American Idol

BY Laurie in Music Stuff

Of course she is too nice to "judge anyone"-she is just so sweet you cant help but love her! And for once the kids did pretty good with their versions of her songs. Unfortunately my favorite "Coat of Many Colors" which always gets me a little verklempt, was sung by my least favorite, Kristy lee,  and it did not wow. ... Read More

Walk this way

BY Laurie in Feminizzle

Well hot damn, it’s about time! From years of carrying Band-Aids in my purse, spending ridiculous amounts of money on pedicures and trying to come up with the perfect remedy to heal gnarly bunions and blisters, men will (for one day) grasp the reasoning behind all of my bitching. Walk A Mile In Her Shoes is an organization that will literally make men walk a mile, in heels, to protest sexualized violence against women. The walk educates the public and raises ... Read More

Forget the dems, my vote last night was for Project Runway winner CHRISTIAN SIRIANO. I love him! So glad he won. Fierce.  ... Read More
No matter who you end up voting for, you can't deny there is some serious hatred for Hillary out there, and it's scary. One of our writers sent this post in, and I agree with her. It also made me hungry for a sandwich. --------------------I'm stunned by the amount of offensively sexist anti-Hillary groups that exist on Facebook and their enormous memberships. Regardless of whether one supports her presidential campaign, shouldn't alarm bells go off when a ... Read More
