800 of you awesome, awesome people inexplicably have liked my Facebook page.
If you’re reading this, and you haven’t already, go over there and like it… because I post lots of stuff over there that doesn’t make it to this page…
Also, in honor of my new favorite meme, “Success Kid”, here are some of my favorites…. more after the jump!
*cries* Remember when Facebook was just for college students/young people? This Mark Zuckerberg interview will bring you back to those days. Have fun reminiscing the time when your parents couldn’t write on your wall, and you didn’t have to hide your tagged photos in fear that a coworker will see a new tagged photo of you from friday where you’re passed out on someone’s front lawn before you have time to delete it.
The funniest/most ironic part to me is when Mark talks about how his goal isn’t to “take over the world” and saying he created Facebook to simply be a resource for college students to find out information about other students, and that’s how he wanted to keep it. Makes sense, right? He was a socially awkward Harvard student, so how appropriate for him to create a tool to help him prepare for social situations to potentially make them less awkward. Going to parties immediately following the creation of Facebook probably went something like this for Mark:
“Oh, yeah, I checked you out on The Facebook before I left tonight and I saw that you’re into jujutsu. I recently started studying Bartitsu and Juto and maybe we can get together sometime and meditate? We can talk about techniques, maybe take notes. Want to make a powerpoint?”
When that resulted in exactly zero dates and quite a few situations where things got MORE awkward, Mark was probably like, “FUCK THIS, this isn’t helping my social life AT. ALL. Let’s take over the world and start letting all the old people join and we’ll become millionaires.” Then Justin Timberlake was like, “Mark, a million dollars isn’t cool. You know what’s cool? A BILLION DOLLARS. And Jujutso.” And that’s the story of how Facebook was opened to your grandma.
Emma Stone covers the August edition of Vanity Fair magazine. I loved the article and interview! It makes her love her more if that’s even possible. You can read more on Vanity Fair:
On paparazzi and getting recognized by people: “Sometimes people recognize me, but they’re more like, ‘Oh, hey!’” As Stone’s star rises, however—the actress will appear in The Help, Friends with Benefits, and Crazy, Stupid, Love this summer—so does the presence of the paparazzi. “He [a paparazzo] stands up while I’m walking to my car and is like, ‘Hey, Emma! Listen, I’m going to delete these pics. Here’s my card,” Stone recalls of a recent encounter with a paparazzo. “‘If you ever go to the beach with your friends or walk out of your house in your pajamas, call me.’” Stone, confused, refused his card. “He’s like, ‘But I’m deleting these pictures, see?’ … These guys try to strike up a deal with you so you feel like they’re your friend. I didn’t even know that was a thing—that people would call them.”
On Facebook, Twitter, and talking about her personal life: Stone, who rarely tweets and shut off her Facebook account after she “got addicted to FarmVille,” admits to Wolfe that she is still grappling with certain aspects of being in the public eye—dating, for one. “Talking about this stuff is pretty new,” Stone, who won’t say if she is single or not, says of being asked by the press about her personal life. The actress concludes that “the only solution I’ve come to when it comes to things like that—the health of my family or dating, really personal things—is not to talk about it.
On being a Type A personality that thinks they’re a Type B (I use this expression about myself quite often): “I micro-manage. I think I’m a Type A personality who’s trying to convince herself she’s Type B,” the actress says, admitting that she still lays out her clothes and sets her coffee-maker for the morning the night before. Stone, who confesses she was nervous for her bikini cover shot, saying, “I usually wear a one-piece,” jokes that her only vices are sugar, wine, and black-tar heroin. “That’s pretty much it, the heroin, the sugar, and the wine—nothing too crazy.”
On Tracy Anderson, diet guru to the stars and skinny trainer extraordinaire: “That diet, have you seen it?” Stone asks of the popular trainer to the stars Tracy Anderson’s recommended diet. “It’s like: Eat this diet, which is a palm-size piece of chicken and some beans, and work out two hours a day for the rest of your life.” The actress, who rock-climbs at Chelsea Piers in New York City, even admits that weight training and Pilates with Spider-Man co-star Andrew Garfield “brings out anger in me.”
On hitting her rock bottom: Before her breakout role in Superbad, Stone had dropped out of high school and moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of acting, enrolling in online classes and working part-time at a dog bakery. “I think three people called my specific cookies inedible to their dogs,” Stone said with a laugh. “I’m not a super-talented dog baker.” Stone, however, insists she has no regrets. “I did Superbad in what would’ve been my senior year,” she says. “I was playing a senior, and had I graduated I would’ve missed that opportunity, and had I missed that opportunity I wouldn’t be here right now.”
Stone tells Wolfe that she still remembers what she considers her hardest Hollywood moment, an audition for NBC’s Heroes. “I could hear that, in the other room, a girl had just gone in and they were saying, ‘You are our pick … On a scale of 1 to 10 you’re an 11,’” Stone recalls, before Hayden Panettiere—who ended up with the role of Claire Bennet—walked out of the room. “I went home and just had this meltdown,” Stone says, calling the experience “rock bottom.”
I’m so happy she wasn’t cast in Heroes. I can’t see her in TV, I think she’s made for films. All the movies she was in made her what she is today! Can’t wait to see her in Crazy, Stupid, Love.
This is so true, except cats and dogs take up a way bigger piece of pie on my friends list.

It’s funny because it’s true. I’m definitely the “Dear Inanimate Object” since this was my Facebook status today… hahahaha
Dear officer, what can hold 54 bags of heroin, 31 empty bags, 8 prescription pills, $51.22, and isn’t happy to see you? Answer: This girl’s vagina!
According to a police affidavit:
“Karen Mackaliunas was involved in a car crash in the city and was taken into custody by Scranton police at the request of Dunmore police for an alleged theft at a Dunmore hotel. While in the back seat of a police car, she “was moving around and putting her hands down her pants.”
Officers searched Mackaliunas and discovered three bags of heroin in her coat pocket and placed her under arrest for criminal charges in Scranton. While transporting her to headquarters, Officer Nancy Baumann allegedly saw her continue to move around in the back seat of the vehicle.
Mackaliunas admitted to police after several denials that she had more heroin in her possession, according to the affidavit. She allegedly “put her hands inside her underwear and instead of getting the drugs out, she was attempting to shove them inside” her body. She told police there was a pocket inside her underwear that she was trying to remove the drugs from.
She refused requests to put her hands behind her back and struggled with officers, the complaint states.”
Oh, lawd. I… I don’t even know what to say. That’s quite a feat, no? 54 bags of heroin in and of itself is quite an accomplishment, but when you add the empty baggies, cash, and pills I wouldn’t be surprised if we see her on America’s Got Talent and ultimately with her own show in Vegas.
And yes, that picture is actually her. I found it on Google. It just makes everything that much better for me.
