Okay, fine, maybe it's slightly early to start gushing about Halloween goodies, but cut me some slack here: I've had my costume planned since June (Winona Ryder at the very end of Heathers), and I started compiling a list of sweet spooky stuff sometime around August. At the top of said list? Two's Company Boo! Boo! Bandages --totally intended for kids but adored by accident-prone adults like me. A 30-pack comes assorted with ghosts, webs, skulls and bats, all of ... Read More

The GirlieGirl Army!

BY Dawn in General

The GirlieGirl Army newsletter is kind of like your friend's older sister who wouldn't be caught dead in fur, knows who the hottest band is before they hit the airwaves, (and maybe even dated the drummer), and scours vintage stores like lunatics. The GirlieGirl Army is a crew of girls, (and guys!), who like cheap couture, pop culture, tasty vegan eats, feminism, and art happenstances. They get the word on what's hot before it hits your favorite blog. Trend ... Read More

This past Sunday I was having a delightful and loungeful morning at my neighborhood cafe. As I was thumbing through the Sunday paper, I nearly choked on my iced coffee when I saw this frightening ad. Ashton-Drake has always made weird old lady type collectibles, but some of them really are just getting out of hand. These 'heavenly handfuls' are totally creepy! Look at the one in red! Like a bad car accident, I couldn't help but take another look. More ... Read More

Palindrones

BY Laurie in General

I know everyone was watching last night and hoping for a complete flop from Mrs. Palin, but over all she did better than expected, but man was she smug! I could not stand all the winking and cutesy attitude, the 'oh boys and gosh darns' and I wish Biden had been a little tougher with her. I felt that he was holding back so as not to seem sexist. In general, I always think the Dems are too nice. I also found her comment about not answering the questions correctly ... Read More

Hoes Got Feelings Too!

BY Callie in General

Last night I was taking a shower with my long-term fuck buddy and he dropped a bomb on me. Roll this way to hear my tale. I liked this guy a lot (hence why I keep him around for two years, can that really be how long its been?) but I was totally cool with both of us seeing other people for two reasons: 1. I was not ready for a full time boo 2. He traveled often and for long periods of time and if I am not ready for a boo I am most defiantly not trying to have ... Read More
