Pronouncing The Year 2010: ‘Twenty Ten’ vs. ‘Two Thousand Ten’

There seems to be an ongoing debut among experts about how to pronouce the year 2010. It is assummed coming off of two “thousand nine,” that people will probably say “two thousand ten.” However, the National Association of Good Grammar (NAGG) has decided to step in and let the masses know that 2010 should officially be pronounced “twenty ten” and all subsequent years should be pronounced as “twenty eleven,” “twenty twelve,” etc. Contray to NAGG, David Crystal, author of the Cambridge Encyclopedia of the English Language has predicted that the change of pronunciation to “twenty X” will not occur until 2011. He believes in 2011 people will say “twenty eleven,” because the way people pronounce years depends on rhythm, rather than logic. He also claims that the rhythm or “flow” of “two thousand and ten,” beats that of “twenty ten,” but the flow of “twenty eleven” beats “two thousand and eleven.”

Ralph Lauren Ad… TOO SKINNY!

What man would want a woman this skinny? In fact, as women why would you want to look this skinny? As a thin woman I often feel extremely sorry for women who think this is acceptable and strive to be this thin. Often times if I am out and about shopping or trying on clothes other women will comment on my size. Comments include “you are the perfect size”, “because you are so small I am sure you can wear just about anything”, “I wish I was your size”, “what are you about a size 2”, etc. Believe it or not the latter quote was from an attorney in the business affairs department that was interviewing me for a position at a well established company.

I am 5’8 and I way roughly 130 pounds. I spent most of 2009 trying to gain 10 pounds as my goal was to be 140. That’s 140 pounds of muscle… I did reach 138, but my pants were becoming too tight and I was not interested in buying a new wardrobe as I like most of my clothes that I have now. In fact when I tell people that I am a solid size 4 and often wear 6’s they are in utter shock as they expect me to wear a size 0. My point is, I am thin and I couldn’t imagine being any thinner.

Ads like the one from Ralph Lauren send out a terrible message to young women. I think it is unacceptable and I am happy to learn that the U.K.’s Committee of Advertising Practice has been thinking about taking action on regulations governing Photoshopped ads targeted at girls younger than 16. These images are unrealistic for young women as well as women of a certain age. Continue reading

Who Said Men Don’t Like Ladies With Long Legs?

When I read the headline “Men Don’t Like Ladies With Long Legs” on one of my favorite men’s websites it caught my attention. As a self-proclaimed “cute” young lady with EXTREMELY long legs I immediately thought to myself wait, is this why I am single. Ha! Then I thought great, yet another thing against me. It wasn’t long ago when I was watching some random show called Millionaire Matchmaker where I had to listen to this so-call expert rant and rave about men not liking women with curly hair. Oh and must I forget the other thing, kind of a major thing depending on who you ask, but apparently men don’t like skinny women either. Ok, so if you’re counting, I have three strikes – long legs, curly hair, and skinny. When you add in “cute”, you would think it adds up to be a “Model.” Now ask yourself, what man wouldn’t want a model on his arm? Continue reading

“I’ll Kill Him Graveyard Dead Ma’am.”

Earlier this story I read a story about a 911 tape that was released from a home invasion shooting that left an intruder dead from a shotgun blast. The 911 call details the conversation between a 911 operator and a woman who opened fire on a man who at broke into her house. Although there is nothing funny about the story, several days later, I still find myself laughing at what is now going to stand up as one of the crazyist quotes of all time.

THE CALL: Continue reading

EX Girlfried Crashes Wedding…

What would you do if you were standing at the alter about to say “I-Do” to the woman of your dreams and your ex-partner’s mother, sisters and aunt burst into the room and began beating and screaming at you?

This very senerio happened. In fact after they finished beating and screaming at him, the burly women shoved him and his mother outside into a parking lot, where the ex-partner joined in. Once the dust settled and the police hauled everyone to jail, it was discovered the ex and her family put the beat down on the groom because the ex is claimed, she wasn’t his ex at all and was indeed his wife! Here is another twist, the ex wife filed a complaint against him for attempted “crimes against the family.” This is some funny sh*t!

She Suffers From a Mysterious Disorder Which Turns Her Into a Sex Addict When ASLEEP

Shes a a SEXsomniac!

When I came across the headline “Girl’s a Snore-Gasm Addict” I thought to myself, what the hell is this about? After reading “Stunning Belle Floor is a Sexsomniac — meaning she engages in sexual acts while she is sleeping — and cannot remember ANYTHING the next day“, I thought to myself, what the hell is a SEXsomniac?

Well apparently based on the very few articles that I came across when I did a Google search, several people claim to suffer from this disease. In fact, in another article I came across titled “Medical Condition Makes Barmaid Demand Sex While She Is Asleep” a women claims “I can have sex three or four times a night .. but in the morning I won’t know a thing about it.” If you will believe it, there is even a website set up to help people who suffer from this rare disease. There was even a song back in the day that described the life of a SEXsomniac by T-Boz from TLC called “I Touch Myself”.
