Dear Anonymous Starbucks Baristas,

I never thought that making Starbucks beverages was that complicated. Starbucks is basically fast food.  And I say this as someone who drinks at least one Starbucks beverage every single day of my life.

But apparently there is a lot that baristas think the unwashed masses don’t understand about frothing milk, so: okayThis Valentine’s Day, I don’t have a heterosexual male to buy a Hallmark card and wear uncomfortable lingerie for. So my love letter is to you, Starbucks baristas. Specifically, the baristas who don’t screw up my order Keep reading »

Someone send them a bucket of KFC for Valentine’s Day. [Buzzfeed]

Do Not Want: Grumpy Cat
These nipple tassels don't look very friendly... Read More »

Hate love? So does Grumpy Cat. Which is why she’s the perfect anti-ambassador for Valentine’s Day. I mean, right now, Grumpy Cat is probably organizing her V-Day plan of attack, which likely involves squirelling away into a pile of litter while everyone else is professing their adoration. These Grumpy Cat cookies are made by Whipped Bake Shop in Philadelphia, and each one is lovingly (hatefully?) packaged with the phrases “Love stinks,” “Overrated” and “Dislike.” Whipped also serves up sugar cookies shaped like bacon and eggs, and a “horny for you” set, featuring a tricerotops and a unicorn. And because they’re total pervs, there’s even a “Mustache Rides, Admit 1″ cookie set. [Whipped Bake Shop, $28] Keep reading »

Dear Publicists,

Hello. I get soooo many emails from you. Sooooo many emails that go straight into the trash. Especially around holidays that are considered very Frisky friendly. Valentine’s Day! Yes, I’m well aware that it’s right around the corner, waving at me. Mocking me. I know that it’s your job to pitch products on behalf of your clients. Lots of stuff. Lots and lots of stuff. Stuff that I would never use or care about or write about. But still, you send it. Sometimes, every once in a while, that stuff is GREAT. So, thank you. That pair of jeans that Pacific Sun sent are one of my favorites! And the “Girls” branded Klean Kanteen water bottle is the Christmas present I wanted but didn’t receive.

The rest of the stuff … not so much. I have 12 male masturbators and a stack of New Age love and sex books (titles including Spiritual Lovemaking, Beyond Soul Mates, and I Saw Your Future And He’s Not It) taking up space at my desk. I’m hard pressed to throw out a book, but what do I do with it? I’ve been opening up to pages at random and reading passages to my co-workers. Keep reading »

If you’re the kind of couple who have mutually decided NOT to acknowledge Saint Hallmark’s Day — because of your belief that it’s a consumer-driven pseudo holiday, penchant for rebellion or overall cynical nature — you may often find yourself confused about how to pass the day  that so many others are making such a big fuss about. And you’ll have to pass it with each other since everyone else you know has plans. After the jump, what you’ll need so as not to be disturbed on February 14th, just another day on your calendar.
