Smells Like Sexism, Playtex

It’s been pointed out to me that the wipes discussed below are aimed at both sexes, which I already knew, but since I’m used to advertising telling me my vagina is foul, I’ll leave it up to boys to defend themselves. *** What fresh, steamy hell is this? I’ll give you a clue: It ain’t lavender-scented, [...]

Apartment Hunting Just Got Easy: Padmapper

Well, it’s all coming down. Another 10 days, and I can start looking in earnest for March 1st rentals in Victoria. Holy choices-to-make, Batman! Here’s what I know. I know roughly where I want to live. And while I’m working from home, I want to be less than 15 minutes’ walk to my local gym, [...]

Fuck You, Hollywood.

We’re witnessing the end of an empire at the box office.
