How cute are those two with their sneakers? Golden Globes Sunday can't get here fast enough. And how were your Holidays, my little jingle bells? What did you get up to over the brea-ON SECOND THOUGHT, DON'T TELL ME.

Me? My holiday was pretty tame. I spent much of it catching up on the TV shows I've Been Meaning To Watch. One of them was the superb "Portlandia," and just in time as they've released this absolutely delightful video on TV spoilers. Uh, it contains spoilers.

Speaking of TV catch-up, here are the most important TV dates to look forward to in 2013 including the return of "Community," "Arrested Development," and "Game of Thrones" and the end of "Breaking Bad." (WG)

Lord, I had forgotten how cat-faced those White Walkers are.

Check this list of professions to found out if your co-workers are actually psychopaths, or if their passive-agressive comments just make it seem that way. (Boing Boing)

Pixar has released some concept art for four of their upcoming projects. The Dia De Los Muertos sketch looks delightfully like old-school Disney (hopefully without the old-school racism). (Coming Soon)

I lived in Mexico for a bit so the concept of chocolate covered bugs doesn't faze me even a little, but the rest of the entries on this "weird foods covered in chocolate" list are seriously horf-worthy. Slim Jims? Really? (Neatorama)

Pajiba darling, Jennifer Lawrence, went all sex kitten for "Vanity Fair." I'm glad to see her requisite "Baywatch" red bathing suit photo made an appearance. (Celebitchy)

Jay-Z is collaborating on the Great Gatsby soundtrack. I know I'm often stuffy about book-related things, but after the fantastic Django Unchained soundtrack, I'm ready for a little more anachronism. (FSR)

Speaking of book-related things, have you signed up for Cannonball Read 5 yet? I hope you will! I know there are some of you quiet, bookwormy types out there and it's an excellent way to get involved with the site. (Cannonball Read 5)

And speaking of Django, did you see that there are action figures for the Tarantino revenge flick? Nathaniel has some suggestions as to how you could pose Goggins and Foxx. Even weirder? The Les Miserables Street Fighter-style video game. (TFE)

I'm not going to embed this Gollum/Smeagol rap battle video, mostly because I'm ashamed at how loudly that awkward fish pun made me laugh. (io9)

Speaking of fish, my beloved Ze Frank is here with some facts about the Angler Fish. Trust me. It's worth it.

And there's something a little too soft about my heart this time of year because, yes indeed, I'm posting a cat video. So enjoy these common New Year's Resolutions as enacted by kitties.

Finally, don't be too hard on yourself when it comes to resolutions, my little procrastinators. Take XKCD's advice to heart. "If at first you do't succeed, that's one data point."

    Love the photo of Amy and Tina. More them, less no-talent reality "stars" please, universe.

    I've yet to see Django, but is it weird that I really want a Goggins action figure? I'd hope it would have a pull string that lets it recite awesome Boyd Crowder speeches.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    And thanks for the TV listings...I've been meaning to check when I need to renew my HBO subscription...

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Man...Angler Fish showing up everywhere lately. I even had a little speech about them in the last musical I did.

    The NY Times had a blog asking for suggestions on what you think your loved ones should resolve for the New Year. The Times commenters had lovely, straightforward answers. I think the Pajibans could be far more interesting were that topic to be a comment diversion...

  • competitivenonfiction

    Holy crap. I didn't even watch the angler fish video, but that link was enough to drive me from a totally normal fear of being in water that has fish in it to a full on case of ichthyophobia.

  • John W

    Angler fish video= genius.

  • BWeaves

    That Angler fish video was adorable. I loved how the narrator used very nontechnical jargon.

    So far, the weirdest chocolate covered thing I've had (and made) that is chocolate covered, peanut butter filled, Ritz crackers. It's my husband's favorite new snack. However, since those chocolate covered onions include the disgusting skin, I don't even know how you would eat those.

  • Ben

    On a semi relevant note I used my break to finally watch all of Parks and Recreation and that show is fucking amazing and why in gods name did I take so long to watch it!?

  • apsutter

    That's what I said when I finally watched it last Xmas!

  • e jerry powell

    Angler fish are fucking scary, but apparently Julia Child found them quite tasty.

  • Bert_McGurt

    I've got to disagree with your horfiness scale Joanna. About the only things on that list I wouldn't at least try are the seaweed, Slim Jims, and the Paula Deen potato bullsh*t. The rest (especially the jerky and peppers) look like they might even be enjoyable.

  • Scully

    Put a bird on it.

  • lowercase_ryan

    That ball gag screams Doran.
