Forever 21 Releases Details of Security Breach

Forever 21 said Thursday it is tightening security efforts at its store cash wraps following its disclosure last month of a breach at some of its U.S. stores.
Details of the security breach, which was first disclosed publicly by the company in November, did not include how many stores within the U.S. were impacted or in what states. The retailer said it is continuing to look at whether any of its overseas stores were impacted since those doors run off of point-of-sale systems different from its domestic locations.
Forever 21 does business in 57 countries via a fleet of more than 815 stores.
The company said encryption technology at some cash registers had been turned off in certain cases and malware installed by criminals looking to mine the system for customer payment data. Forever 21 confirmed the malware was able to access cardholder names in some instances but in most cases was only able to obtain card numbers, expirations and verification codes.
The vulnerability in the system occurred between April 3 and Nov. 18 of this year with each store impacted by the breach subject to varying lengths of exposure ranging from days to the entire April-November period, Forever 21 said. The company’s investigation

Bulgari Celebrates Serpenti Forever Pillar With New Styles

SERPENT’S TALE: Having introduced its new Divas’ Dream handbag aimed at Millennials last season, Bulgari turned the spotlight back to its Serpenti Forever pillar for spring.
Launched in 2011, the snakehead-clasp design has won over celebrities including Kate Moss and Miranda Kerr. This season, it got a makeover from London-based designer Nicholas Kirkwood, who created the line’s first-ever backpack style.
The Rome-based brand celebrated the collaboration with a party attended by Bella Hadid, Lottie Moss and Jasmine Sanders. It hopes to bring on a new guest designer every two or three seasons, according to Mireia Lopez Montoya, managing director of accessories at Bulgari.
“Since quite a few years, we have been attracting younger and younger customers into the brand. Actually, our average age is early 30s,” she noted. “Our inspiration is to really keep Serpenti Forever young and relevant as part of our intention to make this bag our iconic bag for the longer term.”
Among the new options this season is the Pop Heart design, featuring metal studs and arrows. For a seriously upscale alternative, look no further than the python leather versions painted in rainbow hues – each one is guaranteed one-of-a-kind.

These 4 Dogs Have Been Patiently Waiting for More Than a Year for Forever Homes — Adopt Them?

Every pet deserves a warm bed and an even warmer hug.

Unfortunately, there are countless pets in this world that are homeless and yearning to make a human’s life better. Shelter and rescues like Best Friends Animal Society, the largest no-kill animal organization in the country, help many of these cats, dogs and other critters find that forever home, providing them with the medical care, attention and diets they need until that happens.

This magical moment of “finding their human” occurs at different times for every pet. Some are only in the shelter for one day, but others are left to patiently wait for months, sometimes even years.

In honor of Adopt a Shelter Pet Day we want to highlight four superb canines that have been living with Best Friends for more than one year, hoping to find their forever. Maybe their wait is almost over.

Duke

“Handsome Duke is looking for a kingdom to reign over. This noble shepherd/Chow Chow mix is well-mannered and super smart. Duke likes to spend his time running around, playing, hoping for ear scratches and napping in his very own fashion: upside down, feet straight up to the sky. Duke is great with most other dogs and such a sweetie. He’d be a fabulous companion for any big dog lover,” gushed his current caretakers. 

If you think this active gentleman is for you, contact Best Friends Animal Society – Los Angeles at (818) 643-3989. 

Nina

Best Friends says, “Pretty Nina is a fun, active gal and the perfect exercise pal. She loves long walks, hikes and play time in the yard. Nina adores people and can play nicely with most other large dogs, too. She was recently in a foster home and was described as: ‘An absolute star! Nina’s an energetic, affectionate 75-pound lap dog.’ This special girl is so ready to be your best friend.” 

To learn more about this large lap dog, contact Best Friends Animal Society – Los Angeles at (818) 643-3989. 

Tyler

Best Friends describes 2-year-old Tyler as a young, lovable retriever mix that is smart, playful and super active. And he’s a smarty-pants who already knows sit, down and give paw! He has been in an amazing foster home with a trainer who is teaching him extra manners and commands so he can be your ideal companion. Tyler loves learning new things and going for long walks in the park. Tyler is a typical busy-body teenager and is looking for someone who shares his zest for life and is happy to help him work on his training. He loves other dogs but can be a little too wacky and wild for some.

If Tyler sounds like a perfect fit for your home, contact Best Friends Animal Society – New York (347) 762-3678.

Churchill

Churchill is a man of simple pleasures. This American bulldog mix just wants your love, some yummy treats and the occasional belly rub. Churchill takes a little extra time to warm up to new people, but with some extra TLC and patience (and treats!) he’ll be your bro, too. He’s got the most ridiculous and adorable underbite that makes him look like a character from Lord of the Rings. And he has the sweetest brown eyes. Churchill has also decided that he’s all the dog that anybody should really need and prefers to be the only dog in his home.

To become Churchill’s human, contact Best Friends Animal Society – New York (347) 762-3678.

Your Living Family Tree: Keeping your family together forever through print, photos, sound, and video

Your Living Family Tree: Keeping your family together forever through print, photos, sound, and video


A Living Family Tree-Starting Today! You know what a regular family tree is. A fact sheet that goes back until your roots disappear or they have been eaten by a wild pig. They’re great to read to see if knighthood or dukedom is in your blood-or if a horse thief hangs from a stout branch! But what if you could create a new, growing tree that started right now, expanded for 100 or 1000 years, and drew every one of your living relatives-plus those yet to live-into a warm, tightly-bound clan? You can. You have almost every tool at hand because of the extraordinary electronic revolution we are experiencing. It’s the 21st century, the miracle era of easy and inexpensive digital preservation. Time to get three-dimensional! Include the old-fashioned family tree but why not start collecting the actual words, voices, and actions (almost the souls) of every mem-ber of your living family through sound, jpgs, podcasts, videos, and digital writing? Most important, almost everything can be stored at a family website, to be instantly enjoyed by your cousin cross country or your great-grandson’s daughter 60 or 260 years from now, after she’s born and is looking back for inspiration or to see what her ancestors (that’s you!) did and thought. That’s about as close to magic as we can get-and you (or somebody in your present family) can make it happen! This book gives you step-by-step, how-to details, written by a straightforward, funny non-techie! “This book is a must read for anyone interested in preserving their personal history for future generations.” Tamara Lipori, author of A PSRO Guide to Scrapbook Retailing Gordon Burgett has written 36 published books (plus 1700+ freelance articles) and has offered 2000+ paid spoken presentations. His family tree includes one knight (Sir Lancelot) and seven knaves. In part, he created the “living family tree” concept to help his kin grow better branches. Why else? See www.

These Photos Will Make You Want To Put Your Phone Down Forever

It looks like smartphones really have killed the concept of “idle time.”

Last year, photographer Babycakes Romero captured an array of images showing people glued to their mobile devices when they could otherwise be having a conversation, enjoying dinner or simply staring into space. The series, titled “The Death of Conversation,” was published on Bored Panda and ultimately led to a TEDx Talk this Tuesday.

In the time that’s passed since he first published the photo series, Romero says the smartphone problem — as he sees it — has only gotten worse.

“As smartphones encompass more and more of people’s lives everyone is turning to them more and more as every aspect of their existence has been digitized and made accessible to them 24/7,” Romero told The Huffington Post via email.

You’ve probably noticed something like this in your own life: You’re at dinner with someone, there’s a lull in the conversation, and suddenly both of you are checking your smartphones. Romero says the devices become an excuse to hide a “lost connection” between people.

“It is sad that this technology which was supposed to connect people is making them disconnect from each other in person,” Romero told HuffPost.

Agree or not, his photos offer pretty striking evidence that people everywhere are hooked on their smartphones. Take a look for yourself:

Forever Young: Rock and Roll As the Antidote to Aging

2015-06-23-1435073354-1147303-guitarman.jpg

A few weeks ago I was visiting a friend in Los Angeles who had recently retired after a lifetime of working in the music industry. Before my visit I had spotted her in a documentary film about an iconic recording session in the 1980s with some of the top names in the business. When we met for coffee, I complemented her on how she hadn’t changed since then. After comparing notes on old friends, the decline of society and our current situations we agreed that rock music was still a vital element in our lives and how the music managed to transcend generations. And more importantly, it had the quality to keep us young.

A recent article in the Huffington Post illustrated how musical tastes become fixed by the time one reaches the end of their twenties. Which for a lot of the older public means that bands like Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones are the musical markers from their youth. There is now even a whole genre of music and a weekly radio show called ‘dad rock’ to deliver to these fans the music they want to hear. With a label like that, Generation X, Y and Z are sometimes turned off as it implies easy listening, parental values and people stuck in the past, but in fact, the music appears on their iDevice playlists nonetheless.

So if ones music tastes are fixed in their twenties, does that mean every time you hear a song from that stage in your life those memory cells are activated? Do our thoughts turn to more simple times and our DNA tingles with a youthful charge? Is the mental flexibility and openness of our youth reawakened, while the idealistic values of those times are remembered?
And for today’s generation — do they find the music interesting, antique or somehow relevant the same way a generation ago, jazz music held a certain magic but is now quasi-classic?

In contemporary music there is a lot of awareness of songs from the dad generation in the sampling of snippets of songs from the 70s and 80s. Artists like Puff Daddy (or whatever incarnation he goes by now) won a Grammy award with a song borrowing from that 80’s band the Police, with I’ll Be Missing You. Even Pharrell Wiliams number one song Blurred Lines had to recently pay millions in royalties for appropriating from a Marvin Gaye song from the 70’s. And one of my favorites homages to old time rock and roll is Kid Rock’s summer anthem All Summer Long where he uses two songs from the ’70s, starting with Werewolves in London and morphing into Sweet Home Alabama.

In my novel Coast Highway, a Romeo and Juliet story set in the 1970s Silicon Valley (released this fall), I reference sixty-two different bands and songs, which I have turned into Spotify and YouTube playlists. Trolling through all the versions of songs, concert footage and MTV videos from those times was a nostalgic trip for me down memory lane that put a smile on my face. Some of the videos were so campy you would think they were a Saturday Night Live comedy act, when in fact it was the style of the times. And this summer a lot of fashion houses are pushing hippie couture complete with bell-bottom jeans. The past is reinvented again and again.

An unbelievable number of older acts are touring these days with the dubious label dinosaur rock attached to particularly grey haired performers. Last year Fleetwood Mac was on the road again and my son had bought me a ticket to one of their shows as a birthday present. The old rockers played close to three hours non-stop and generated such a high energy level that even my son was impressed. It was surprising, considering he is more used to semi-underground bands from the States. The audience was an even mix of ‘dad rockers’ and people from their teens upwards. The band had become iconic and as living legends became a ‘must see’ act.

The British journalist Malcolm Muggeridge once said:

‘The pursuit of happiness, which American citizens are obliged to undertake, tends to involve them in trying to perpetuate the moods, tastes and aptitudes of youth.’

If Malcolm was correct, then not only the dad rockers looking to remain forever young but the younger generation curious about the magical elixir rock and roll offers should give the music and more in-depth listen. Perhaps it will give them a double dose of youthful energy with an unexpected depth.
So if good old rock and roll is alive and well in our music channels and individual playlists, then why try to categorize it as dad rock, which is generally seen as a critical designation implying premature senility with a well-developed dose of tinnitus. So lets skip the labels, get rocking and knock a few years off our lives.

Forever Bleeker Street, Forever Young

In 1961, at 17 years old, I moved into a floor thru pink brownstone on the corner of Bleeker and Jones Street in the West Village of New York City. It was heaven. There were cozy woodsy cafe houses on every street corner, The Figaro, The Fat Black Pussycat, The Gaslight Cafe. They were filled with college students listening to a brand new sound, folk singing.

2015-06-15-1434333442-8015691-image.jpeg

The small Bleeker Street shops were stocked with goods from other folksy artists, either designing beatnick clothing, African ethnic jewelry or middle eastern patchwork home furnishings, including mirrored pillows and bongo drums. The Look was changing from sleek 50’s post modern to a new Look called WHATEVER …..as long as it shakes and sparkles. Everything in these shops (now called “boutiques), looked and felt brand new with a new vibe, a vibe that sang of love, of freedom, and a vibe that reeked of sex.

The Village and it’s cool inhabitants had also just discovered marajuana, that we all called POT.

Dylan Thomas, Jack Kerouac, William de Kooning all hung out at the Cedar Street Tavern on University Place picking up all the wistful, young, long haired girls. Woody Allen and Lenny Bruce, performed at the Cafe Wha while picking up all the busty NYU literary scholars they could handle. Bob Dylan, still Bobby Zimmerman, sang at the Cafe Wha and I passed the hat for him and Fred Neil, our singer songwriter star ( who had launched Dylan).

2015-06-15-1434333544-5747521-image2.jpeg

I attended Parsons School of Design launching a brand, Fonssagrives -Tiel with my future partner, Mia Fonssagrives. My coffeehouse name was Peaches La Tour, a name given to me by Steve De Naut, my Cafe Wha folk singing sweetheart. Steve was the father of future actress Rosanna Arquette, then Lisa De Naut. To catch his eye I created see thru lace mini dresses, crochet tops and wrap skirts all styles that are sold again today in the Bleeker St shops.

2015-06-15-1434334029-7808069-image3.jpeg

In my pink brownstone I also sewed and sold fringed suede vests, skirts and handbags with my 6 inch fringe often beaded. The artists and folk singers I met in the cafés bought my clothes, especially my black or forrest green skin tight leather pants. Every which way you turned you felt you were in the center of the happening universe. The boring” Father Knows Best” fifties were a thing of the past.

Today in 2015 at 71, both my age numbers and myself have reversed. I have returned once again to live near Bleeker St but in the the East Village, not the West Village and after spending 45 years in the posh upper east side on E 63rd St making custom gowns for VIP’s at Bergdorf Goodman, I once again am wandering the streets that so inspired me at 17. I prefer the East side as my beloved Cafe Figaro is now an ice cream chain.

I stay today in NYC with my dear Parsons classmate artist, Mary Alice Orito, who was just named President of NAWA, the oldest association of women artists. In 1961 Mary Alice worked at Margaret Moore on 8th st selling hippy chic jewelry, while a student, a block away from my brownstone my hippy-home-brick walled shop.

QUELLE COINCIDENCE…suddenly sixties and seventies fashion is back in Vogue and back downtown and so am I, and so is Mary Alice.

Our favorite hangout today is Agozar a Cuban cafe on 324 Bowery on the corner of Bleeker St in the East Village. Not only is it an outdoor people watching heaven, it also has Tapas to perfection and it has the city’s best Piña Colata, topped sky high with toasted coconut. We can sit for two hours and see all of the cities fashion finest. In my youth the Bowery was a no-no, a no-go.

2015-06-15-1434334094-6449764-image4.jpeg

Fine Art had moved across town to the East Village and Bleeker St now houses one of the cities best contemporary galleries, Zurcher Gallery, at 33 Bleeker. They hold a mini art fair twice a year. The gallery is also also in Paris.

In the posh West Village under the Highline uptown artists and their expensive galleries have moved downtown from 57th st and escaped the high dollar rents which had made newly discovered artists unaffordable. Now galleries are moving across town to the East Village allowing even more unknown creative artists to display their work.

Salon Zurcher had a fabulous show highlighted by the Benischek Giant Levi Jacket, called “New Day Rising”. It caught my eye.

2015-06-15-1434334766-87633-image5.jpeg

The blue jean, is the only item of clothing worn nonstop from the sixties until today. Brad Benischek, a New Orleans artist, whose work will then be featured in Brooklyn at David Dixon’s Cathouse FUNeral Gallery is a man after my heart combining fashion and art.

If you are to buy only one item today on Bleeker St, it has to be a sixties brown floppy hat. The place to go is City Hats on 63 Bleeker St. No other item so captures the feeling of the Bleeker St vibe then a floppy brown hat, be it summer or winter the hat said it all, we were easy breezy, we were cool.

2015-06-15-1434334241-8088150-image6.jpeg

2015-06-15-1434334298-1165418-image7.jpeg

Vicky Tiel began designing clothes 40 years ago in Paris and still owns a boutique there. See Vicky and her new collection on HSN and online. Her couture is available at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus, and her perfumes are carried in Perfumania. Her memoir, It’s All About the Dress: What I Learned in 40 Years About Men, Women, Sex and Fashion was published by St. Martin’s Press in August 2011.

Check out what we found in Forever 21’s Branded Shop.

Blessed Are the Meek Open-Knit Midi Dress, $ 180, forever21.com

According to a brand spokesperson, the Forever 21 shop-in-shop experience launched in November 2014 (quietly, we might add) with approximately 20 non-Forever 21 labels. To date, there are currently more than 100—and more to follow. They range from more well-known names such as Dolce Vita, Ban.do, and Happy Socks, to up-and-coming brands like Amber Sceats, Rise of Dawn, and Clashist.

While Forever 21 isn’t the first brand to make retail partnerships work—J.Crew’s In Good Company collective started back in 2007 and Target launched a limited partnership with brands called The Shops at Target in 2012—it is interesting to see the company diversify its offerings past what we’ve known for almost 20 years.

You don’t have to be a book-lover to fall in love with this pawsitively furry library.

At the Doña Ana County Government Center in New Mexico, there is a “cat library” where employees can “check out” a feline to play with while at work.

kitties
The “cat library.”

Though the program has been around for about three years, Tiffany Tillison, one of the employees, recently posted a picture of the adorable concept to Reddit, where it quickly went viral with more than 5,500 upvotes as of Friday. And while the cat library seems like a pet lover’s dream-come-true, it also serves a greater purpose: to raise awareness about shelter animals and help get the cats adopted.

“Most animal shelters are out of the way outside of towns (usually outside the city limits), so you have to really be thinking of adopting an animal to take the trouble to go over there,” Tillison told Buzzfeed. “But with this program, hundreds of people come through our lobby every day, so they can’t miss seeing them!”

The county works with the Animal Service Center of the Mesila Valley to get the cats, and according to the shelter’s director, Dr. Beth Vesco-Mock, using the library is simple. Her shelter brings kittens to hang out in “kitty kondo” — the office’s cat play area — and employees can then take a cat back to their desks to play with and return them once they’re finished. The shelter director says that the program benefits both the cats, some of which have special needs, and the workers.

“[The kittens] run around and they get socialized,” Vesco-Mock says. “And it helps reduce stress in the office and in the cubicles.”

Many of the kittens get adopted by employees who just can’t get enough of the little furballs. When all the cats get forever homes, the shelter sends down a new crop of furry friends. About 100 felines have found new families because of the program, Vesco-Mock said.

Meow, can we paw-lease get one of those at our office?!

Our Forever Home

Our Forever Home


Enter the world of the Cozy Red Barn. Inside the barn is family of animals all coming together under one roof in diversity with love, warmth, good food, kindness and shelter, the basic necessities of life. No matter where the animals originally came from, and in their quest to live in harmony and safety, they find themselves in blended family of acceptance. The story is narrated by a Mexican migrant mouse family. Under the hot Texas sun, they fall asleep in a tomato crate after a hard day’s work picking vegetables. When they awaken, they find themselves bouncing around in a truck on a long journey, a journey that takes them far away from their Mexican home into the deep woods of Pennsylvania. Meet the Gonzales mouse family: Francisco, his wife Pilar, and their two children Pepito and Rosita. They arrive at the Cozy Red Barn, nestled amongst the Pennsylvania countryside, which is inhabited by a family of animals-horses, goats, cats, dogs, and even peacocks-lovingly cared for by owners Suzy and Karl. Here the Gonzales family must adapt to their new surroundings and learn about these strange, new animals they have never seen before.

The Problem With These Forever 21 Shirts

A video on Buzzfeed prompted me to check out Forever21’s website. I am way over the age of being allowed to set foot inside the physical store, but the video gave women’s reactions to some of their graphic t-shirts and I had to know what all the fuss was about.

What I discovered was an array of shirts which seem to be painting young girls as sexualized, uncaring, insensitive and dim-witted buffoons. I am appalled at some of the slogans being marketed towards young women. Below are just a few that turned my WTF meter to 11.

2015-05-15-1431671242-7471944-killscreativity.jpg

So, either you can be creative or you can be in love. Really? Turn on the radio, read a poem, watch a movie and it is clearly evident that love can actually propel creativity to new heights. Seriously — what does this mean?

2015-05-15-1431671290-2468336-actuallyreallysmart.jpg

The subtext being, “But you wouldn’t know that by how I dress.” I guess smart girls can’t wear crop tops. Sorry, ladies who express their personalities through fashion — if you want to be taken seriously, you better don a muumuu.

2015-05-15-1431671325-3344039-troublemaker.jpg

This cute script says “Trouble Maker.” Why should young girls ever consider being a troublemaker, let alone advertise it? This is a clear play on teenagers’ need for acceptance and feeling like if they’re the “bad girl,” they’ll be respected or popular.

2015-05-15-1431671364-4643114-risque.jpg

Risqué: adjective. “Slightly indecent or liable to shock, especially by being sexually suggestive.” Because that’s a message that should be marketed to young women.

2015-05-15-1431671410-5846034-gross.jpg

This one confounds me. Is the wearer saying she’s gross, or that the person reading it is gross? I know this is supposed to be cute or something, but I just don’t get it.

2015-05-15-1431671450-8833417-fancylittlenumber.jpg

I believe the defense of this shirt is that the clothing itself is the fancy little number — like the new little black dress or something. But come on. Is anyone going to look at, or buy, the shirt with that intention? Absolutely not.

2015-05-15-1431671507-1712780-ionlydidittogetlikes.jpg

“Likes” = love. False love. Ladies should not be told, even inadvertently, that doing things for “likes” is a worthy reason to do things.

2015-05-15-1431671546-7668534-dontwantfeelingswantnewclothes.jpg

Our teenage years are full of hormone surges and complicated feelings that no amount of shopping can — or should — replace.

2015-05-15-1431671582-3563327-kissmeidareyou.jpg

Sexualization and aggression all wrapped up in one black shirt. That’s exactly what I’d want my 15-year-old telling the world.

2015-05-15-1431671626-3045658-feedmetellmepretty.jpg

Evidently, the way to a teenager’s heart is with a burger and a compliment on her exterior beauty. No need to tell her she’s smart or creative or inspirational. Nope. Just “pretty” with a side of fries will do.

2015-05-15-1431671685-7172684-noonecares.jpg

The pièce de resistance. This was my mantra through my angsty teen years when all I wanted was for someone to tell me they did care about me. Now, young women can just wear this shirt to divert everyone’s attention from the fact they really need someone to listen to them.

I understand these shirts are meant to be cute and trendy, ironic and funny, but they just make me sad that my daughter is growing up in a society where young women’s insecurities are being preyed upon for the all mighty dollar. It’s just wrong and unconscionable and flat-out disturbing. Shame on you, Forever21.

‘How I Met Your Mother’ Series Finale Recap: ‘Last Forever’

“Last Forever” confirmed our worst fears. The hour-long “How I Met Your Mother” series finale proved the conspiracy theorists right. The mother, whose name we found out was Tracy McConnell, was dead at the end of the episode. By the time Ted told his children the story, she had been dead for six years, victim of a “sickness,” during which Ted loved her very, very much.

Blergh.

It was a moment fans saw coming, but the nail in the mother’s coffin (sorry, I had to) came after Ted revealed she died. In the final moments, Ted’s kids convinced him to call Robin to ask her on a date. It’s been six years, they said. It’s okay to move on from Mom. Seriously. He then showed up outside her apartment with that blue French horn. About halfway through the finale, folks on Twitter started to notice the hints: Robin and Barney got divorced (we’ll come back to this), Robin had a too-cute run-in with Ted and his daughter on the street and she told Lily that Ted was the guy she should have married. It fit together. It was the best, but also very much the worst.

Backing up a bit, the finale raced through the years between Barney and Robin’s wedding and present day. Within the first 15 minutes, we found out Barney and Robin got divorced three years after their wedding. Her career as a news anchor took off quickly and she began jet-setting around the world. Barney’s blog suffered. They got drunk in Argentina, had a lot of sex, got sober and decided to split up. Robin slowly, and unconsciously, was pushed out of “the gang.”

Barney went back to his old ways. There was a Playbook II, which involved “The Mannequin” and “The Jim Nacho.” He then embarked on a perfect month, banging 31 girls in 31 days, until number 31 got pregnant and had baby girl Ellie. In a moving scene, Barney said to the baby, “You are the love of my life. Everything I have and everything I am is yours forever.”

Lily became pregnant with their third child and she and Marshall finally decided to leave the old apartment. In an epic Halloween/ Goodbye Apartment party, she dressed up as a white latex whale and had one of the most dramatic scenes of the episodes in said outfit. (Major ups to Alyson Hannigan for this one.) At the party, Robin showed up, but clearly hadn’t seen the gang in months, if not years. She left in a fit, after seeing everyone together, and broke down “the gang” for Lily. “It’s just never going to be how it was,” she said. “It can’t be. It doesn’t have to be a sad thing.” And that’s true of all relationships.

himym finale

Ted and Tracy waited seven years to get married. There was no rush because an extraordinary, happy life just got in the way. Marriage had been the ultimate goal for Ted all along: Meet the right woman, get married, have kids. Switching up the order, but portraying a committed, loving relationship without the ring right away, rocked. It showed Ted’s growth and proved their love wasn’t centered around a wedding (though a French castle could have been nice), or one single moment. Instead it was based on millions of little moments, and a life they created with one another.

As series finales go, this one will probably go down as one of the heartbreakers. They killed the mother! I repeat, they killed the mother! After the finale aired, I stopped by a friend’s going-away party and left soon after arriving, explaining that I had to finish recapping a very confusing hour of television. When someone asked how the show ended, admitting they hadn’t seen an episode in years, I said, “The mother dies.” Everyone burst out laughing, as if I had been the victim of a bad joke. My guess is because that’s not how “HIMYM” was supposed to end, according to the first few seasons. “That’s so f*cked up!” my roommate — who also hadn’t watched the show in years — yelled at our TV when she saw Cristin Milioti lying in the hospital bed.

But life is cruel, as it has always been to Ted, and Tracy McConnell died.

It wasn’t the happy ending we thought we were promised when Carter Bays and Craig Thomas set out to tell the story of how Ted Mosby met his children’s mother. To viewers, it was supposed to be a story about finding your one true love in a messy, mysterious city, filled with best burgers and stripper versions of yourself. But instead, it was a story they wanted to tell, one we never see on TV. The whole nine seasons became one long tale about moving on from loss, accepting growth in pain, the reality of friends drifting apart and the negation of “one true loves.” Ted didn’t have one true love. He had two, maybe more. May we all be so lucky.

But, they never solved the pineapple incident. Just saying.

Some Stray Thoughts …

  • Robin’s hair. WTF was going on with Robin’s hair in the present day? That bob was not doing anyone any favors.
  • A+ return of the cockamouse.
  • Ted’s “ET” goodbye to Lily at the wedding was the only moment to make me cry. Anybody else?
  • That last sonofabitch was used very wisely.
  • Supreme Fudge trended on Twitter. That ruled.
  • Alyson Hannigan is a gift to TV, if only because of that whale costume.
  • One last “Murder Train” song for the road.
  • Hate to break it to Marshall but, Gazzola’s in Chicago closed in Season 5. No one would eat that crap again.
  • Ted’s “gray” hair was most certainly blue.

Always and Forever

Always and Forever


When the going gets tough… In the Irish town of Carrickwell, with its lush, endlessly rolling hills and authentic country tranquility, three women’s lives are anything but calm. There’s Mel, a compulsively ambitious mother/publicity manager at a high-powered PR firm — living proof that balancing motherhood and a full-time job is no walk in the park. The hot-headed, indomitable Cleo, just out of college with a degree in hotel management, would like nothing better than to modernize and revive her family’s dwindling hotel — but faces a constant battle with her old-fashioned parents. And finally, there’s the stylish, sweet-tempered Daisy, a self-consciously curvy fashion buyer for an upscale clothing boutique, who has been struggling — and longing — to have a baby with her absolutely perfect boyfriend. Although unconnected, these three women have one thing in common: they all need a break from their stressful lives. …these tough gals hit the nearest spa! So each one sets out for a little R & R at the new Clouds Hill spa, built by an American woman with her own secret turmoil. It is there that Mel, Cleo, and Daisy meet — their worlds and troubles colliding — forming an intimate bond that helps them to realize what matters most in life, always and forever.
