2013: The Year In Books We Couldn’t Put Down

We spent a good portion of 2013 with our noses in books. So. Many. Books. But these are the ones we really couldn’t tear ourselves away from.

Frisky Eats: 19 Recipes We Cooked & Loved In 2013

Here at The Frisky, food is a big passion of ours. Eating it, obviously. Talking about it. Looking at pictures of it. Imagining wonderful hybrid foods that should exist but sadly don’t. And sometimes even cooking it. Here are 19 Frisky-approved recipes we discovered, cooked and then ate the hell out of in 2013.

Materialistic Year In Review: The Best Things I Bought In 2013

Best Things I Bought This Year

I’ve already done quite a bit of serious reflecting on the life lessons I learned this year. Now it’s time to reflect on a much shallower topic: the cool stuff I bought. After selling most of my belongings in the spring, I tried to be a bit more careful with my purchases this year, although I’ll admit to more than a few impulse buys and giddy-if-not-entirely-logical purchases made for the sole purpose of decorating/filling up our new place (antique “hot pretzel” sign, I’m looking at you). Here are the 10 products I’m most excited about, in no particular order… Keep reading »

2013: The Year In Goats!

2013 The Year In Goats

Even if you’re not an obsessive goat lover like me, you’ve got to admit 2013 was a huuuuuge year for goats. These mischievous little bovids bounced their way into music videos, Taylor Swift songs, the Guinness Book of World Records, airport maintenance programs, bars, and even Jose Canseco’s trunk. For posterity’s sake, here’s a compendium of all the top goat stories of the year: Keep reading »

12 Cheesy Inspirational Quotes I Pinned On Pinterest This Year (That Were Actually Good)

2013 was a year of enormous personal upheaval for me. I met my life partner and married him just five months later at City Hall. I lost a friend to suicide. I distanced myself from people who weren’t proving themselves to be interested in the caliber of friendship that I want to invest in. I made huge strides in standing up for myself and not taking other people’s bullshit — a lot of which had to do with the wedding.

Most of the changes that occurred were ultimately good for me. At least, that’s how I choose to look at them. All of the changes, though, required me to get out of my comfort zone  in order to figure out what was right for me. I’ve always been a risktaker, but this year felt especially poignant.  Keep reading »

2013: The Year In Assholes

Sigh. So many assholes, so little time. Unfortunately, there were many, many people who behaved like anuses this year, but I managed to whittle the list down to a final group of 13 sphincters whose shittiness really went above and beyond.

2013: This Year In Masturbation Failures

Self-love is a wonderful act, when done at the right time and in the right place. In 2013, we heard a lot about masturbation gone wrong from — Sydney Leathers‘ hardcore diddling porn to a Cosmopolitan blogger’s attempted NYC subway romp. Here’s a look back at this year in jerking, fapping, tugging, dinking … you get the point.

Listen, I love me some fun, thoughtless country party songs as much as the next girl (emphasis on the word “girl,” which is the closest thing to a name most male country artists will deign to call a woman), but over the past year, as bro country has exploded and completely taken over the charts, I’ve found myself growing bored and depressed by it. The sheer lack of women’s voices on country radio is upsetting enough; what’s worse is that the vast majority of the bro country tunes that dominate the airwaves are basically leftovers of the same song microwaved, sprinkled with casual misogyny, and served on a slightly different platter. Don’t believe me? Check out this video by Entertainment Weekly country critic Grady Smith. Keep reading »

2013: The Year In Patrick Stewart & Ian McKellen’s Amazing Friendship

I don’t think I have a best friend. (Well, a human one. Love you, Lu!) I have a handful of really close friends, and plenty of friends, and even more acquaintances. But a best friend? A partner in crime? Alas, I don’t think I do. But in 2014, I’d like to strengthen my existing friendships and make some new ones, with a little help from my favorite pair of celebrity besties, Sirs Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen. Their bromance, which the internet got to enjoy via the copious photos they posted to Twitter and Instagram, is such an inspiration. Click through to review what we can learn from their best bonding moments this year!

2013: The Year In GIFs That Got Us Through The Day

2013: This Year In GIFs That Got Us Through The Day

Forget retail therapy, I prefer to deal with stress by engaging in GIF therapy. It’s cheaper, faster and has a far longer-lasting effect than the high you get from a Sephora bender. From the LED baby to the baby walking on ice for the first time, and other things that don’t involve babies, I’d like to thank the following GIFs for bringing me unprecedented joy this year. Do yourself a favor and let them work their animated magic on your soul. Keep reading »
