Happy Friday, everyone! This Very Special Pajiba Love marks my 2,000th piece for this site. I’m exceptionally proud to have been allowed to infiltrate your mind spaces for so long. Also, it only took me 1,999 posts to change my avatar from a generic male silhouette to something infinitely better.
Henry Cavill gave an interview and I can see how a lot of people would think he comes off like a total ass. He talks a lot about how he doesn’t just act for the art of it, but the money is really important. Personally, I wish more celebrities would acknowledge the distinction between actor and movie star, because they really are, in a lot of ways, different jobs, and money is a big part of that. And sure, it’s kinda gross to go on and on about how great it is to fly first class and eat great food and bang 19 year olds, but at least he knows it’s gross? Maybe? I actually can’t tell if that makes it any better. (Celebitchy)

Cool thing: “Marvel launched program for girl scientists.” Not cool thing: YOU CAN JUST CALL THEM SCIENTISTS, YOU KNOW. (USA Today)
A Syracuse diner is offering a “Dictator Obama” special which is eggs and toast for $3.59 plus tax, which is a pretty good deal except the tax is 27.99 BECAUSE MIND BLOWN IT’S A METAPHOR. The whole thing is hilarious, but the real joy comes when the diner owner ends the interview after certain details of his personal life come up. I need to start ending every conversation with the words “You can google Jesus and find bad stuff, too.” (Syracuse)
Apparently Instagramming your food really does make it taste better. I owe a lot of teenagers a lot of apologies. (AV Club)
A brilliant imagined scenario of internet douchewad Milo Yiannapoulos ONCE AGAIN being censored by those dirty, evil feminists. (P&CB)
Looking for a few good books? Consider hitting up Cannonball Read on Facebook (or Twitter) to ask for a recommendation. Last week’s request was "sci/fi fantasy with strong female leads." CBR suggests The Girl with All the Gifts by M. R. Carey and a few other books. How do you find your next read? (Cannonball Read 8)
ETA: YOU GUYS, I MADE MY 2,000TH MISTAKE! (Just kidding, it’s definitely a lot more.) I forgot my traditional Friday cute animal video. And no, my dumb kitten up there doesn’t count. Or the bug-eyed monsters. Here, have a party.
