who might have missed the episode. Spoilers after the jump! Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I Don’t Have A Posse

I’ll be frank: not having a close group of girl friends makes me feel like a failure.

Sometimes not having a close group of friends makes me feel like a failure, but mostly it’s not having a posse of girlfriends, six or eight women to flank me in salmon bridesmaids gowns, that makes me feel like I’ve done something wrong. Aren’t I supposed to have women with whom to start a book club, a knitting circle? Isn’t there supposed to be a core group to call upon for appletinis in our most satin-y, shiniest clothes? Aren’t we supposed to rehash Saturday night’s antics over Sunday brunch? Groups of friends aren’t just reflected back everywhere at me in pop culture — The Babysitters Club, “90210,” “Gossip Girl,” “Sex & The City” — but in the lives of other women I know as well. But my life just doesn’t, and hasn’t ever, looked like that. Keep reading »

A Dessert With A Little Kick!

A glass of wine and a bowl of fruity sorbet make a mouth-watering dessert. But did you know you can have both tastes for the price of one? Wine Cellar Sorbet infuses its sorbets with extracts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Champagne, white wine, Pinot Noir, Riesling, ruby port, sake, and red wine. The result is a non-alcoholic and refreshing treat that’s sure to please the palate … and the tummy because the sorbets are all-natural and dairy-free. What a satisfying way to end a romantic evening or put yourself to bed.

MySneezee, For Those Who Want To Spread Germs Differently

I am thrilled that all my Christmas shopping worries are over! I’m going to get everyone MySneezee. I just know all my friends will love it. The idea is this: If you’ve got the winter flu, a cold, or some other terrible disease, and you’re sneezing a lot, you probably have a tendency to sneeze into your hands, which you then touch other people with, giving them your plague. But with MySneezee, you wear this very fashionable arm band — I want the one with the skulls and flames! — and when you have to sneeze, you just sneeze into your MySneezee arm band. Frankly, I am unclear on why you would be less likely to spread germs through your forearm than through your hands, especially if you walked around wearing a sneeze-covered arm band all day, but what do I know? Not a lot. Only $19.95 if you order now, people! Keep reading »

Dear Wendy Updates: Long-Distance Lovesick Responds

It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from Long-Distance Lovesick, the young woman who was in a long-distance relationship with a guy in Germany whom she’d started out as pen pals with and had met only once when he came to see her over the summer. She was planning to move to Germany to be with him, but was concerned that by giving up her friends and social life to work two jobs to afford the move, she was the only person sacrificing for the relationship. She also mentioned that the only interaction they have is one hour a week on Skype and that he had only recently told his family about her. We all had some big words of warning for her. Did she take heed or is she still planning to move? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »

Christine O’Donnell Gets Auto-Tuned


I’m still not over the magicalness of auto-tuning. Especially when applied to Christine “I’m Not A Witch” O’Donnell. This brought a tear to my eye. But that’s probably because I was laughing so hard. [The Daily What] Keep reading »
