Savage restaurant reviews are a glorious art form. This end-of-year roundup of snappy gems does not disappoint.
But if you’d prefer to smile at restaurant staff doing a stellar job, this story from Sara Benincasa will do the trick.
I am not normally into “kids say the darnedest things” type of humour, but I think this little conversation is a pretty good Atheistspinstermas story.
Someone posted Lindy West’s vicious Love Actually recap in the comments on Jez yesterday, and of course I had to read it again. So hilarious, and so accurate. (And such a great way to kick of this wonderful Atheistspinstermas season.)
Oh my god, Caden W. Go fuck yourself, lol.
Angela Merkel’s Letters to Santa on the Hairpin is sweet and funny.
I adore Gudetama–it is just so bleakly, so wrongly, hilarious.
So of course I have a couple of items from the Holika Holika + Gudetama collaboration: the peeling gel, and the melting lip button.
I think the Gudetama lippie is a great companion for my angry-faced Tonymoly gloss bar. I like to imagine them sitting together in my bathroom, whispering Nietzsche quotes at each other (while my Jack Black lipgloss hits on all my Revlon balm stains).
Which means: I was very happy to read this is fun little interview with the head Gudetama designer about the character’s genesis and meaning.
Now if you’ll excuse me I have to go stare into the abyss…
I always enjoy Shade Court, but this is a particularly good one–both for the shade thrown, and Kara Brown’s snappy writing.
Ah, bless you, Kevin Bacon.

I would not have thought that Harry Styles’ real estate doings would interest me at all, but this look at his latest LA home is quite entertaining. I’m sort of into the putting green?
