Hump Day Lunchtime Poll: 2 Days And $5 Million Dollars

The bitchy “Heathers” chicks are kind of our heroes. And in honor of them, and all the foxy Veronicas out there, we’ve started a new series called Lunchtime Poll. Share your answer to our lunchtime poll in the comments and we’ll highlight our fave answers later this week. First up, the classic Lunchtime Poll, straight from the movie “Heathers”:

You win five million dollars from the Publisher’s sweepstakes, and the same day as that big Ed guy gives you the check, aliens land on the Earth and say they’re going to blow up the world in two days. What are you gonna do with the money?

Dear Wendy: “I’m Engaged But Fantasizing About A Colleague”

I am happily engaged to a wonderful man, and we are planning an amazing life together in the years to come. I couldn’t be more excited about how my life has turned out thus far. But over the past year, I have developed an excellent working relationship with someone I have a lot in common with. My company is actually his client, and I am his main contact. Until recently, our interaction had been only through email or over the phone. But at an industry event several weeks ago, we finally had a chance to connect in person, and it turns out that he is QUITE the looker. A few drinks were had at an after party, and he admitted that he had feelings for me and tried to kiss me. I was taken off guard and sincerely flattered, and though I did not kiss him or become physically involved, I didn’t remove myself from the situation immediately. Since then, I have found my thoughts drifting to him, and to what would have happened if I had let myself slip up. My rational self wants nothing to do with slipping up! I am already resolved to drink less and leave earlier at the next industry event. But I am having trouble managing my daydreams, and my ego it seems. How do I kill this fantasy so I can get back to my real life and love? — Afraid of Slipping Up

Reader Mailbag: On Gender Equality

I get very nice mail from readers (thank you!), every once in a while I get pretty awful mail, and sometimes I get mail like the following letter, which just makes me scratch my head and say, “Huh?”

Subject: Compliments on “Padded Underwear Gives Men A Bigger Bulge

…but you’re too cynical. For years we men have stood by and watched as women have advanced on the territory we thought was our own – going to the best colleges, getting prestigious and high paying jobs, owning big houses, driving cool cars. Now it’s our turn to take some of the ground that your side has held. So look out world – dyed hair, plastic surgery, and hair plugs were only the first steps. Padded underwear is next. We’ll know that we’ve arrived at true equality when men begin anxiously asking their wives and girlfriends whether their butt looks too big. All best. xxxx

Tim Gunn Admits He Attempted Suicide

Tim Gunn admits he once attempted suicide in a PSA for the Trevor Project—a hotline for LGBT and questioning youth. “As a 17-year-old youth who was in quite a bit of despair, I attempted to kill myself,” he confesses. “When I woke up the next morning after taking more than 100 pills, I was in a whole other level of despair. I thought, ‘I shouldn’t be here. This isn’t what was meant to be.’” His message is that “it gets better” and “you can’t do this alone.” It certainly got better for Tim. He found a way to make it work and in doing so he’s had a very successful life and career. I commend him for making this video. It’s raw and honest and I think it will inspire a lot of young people.

Mind Of Man: What My Sister Taught Me

My big sister’s favorite game to play with me as a child was a simple one that I’ll just call “Lure John into the dark basement, then race up the stairs and lock the door.” It was a game that I always lost, and she always won. I’d beg her to open the door, and she’d just cackle. My sister had a wicked snicker. She wasn’t sadistic. This was just the law of the jungle. The price I paid for her not smothering me in the cradle. The door would eventually open like her arms and her laughter would be a sprinkler on a summer day, soaking us both. So we’d both end up laughing, and there would be no grudges. Because there really aren’t any grudges between brothers and sisters. Brothers and sisters are as close as peanut butter and jelly.

Banana Republic Returns To Safari

If you grew up in the ’90s, then you know that Banana Republic used to be the one-stop shop for the urban pioneer who wanted to look as if she went on safari. This Heritage Printed Canvas Tote not only continues our canvas bag obsession from the summer, but also reminds us of our youth, when dirt was OK and everything didn’t have to be pristine. The rich textured fabric looks like it was recycled from a coffee sack, and the leather handles only add to the authentic travel feel. This is a classic and sensible tote you’ll want to hold on to for all your excursions … even in the concrete jungle.
