In Response to Steve Santagati's article this week on dearsugar.com
(if you don't want to click then here's a sample below)
Below you'll see my list of the top three things I've learned about women in relationships, and I want you to give me yours. Tell me the three things that guys just don't understand about women.
I go first:
Making a woman feel beautiful and sexy will go a long way in making the relationship more harmonious.
When I argue with a woman, I can usually see her side of the story — even if I disagree — but she will never be able to see mine.
Women are just as naughty as men. Men don't care if everyone knows they're a pig, but women have to feel safe to let their naughty side shine. The better I've become at making a woman feel safe being her mischievous self, the more I see of the real her.
Despite the disgusting title of his website and book (bad boys finish first, seriously? I know it's attention grabbing but it's also immediately off-putting) I normally agree with the advice Mr Santagati has to dispense. It is usually constructive, honest common sense from a guy who has obviously been around the block more than a few times. I can't say that I have the same amount of experience but I think that I can impart these small truths about women that guys just don't seem to understand.
- An honest, level headed woman can usually see all sides to the story, even if they disagree with your point of view, whether they will let you know this or not depends on how much your point of view offends her & how stubborn you both are.
- Every woman loves flattery but what every woman loves more than sweet-nothings whispered tenderly into her ear is the actions that back up such words. You say you are going to fan her with a palm leaf while feeding her grapes- Instead of telling her this try actually arranging a romantic rendez-vous that involves you pampering her before you try to get into her pants. A gift for gab will get you far but sweet gestures and thoughtful conduct will get you a lot farther and count for so much more.
-We want honesty. Consider our feelings and desires (emotional as well as carnal) and how your conduct might affect us before you put your plans into action. Women are far more reasonable when they are shown some consideration.
- All women are over-analytical. Guys are pretty simple usually they just say what they mean and aren't thinking very far (if at all) ahead, not so for us girls.

You poor lads always get the short end of the stick in fashion but now there's something to smile about Balmain will introduce a Men's line in January at Men's Fashion Week in Paris. Christophe Decarnin will suit guys up in his trademark edgy-glam rock n roll chic and we couldn't be more excited!

I hate the fact that I can't watch SNL or ever SNL clips on the internet because my IP address is Canadian. Why is Hulu only for people in the US and why can't NBC release a handful of skits to be watched by anyone and everyone? So to protest this I have posted this Kids in the Hall sketch. One of my favorites, enjoy!

I am having a John Hughes moment. After having revisited the breakfast club a few weeks ago I watched sixteen candles and pretty in pink last night. Now, I'm not about to watch the Beethoven movies or maid in manhattan, so maybe I'm just having an 80's John Hughes moment. Weird Science and Curly Sue are next and of course Ferris Bueller. The above clip combines Hughes with two other of my favorite things- fashion and motown. I had forgotten how amazing Jon Cryer is as Duckie and the styling for that character is Outta my Mind (that navy borcade jacket he wears to prom is phenomenal!) the colourful and crazy patterned shirts, the bolo tie, the scuffed-up white leather shoes, the hats the Joh Lennon sunglasses, the Elvis hair- it's straight out of a 2007 fashion editorial, or a hipster's wetdream- well actually he can't be classified as hipster because there's no neon and the look is way to retro-classic even for the 80's...this is what hipsters should now aspire to look like. Annie Potts' Iona is also great- actually Molly Ringwald's Andie is the most terribly dressed (her prom dress- pretty in pink- more like boxy and terrible) but I guess that is what you suffer for being the 80's everygirl. Marilyn Vance (also responsible for Costume Design on Breakfast Club, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Ferris Bueller and Pretty Woman) I Salute You!

"There's Georges Seurat's Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. There is Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Winston Churchill, and the Cornell Law School, of which Kratzer is an alumnus. There is Kratzer's dad. There is the harlequin pattern — alluded to in culinary culture today by the Panera bread bag — and a fake fireplace facing a real one.
There are both The Walrus and the Carpenter (from Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There), and William Shakespeare. The Marx Brothers peer around a corner. A flip-top garbage can is transformed via marker art into Star Wars' plucky little beeper R2D2."

Doesn't Burberry Spring 2009 (below) look a lot like Nina Ricci Fall 2008 (above)? Similar colour palette and silhouette, especially those extra long, skinny pants. Much love for those amazing necklaces Christopher Bailey sent down the runway....a definate must have!

After the horrific incident last night, reports are surfacing that Brady has a torn ACL. Either way, the Patriots annouced that he is undergoing knee surgery (the kind was not specified) and is out for the rest of the season. Without Brady NE managed to pull out a 17-10 win with the completely unproven Matt Cassels at QB. This begs the questions...is history repeating and what would it take for Cassels to supplant Brady?
Even if Cassels' played solidly for the year and the Pats made the playoffs, would that be enough for the Pats to trade Brady? It would certainly be the makings of a quaterback Controversy, but I highly doubt it would be one where the three time Superbowl Champion Brady would find himself out of a Pats uniform or worse, on the bench. However, say the unthinkable happens, and the Pats go 19-0, or say 18-1 or even 17-2 and WON the Superbowl, would that be enough? Surely this would put Pats fans up in arms and would have their foes licking their lips at the taste of what some would reckon as just desserts for the man whose success came at the expense of another injured pro-bowl starting quaterback.
However, having said that, unlike Tom Brady Drew Bledsoe was never considered to be the best quaterback of his generation and arguably the best to ever touch a pigskin. So even if Cassels lead the Pats to a Superbowl this year and earns himself the top spot on Belichick's team for next year that doesn't mean that a recovered Brady, traded to a different team wouldn't be able to re-live Superbowl glory in a different uniform (and don't even go there about the Pats keeping Cassels as starter and Brady on the bench- didn't happen to Favre- No Way it will happen to Brady).

For the last two months there has been endless construction going on outside my window. I don't know what needs jackhammering almost every day for two consecutive months but I'm quite fed up. I can barely think, can hardly write, let alone sleep and yet I see no fruit being borne of this endless cacophony of sound. It is days like this when I wish that I had bought a laptop instead of my ghetto ass dell pc (which I hate. Never again will I let price alone dictate the company I buy a computer from. Don't buy a dell). It isn't enough that this usually goes on for six days a week, that is starts at 8:30am (sometimes earlier!) and goes on until whenever they goddamn please but it has to be right outside my window! Oh yay, a moment's respite before the endless drilling starts up again.

Could have used this when I was at Wonderland this weekend when I got my first sunburn ever.
