Friday, January 31, 2014 Guest Edit: A Valentine’s Day “How To” by Alexi Wasser
I’m Boy Crazy‘s Alexi Wasser
Listen, we all know Valentine’s Day is a bogus, made up holiday created by the greeting card industry to make money…. But who the fuck cares?! Stop being such a judgey emo kill-joy! It’s here, it exists, we’ve all entered this unspoken agreement as a society to go along with it, so just shut the fuck up and embrace it! After all, it’s an excuse to get gifts, give gifts, and over indulge in sex/chocolate/pink/and red! Let’s celebrate it!
What I still don’t understand is why mistletoe hasn’t made the obvious crossover into Valentine’s Day. What a mistake. Mistletoe isn’t utilized enough during Christmas even. I can never even really find it! But that’s neither here nor there! Back to Valentine’s Day – which I’ve noticed is mispronounced left and right as “Valen-TIME’s day.” WTF?! It reminds me of the time Kim Kardashian (who I don’t even dislike) mispronounced the name of HER OWN FRAGRANCE – calling it ‘VuLUMPtuous’ instead ‘Vuluptuos.’ Who are these people?! What happened to us? And on a side note, not having to do with Valentine’s Days AT ALL—but just a grammatical error that pisses me off beyond belief—is when people sai “I could care less.” It’s “COUNDN’T care less” NOT “COULD care less.” The point of the saying is: you care SO LITTLE, you COULDN’T possible care less! But I digress, back to Valentine’s day and you:
Contrary to what society rams down your throat, Valentine’s Day ISN’T just for couples. It can be enjoyed in a multitude of ways by anyone with a pulse and privates. The following is my guide to celebrating Valentine’s day no matter how much of a winner or loser you might feel like, no matter what your predicament/situation/condition.
And always remember, no matter what you do this Valentine’s Day, no matter who you’re with: I LOVE YOU!

Wednesday, January 22, 2014 Guest Edit: Lunches: With Bethany Cosentino And Niki Takesh
Is it mid-January yet? Thank glob the holidays are dead and buried, and we have all some time to breathe. I spent this NYE a lot different than usual. I was sober at a wedding in NorCal, so I was spared from having to already hate 2014 before it truly even started like the rest of you. I woke up on January 1 feeling juuuuusssstttt fine. Every new year starts with illusions of what the next 12 months may bring, but every race to our resolution is temporarily stunted while we begin the daunting first task of trying to part with the hangover haze.
