Good advice. We hear stocking your drawers with yoga pants helps, too.

‪@RL_Stine: There have been many developers of the spork. Some tried to market it as a foon. But the name never caught on. #SporkFacts
We pity the foon.

‪@HuffingtonPost: Um, this is really weird, Kim Kardashian. Really weird indeed. ‪http://huff.to/1hVjI9K

Coming Out of the Elevator: Anonymous Condé Nast Tweeter Revealed

Five days. Thirty-six tweets. Seventy-six thousand followers. That was the lifespan of @CondeElevator, a Twitter account formed for the sole purpose of reporting ludicrous, albeit hilarious, banter from inside the elevator at Condé Nast headquarters in New York. (See excerpts below.) The creator? One of their own – former GQ editor Lauren Bans, who revealed her identity in a spontaneous tweet last month. In an interview with GQ, Bans said, ”I came home real drunk last night, read an article about the Goldman Sachs Elevator guy in the New York Times, and then impulsively tweeted my ‘coming out.’”

Let me fill you in: The day Bans sent her signing-off tweet to @CondeElevator for fear of jeopardizing her job, the anonymous @GSElevator account popped up, seemingly tweeting the same sort of gossip – only from the elevators at Goldman Sachs. Two and a half years later, @GSElevator comes out as finance expert John LeFevre, admits he was inspired by @CondeElevator, and signs a six figure book deal with Touchstone.

Intervention? Pointless. Just get yourself a chiropractor.

‪@GeorgeTakei: Those who forget the past are doomed to look pretty stupid later.
In the case of JNCO jeans and Hypercolor tees, yes. Crop tops and plaid, not so much.

Dress Disaster: Oscar Gowns Go Missing at the Airport

Imagine this: You’ve sifted through hundreds of dresses for an oh-so-special occasion and finally found the perfect one. And then… it gets lost at the airport. Pretty rough, right? Now imagine you’re the one responsible for losing said dress, and it’s for – wait for it – an actress attending the Academy Awards. Well, this horror movie–like plotline actually happened to Donna Karan PR rep Aliza Licht yesterday. And get ready to grab some popcorn, because she chronicled the whole ordeal live on Twitter.

Screen Shot 2014-02-25 at 5.04.50 PM

Lucky for her (warning: spoiler alert ahead), the dresses were found. I have to admit, though, as I read each of her tweets, I became less and less nervous for Aliza. And no, it wasn’t because I thought the dresses would soon be found. It was because the girl is straight-up hilarious in the face of a job-threatening situation. Worst-case scenario, the dresses were lost forever, and she would have been fired. But on the bright side? She would have wound up with a pretty good screenplay on her hands and a great Candy Crush score. Sounds like a solid ending to me.

Read the full saga on ELLE.com.
