I'm with Grumpy Cat on this one - let's put the Christmas decorating on hold until after Thanksgiving, shall we? One holiday at a time, people!
I mean, even Black Friday is encroaching on Turkey Day, too. Some stores are opening on Thanksgiving night as early as 8pm, so people can spend even less time with their families and more time fighting the crowds to save a 10-20% on things they don't need and will probably forget about a week after Christmas. Retail workers, you have my sympathy! (CNN)

What I am NOT on board with is Bradley Cooper's inclusion on this list of the Top 10 Sexiest Man Alive Winners. That emu does nothing for me. (The Frisky)
What happens when a total Twilight newbie is assigned to watch "Breaking Dawn Part 2" with limited prior knowledge of the series? Confusion and hilarity ensues. Um, spoilers here. (Vulture)
The first thing I thought of when I read this article was, "She's like a real-life Kick-Ass!" But not being able to feel pain definitely hasn't been a blessing for this teenage girl or others like her. (NY Times)
What happens when you use capuchin monkeys to demonstrate how unequal pay makes workers feel?
