I am both hungry and a believer that others should feel my pain, so come walk down Food Blog Lane so we can all torture ourselves together:

The Busboys of Immaculate Infatuation review a couple of spots in Charlie’s neighborhood:

David’s “up one in the dap count” at Prosperity Dumplings.

The Pintester takes a whack at cinnamon roll waffles:

Spoiler alert: this test is a success! Hello, this weekend’s activity.

#FTW: Blogads creation wins IAC “Best Advertising Online”

Blogads, Wieden+Kennedy, and ABC have been presented with the Internet Advertising Competition’s “Best Advertising Online Ad” award for 2013.

The award was given for a series of interstitial ads on PerezHilton.com that responded to reader behavior and tied into the theme of ABC’s “GCB,” which features former nemeses who hide their disdain behind the veil of Southern charm. The show starred Kristen Chenoweth and was produced by Darren Star (of “Sex and the City” fame).

If a reader wanted to tweet a PerezHilton.com story, a pop up reminded them “Thou Shalt Not Tweet More Than 140 Characters.” Other behavior on the site prompted similar commandments, such as “Thou shalt not look at sexy photos” or “Thou shalt not covet another man’s wife” when viewing stories about attractive married celebs.

A big congratulations to our sales, programming, design and project management teams for their work. Thank you IAC!

Blogads joins other IAC prize winners in other categories including The Coca-Cola Company, Target, Huge, and CNN.

First up: Healthy Advice

I’m not afraid to order a salad; I just never want one. But this list is for guys, so that makes it ok.

I fully support WSWCM writing a self-help book.


Second round: Misbehaving animals

You know you’re a cat lady when these pictures look adorable rather than creepy. Guilty.

Jetta- no body, no murder. Clean up the evidence next time!


Last, but not least: Pretty Little Liars’ Season Finale

Betches Love This recap the finale with their signature snark:

These recaps are the only way I’m able to keep up with what’s happening in the show. How do the tweens do it?


Possessionista recaps the episode’s style:

These high schoolers’ wardrobes are insane. Yikes. Wait, they’re not real. Phew!
