Take charge of your cell phone, take charge of your life

The cell phone has ruined dating.  I mean, even Zach Morris used his brick to dupe girls with acts of douchebaggery…very, very pretty douchbaggery, but douchebaggery none-the-less.  I’d almost welcome a phonecall ruse at this point, however…at least it’s a call.  The real culprit, as cellphones are less for emergencies and more a mobile device,...

Victoria’s Secret recently held an open casting call in Chicago for their next runway star.  I couldn’t go because I was…busy (read: hungover and 15 lbs heavier than I would want to be when auditioning for Victoria’s Secret)  I can’t really give accurate critiques based on the photos that I saw, because I’m not a...

Don't steal boyfriends -- get your own Gavin Rossdale

(Photo Credit: AP) I have a dangerous attraction to very successful, charming men.  You know, the type of guy with swarms of women actively clamoring for his attention.  It’s not that I’m insecure about my Number One status.  I can match my mate in wits and talent.  I look good on his arm.  I’m just...

Shopping for Boys: The World of Online Dating

I’m a very busy girl.  Let me rephrase that.  I’m a very, very busy girl.  I do my banking online, pay my bills online, keep up with friends online and shop for clothes online.  It just seems appropriate that I should give online dating a whirl. I like knowing that I will have a guaranteed... Read more »
