A Platonic Love Letter to My Bro

http://www.abbyrosedalto.com/2014/04/a-platonic-love-letter-to-my-bro.htmlI've always had a lot of guy friends and right now one of my best friends is a guy. We call each other "bro" and talk almost every day. He knows all my dirty secrets and I trust him 100%. Many people don't really understand our friendship. They either assume we're hooking up (we're not) or that my BFF is gay (he's not) or that one of us is harboring secret feelings (nope). Significant others are sometimes a little suspicious and a lot of our other friends just don't get how - or why - we're so close. Yeah it can be a little weird at times, but in some ways it's actually a better friendship that either of us could have with any same-sex pals. 

And here's why...

The Vampire Diaries: Man Not On Fire

This episode of the Vampire Diaries is entitled "Man on Fire" even though there is no fire whatsoever on this episode. Almost every episode has fire, but this one? Not so much. Of course, the name is a reference to the fire at Whitmore House in 1958 but there wasn't actually a man on fire in that episode, since Damon escaped and Enzo survived, so... yeah. This should be called the Man who Wasn't Actually On Fire.

Okay, I'll admit it. I'm totally mailing it in this week. I admit it. I might actually be losing interest in The Vampire Diaries. It's just getting too fucking stupid. Maybe if they just gave us more scenes of Ian Somerhalder with his shirt off... but nope, instead we get this bullshit:

The Steamiest Dance Sequences

They say that you can judge how someone is in bed, by how they dance... If that's true, then these dancers must be some of the hottest people on earth because these dance sequences are so steamy it's hard to believe they're all from movies that are only rated PG-13 or R.

It's Day 100!

It's Day 100 of  #365feministselfie!!!! For the past 99 days, a lot of people have asked me "what is with all the selfies?"

So I'll explain it one more time...

The idea of posting a selfie a day for an entire year was created by the awesome Veronica Arreola in response to criticism of selfies. (Jezebel.com in particular called them out as being a "cry for help" instead of empowering.)  I can't think of a lot that is more empowering than saying this is me, this is what I look like, here I am! The feminist selfie has become a symbol of self-love and celebrating who you are - finding the beauty in your imperfections, in your flaws.

In honor of the show’s farewell, here’s a look back at some of the best, funniest and most memorable dance moments of the last nine seasons.
