Why did you put that on Tinder? Why are you even on Tinder?!

I blame Eliza for inspiring me to get on Tinder (not really). But it’s my own fault for sticking with it. I find the app so thoroughly entertaining.

OK, most of the time I don’t mean entertaining but horrifying (NSFW), but you get the idea.

40 Days of Dating

I heard about 40 Days of Dating via Mashable so I realize it’s entirely possible you did too.

Just in case you did not, please click here. The concept is straightforward – two friends commit to dating for forty days, the length of time it’s thought to break a bad habit. It’s the execution that’s unique.

Both participants, Tim and Jessica, are design professionals and the web site on which the forty day process is recounted reflects that. It’s gorgeous.

While the forty days of dating happened in the spring, the recaps are just rolling out now. You can easily catch up in a day or two of binge reading and watching. Day 40 is August 16.

There are rules, of course. Even the rules are attractively presented!

I’m so curious to know how the forty days ended. Jessie and Tim don’t seem to be all that compatible but for some reason I find myself rooting for their dates to go beyond the experiment.

Incidentally, while reading Day 25′s post, I realized that Jessica Walsh is the Walsh of Sagmeister & Walsh. Yep, the company that goes nude in its marketing and promotional materials.

It’s that connection that made me wonder: is 40 Days of Dating real? What do you think?

Actors, their parents and nudity

Watching Orange is the New Black, I couldn’t help but think “do the actors’ parents watch?”

I assume that if you’re Taylor Schilling or Laura Prepon, you’re so excited to be doing quality work on a well-written project like OITNB that it’s not your first concern. But then you’re shooting a shower scene, and both of you are topless. Then what?

It depends on the family, obviously, but with my parents, I just cringe thinking about nudity. Sometimes it inhibits what I write too.

How crummy to try to make it in television and film–with or without the support of family–only to get cast but have reservations about said family seeing your complete work!

Amanda Seyfried, who is currently promoting her film Lovelace, had this to say in US Weekly.

AmandaWhat do you think? If you were an actor, how would you deal?

I can relate.

Shame Sex

I think we all have someone in mind. A person we’d hook up with if presented with the opportunity…even if the person isn’t conventionally attractive. They might even be kind of gross. Or insane. Want to know who I’d have Shame Sex with? Continue reading

An open casting call for my sex dreams

I have had to fire my sex dreams’ casting director. He was no longer getting it done.

He let this guy into my special dreams

And him

And even him, which is fine other than the fact that it makes me feel like a pathetic loser.

Consider this an open casting call. I’m taking this into my own hands.

A peek inside the Olympic Village

As much as the competitions themselves hold our attention, lots of us are curious about life inside the Olympic Village.

Access to the Village is extremely limited with essentially zero access for media during the Games. Still stories spill out, usually by the same people “protected” from journalists in the first place. Ha!

Additionally, stories about other elements of the Village are placed, such as this one about the residences’ interior design and plans for post-Games use.

The spaces are bright and fresh, but if I were an athlete, I wouldn’t be excited about a twin bed OR having a roommate.

Just call me Princess Bitchface. It won’t be the first time.

Thanks to @joannagoddard whose blog I adore for making me aware of this cool article.

Back to that loose lips article I mentioned, I have to say that it totally made me nostalgic for my college days and my first years living in NYC. Perhaps I should leave it at that.

How Girls-like

The amazing HBO show Girls, created by and starring Lena Dunham, has stirred up so many memories of my own awkwardness. Particularly in the areas of dating and sex.
Not, of course, that awkward moments reside solely in my past. No. They happen all too often. Paging Liz Lemon.
I’m going to tell you a story. I’m also going to hope that no one from my family reads this blog – ever. Continue reading

Fifty Shades of ubiquity

When I wrote the post “Fifty Shades of intense publicity” in March, I had no idea what lay ahead.

The book is everywhere, prominently displayed in stores and covered by seemingly every major media outlet.
