Meet Pawdele, the latest canine star to emerge from The Pet Collective. Enjoy her soul stirring rendition of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” aptly renamed “Digging In The Deep.” This bitch’s performance is so convincing. I hope that Pawdele’s ex didn’t leave her for another man the way Adele’s did. [Buzzfeed]
Get real, girl, you are not going be able to get those opening weekend tickets for “Magic Mike.” Instead, park your butt on the couch this Saturday night at 10/9c for “StandUp In Stilettos.” That’s the night that friend-0f-The-Frisky Erica Watson — who was in “Precious” a few years ago and will be in “The Bitter Pill” with Rooney Mara and Jude Law in 2013 — perform. The other performers are Paula Bel (from season seven of “Last Comic Standing”) and Felicia Michaels (winner of American Comedy Awards for Funniest Female). I promise, they will be only slightly less entertaining than Channing Tatum on the pole. [YouTube]

I HAVE BEEN INFORMED THAT TODAY, JUNE 28, 2012, IS INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY. A SPECIAL CAPS LOCK MEMORY FOR YOU IN HONOR OF THE DAY: I ONCE WORKED FOR SOMEONE WHO DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT THE EXISTENCE OF THE CAPS LOCK BUTTON AND SHE SENT AN URGENT E-MAIL TO OUR IT GUY SAYING THAT HER COMPUTER “WAS BROKEN” BECAUSE IT “WOULDN’T STOP TYPING IN ALL CAPITALS.” WE DIDN’T HAVE THE HEART TO DIVULGE THE SECRET OF THE CAPS LOCK BUTTON TO HER BECAUSE A) SHE WENT TO AN IVY LEAGUE COLLEGE AND PRIDED HERSELF ON BEING VERY SMART AND B) BECAUSE IT WAS TOO MUCH FUN. ENJOY YOUR DAY AND FEEL FREE TO TYPE IN ALL CAPS UNTIL MIDNIGHT TONIGHT IF YOU FEEL LIKE IT.
When I saw on Twitter on Tuesday night that the iconic writer Nora Ephron had passed away, I felt the sort of panic you feel when someone you know in real life is in trouble. Though I’d met Nora Ephron several times in the past few years at parties, I could hardly say I knew her. Yet through her books and articles, which I’d read throughout my 20s, I felt not only like I really knew her but like she was a guardian angel figure in my life, an older aunt or a mom’s best friend who was always there with quick wit and common sense. Moreso than other second-wave women I admire — Gloria Steinem, Toni Morrison, Jane Fonda, Joan Baez — I would ask myself in moments of career crisis, What did Nora Ephron do when she went through this same thing? Like me, Nora Ephron had feminist sensibilities, but didn’t run in strict feminist circles. Like me, she was ambitious and talented, but wanted a family life, too.
