I'm so confused. Why is this brilliant? Look at some of the comments here, "I made it my goal to learn to twerk by the end of the summer!" and "I tried to pose like that and hurt my hip! LOL!" Isn't that kind of what Taylor Swift was doing? Trying to dance like that and making fun of the fact she looks like a total… » 8/20/14 11:10am Wednesday 11:10am

I could maybe understand the NFL thing if it were an obscure up and coming performer that would benefit from the viewership of the Super Bowl, but expecting that from any of those three is absolutely ridiculous. They could very well say the same thing to the Super Bowl and ask for portion of the ad revenue from the… » 8/20/14 10:48am Wednesday 10:48am

When I was in the throws of my own disease (not alcohol) in grad school, my boyfriend at the time broke up with me. I get it, I was a terrible person to be around. I entered treatment, and when it ended, guess who showed back up? If he didn't want to help me through it, fine. But don't abandon me when I need you the… » 8/19/14 10:46am Tuesday 10:46am

I wonder if the job went into the decision or stereotypes of the different jobs men and women have may play a role. At my previous job, the rule was the place of employment never closes, not even for record breaking snow. Fortunately, my job could be done from home if needed, so I could stay home and not take a day… » 8/18/14 11:27am Monday 11:27am

There are a lot of Taylor Swift posts on Jezebel where people reply, "I just can't hate her! I know everyone else does! But she's so cute!" It seems everyone is okay with Swift, so please quit acting like it's so tacky to like her. I stand my ground though. She clearly has a thing for being the center of attention,… » 8/15/14 11:02am 8/15/14 11:02am

In the county I worked for, we contracted out body pick-up. EMS didn't pick up the already dead, and there was no ambulance transport. I have no clue how they do it in St. Louis, but EMS may not be responsible. However, I highly doubt throwing a dead body into a police vehicle is the proper way to transport a dead… » 8/14/14 12:08pm 8/14/14 12:08pm

I was trying to find a dress at a store and needed to go to the bathroom. They sent me over to Baby Gap, and my ovaries were practically shrieking over all the cute baby sweaters and jumpers. Then my brain kicked in after seeing the price tags and told my ovaries to simmer down before I made it back outside to meet… » 8/14/14 10:36am 8/14/14 10:36am

Here's my things with this - I've had an eating disorder for 10+ years that developed out of body insecurities and just kind of become my crutch for anything that bothered or upset me. I'm in treatment right now, and though the journey has been very long and full of falling off the horse, I'm progressing and seeing… » 5/15/14 9:45am 5/15/14 9:45am

I saw a friend post photos from Sea World while Blackfish was fresh on my mind and still being talked about in the media a lot, and I was really shocked. I'm not some big activist, but I wondered if she just didn't see the documentary? I don't know. I was surprised by how let down I was by seeing a friend go to Sea… » 3/14/14 12:13pm 3/14/14 12:13pm

I online dated off and on for 9 years. After a few bad dates early last year, I got extremely sassy to one eharmony match that had not responded to my questions, nudges, you name it. I would normally shrug it off, but I sent an email saying that I'm really disappointed he hasn't responded, and I think we have a lot in… » 3/12/14 11:46am 3/12/14 11:46am

How to not feel awful after rough night with friend?

This sounds like I'm asking about how to cure a hangover, but I'm really referring to being a complete bitch to a friend. This weekend, I had two friends (my maid of honor and a bridesmaid) throw me a bachelorette party. I can sometimes be a little to quick at the mouth, but I started taking birth control a week ago… » 3/11/14 2:53pm 3/11/14 2:53pm
