George R. R. Martin Is Writing A “Game Of Thrones” Coffee Table Book Now

The book in question, according to George R.R. Martin, is “a compendium of the history and legends of the world of Westeros,” and though it’s officially called The World Of Ice and Fire, UK publisher HarperCollins has given it the nickname “The GRRM-arillion.” I like that name better. The nerd is strong with this one. For all…

Nothing Is More Riveting Than The Scripps Spelling Bee

How better to celebrate the English language than to watch the Scripps Spelling Bee? Not only does it glorify the ability to memorize massive quantities of information and spit it out under pressure in front of a room of peers, it also illuminates the weird and wonderful chimera that is our language.

Makeup Bag: 5 Favorite Summer Hair Products

My hair, washed, dried, and left entirely to its own devices, is soft, fine, flat, slightly wavy, and so, so boring. It viscerally pains me to wear my hair in its limp, lifeless natural state, but I don't always want crazy volume, either — I'm perpetually in search of a happy medium. I love to…

Today In Terribleness: Dad Sticks Baby In Freezer & Falls Asleep

First off, you just don't stick a baby in a freezer. Nope, not okay. Never okay. But secondly, if you do, you don't just lie down for a nap afterwards.

Girl Talk: I Did Everything Wrong, But Still Found Love

While many people start online dating to meet people, I joined OKCupid because I knew far too many already. This may sound cold, but I wanted to meet guys outside of my social circle who were more ... expendable. If a date or few went badly, I didn't want to bump awkwardly into these guys at…
