BREAKING: Harry Potter & the Cursed Child is Being Published in Book Form!

By ElodieFebruary 10, 2016
It finally happened, Sparklers. Since last we spoke, I dropped enough hints, sent enough tweets @jkrowling, and ritually sacrificed enough mere mortals to the wizarding gods to secure us the honor of experiencing JK Rowling’s new two-part play. We may never know which of those ... More  →

By ElodieFebruary 9, 2016
First of all, if you haven't yet seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens, what's wrong with you? What, you're busy? Too busy to become a better you? Too busy to let it change your life? I saw it and then immediately saw it again, and I cried in all the same places, but that's b More  →

Would You Rather... (Featuring THE Question of Our Childhoods)

By ElodieFebruary 4, 2016
Last week I asked if you guys would rather give up eating or sleeping. Personally, I'd get rid of sleeping in a heartbeat; it's a total waste of time, and I need that time for things like eating chicken nuggets. Besides, sleeping's not just sleeping. It's trying to fall More  →

BREAKING: Violet & Klaus Have Been Cast for the Upcoming Netflix Adaptation of A Series of Unfortunate Events!

By ElodieFebruary 1, 2016
Now, contrary to the expression my face does whenever I talk about it, I didn’t HATE the Series of Unfortunate Events movie. I just feel a little bit like Paramount and DreamWorks Pictures owe me money for whatever happened with that. I mean, it was a promising ... More  →

Would You Rather... (Featuring a Deal with the Devil)

By ElodieJanuary 29, 2016
Whenever I'm in a group of people that's trying to pick a place to eat, I'm always that one human nightmare of passive indecision who's "good with anything." I know. I hate me, too. But it's only because it's somewhere in the neighborhood of 100% easier to NOT make decisio More  →

How to Handle Humiliation Like a CHAMP

By ElodieJanuary 27, 2016
If you’re anything like me, you probably handle humiliation by fleeing the scene, crawling into bed under the cover of darkness, and not showing your face in public for the next three to five years. And that’s normal! Well, okay, not normal, but you’re hardly ... More  →

Real Talk: I Majored in English & Didn't End Up Living In a Cardboard Box on the Side of the Road

By ElodieJanuary 22, 2016
English majors. They're the scarf-wearing dredges of our society. When people find out that you're an English major, they typically respond in one of three ways: "What are you even going to do with that?" "You're paying $30,000 a year to sit around and read poetry?" "So I ... More  →

About the Author
Elodie

In real life, she goes by the name Courtney Gorter. This is a closely guarded secret, and you're the only one who knows about it, so be cool. She's a writer, a bad influence, and a connoisseur of fine chicken nuggets. She realizes none of these things will help her survive a zombie apocalypse, and she’s made her peace with that. You can follow her on tumblr or Twitter if you want, but it's just going to be a lot of complaining.
