Kate Beckinsale’s cat, Clive, is my everything this Christmas! - (Lainey)
Kylie Jenner’s toddler, Stormi, got a Christmas “playhouse” from grandma Kris. I put “playhouse” in quotes because that thing is bigger than my first real house (and has A/C). As Ursula would add here, ‘Eat the rich!’ - (Cosmo)
Ugh, I think I’ve heard “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” 12 times this week. That song blows so hard. My friend Mike writes about why the song sucks, line by line. - (Medium)
Some see Adele, others see Sarah Paulson. It’s the white/gold or blue/black dress all over again! (Except it’s Adele.)

Heather shared this in our Slack and it made me wish I lived on the coast. “If you live by the ocean, you can feel less guilty about cutting down a real tree for a Xmas tree by recycling it to stop erosion” - (PilotOnline)
It’s not just Armie Hammer, but he is among several other celebrities and influencers like Ryan Phillipe, Stella Maxwell, Sofia Richie, and Alessandra Ambrosio who clearly accepted some form of quid pro quo for attending a music festival in Saudi Arabia as part of some nakedly transparent effort to make everyone suddenly forget about the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

I hate even thinking about dogs and cats who don’t have homes for Christmas, but this little bit of doggy joy does make me smile and hopefully puts a grin on your faces too. Shelter dogs picking out their own Christmas toys. - (Yahoo)
Prince Phillip, who is 98 years old, is in the hospital after a fall and with “a pre-existing condition.” He doesn’t want anyone to disrupt their holiday to visit him. I can absolutely see my dad being like that. “Don’t haul the family into the hospital to see me. Have your dinner, open gifts, blah, blah. I’ll see you in a couple of days.” My mother-in-law, on the other hand, would likely disown us if she were in the hospital and we left her all alone at Christmas. I can see both sides, is what I’m saying. - (Celebitchy)
Ok, so not all service dogs graduate. Some? Well, some have personalities that don’t mesh with a service lifestyle. They’re still good dogs!

I live pretty close to Kentucky and I can’t even tell you how happy I was that Matt Bevin, the Republican Governor, lost in the last election. That man is a flaming piece of shit. See for yourself. - (The Root)
I’m not familiar with Zara Larsson, but if she continues wearing clothes like this, I’m going to have a very uncharitable opinion of her. - (GFY)
Congratulations to kella on her first Cannonball! For the past 30 years, reading The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson has gotten kella into the holiday spirit. In this children’s book from the ’80s, a regular and well-organized church pageant is invaded by the Herdman kids, because they heard there were snacks. "But when they bully their way into all the main parts of the pageant, it ends up being less polished and perfect, and more of a beautiful and accurate picture of what that first Christmas must have really been like." Do you have a yearly seasonal media tradition? (Cannonball Read 11)
Dustin is a good boy!
