23 women show us their favorite positions

When reality television star and fashion blogger Lauren Conrad was asked what her “favorite position” was on a live radio program a while back, the women listening held their breath. Although we take great pride in the work that we do, most of us could relate to being undermined and belittled publicly at work. When Conrad cleverly retorted “CEO,” it was hard not to aggressively high-five our laptop and mobile devices. The words “hell” and “yeah” could be heard all across the nation.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman: Why I Wrote The Yellow Wall-Paper

Using the remnants of intelligence that remained, and helped by a wise friend, I cast the noted specialist’s advice to the winds and went to work again–work, the normal life of every human being; work, in which is joy and growth and service, without which one is a pauper and a parasite–ultimately recovering some measure of power.
Being naturally moved to rejoicing by this narrow escape, I wrote The Yellow Wall-Paper, with its embellishments and additions, to carry out the ideal (I never had hallucinations or objections to my mural decorations) and sent a copy to the physician who so nearly drove me mad. He never acknowledged it.

Tofu Lasagna with Spinach

influence from about.com search

  • 1/2 lb lasagna noodles
  • 2 10oz. packages frozen spinach (thawed)
  • 1 lb firm tofu
  • 1 lb soft tofu
  • 1 32 oz jar of tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup rice milk (we fucked up and didn’t get soy)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp minced fresh basil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 9x13 inch baking pan

-prepare the lasagna noodles, drain carefully and set aside on a towel

-pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

-squeeze spinach as dry as possible and set aside (place in zip lock bags and soak in hot water, when thawed open the zip lock slighty and squeeze the ever loving shit out of the spinach until all unnecessary green ooze is no longer present)

-place tofu, “milk”, sugar, garlic powder, lemon juice, basil, salt and shit in a food processor until it is all blended and shit smooth.

-cover that bottom (of the pan) with a nice thin layer of sauce.  spread it out nice an even.  then layer some of them noodles over it and then 1/2 that smooth shit (tofu blend/”cheeze” thang you just made) and half the spinach. REPEAT this for every layer you make. we made THREE layers of shit. END with noodles and sauce on that top…maybe some of that spinach stuff too (GARNISH PEOPLE!)

SHAKING AND BAKING for 25-30 minutes or until the sauce is all goobin and swelling

ENJOY THAT SHIT

I don’t see why not!

I’ve never experienced messages from guys on online games myself but I’m thinking it’s a safe bet that 50% of those messages are classic SWB texting examples and the other 50% are “oh you’re a girl and you’re a gamer?? okay name your top 25 favorite MMO’s created between the years of 2006 to 2007 and tell me how long you’ve been playing because I don’t believe girls can be REAL gamers”


Tinder summed up in one screenshot. 
I’m so sorry, I laughed. Can’t believe *some* guys think that’d work tho.
