And what would a "Love Week" be on DuelingTampons.com without a marriage proposal?

Ross Levitt (C'97) recently proposed to his girlfriend Tracy Mitnick (C'03) and got the story covered on CNN!

Per Ross,

"My fiance Tracy is a big fan of cupcakes, so I proposed using a cupcake from the famous Magnolia bakery. I had M&Ms made that say, "will you marry me" on them. We talked about marriage a lot, so Tracy didn't know I was serious until I pulled out the ring. Then she slid off the couch and was literally floored! ...I'm a business producer at CNN. I sent pictures from the engagement to the producers in Atlanta. They surprised me by announcing the engagement on the air. I was beet red!"

As part "Love Week", Mark Ayzenberg (C'09) sent me a sweet video of a song he had written and performed for his sister and brother-in-law for their their wedding.

Listen to "Ten Years Comin" here

Click to read the Mark's lyrics:...+/-


The Lyrics to "Ten Years Comin':

They met at golden slipper camp
Marc was a track star, Irene a badminton champ
Late October of 2005, Marc proposed;
I can't say it greatly changed their lives

Cuz it's been a 10 years comin'
They've been happy for oh so long
It's been 10 years comin'
And they're still goin' so goin' so strong

I had plenty of time to write this song

They went through so much together
Gave support and love no matter the weather
I know that for the rest of their lives
This love will continue to grow and thrive

From the weeklong business trips
To Marc cooking dinners throughout Irene's exam time flips
I don't know how they did it
Must be that Love of this kind is impossible to split

There's just one more thing I wanna to say
Their adopted kittens are great and fun for today
I'm all for family increase
But I'd rather it be a baby nephew or niece

Cuz it's been a 10 years comin'
They've been happy for oh so long
It's been 10 years comin'
And they're still goin' so goin' so strong

There's no better person
For Marc or Irene

Penn students, including me, seem to love to do entertaining videos in, at and about the library.

So, as part of "love week" on DuelingTampons.com, I wanted to show you the love a bunch of undergrads really seem to have for the library.

Check out this very entertaining short video highlighting the many features and functions of the Weigle Information Commons, located on the 1st floor of Van Pelt Library.

Do these guys love the library, or what?! It's great!

Starring Ryan Leonard (C'10), Andrew Abranovic (C'10), Will Xiong (C'10). Directed by Ryan A. Leonard.

This week, I've posted Penn related stories about love on TV, love in the movies and today, I've got love in print.

Lawyer-turned-author Julie Buxbaum (C'99) just released "The Opposite of Love", a book that has some hot buzz around it.

Click to check out the synopsis:...+/-


Per Julie's website:
"With perfect pitch for the humor and heartbreak of everyday life, Julie Buxbaum has fashioned a heroine who will be instantly recognizable to anyone who has loved and lost and loved again.

When successful twenty-nine year old Manhattan attorney Emily Haxby ends her happy relationship just as her boyfriend is on the verge of proposing, she can't explain to even her closest friends why she did it. Somewhere beneath her sense of fun, her bravado and her independent exterior, Emily knows that her breakup with Andrew has less to do with him and more to do with…her. "You're your own worst enemy,” her best friend Jess tells her. "It's like you get pleasure out of breaking your own heart."

As the holiday season looms, and Emily contemplates whether she made a huge mistake, the rest of her world begins to unravel: She is staffed on a multimillion-dollar lawsuit where she must defend the very values she detests by a boss who can’t keep his hands to himself; her Grandpa Jack, a charming, feisty octogenarian and the person she cares most about in the world, is losing it, while her emotionally distant father has left her to cope with this alone; and underneath it all, fading memories of her deceased mother continue to remind her that love doesn't last forever.

How this brave, original young heroine decides to take control of her life and face the fears that have long haunted her is the great achievement of Julie Buxbaum’s marvelous first novel. Written with the authority, grace, and wisdom of an author far beyond her years, The Opposite of Love heralds the debut of a remarkable talent in contemporary fiction."
Get "The Opposite of Love" here

Julie's path to becoming an author is an interesting and inspiring one..especially for anyone who has dreamed of quitting his/her days jobs to pursue their passion.

To start "Love Week" off on DuelingTampons.com, this morning we covered a Penn related story on TV.

Now I've got some more Penn "love" related news coming to theaters this Thursday ...plus an exclusive film clip thanks to another one of our Penn alumni!

Click here for more!

Don't have plans for Valentine's Day yet?

Why not catch Elizabeth Banks' (C'96) new romantic comedy Definitely, Maybe? The film comes out on Valentine's Day and looks to be a winner.

This momma drama-dy has Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine) trying to figure out who her mother is from the three women her father (Ryan Reynolds) once dated. Liz Banks plays one of the three girlfriends.

Check out this exclusive scene starring Ryan Reynolds and Liz Banks!
(A special thanks for the clip to Melisa Kirkup (C'01, Pennfest Music Chair), manager of Media Promotions at Universal)

Is there a better way to kick off our Love Week than to promote one our alum’s shows about a man who despite two unsuccessful attempts at finding love will be going back for one final time?

Click here to find out more about this show which debuts tonight!


That’s right, your favorite bachelor, Flavor Flav is back for a final time to find a his love. The third and final season of "Flavor of Love", produced by mega-reality producer Mark Cronin (Eng’86, Mask and Wig) premieres on VH1 tonight (Monday, February 11) at 9:00 PM.

This time, the woman Flavor Flav's looking for will be all about sophistication…

Per Tradingmarkets.com:

“This season, every challenge Flav poses, from nursing his broken heart on a hospital gurney, to composing a hip-hopera about Flavor Flav's life, will be engineered to make those women, who truly have love for Flav, shine. Whether it's jumping out of a plane at 30,000 feet, or swimming with sharks, these women will constantly be put to the test. The last two remaining contestants will travel to the international city of love in a final showdown for Flav's heart. In the end, Flavor Flav will pick the girl he believes is the one true love that he can finally settle down with. Hopefully, this time it will stick.

To help Flav find true love, he enlisted the help of his fans. Last summer, women from across the country uploaded profiles to VH1's Flavor of Love casting site and five were chosen through online voting to vie for Flav's love.”
Check out all the other reality shows Mark Cronin has produced!
