So, I am thinking of naming my house. Has anyone else named their house? Is this too antiquated, or will I confuse folks? Or are we bringing the funk to the suburbs? (Good Rick James funk, not gross funk.)

I'm kind of all kinds of love with Manhattan Project Design Shop's lighting collection. My buddy was looking for hanging lamps for his kitchen and dining area. He stumbled upon these, shared them with me, and I had to share them with you.
In my new job, my office is in an inconvenient location, and I don't like to drive from building to building around campus. Consequently, I find myself lugging quite a lot of stuff around with me throughout the day: books, papers, laptop, regular daily stuff. That's why I'm hoping for suggestions from Homies. Does anyone have suggestions for stylish rolling bags to lug around my daily necessities?
I know there are tons of Live Action Role Players (LARPers) out there. How do you find a good group? What should first-timers expect when they go along? Is it cool for us to turn up as a couple? What else should we know about testing the waters here?
So, have you noticed that there are now really fugly ads at the bottom of some of our photos? Some of you hardcore Empire readers may be like "but I thought you guys killed in-image ads back in 2012." You're right. So, what's changed? That, my friends, is a bit of a good news/bad news thing…
Pennsylvania-bred and Brooklyn-based, Jordan makes clothing (for adults and kids) with geek-chic graphic designs. I'm cray-cray for these screen printed shirts and undies that, as Jordan puts it, "feature beautiful, hand-lettered quotes and insider nerdisms for those with discerning taste." Check out these tops and undies that feature quotes from Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, and Carl Sagan…
I've had my dog ever since she was able to leave her mom. She's four now, and really is the best behaved dog for the most part. We have both lived with my parents in the country. Recently I moved to a new city and apartment. I thought my dog adjusted perfectly, however after a month and a half, my landlord called to say she was barking/howling/crying during the day while I was at work and that they wouldn't tolerate it anymore and that I had to do something. Right now, my doggie is living with my parents, but it's breaking both of our hearts to be apart. What else can I do in order to be able to live with my dog again?
My husband is on a lot of medications and we have a two-year-old who has finally figured out the beauty of moving stools to reach what she wants. We need to lock up his meds, but not in the bathroom. I was hoping to find a locking cabinet stylish enough to put up in our bedroom. But I haven't found anything yet. Especially something not too expensive. Would that be a challenge you would be willing to do?
