The premiere of "Sex and the City" on Friday night brought out Gainesville's most devoted fans, and some even dressed the part. I wanted to get really carried away and dress in a pink leotard and pink tutu, which Sarah Jessica Parker dons in the show's opening sequence, but my roommates thought that was taking it a little too far.
This summer, beaches all over the world will feature all kinds of swimsuits: itsy-bitsy ones, tankini versions and yes, even the cut-away. The cut-away suit, also known as the "monokini," is a trend that I will undoubtedly avoid this summer.
His birth name is Shawn Dalton, but even his mother affectionately calls him "Glyph."
Relationships are as common as double-headed love bugs in March. You've established a relationship with everyone you've ever met - from your professors and peers to the Chick-Fil-A guy who knows your order before you even reach the register.
Hi, my name is Annie. I am a sexual enthusiast, contemporarily known as a freak. I am a free spirit whose life philosophy fits better with the hippies in the '60s than those of my generation; I love everybody but not anybody. I come with standards and morals.
A typical American concept of karaoke usually involves a smoky bar with disinterested patrons chugging beer while some poor soul on stage tries his best rendition of Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'."

A crowd of about 100 college students and Gainesville residents gathered underneath a starry sky with pillows, blankets and lawn chairs Tuesday night.
While calling "Mario Kart" the greatest spin-off series of weapon-based kart racing might be as ridiculously specific as hailing TLC the best all-female R&B vocal trio of the '90s, the game has earned that detailed title.
The show that revived Paula Abdul's career and hooked audiences for six seasons has lost its grip on American viewers. Though the show still tops the ratings list, the success of "American Idol" is fading.
Rihanna cut hers short. Katie Holmes and her daughter sport matching looks, and Lauren Conrad wore one in just about every episode of "The Hills" last season. You guessed it girls: I am talking about this summer's fiercest hairstyles - the pixie cut, the bi-level bob and the side French braid.
Gainesville is a place where odd niches can proliferate. Take Arena Baggage, a home business run by UF senior Mike Arena. He supplies the local market's need for custom messenger bags.
This season, models marched down runways blinding onlookers. The pages of May's In Style magazine look more like colors found in a candy shop, and even Forever 21's latest frocks are inspired by Vitamin C. It's official, girls, summer is here, and as Posh Spice might say: Bold colors are going to be major.
The next few months are the prime time for music lovers to catch a great show. And if you're looking to see one good concert this year, go see Kanye West's Glow in the Dark Tour. This show was surrounded by a halo of hype from the get-go. It received stellar reviews all around, and when Entertainment Weekly gave the show a B+, it got an earful from Kanye who responded on his blog, "What's a B+ mean? I'm an extremist. It's either pass or fail! A+ or F-!"
