Janna

I grew up in South Haven, Michigan.  Gotta love the lakeshore! Still feel a yearning for the beach, pretty much daily.  Moved to Grand Rapids to go to Calvin College. Fell in love with GR and have been here since! (Go Beer City, USA!)   Big fan of crime TV, the '90s (scrunchies! Saved By the Bell!), my own rude and feisty cat, the beach (you may have thought I covered that already, but I really really love it, OK?), reading,  people watching, drinking on patios, playing the most inappropriate cards in Cards Against Humanity, and my dear, dear family.

Be a Better “Flirtexter”: How to Decode Cryptic Guy Texts

Flipping through the latest issue of Cosmo, I was thrilled to come across this graphic decoding confusing texts guys send.  There are times  I just stare at my phone going "Ummm...WTF?" For example, A guy I'm text-dating (yeah, it's a thing... Ok, maybe I just made that up. But we haven't met, we don't talk on the phone, we text. Hence: text-dating) really likes to just send me smiley faces. The only proper response to that is another smiley face right? Winky face? Smiley face and winky face together? See, it gets tough! It's a good thing there's help.

Top 10 Worst Pick Up Lines

We've all been there. You're at the bar, minding your own business, sippin' a drink. Next thing you know, BAM! Dude in your face. Now maybe he's cute and you're into it... until he opens his mouth. Terrible pick-up lines-- no one is safe from them. And not just  usual "Come here often?" -- no, no, there's much worse out there.

Vodka Tampons– Are They a Real Thing?

If it's not an urban legend, this has to be the grossest way to get a buzz on I've ever heard:  According to some, kids these days are soaking tampons in vodka and inserting them to get drunk faster without having to down shots...  and not just chicks.  Blisstree.com reports that both men and women are willing to insert alcohol into improper orifices to get drunk.  Ewwwww.

Watch Live: Is Lindsay Lohan Going to Jail?

One of my guilty pleasures is garbage television. At any given time I can probably tell you what's going on with any of the Real Houswives, Kendra, the Kardashians (Kim divorced?! Shocking!) So it's really not unusual that I spent my morning watching the E! True Hollywood Story on Lindsay Lohan. Hey, it sucked me in. I mean, what a hot hot mess. I forgot there was a time she was actually considered a talented actress. What I did not know is that today is the very day LiLo could end up in jail. Yep, her probation violation hearing is going on right now. And, lucky me, E! is streaming live from the courthouse. Watch the drama unfold after the jump!

How Much Does it Cost to Raise a Child? (Video)

I'm one of those people that make faces when asked if I want to have children. Oops. I don't mean too. I don't hate kids... I'm just not ready. And they seem like a lot of work.  As if I wasn't already adverse to having kids, new statistics give me more of a reason to be not so into it-- kids are freakin' expensive!

Celebrity Halloween Costume Craziness!

Halloween costume shopping can be stressful. You think you find what you want, they don't have your size. Or you try on that super cute get-up you dreamed of, and it's just not working for you. (I will say that Halloween stores have some of the worst "fat mirrors" of all time. Seriously, if I'm showing this much skin, I'm gonna need a mirror that doesn't make me look 2 feet shorter and 3 feet wider, thanks.) If you're still looking for something to throw on for a big night out, maybe some celebrity inspiration will help.

Paranormal Activity in Grand Rapids? (Video)

I've always been pretty quick to dismiss the idea of paranormal activity. Things that go bump in the night? Well, those aren't my sorts of things. There has to be a practical explanation-- an open window, a noisy neighbor, a dripping faucet... but certainly not ghosts. There are those who do believe in an active spirit world, however, and some are right here in Grand Rapids. I was surprised to find out about all the "haunted" places in GR. WZZM 13 did some digging -- check out the video after the jump.

Jack the Cat Found after 61 Days!

Money Bags doesn't travel well. There's yowling, hissing, general unrest. I've never flown with him, but I'd imagine it wouldn't be a treat. Aside from that, something new to worry about:  he could get out of his cage and get lost at the airport for 61 days!  Have you heard about Jack the Cat who got lost at JFK?  Well, amazingly, they found him!  Jack survived and is now in critical condition. Check out the video after the jump.

Lance Bass’ Heart2Heart Boy Band: For Real or For Fun? (Video)

Whoa, whoa, whoa-- are boy bands back?! The verdict still seems to be out as to whether Lance Bass' new group Heart2Heart is legit or intended as a parody. However,  after watching the video to their debut single "Facebook Official", I don't really see how there could be any questions-- it's a total hoax. That doesn't mean I don't love it.
