Much as I had mixed feelings about the film Juno, I just don't understand the massive public hate-on for its screenwriter, Diablo Cody. Okay, she gave herself a stupid pen name. Juno had a couple of overly precious, cringeworthy lines of dialogue. Does that really warrant parodies like these?
Because I got into a great discussion about the word "bitch" and feminism with the guy that changed my oil at Jiffy Lube the other day. He starting talking about how his mother struggled as a "single mom" in the late 50's and we collectively wondered what she would think about the reclamation of the word for personal use. Anyone have any good stories about conversations they've had as a result of folks merely seeing the title of the magazine? (It's also how I met one of my best friends at the gym. I knew she was cool cause she was wearing a Bitch t-shirt).
Ever think to yourself, "Hey, I know what my Americano needs...to be sexier?" Latte Dolls is a new mobile coffee house that features an all-female lingerie-clad waitstaff. Wait, it gets better!

I'm going to start this post by admitting that, most mornings, I wake up and immediately turn on the Today show. Partly it's a kind of alarm supplement, to ensure that I don't fall back asleep. Partly it's because I like to know if anything was attacked or blown up or wiped out or otherwise disaster-fied in the previous 8 to 10 hours. And finally, I find Matt Lauer and Al Roker oddly soothing in the A.M.
Cheers to a new study reporting that, contrary to age-old stereotypes about teenage boys as indiscriminate horndogs, 16-year-old boys' primary motivations for dating are that they "really like the person" (via the New York Times health blog).
