I recently signed up for a Google alert for the phrase “baby goat,” which means whenever anything happens on the internet that concerns baby goats, Google sends me an email. The first baby goat alert I got was about a taxidermist who was making hats out of baby goats. So traumatizing. I almost shut off my baby goat alert after that, but then I got an email about this video of week-old goat kids playing at the Oakland Zoo, and it made it all worth it. [YouTube]
I have this weird case of Lea Michele/Cory Monteith amnesia where I always forget they’re a real life couple, and whenever I see pictures of them together I call all my friends to tell them “Oh my god did you know those kids from ‘Glee’ are together in real life?!” And my friends are like, “Yes, everyone knows that, plus you called me two days ago to tell me the same thing.” So when I saw pictures of Lea Michele and Cory Monteith together at LAX, my first thought was, “Whoa, they’re together in real life?!” and my second thought was “Daaaaamn, cute outfit, Lea!” If you thought the same thing (about her outfit, that is), get all the pieces to steal her style, after the jump!

This is a picture of Melanie Chisholm AKA Sporty Spice, but when I first saw it I thought it was a picture of Kate Middleton AKA Sporty Duchess. I tested my theory by calling my boyfriend into my office, showing him the picture, and asking him who it was. “Oh!” he said, “the girl from ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off!” I shook my head and asked him to think more along the lines of British royalty. “Oh, you mean Kate Middleton? I don’t know what she looks like.” Siiiiigh. What do you guys think? Is Melanie looking more and more like a Duchess doppelganger or am I seeing things? [Fame/Flynet]
Store-bought pizza rolls always sound like such a good idea (pizza in crispy bite-size pouches? What could go wrong?!), but they tend to come with the undesirable side effect of making you feel like you’re gonna die. Whipping up a batch of pizza rolls at home lets you choose your own non-poisonous ingredients, and they’re the perfect appetizer to bring to a party. Bon appetit! [Tracey's Culinary Adventures]
Imagine this: your wallet gets stolen one night while you’re out with friends, and the thief uses your identity to write hundreds of dollars worth of bad checks. You report the crime to the police but they can’t track down a suspect. A couple weeks later, you’re waiting tables at your restaurant job when a girl comes in and orders a margarita. You ask for her ID, and… she hands you your stolen driver’s license. This is exactly what happened to Brianna Priddy, a waitress at an Applebee’s in Colorado, and she handled the situation way better than most of us would have: “I didn’t say anything,” Priddy told a local news station. “I handed [the ID] back to her and said, ‘Sure I’ll be right back with your margarita,’ went straight to the phone, called the cops.” Police arrived in minutes and arrested the woman for theft, identity theft, criminal impersonation, and possession of narcotics.

If you lean toward a more masculine aesthetic but are sick of shopping in the men’s section, you’ll definitely want to check out TomboyX, a new clothing company that plans to cater exclusively to self-described tomboys. Currently over halfway to meeting their fundraising goal on Kickstarter, the TomboyX collection will feature button-up shirts, polos, blazers, and other classic men’s styles designed to fit a woman’s body (I’m pretty obsessed with the knit blazer). According to the website, TomboyX’s mission is “to provide clothing options for a demographic that the fashion industry typically ignores – women who want unique, comfortable clothing that celebrates their tomboy spirit.”
All TomboyX clothing will be manufactured in the USA, and little details like hidden buttons, contrast stitching, and plaid linings ensure the streamlined pieces will be anything but boring. Watch the video above to find out more, and if you believe in what they’re doing, donate a few bucks and spread the word to help these awesome women get their business rolling. [Kickstarter]
A couple months ago I wrote a post about my latest pair of painful high heels (seriously, my toenail is still bruised from wearing them for three hours!) and begged the Frisky community for help finding a pair of truly comfortable heels. You guys delivered with some awesome brand recommendations that I’ve been meaning to compile into a list–complete with online shopping links–for quite awhile. Thanks again for all your suggestions, and now, without further ado, I present The Frisky’s shoppable guide to comfortable high heeled shoes… Keep reading »
Me: Excuse me, you’ve got a little something on your chest.
Model: Oh, could you get it off? What is it?
Me: Well it appears to be an entire tree branch… Keep reading »
“We, the undersigned, would like the Obama administration to recognize the need for a new national anthem, one that even a decade after its creation, is still hot and fresh out the kitchen. America has changed since Francis Scott Key penned our current anthem in 1814. Since then, we have realized that after the show, it’s the afterparty, and that after the party, it’s the hotel lobby, and–perhaps most importantly–that ’round about four, you’ve got to clear the lobby, at which point it’s strongly recommended that you take it to the room and freak somebody. President Obama: we ask you to recognize the evolution of this beautiful country and give us an anthem that better suits the glorious nation we have become.”
––This is the actual text of a petition to the Obama Administration to change the national anthem to R. Kelly’s 2003 hit “Ignition (Remix).” Only 95,000 more signatures are needed to guarantee an official response from the White House. Let’s do this. [Whitehouse via Buzzfeed]
David Beltier and his boyfriend Jeremy have three poodles, Muffin, Beauty, and Princess, each with brightly colored fur dyed with Kool-Aid. Last week David and Jeremy were walking their pink poodle, Beauty, down the street of their Portland suburb when a SUV pulled up alongside them and the male driver started yelling anti-gay slurs. The man’s ire seemed to be sparked by the color of the couple’s poodle, which he called “Un-American” (yes, seriously).
