Holy cow. This is brilliant. Three robbers stuck up a nice couple in a parking lot over the weekend, then one of the robbers, Stephfon Bennett, age 20, returned to the couple’s apartment, knocked on the door, and asked out the chick. That is some shitty game. First off, what kind of name is Stephfon? Secondly, robbing someone and then asking out the chick never works. Bennett is currently locked up in a county jail for aggravated assault. Broski, I have two words for you: Match.com.
“We are not exactly sure what he was thinking at the time,” said Columbus police Sgt. Shaun Laird.

I recently joined the gym again, which means that I’ve been coming home all sweaty. In some cases, this hasn’t been an indicator that I’ve been hitting the cardio hard (I’ve yet to do that). In fact, I’ve been mostly focusing on yoga and pilates (yesterday was my first pilates class and wow! my abs are sore today).
Sadly, the sweaty has been a combination of the movement I have been doing at the gym (it was a fast-paced yoga class, so there was some cardio) and the fact that it’s still like 105 here every day. Ugh.
In any case, last week I got home from the gym; Jake was home and followed me to the bedroom while telling me about his day. Then I took my clothes off. Read the full article
In case you didn’t know, Honey and I are both part of the Brazen Careerist network, which we both love. Up until a few weeks ago, Brazen was a blog network on steroids comprised of young professionals between the ages of 20 – 30 (ie Generation Y), but they recently re-launched themselves as a full-on social network and online tool for jobseekers and headhunters. The focus of the revamped Brazen is now around “ideas,” that is, instead of highlighting experience, which recent college graduates likely don’t have, the emphasis is on the ideas and content that the individual users are producing.
The Good: This is a cool idea that is going to appeal to Gen Y’ers who are looking to network with other 20-somethings who love to write and share ideas on the Internet. Don’t have a job or unsatisfied at being a corporate drone at age 25? Brazen is perfect for you because the network is full of folks exactly like that and there is a TON of content being produced around related themes. Read the full article

As I’ve mentioned before, Jake and I have quite a bit of student loan and credit card debt. I have less debt than he does overall, but proportionally to each of our incomes we owe about the same.
One of the things that sucks the most about paying off debt is that once you’ve done all the big stuff you can (for example, in February we moved into a house a little more than half the size of our previous place, and we also shuffled around our credit cards so he could get better interest rates – my rates were already pretty awesome) then it’s just a whole lot of sitting and waiting for the paying it off part to be done. Which, in our case, means years. Sucky. However, we have made a bit of progress in this area lately due to some windfalls.

Jake and I always joke about the “gifts” love style because it seems funny to us…he does very much like to receive gifts, which I try to buy on a fairly consistent basis (for me, gifts are sort of an act of service in any case, so I am not too bad at giving them although I am far better at other things). He also likes to give gifts. When it comes to receiving actual physical gifts, it is very difficult for me to think of things that I would want, as I’ve said previously. But lately he’s found a way to sneak it in there. Read the full article
Nice. My fav social media news site, Mashable.com, fired off a post that analyzed some stats about online dating. To make a long story short, guys should write shorter emails and send out more of them per hour to get a better response. Numbers point to a 1.71 conversation rate. That’s a pretty shitty conversion rate, but whatever. Chicks, as usual, have got it easier online, with a 3.43 conversion rate with short emails of less than 50 characters. Ladies…what the fuck are you writing in less than 50 characters that guys respond to? Leave smartalecky answers in comments.
Peeps, don’t forget to upload great pictures in different contexts to help make your profile stickier. Smile. Don’t look grim and serious. If you’re a dude, avoid looking like a douche, and ladies, please don’t tell us how much you love to laugh. We know this.
