Weekly Wrap Up: Happy Fat Pants Week!


This week was a biggie and boy am I glad I finally roused myself from my food coma to experience it. We returned from a glorious, relaxing holiday break (only to come face to face with the worst week of school EVER); we celebrated World Aids Day and Britney Spears’ birthday.  It also became officially acceptable to start decorating for the Holidays, making wishlists, and breaking out the Mariah Carey Christmas album. Hollerrrr.

We’ve had some highlights of our own this week, and we’re pretty sure they’re all worth checking out.  So let’s do that, shall we? And when you’re all donzo, don’t study. That’s boring! Instead, you should probably blog for a little while.  Trust us, this is one skill that will serve you better than a lot of the things you learn in the classroom.

Something else that’ll serve you well?  Really shiny lips.  I’m pretty sure there’s some kind of law of physics that states that shiny things attract attention.  And by attention, I mean every boy is going to want to kiss you.

Think your love life is crazy?  We’re pretty sure one of our readers has it worse.  Here’s what Tuffy Luv has to say about her predicament.

There is no know cure for AIDS, but there are steps you can take to make a difference.  In the spirit of World Aids Day, we encourage you to try some of these suggestions.

Apparently being in love is healthy…despite the fact that you’re probs binging on wings with your boyf. But if living longer isn’t worth dealing with that a-hole you’ve been seeing, at least break his heart gently.

B. Spears turned 29 this week!  I wish we could celebrate in Britney fashion, but I’m not willing to part with our precious hair.  So instead, I will dance around on my bed to a playlist of her top hits.

As the year comes to an end, we’re trying to think of New Years resolutions.  These celebs make for excellent inspiration.

Who wants to look like Jessica Alba?  The answer: everyone.  Here’s how you can cop this lovely lady’s signature style on a budget.

And if this week wasn’t already wild enough, one of our writers attended the coolest event ever.  Check out the deetz between the sheets…you won’t want to miss this.
