Cosmo Confessions

Like almost every girl in America, I find myself unable to resist the terrible “confessions” and “bloopers” sections of magazines like Cosmo. Usually they involve being caught in the bedroom by parents, a missing article of clothing in public, awkward sexual moments, or just plan bad luck. But I can across one tonight I wanted to share:

“I’m a professional nanny who works for a family with two kids. One night, the parents were out late at an event. I put the kids to bed and went downstairs to watch television. The material on my thong was really itchy, and it finally got to the point where I couldn’t stop scratching down there. I was so grateful when the parents got home because I could go to my place and change. The next day when I got to work, the mother handed me anti-itch cream and told me I should see a doctor. She informed me that they had a nanny cam and had seen me itching all night long. I tried to explain but could barely get out the words. I was so humiliated.” -Tracy, 26

Hot Chicks With DoucheBags

February 11, 2008

I have found a new guilty pleasure website. HotChicksWithDouchebags. The site has pictures (with commentary) of the dreaded, but common, club casualty: hot chicks with douchebags. Unbelieveably good looking women with swarmy, greasy men. Hair puffed up, shirt unbuttoned 30k millionaires, drunk frat guys throwing gang signs, and old men trying to score with young girls. Of particular interest is the Douchies, they give out awards for the douchiest of douches.

Body Image/Pharmacy Videos

December 8, 2007

I am sure many of you have seen the Dove love your body commercials before, but I got linked to a site that had a bunch of them posted.  There were two I hadn’t seen that I thought were interesting.  I have mixed feelings about the videos, but I think the editing and the points are good.  My problem is two fold, one I don’t really care that girls get bad images from the media, and two Dove has all sorts of skin care products that sell completely because women are expected to take care of themselves physically.  So I really don’t need my soap company telling me how the world should be or how to raise kids.  But on the other hand they are visually effective.

Also someone posted this video in my pharmacy class’s facebook group.  I thought it was cute/funny.  It is a .swf so I didn’t know how to put it directly into the page.

Breast Cancer Quotes

October 6, 2007

I figured I would put these up in honor of Breast Cancer awareness month. I keep seeing the pink ribbons everywhere and we are doing a lot at school for raising money for and awareness of cancer. Also we just did an interesting section of immunology in my infectious disease management class on potential treatments. It was more comprehensive than many schools would include, because it dared to talk about treatments other than chemo, radiation, and surgery. I think the teachers willingness to expose us to the latest science even if the scientific community is still debating it is one of the most positive things about Temple. Because more than likely during the course of our careers these new methods will be used in many places, so while it is important to know the standard treatments it is also important to be aware of new developments. http://www.unitedforpink.com/ has many interesting/inspiring stories, medical information, and support forums for Breast Cancer. And I was reading it today and it featured an article of quotes from survivors from all over the country.
