Brenda's Got a Baby
I saw The Fighter the other night (which I loved). For those who haven’t seen it, one of the plot points in the film revolves around HBO making a documentary about Dicky Eklund’s (Christian Bale) “comeback,” but really, it turned out to just be a documentary about crackheads in Lowell, MA, that embarrassed the whole Eklund/Ward family (not to mention the entire town). Since...

He updated his original post by answering Anna’s question.
New year's changes at Salon →
Salon’s new male (I’m not hatin’, just sayin’) EIC Kerry Lauerman has posted about the death of its women’s interest blog Broadsheet, which mysteriously stopped being updated on back on December 21, with no goodbye post, fanfare, announcement or anything, leaving me wondering what the hell had happened. I thought maybe my RSS feed was just broken or something, as that...
The Williamsturd: A Post-Post-Feminist Phenomenon →
This brings me back. Way back. Not only to my formerly single life, but also to when I used to blog about it. The nostalgia evokes (not warm but very) fuzzy memories. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have fun in those hazy days, but I don’t really miss them. I’m really enjoying life as a married couch potato now, but I will always have a place in my heart for girls like the...
My husband just came home from work and wanted a kiss and I told him, “Sorry, but I have Ryan Adams’ breath right now.” He said, “Why don’t you brush your teeth and get Bryan Adams’ breath?”
Did You Know That Snooki's Book Has a Date Rape...
I don’t really know which is more disturbing: The scene itself or that it eerily resembles certain aspects of how The Situation behaves with his hookups. Anyway, you can read the excerpt here.
The Numbers Are Bad!
I had briefly considered playing the Lost numbers yesterday, but couldn’t be bothered to go to the bodega. (It would feel like cheating on the deli that delivers me my cigarettes every morning.) If I had, I would’ve won $150, which doesn’t seem worth it, considering my mom would’ve broken her leg, her house would’ve caught fire, a meteor would’ve crashed into...
For NYE, my husband and I stayed home and I made fondue and a strawberry cake. Then we preceded to watch about 20 movies on Apple TV of which 18 were delightfully shitty—e.g. Open Water 2—but this one called Grimm Love has been haunting me ever since. It’s based on a true story about these two gay German guys. One was a cannibal and the other had a strong desire to be eaten. They met in a...
Watching ‘The Fish’ Fade to Black →
I can’t believe Max Fish is closing and that I was like the last person to find out about it. So many memories…that I can’t really remember.
The Year in Mariah Carey
She really did have a blast in 2010. I continue to be mesmerized by her golden globes. I mean, I think this is the most perfect breast presentation I’ve ever seen.
