Greasy Food Makes Hangovers Worse & Other Things You’ll Need To Know On New Year’s Day

There’s nothing I enjoy more when I’m drunk than stopping by McDonald’s on the way home — the only time I go to Mickey D’s, by the way — and getting myself some chicken nuggets. Something about the greasiness and chickenness and saltiness just hits the drunken spot!

But it turns out I’m…

How To Ring In The New Year Like Bridget Jones

New Year’s Eve is not for everybody. In fact, some of us find it downright silly. Pointy hats covered in glitter? Drunk people on every corner? Dodging a kiss from your college roommate’s cousin’s best friend at midnight? No thanks! It’s okay if you ring in 2014 from the comfort of your own couch —

I Cannot Handle How Much An Applebee’s New Year’s Eve Cost

An ultra-planned New Year’s Eve is rarely a perfectly smooth experience,* to say the least, what with wayward dates, freezing temps, and wildly crowded bars. But one restaurant franchise thinks you will be willing to spend an exorbitant amount of attending its NYE party because obviously, it is probably your best–if not only–bet. Ladies and gentlemen, I…

Kim Kardashian Hits The Slopes In Major Fur

I know you didn’t expect Kim Kardashian to ski in some boring ass Northface puffer. Please. Isn’t it a bad idea, though, for fur to get wet? Like, if Kim takes a tumble, won’t the wet snow make her fur smell like a wet dog? I’ve never smelled real wet fur, so I don’t know.

Oops: Porn Filters Are Also Blocking Sex Ed Advice

Research has shown that online filters, which seek to keep pornography and other age-inappropriate content hidden from children, are also blocking out totally legitimate sexual education advice. And probably a lot of chicken breast recipes, I’d assume. [Telegraph UK]

The Daily Squee: Kittens Reenact “The Lion King” … Sort Of

Kittens are basically useless at everything, which makes them perfect stand-ins for Disney movie reenactments. Some grownups with a lot of time on their hands corralled a small child and a bunch of behbeh kittehs for a somewhat comprehensive reenactment of “The Lion King,” songs included. They’re no Jonathan Taylor Thomas, but they’ll do! [Mashable]…

Prince William Heads Back To School, Enrolls In Cambridge

I’ll be honest: this post was just an excuse to put up a gratuitous photo of Prince Harry and his hot ginger beard. It’s not even a post about Prince Harry. It’s about Prince William and how he’s headed back to school for — surprise — agricultural management.

Beauty Test Drive: Origins Make A Difference Plus+ Rejuvenating Treatment

Taking care of my skin always feels like a chore. Whether it’s taking my makeup off before I go to bed or using the Clarisonic Mia (which gets me tons of compliments, for real), it’s not a habit. Or it’s a bad habit. Whatever, you know what I mean. But when Origins sent The Frisky…
