The list of Golden Globe Nominees was announced today, and though there were no major surprises, I love pretty much anyone who’s got a shot at winning an award. And that, friends, is an exciting prospect for my 2011 TV schedule. So while I was making a mental food-shopping list for award night (Tostitos, Diet Coke, twizzlers…hey, January 16th is that far off!), my mind really got to thinking...
I love the holidays and all, but there is one thing about this time of year that really, really sucks - most of our favorite TV shows are going on hiatus. I mean, how am I supposed to get by without my weekly Finn Hudson fix without new Glee episodes? Luckily, the glee gang gives us something to hold on to in their absence: tons of amazing music.
January's Glamour cover claims that it's the happy issue. Coincidentally, this is one of the lightest mags I've ever picked up. I found this issue uninspired at worst, and bland at best.

I like to be numbed by celebrity gossip. Whenever I'm having a bad day, I run to the back of the magazine stands, snatch up an US Weekly and bury my sorrows into all of the celebrity problems I can't even fathom being involved with. And yeah, all that "celebrity cellulite!" and "stars without their makeup!" stuff is great, but it's the relationship gossip that really wets my palette.
The holiday season, I’ve come to realize, is all about the traditions. Baking cookies. Listening to festive music. Wrapping presents. Eating way too much in a way too short an amount of time. Shopping for days. Decorating. It wouldn’t be Christmas without all of it. But really, probably my favorite Christmas tradition is the endless Christmas movies.

Let’s be honest. There were times when you weren’t sure you’d make it. You were optimistic back in August, but less so as the months wore on. You started your countdown on Halloween, and were ready to tear your own hair out over Thanksgiving break. By the time finals week had rolled around you had already checked out. But somehow, somehow you’ve managed to make it through.
You didn't leave all your work until Sunday night did you? What!?! You did. That's okay. No stress. You'll get it all done. We're so sure that you'll get it all done that we're giving you a few more excuses to procrastinate.

I am currently studying abroad in an unspecified location in the world. We'll just say... not in the U.S. (really narrowing it down there). My host university always organizes events at bars and such for students, but my roommates and I usually just pass on them because they just wind up being these huge all-American fests.
December is the month of holiday parties and family get-togethers. The people are cheerful, the cities are festive, and everyone is in a fabulous mood. But sometimes, sometimes, you just want to get away from all of that holiday cheer and see someone blow something up. And that’s why holiday movie releases exist.

This week was pretty eh. I mean, between finals, grad school applications, and the 25 feet of snow outside, we’ve all had a rough few days. Luckily we've been writing feverishly (what else are we supposed to do when we’re cooped up inside?) so you have plenty to read while you’re procrastinating that 10-page research paper.
Ahhh the holidays! Time for cookies, ornaments, drinks, and songs! And lots of love. Tons of new couples are blossoming, but how many will really make it into the New Year? Probably not many. But that's Hollywood! There's new couples, marriages, and a bunch of crazy as usual.
It's that time of year when it seems like everything is gray and bleak....and that's why we thought it was a great day for a comeback tour for this awesome video. Jessica, one of our favorite preschoolers, reminds us just how awesome our lives can be. Because when times get rough, and writing a 12-page paper in 3 hours is rough, we all need our daily affirmations.
Why yes, dear readers, that is indeed a grown man in a wizard cap waving a wand. And what exactly is that man doing with the wand? Turning on his TV, obvi.
Finals Week has officially crept into our lives like the Grinch who stole Thirsty Thursdays. I know I’ve spent the past three days straight camping out in the library, creating classical music radio stations on my Pandora and eating Wheat Thins and coffee for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

It’s wonderful to learn from your mistakes of the past year, I really believe that. Not wearing white undies under black leggings, always putting those comfy inserts into your super-high heels, throwing an extra tampon in your handbag. They’re valuable lessons that should be embraced and carried into the New Year.
I woke up this morning in a mood. I had a fight with my Ish last night. (You know, the guy in your life who isn’t quite your boyfriend, but is more than the guy you’re dating; he’s boyfriend-ish). It wasn’t even really a fight. It was me being frustrated at him for various reasons, expressing that frustration, and him responding in an even more frustrating, nonchalant way.

Blue Valentine (in theaters December 31st) stars Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams as a married couple with an imperfect relationship. You may not know that, but you probably know that the film has received an NC-17 rating from the Motion Picture Association of America (aka the MPAA) for a scene in which Gosling’s character performs oral sex on William’s character.

Sure we love good-looking, funny, charming, magical, stand-up comedian, scrub-wearing Jewish men. But at the end of the day, our hearts lay with our one true love: Jewish food. Rain or shine, straightener or no-straightener, memorable Bat Mitzvah party favor or throwaway gift, Jewish food has always been there for us.

Andy Samburg is the kind of Jew that gives us faith. Faith that Jewish guys who are taller than 5'6 exist. Faith that the stereotypical Jew can be hot. Faith that there are Jewish boys who don't become doctors, lawyers or investment bankers. He's like a dream come true and our enormous crush on this SNL funny man is borderline inappropriate.
Like every fun-loving girl looking to procrastinate doing anything productive, I spend a large majority of my time reading celebrity blogs. I spend the rest of my time getting irrationally angry at the stupid things that celebrities say. So when I came across a recent interview with Angelina once again saying one thing, while doing the complete opposite, I got so angry I just had to blog about it.
The last few weeks of the semester can get a little stressful. And not because you just can’t seem to find the perfect present for everyone on your list (or in my case because you keep getting distracted by Macy’s shoe department and never get around to buying those other presents), but because of finals. Remember those? Probably not.
The editors at Seventeen Magazine probably have more holiday spirit than your crazy neighbor who keeps his Christmas decorations and manger scene up (and lit) all year round. If my internship there taught me one thing, it's this: the December/January holiday bonanza of an issue is more crucial than every fashion magazine's September issue combined.
