Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
When I was in 9th grade, I so badly wanted a cool pair of glasses that I lied to my optometrist. “Which one looks clearer?” he asked, switching between slides of random letters. “Honestly I can’t see either one,” I sighed. “Also I like your goatee. It suits you.” The doctor stroked his bare chin and wrote me a prescription for bifocals. A week later, I had secured a pair of insurance-reimbursed purple Calvin Klein frames and was feeling pretty smug.
Cut to 10 years and a few thousand hours in front of the computer screen later and I no longer need to lie to my optometrist to score prescription lenses.

As 2010 unfolded, our interest turned to disgust as we collectively pronounced “This Man IS NOT a role model.” We later watched with surprise as celebrity couple after celebrity couple, once seemingly happy, suddenly split. Doesn’t anybody stay together anymore? David and Courteney—not you guys, too? Keep reading »
I made an amazing discovery the other day regarding Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith‘s kids. Willow = Will. Jaden = Jada. Cute! (What, you already figured that out? Aren’t you smart!) Well, apparently Willow does really take after her papa, because she is considering covering his classic song, “Parents Just Don’t Understand.” She says, “There’s a possibility that I will [cover it]. It’s a really great song.” I, for one, hope she does it. I like the meta-ness of it all. [EW] Keep reading »
