Apparently the text outputs for the New York Times and Cosmo were mixed up on the 17th. Next month, confused Cosmo readers everywhere are going to be raising their eyebrows at a cover story entitled “Self-Proclaimed Freedom Fighter Charged in Killings of 18 Iraqi Soldiers.” I have come to this conclusion after reading the recent hard-hitting Times article, “Questions Couples Should Ask (Or Wish They Had) Before Marrying.” It features gems like:
1) Have we discussed whether or not to have children, and if the answer is yes, who is going to be the primary care giver?
3) Have we discussed our expectations for how the household will be maintained, and are we in agreement on who will manage the chores?
7) Will there be a television in the bedroom?
11) Do we value and respect each otherís parents, and is either of us concerned about whether the parents will interfere with the relationship?
12) What does my family do that annoys you?
Sure, these are good questions to ask, but if you need a piece in the Times New York Times Weddings & Celebrations section to tell you this, you may want to consider counseling before tying the knot.
But, hell, it’s the holidays. Who cares what the stodgy old dodgers at the Times think. I want to look at fabulous handmade jewelry, like that crafted by Erica Weiner. She uses scavenged and vintage materials, as well as baubles she collects on her travels, to create whimsical and imaginative necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. The descriptions on her site are fabulous as they give a clue into the origins of the materials she used to create each piece.
