Quite the A-Rain-gement

Funnily enough, Rain’s Jackson-like dance moves are losing their hypnotic effect on me.

He has, however, totally warmed through the cold candy shell of my icy heart–especially after this incredible dance-off with my hero, Stephen Colbert.

Now if he’d only quit with “The Rachel” hair cut and put those sexy nerd glasses back on, we could be married.

Thanks, jRu!

A Bride With a Dark Side

May 21st, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Reuters reported a story today about a Indian man in the eastern Bihar state who staged a hunger strike after his intended bride refused to marry him for being too dark. After two days, she relented and married him anyway:

“Rajani, 19, changed her mind after two days and the couple got married, Arun Kumar Mishra, a village council official said.

‘We were all taken by surprise but Rajani was finally moved by the gesture of the young man and married him,’ Mishra said.

Most Indian women, especially those in rural areas, often have no choice in matters of marriage, and are coerced into it by relatives and parents.”

Girl, what?

If you had refused to marry him because you don’t believe in being forced into matrimony because of your parents wishes, cool–that’s punk. If you had refused to marry him because upon introducing himself, he leaned into your ear and said “You sure as hell better love anal,” fair enough. But you refused because he was too dark? That’s some bullshit. Your steez is tired, yo.
