What Else?

Carrie Underwood broke her wrist after falling at home in November. And it turns out that she also needed almost 50 stitches in her face. Which is why she’s prepping her fans that she might look different the next time they see her. The other day I bailed on some ice on the sidewalk. The car door was open and I almost cornered my face and in the moments afterwards, my vanity took over. So I have no hate for Carrie here, only sympathy. I’d be mortgaging everything I own and flying to Asia to get it worked on if that were me. (Seriously have you seen the quality of plastic surgery in Asia?) (Dlisted) 

UK tabloids are reporting that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle flew coach to Nice and then took a helicopter to Monaco for New Year’s. I’m having a hard time believing this story. Because I cannot picture Prince Harry and Meghan Markle hanging out at the casino. Ben Affleck? Sure. Prince Harry? Sitting at a blackjack table? With hundreds of Euro cheese millionaires milling about? Has that ever been his thing? Even when he went to Vegas it was private room parties and naked billiards which, we’re supposed to be past that now, so are we sure it was Monaco? (Cele|bitchy) 

One of the best pop culture conversations of 2017 was the Best Chris debate. Evans, Hemsworth, Pine, or Pratt? It was a ferocious battle, especially after Wonder Woman. Towards the end of the year though, after Thor: Ragnarok impressed so many people, Hemsworth may have edged Pine? Or is it Evans’s long hair in the Avengers 3 trailer that put him back on top? It’s a new year. And Ryan Reynolds wants us to stop fighting about it. All Chrises win. (Pop Sugar) 

Pajiba’s list of the most highly anticipated movies of 2018 includes the obvious Black Panther! Crazy Rich Asians! Oceans 8! – and also a photo of Lin-Manuel Miranda standing beside a lamppost that I’ve never seen before and I’m now better for it. (Pajiba) 

We played Trivial Pursuit (the 2000s edition!) on New Year’s Eve. Duana and Jacek were paired as a team. In case you weren’t aware, Duana is extremely competitive and one of those know-it-alls that blurts out the answer before the entire question is even read. So she totally carried him. But they lost. To me and Paolo! Even though they were smoking the rest of us but they got stuck on the final question for several rounds. During the fight for second place, a controversial game question came up that almost led to the table being flipped over: the answer Duana and Jacek provided was “bees”. The answer on the card was “honey bees”. I was the one doing the reading and, in my position as court clerk, passed the card to Paolo, our Chief Justice, to make the determination. His judgment: incorrect. “Honey” was an important part of the answer. Which is sort of what happened on Jeopardy. (TMZ) 

Have you seen The Last Jedi yet? It’s 2018! I’m sorry! If you haven’t seen it, I can’t prevent you from spoilers anymore. Remember when Rey and Ren are “Force-Timing” (I think Jen Yamato came up with this and it’s brilliant but if I’m crediting the wrong person, let me know) and he has his shirt off? Well John Mayer turned it into an internet challenge. (Mashable)
