I’ll say it right out: I was an early Taylor Swift adopter. I liked her from the first song of hers I heard on the radio—on the country station, which is where she started. It was a ballad called “Tim McGraw,” and to me, it captured perfectly the poignancy of love found and then lost. It was hard to believe the writer was only 16 years old.
The most recent issue of Marie Claire magazine featured an interview with Anastasia Danias, the president of the NFL. She talked about gender differences in management styles: "I think one of the mistakes that many women make, and one that I made early on in my career, is a tendency to be apologetic. I can't tell you how many women come into my office and say, 'I'm sorry to bother you with this.'"
Via Buzzfeed, Psychology Today has come up with this map of where "missed connections" occur on Craigslist—those entries that say, essentially, "I saw you from across a crowded room and didn't approach, but I think you're cute, and now I hope you're on Craigslist looking for me, too." The magazine broke down the most-common locations for each state—based on the 100 most-recent ads—and, well, the results for Pennsylvania are kind of hilarious:Click to look closer, but yeah: Pennsylvanians are constantly finding and losing the love of their life at … the convenience store. (My home state of Kansas was McDonalds,
Do you know anyone who is up-dating? (Or updating?) Do you know what up-dating is? Because we just can’t help ourselves from making up new words and pretending that things are new trends or phenomena when they’ve actually been around forever, enter up-dating—when someone dates or marries someone “out of their league."
The Philadelphia Inquirer has awarded former Flyers goalie and current self-help guru Bernie Parent 700 seemingly unedited words every two weeks to ruminate on whatever he wants. Unfortunately, he blew his Valentine's Day topic prematurely on his February 1st column "Unleash your hidden wolf on Valentine's Day," in which he advised his readers to "Stay horny, my friends." So yesterday, in his hotly-anticipated V-Day piece "Enrich and nourish the mind, body and soul will follow," Bernie had trouble figuring out exactly what he wanted to say.Part I. "It is imperative to make clear the difference between the feeling of loneliness and
If the Twitter Diet isn’t working for you, or your fingers are tired from all that tweeting, maybe you should try the MILF Diet.Yes. It’s a real thing. Or at least, author Jessica Porter, a macrobiotic chef, cooking instructor and hypnotist (I’m not sure how that last title fits in either), wants us to believe so.
A New York Times story today discusses how the naughty masterpiece Fifty Shades of Grey has been very, very good to the lingerie industry, with a greater variety of options now available in high-end and "traditional" stores than before. That's even true here in Philadelphia:Coeur, a lingerie shop off Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia’s Center City district, now stocks not only high-end underwear from European brands like La Perla and PrimaDonna but (in a designated room) Ben Wa balls, handcuffs and whips.Which raises the question: How does one gain access to the "handcuffs and whips" room at Coeur? Do you just
Valentine’s Day sucks. If you’re in a relationship, it’s a day filled with bad, boxed chocolate, roadside roses, cheap cards, and pajamagrams. (Actually anything from Philly Poster Erica Palan’s bad gift ideas.) Going out to dinner? Prepare to join the cattle call of over-scheduled seating and overpriced prix fixe, which, invariably, ends with a heart-shaped, molten chocolate cake. If you’re not in a relationship, you’re made to feel bad through the onslaught of TV commercials. And while office mates avoid asking you about your V-Day plans, they insist on showing you their just-delivered pajamagrams. You could always go out to a movie, but then it’s possible that the movie couple will a) end up together or b) remain alive.
