Croque Mon Awesome: What’s Your Favorite Sandwich?

I’m definitely one of those “live to eat” people, not an “eat to live” type. And so when I heard about My Social Chef blogger Petrit Husenaj’s chocolate and cheese sandwich my heart began to flutter. So many delicious, fatty calories! Husenaj’s sandwich, dubbed the “Bad Romance,” has all the important food groups — cheese, chocolate, bread and butter — and was inspired by his childhood in Belgium: “I came up with this cheese and chocolate sandwich as a fat kid spending a summer in Belgium and trying to get all things Belgian in my belly,” he says.

I had similar sandwich adventures when I was a kid … Keep reading »

Dater X: Why Does Rejection Make Us So Angry?

I looked at his profile before I read the email he sent—a rookie online dating mistake. The guy in the photos looked highly attractive—green eyes, a shaved head, a strong, square jaw line, and an impeccable sense of style. In his answers to the cheesy profile questions, he managed to seem funny and charming. I had a good feeling as I finally opened the email he’d sent me.

“Hey gorgeous. Ran across your profile, and you are so my type it’s scary. Hope you don’t mind that I am picturing you naked. You into something casual? Think we’d have mind blowing sex.”

Behold: The Tina Fey Swimsuit Calendar

I think you know what you’re getting, oh, everyone you know for the holiday season—the 2011 Tina Fey Swimsuit Calendar. The way I phrased that makes it sound like there was such a calendar for 2010, but there wasn’t. This is a brand-new concept that Tina unveiled over the weekend at “Night of Too Many Stars,” a Comedy Central special that will air later this month. All the images contain Tina’s head Photoshopped onto a bikini-clad body. And, yes, she’s wearing her glasses in every shot. Hawt! [NY Post] Keep reading »

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.”
