Modest Fashion Blog Hello! My name is Monica, but you can call me your newest e-roommate. My best friend/ex-roommate and I blog over at Ask the Duplex, a blog where we ask all of the questions that we used to be able to ask our roommates any hour of the day.

OUT MAGAZINE The True Blood and Mildred Pierce star talks about coming out as bisexual and drinking tequila with Ellen Page. Photo: Getty Evan Rachel Wood, just back from the set of a new movie (you can see some sneak peeks on her Tumblr), sat down (or was on the go — who knows when you're on Twitter!) for a chat about her coming out as bisexual in 2012, and her upcoming performance with Milla Jovovich at a fundraising event called "An Evening With Women" for the LA Gay and Lesbian Center on May 10.

Total Leadership » Reduce Stress by Pursuing Four-Way Wins The pendulum is finally swinging back from the apogee of complete immersion in work as the business ideal. A great hue and cry now strains to contain our out-of-control culture of overwork.
