Hate-Watching “Snog, Marry, Avoid”

  Generally speaking, I’m not a huge fan of makeover shows anyway. in the Venn Diagram of “Things I Hate” and “Things I Watch Ironically,” “Makeover Shows” stay squarely in the former category. Maybe it’s the little girl inside me, who remembers being forced to wear way-too-uncomfortable tights with dresses,[…]

LOST: my inspiration. FOUND: this stuff…

  So I just told you in my boat post that I’ve been struggling with finding “inspiration.” That’s pretty harsh, but it’s true. I’ve been actively searching for, but (largely) failing to find, things that excite me. Apologies in advance for sounding like a total jerk, but I’ve been going through a big period[…]

Good News! At Least The Tardigrades Will Survive

  Last week came in like a lion, and it’s going out like a lamb! It’s June, now. Holy crap. I completely didn’t see this month coming. #Sad? As you can see from my photo above, I went to the MoMA this week after my therapy session! This one is[…]

Good News: Some Things Shouldn’t Make Me Laugh (But They Do)

First of all, please go to this website and watch the video of the doggo who learned how to eat whipped cream straight from the canister. GO! And now for the obvious joke: “What breed of dog is this? Is she a “WHIP-IT?” Omg sometimes my brilliance hurts, it really hurts.[…]

Good News! This Week Is Over!… Good News!

Can we somehow reach the Barenaked Ladies for comment on this past week? Because I would hope they’d say something along the lines of “Wow, that’s a lot of stuff to have happen in a week.” or something.   Hi! I’m back again with some good news, and let’s kick[…]

GOOD NEWS

Hello hello hello and welcome to the first (slightly belated) GOOD NEWS of 2017! We’re merrily dancing on the razor’s edge of mutually assured destruction –– but because the human brain can only handle so much fear before it implodes, I’m focusing on only the things that make me happy,[…]

the best GOOD NEWS of the year, roundup

Awwwww you guuuyyys it’s my last weekly Good News roundup of 2016! You know, in years past, I would have felt a twinge of nostalgia saying “Last X of 20XX,” but I really don’t feel anything. TIME IS A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT, like virginity and breakfast. And besides, I doubt anyone’s going[…]

New Year’s Resolutions? Well, Why Not.

Retire the phrase “tfw.” It was funny for a while, but now I’ve got that feeling that it’s overplayed. Stop snarking on popular things — because sometimes popular things are popular because they’re good — like rosé, and Beyoncé (NOTE: I recognize that not all popular & good things have “é” in[…]

GOOD NEWS: Few And Far Between, But Still To Be Found

I hate myself for saying this, but this candle is LIT AF. *groan, shudder* Welcome back to the weekly GOOD NEWS. I had, um, the HARDEST TIME finding good news this week (do I say that every week?). Well, I guess that’s the point of the exercise, isn’t it? Embracing[…]

Not yr “Bubble”

I wanted to be “over it,” but I’m not “over it.” As much as it pains me to accept the comparison, I — much like the Pubescent-Elect — am upset over an SNL skit. First, you have to watch the video. Watch it aaaaaaaall the way to the end. That last[…]

Good News! “SMILE” – The Election Is Almost Over!

What a slog it’s been! Feels like this election has been going on for two years — which it actually almost has. So the Good News for today is that, in two days, we gain an extra hour of sleep (yay!) and in four days, for better or for worse, the campaigning[…]

Deconstructing The Love Affair With Zoella

As an Anglophile, I’m shocked it’s taken me so long to discover the beautiful world of Zoella, but rest assured, I am making up for lost time. With two YouTube channels full of a plethora of videos and numerous guest appearances on her friends’ channels, a newly-minted Zoella fan has[…]
