Friday Newsflash!

Yes folks, it's back! And hopefully it's as great as ever.

1. The Kardashian Kristmas Kard has come out ...

... and its as absurd as ever. Though decidedly less asinine as the last two years (here and here), it's still pretty ridic. They do look pretty happy and cheery, which is an improvement. But, whats the deal with the not-alive kitty in the box?  But really, what is that? This whole scene is so just ludicrous to me. My family could not be more different than these jokesters.

2. What would the newsflash be without a little space nerdery? Welp, this could take the cake. Science out of the UK cites a planet that could, maybe, possibly, be supporting sophisticated life. More sophisticated than us! A mere 12 light years away, there's a star similar to our sun called Tau Ceti with five planets orbiting it (this is actual real fact). It's visible with the naked eye:

The furthest planet from the star, named Planet E, is the right distance and temperature to have a climate very much like ours. The planet is also MUCH older, so its conceivable that its inhabitants are much more advanced. This excites me to no end. Let's think for a second about these supersmarts living out there knowing all the stuff we don't. Do they know why there's a dead kitten in Kardashian Kard? Bet not.

3. We haven't even talked about this:

Kate Middleton is pregnant. PREGNANT. As you know, the Royal Wedding was a big event for me. I'm so addicted to WillKat, it's unhealthy. I want to be a princess. I want to be a pregnant princess. This is the most important bump watch of my life ... and that's a statement coming from me. I haven't even dreamed about her getting fat and undesirable as a preggo ... also a pretty significant remark. Royal bump watch will remain a news item for me indefinitely, so just strap in for lots of chatter about it.

4. There's now Girls nail polish:

So, Girls is one of the new things I've gotten addicted to while we've been away from each other, but more on that later. I have some questions about this nail polish line. First of all, why does the set cost $45? That's alot of money for nail polish, and I buy the good stuff. Aren't the Girls barely paying their rent? Isn't that part of the Girls' appeal? How did they decide on the colors for each character? I like Shoshanna the best but am the least like her. How did they not read my mind on that? Also, I'm super annoyed at this brand expanding to stupid lady products. Girls is better than that. Or so I thought. I'm not better than it though, I like all the colors alot and will probably pre-order. Dammit, I'm such a slave.

5. The world didn't end. Really. I must admit, I was looking forward to feasting my eyes on something like this:

Yesterday I had this whole, "what would I do if today was the last day of Earth", ex-essential crisis thing. Like which love ones would I call, where would I take the Prince on his last walk, what would be my last meal, etc. (The answer to the food thing is chicken nuggets and macaroni & cheese, btw.) Now I guess we just go back to perusing the internet for nail polish and  princess baby bumps. It brings some sobering reality to my life. Womp, womp.

Back to Christmas elfing! Thanks for coming back friends. Feels good!

  3. SO glad you, and Friday newsflash are back!

  4. So glad you are back! Yay! Just started following you on instagram too :-) Merry Christmas!

  5. Yay! My favorite series! I saw the K's card the other day and did not notice the cat at all. Hahaha! You know it's a terrible card when Scott is my favorite part. And holy photoshopping Khloe! I love her and think her size is JUST FINE, but I think that's Kim's body with her head. I love Girls (and Shoshanna is my favorite character, though I'm nothing like her). I agree with you, the line of polish does kind of blow my mind. Did Lena Dunham even know about this?


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
