Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
How many times have we all wished we could pee standing up like a man? It would just make life so much easier. If you’re on the highway and really need to go, you won’t need to squat in a shady woodsy area with rodents and insects keeping you company. Well, wish no more! Hot on the heels of products like Whiz Biz and the Shenis is a new female urination device called Go Girl. It allows you to stand up and pee like the fellas — only the fellas don’t have to put a urine soaked doohickey back in their purses afterward. Honestly, instead of always complaining about how much better our lives would be if we could pee like a guy, there are actually benefits to peeing like a girl that we take for granted. After the jump, ten reasons sitting down instead of standing up has its advantages.
According to a new poll, women are way more likely than men to “stalk” an ex online, with 62% of the 1700 people polled admitting to looking up a former love online. I totally believe that women use the Internet more often than men to garner information on a crush, look up the whereabouts of exes, and check out a former flame’s new significant other. In fact, Catherine and I were just discussing the fact that none of our recent dates seemed to have Googled us, which I kind of find…insulting. But I don’t think “looking up” an ex (or a crush or the competition) online is the same as “stalking.” After the jump, I break down the differences between just snoopin’ and totally stalking when it comes to online behavior.

Too bad Valentine’s Day is over, because I would have asked my imaginary boyfriend for some Happy Roses. All the way from Prague (actually they’re so cool they’re not even available in the States yet), the stems are treated with natural pigments, and then something magical happens to make each petal a different color. Don’t they kind of remind you of that “science” project you did in elementary school, where you added food coloring to a vase and watched a white carnation turn blue a few days later?

Sarah Jessica Parker said she and the “Sex and the City” movie producers are trying to make the sequel recession-friendly, a tough task because “SATC” is all about luxury and fine living. To help out, we’ve put together a few ideas. If SJP and Darren Star use our suggestions, we expect to see “The Frisky” in the movie’s credits. And a pair of Manolos. Keep reading »

“I’m a Leo girl (Capricorn Ascendant, Moon in Aries, Mars in Capricorn, Venus in Libra) and I’m extremely emotional. I’m dating a really great guy (Sun in Virgo, Sagittarius Ascendant, Moon in Aquarius, Mars in Leo, Venus in Libra) who is really into me. We have been together for over a year and have a great relationship. We rarely argue, still have an exciting sex life and I think we balance each other out very well. My emotional personality goes well with his practicality and discipline. However, our relationship started out while he was in the process of getting divorced — he and his ex wife have been divorced for eight months now. We’ve gone through numerous difficulties and have come out of those issues closer and stronger than before. My problem seems to be trusting him and controlling my jealous impulses. I want to put my wandering mind to rest and believe that he is faithful. I have no reason NOT to believe this, as he constantly speaks with me and tells me he loves and misses me, but sometimes I can’t help but think that he is sleeping with his ex or someone he works with.
He talks about the future constantly. However, he is skeptical about moving too fast because he thinks that was his issue with his ex-wife. He says that things will develop naturally over time. However, my impatient nature has me ready to move in with him right away. He frequently says, ‘It’s not the right time for us.’ I know I should be patient, trust him and give him time, especially since he just recently got divorced, but I can’t seem to lock my emotions down and trust that this is the right thing for us right now. Help!” – Leo Lady Keep reading »
Cosmetic surgeons have always seemed like the used car salesmen of doctors — they profit off women (and men) not liking parts of their bodies and being willing to pay to change them. But have you ever wondered if these crafty folks try to charm and sell patients on treatments that they hadn’t considered before? Melanie Berliet, a Vanity Fair writer, went undercover to test her hypothesis that plastic surgeons try to sell additional procedures to patients that they don’t “need.” The 5’9″, 120-pound 27-year-old, who wears a size 34B bra, went into the consultations under the guise of wanting breast augmentation. Surprisingly, the three surgeons had different reactions to her physique, but all of them recommended procedures she hadn’t originally asked for. Find out the deets, after the jump… Keep reading »
As I see it, there should be no discussion of a relationship, or exclusivity, within the first three months of dating. Those three months should be a drama and ultimatum-free zone. No jealousy or commitment. Just a period of savoring; the gritty, totally worth it hard work can come later. Save it, potentially, for the rest of your life.
If something works between two people, then there is no rush. That “click” will still be there in three months, and hopefully six, and a year, etc. And once you find that unlucky slob who will Eskimo kiss you when you’re sick, all you have to do in order to preserve your new found mutual attraction is to chill the f**k out, have faith, and not flinch. Let it happen. Keep reading »
