General and unsolicited advice:

• If you're ever looking for an easy way to take your outfit from "day to night," the best is to simply remove it and then put on your comfy jam-jams.

• There's a pretty big difference between "Go on a date with me, and you won't be sorry," and "If you don't do on a date with me, you'll be sorry,"— at least there is with HR.

• De-clutter. Nobody needs seven layers of dip. Five is enough.

• Here's a sure-fire way to jump-start a brain with a case of writer's block: Just take something that always has a set number, then add one. BAM. THERE'S YOUR STORY. (Examples: The Thirteenth Apostle, The 51st State, Her First Climax, etc.)

• Each and every day: Floss once, brush twice, meditate thrice, walk four miles, sleep seven hours, drink eight cups of water, and — most importantly — be spontaneous.

• Always keep a few multivitamins in your fridge. Then, if there's ever somebody in your house having a conniption, just offer them a "chill pill." If you're not immediately punched in the face, the situation has probably been defused.

• Republicans watching the Super Bowl, just remember this: You're not allowed to hate BOTH socialism and commercials. Gotta pick one.

• Every day is a gift. Just pretend you like it — even though it's kind of crappy and not really what you wanted.
