The Daily Squee: This Puppy Hates Mornings As Much As We Do

the daily squee
"But it's not even noon yet!"

Thor, a Great Dane puppy, is supposed to wake up at 3:30 in the morning to go to work with his human. He sounds just like we did, oh, every single morning of high school. Can you really blame him for wanting to stay in bed? It’s okay, Thor. Lots of humans act the same way in the mornings. You’ll get used to it. [Tastefully Offensive]

It’s been six long years since we’ve heard any solo tunes from Jenny Lewis, and every day without her mellifluous voice has been harder than the one before it. However, at long last, it looks like the musical drought is over! This week, the ex-Rilo Kiley frontwoman released the lyric video for “Just One Of The Guys,” the first single off her long-awaited third album, The Voyager, out July 29. [Does cabbage patch dance here.]

Directed by Lior Molcho, the clip features a photo carrousel of Jenny in various poses, sporting a pair of white cat-eye sunglasses while wearing a white suit with a rainbow airbrushed on the top half of the jacket. Visually, the lyric video is an extension of the album’s cover art, which features Lewis wearing the same ensemble, and was shot by famed photographer Autumn de Wilde. Keep reading »

RIP Society: Woman Calls Emergency Services Over Ice Cream Sprinkles

Sprinkles Are Not A Crisis

A woman in West Midlands, England, called 999 (Britain’s emergency call service) because of ice cream sprinkles. In the middle of an argument with the guy who’d just sold her an ice cream cone, she called police in a huff and detailed how he refused to put sprinkles on both sides. Um. Desserts are an emergency, okay? She insisted to the operator that ”it doesn’t seem like much of an emergency but it is a little bit.” After all, the ice cream man had “put bits on one side and none on the other.” Okay, so this is kind of hilarious (especially the recording), but wasting minutes of emergency responders’ time leaves people with real, non-dessert-related emergencies waiting longer for assistance. That said, I totally can’t help but laugh about this one. [Telegraph UK]

Wedding Party Falls Into A Lake While Posing For Photos

It Only LOOKS Serene...

It’s wedding season, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t already tired of reading about bridesmaid dresses and flower arrangements every time I look at social media. I thinks that’s why this video of a wedding shoot gone awry has me giggling so hard. Bride and groom Dan and Jackie Anderson were joined by 20 bridesmaids and groomsmen when things started to go a little south, literally. Given the way this video is making the rounds, I’m going to have to assume they have a good sense of humor about it and still had a fantastic wedding. Those drycleaning bills must have sucked, though. [The Daily Dot]

“People always try to pop off or call her bluff at bars. One of them, I don’t want to say the guy’s name, but he’s the lead singer of a very popular rock band. His initials are C.K.”

–Blake Shelton revealed in this week’s issue of Rolling Stone that his wife (and the mag’s cover girl!) Miranda Lambert once got in a bar fight with a certain rock star. Upon reading this and seeing the “C.K.” initials, my mind immediately went to Nickelback singer/Avril Lavigne soulmate Chad Kroeger, but I assumed that was just because I’m always thinking about Chad Kroeger. Plus, the thought of Miranda throwing down with Chad Kroeger at a bar seemed to good to be true. Right? Right? Turns out it’s totally true. Apparently the brawl went down at Miranda’s 27th birthday party, when drunk Chad was trying really hard to get the birthday girl to do a shot with him. When Miranda said no, Chad went into full-on douche mode and told her she didn’t need to be “a bitch” about it. Miranda, being Miranda, threw her drink in his face. New favorite celebrity anecdote? Check. One more reason to love Miranda? Double check. [EOnline]

sinead oconnor bossy

I will be #TeamSineadOConnor forever. Sinead’s a bad-ass feminist thriving in the music industry from way, way back. So much so, in fact, that she’s named her upcoming album, I’m Not Bossy, I’m The Boss — and that’s the very sexy cover image above. You may remember the phrase “I’m not bossy, I’m the boss” coming out of Beyoncé’s mouth in a PSA for Sheryl Sandberg and the Lean In Foundation’s “Ban Bossy” campaign. It turns out that Sinead was so inspired by the “Ban Bossy” campaign that she named her album after it. As she explained on her website:

Just a note to explain the title of my forthcoming album IS taken from Sheryl Sandberg’s Ban Bossy campaign.

Originally I had a different title, The Vishnu Room, but a few months back when I saw the phrase ‘I’m not bossy, I’m the boss’ and became aware of the Ban Bossy campaign, I wished I could re-name the album, since indeed it can be tricky being a female boss and I think Sheryl’s campaign is a terribly important one.

Now You Can Adopt Puppies Through A Catalog (Sort Of)

Not even Peggy Olsen could have come up with an advertising plan like this: how could anyone resist thinking about rescuing a homeless pet when their cute faces are planted right into a catalog? Green Wood Animal Shelter in London teamed up with British company Furniture Village put together an online brochure that includes the addition of special guests to their usual catalogue photos of household decor: dogs and cats who are looking for forever homes. The pets-to-be, who currently reside at the shelter, can be adopted with just a few clicks. I clicked on a few of the catalog stars to learn their stories, and it kind of melted my heart to see “Reserved” next to some of their names in bright letters. Lots of the animals featured in the brochure aren’t even listed on the shelter’s site anymore, which means they’ve been placed with loving humans! You can check out the brochure photos here and if you’re in Green Wood’s area, think about offering a home to sweet little fuzzballs like kitties Boudicca and Gunner, who still need families of their own!
