So we have a cat cafe now…

In 1998 someone in Taiwan had a brilliant idea: what if you could go to a cafe to drink hot beverages, eat pastries AND pet cats? What a wonderful thing that would be. And so it was that the world’s first cat cafe opened in Taiwan in 1998. This Taiwanese...

I’m planning on having a really good time.

Recently I read another blog titled ’10 Things No One Tells You About Planning Your Wedding’. After wasting 10 minutes of my life reading and then sneering at it, I was slightly in shock. I mean these are the things EVERYONE who is now divorced tells you about planning your...

When I was a teenager I liked to read People magazine.

Does my femininity look undervalued in this?

Does this bow tie go with my vacuum? This week saw the once culturally relevant Kirsten Dunst make comments about gender roles that would have caused none to raise an eyebrow in the 1950’s. However, in 2014 most of us feminists out here were wishing she’d choke a bit on...

America’s Next Nude Model

It’s hard for me to write negative things about a hardworking Jew who pays his workers a living wage and manufactures his garments in the USA, where the company is based. It’s hard for me to criticize a man who fights for balanced trade and lower duty fees on imports/exports...

Who needs therapy when there’s Disney?

 Last night I tucked myself in tight under my impossibly fluffy blanket, rested my feet on Steve’s lap and prepared to watch Disney’s Frozen for the second time. I’ve been singing the soundtrack for the past three weeks since I first saw it and have become what some people might...
