  • When last we left the Hundred Acre Games, Winnie-the-Pooh had survived Christopher Robin’s deadly tournament, while Tigger, Roo and other stuffed animals fell in deadly combat. Now, a rebellion has started, all because of the actions of a silly old bear…

  • It’s not easy being a bridge troll to begin with, much less being one in the age of Google & Siri. How are you going to keep people off your bridge if they can just search-engine their way out of your best riddles? One troll may have found a solution.

  • Is binge-watching a TV or movie franchise really a good use of your time? Of course it is, especially if you follow our advice.

  • We love bookworms.

    They’re an interesting breed, though. The true bookworm is rarely out in public, preferring to remain somewhere warm and close to an endless supply of tea and new reading material. They can be quiet creatures, and if left alone, will usually either find a book or pull a book out of their bag, because they are always carrying one. They are on Snapchat less than Goodreads, and care about cover art more than beauty products. They are strange, but brilliant, living a thousand lives inside their heads, traveling the world from the safety of their comfy chair. It shows, too. If you are lucky enough to have a bookworm in your life, you will know that they have an encyclopedic knowledge of strange and varied subjects, thanks to a novel they read where a character was into that kind of thing. They will be open minded and careful thinkers, likely to sprinkle their speech with beautiful and intricate phrases. And oh, you have not lived until you have heard a bookworm’s flowery-but-brutal insults when someone interrupts them reading.

    Yes, we love bookworms, but it can be difficult to know just how to compliment these bookish people in a way that will truly convey just how special the are to us. Luckily, we’re here to help, with some perfect compliments for the bookish people you love.

  • A long time ago in a galaxy far far away…Edgar Allan Poe was born. On January 19, 1803, if we’re being precise. And even though he only lived to be 40 years old, he left behind a lifetime of Gothic short stories, poetry, and essays. Even longer ago, Poe Dameron was born to defeat the First Order. He’s a fierce X-Wing fighter with a soft spot for droids. Two very different men, both named Poe. To celebrate Edgar Allan Poe’s birthday and the release of The Last Jedi – no spoilers, we promise – we’ve concocted a quiz that would make both Poes proud.

  • Today, we raise a glass to the younger brothers in pop culture. The overlooked second children. The “aren’t you related to _____?” of the world. They’ve been compared to their siblings their entire lives and there’s nothing we can do about that. Except celebrate them.
