    Two of the foods that are said to be discontinued. You can still find surge in Europe. Also we have (in Baltimore) waffle crisps in some grocery store chains. I get the all the time.

    i saw several of the articles in glamour online earlier in the week.. you need to stop copying what they post on there (the video of cher, barbie album, the year without mirror).

    Nessa – So glad you liked that post! It’s like we have ESPN or something ;)

    Helvi – Good to know! Surge was the best – nice to know it’s still available somewhere…

    Helene – I know, weren’t his old outfits the best? Ah, memories…

    Nadine – I’m pretty busy editing and working on the business side of the site, but if I get some more free time I’ll definitely consider writing more in the future.

    Mary – We actually didn’t “copy” anyone – The Barbie post has been ALL over the internet this week, as has the year without a mirror post (it was even on the Today show!). Casey, who recommended the Cher video for the list, might have found it through Glamour – I’m not sure – but the other two were definitely a coincidence since they were sent in by two different people.

    I love this site and have been following for about 2 years now and the only thing i am disappointed in is that there are never any articles about girls with short hair. My hair is about chin length and while i am going to grow it out it would still be fun to try some new styles but it seems like there are only one or two ever shown. Not all of us have long hair, but we do all want to try new things! Just hope to see something sometime for us girls with shorter hair.

    Jessica – We have done a post with tips on styling short hair: That said, it’s true, we don’t regularly do short hair-focused posts, mostly because there are so many more styles you can do with longer hair than you can with short specifically. But we’ll definitely keep your suggestion in mind for the months ahead and try to incorporate more short hair tips into our regular hair posts!
