You know what I kind of hate? Stuff. Sitting there, requiring dusting, storage, packing when I move. Getting rid of unwanted, unbeautiful things is practically a hobby of mine. Do you still want that gold unicorn figurine? Because I really want to donate it to Goodwill so I don’t have to look at it anymore.
And Christmastime is the season of stuff. We all receive mountains of random crap from those ridiculous office Secret Santas, shirt-tail relatives and well-intentioned others. A framed print of dogs playing poker for the art snob! Cheese and meat trays for the vegetarian! Jingly, jangly earrings for the un-pierced! So, let’s save ourselves some embarrassment, a bit of wrapping paper and a trip to the returns counter and give the lovelies in our lives some consumable, usable non-stuff this year. Here are 10 to get you started… Keep reading »
Hibernation season has begun! The long, dark, cold nights of winter are here. (Shut up, Southern California.) And besides, you’re too broke to go out, anyway. What’s a girl to do? Curl up with your oldest and dearest friend, the boob tube. Thankfully all your favorite trashy TV shows — and a couple higher-quality ones (not that we watch those) — are coming back midseason. A schedule of all the shows you won’t want to miss, after the jump! Keep reading »
What was more important last night, America? Watching the Christmas Tree lighting or hearing your favorite artists’ announced as nominees for the 54th Grammy’s? Apparently, I thought neither, and opted for cocktails instead. Whoops.
Anyway … some of our favorites were on there once, some more than twice and some almost took over the whole freakin’ show (cough, Adele, cough). But seriously, I hope you win. A lot. Every award. Seriously.
But while we’re super pleased to see that our favorite party rockin’ anthems, heartbreak hymns and bumpin’ and grindin’ smooth jams made the cut, there were a lot of names and songs on the list this year that I didn’t recognize. So I went ahead and assumed that maybe our readers might not know them either. Read more…
I could look at alpacas all day, because I consider alpacas, just like corgi dogs, to be Nature’s Comedy. Like, HOW DID THE UNIVERSE COME UP WITH SUCH A FUNNY, WEIRD THING? Apparently the folks at Yestadt Millinery agree. They took some of their hats to Raspberry Hill Alpaca Farm and tried to get the alpacas to wear them, but no dice. Because hello, they’re alpacas, not hat-wearing fools. [Buzzfeed]
Do you want a hot body like your favorite Hollywood star? Would you settle for second favorite? Third? Look, how about you tell me where LaToya Jackson ranks in your top 10 and we’ll go from there. The aerobics VHS tape is apparently some trial that every celebrity must go through, and after years of research and $1.96, I’ve tracked down the four worst. Keep reading »
I’m not sure how I feel about SpaghettiOPs pizza, which is a real thing a guy name Adam Kuban made, documented and presumably ate recently. On the one hand, SpaghettiOs and pizza, together. On the other hand, that’s a lot of bread on pasta. But on the other other hand, I used to like eating spaghetti sandwiches as a kid, before I knew what a carb was. Keep reading »
