Am I wrong to be uncomfortable about this?

I know the Real Housewives are fairly unsympathetic characters, but can't we talk about that instead of OH GROSS BOTOX UGHHHHHHHH? It's not as if these women made the choice to use (or overuse) Botox in a vacuum. They're part of a society - even and maybe especially their small, 1% segment - that tells them that their… » 4/17/14 12:58pm Thursday 12:58pm

Anyone here on Wellbutrin?

Most of you probably know about my depression issues around here. Well, yesterday I went and got me some pills for it! I took my first 150mg dose of bupropion this morning. But I have a question for anyone that's on it. Obviously I won't feel any neurological effects for a few weeks or so, but is it normal to feel so… » 4/10/14 12:22pm 4/10/14 12:22pm

Game Show March Madness Day 8: The Elite Eight

Yesterday didn't have quite the suspense that we've seen over the weekend, with only a couple of matchups staying close until the end. The real shocker is the rise of the 7-seeds. Three 7s have made the Elite Eight, but all three are going to have a tough time today. Whose Line? is running into everyone's favorite sick … » 3/25/14 12:35pm 3/25/14 12:35pm

Game Show March Madness Day 7: The Sweet Sixteen

As I'm writing this, there are still three results that are too close to call, and thus, I will be waiting to fill them in until just before publishing. As of now, though, there are no ties. Today, the Sweet Sixteen! We'll see if Whose Line? can continue destroying the competition from the 7-line, find out if Win, Lose … » 3/24/14 12:03pm 3/24/14 12:03pm

Game Show March Madness Day 5: Shit Gets REALLY REAL

We've finished our opening round and weeded out our pretenders to the throne. There have been a couple upsets along the way (Scrabble over Card Sharks? Really?), but mostly we've been sending the lesser game shows packing. Now we get into the ones that (hopefully) will get people upset.
