Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Pixar’s latest, Wall-E hits theaters June 27, and this is the trailer. I am such a sucker for nerdy guys (even nerdy robots). When Wall-E and Eve are holding hands, my heart melts. Keep reading »
“Can a woman get cervical cancer if a smoker routinely goes down on her?” — Paranoid About My Puffer, Houston, TX
There hasn’t been any real medical research to support this claim, but you’re not totally crazy. If I had to take a guess, I’d say having a smoker go down on you is like putting Equal in your coffee. It’s not awesome for you, but if you don’t eat eight bathtubs full of it a day you’ll be fine.
There’s an interesting story in the New York Times today about a happy household with widely different political views — their front yard sports signs for both John McCain and Barack Obama. You may have heard of them — California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (a Republican) and his wife, Kennedy family member, Maria Shriver (a Democrat). “I think there are great benefits to having kids grow up understanding that we do not live in a one-party system,” Shriver said. “That there are two ways at looking at an issue. To be patient, and to compromise, those are good lessons not just in politics but for life. I grew up believing there was only one way to think. There isn’t.” A couple weeks ago, we decided to ask people on the street just how capable they would be of being with someone with different political views — their answers may surprise you.

Here’s the deal. A few months ago, I was dating a guy I was really into. One night, at a party, a friend of mine approached us. Except, she didn’t seem to want to talk to me — she flirted with my man while his arm was wrapped around me! She even asked for his email address and then fumbled for a reason — she wanted to add him to her comedy show’s e-blast. I’m so sure — at least wait for the relationship to die before you swoop in like a vulture. But since I didn’t want to cause a Jerry Springer-style scene over it, I shrugged it off and thought, Nice try sweetheart, but he’s leaving with me.
A couple months later, that guy and I broke up and she friended me on Facebook. Feeling guilty for making fun of her and even sillier for holding a grudge on someone who clearly wasn’t a threat, I decided to accept her friendship (on the Internet at least). But Facebook is full of all sorts of TMI — profile picture changes, updates on favorite books, and the one that got me: accepted friend requests. Months after the chick hit on my man — okay, my ex-man — he accepted her friend request as well. I did a little web-stalking and found out that they’re now dating. I’ve always thought that I didn’t care about exes and friends dating (like when Denise Richards hooked up with her friend Heather Locklear’s husband after they split), but now I’m rethinking my position. What’s your verdict? Keep reading »

Add this to a list of things that make me want to puke, alongside tween thongs, padded tween bras, and Miss Bimbo — soft and snuggly hooker heels for your baby! Oh, but they’re supposed to be FUNNY. Yeah. No. I swear nipple tassles for toddlers aren’t far off. Better get on that idea quick! [Heelarious.com via DListed] Keep reading »
