Taylor Tomlinson, Pro Bed Making and Thanksgiving Desserts

Orly Minazad
Orly Minazad is a freelance writer and regrets it every day of her life. She moved to the States from Iran in 1991 with her family seeking better opportunities only to waste them earning a Masters in Professional Writing degree from USC which no longer exists, cost a lot of money, and for which she has nothing to show. No, she is not bitter at all. Why do you ask? Oh, you didn’t, ok. She lives with her husband and son in Los Angeles where she spends the day loading and unloading the dishwasher.

I don’t appreciate celebrities using Halloween as an excuse to look hotter. I’m looking at you, Adele. Give us one night where you look weird or at least crazy. Take a note from Janelle Monae. (My Modern Met)

No amount of over-the-top costume can outdo Japan’s “Mundane Halloween” costumes like “cashier forced to wear holiday-specific partial costume” and my favorite, “parent trying to play Mario Kart.” (Core77)

I have never had thoughts about Princess Kate other than the fact that she seems dead inside, but learning she likes swimming in cold, dark and rainy conditions I’m now convinced she is not only dead inside but is also a psychopath and we need to watch our backs. No one is safe. (Celebitchy)

This is a complicated story but short version, a company wants to legalize at least some cocaine use in food and drinks. I say we hear them out. (Vice)

I wish I cared about something as much as these professional bed makers do about tucking in sheets.

I would be happy to receive any of these white elephant gifts, except the “low-key torture” alarm clock on wheels that runs away if you try to put the snooze button on. (Engadget)

Al Pacino has to pay his girlfriend Noor Alfallah $30k a month in child support, $13k for a night nurse (yes, you read that correctly) and not to mention the $110k up front. We all judged her for sleeping with an old man but who’s laughing now? Noor. She’s laughing at all of us. (Page Six)

Megan Thee Stallion’s new song “Cobra” is a roller coaster of horny and sad emotions.

This woman claims you can use any drink to make icing for cake. Let’s hear her out. (Lifehacker)

Meet “Mom. Texan. Herbalist. Aromatherapist. Vegan” Kelly Shepard, a fake person at HBO who trolls TV critics for not liking their shows. She may not be real in life, but she will always be real in our hearts. (Jezebel)

It’s early November, so you have plenty of time to go over these 125 Thanksgiving dessert recipes to see what you’d like to make, only to give up and run to Trader Joes last minute and buy whatever is left and pretend you totally meant to get these vegan scones and you weren’t just desperate.
