What Are You A Sucker For?

This morning, instead of brewing my own coffee as I normally do, I decided to go out and get a cup. I felt like taking a walk and clearing my head. At 7:45 a.m., still half-asleep, I made the executive decision to go out in mismatched clothing, my hair unbrushed, and last night’s mascara still on. Not to snark on myself, but I wasn’t looking my best. I ordered my coffee and the cute guy behind the counter was starting at me. I looked away as I was sure he was horrified by my raccoon eye. I became self conscious. But then he said something that surprised me. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: Growing Up Without A Mother

I’ve never been a big fan of Mother’s Day. It’s not the commercialization that fuels my dislike, though — it’s that for 14 years, I haven’t had a mother to celebrate.

On September 20th, 1996, my mother’s 36th birthday, she died. Four years earlier, she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. In the intervening time, she endured hours of chemotherapy and radiation, the loss of her hair to the chemo and a breast to mastectomy, a surgery to reconstruct her missing breast, a bone marrow transplant, and countless days away from her family in the hospital. All this while raising three children and making sure that “cancer” was never, ever a dirty word in our house. Keep reading »

For The Week Of May 2-8, 2011

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Heavy discussions will break out this week, but it will be the best thing to happen to you and your boo in ages! Yes, major truth bombs are going to be dropped and they will clear up assumptions that have gone on in your relationship for far too long. As it goes, clarity is in store and hot romance to follow, as there’ll be no more barriers to hold back the love.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Don’t be too fast to jump the gun on a hot and intense passion that seems to have all the qualities you are looking for — everyone has skeletons in their closets. Until you know all the details, be cautious in spilling all your feelings as what you see may not be what you get. Sure, it might be better than you imagined, but how often does that happen?

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Just say “yes,” and be over with it. Forget worrying about consequences — this week is all about embracing the now and the next level of commitment in your life and trusting the world you’ve made around you will support whatever happens next. Besides, there are no guarantees, just individual moments. So embrace this week’s, because it’s a beauty!

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Organization will play a major role in your life this week if you want it to be a successful one. So, make lists if you have to and stay on point. As it goes, you are on a one-way track to destiny now and it’ll be up to you to keep up the momentum. However, do know that falling behind can ruin the stride, so realize you do have fate in your own hands now.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

The stars will align for a blissful week of love, romance and sensuality. Just don’t over-think things; connections will take time to build and if you just give a little, you will see that a doorway to another world is there, but will need a bit of pushing to get through. So trust your instincts, as you will find strange surprises in the oddest locations.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Being stubborn doesn’t always win you love, but it will win you respect if you are standing by something you believe in. However, this week, standing by your cause will do more than just get what you’re after, but rank you a few levels higher on the hotness scale when it comes to that certain someone watching you in action. Seems sometimes you can have it all.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Be careful what you reveal this week, because it will have a lasting impact on who you are talking to. So, be ready to stand behind what you say, as spewing out any form of bull will come back to bite you quickly. As it goes, your words will be gold now, so spend them wisely and share only what you truly want to spare.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

What you give is going to be what you get this week, in exact amounts. So, be ready to be truly honest with yourself, as you won’t be able to fake your way through things — your discomfort will have a more obvious way of showing this week. While this won’t make your week the easiest, it will make it more interesting and way more substantial.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Who cares what dilemmas may hold you back now? Miracles are in store as you will suddenly realize that you are in control and that you do get what you want, if it really matters. Yes, perspective is the gift you will get this week, so use it to the best of your abilities and get those ducks in a row!

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Some little birdie told me there could be a sweet dream that is going to come your way this week that will give you a major inspiration to jump the gun and do something you have been fearing. This could literally be a dream you have at night that delivers this vision or it could somehow pop up as a message from a strange circumstance. Whichever it is, pay attention!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You have your friends and for that, hoorah! Yes, this week won’t be one of those weeks when you will get too many rewards from love, as that subject matter will seem like a rock at the bottom of the sea. So, instead of waiting for things to move on that front, take initiative to just have fun in other areas of your life that you know can turn that frown upside down.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Finally, something major is coming your way that will make you feel like the queen of the universe, as respect and accolades will stream your way. However, just because you get the acknowledgement you deserve, won’t mean it’ll be all peaches and cream. As it goes, it’s those people who are genuinely there for you during the ups and downs that can be trusted.

The Secret To Marrying A Celebrity Is …

A new study found that it wasn’t beauty, fortune, or box office success that attracted movie stars to their mates. It was similar educational backgrounds. Researchers found that celebrities tended to marry partners who had the same amount of education as them. For example, neither Brad Pitt nor Angelina Jolie have a college degree and look how well things are going for them. Sure, they’re not married — at least we don’t think so — but they might as well be with that tribe of children. If landing a movie star is not on your “to-do” list, that’s OK too. Scientists speculate that these findings apply to us regular folks as well. We should be looking to marry someone who is our equal in the education department. If things don’t work out with me and Jason Segel, that means I’ll be looking for a man who has a college degree in theater. I’m so screwed. [Live Science] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: Love Me, Love My Period

Jeff and I came back to my place after dinner to find my male roommate and some of his buddies sitting on the couch. He was angry because he just got laid off. He was drunk. In general he was a big a**hole. Keep reading »
