Ah, St. Patrick’s Day. There is no reason for everyone to celebrate you but everyone is more than happy to do it anyway. And there are few things in life more deeply stupid than that.
First of all, no one knows who St. Patrick is, but who cares! Let’s all just get super wasted and mumble something incoherent about the Irish! Plus, the name of the beer you’re drinking to forget your problems has an Irish-y name so go forth, young man, and celebrate a holiday about which you know nothing! Read more…
My overactive hormones and I have maybe watched this baby announcement — a time-lapse video showing a woman’s growing pregnant belly over the course of nine months — more than once. More than twice even. So adorable and lovely.
Soooo. I sat through two long ass hours of the most boring not controversial “Bachelor” finale ever. Really, the only part I wanted to see was “After the Final Rose.” So I had to watch.

Bret Easton Ellis, author of American Psycho, was very busy this weekend … thinking of ideas for a possible sequel to the book. So what is Patrick Bateman up to nowadays? Ellis took to Twitter to share his darkly frantic brainstorm. For starters, Patrick wants to have a threesome with Rihanna and Chris Brown. Disturbed? It gets so much more twisted. Hint: The Kardashian sisters, Kris Humphries, Chris Martin, Lindsay Lohan, David Beckham, Gavin Rossdale, and Katy Perry’s trainer are all involved. And lots and lots of murder. Oh, and if you didn’t figure it out from the original, Patrick Bateman is gay. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. I’m frightened. Social networking and celebrity culture would only make Patrick more psychotic, it seems. If that’s even possible. Click through to see Ellis’ highly disturbing Patrick Batemen musings. [Buzzfeed]
