Everyone gets stuck in the same routine on the weekends. Drink, drank, drunk. From frat parties to the bar, the whole thing can get a little tiresome. Here's the bottom line: Parties are great. Parties with a theme? Even better. Here are the top ten party themes to throw or participate in.
(Girl, bringing a drink back to a table.) Guy: Whad'ya get? Girl: It's a gimlet. Guy: Oh. We usually freeze those. Or put them in the gravy.
I was living at home for the summer and trying my damdest to survive. All of my friends were either still abroad or doing the internship thing in New York, so I had no one to hang out with besides my parents. And oftentimes they wouldn't even hang out with me. So I did what any other bored 21-year-old would do - I got a boyfriend.
Thanks to the Snuggie and its family of unnecessary-but-ridiculously-popular-useless-items, get rich quick schemes are appearing everywhere. Potheads in dorm rooms all over the country swear that their invention is the “next big thing” and have no idea how the country has functioned thus far without the “Condomizer 3000” which dispenses condoms 1 at a time like PEZ.
The final weeks of my entire college career are wrapping themselves up quickly. Wasn't it just yesterday when I was sitting in my first boys dorm room, trying to decide what I was going to do with all of these brand new opportunities? Wasn't it just yesterday when I was eating Cheez-its for dinner, and pulling my first all nighter? Wasn't it just yesterday when I slapped my first bag?
There has been a lot of relationship news this week, and for once it's not ALL about Sandra/Jesse and Elin/Tiger. I can't tell you how relieved I am to read stories about other celebs!00 Not that I wanted to hear about Tiki Barber cheating on his pregnant (with twins) wife with an NBC intern.... in her dorm room. What is wrong with these men?!
I can say with 100% certainty that the people behind KFC's new Double Down - bacon and cheese smashed between two pieces of fried chicken - smoke a lot of pot. And I can say with 1000% certainty the the people who will order this do the same.
Traditionally, many universities offer an array of courses under the department of Women’s Studies. As an acceptable area of study, it is a bit confusing why its counterpart, Men’s Studies, is not more prevalent. Although it does exist, its main focus is typically on social construction of masculinity. This week, New York’s Wagner College announced the new “Foundation for Male Studies” to supplement what Men’s Studies is lacking.

Well, that was fast. Nike debuted Tiger Woods' ad this morning, and just hours later, people are already uploading plenty of remix fodder. The original Woods ad has already stirred up controversy -- it features a silent Woods gazing at the camera while the voice of his late father Earl does the talking. Whether you found it creepy or touching, we've rounded up some of the funniest remixed commercial videos.
So Bristol Palin's got a new PSA out there reminding young teens to think before they get nakey. In it she asks a lot of questions, which prompted some questions of our own:
Yesterday was a very sad day for college students around the globe. Thomas Angove, inventor of boxed wine, died at the age of 92. Was it a coincidence that he chose Boxed Wine Wednesday to make his departure? I think not. The man was devoted to his life's work until the end.

In light of the recent engagement of mesh-shirt-wearing, Twitter-obsessed Michael Lohan and former Jon Gosselin flame Kate Majors (the chick who quit her job at Star Magazine because she had fallen in love with the deadbeat dad), we are forced to wonder: could Kate Major be in the Guinness Book for World Records for having the worst taste in men on this planet?
Would You Rather date a beautiful boy who had a condition that made his teeth fall out and never grow back OR a gorgeous guy who could never grow a strand of hair anywhere on his body?
Last fall, I raced back to my dorm every Wednesday night to join in the "Glee" weekly viewing party in my friend’s room. Although we would regularly hang out and watch television, and at least sit and later discuss our other favorite shows, we would all drop whatever we were doing (even if it was a 12-page paper due the next day) and set aside special time to get together to watch the sensation that is “Glee.”

Confession: It was the week before Spring Break, I was running low on groceries and didn't think it was worthwhile to go shopping so close to leaving. One of my roommates is a passive-aggressive, annoying bitch and, luckily, she also happens to be a compulsive food hoarder.
LiLo's fallen and she's fallen hard. First her acting career, then her love life, and now her popularity. While she hasn't had a real movie since Mean Girls and, as such, no real income, Lindsay has been bar hopping to score some cash. But even that isn't bringing in the dough anymore. In fact, it is rumored that Snooki is now making more per appearance than Ms. Lohan herself.
The sun and I have been having an ongoing battle for as long as I can remember. I'm all, like, "please make me so brown that no one can tell my original race," and the sun is all, like, "I'm going to fry you until people mistake you for an over-sized lobster." (I should also mention at this point that I was born with claws and a meaty tail.)
I am currently going through my most difficult breakup yet in college: my relationship with Spring Break has ended. This was the first year I went away for the week, and I must say I'm appalled that anyone expects me to just come back to campus and start going to class and (gasp) STUDYING. Can't I at least get a week of mourning, people!?
For the longest time, Cosmo was my bible of choice. It helped me sustain my reputation as all-knowing sex goddess among my circle of friends in high school (nevermind the fact that I didn’t even have my first kiss until the end of my sophomore year…of college).
I'd like to take this opportunity to give a big "welcome back!" to Gossip Girl's former glory. Maybe it's because last night's episode was going up against the NCAA National Championship game, but those writers pulled out all the stops and it was good. No, it was really effing good. It had more ups and downs than the game and it even brought me to tears at one point.

Obviously, Miley Cyrus's life is taking a different course, and at 17, she is moving into her very own house! It is about time; I'm sure Liam is getting fed up with sleeping on the couch and listening to Billy Ray strum along on his guitar.
After weeks of nail biting games, on-the-buzzer wins, bracket disappointment (I was losing to my 11-year-old cousin before the Elite 8 even started) and a lot of weeknight drinking, the NCAA National Championship game is finally here. Which means one more night of intense beer drinking while my guy friends talk sh*t to each other.
• What sorts of crazy is MJ's doctor spewing now!? • Donald Trump defends cheating bastards. • 8 signs he's a keeper. • Brody Jenner chose her over me?! Waaaah (Snooki voice) • 10 perfect black bags under $100 • Tiger Woods is committed to his marriage. For real this time.
I always knew I had an addictive personality. To be fair, though, for awhile I thought that meant that other people were addicted to my personality: my sense of humor, my charming ways, my gift giving skills... But then I got to college, smoked my first cigarette outside of a frat party...
Everyone's got a place in their heart and closet for American Apparel. Lord knows about 60% of my tshirt drawer is made up of their deliciously well worn v-necks. And who doesn't love those amazing dresses that go 12 ways? But everyone who's ever been into an American Apparel store has also noticed the total ridiculousness that fills their overstuffed racks.
It was one of the first warm nights in a long time and everyone on campus was throwing impromptu house parties. I knew I'd be walking all over campus, so I ditched my plans for a dress and heels and opted for jeans and flip flops instead. I met up with some of the girls in my sorority and we headed out to one of the many parties of the night.
ust like she does every Friday, my best friend sent out an email full of the ridiculous, hilarious, and disturbing things she found online that week. And there was one link in it that I just had to share. The story is this: a third grade teacher found some papers left on the floor of her classroom. She picked them up. And what did she find? A list of 90 types of bitches. Written by a third grader.
Another week, another skank coming out of Jesse James/Tiger Woods' bedrooms. My god, when is it going to end?! Hopefully most of this news is review for you all by now considering we've been covering the same stories for weeks now.
I don't celebrate Easter, so I'm not 100% sure what the bunny is all about. But he's not supposed to eat puppies and instill fear in children (and fully grown website editors) around the world, right?
Part of me wants to hate this, to write it off as yet another stereotypical portrayal of women by loser guys trying to make a funny YouTube video. But another part, a larger and less feminist part that might still be drunk from last night, can't stop laughing.
