Adulting is hard and I want my mom’s cooking back.

2.  Love the smell, hate the taste.

I have student loans to pay off and rent to pay, so I can’t afford to find myself a Mexican mom who can make my apartment smell like Mexican food. Do they make menudo-scented candles? If not, someone should get on that,

3. A message to lurkers.

We all need a reminder to drink to our haters every once in a while – they’re just jealous, honey. I think we’re all a little guilty of jealous lurking at some point though. Let’s all try to spread love to each other instead.

4. We all know this type.

Yep, anyone with Chucks and a piercing is definitely a “rocker”.

5.  Uber offers the perfect opportunity to take on a new identity.

Let’s be real though, we’re all cosplaying as something, be it a straight boy, Wonderwoman, or someone who actually has their shit together.

6. If your mother doesn’t nag at you when you come home, something’s wrong.

“You didn’t shave your beard? Pluck your eyebrows. I thought you were losing weight. When did you last take a shower? Have you been eating?” When she picks at your appearance, that’s how you know she loves you.

7. Lady Gaga’s level of Catholicism is every abuela’s wet dream.

Sorry, abuela. I’m too hungover to go to mass this morning.

8. No matter how many times I say no, I still want to be invited.

You know that feeling when you see your friends going out on social media and you’re mad that they didn’t invite you but you said no the last 16 times? Yeah, me too. I’m just going to sit here and watch reruns of The Office for the 23rd time now and hope that I’ll be invited next time.

9.  When you’re too fabulous to be on time.

Your boss can’t blame you for being late. Your habitual lateness has been passed down through several generations of strong, independent women who won’t let time define them. And you needed a coffee.

10. When you finally look good in a photo but you don’t want your dad’s 8th cousin’s brother to be in the picture.

I don’t blame her. It’s hard to look good in photos unless it’s your 500th selfie taken in an hour. When you finally get a good one, you have to share it – but first, you need to crop out that unidentifiable relative who you haven’t seen in 6 years.

11. We are all this dog.

I’m going places, I swear. I just need to finish every show on Netflix and eat everything in sight.

12. She’s not wrong.

You’re still special, girl. Don’t let Becky’s Juvederm make you think you aren’t great. (And your lips will never deflate.)

13. For real though.

Did you think the bible was completed all this time? Oh, no, no, no. After thousands of years of just near perfection, the New Testament was completed on November 10, 2014, with the release of Taylor Swift’s Blank Space. The world has never been the same since.

14. Have you ever tried to host Thanksgiving? Don’t.

You don’t know stress and anxiety until you try to cook a decent meal for 25 Latinos. You just don’t. And if you have, you deserve official sainthood.

15. If your mom is your #1 girl, you’re lucky.

Nothing beats the unconditional love of a Latina mother or any mother for that matter. Friends come and go, and some might stay, but your mom has been there since the beginning.  Her love and support will never go away (even if it’s tough love).

16. You know the feeling.

We just barely made it through Thanksgiving, but we’re going to need a lot more tequila to get through the rest of the holiday season.

17. Nothing beats authentic Mexican food.

We’re not talking about that overpriced hipster stuff that costs $15 for 3 bites of food. One $10 order of the real deal can feed a family of nine for weeks.

18. The nerve of some people.

No, I did not authorize this purchase of $277 at Sephora. This eyeliner is all natural. How dare my bank take my money? I’m just trying to look good.

19. I think we all can relate to this.

You get out of the shower, dry off, and make the mistake of sitting in bed with just your towel on. And it’s so, so comfortable. You take out your phone to check Twitter and suddenly you’re watching a full-on documentary on YouTube. An hour has now passed and you’re late and your hair is still wet, and out go your hopes and dreams of ever being a functioning member of society.

20. Going through 6 days of torture, all for nothing.

That size chart looked enticing, but you decided to just wing it and hope you’re still the size you were last summer. Big mistake.

21. And that was the moment they realized they made a mistake.

People love to talk as much shit in Spanish all they want, but as soon as they realize people can understand them, they’re surprised. Be careful what you say – you never know who’s listening.

An Old Video Of To TV Hosts Debating Whether The Moon Is A Planet Or A Star Has Twitter Twisted

An Old Video Of To TV Hosts Debating Whether The Moon Is A Planet Or A Star Has Twitter Twisted

To be a star or a planet? That is the question.

Or at least, it was The Question that made heads roll a few years ago and has begun to do again thanks to a revival of an old video.

Six years ago, in 2015 a QVC segment went viral after designer Isaac Mizrahi and his co-host Shawn Killinger got into a heated debate about whether the moon was a star or a planet. Little did they know that the moon, well, it’s actually just a moon.

Now, six years later, the old segment is making waves again.

Mizrahi and Killinger started the strange debate in a clip that is surfacing again on Twitter.

The clip starts out with Killinger holding up a shirt made of green, white, and blue colors before declaring, “This is what we call emerald, but really it’s more of a seafoam.” She then goes onto point out that “it almost kinda looks like what the earth looks like when you’re a bazillion miles away from the planet moon.”

Then in the familiar way that we’ve all done after realizing we might have made a mistake, Shawn mutters the phrase again, contemplating. “The planet moon.”

Not picking up on her hesitations, Isaac agrees “The planet moon.” Copping to her mistake, Shawn asks “Isn’t the moon a star?”

“The moon is a planet, darling,” Isaac replies before pulling his co-host into a sixty-two-second-long debate in which Isaac insists the moon is a planet. “The moon is such a planet I can’t even stand it,” he even declares at one point. In reaction, Shawn attempts to support her argument by going through the planets in our solar system. Unfortunately, she doesn’t get very far and names Earth, Uranus, Saturn, and “the one with the rings.”

This is when Shawn then comes to the conclusion that the Sun is a star too but Isaac quickly replies that “We don’t know what the sun is” meaning that “us” as in the whole world doesn’t know.

The whole thing is only resolved once someone off-camera confirms what most of us all already know, the moon is not a star, a planet, but a natural satellite.

Much to Shawn and Isaac’s chagrin of course.

“A natural satellite? What’s that mean? I don’t like that at all,” Shawn asks suspiciously. “A natural satellite,” Isaac replies, adding. “But things live on it. That means it’s a planet.”

Fortunately, the hosts move on with the show to sell their shirts, but fans on Twitter have yet to forget.

Someone even animated the entire sequence.

Ted Cruz and Seth Rogen Are Currently In the Twitter Feud to End All Twitter Feuds

Ted Cruz and Seth Rogen Are Currently In the Twitter Feud to End All Twitter Feuds

You may be familiar with the actor Seth Rogen, the burly comedian who has starred in hit films like “Knocked Up” and “Neighbors”. Well, it appears that Rogen is about the only person in the world who is able to get under Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s skin.

Since last Wednesday, the two Canadians have been embattled in an expletive-filled, eyebrow-raising Twitter feud.

It all started when Ted Cruz tweeted a criticism of the brand new Biden administration, saying because President Biden rejoined the Paris Climate Agreement, he’s “more interested in the views of the citizens of Paris than in the jobs of the citizens of Pittsburgh”.

To which Seth Rogen eloquently responded: “F–k off you fascist.”

Normally, bigtime lawmakers ignore the public criticisms of celebrities, but this time, Senator Cruz couldn’t help but take the bait. He screenshotted Rogen’s response and commented about it on his Twitter account.

“Charming, civil, educated response,” Sen. Cruz said. “If you’re a rich, angry Hollywood celebrity, today’s Dems are the party for you. If you’re blue-collar, if you’re a union member, if you work in energy or manufacturing…not so much.”

At this point, Rogen took the time to respond: “If you’re a white supremacist fascist who doesn’t find it offensive when someone calls your wife ugly, Ted Cruz is the exact motherfucker for you.” He then added later: “Also I’m in four unions.”

And the debacle just got more intense from there. Cruz responded by calling Rogen a “moron” and saying that the Democratic party believes in the government power to “shut your business, to oppress your faith & to censor your speech.” And added: “Anyone who disagrees, they try to cancel.”

The plot got even thicker, with Rogen doubling down on his claims, this time calling Sen. Cruz a “fascist piece of s–t” with the topper: “Your lies got people killed. You have blood on your hands.”

And in the most bizarre turn of events, the so-called feud (a label that Rogen takes exception to) took an odd detour when the two men began to argue about…Disney’s “Fantasia”?

In an unrelated tweet, Cruz told his Twitter followers that the first film he saw in theatres was “Fantasia”, to which Rogen responded: “Everyone who made that film would hate you.” (Okay, you had to have laughed a little bit, right??)

Ever the one to get the last word in (and apparently having nothing better to do than argue with an actor on the internet?), Sen. Cruz tweeted out: “They’re all dead. So I think we’re good. And Walt Disney was a Republican. Even though you behave online like a Marxist with Tourette’s (screaming “F U! F U!” is really, really clever), your movies are typically pretty funny. I’m sure you hate that I enjoy them.”

To which Rogen revealed that he actually does, indeed, have a mild form of Tourette’s syndrome that just causes twitching, not swearing (plot twist?)

He also chastised Cruz for making light of the syndrome that afflicts many people–including people in Rogen’s family.

And of course, a public Twitter spat wouldn’t be a public Twitter spat without other bloodthirsty spectators jumping into the fray.

Like failed Pennsylvania congressional candidate Dean Browning, who tried to burn Rogen by asking why a “Canadian is so deeply obsessed with American men like @TedCruz”. The “obvious explanation” being that “#SethRogenLovesTedCruz”. Because homophobic jokes are so clever.

Seth Rogen took this as the perfect opportunity to educate Mr. Browning on the little-known birthplace of Senator Cruz. He tweeted: “Ted Cruz is Canadian you stupid f–k.” Well said.

To read the entire, sprawling Twitter exchange, head over to Seth Rogen’s Twitter account. You won’t be disappointed.
