I know I linked to Rita Ora pictures yesterday, but I can’t help it, she just keeps going out in public! - (GFY)

You better watch out, you better not cry… oh, crap, no, I’m totally crying. Santa Barack is coming to town.

Nick and Priyanka had yet another wedding ceremony and it looks like they’ll probably have a couple more. And I thought my courthouse ceremony and then a wedding for family and friends a month later was excessive. - (Lainey)

Oh, my heart. Look at their beautiful, furry faces. - (Bored Panda)

Do you have to fight with your kids to go to bed before midnight on New Year’s Eve? Netflix has you covered this year with fake NYE countdowns! - (PW)

THIS is what your shitty uncle or drunk racist pepaw is going to be on about this Christmas: Gingerbreadmen. Thanks, Fox News. - (Dlisted)

There’s a new Trump ad begging you to leave a “Thank you” message for the thin-skinned toddler-in-chief. And you could do that. Orrrr….. - (Vice)

Worst Chris is doing the intermittent fasting thing and is losing weight. I’ve been unintentionally doing the intermittent fasting thing my whole life, mostly because I’m pretty lazy and also the thought of eating anything in the morning nauseates me, but I’m still a chunk, so I feel like I’m probably not doing it right. - (Celebitchy)

Our own Roxana wrote about Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon for Bright Wall/Dark Room’s Food issue. Because cannibalism counts as food! - (BWDR)

YAY! Something positive.

Eliza Dushku is allll out of fucks and is finally getting to tell her side of the Michael Weatherly harassment shit. He’s a garbage monster and the network is a sulfur pit. - (Boston Globe)

I can’t add anything to this. “After Bloodbath, The National Zoo’s Naked Mole-Rats Finally Choose Their Queen” - (DCist)

Vulture has the story behind that Weezer sketch on SNL this weekend from the writers who watched it, and this exchange is fantastic. (Vulture)

I honestly think when we wrote the line “‘Pork and Beans’ is better than ‘Buddy Holly,’” none of us believed that. I was watching interviews of people actually debating that, and I just want to apologize to America, because we wrote that …

Alan: As a joke!

Steven: Yeah, as a joke, to get a reaction from people.

Alan: We sat in that room trying to think of what the most absurd statement to make about Weezer was, and that was the one that we made.

Steven: When I saw people debating that, I wanted to throw up because I felt terrible.

Alan: Oh, it feels bad! When Matt says it, it feels bad. We made a man with an Academy Award say those words.

Kate shared this in the Overlord slack, “It will never get old, this being trotted out each year. At least for me.” Tori added, “‘Hi, Ariana? We’re gonna do a song, wanna help? No no, no need to sing. Just hold onto Chris Kattan and look resigned. Cool!’” - (YouTube)

Have you ever tried to explain something intangible to a 5-year-old? In Anne Herbauts’ What Color is the Wind?, a boy asks everyone he comes across to describe the color of the wind. Everyone gives him a different answer. The Chancellor recommends it for children, teens and adults. "This book is built around the premise that sometimes when we want to define something that is abstract, we can’t always find just one definition that gives us a true understanding." (Cannonball Read 10)

Two things: 1) This is how I feel every time my husband makes me leave the house for interactions with other people, and 2) This is also basically every day with our bad cat, Pixie, pulling her out of somewhere she’s not supposed to be. h/t Humberto Peña
