It’s okay. It’s okay. No matter what, it’s still okay.

‪@tyrabanks: So U know when there’s nothing on TV so U flip thru the channels over & over then end up U leaving it on as background noise while U tweet!
Twitter has given new life to the fine art of channel surfing.

‪@MollieinSeattle: And it’s March, when and how did that happen?
On one hand, we’re closer to spring. On the other – actually, in this case, there is no other hand.

‪@hootsuite: Social media has become a game-changer for the fashion industry: ‪http://ow.ly/u7kiN
We prefer to think of it as fashion changing the technology game.

‪@YouDonKnowMe: I gotta get ready for my hike tomorrow so I’m eating chocolate trail mix right now.
It’s like carb loading, except… not.

‪@HuffingtonPost: “Dancing With The Stars” cast announced… and there’s a brand new twist this time ‪http://huff.to/1hJ363X ‪#DWTS
Is the big twist that Winnie Cooper teams up with Lando Calrissian? It’s like our 80s dreams come true.

‪@OMGFacts: The T-shirt was invented in 1904 and marketed to bachelors who couldn’t sew or replace buttons.
This makes the most sense of anything we’ve read all week.

‪@NYCeditor: Bag is so full and so heavy. Not even sure my wallet is in it. ‪@eholmeswsj, I might need an intervention!
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.

‪@HotelFoxtrot: Thanks to ‪@Jen_Royle‘s Instagram I want chicken broccoli & ziti, quesadillas, & chicken Marsala for breakfast.
That’s the breakfast-of-champions gold-medal winner right there.

‪@TIME: Why you shouldn’t have alcohol around if you’re on a diet ‪http://ti.me/1gycdST
Our bar-cart investment trumps your high-calorie argument.

‪@postsecret: It still feels weird for me at airports, after security, putting my belt back on as business men, women and families are walking by.
For us, the strangest part is being barefoot in a public place not covered by sand.

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.

@scalzi: Reading a bunch of depressing articles first thing in the morning probably wasn’t the right way to start the day.
Well, you came to the right place. Let’s fix that.

@Mediabistro: Twitter’s Grammy Traffic Is Flat, And So Are the Grammys’ TV Ratings http://on.recode.net/1jEcRmK  (via @Recode)
Maybe it’s because some of us watched Sean & Catherine’s wedding instead. #TheBachelor #oops

‪@NYCeditor: Boot report: Mostly clear, but definitely icy. Yes to boots.
We agree. We’ll continue to agree until March, at the earliest.

This would just make us want more chocolate. Purpose, consider yourself defeated.

‪@LitAgentMarini: Hate leaving messages for people! I always sound RIDICULOUS cause I forget what I want to say!
The possibility of having to leave a voicemail is precisely why we text first.
