365 Days In Paris: Present Tense

Third date with Mr. Cupid. We were sitting in a bar in Belleville, where I had dragged him to my friend’s spoken word song night. (Yeah. I know. Long story.) But it was there, scrunched in between boho expatriates and enduring the sounds of bad slam poetry, that we kissed. A quick peck initiated by him that turned into a full-out make-out session when we left and had a drink at an outdoor cafe. Coming up for air, I looked at our nearly-drained glasses and back into his eyes.

“So … did you want to get something to eat (we both hadn’t eaten yet), or get another drink?” Keep reading »

Sometimes You Shouldn’t Mind Your Own Business

On Friday night I was on my way back to my apartment, late at night, with a couple of friends in tow. I live in a really hoppin’ area so there were tons of people on the streets. Suddenly, I overheard a guy screaming at a woman, who was wedged into a corner near a building. I was a few sheets to the wind myself, so I can’t remember exactly what he was saying to her, but I immediately noticed her cowering, a look of fear on her face. I stopped and watched for a moment. My friends were encouraging me to catch up and not worry about what was, in their eyes, a lovers’ quarrel. I didn’t move. The man continued to scream at the woman and then started to walk off, while she stood, unable to move. I need to do something, I thought to myself. This doesn’t seem right. Keep reading »

For The Week Of September 28-October 4, 2009

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Settle any debts — either monetary or emotional — and get your power back. Whatever circumstance has been making you feel insecure lately will be magically reversed, but only if you wish to see you are way above what has entrapped you. From here the future is open, beautiful and full of bright new opportunities!

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Sublime forces are at work, settling your mind and body into a state of total relaxation and bliss by the week’s end. This will come in the form of utter apathy or finally getting all the pieces of the puzzle put in their proper place and realizing what a good thing you have. Either/or, expect that you’ll get all the insight you need to plan your next move.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

People who think you have all day have you all wrong. If they inherently aren’t getting the basic side of you, making you feel special in one form or another, realize they won’t ever. Real romance doesn’t mean working hard to prove yourself. If they don’t get the awesomeness that is you STAT, they aren’t for you, end of discussion.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Reality is about to shine its light upon your ego and show the enormity of importance that you live your life under. Not to say you shouldn’t think you’re that delightful, but consider that perhaps, maybe perhaps, your baby has got a point in how one-sided your points of view are. Time to take a good look in the mirror and start owning up to being a “we,” not just a “me.”

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Unfortunately, this is the week when your relationship isn’t just about you and your boo — but your families too. Whoever’s relatives are coming into the picture, yours or his, it won’t be pretty. Seems disaster will plague you, as drama, raucous opinions and just utterly bad behavior will be happening. How you both deal with this will be a true testament of your bond.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Put your feelings out there and let go. Free yourself of the shackle and chains in which you bear your emotions alone. Tear down the barriers; say what you want and how you want it. If all will work out, it will, but if you want action, it’ll mean taking responsibility for yourself and throwing the ball in their court. After all, it’s never going to work unless you’re both playing.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

A jolt to your long-term thinking is going to happen and sudden changes to your trajectory are in the stars. Don’t be surprised if you unexpectedly get sick of routines and the comfort zone you are in and crave a lot more excitement. Sure, this might just be a wild lost week or it could be a whole new way of life. Whichever, be open to anything!

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Laying down the law means no more negotiating. As compassionate as you may be to hear another’s sob story, realize that a deadline is a deadline and once they have passed the time allotted, you have to stand on it as is. After all, if they can’t work at your speed, what kind of wavelength are they on? Do you really need to spend your precious time waiting? Think not.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Stop looking for excuses to bury your head in. Time to drop the rose-colored glasses and get back in the trenches. Just coasting along, thinking everything will fall into place isn’t going to happen. If it was going to, it would have already. Time for action and realizing you have to be the one to steer your destiny — as in picking a destination — instead of letting one pick you.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

A hotheaded friend may explode at any given minute. Seems pent-up feelings about how you’re dealing with your current dalliances and their fascist opinions will clash this week. Although you’ll do whatever you want to do anyway, do realize the judgmental police are out and waiting for you to mess up. While this doesn’t sound nice, do consider they may have some insight.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Career woes are about to come to a close, freeing up your mind and self-esteem back to normal levels and giving you the ability to start acting out on your whims. Expect a wild surge of emotions to come flooding in and go with it. Consider this acting out of your subconscious to be the most emotionally truth-revealing experience you’ve had in ages.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Always being the cheerleader is a pain the ass and a fairly thankless job if you aren’t rooting for the right team. This week, put down those pompoms and see what happens when you aren’t the one valiantly supporting relationship matters at hand. After all, it takes two. If you aren’t feeling the same enthusiasm back, this is the time to deal with it.

6 Bad Reasons To Marry, Starring Khloe Kardashian

As I was taking in a soda pop and the morning interweb browse today, I noticed that one of the Kardashian sisters became engaged, “Whoopty-doo hurray!,” I thought. I was pretty happy for Kim and her guy Reggie Bush, I mean “finally,” right? They’d had a tough go of it, but maybe it’s just meant to be. But it wasn’t Kim Kardashian getting engaged. Which means that it must be have been Kourtney Kardashian, the expecting sister who is yet unmarried and unbetrothed. Way to “do the right thing,” Scott Disick, I thought. But I still was guessing the wrong Kardashian. It turns out that baby Khloe Kardashian is going to beat her older, diminutive sisters down the aisle. Keep reading »

From Ice To Nice: Six Ways To Be More Approachable

When I was in high school, one of my friends was the most sought-after girl in school. I had other friends that were prettier, smarter, and nicer but boys were crazy for her.

It took me a little while, but I finally figured out why she was constantly asked out, in a relationship or every guy’s dream girl. She was approachable. Keep reading »

What Women Want From Men

When it comes to articles about what women want from men, we can always count on Men’s Health to completely steer its readers in the completely wrong direction (wrestling, anyone?). Thank God for Esquire though, a publication that actually gives its readers advice we can second. In an article posted online yesterday called “How To Feel Good To A Woman,” writer Lisa Taddeo gives 11 suggestions that’ll make a woman swoon (no, really), including keeping a bathroom stocked with thick, fluffy, freshly stacked towels, kissing her neck, kissing her neck again, kissing “for longer than you can handle” (we women want a lot of kissing) “even when you know that more is on the way. Openmouthed, and bench the tongue. Urgent but not desperate,” and pushing the hair, not pulling it. It’s a great list, for sure, but come on, only 11 suggestions? We women are far easier to please than that! After the jump, five more things women want from men. Keep reading »

Decode My Dream: I Am A Vampire!

Last night I had a bizarre dream. In the dream I was a vampire. I was hanging out in this dark mansion at night with a bunch of other people, none of whom I recognize from waking life.  I was the only vampire, but it seemed as if there were two of me; one that was watching from a removed point of view, and the other that was a twelve-year-old child vampire.  This child was quite charming, and everyone liked her, even though she was a vampire.  As I watched, she began to stalk a boy (similar in age to her), and when she got him alone she ate all of his skin off.  He remained alive, but skinless and bloody.  She then barfed all of his blood back onto him, and ate it again.  She started stalking other people in the same manner, only attacking when they were alone.  She had a voracious appetite.  I thought I should warn her that this behavior might not be acceptable to the others, but she ate my skin off and, as I was sitting there a gooey mess, patiently convinced me that she was serving some higher purpose, some higher good.  All the time I recognized that she was a projection of myself–I was both she and I at the same time.  Later, everyone sat down to have a conference, during which she explained her plan, and I defended it. Nobody was convinced, and this began a heated argument, at which point I woke up.

 Any insight? – Skinless
