We’re celebrating The Frisky’s 5th birthday this week (wooohooo!), and as part of the grand celebration we’re looking back on some of our favorite outfits, reader emails, and lessons we’ve learned from the past half-decade. For my contribution, I thought I’d condense some of our most beloved and/or underrated posts into haiku form. Read on for a little poetry action, and click the links within each haiku to read the full posts that inspired them! Keep reading »

Her 10 Best: Saoirse Ronan

Saoirse Ronan (pronounced “Sir-sha”) first came to our attention as conniving young Briony Tallis in the amazing 2007 film adaptation of “Atonement.” She followed that up by appearing as murder victim Susie in “The Lovely Bones” and as the titular bad-ass young assassin in “Hanna.” For an 18-year-old, she’s certainly accomplished a lot.

Her latest film is “The Host,” a sci-fi thriller about an alien invasion. Saoirse plays Melanie Stryder, a young woman whose body has been invaded by an alien “soul,” who must find and protect her loved ones. In short, we’re seeing it.

Above, we take a look back at some of Saoirse’s best fashion moments.

For the last five years (longer, if you include the six months I worked on the site before we actually launched), I’ve been editing The Frisky. But I’ve also done quite a bit of writing for the site, particularly about sex and relationships. In addition to humorously, I hope, commenting on the state of dating and male and female behavior (“10 Types Of Emotional Wheelchairs” remains a favorite of mine), I have shared a whole heck of a lot about my own personal life. My intent was always to shed some sort of light on universal experiences through the lens of my own. I think I was often fairly successful at it — and it certainly has been both fun and cathartic for me — but I also made some mistakes that informed how I write about my personal life now. Here are some lessons I’ve learned over the last five years blogging about my personal life for The Frisky. Keep reading »

When I was eight, pretty much all I cared about in life was My Garbage Pail Kids collection and how I could get my hands on more Big Stuff Oreos. I was allowed to have one every day with lunch, which was the equivalent of about four regular Oreos, but still, that wasn’t enough for me. In my mission to get more Big Stuffs, I befriended a girl in the neighborhood because her mom always kept them in the house. We had nothing else in common besides our love of the giant, creme filled cookies. It was a social sacrifice I was willing to make. Clearly, if I had to choose, I was, and still am, a creme over cookie person — though as Oreo is reminding us with their newest campaign, there is no wrong answer. (Check out their new site — and declare your loyalty — here.)

Anyway, when they discontinued the Big Stuffs in 1991, and I had to revert to eating a fistful of Double Stuff Oreos, I’ll admit, I went through a period of mourning. I still hold out hope that they’ll bring them back. I even joined the Facebook group in support. It’s OK to dream. But until then, I’ve been busy concocting some other kinds of Oreo inventions that would make me just as happy as the return of Big Stuffs. Maybe. Keep reading »

Frisky Reader Email
This Frisky reader email will make you cry. Read More »

Something most people don’t know about me is that I am anal as hell about my email. My inbox looks like a perfectly organized sock drawer. Everything is matched, color-coded, filed and labeled. If only my sock drawer looked like my inbox, my life would probably be perfect. But my sock drawer is a disaster. Maybe I’m so fastidious about my inbox because I had a boss who would go off on me if I ever lost an email. Out of fear of her wrath, I got into the habit of saving every email.

Over my last four years at TheFrisky, I have acquired 47 unique nesting labels. I know because I just counted. One of them — the most special to me — is “Reader Emails,” color-coded olive green. I say that this file is the most special to me because it reminds me of what’s important about my job: all of you. I’m not just being an earnest cheeseball either. I promise. The internet is interesting in the sense that there is so much anonymous interaction taking place in a public forum that it’s easy to lose touch with the personal aspect of my job. And I think it’s important to be reminded. So, seriously, thank you to anyone who’s ever taken the time to send us an email.  In honor of The Frisky’s 5th birthday, I went back through the “Reader Email” archives and pulled a few of my all-time favorites.  Keep reading »

Drunk Emailing

This Sunday is St. Patrick’s Day, a holiday which holds many different meanings for different religious and ethnic groups, but for many young people, it’s generally interpreted as “The Day We All Get Super Drunk At Noon.” And so, in the spirit of overindulgence, I thought I’d take a moment to ask the rest of The Frisky staff about their random drunk talents — the things we can’t do (or at least can’t do very well) sober, but we excel at after a few martinis. Check out our list after the jump, and please share your own drunk skills in the comments! Keep reading »
