And this week I learn how easy it is to write about music I’m crazy obsessed with. I was so beyond-words excited about the new releases this week that I basically wanted to tell you about every song, transcribe all the lyrics, and somehow hum the tunes onto the computer screen so that you’d get the full effect. But I tried to restrain myself a little bit.
Sam Ronson wants a restraining order from crazy Lindsay. Need an excuse? Try the economy. What is the most stressful moment of a relationship? Katy Perry shares her thoughts on marriage. What's your hangover cure? Victoria Beckham is too busy for Ugly Betty. Get that perfect sunkissed look for Spring.
Vermont just became the fourth U.S. state to legalize gay marriage, and that makes me really happy. When California passed the law permitting gay couples to marry last year, tons of couples, like Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi (cutest couple EVER), tied the knot.
I've started preparing for my post graduation depression/emo stage. I've bought the tissue boxes and I've prepared the soundtrack (Seasons of Love on repeat). But I also made a proactive step of creating a list of things that I know I absolutely won't miss- that way when I'm putting on my fifth layer of black eyeliner and tattooing tears on my face I'll remember that there were some bad things about college.
Like every Thursday night (or Monday…or Tuesday…or any day, really), you finish your reading for the night, eat a little dinner and start the pre-party for another night at the bar. You mix a few drinks before you head out in attempts to get a good buzz going.
I'm a Michigan fan to my core, but hard as I tried to root for anyone but Michigan State in Final Four, I couldn't control my yelps/fist pumps as those Spartans sunk basket after basket. And I couldn't fight the desire to head downtown to Detroit to celebrate after the fact. I felt like I was in the twilight zone - rooting for State AND hanging out in Detroit?
I love vitaminwater. It's yummy, and the fact that it's loaded with vitamins makes me feel like I'm doing something good for my body whenever I drink it. However, what I don't love so much is that the sugar in it that makes it taste so good also makes it a little high in calories.
It was Sunday night, which means a spread of Diet Root Beer, a chopped green apple, a turkey sandwich and my TV tuned to VH1's Tough Love. Last night we saw Steve challenge the girls to be low maintenance.
(Two guys, wearing baseball caps, jeans and ties.) Guy 1: I love your tie, man. I can't get knots like that. It never works for me. Guy 2: Thanks. Guy 1: I'm really jealous, dude. I wish I could be you. Or at least I wish we were better friends.
True fact: I went years without cable. And I never complained. But, as soon as I was old enough to babysit, I would put the kids to bed and turn on the TV and embrace the goodness of TLC. Those were the glory days of The Learning Channel, because it's gone downhill since then.
Dear PMS: Why? Just why? Who do you think you are? I mean really. You come around once a month like that annoying friend you don't really want to hear from, yet every month, without fail, she asks you for plans and you feel sort of obligated.
A hostage standoff leads to Tragedy Madonna remains committed to Malawi community. Hard-to-find beauty products are a click away. 10 things you don't wanna find at your guy's house. Another Heidi Montag song leaked! Get Miley Cyrus's look for under $100.
I'm fairly confident that if it weren't for coffee, I'd never make it to Friday. Sure, Dr. Hyman thinks it's easy to give it up, but I just don't know. I basically keep the coffee maker next to my bed - if I can't get up without it, how does that man expect me to get through the day?!
Let's go waaay back (to 2002) to the release of Bend it Like Beckham, when JRM got his first big acting break. He starred as Joe, the Irish soccer (okay, football) coach who quickly fell for his culturally-conflicted student, Jess. I loved this movie for two reasons: first, because it showcased Keira Knightley during her awkward stage before she was really famous, and second, because JRM totally stole the show.
Today, Demi Moore helped to save a suicidal woman via Twitter. A distressed woman, known on Twitter as Sandieguy, chose to update her followers with her suicide plans. After a long series of updates such as, "hurting", "does anyone care?", and "thinking about killing myself"
I've heard of girls wearing their hearts on their sleeves, but this is the first I've seen of wearing their vaginas on their dresses. WTF? Seriously, you have to see this.
Any shared activity among a couple is likely to bring that couple closer together. Hobbies such as painting, gardening, cooking a meal together, or taking a weekly jog together could all benefit romantic relationships. This rule idea applies to couples both in and out of the bedroom where, ironically enough, Sadomasochistic (S&M) type of activities are shown to promote bonding.
I once went home with a guy who sniffed his sheets before throwing me down and taking advantage of me. Even worse, once he threw me down to take advantage of me, he asked me if I thought his sheets smelled funny. Really? Is that supposed to get me in the mood?
Did you know that cases of Chlamydia in the U.S. have increased by 41% in the past 10 years? And that is only reported cases. Experts estimate that the true number of men and women with Chlamydia is actually double the amount reported each year.
Wednesdays are rough. Sure, you are halfway through the week, but you still have two more loooong days before the weekend. Barf.
Poor students thought they had gotten in. GOT YA!!
Ooh, the anticipation! Some of my most-liked bands are back with new releases this week. And considering I’m already a fan of them, they all have a lot to live up to. So, will they make me remember why I love them so much or will they crush my hopes?
• A pizza vending machine? Mama likey.
• Insulated Hopside Down beer glasses are cool!?
• Queen Latifah's being sued by former makeup artists.
• Sail through your next presentation w/o stage fright.
• Re-create America Ferrera's Kid's Choice glam.
• Are clear leggings going to be the next big trend?
• Whitney Port reveals that she hated the Twilight movie. And we care, why?
ollege offers so many opportunities and I regret not taking advantage of more of them. I'm not referring to visiting lectures from world renowned microbiologists or Teach For America open houses.
Got a question for Tuffita? Email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to be featured in her column every Tuesday! Ask it all.
The week from hell is finally over. Three exams, a paper and a group presentation (though “group” is a loose term since you pretty much did the entire thing) down, now 5 shots and a few hours of dancing to go.
Oh the things Lady Gaga has to do for fame...
I confess... I've missed the past couple weeks' worth of new GG episodes. First of all, I've been crazy busy and can't even keep my days straight....
San Jose rocked by an earthquake, Josh Hartnett rocked by stomach pains and much more.
When you see a perfectly sculpted star on the cover of a magazine, don't let yourself be fooled. They may look like they pray to the treadmill gods each day, but they are also just as human as we are.
I'm not really sure who these anchor people are (or what this "network" is), but it's the only video I could find that showed the story of one middle school teacher who got drunk and did a little naughty dance with her students.
April Fool's Day is just days away, which means there is little time to plan some much needed pranks. We've all got important things like midterms, meetings, internships, and beer pong tournaments to catch up on, but that's no excuse.
