A Teenage Discussion of Amber Cole on Twitter Leads to More No Wedding, No Womb Tension

But he most certainly demanded excellence of us as students and as scholars in the world.

Dr. Goddess Finds Love With Swiffer

You know Dr. Goddess loves good Theater, too….So, imagine my delight when the two came together for me at BlogHer 2011 in San Diego, California! I was at one end of the Proctor & Gamble booth in the Expo Hall when I heard someone say that “the dirt” from the Swiffer commercials was around the corner. I raced over to find the actor, dressed in his hideously wonderful and creative, “Keyboard Guy” dust costume, posing with happy consumers.
