Gloriously forget yourself and plunge…into these masterpieces

Gloriously forget yourself and plunge…into these masterpieces

If I ran the world, which I clearly do not, every day, everyone would drop everything and read for two hours straight. Kind of like a literary siesta.  “Drop everything and read” is coincidentally a phrase I learned from a book and in order to facilitate my own adherence to the D.E.A.R. principles if it indeed becomes a thing, I try to never be more than six feet from a book if I can help it.…

Clue: the Emma Approved Edition

"Emma Woodhouse has the best of intentions when it comes to being a lifestyle coach, but her crazy matchmaking tendencies leave everyone wondering if maybe she’s a bit…clueless."

The object of the game remains the same as the original, but instead of solving a murder, players attempt to discover who Emma is trying to set up, and where she plans to do it.

To read the modified rules and download the game, click here.

Emma was caught in Alex’s office trying to set herself up with Knightley.

Call me, Pixar

An Open Letter to Milwaukee: Thanks for the Memories

Dear Milwaukee—

Nearly two years after I first moved into my tiny little railroad apartment on your East Side, three stories up, surrounded by churches, Irish music, and limited parking, I’m moving out. Not unlike Anthony and Billy Joel, movin’ out so I can move up in the world. Finally, it’s time for me to try to break into the exciting world…

John Greens deleted cameo!




The only thing that would make this better is if John had said “Best wishes” at the end.

It’s Always Fun to Yell at the Screen

It’s Always Fun to Yell at the Screen

The only things I wish I could get back in my life are the 91 minutes and $4 I spent in October 2008 to see “Beverly Hills Chihuahua” in theaters. In my defense, I had no control over choosing the movie, it was close to 11pm, it was freshman year of college, and I was still a little woozy from my first beignets. I try to live with no regrets, but seriously, that was a mistake. Sure, it was a…
