Well isn’t this adorkable? Oh crap, I just remembered we hate that word. Fine. Let me start over. Isn’t this lovely? Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, back together again, this time covering Nancy Wilson’s “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” Julie would absolutely hate me for saying this, but luckily she is on a plane to Mexico right now, so here it goes: I really kind of wish Zooey and JGL would give romance a shot in real life. I like them together. By the way, if any of you send this post to Julie, I’ll know.
So this reminds me — what the heck are you doing for New Year’s Eve, Frisky readers? So far, I have no plans. I am either going to Rhode Island to hang out with someone very tall, chilling out on my couch with someone very furry, or doing something in between, like drinking champagne straight from the bottle on a street corner in Brooklyn. What are YOUR New Year’s Eve plans?
Nickelodeon is not usually a channel we’d be caught watching unless there’s a “Ren & Stimpy” marathon on. We may just have to TiVo an episode of the kiddie program “iCarly” in the new year, though: a teaser for the 2012 season is out and First Lady Michelle Obama stops by the iCarly webshow to dance her socks off with Miranda Cosgrove and friends. Too cute! And if I’m not mistaken, that’s “Saturday Night Live”‘s Taran Killam playing a Secret Serviceman. Now pardon me while I find a nine-year-old who can tell me what channel Nickelodeon actually is. [YouTube] Keep reading »
I don’t think it’s anyone’s business to tell parents who have suffered a miscarriage how to behave. People express grief in all sorts of ways, even ways you might consider distasteful. That said, a video message to miscarried baby Jubilee Shalom Duggar strikes me as pro-life messaging first and foremost. “So often in society, babies are looks on as a problem, trial or responsibility,” mama Michelle Duggar reads, “but God says babies are a blessing. We do not believe that babies are a bother or a headache, a financial drainer or a career interrupter.” What a lovely way to honor Jubiliee: by guilt-tripping other women who have terminated unwanted pregnancies!

If I had my way, I might change the name of The Frisky over to The Siku, so that we could cover polar bear baby Siku all the time. It would just be pictures and videos of his roly-poly belly, his tiny tongue and his sleeping little polar bear form all the time. But sadly, I don’t have overarching editorial control of TF, so you’ll just have to settle for this video from “The Today Show,” featuring the latest update on the abandoned polar bear. It seems he’s gained a whole five pounds while in captivity, and now weighs seven pounds! His favorite activities still seem to be napping and getting belly rubs, so otherwise not much has changed. Zookeeper Frank Larson, call me if you need some help or want to take a smoke break or whatever. [MSNBC]
