What We Missed (And some early birthday wishes)

Our gal Courtney’s birthday isn’t until tomorrow, but since we won’t be posting until the new year I wanted to make sure she still got some serious birthday love. Anyone who has ever met Courtney knows that she is probably one of the most genuine, warm, amazing women you will ever meet. She also is not adverse to potentially embarrassing herself in the name of friendship (see above and here), which makes her pretty much the coolest person ever. So please leave your lovely b-day wishes for C in comments.

Now for something completely different…

Sarah Thomas, one of five women who officiate major college football, became the first woman to official a bowl game when she worked the Little Caesars Bowl on Saturday.

Apparently women can tell if dudes are into them by the smell of their sweat. Now that’s a study I wouldn’t want to be a participant of…

There may be a stroke risk for older women on anti-depressants.

Rihanna has been told to “cover up” for a New Year’s Eve’s concert in Abu Dhabi.

This isn’t a new article, but can I just say I kinda heart Rashida Jones?

See ya next year, feministas!

FYI: We won’t be moderating comments until the new year, so please be patient if your comment is held up in the queue.  Even feminist bloggers need a vacation every now and then.

    I met Courtney at a presentation related to her book Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters and I can’t agree more. She was a great speaker and seemed like such a passionate, warm person. She has a quotation on my facebook favorite quotes spot too…Happy Birthday, Courtney!

    The article on sweat linked itself to what is turning out to be a fascinating detailing of how smells (and stuff we don’t know we are smelling) affects our behavior.

    Any dame that will sniff a boner dollar for the camera is aces in my book. Love ya, Court. Happy 3-0!

    God, I adore Rashida Jones – and the Monty Python reference I’m hoping you were going for with the transition line.
