So, next week is going to be weird for those of us in the US, since we’re going to be taking off Wednesday in honor of the 4th of July holiday. Can I just say that having the 4th fall on a Wednesday is THE WORST? Can’t we agree as a nation that on years when the 4th is a Wednesday, we celebrate Independence on the 5th? WILL NO ONE THINK OF THE LONG WEEKEND? And speaking of the weekend, on Sunday, GFY TURNS EIGHT. I can’t believe it. THANK YOU ALL so much for being so supportive of everything we do, for reading, for being an awesome community, for buying our books (the new one, MESSY, is out now; SPOILED is freshly in paperback!) and coming out to meet us and Tweeting us and just being the best readership ever. We love you all. Enjoy the following:

– KATIE HOLMES TOM CRUISE DIVORCE. (Scroll down for our retrospective on their relationship.) Interestingly, Lainey reports she’s the one who filed AND she’s gone back to her old, original publicist, AND no one can find him right now. (Lainey)

– Let’s look at these pictures of Ryan Lochte and Phelpsy in the pool. I love the Olympics. Also, I was thinking last night: Phelps has totally grown into his face. I always thought he was cute but he’s lost the awkwardness.  (Lainey Gossip)

– Speaking of the Olympics, this piece about the track and field trials is SO SO SO GOOD. (Grantland)

– Do YOU have super-human magical cone vision? Some women do. I decided I’m one of them (just because I want to be; there is no proof of this at all). (Discover)

– Lena Dunham’s piece about Nora Ephron in The New Yorker is really lovely. (The New Yorker)

– You NEED to see Nick Offerman reading tweets from young female celebrities. I think I have a crush on Nick Offerman. (Team Coco)

– Elle did the legwork for you and found an awesome boutique in every state in the nation. (Elle)

– You are going to love these Edwardian street styles. (The Retronaut)

Have you been watching The Lizzie Bennet Diairies? It’s a modern retelling of P&P, and it’s very charming. (YouTube)

– And I love this Tumblr: Football (soccer) Minus Balls. (Football Minus Balls)

– I extra love this flowchart, detailing what to read this summer instead of 50 Shades of Grey. (UpWorthy)

– This Amber Heard/Johnny Depp relationship sure is helping her get some press coverage. I’m not saying it’s not legit. But I am saying that her PR people must be pretty excited. (Celebitchy)

People in Poland made the world’s biggest lasagna — in honor of the Italian soccer team — but….it has carrots and peas on top and no cheese, which to me means it might not TECHNICALLY be lasagna? Still, good on ya, Poland. (Time)

– And KFC in the Philippines is making a chicken sandwich with melted cheese on the TOP of the BUN. ???? Fine. I’d try it. (The Consumerist)

– You will like these letters from famous writers to little kids. (Flavorwire)
