The Night Belongs To Christina Applegate

Well folks, it's been fun, but now it's time to say good night — and to toast Christina Applegate, who turns 40 today. Some of you may be fans of her work in Married ... With Children, or her more recent film career, but my favorite Applegate role has always been her turn as Sue Ellen Crandell in Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter's Dead.


Other famous people with birthdays today include Joe DiMaggio, Times columnist Gail Collins, and the Bush twins. A glass of leftover Thanksgiving wine for all!



I had 3 UTIs in about 6 months. i saw a urologist a few weeks ago he gave me antibiotics for everytime I have sex, which I'm not too pleased with. I hate the drugs but I'm constantly worried I'm going to get sick again, I thought spiral. I have been so anxious lately about them I constantly chug water, refuse sex and I'm completely paranoid if I have more than a glass of wine or coffee. The lack of sex isn't good for my relationship and this constant worrying is driving me nuts. The urologist thinks it's just "honeymoon cystitis" and I have more tests in a few weeks to rule everything out. I guess i would just like to know how to control my constant anxiety about being sick. I'm taking all preventative measures, showering before and after sex, cranberry pills, tons of water, no caffeine, limited alcohol etc. I'm sick of living like this I'd like to go out drinking with friends without obsessing about getting sick. Help. I also miss coffee.
