Bottoms Up!

Calling all winos: a new study suggests that drinking wine at bedtime can help you lose weight. Cheers to that folks! Sure there's that fine print that moderation is the key, blah, blah, blah, and that you must replace your after dinner snacks with a couple glasses of wine, rather than adding the libation to your established snacking routine. But, researchers at Harvard University, YES, HAHVAHD, found that women who drank two glasses of wine daily reduced their risk of obesity. Hey, if itsth good enoufth for folkth at Hahvardth then itsth good enoufth for thith little ol' red necth. Tho pour yourthelf some winth tonite before bedth and watch the poundth melths away.

Thank you Sara for validating my nightly wine consumption.

Return of the Valley Girl

So like this weekend Uncle Jeffy and I totally went to visit our son at college. On the second leg of our trip we like had the misfortune of sitting directly in front of two chicks on the airplane who totally were hell bent on bringing back the dreaded valley girls of the 80's. If you are of like a certain age, you totally know the rad lingo, you seriously know the gnarly accent, and you can fer sure like totally picture the excellent fashion of the 80's. I mean, O, My God, these girls did not like seriously stop talking the entire 75 minute flight. They were like going to be bridesmaids in a friend's wedding which was like seriously going to be so much fun, but this was like the tenth wedding they have been in in like the past two years, and like it is getting like seriously expensive. And O, My God, can you like totally even believe Jason is going to be there after what he even did to Amanda? Just shut up! I mean seriously.

Well folks, I learned a few traveling tips this weekend:

1.  Always pack a good set of earphones on your carry on luggage;
2.  Sometimes the outrageous price of in flight cocktails suddenly seems worth every penny; and
3.  The saying "always a bridesmaid but never a bride" like totally makes sense, 'cause who the fuck would marry that!

Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend

Welcome to another edition of Wacky Wednesday folks, and today's wacky story out of Bangkok might be a little hard to swallow. Apparently 39 year old Jiang Xulian, and a Chinese man were arrested at Bangkok's airport ready to rock and roll their way out of Thailand. Police had rock solid surveillance evidence of the couple stealing a 6 carat diamond at a jewelry fair.
Disclaimer: This is not Ms. Xulian. It's just some random Asian chick I found on Google Images holding a big ass diamond.
The couple initially denied involvement, but when an x-ray showed the diamond in the woman's intestine, she was between a rock and a hard place and she confessed. When laxatives failed to make her eat and run, she had to swallow her pride and submit to a colonoscopy so doctors could remove the object. Yeppers, that gives black diamond a whole new meaning! 
It's a tough pill to swallow, but if convicted the couple face up to three years in the slammer. Good news is that I hear if she uses her time wisely she can git 'er some rock hard abs and be a real diamond in the rough!
