First off, a bit of housekeeping: Due to an unavoidable confluence of things, we here at GFY are in the process of migrating the site to a new host over the next few days. With any luck, the reader experience should remain unchanged. We might have some hiccups in the next couple of weeks as we make some further technological tweaks, but cross your fingers that all goes well, and we’ll definitely keep you all in the loop. Just wanted to let you know that we might have some time over this weekend where we can’t update so if, say, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry make out in front of us, I might not get to it in as timely as fashion as I would under normal circumstances.

This is the kind of headline that appeals to me. At Pajiba: The Terrible Truth Behind Sydney’s Murderous Scorned Women
