So I’m heading to London today for the Olympics! But before I head out, I have to do one thing — pack. And I’m terrible at it. My general packing philosophy is to shove all of my favorite clothes into my bag and hope that somehow they create enough outfits. It means I don’t carry that much, and can usually cram everything I need into a carry-on bag — even on two week trips. But I often end up re-wearing the same things — or realize that I’ve forgotten something critical like underwear.

A few things I have learned, though…

"Google, Where Is My Son?"

Have you ever seen the movie “Taken”? It stars Liam Neeson as a tough dad whose daughter gets abducted and sold into sexual slavery by a dude she meets at the airport. I saw it on a plane which seemed highly inappropriate, considering the daughter runs into trouble at the airport, but whatever. This parody of “Taken” is actually exactly what it would be like if my dad starred in the movie, instead of super intense Liam Neeson. [Gorilla Mask]

Jessica Biel Vs. Kate Beckinsale: Who Got It Right & Who Got It Wrong

Tuesday night, Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale showed up for the premiere of their new movie, “Total Recall.” I say new movie, but it’s really a redux of the ’90s classic, which starred Arnold Schwarzeneggar. Several of my friends are “Total Recall” purists, and refuse to see the new one, but whatever, it stars Colin Ferrell, and he’s great. What’s not so great? Jessica Biel’s pocketful Christian Dior dress. It’s slightly boxy, and the retro shape doesn’t really work on her. Plus? There are weird pockets on the boobs, which I suppose are great if you’re constantly losing your keys or something, but they just add to the wrongness of this silhouette. Kate Beckinsale, though? She looks incredible in this snake print-y Armani Privé. Total Hollywood glamor. Yup Jessica, let Kate show you how it’s done.

It's Bub Time!

Okay, stop what you’re doing, because your world is about to be rocked by a tiny gimpy cat thing called Lil Bub. Bub was born with a deformed elongated body, bulging eyes, missing teeth and extra toes — and she’s also a perma-kitten. So, basically she’s the perfect cat. Her owner Mike (Who is hot! Hubba hubba!) brought Bub to NYC to appear on “Good Morning America’ and visit various city hotspots. Bub was shockingly nonplussed. But I guess that’s kind of what we’d expect from LB. Watch and enjoy Ms. Bub yourself.
