Rather than a big new ride for 2014, Six Flags Magic Mountain will unveil several smaller attractions throughout the year. The Valencia amusement park will run a couple of coasters backward in the spring, add a kiddie coaster and a pair of water slides in the summer and expand its Halloween offerings in the fall. After introducing the Full Throttle looping launch coaster this year at Magic Mountain, it makes sense that Six Flags would spread the wealth to other locations in the amusement park chain in 2014.

"I've waited this long for Mr. Right," my 38-year-old sister said as she leaned toward me over her albacore protein roll, the sushi restaurant buzzing with sake-soaked conversation. "I'm not going to settle for anything less than magic. " I knew the adrenaline rush she meant. In the wake of my divorce eight years ago, I'd fallen hard for a new boyfriend -- a contemporary artist who was scruffy in a way I thought very Julian Schnabel but my friends considered merely dirty -- and my life of petty arguments and lawyer phone calls suddenly seemed dusted with a dreamy shimmer of serendipity.

Patricia is a landlord, and she's noticed a consistent trend when it comes to payments from her tenants. They'll typically set up their bank accounts so that a payment is made on the first of the month. But she often won't see the money in her bank account until four or five days later. Why the lag?

It's been two decades since Groundlings alum Jennifer Coolidge got her first big break in "The Masseuse" episode of the NBC series "Seinfeld," as Jerry's new masseuse girlfriend who refuses to give him a massage. In the subsequent 20 years, the statuesque, 51-year-old actress has created a memorable gallery of no-holds-barred, outrageously funny ladies. Frat boys know her as Stifler's seductive mom who likes her scotch and men the same way - aged 18 years - in Paul and Chris Weitz's 1999 blockbuster "American Pie" and two of its sequels.

Your browser does not support iframes. The hand is faster than the eye, which Juan Uribe could well tell you. It was Uribe who was caught with the ol' hidden-ball trick Saturday by the Tampa Bay Rays. Uribe was standing on third base, basically just changed his weight from one foot to the other on the bag, and in that split second in between was tagged out by a gleeful third baseman Evan Longoria. The play did not end up costing the Dodgers, though you can be sure they spared no effort in giving Uribe plenty of grief for his gaffe.

"The colors need to be bright, like saturated neon," Charles Phoenix says, describing his Seven Layer Soda Pop Rocks cake. "You can't have too much food coloring. Think Day-Glo!" Phoenix is visualizing the elements of an ideal summer party. His ideal summer party. "A pool would be nice, because pool parties are classic summer.

The lights were wrong and the throws were wrong, and this whole Dodger Stadium thing just looked wrong. And then suddenly, things went right, things went very, very right. After falling behind six runs to Cy Young winner David Price and Tampa Bay, the Dodgers rallied late, rallied some more and then finally rallied once more to stun the Rays. The Dodgers scored once in the seventh inning, twice in the eighth and then four times in the bottom of the ninth to defeat the Rays, 7-6, before a Dodger Stadium crowd of 51,083.
