This past week, the internet was abuzz with the racist Star Wars boycott news, but we were too busy appreciating the cuteness of the cast celebrating the trailer.
It’s the first day of June and even though we’re nearly halfway into the year, the news about police brutality and violence against PoCs continues to make waves.
Are you still reeling from that April Fools’ Day prank pulled by a Happy Endings writer toying with our emotions about a possible reunion?

So, um, April Fools! I don’t think we fooled anyone for more than a second or two, but today was a lot of fun. We did not get purchased by anyone, so we’re all still working for internet hugs. And no worries, we’ll be back with our regularly scheduled shenanigans on Monday, which also happens […]

Between healthcare reform, overturning DADT, appointing the first-ever Chief Technology Officer, and establishing the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, I think we can all agree that the POTUS has done a bang-up job so far.
Oprah’s had her share of A-HA! moments, and while my journey isn’t as epic as Lady O’s, I thought I’d share with you an A-HA! (or, rather, A-HAttie!) moment that I’ve had. I’d like to share it because it’s important, and because I think it could help the many, many of you who aren’t as […]
