These Goats Are Surfing And I’m Not Sure How To Handle It

Watch these goats catch a wave!

Whenever people ask me how my day is going, my standard response is, “Well, I still don’t have a pet goat, so today is the worst day of my life.” Because when you love goats as much as I do but you live in an apartment with a “no goats” policy, it’s easy to become a bitter, fragile person. So when I saw this video of an Orange County man who has taught his two goats to surf, I was elated, and confused, and overjoyed, and upset. How are you feeling about it?

10 Ways To Bring Reading Back Into Your Life

Rad Reads Week!
All of The Frisky's book content. Read More »

Whatever the reason, there often comes a time in our lives when reading takes a back seat to, you know, everything else. Maybe your crazy schedule leaves you no time to go to the library, let alone relax with a good book. Maybe Twitter has ruined your ability to read anything longer than 140 characters. Maybe you were so traumatized by the endless assigned readings in college that you can’t remember what it’s like to read for fun (seriously, I didn’t voluntarily pick up a book for at least a year after graduation). We’re celebrating Rad Reads Week here at The Frisky, which just happens to be the perfect time to rediscover the magic of a good book. Wondering how to get back in the habit? Check out our 10 tips, after the jump! Keep reading »

We Want To Go To There: 6 Gorgeous Places To Ponder The Meaning Of Life

On my recent trip to Hawaii, I spent pretty much every night watching the sun set over the bright blue ocean and just, you know, thinking about life.

Inspired by that pristine ocean view, I decided to hunt down a few more perfect places for pondering.  From waterfalls to banyan trees to a stunning starry sky, click through to check them out…

Sometimes an outfit is so perfect it makes me gasp and do a little office chair dance. Example: this chic, summery ensemble sported by Freida Pinto on her way out of “The Today Show” studios. I love the dreamy yellow dress, the crisp blazer, and trendy details like the colorful snakeskin bag, oversize sunglasses, and raspberry lipstick. Perhaps the best accessories of all? Those exquisite eyebrows! Damn, girl. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

Style Stealer: Hilary Duff’s Flowy Black Summer Dress

Black isn’t an obvious choice for a jersey summer dress, but if you’ve ever tried on a jersey dress, you know that black is by far the most forgiving color (I may never recover from the time I tried on a cream colored jersey dress while wearing a slightly-too-tight pair of underwear–the horror!). I love new mom Hilary Duff’s simple black dress, paired here with bold accessories, and totally want to recreate it. Get all the shopping details, after the jump! Keep reading »

“Yeah, one [romance] was with an entity that was actually a monster. And the other was with a holographic representation of the woman who designed the Enterprise engines. Neither of which I would necessarily call a healthy relationship. I just wish [the writers] had allowed that part of Geordi to evolve… Because there were a couple of one-line gags that were present in the character — the first one being, “The blind guy flies the ship.” And we solved that by giving Geordi a specific area of expertise from which to contribute, when we moved him to engineering.

The other stereotype was that of the nerdy guy, the engineer who is inept around women. And we just never had the opportunity — we ran out of time, I guess — we never had the opportunity to evolve beyond that. And I believe with the core of my being that ‘Star Trek’ is better than that. ‘Star Trek’ is better than stereotypes.”

– LeVar Burton talks about his character Geordi La Forge’s lack of romantic interests on “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” which is coming out on Blu-Ray on July 24th (yay!). Amelia and I have always wondered about Geordi’s complete lack of game, especially because, in my view, Geordi was suuuuper hot. But what can I say? I’m a sucker for a guy in a Visual Instrument and Sensory Organ Replacement (VISOR). [io9]

Tropical Storm Fabio Is The Sexiest Storm Ever

"I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!"
Margarine names are getting weirder and weirder... Read More »

My tropical storm has a first name, it’s F-A-B-I-O! But really you guys, the latest weather system ravaging its way across the Pacific is named Fabio. So far the storm doesn’t pose a threat to any land besides a tiny island, so you don’t have to feel weird about any sexual feelings this swirling mass of wind and rain might be bringing up for you. Apparently “Fabio” has been on the World Meteorological Organization’s list of storm names since 1982, when it replaced “Fico,” the name of a particularly devastating hurricane. According to The Weather Channel, 1982′s Hurricane Fabio “followed a path similar to the one expected for this year’s Fabio, staying well offshore. Afterward, Fabio returned every six years. Storms named Fabio brought locally heavy rainfall to Hawaii as remnant lows in 1988, 1994, and 2006, while the 2000 version of Fabio was a tropical storm that affected no land.”

As much as I like to think the storm-naming meteorologists had a thing for bodice rippers, the Weather Channel points out, “Fabio’s first appearance on the cover of a romance novel was for Hearts Aflame in 1987…So it would appear that ‘Fabio’ the storm came before ‘Fabio’ the model and actor.” [The Weather Channel]

The suburbs of Minneapolis are a land of quiet cul-de-sacs, hot dish potlucks, and mostly conservative politics, but in light of a new amendment that seeks to add a gay marriage ban to the Minnesota constitution, these neighborhoods have become something a bit more unexpected: a sea of rainbow flags. And who’s leading the charge? Church ladies, of course!

As soon as the State Legislature voted to include this despicable amendment on the November ballot, Gwin Pratt, a senior pastor at St. Luke Presbyterian Church, sprang into action, brainstorming ways to fight it. One church member, Cindy Eyden, proposed a plan: what if they bought rainbow flags and handed them out to anyone who wanted one? Keep reading »
