I'm really happy for Rosie O'Donnell.
Like baptisms and brises, quitting your blog is an emotional rite of passage, the moment at which the heart of a casual blogger begins to pump the blood of a total Internerd freak: I am tired of blogging, but I am not so tired of blogging as to restrain myself from blogging about it and blogging about how I will no longer be blogging. When your brain gets to that mental state, you are beyond the...
“This woman kept calling animal control,” said Meehan. “She wanted to name it after herself. I think they came and got it. The carcass. Whatever it was.” But did they? The East Hampton branch of animal control referred Daily Intel to a supervisor who did not return calls for comment. And Navitski, of Evolutionary Media Group, says her friend’s sister (who...
So the Montauk monster is really just a viral marketing campaign for some pro-life org, right?

Sometimes a book deal comes along that you never knew you were waiting for, but, once it’s announced, you realize it has been your secret wish all along. Which explains our reaction to the news that Dustin Diamond, whose high-pitched nerdy exploits as Samuel “Screech” Powers figured prominently in nearly thirteen (!) years of Saved by the Bell incarnations, has jumped on the...
As it turns out, we're totally okay with dicks,...
Me: Does our comment filter take issue with dick and dicks, but not cunt?

alexbalk: BREAKING: I am too lazy to take the elevator downstairs to buy a slice of pizza. I’m too lazy to even go to the bathroom. But since I also can’t be bothered to get the food which would precipitate digestion, it’s not as much of a problem as you’d expect.
Moments when I lost my innocence: …it was 1988, when Estelle Getty won the Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a comedy series. We were just 8 years old and watching the coverage with our parents, and it was the first time we saw Getty out of her elaborate makeup. We were horrified. What have they done to Sophia?! The white hair and saggy wrinkles were gone; in their place was a hardly...

Wouldn’t it be awesome if Julia Allison adopted Jessica Roy? Project!

Me: I’ll have a small skim macchiato, please. Barista: Is two percent okay? Me: Oh, are you out of skim? Barista: No, we’ve got some. We have this conversation every day.
