Put Down That Burger

There’s nothing I enjoy more when I’m drunk than stopping by McDonald’s on the way home — the only time I go to Mickey D’s, by the way — and getting myself some chicken nuggets. Something about the greasiness and chickenness and saltiness just hits the drunken spot!

But it turns out I’m doing drunk-snacks all wrong. Keep reading »

How To Ring In The New Year Like Bridget Jones

New Year’s Eve is not for everybody. In fact, some of us find it downright silly. Pointy hats covered in glitter? Drunk people on every corner? Dodging a kiss from your college roommate’s cousin’s best friend at midnight? No thanks! It’s okay if you ring in 2014 from the comfort of your own couch — and we’re here to show you how.

First up, here’s how to ring in the new year in the style of our favorite (or shall I say favourite) single lady in existence, Bridget Jones!  Keep reading »

I Cannot Handle How Much An Applebee’s New Year’s Eve Cost

I Cannot Handle How Much An Applebee’s New Year’s Eve Cost

An ultra-planned New Year’s Eve is rarely a perfectly smooth experience,* to say the least, what with wayward dates, freezing temps, and wildly crowded bars. But one restaurant franchise thinks you will be willing to spend an exorbitant amount of attending its NYE party because obviously, it is probably your best–if not only–bet. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Applebee’s “Night To Remember” at its Times Square location in New York City. Read more on The Gloss …

“I do not currently have a scale, because as I’ve said before, getting on a scale is like asking Dick Cheney to give you a sense of your own self-worth… I can still get my jeans on, for one reason: I wear forgiving pants. The world is too hard as it is, without letting your pants have an opinion on how you are doing. I struggle with enough self-esteem issues without letting my jeans get in on the act.

So please join me in not starting a diet January 1st.

It’s really okay, though, to have (or pray for) an awakening around your body. It’s okay to stop hitting the snooze button, and pay attention to what makes you feel great about yourself, one meal at a time. It’s an inside job. If you are not okay with yourself at 185, you will not be okay at 150, or even 135. The self-respect and serenity you long for is not out there. It’s within. I hate that. I resent that more than I can say. But it’s true.”

– Anne Lamott, one of my favorite writers, just posted a refreshingly honest and inspiring manifesto against new year’s dieting on her Facebook page. Read the whole thing here. And if you do decide to abandon your diet resolutions (hear, hear!), don’t worry, we’ve got a list of 101 alternative resolutions, none of which require a gym membership, measuring tape, or moratorium on carbs.
