‘Tis the season for women’s magazines and ads galore to demand our best “bikini shape” through painful butt-kicking training regimens and fad diets. Most claim that pounds will fly off in record time before summer, from P90X (which many friends swear by), to Nutrisystem, to the Ice Cube Diet. The latter doesn’t entail frantically [...]
We all heard the rumors, and we all saw the final episode of Late Night with Conan O’Brien with a tiny tear in our eyes. Let’s face it: Conan O’Brien is a national treasure. You are never unhappy to hear about him, he never ceases to make us laugh even on our worst day, [...]
