Smart is the New Pretty: Monday Morning Quarterback
Written by: WhyDid | Smart Is the New Pretty

Typically, I reserve these posts for mid-week brain fodder and date commentary, but why not start off your Monday looking and sounding like you did more than shop, imbibe, and snooze this weekend?

Time for lunch.

How To Tuesday: Slice a Pineapple, Smell Like a Kardashian

A couple of weeks ago, supermarkets across the US saw a spike in pineapple sales.  It may have had something to do with a little “science experiment” executed by none other than the Kardashian Krew.  Now, I’m not sure who I’m more disgusted by: them for showcasing such unladylike behavior on national television, or you for buying into it.  Either way, I’ve always been a fan of pineapple and it’s the perfect fruit for summer fetes, but it can appear to be a bit daunting in its native state.  Have no fear, chopping up a pineapple is much easier than one might have guessed and it’s also chocked full of health benefits other than those not suitable, however, still mentioned on TV.

Weekend Playlist: Get Down Tonight
Written by: WhyDid | Weekend Playlist

roller disco partyHere’s a question:  What better way to celebrate a birthday than with a 70′s disco roller skating party?  Answer: There is no better way.  My favorite guest DJ and all around crafty lady, Katie (aka the best friend a girl could ask for), is celebrating her golden birthday this weekend.  No, Kim, that’s nothing even remotely close to a golden shower.  A golden birthday is when you turn your age, say 22, on the day, the 22nd.  Get it?

So, while we are combing out our afros and stretching out our leotards, we’ll be getting in the mood with this 70′s inspired playlist.  And probably drinking a little prosecco too.

Send Katie a little birthday love while you’re at it.

The List Volume 2012
Written by: WhyDid | The List

As the years go by, they seem to pass faster and faster.  I really can’t believe how quickly this year went by.  A good way to revisit and remember 2011 was by going back through all of WhyDid’s posts and choosing my favorites.  I figured it would be pretty easy cause I couldn’t have possibly written more than 12 posts that were awesome… but it proved much more difficult than anticipated.

Throughout the year, we uncovered trends, divulged our dating secrets, re-vamped our closets and poked fun at silly celebrities.  We covered everything from ombre hair to top knots to matzo ball soup to Lana Del Rey.  It was a busy year, yet somehow, some way, I was able to pick out twelve of my favorite posts from this year to ring in 2012.

  1. Do you have a case of the ex?
  2. Don’t you dare grasp for straws.
  3. Can you teach an old dog new tricks?
  4. Remember when you were 18?
  5. Love will come when you least expect it.
  6. How come you don’t do what you love?
  7. Friends come, friends go. Are you my BFFN?
  8. Sex and the City isn’t real life.
  9. Never forget it’s the thought that counts.
  10. Unless, of course, that thought only lasts for the next 72 days.
  11. And of course, I partied in party pants.

What were your favorite posts from 2011?

WhyDid Wisdom: Happily Ever After (Or at least for the next 72 days)
Written by: WhyDid | WhyDid Wisdom

This week’s WhyDid Wisdom is brought to you by the letters, D, U, and H.

So, I don’t like to talk about Kim or the rest of the Kardashian Klan because, well, they drive me KRAZY.  However, the events today leave me with no other choice.  While I saw Kim and Kris (Humphries)’s divorce coming a mile away, as I scrolled through Facebook and Twitter, it seems that some of you knuckleheads are not only surprised, but also upset.  Let me guess, you are the same folks who actually thought this three ring circus and 18 different spin off shows  were “real.”  You were really “rooting” for Kim and Kris, huh?  Well, newsflash, nothing on any of the Kardashian brand “reality” shows is real.  It’s poorly scripted TV.  They are not the Cosby’s and that is not real life.

Luckily, some of you seem to be (finally) getting the wake up call.  One such status update from someone said, “I bet this whole wedding was a PR stunt.”  Oh, wow, somebody call MENSA.  We’ve got a live one.  I’m not trying to be condescending, but come on guys, you didn’t really think this was anything more than an opportunity to trick you, advertisers, and sponsors out of time and money, did you?  Oh… you did.  That’s so sweet.  Well, sugar, face the facts.  You got played.

But don’t feel bad because you know what?  I’m not just annoyed with the American public.  This is a lesson for brands out there everywhere (cough, Vera).  Come on, you should have known better.  Affiliating yourself with something like this is not good for business.  Did you really need to sell out for something as cheap, tawdry, and contrived as a reality TV wedding?  Have some standards.

Sure, some say Kim is a “good businesswoman” but some could also say the same about Bernie Madoff.  Just because they figured out how to make money, doesn’t mean they did it the right way or with even an ounce of integrity.

Here’s the deal.  It’s okay to be pissed off about this, but not because you’re sad that there isn’t going to be another Kim and Kris Making Babies spin off.  It’s okay to be pissed that this family exploited the sacred vows of marriage to make a quick (eighteen million) bucks.  It’s okay to be pissed that NONE of that money was given to charity.  It’s okay to be pissed that our gay and lesbian friends aren’t even allowed to get married in this country.  It’s okay to be pissed that they had the audacity to have a wedding registry.  And it’s most certainly okay to be pissed that such a gauche display of wealth was televised and consumed by so many when there are families in our very own backyards who don’t have enough to pay for groceries this month.

But don’t you dare be pissed and then even think about picking up the remote to watch yet another vapid brain melting morally corrupt episode of “Blah Blah Insert Kardashian Name Here.”  Because if this didn’t teach you a lesson, then you’re just as much to blame for it as Kim.  Without you (and that pesky sex tape), she’d be nothing but a girl selling clothes in the Valley (good one, Kris).
