Cooking while looking for love
If you are a chef looking for love, you might want to look for another chef. Women like men who can cook, but chefs tend to put in 12- to 16-hour work days, six days per week. The hours are hard, said Kerilyn Russo in an interview with the Washington Post. She is an interior designer. Her husband, Peter Russo, is a chef. This is sometimes hard on their marriage, but Kerilyn Russo said they make it work. She is the creator of marriedtoachef.com, a website that works as a support system and network for those who are missing their spouse while they are in the kitchen.

New movie “The Roommate” falls short
Many students have dealt with having a roommate. Hopefully their experience didn’t turn out the way the new movie “The Roommate” did. Sara, played by Minka Kelly, shows up to college ready to study fashion design. Rebecca, played by Leighton Meester, is her roommate, who seems friendly at first. As the movie progresses, Rebecca begins to show her true colors as a crazy person. “The Roommate” is somewhat of a wannabe thriller, according to Entertainment Weekly. But those of you who’ve had problems with roommates in the past might want to check it out just to remind yourself it really wasn’t all that bad.
