We’re kicking off early today for Good Friday, but will be back in full force on Monday morning! Happy Easter to you if you celebrate it, have a great Passover if you observe it, and here’s to an awesome weekend for us all! Come Monday, we’ll be running a contest to give away some advanced copies of our upcoming YA novel, MESSY, so make sure you come back bright and early (and if you need something to read this weekend, we will modestly — SO MODESTLY — suggest our first book, SPOILED). Until then:

– Kim France, the always awesome former EIC of Lucky, has launched a new blog, Girls of a Certain Age, and it rules. It’s full of all kinds of delightful pieces and you will enjoy it. (Girls of a Certain Age)

– You need to see this amazing video that morphs Lindsay Lohan’s face over the last 25 years. The music cues are particularly brilliant (so: has sound). Oh, LINDSAY. (YouTube)

– Cleanse your palate with this awesome time-lapse reconstruction of everything that happens in the courtyard in Rear Window. It really is cool. People are awesome. (The Atlantic)

– Our friends Pam Ribon and Dave Cole have launched their annual book drive, the Dewey Donation System. You LOVE books! Why don’t you give some to some children? (Dewey Donation System)

– Gawker takes a look at Chevy Chase’s history of being a jackass — not a surprise to those of us who read the SNL oral history several years ago, or that piece in EW about him that ran around the same time, but still an interesting read. It’s always disappointing when someone you really like onscreen turns out to be so rotten off it. (Gawker)

– Speaking of books and kids, let’s learn more about some of the most famous illustrators of storybooks. (Flavorwire))

– Everyone, including me, is on board with this Michelle Williams/Jason Segel relationship. (Lainey)

– This review of 50 Shades of Grey is one of the funniest things I’ve read on Forever Young Adult. It is not complimentary to the book.  It IS awesome. (Forever Young Adult)

– The Cut takes all of Bethenny Frankel’s Skinnygirl products for a whirl.  That body-shaper is intense! (The Cut)

District 12 is for sale! Only 1.4 million! (Time)

– Oh GOD. Now J Lo Hewitt is trying to hook up with Adam Levine. HONEY PLEASE BE SINGLE FOR AWHILE. Maybe date a civilian? I have moved to a place where I just want to befriend her. She clearly DOES need a Get-a-Grip friend. (Celebitchy)

– NOW Taco Bell is coming out with a taco that has a COOL RANCH DORITO SHELL THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE (I mean, obviously the current nacho one is great, but Cool Ranch is my jam). (Buzzfeed)
