What’s On at Flavorpill: The Links That Made the Rounds in Our Office


Today at Flavorpill, we met a woman who is truly terrified by kittens. We watched an all-too-brief preview of the Ab Fab holiday special. We got an interesting look at Tom McCarthy’s computer desktop as part of a new series from The Guardian. We wanted to get our hands on one of these grown-up advent calendars for design dorks. We were surprised to find out how dramatic living in an IKEA catalog can be. We imagined what it would have been like to have Andre the Giant as a head warmer. We wished that we’d known Melissa McCarthy back when she wore turtlenecks as harem pants in high school. We hoped that the new street skiing trend never really catches on. We were surprisingly sad that we’ll never get to wear Hunger Games-inspired nail polish — even if the colors did have awful names like “Baker’s Son” and “Coal-Hearted.” We listened to Scarlett Johansson duet with Dean Martin on “I’ll Be Home For Christmas.” We couldn’t believe that the photos on this camera were still intact after spending a year floating around the ocean floor. We wanted to travel somewhere by train. And finally, we saw what Ghostbusters might have looked like as a Dr. Seuss book. Adorable!
