Lessons in Love from a Good Student

Janice Edman             If there was a class offered here at Poly on love, I’m sure the “learn by doing” motto would be given a run for its money.  Because that’s exactly how one learns about love ” not from reading Harlequin Romances or watching “How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days” until you […]

Summer lovin' happens so SLO

Janice Edman When I was 15, I bought the single for “Baby One More Time” by Britney Spears – and it’s taken me seven years to admit it. Her B-side song was entitled “Autumn Goodbye,” a deeply profound ballad about the pains of summer love. It contained the sage lyrics, “Summer love will keep us […]

The new Blockbuster night

A Casual Encounter of the Sexual Kind

Janice Edman             During a recent trip to the salon, I had ample time (four-and-a-half hours to be exact ” it’s a tough life) to read up on the magazines you find in vast, thumbed-through abundance at salons and the doctor’s waiting room.  Although I found Vogue’s cover story on Ashlee Simpson less than stimulating, […]

No love in downtown SLO

Janice Edman In a recent article entitled “Urban Unrest,” the New Times reported on a group of wily and hyper-offended SLO residents (my description) who want Urban Outfitters – our first cool store in, I’ll venture, a decade – to get rid of their inappropriate book selection. One mother claimed she was “shocked” at books […]

Spring Breeaaaaaakkk!!!

Janice Edman             I have never gone on spring break.  I have gone away for spring break ” a chilly trip to New York where I had strep throat and enjoyed what I could of the city from the hotel room bathtub ” but I have never “gone on spring break.”  Don’t get me wrong, […]
