  • I Have Never Been To The Gyno, Am I Going To Die?

    I Have Never Been To The Gyno, Am I Going To Die?

    I just feel too self-conscious and fragile to have someone dealing with my lady bits which is strange because I never have any problem letting guys down there, haha.

    The CC Weekly Weigh In: Awkward Times at the Gyno

    No matter how you slice it, visiting the gyno is awkward. Not only do you have to expose yourself in the most unflattering way to your doctor (and the nurse who is required to be in there), but you gotta do it while he or she makes small talk from between your legs.

  • Drinking On The Job: Fail

    Drinking On The Job: Fail

    Drinking on the job seems like such an enticing idea. Make the work day a little more bearable, ya know? I know I'd be a hell of a lot friendlier to those jerks taking out books at the campus library if I had a little Ketel One in me.

  • The Weekly Wrap Up: Lame on Friday Night

    The Weekly Wrap Up: Lame on Friday Night

    Fridays kill me. On the one hand I want nothing more than to head to the bar to drink away another long week (and simultaneously avoid creepers), but then I'm so tired I can barely get off the couch.
