Jan 18th 2010 1:17AM Get over it. If the models you see in these mags disturb you so much, don't buy them! I stopped buying those magazines when I was around 20, after realizing how frivolous and shallow they all are. It's not just a matter of using a size 12 instead of a size 0 model. The models you usually see are also very tall, even taller than the average man. What next? Demand that they use shorter models b/c they make the rest of us feel bad about being shorter? Demand they stop airbrushing the models? How about demand they don't picture any models or celebrities that have had any kind of plastic surgery or cosmetic procedure, b/c they are presenting a false, unrealistic aesthetic? Don't like the way they do things, let them know by not buying the garbage.
Oct 18th 2009 7:17PM I agree. I never finish the regular size cans before it goes warm and/or flat. I end up wasting a lot.
Sep 22nd 2009 12:03AM I don't listen to Taylor Swift's music. In fact, I wouldn't recognize any of her songs, so it's not like I'm some die-hard fan, but I must say she is handling this very well. She is very young but so far seems to have tons of class and maturity. The DJ comes off as a complete moron. That last question he was going to ask showed his level of intelligence. He pushed it too far to ask such a stupid question, "Do you think he has a few screws loose?" As if she would say "yes," even if she thought so. She obviously has too much class for that, yet he blew his interview w/ trying to ask such a dumb question. Clearly he was trying to get her to bad mouth Kanye, but she stood her ground and is too smart to sink to that level.
Sep 21st 2009 11:08PM "The medical examiner found no abuse." What did the medical examiner do to determine that? I'll bet whatever the examiner did and asked to make this determination was traumatic in itself. These children are no doubt scarred by this experience. It's more than just being away from their parents for a month. Incredible.
Sep 21st 2009 10:44PM I wonder how the experience of being taken away from their parents like that will affect the children as they grow up. Outrageous beyond words.
Jul 16th 2008 1:37PM Thanks for the recap! I missed the last two shows, and I love this show. I stopped watching reality TV about 2 episodes into the 2nd season of Survivor. The ugly personalities and back stabbing was enough for me. But this show is cool. Like you said, it's fun to see the contestants' reactions to being in Japanese culture, and it is a little like being there yourself. Japan is so awesome, partly b/c it's so different, but in a good, interesting way. Great observation about Meaghan strutting around in the towel, too. Pathetic!! (not to mention transparent)
Jun 24th 2008 5:34PM If he truly did throw a fit, then that is pathetic. Stars complain about the paparazzi, but when it suits them, they want everyone to know who they are. What a bunch of self-entitled whiners. The world would be better off w/o them. I think I can manage to go on with my life if "24" ceased exist.
Jun 24th 2008 5:18PM I guess we can learn something from them. Good for them. However, I can't save 30% of my income when the largest chunk of purchases on my credit card is gasoline.
Jun 13th 2008 5:39PM Comment # 1: I completely agree with your assessment of this article. That eyelet dress is far too casual, and it's cute, it actually looks like something a little girl would wear. As for the men's shirt recommended--that guy looks like he just rolled out of bed. That shirt is also too casual for a wedding. It would look like you didn't really care.
Also, the article is full of "what not to wear," then you click on the suggestion, only to find it's exactly the type of thing you are not supposed to wear. And that ridiculous $45 headband? And then the author talks about how buying a new dress "won't break the bank," but when you click on it, the dress suggested is $300, paired with shoes that are also $300. F--- you!
Jun 13th 2008 5:28PM A "fabulous" polka-dot rainbow toaster?! Gimme a break. The author of this article needs to consult a gift guide herself. People create registries for a reason. Personally, I think registries are tacky, but people expect them, and many guests appreciate not having to think of a gift. However, instead of including a card with the invitation to announce where I was registered, I did not mention it, but told anyone who asked.
One good tip in this article is to give a gift card if everything on the registry is expensive. Also, cash is always appreciated for a couple beginning a new life, especially these days when money is tight.
