A SEXY young woman wearing a slinky black dress and red patent-leather heels approached Susana Mayer before the first Erotic Literary Salon, in 2008. "Can I really read anything?" the woman asked. She then asked to go first and shared an original piece about her "daddy" - and she didn't mean her biological father. "That really set the pace," said Mayer, the salon's founder. "I couldn't have planned it to be better, because then people thought in their minds, 'I can read anything.' And in fact, somebody did. Someone who lived close by said, 'I'm going home and getting my diary at intermission.' " The Erotic Literary Salon is an open mic for authors and fans of original erotica.

STORRS, Conn. - It seemed like the rest of the state was closed. Morning anchors talked about how there was no place left to put any snow. Inside Gampel Pavilion? It was game on as soon as a charter arrived from South Carolina the day before and ESPN's truck showed up. Fans were told they could donate their tickets to students if they couldn't make it. Forget it. Whatever toboggan they needed to get here, they got here. It doesn't happen often, the chance for Geno Auriemma's Connecticut Huskies to even feign to be underdogs.

When it comes to health care, what do women want? It's a question that's increasingly important to the nation's hospitals, given that women are often the family's primary researchers, advocates, caregivers, and decision-makers for health care. Women make over 80 percent of health-care choices, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. They choose their children's doctors (85 percent), take them to appointments (84 percent), and ensure they get recommended care (79 percent), reports the Kaiser Family Foundation.

IT IS HERE - the calm after the storm, the teapot without a tempest. Sunday's Super Bowl was one of the more exciting ever, with New England beating Seattle, 28-24. Still, just moments after Seahawks coach Pete Carroll made the worst decision in Super Bowl history, the thought that crossed my mind was - OK, what now? The NFL is done. The Sixers and Flyers are both having seasons that yield little optimism. The Phillies are still 2 weeks away from pitchers and catchers reporting to Clearwater, and frankly, considering the last-place projections for them, who much cares?

It hit her during Mass, on one of those days when the priest's homily drags on a little too long. Student Laura Bunyard turned her gaze away from the lectern in the chapel at Rosemont College to the figures in the stained-glass windows. St. Barbara, St. Cecilia, St. Ursula, St. Gertrude, St. Joan of Arc, St. Veronica, St. Rose of Lima. Only then did Bunyard realize that almost all the people depicted in the warm colors of red, blue, and gold were women - saints who burned at a stake, wiped the face of their savior, or languished in jail for refusing to relinquish their virtue.

Whether it's plaid fingernails, a white-blonde reverse bob, or a sweatshirt emblazoned with the word kale , whatever Beyoncé dares to don, we feel we must, too. Even if we're talking about unmentionables. The trendlet Men's underwear - boy shorts or briefs with flies - seem to be the current girly-girl's underwear of choice in a very Victoria's Secret-meets-Fruit of the Loom kind of way. Where's it come from? Although menswear-inspired fashion has trended in and out of style since the 1920s, undies were always rather gender specific.
