If you’re feeling less than enthusiastic about the tuna sandwich waiting for you in the office fridge, you might want to take a look at NeverSeconds, a food blog curated by nine-year-old Martha Payne. For the past month, Martha has borrowed her father’s camera and diligently documented the lunch offerings at her Scottish primary school, including important stats like health ratings and how many hairs she found in her food. She also often complained of not feeling full: “I’m a growing kid and I need to concentrate all afternoon and I can’t do it on 1 croquette. Do any of you think you could?” Her daily musings soon gained an international following (over 1.5 million pageviews so far), a Twitter shoutout from Jamie Oliver, and school lunch photo submissions from other kids all over the world. It also effected a major change in her school’s policy: yesterday, Martha announced that her cafeteria was now allowing unlimited side dishes. Martha, keep doing your thing, and if you ever visit the States, we’re totally taking you out to lunch. [NeverSeconds]

In case you haven’t heard, Kelly Clarkson has a new boyfriend (who just happens to be Reba McEntire’s stepson, Brandon Blackstock), and she’s also looking noticeably slimmer lately. Coincidence? She says no:

“I have a boyfriend, and if I’m being completely honest, no one likes to be not toned when you are dating someone. I’m eating better and working out, but I’ve always fluctuated within 20 pounds. I tone whenever I want, and I chose to now because my boyfriend and I are both really into it. But we don’t work out together. We did that once and I didn’t like huffing and puffing. I didn’t like looking all red and gross, so I don’t do that.”

This got me thinking about how our relationship status often affects our bodies and body image… Keep reading »

At first glance, I would assume this was a role-playing costume for people who wanted to dress up as those giant talking trees from “Lord Of The Rings” (“They’re called Ents, dumbass.” — Email I’m going to get from my brother as soon as this is published), but it’s actually a vintage skirt suit that’s being sold for $832. I’m not sure what the going rate is for an Ent costume these days, so who knows, that might actually be a good deal. Even so, I think I’ll pass. [Farfetch]

Isaac told his girlfriend to meet him at his parents’ house for dinner. When she arrived, she was instructed to take a seat in the back of an open SUV and put on a pair of headphones. Sixty friends, a choreographed dance, six marching band uniforms, four laptops, and one bended knee later, and (spoiler alert!) she said yes. Dramatic proposals don’t usually get to me, but I definitely teared up by the end of this. So sweet. [Vimeo]

Zooey Deschanel & 10 Other Celebs Who Don’t See Kids In Their Futures

She may be a bit of a kid at heart, but Zooey Deschanel doesn’t want any of her own. ”[Having kids has] never been my focus,” she tells the current issue of Marie Claire. ”My sister was always very motherly, babysitting and stuff. I like kids, and I like being around kids–but it was never an ambition, something, like, I need … I like working. That’s what I like doing. I like to work.”

I have to say, I’ve been on the fence about Zooey for awhile, but this interview painted a pretty interesting picture of her. (She also spoke about getting spit on by a bully in middle school: “I really don’t know why she spit at me. I guess I wasn’t allowed to talk to her. I remember I couldn’t believe it.”) And she’s not alone in not wanting kids; plenty of successful Hollywood stars plan on staying rugrat-free. Here are 10 more!

Dear Guy Who Built An Exact Replica Of The Car From “Ghostbusters,”

If I were to make a list of traits I find irresistible in a man, it would go something like this: “dark hair, green eyes, great sense of humor, intelligence, kindness, and most importantly, willingness to spend almost $80,000 to turn a 1959 Cadillac Hearse into a working replica of the car from ‘Ghostbusters.’” My current boyfriend fits most of these criteria, but as far as I know, you’re the only man in the world who has ever accomplished that last one. It took years of work, 158 miles of wire, four lightbars, and rotating beacons, but you did it. Now, who you gonna call? Hopefully me.
