PETA enthusiasts still using animal rights as an excuse to get naked

Wanna look like Tot Mom for Halloween?


Just in case latex masks weren’t creepy enough, someone thought looking like America’s most hated woman (aka Casey Anthony) would be a good choice. FRIGHTENING.

Perhaps equally as terrifying is the fact that this mask is currently going for $990,900 on ebay. But don’t worry, the seller is offering free shipping; it’s basically a steal. Bid up, as it’s only available for another half hour and the owner says its “extremely rare.” You know what else is really rare? Finding a jury that’s not completely inept and insane.

Crasian tiger senator in hot water for sex scandal

Who wouldn’t want a piece of that? Grrrr.

POLITICO reports:

Rep. David Wu has been accused of an “unwanted sexual encounter” with the teenage daughter of a longtime friend, the latest scandal to engulf the troubled Oregon Democrat.

The Oregonian reported that the 56-year-old Wu “acknowledged a sexual encounter to his senior aides but insisted it was consensual,” according to sources aware of the incident.

The unidentified teenager and her family did not file any criminal complaint over the incident, which apparently took place sometime around last Thanksgiving.

Calling the episode “very serious,” Wu did not specifically address allegations that he made unwanted sexual advances toward the young woman who is the daughter of a donor.

“This is very serious, and I have absolutely no desire to bring unwanted publicity, attention or stress to a young woman and her family,” Wu said.

Happy bday H.G. Wells; thanks for the scifi, but keep your socialism

So there's this book thing…

In case the dwindling post activity has been baffling you, I can explain. I have a book coming out.

The memoir, Type A+, will be release August 24th at a launch here in DC in SimplySoles, a luxury Georgetown boutique, with an after party following at L2. Incidentally, L2 was the exclusive lounge that helped put me on the map during my original Little Black Blog launch, and I can’t wait to see how it turns out for my book launch. Permalinks to purchasing the book online ($11.99) and on Kindle and other e-book readers ($2.99) will be posted as soon as the book is released.

Here’s the press release:

Quin Woodward Pu to Debut Memoir, Type A+, at Swanky Georgetown Launch

Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 20, 2011

Quin Woodward Pu, the preeminent writer of all things cosmopolitan and fabulous, will be debuting her first novel, a memoir, titled Type A+. The invite-only book launch party and signing will take place at SimplySoles, Georgetown’s premiere shoe boutique, on August 24th.

When Quin Woodward Pu—a straight-A Asian-American extrovert from Georgia with a penchant for vodka, designer shoes, and older men—receives her acceptance letter from Johns Hopkins Medical School, she is forced to make a decision between giving up her hard-partying, man-eating ways and continuing her fabulous VIP lifestyle and pursuing a more glitzy and glamorous career.

Type A+ is the memoir of her transition from MCAT-teaching pre-med free clinic volunteer to directionless, yet fabulous and resourceful, freelance writer. Like many Asian-Americans, she butts heads with her first-generation Chinese father when she strays from his life plan for her to attend a top medical program. She is encouraged by her histrionic but loyal friends—from an undiagnosed alcoholic roommate, to a bohemian BFFL, to a middle-aged playboy dermatologist boyfriend —to follow her champagne-soaked dreams of becoming a journalist.

The star-studded party promises to draw the area’s most visionary writers, thinkers, and society notables for an evening of refined frivolity and intelligent company. Located on Georgetown’s upscale M Street, SimplySoles is the perfect venue for the launch of Type A+. Guests will enjoy sumptuous nibbles and bubbly in one of The District’s largest retail spaces, while Handehoch, a DC-based DJ, will keep the atmosphere festive and celebratory.

Following the launch party and signing, an after party will be held at the exclusive L2 Lounge of Cady’s Alley. With its distinguished culture-spanning ambiance, this lounge is perfectly suited for sophisticated Washingtonians who enjoy tall designer drinks as much as they do tall designer shoes, and bourbon as smooth as their supple Italian leather briefcases.

SimplySoles is located on the second floor of 3222 M Street NW. L2 Lounge is located at 3315 Cady’s Alley NW.

Type A+ will be available on, as well as all e-book devices such as Kindle, Nook, and the iPad. Anexcerpt is available online and through the Type A+ Facebook page.
