A sign you're a print news geek: A deluge of magazines cascades from your mailbox on a regular basis and several newspapers grace your doorstep every morning. Which is what happens to me. I must stop some of my subscriptions. I can't keep up with them and the 4-5 news sites I skim online every day.
Here are the newspapers and magazines I subscribe to. I know, it's insane. I used to justify it by the fact that I'm a reporter and need to track what others are writing. But this is getting ridiculous. I'm taking suggestions on what to weed out:
The Washington Post
The Wall Street Journal
The New Yorker
U.S. News & World Report
Columbia Journalism Review
National Geographic Traveler
The New Republic
Advice to Washingtonienne: Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Also, use sunscreen, cut down on the booze and late-night partying, get your beauty sleep and drink lots of water. Oh, and stop whoring around. I gaurantee you'll look better within weeks.
If you've seen her photo on the cover of last week's Washington Post magazine, you'll know what I'm talking about. My SO, who is the soul of discretion and tact, glanced at her photo and looked surprised. Then he wondered aloud why so many men wanted to sleep with her. My fiance is the third man I've heard this sentiment from.
"She looks a bit haggard and worn out," he said. He shook his head in disbelief when he found that she's only 26. Or 24, if you believe her.
