Supposedly Details is showing a dramatic rise in ad pages sold due to it's 'much awarded redesign and cheeky bisexual content.' I refuse to believe anyone is buying this hideous and unpleasant magazine. Perhaps they have slashed their rates for ads to attract buyers?

A New York Times reporter spends a day with the five guys from "Gay Eye for the Straight Guy". Always a little tragic to see a free makeover wasted on someone whose never heard of Scoop. I have my doubts about Carson Kressly, whose designated by the show to introduce straight men to better clothing style. All the pictures I've seen suggest he perhaps epitomizes cliches about gay men and fashion a little too well--ascots, embroidered jeans, buckskin shirts, that kind of thing.

I finished Shopaholic Ties the Knot. So I've now read two of the three Sophie Kinsella Shopaholic texts. Although its impressive how everything is resolved in the end, this one doesn't have quite the snap of Confessions of a Shopaholic. Frankly, there isn't enough shopping.

I purchased another pair of shoes over the weekend, a dark brown pair of thin loafers from Reaction for just $40. Although--I only noticed this after I got them home--when did they stop making stuff in Italy? Anyway, they're nice shoes, great price, why am I complaining?
