12 Celebs We Love To Hate (And Hate To Love)

This is my life: after every major awards show, I lie awake contemplating my feelings toward Taylor Swift. What we have is a love/hate relationship of epic proportions, that leaves me fighting an inner battle every time I see her on television. Do I cheer? Hiss? Pre-order her next album? Most of the time I just watch her with awe, annoyed that I’m so compelled by someone who bothers me so much. But she’s not the only celebrity who leaves me with conflicted feelings. Here’s a whole gaggle of stars we love to hate (and hate to love).

Little Kids Reenact Oscar Best Picture Nominees, And I Want To Keep One

Oscar Nominations
Check Out Baby Leo...

The Oscars are upon us, which means there’s a lot of chitter chatter around the water cooler about who’s going to take home the win for Best Picture. Actually there isn’t, but thanks to this adorable video of kids acting out scenes from each of the nominated movies, maybe there will be.

From “Captain Phillips” and “12 Years A Slave,” to “The Wolf Of Wall Street” and “American Hustle,” these little tater tots pretty much nailed it. Also, I should mention that I want to take one of them home to keep for myself. Right now it’s between the kid who plays little Solomon from “12 Years a Slave” and both of the astronauts from “Gravity.” I will report back shortly to let you know who I’ve chosen as my new child.

Poll: Would You Share Your Secrets On New Confessional App ‘Secret’?

this-or-that-secret

A new, anonymous confessional app called ‘Secret’ is picking up steam in the social world, and I’m not sure how I feel about it.

Here’s how it works: Users who download ‘Secret’ can upload images or plain backgrounds with text overlays sharing personal confessions or “secrets.” The app connects to your phone’s contacts and anonymously shares your secret with “your circle,” which includes your direct contacts or friends of friends who also have the app. If a “secret” is posted by someone more than 3 degrees away, it’s marked with a location stamp.  Keep reading »

Take A Pic And Show Us Your Snow Day!

Holy crap, you guys. It looks like Jack Frost’s wet dream outside.

Here in New York, the snowstorm is so bad that I’m pretty sure even the Dunkin’ Donuts near my apartment is closed. If you know anything about Dunkin’ Donuts, it’s that those guys would power through an apocalypse with gas masks and Dunkaccinos in hand if it meant they might sell one box of Munchkins.

For All Of Your Gutter Cleaning Needs, I Probably Wouldn’t Call LaborPanes

I love a good pun. In fact, just last night I was watching “Modern Family,” and smiled the widest of smiles when Cam had to choose between his two favorite flower shops, Floral And Hardy and Florist Gump. (Fun Fact: They’re both actual florists.) Cute, right?

Then I signed on Facebook this morning, only to see that a friend of mine, who lives in South Carolina, posted this photo of a truck she saw advertising a business called LaborPanes. No, LaborPanes is not a company of mobile midwives or OB-GYNs. According to the truck, LaborPanes specializes in window cleaning, pressure washing, dryer vent cleaning and gutter cleaning and repair.

Here are my thoughts (in no particular order) about this business name… Keep reading »
