booksIf you’re the proud owner of a home library—as in, a room dedicated solely to the filing, display, and reading of books—you’re rare. Most of us will never have that grand room that the Beast unveiled to Belle in Disney’s Beauty & the Beast, which has caused unreasonable expectations in young girls since 1991 and created a next-to-impossible standard for men to live up to.

home-gymThe Holidays are over and beach season is just around the corner. The only problem is you’re still carrying around those extra holiday pounds. One of your New Year’s resolutions was to get back in shape, but the gym is a mile away, and it’s always so crowded, and everyone there looks so good; and then there were the NFL playoffs, the Super Bowl, and the Stanley Cup is gonna start soon, and… Besides, exercise is good for your heart, right?
