The dwindling, Great Depression-era economy has forced the state of Maine to be Practical Polly's about this whole gay marriage fiasco. Money talks, folks. Big time. And The Williams Institute of Law in Los Angeles, CA thinks the state could earn $60 million in a three years. So where exactly is this $60 million coming from?

Margaret says "Labeling other people's reactions to you as "good to me" or "bad to me" allows you to take everything someone does personally." Rather realize their best isn't good enough and move on.
A new invention called the BlowGuard promises to "take the 'job" out of blowjob." But really, it just seems to take the fun out of oral fun.
While we can't all be somewhere festive for Mardi Gras, why not channel the indulgent nature of the day (mardi gras is French for "fat tuesday," after all) and plan an impromptu date to celebrate your partner or find a new date among the festivities.
It's definitely not the type of light and airy chat you want to strike up on your first starry-eyed date.
