Lunch is the perfect opportunity to get out and walk around New York City with my coworkers—even we just pick up food within a 3 block radius to bring back to our desks so we can continue finding random stuff on the Internet working. So every day, I’ll be sharing what I had for lunch along with links to my daily lunch break distractions.

Lance Armstrong’s interview with Oprah Winfrey isn’t set to air until Thursday, but “a person familiar with the interview” (a.k.a. some Oprah staff member looking for a quick buck) disclosed that the cyclist officially confessed to using performance-enhancing drugs in the mid-90s after USADA evidence proving this was released in October.

Jodie Foster’s kind-of-sort-of coming out during her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday sparked a ton of reactions from celebrities, fans and gay rights activists alike.

Demanding or interpreting a concrete label from anyone–even if they are/have been involved in a same-sex relationship–is simply ridiculous. Jodie, I salute you.

The 10 Major Differences Between New York and L.A. (via Thought Catalog)
I once lived/now work in New York and know quite a few people from the Los Angeles area. Based on that, I can solidly say that this list is accurate. This about sums it up: “Los Angeles is the land of delusions. You can live your life thinking you’re the best invention since sliced bread and no one will question your self-importance. New York is different though. Living here basically entails being humiliated on a daily basis.”
