  • How precious is your hair?

    Posted on 02/20/2010 by Mary

    I have come to believe that there are two types of people in this world: those who safeguard their hair like a precious resource (a resource they happen to wear up near their face, every day, all the time, in front of everyone, and therefore would prefer not to take risks with), and those who are like "whatever, it grows back."

    (Kitty from That '70s Show is sort of like a type 1 who gets forced into type 2 behavior because she loves Laurie too much -- remember that ep when she let Laurie cut her hair for cosmetology school?

    I think I'm more of a type 2 myself, hence a few shaved heads over the years (and yes, it did indeed grow back... though the grow-out interim was a b-word.) In some cases it has served me well (being willing to take a cosmetic risk that totally paid off) and in other cases... it has served me less well.

    How 'boutchoo?

  • Could you live with your best friend?

    Posted on 02/03/2010 by Lisa

    Let's talk about the "Hyde Moves In" episode of That '70s Show, and the one immediately after it, "The Good Son," where Eric starts to get annoyed at having Hyde at his house all the time.

    Let's consider the facts:

    * Hyde's mom ran away with a trucker, so he has nowhere else to go.
    * Hyde does lots of Eric's chores for him.
    * Hyde lives in the basement, so it's not like Eric has to share a room with him. (btw, this totally reminds me of when Manny lived in Emma's basement on Degrassi -- what's up with TeenNick and basement friends? )

    If you were in Eric's situation, do you think you could handle having your best friend around all the time? Or would it completely ruin the friendship?

  • I ♥ Roller Disco

    I love the "Roller Disco" episode of That '70s Show. The outfits Jackie and Fez wear make me want to roller skate my way through life.

    I haven't been roller skating in years, but I just did a search for the nearest roller rinks. I wonder how many lessons I'd have to take to be as good as Jackie...

  • What are your thoughts on hunting?

    Posted on 01/06/2010 by Mary

    On the "Hunting" episode of That '70s Show, Red likes hunting; Eric misses on purpose, and Fez is not so into the dead deer "staring into his soul." Which one would you be? Have you ever been hunting? Do you think it's cruel, natural, or what?

  • Dating Exercise: 3 Questions for Your Future Boyfriend/Girlfriend

    Posted on 12/16/2009 by Mary

    There's an ep of That '70s Show where Jackie gives Kelso a quiz to figure out if she should get back together with him (what kind of career he's planning, whether he would still love her if she were bald, etc...).

    So! How 'bout a completely random dating exercise:

    If you were facing a roomful of attractive people and had to pick one of them to be your next bf/gf, but you could only ask everyone the same three questions to figure out who you wanted, what three questions would you ask?

    Post your Qs in the comments!

  • How do you want yr "You've been cheated on?"

    Posted on 12/05/2009 by Mary

    The eps of That '70s Show where Kelso is an idiot and loses Jackie made me wonder,

    What is the "best" way to find out your bf/gf is cheating:
    a) Catching them -- so there's no confusion about what the truth is.
    b) Hearing about it from a friend -- so that cheating scum doesn't get to see you cry.
    c) A confession from your bf/gf -- so you don't have that image burned on your eyeballs, and they're kind of showing remorse? A little? And maybe you could forgive them?
    d) Other... please describe.

  • Eric and Donna get BUSTED!

    Posted on 11/28/2009 by Mary

    KLASSIC episode of That '70s Show on tonight at 3:30 am (what, you're gonna be asleep? Weak. It's Saturday night!) It's the one where Eric and Donna get 100% busted -- clothes free -- in the Vista Cruiser.

    For all our sakes, I hope nothing close to that has ever happened to you, but... what's the worst parental "BUSTED" you've ever suffered? 'Fess up in the comments.
