This weekend, I made an horrifying discovery. I have a bald spot. It’s small, but it’s at the top of my head, right where, if the hair around it is swirling in a certain direction, it is visible to anyone standing six to 10 feet behind me. The good news about my bald spot is that I don’t think it’s permanent. I think the hair can and will grow back. But the success of that is dependent upon the bad news. See, I am solely responsible for giving myself a bald spot in the first place.
I have a picking problem. Keep reading »
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): You may have recently pitched back a volley that you thought put the ball forever out of your court, but watch out, as something crazy is going to come flying back, aiming right for your heart. Whether or not this is something you should dodge is likely something you already know, but whichever the case, get back into you’re A-game mode and set this victory straight!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Freaking out over others’ incompetence isn’t going to help, as a day is only so long and you’ll need it all to correct their mistakes. While this is a thankless job, know you’re the only one that can save the day, and for that, be ready to pat yourself on back — and if that means purchasing something dramatic and expensive, well, why not? You’ll certainly earn that keep. Keep reading »

Instead, you’re falling for the ideal man in your head, who you’re hoping he’ll be. Keep reading »
In my favorite scientific study of the week, researchers discovered that humans, not unlike our friends the dogs, rely quite a bit on scent to assess new people. Just because we don’t bend down and sniff butt hole doesn’t mean we’re not taking an important introductory whiff when we meet someone new. The study, done in Poland, had 30 men and 30 women without perfume, deodorant, or scented soap, wear white cotton tees. Their T-shirts were then given to people to sniff and predict what kind of person the shirt belonged to. Researchers found that we have the ability to predict certain personality traits — like extroversion, neurosis, and dominance — with great accuracy just by using our noses. This means smell is particularly important when sniffing out a mate. Always make sure his personality smells good before accepting a second date. [Live Science]
The last time I spread my legs for a doctor (and no, I haven’t slept with anyone in scrubs), Lindsay Lohan was a law-abiding citizen. Somehow, I had managed to put off my visit to the friendly gyno longer than I cared to admit. A close friend’s recent alarming diagnosis post-gyno visit had fueled me into action. Oh, and my medical insurance suddenly had an expiration date. I’d just been laid off from a job I’d held down for the last six years, the lease on my New York City apartment was about to end, along with the dollars in my bank account. I was, in what you might call, a very large pickle. Keep reading »
