We met in line for the port o’ potty during Jazzfest when I sidled up to him after noticing his pager and said, “You’re either a doctor or a drug dealer, but either way I sure would like to meet you.” It was 1992, I was living with my boyfriend up in Cle

Write about your worst present ever and you could win a $5 Starbucks gift card.
I was 16 and on my Christmas list I had written: a necklace, earrings and the Mulan soundtrack. (Yes, I was awkward at 16.) Here is what I got: A CD player, the Mulan soundtrack and a Barbie. My mom told me it would be my last Barbie. My eye roll was so huge, it was almost audible.

The New Year is off to a bittersweet start for Neenah Pickett.
The New Jersey media consultant, 43, spent all of 2009 searching for love and not finding it. Still, Pickett emerged with hope and pride intact.

What happens when a quarterback meets a blogging sensation?
Page Six and Gawker are concerned about the future of the Chicago Bears. It appears that noted New York blogger, Julia Allison was seen getting frisky with Bears' new quarterback Jay Cutler. You may remember Jay Cutler from his debacle involving the Denver Broncos. Julia Allison, on the other hand, you probably know from Twitter.
All the blogosphere was abuzz to discover that the rumors were true. A long-time commenter proposed to his favorite, bookmarked blogger; and, blogger accepted, reports Jan Hoffman for the New York Times. But don't be fooled.
