Am I a Disposable Clothing Addict?

I work in the health care industry and I work every Sunday.  I have to be to work by 7am so I get to drive through my quiet city and listen to the radio at 6am.  There is a radio program that I listen to during the drive.  I found the program last Sunday to be quite interesting.  It was all about how the trend in the United States is to buy cheaply made clothes at cheaper prices.  People are not buying well made clothes that will last several years.  This is due to the fastly changing styles and trends in clothing.  People also want to buy cheaper clothing...more

Angelina Jolie, The Chosen One, and Adventures in the Loo

I've adopted so many bathroom stalls in my lifetime I'm like the Angelina Jolie of public restrooms. I'm sure I can manage to look hot and wholesome in one fell swoop, and apart from the height difference we're practically twins right? ....right? So maybe I have a bit more cellulite than she does, and maybe the boobage isn't quite so perky....more

We ARE Pregnant: Why Mila Kunis Is Wrong

When Mila Kunis made her rant about men with pregnant mates saying “we are pregnant,” I heard a collective cheer from mothers and mothers-to-be from every end of the universe.

Full Moon AND Friday the 13th AND Mercury Retrograde? Oh No!

The Sagittarius Moon will be fully lit by the Sun in the opposite sign Gemini – very dramatic, but nothing to fear.  And “Triskaidekaphobia” is just that,  a phobia. Image: Shutterstock ...more

Are My Facebook Posts Obnoxious?

The messages that started this post were a few of the comments I received. I know most of them were meant to be sarcastic because only my family, where sarcasm is a dominant gene, and friends, whom if not connoisseurs of sarcasm don't last long, are my friends on Facebook. So I know they were just teasing... sort of... kind of... right? Or are they nicely, with humor, trying to tell me something else? Does posting this kind of thing make me obnoxious? Is it offensive? Does it mean that I'm unfeeling or out of touch? Am I a show-off and just plain nasty? ...more
