A few of us have shared our plans for New Year’s Eve, just a couple nights away (I’m wearing this, and having a small dinner with a few friends and then hitting our favorite, out-of-the way dive bar). Now it’s your turn to share your plans. Whether you’re staying in, heading to a cozy cabin with friends, having a big blowout, enjoying an intimate gathering, having a sex marathon, throwing a girls-only slumber party, or simply going to bed early and skipping the occasion altogether, we want to hear about it. And don’t forget to tell us what you’re planning to wear, too! That’s half the fun, after all. Keep reading »
I’m still contemplating my New Year’s resolutions. I could make a list and make it boring, the theme being fix all the stuff I could do better. You know, like save more, scrub the toilet with greater vigor, and practice yoga daily. Or I could focus on all the dreams I’d like to accomplish — finishing my novel, traveling to Thailand, winning the lottery. Some people keep it simple with one resolution, and some people think the whole idea of resolutions is ridiculous. So, are you coming up with resolutions for 2011? What are they? Share them in the comments. Keep reading »
Make it stop—I have an image in my head of Gwyneth Paltrow and hubby Chris Martin of Coldplay on a stage, doing a mash-up of “Viva La Vida” and “Eff You” for screaming fans. Rumor has it that the two will be performing together, on New Year’s Eve no less, at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. The bash for 2,500 revelers supposedly cost more than $25 million, and Jay-Z is allegedly going to be performing with Beyoncé as well. Maybe the four of them could all get on stage and do an ode to ABBA? Just an idea. [NY Post] Keep reading »
Do you know anyone who keeps their New Year’s resolutions? Or even remembers them after January 15? I sure don’t. Most of us vow to lose weight, quit drinking, or cut up those credit cards. But some of us make relationship-related resolutions, and that’s what we’re here to talk about. After the jump are four resolutions. One of the four is valid; the other three are less so. Let’s see if you can tell which is which. I bet you can… Keep reading »
Have a great time partying it up this New Year’s Eve. You won’t see me there.
Instead of getting wildly drunk and making out with a random stranger, I’m going to do what I’ve done for the last four years: I’m skipping New Year’s.
There will be no wild parties with fireworks inside (yes, something that actually happened at one of my New Year’s Eve parties several years ago, and no, it wasn’t a good idea), I’ve taken to sharing the holiday ensconced in the woods with one of my close friends. Keep reading »
Last night, while out to dinner with friends, my phone rang—a rare occurrence in a world where phones are amazing for organizing schedules and arranging text messages into adorable dialogue bubbles, but aren’t so hot at providing a clear pathway for two people to talk. I recognized the area code immediately, though I had deleted the caller’s name in a huff a few days before—it was Scruffy Beard. I hadn’t heard from him in almost two weeks, since he sent me a lame “see you around” text the day after we had sex and he darted out the door 20 minutes after, throwing the condom in the trash.
I resisted the urge to listen to his voicemail message all the way through dinner. But as I left the restaurant, I just had to know what he said. Keep reading »
I’ve had a few one-night stands in my life. Don’t look so surprised! But I have never had a one-night stand on New Year’s Eve, which, according to a study conducted by “intimacy” products manufacturer Wet (creative naming!), is the night the majority of women would have one. According to the study, 33 percent of women surveyed said they’d be more likely to have a one-nighter on New Year’s Eve than any other day. But why? Is it because they’re feeling more horny as the clock ticks down to midnight? More depressed and looking to soak up their sadness in the warm embrace of a stranger? More, well, drunk? Though I’ve never had a one-night stand on New Year’s Eve, I can’t write the holiday off as a total dud for my sex and love life — I met my ex-fiance at a New Year’s Eve party and we got engaged on New Year’s Eve four years later. If only he could have waited three and a half more months to dump me — we could have made New Year’s our break-up anniversary too! Ahh, well.
So, what about you, Frisky readers — whether you’ve had a one-night stand(s) before or not, would you be most likely to have one on New Year’s? Have you? [Wet via Lemondrop] Keep reading »
“I can’t do any celebrities. I need normal folks. I’m officially done [with Hollywood guys]. It was on my bucket list. Maybe I can check that one off my list. I don’t like the red carpet scene. I like to stay at home and watch movies. I’ll just take a nice guy.”
—Jenny McCarthy tells Ryan Seacrest that, in the wake of her breakup from Jim Carrey, she is looking for a nice, normal dude to make out with on New Year’s Eve. Any volunteers? [People] Keep reading »
Before you go making your list of resolutions for 2011, make sure you aren’t setting yourself up for failure. Some resolutions, after all, are just begging to be broken by February. After the jump, 10 resolutions you’d be wise NOT to make this year. Keep reading »
