The Hangover
August 2, 2006 09:37

Jason wakes up the next morning with a huge hangover from his office party. He forces himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he sees is... (The Rest of the Story...)

Our buddy Chester got fired the other day
August 3, 2006 13:38

His company was planning the annual summer picnic, and "volunteered" him to the committee. Corporate offered plenty of burgers and dogs, but told them "only one alcoholic drink per employee" (liability issues, you know, or maybe it was just the $). So, Chester ordered the drink cups...

Mel Gibson: So, Mel is Human!
August 5, 2006 11:59

God, I hate to see it! The press tearing another celeb to pieces for making a very human mistake.

I have been in love with Mel for years, ever since he appeared as the baby-faced road warrior in Mad Max. And, Braveheart... what a movie! Mel Gibson is a beautiful man who makes beautiful movies. Isn't that what really counts?

We all found out the other day that he has a drinking problem, and probably has some prejudices, to boot. Now, aren't we describing your uncle, or next door neighbor here? Or even your husband? Do we crucify them for their weaknesses and religious views? No? Then why Mel?

Isn't it time we took ALL celebs (including our politicians and pro sports heroes) down off their pedestals, and respected their right to be human, just like the rest of us? I do not admire Mel for his anti-Semitic remarks the other night. But I do admire his acting and directing talents.

Take your lumps, then, back in the saddle, Mel...

Dating Tips: Weasels on the Web?
August 6, 2006 13:44

Of course there are. Common sense tells you that there are bound to be some snake-oil salesmen among the innocents just looking for a date online. And that is a problem. There's the guy in Atlantic City who was found guilty of wire fraud for scamming ten women around the country with fake Internet profiles. He'd tell women he met online that he needed money to move to their area, then abscond with the loot. (There's one born every minute, right?) (The Rest of the Story...)

    Free Love Advice: "I'm in love with a restaurant Nazi!"
    August 8, 2006 10:51

    Dear Stella, I have been dating "George" for over 5 months, and I love him. Things are going great except for one minor problem: he turns into a monster when we go out to eat in a restaurant. He is rude and demanding to the waiters, usually sends his plate back because it's "not right", and he is a miserable tipper. Otherwise, he's really a nice guy. Why does he do this? What should I do? --- Mixed up in Memphis (The Rest of the Story...)

    Best Date Movies-- Two Moon Junction
    August 9, 2006 14:03

    Things getting a little cool and scarce in the bedroom lately? Wow, we rented a movie the other night that should heat things up for y'all! It's called "Two Moon Junction", was released in 1988, and stars April and Perry (two gorgeous unknowns). This movie is unusual, to say the least; an Amazon review calls it an "insane southern melodrama". Look for little Tattoo among the carnies. And yes, that is Kristy McNichol exchanging lace camisoles with the leading lady. Sexy, steamy, sultry, smouldering... (The Rest of the Story...)

    Free Love Advice: Wanna Win Some Brownie Points?
    August 14, 2006 12:41


    Little known fact: Did you know that this week, August 13-19th, is "Resurrect Romance Week"? Chase's Calendar of Annual Events, described as "the bible of special occasions" by the Los Angeles Times, claims it is! This celebration focuses on using creativity and thought in expressing love for your significant other over this seven-day span.

    Romance can be defined as a "fiery expression of love between two people". Just when was the last time you were romanced, or did the romancing? It does not require a lot of time or money-- just thought, planning and creativity.

    Now, to a woman, romance=romantic gesture=roses; and to a man, romance=sex=sex. (Just being realistic here). So, men, send a dozen red roses to your lady... AT WORK.

    Ladies, buy a box of your guy's favorite "sweet treat" (or bake him some chocolate chip cookies). Put them in tissue paper, place in one of those gift bags, and find a nice card. Then comes the best part… go to His Love Coupons, print out the very last coupon ("Pick your fantasy"), slip it in the card and present the bag to him.

    And don't forget to tell your lover that you are doing this to help "resurrect romance". Piece of cake!

    Where Shopping is a Pleasure...
    August 15, 2006 14:41

    I tell you what, the new Publix they built down the street is state-of-the-art radical! They have an automatic water mister to keep the produce fresh. Just before it goes on, you hear the sound of distant thunder and the smell of fresh rain.

    When you approach the milk cases, you hear cows mooing and witness the scent of fresh hay. As you walk past the egg case, you hear hens cluck and cackle and the air is filled with the pleasant aroma of bacon and eggs frying.

    Just walking through there is a sensory adventure.

    I've started buying my toilet paper somewhere else, though...

    To Dress... Or Not?
    August 24, 2006 12:09

    Are you constantly moaning and groaning about how there's no available men out there? Well, how do you dress when you go to Wal Mart? You are just as likely to meet your soul mate in line at the supermarket as at an upscale club on a Saturday night. So anytime you go out in public, dress attractively! And the best dude magnet of all? Why, a dress, of course...

    Put on a dress sometimes! Men LOVE them. Nothing like a dress to say... "Girl here". Try this little experiment:

    First, put on some jeans, t-shirt and sandals. Go grocery shopping. Walk up and down the aisles; pretend you are looking for something. Any of the grocery guys come up to help you out? No!

    Go home, wait a couple hours, get dressed up: a nice dress, hose and heels, makeup, nice sunglasses. Dress to kill! Then, go repeat your grocery store performance. And notice how the stock boys come out of the woodwork to help you find your missing item!
