Life Dream Status: I Joined The Best Online Wine Club

As previously noted time and time again, I am a wine enthusiast. (Wino, if you're nasty.) But I've recently taken my enthusiasm to a whole other level by becoming a member of Tasting Room by LOT18, an online wine club that tailors each boozy delivery to your specific palate.

Zac Efron Was In Rehab?!?

Zac Efron checked into rehab secretly for alcohol abuse and checked out five months ago, according to People and TMZ. Dropping that condom on the red carpet makes a lot more sense now.

Research Suggests That More Intelligent People Drink More, And Begin Earlier In Life

Science is full of surprises, that much is true, but I can't say that this would be one of them.

25 Reasons College Is Not At All Like Real Life
