And, when I get there, I always say to myself, “What the heck was I thinking?” Listen: Samuel L.

The thirty-two-page Go the Fuck to Sleep was picked up by a small Brooklyn publishing house, and even reached number one on Amazon's bestseller list ahead of memoirs by Tina Fey and Steven Tyler, well before its official publication date, which was yesterday. So this children's book for adults is now a full-blown phenomenon, and has weathered a little controversy, as New Zealand Christian group Family First has lobbied New Zealand's booksellers not to sell the book. This all makes for an amusing story, but it gets better.

To start, I chose a dark base.

Scarves in Paris Fortunately, little Gigi had a mentor who showed her how to tie her sinfully lightweight cashmere scarves when she was a four-year-old.
