Awesome Affordable Etsy Find: Horse Girl Notebook

Remember that girl from elementary school who genuinely thought she was a horse? Every class had one. She would gallop around the playground at recess and she ate a shocking amount of carrots and when the teacher would call her name she would say, “I only answer to my real name, Tumbles!” I was pretty good friends with the horse girl for awhile, but eventually we grew apart. By third grade, I was ready to move on to more mature schoolyard games like Pirate Ship War and Escape From the Orphanage, but every day with her it was “Let’s play horse show! Brush my mane!” Frankly, it got a little tedious.

Maybe you loved the Horse Girl, maybe you hated her, maybe you were her, but in any case this awesome hand-stitched notebook is a great way to honor her memory. Ride on, Horse Girl, ride on. [Notebook, $18] Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “I Can’t Stop Dreaming About My Ex”

I keep dreaming about my first love, in an obsessive, gut-wrenching way, even though I am in a long-term relationship with a man that I really truly love. My current boyfriend is amazing to me and I am really scared I am going to screw things up because of my strange behavior. The dreaming started when I saw my ex for the first time last summer, after not seeing him for three years. In my dreams I am trying to read letters from him that I can never open, or we are having an affair. I always choose my boyfriend in the end, even though there is a part of me that misses my old love. I get that this is a closure issue, but the question is how do I deal with it? Do I seek him (the ex) out to try and make the dreams go away or do I continue to suppress them, which has over the past year only made things worse? I have to do something, because they just won’t stop. — Sleepless in Seattle

Princess-ification Is Everywhere … Even The Bible

I am no Biblical scholar. Far from it. But there is one thing I know from the Bible stories that I have read: there weren’t any princesses. Or frilly dresses, tutus or tiaras. Not so in My Princess Bible, a pink-washed Bible storybook for young girls about “God’s special princess.”

WNBA Star Diana Taurasi Poses Naked On The Cover Of ESPN Magazine

Cue the controversy and strike up the blogger debates. WNBA star Diana Taurasi appears naked on the cover of ESPN magazine’s annual body issue. The Phoenix Mercury guard/forward is one of a bevy of athletes posing in the buff with strategically placed athletic gear for the magazine; among Taurasi’s peers in the issue: tennis star Venus Williams, surfer and hottie Kelly Slater, and MMA fighter Gina Carano. In all likelihood, some critics will suggest the basketball player’s sexy and revealing cover is little more than sports-related sexploitation, but Taurasi says, “I am who I am — whether I have clothes on or off.” However it pans out, we’re happy to see a woman on a magazine cover flaunting her real body.

Girl Talk: Go Ahead, You Can Call Me Ugly

Late last month, Republican firebrand Ann Coulter spoke at Homocon, an event organized by GOProud, an organization of gay conservatives. In her remarks, she tried to convince gays and lesbians in attendance that they shouldn’t want, or have the right, to get married. The week before that, following her victory in the Delaware GOP primary, Christine O’Donnell became a household name (and a political punch line), mostly thanks to her arch-conservative views on sex and masturbation.

More recently, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi predicted that the U.S. military’s controversial “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy would be dead by the end of this year. And in a few days, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be heading to the Balkans to attend talks between Serbia and Kosovo on Kosovar independence.

Important issues, sure, but let’s not let them distract us from what really matters, people: Are these ladies hot or not? Keep reading »

Not Your Average Picnic Basket. At All.

We’re approaching winter. So while it might not exactly be picnic season, we’re beginning to think there’s no reason to stop outdoor dining, especially after seeing the squeal-worthy goods from Boxal. The eco-friendly packaging company creates cheeky cardboard picnic boxes, each complete with biodegradable utensils and plates, plus recycled napkins. These aren’t any old cardboard boxes, mind you. The Urban Picnic set sports an illustration of a boom box, while the Office Escape mimics a briefcase. Even if you’re not going to eat outside … how cute would it be to show up at your girlfriend/boyfriend’s place with a prepared meal and a classy box to pack it all up in?
