Let’s play “Who does January Jones’ baby resemble?”

@popsugar ran new pics of the son of January Jones and mystery daddy.

Ashton Kutcher?

Jason Sudeikis?

Matthew Vaughn? (aka Claudia Schiffer’s husband who is directed X-Men)

Battle of the Bearded Beanies

Update: Beard product proliferation on Etsy, complete.

In December, I read about in InStyle’s gift guide. I knew I was too late for Christmas but thought one of the kid-sized hats would make a terrific gift for a kiddo I know who is experiencing his first cold winter. I’ll be giving him one of these soon:

Via BurlyBeardCo sent a newsletter recently touting Beardo as the “only bearded beanie.” It’s not true (and I prefer the BurlyBeard style), but as the saying goes, your mileage may vary.

Other options:

I hope Kristen Stewart’s assistant is enjoying Rumspringa

Doesn’t he look like an Amish man called, say, Mose?

Actually, that sort of beard is worn by married Amish men so Rumspringa isn’t the answer. More like a lost bet. Thanks for the knowledge NatGeo.








I went to Los Angeles

I stayed at an awesome hotel.

I saw Bradley Cooper and Chord Overstreet at SoHo House. Not together. They’d be cute together though, eh? I kid, I kid.

I ate at my favorite casual spot in LA, Loteria Grill. Yep, I had a michelada. OK, two. Gracias to my RL friend @beaker4369 (below on right) for taking me there a few LA trips ago.

Mostly I just worked really. I didn’t get to set foot on the beach even once – my only view of the ocean was as the plane took off for home.

NYC bathrooms. Focus on Boqueria

You don’t need me to describe New York City’s beloved attractions. Even if you have never visited New York City, you have surely seen the Statue of Liberty, Central Park and others depicted on TV or in film, or perhaps on the internet.

But what about real life in the Big Apple? Do you wonder about that?

I’m talking about bathrooms, people. And I find them hilarious (sometimes). Sometimes they’re appalling. Often they’re hard to find unless you’re willing to stand in line at Starbucks.

But worse, NYC bathrooms are often down a long, narrow, steep flight of stairs. Or so tiny you can barely turn yourself around, like on a Greyhound bus. Or both. This can even be true in nice restaurants, which is probably when I find the situation most interesting.

Example 1: Boqueria’s SoHo location (pictured above and below)

I included my hand in the second picture to give you a sense of scale.

Boqueria has two individual restrooms from what I can tell. Both are carved out of an area behind the kitchen. Can you imagine the process of constructing that little nook where the toilet resides?
