Hair Dryer How-to

I had to share this email I received from my friend Courtney:

I just got a new hairdryer, and for some reason I am reading the instructions (boredom probably), and the warnings are really weird. Some I thought you might appreciate:

"Never use while sleeping"
"Do not use where aerosol products are being used" (Isn't that like every salon in America?)
"Do not direct heat towards eyes"

In case you've been drying your hair while sound asleep or aiming the heat directly at your face, Courtney and I wanted to warn you gals against these dangerous beauty behaviors. 

If you so choose to tame your frizz while awake, try this fab round brush.

It's Cookie Time

My BFF came to visit this weekend from New York. After a few too many glasses of wine, we found ourselves watching/singing along to "Cookie Time" WHILE eating Girl Scout Cookies. (Seriously.)

Troop Beverly Hills is one of the best movies of all time. And the only thing more fabulous than Phyllis Nefler's wardrobe is having this song in your head nonstop for 3 days:

Special Valentines Unit

You don't have to be a detective to figure out how awesome these SVU valentine's day cards are. Here's to hoping your Valentine has the abs of Elliot Stabler, the sensitivity of Dr. Huang, and the ponytail of Fin Tutuola. Happy V-day everyone!

Feds Say It's OK to Complain About Work on Facebook

Sick of crappy assignments? Convinced you could be making more money as a babysitter? Bewildered at the amount of time your boss spends on Well, now you can vent freely on Facebook without fear of getting canned.

The National Labor Relations Board says that communicating with coworkers about the workplace on Facebook is protected by law.

While it's legally allowed, any professional with half a brain would know better than to use their wall as office group therapy. Trash-talk all you want over drinks with your friends. That's why Happy Hour was invented. But blasting your work gripes on Facebook to a lengthy list of "friends" - including current co-workers - is a bad career move. From potential employers to your cubemate, you never know who's scoping out your online persona. All it takes is one tasteless status update for others to determine you're legitimately nuts.

Keep it classy.

A Very "Controversial" Bachelor

The best part of watching the trainwreck known as The Bachelor, is the play-by-play from friends as we watch. And last night's episode provided really good material for my viewing crew.We had some very strong reactions to Brad dangling in a harness, while wearing Spandex, practicing for the Elvis themed version of Cirque du Soleil. We were a little peeved that B-Rad is still under Crazy Michelle's spell. And we were annoyed that no one feels "special". Hi, you're on a reality show and you sleep in child sized bunk beds, 4 to a room. What did you expect?

Here's a little banter from our viewing party. Do you agree?

Immediately upon the start of the show:
-I hope Michelle falls out of a vehicle.

1st Brad testimonial:
-Is he wearing a felt vest?

Shawntel returns from shopping spree date. Potential bubble over Ashley's head:
-F*ck the circus, I want a Fendi.

Alone date with Shawntel, on the roof:
-Is this The Hangover?
-I love fireworks.
-Fireworks are the best.
