It’s Like Hello Kitty For Men

It’s Like Hello Kitty For Men

As an early Christmas present, I gave Mr. Foxypants a penguin shaped seltzer machine to replace his two bottle a day Pellegrino habit. Although I absolutely prefer the taste of Pellegrino over filtered Los Angeles tap water, environmentally, bottled water is a terrible waste of resources. Financially, bottle water sucks too, as Pellegrino is more […]

I Hate To Be One Of Those Lame People

who blog about their appliances. But I admit it:I’m an appliance whore.¬†The only major disagreement that I have ever had with Mr. Foxypants is over my refrigerator.

I hated the yarn. It […]

Don’t Ever Change

Don’t Ever Change

My high school boyfriend is my favorite ex-boyfriend. He is the only ex-boyfriend I’d ever think about having sex with again.
