Last week, a big issue erupted about J.Crew’s creative director Jenna Lyons. Her ascent to the top of the design ladder at the company has been well documented and praised, especially since she is responsible for J.Crew’s new found ascension in trendiness.  The controversy is about a J.Crew ad that depicts Lyons’ life on a weekend, “Saturday with Jenna”, in which she is photographed with her son. In one of the photographs, she is shown painting his toenails pink.  This detail is what the media, specifically Fox News contributor Dr. Keith Ablow, has chosen to emphasize. (more…)

I hate when this happens.

According to The Huffington Post, a 19-year-old Michigan State University student faces possible charges after being caught by police with 79 pairs of stolen underwear, each and every one of them being thongs.

One can’t help but wonder the reasons behind this fetish—a lack of exposure to thongs on the regular, perhaps? Said student told the police that it was simply a prank and does not have any kind of sex addiction.

Maybe this poor schmuck doesn’t have a sex addiction, but creeping in laundry rooms and stealing up to 15 pairs of panties at a time is definitely twisted.

By the way dude, you can have all my thongs, I’m in the market for some new underwear anyway.

Executive Web Editor extraordinaire for Jerk Magazine, Kate Holloway, inquired my thoughts via her Facebook status after the blog-o-sphere exploded concerning the newest accusations concerning Sarah Palin and feminism.

In my book, Sarah Palin does not support feminist ideals, therefore it is difficult for me to associate her with the progressive, never-ending fight for equal rights between genders. Scratch that—it’s nearly impossible for me to consider her a feminist.

Strong women exemplify components of feminism no matter what—Palin’s leadership in her otherwise lacking party is admirable, especially considering current gender roles in politics. Gender aside, I would never elect an individual to greater office who chose to step down from their position as Governor in order to write books, appear on Fox news as a contributing analyst, and signs deals with TLC for reality shows. Woman or man—that can’t be my next President. (more…)

Juliet, my 5-year-old cousin, beating me in the annual Easter egg hunt.

Easter isn’t exactly my most favorite of holidays to begin with, needless to say I turn into a super drama queen when something goes slightly askew.

Birthdays are awesome because they come with presents and cake, Christmas means time spent baking cookies and listening to James Stewart’s unmistakeable accent as George Bailey, but Easter isn’t filled with the same initial excitement. Sure, chocolate bunnies and Peeps are something to look forward to, but I don’t really see what all the fuss is about.

I clearly woke up on the wrong side of the bed this past Sunday morning, because while running on 4.5 hours of sleep I proceeded to have one of the worst Easters ever. Here are 6 reasons why my 2010 Easter didn’t rock: (more…)

I’ve flown before, I know mistakes happen and people end up screwed and in need of connecting flights, accommodations, etc.  It’s just never happened to me, well, at least until now.

Happy People Waiting For Canceled Flights

Apparently when you purchase a seat online for a flight and it says that you’re guaranteed a seat, it doesn’t actually mean anything.  It was my intention to fly with my friends to Chicago and connect into Indianapolis, that’s not what happened (and if you couldn’t figure that out by now then you’re an idiot).

Oh right, the redirected flights are from Syracuse to Atalanta at 9:00 10:00 pm (thanks to a wonderful delay) where the next flight to Indianapolis is at 9:51 am.  Atlanta’s a lovely place, but when you want to be somewhere else…it resembles hell.

I don’t know what to make of this, so I thought it’d be best to post it publicly. Let the comments commence.
