Someone please tell me why I was not on this plane. Travelers flying from Brisbane to Sydney, Australia, this weekend got a musical surprise when the Aussie Broadway cast of “The Lion King,” who were also en route, decided to serenade the plane with their rendition of the musical’s hit number, “The Circle of Life.” Keep reading »

Cookie Dough Addicts, Rejoice: Unbakeables Are A Gift From Above

Open Letter: Cookie Butter
Trader Joes Cookie Butter
What sorcery is this? Read More »

Allow me to interrupt your day to bring you this very important, very delicious public service announcement: There’s now a way to devour uncooked cookie dough without fearing you’ll get salmonella.

To this day, I’m still guilty of scooping cookie dough straight out of the bowl before I put a batch of cookies in the oven, which is always followed by immediate regret and panic that I may get salmonella … again. It happened to me once, and it was not enjoyable. BUT, I was recently introduced to Unbakeables, cookie dough bites meant to be eaten uncooked (they’re egg-free), with extra toppings to sweeten the deal. I’m pretty sure they could revolutionize kids’ birthday parties everywhere, forever. Keep reading »

Frisky Eats: Strong Drinks For Bad Ass Chicks

Sometimes in life, the only men you can rely on are Jim, Johnnie, Jack and José (along with some of their strong friends, of course). It’s okay to set aside your wine spritzer or peach-tini to opt for something on the harder side. And lucky for you, we know just the right cocktails to light that fire under your butt without making your face scrunch up like you just drank lighter fluid.

Appalled Grandmothers Read Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love” Lyrics, I Die Laughing

grandmas-read-drunk-in-love
"Who's Anna Mae? I Think She Wrote A Book..."

You guys, I’m convinced that this video of grandmothers reading Beyonce‘s “Drunk In Love” lyrics is the eighth world wonder.  From their declaration that Bey and Jay “must have a big bath tub,” to questions about modern society (“We never talked when we had sex. What’s all this talking?”), this video is a gem of the rarest kind. While I do disagree with the granny in yellow that this song  ”is a piece of shit,” I can only hope that my best girlfriends and I grow up to be just like this trio of whippersnappers. Sandwiches included.

Some people live their whole lives never meeting their soul mate. But for those of us who love country music, that will never be the case, because on July 17, 1976, Luke Bryan and his cute tushie entered the world. The universe will never be the same.

Sure, his voice is one reason to love him, but there’s so much more to him than his catchy songs. Like his ass. And his dancing. And his wit. Anyway, I’ll let the GIFs do the talking. Keep reading »

The Emotional Lifecycle Of A Bridesmaid (In GIFs!)

The Emotional Lifecycle Of A Bridesmaid (In GIFs!)

This summer, I’ll have the pleasure of standing by my good girlfriend’s side as a trusty bridesmaid while she says “I do” to the man of her dreams. This isn’t my first time at the rodeo, though. I’ve been a bridesmaid several times before, responsible for holding the bride’s bouquet, helping to plan the bachelorette party, looking for lots of really lacy shit on Etsy, etc. I’m a pro. But along with your run-of-the-mill bridesmaid duties comes the waves of emotion that go hand-in-hand with the roller coaster of being a wedding wing woman.

If you’ve ever been a bridesmaid, this may seem familiar. If you haven’t, prepare yourself. Keep reading »

Frisky Rant: Kids Don’t Belong On Leashes

Frisky Rant: Kids Don't Belong On Leashes

On my way into work this morning, I had the displeasure of walking behind two women who, in each of their hands not clutching their coffee, held leashes that were harnessed to their respective children. Not dogs — children. The woman on the left had three kids, all on individual leashes, and the woman on the right had one child. All of the children appeared to around age five or younger. I am not a parent, and so I generally shy away from expressing my opinions about other peoples’ parenting choices, but if there is one thing that makes my blood boil, it’s parents who treat their children like they’re animals. And in my opinion, strapping a harness around a child’s belly and keeping them on a leash, even if it’s a leash meant for a human, is coming pretty damn close. Keep reading »
