I’m an avid people-watcher and there’s no better place to see some interesting characters than on the subways in NYC, especially during one’s commute. Unfortunately, I tend to be pretty shy, so even when I see people who I’m sure would be awesome friends, I never strike up a conversation.

I’m guessing you weren’t surprised to hear that “21 Jump Street” cast member Channing Tatum was just named PEOPLE‘s Sexiest Man Alive. The actor himself, however, was stunned.

Listen. I’m overly optimistic about most things. Given that superhero/actor/Godsend Ryan Gosling has actually saved lives before, I still hold out for the day in which I trip on the sidewalk and he catches my fall with one arm. The other hand, of course, will be holding puppies. I know it’s going to happen sooner or later, so I’d like to honor the Canadian on his birthday with some amazing memes from the Feminist Ryan Gosling Tumblr page, which inspired a book because he’s just that incredible. Happy 32nd birthday, Gosling, and by all means, marry me.

Eight years later and people are still taking digs at Sex and the City.
In Saturday’s New York Times, Lena Dunham chatted up her new HBO show, Girls. On its surface, Girls is a Brooklynite foil to Sex and the City. Whereas Sex and the City chronicled the lives of professionally established 30- and 40-something women in Manhattan, leading glamorous lives and Trying To Figure It All Out™, Girls is about 20-something women leading unglamorous lives on shoestring budgets while Trying To Figure It All Out™.

For months, I have sought out a reason to write about comedian Rob Delaney. I think I’ve finally come up with one. Here, I will try to convince you, is a man who succeeds at championing women by telling penis jokes.

Welcome to Love Letters, our occasional column where we gush about our deepest lady-crushes, explain why they’re awesome and, generally, serve up more corn than the state fair. Have a woman you think deserves honoring? Nominate her here!
It’s tough to imagine anyone on the Food Network who’s inspired a cult quite like Ina Garten. Otherwise known as “The Barefoot Contessa,” she’s acquired a legion of adorers. She’s been called the next Martha Stewart. She’s been referenced on “30 Rock” on more than one occasion. She’s inspired countless essays detailing her greatness — including this fantastic one from The Hairpin today, which you should check out.
But what makes her so great? What makes her speak to so many different people?
