If someone doesn't make a freakin' amazing biopic about the life of Eartha Kitt, and soon, I will be deeply annoyed and disappointed.

You just don't get more badass than Eartha. Her life story has it all -- drama, heartbreak, Harlem, Paris. Dancing, singing, Batman, Orson Welles. For god's sake, the woman made Lady Bird Johnson cry at a White House luncheon. (The first lady asked Kitt what she thought about the Vietnam War, and Kitt said, "You send the best of this country off to be shot and maimed. No wonder the kids rebel and take pot." TALK ABOUT TELLING TRUTH TO POWER, HELLO AWESOME.) 

She was blacklisted in the States for years (had her phones tapped and her house bugged and everything -- overreact much, LBJ?) and then returned triumphant after years of success in Europe, and then continued to be consistently badass, talented, and generally fabulous until her death of colon cancer in 2008.

Think of the music. Of the purring. Of the badassedness. And if no one else writes it, dammit, I will.

Chimamanda Adichie, I've never heard of you before, but you are officially my new favorite person. This is amazing.

Best thing about today's graduation ceremony?

FUNNY NEW SQUARE HAT.

(Also, finally having the diploma in my hand doesn't suck.)

There are so many brilliant vids out there supporting the WGA, but this is undoubtedly my favorite. See if you can spot one Mr. Ted Mosby and his 'I haven't worked in months' lumberjack beard. I heart him.

Contains strong language and much hilarity.

Also:

This makes me so ridiculously, unbelievably happy that I really should be concerned.

Satan hates bears.

(Dear Reaper - My sincerest apologies for ever doubting you. Your insanity is a beauteous thing to behold.)
