Pippa Plays Ping-Pong With Andre + Katy Perry's Little Brother Releases Music Video = Today's Eight Items or Less

11514512-large.jpg1. Love this tidbit from D.T. Max's forthcoming biography of David Foster Wallace about words his mom invented: "If there was no word for a thing, Sally Wallace would invent it: 'greebles' meant little bits of lint, especially those that feet brought into bed; 'twanger' was the word for something whose name you didn't know or couldn't remember. She loved the word 'fantods,' meaning a feeling of deep fear or repulsion, and talked of 'the howling fantods,' this fear intensified. These words, like much of his childhood, would wind up in Wallace's work." [via Brain Pickings]
