We’re not the type of people who need a reason to drink. If we’re breathing that’s reason enough. But for those who need more, here you go:
1. The Force Awakens: The latest Star Wars film hit the theaters on Thursday and no one will shut up about it. The only thing harder than realizing you’re in love with your sister is hiding from all of these Internet spoilers. May the force be with you.
2. Fantasy Playoffs: If you were lucky enough to make it into your league’s playoffs, you’ve got a big weekend ahead of you. Pour some of the good stuff and set a lineup your friends can’t mock you for even if you lose.
3. Amy and Tina: The girls are back on SNL this weekend to guest host and promote their new movie, Sisters. It promises to be filled with A+ comedy and maybe a Hillary impression or two. Tune in so you know which clips to send to your coworkers while you’re counting down the minutes to vacation on Monday morning.
4. Moustaches: Recent reports claim that men with moustaches outnumber all women in top US academic medical jobs. You know what that means, gents: it’s time to shave.
5. Adele Tickets: They went on sale Thursday and fans had more than a little trouble getting their hands on a pair. It’s just one more way the songstress has held us in her grasp only to watch us crumble into a puddle of tears.
