Last night’s Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler — who should really be hosing eveything, ever — were pretty damn entertaining considering I forgot to pick up booze before I became chained to my laptop for the evening. They were also decidedly more political than usual, with a number of winners giving rousing speeches about issues like racis, sexism, violence against women and trans rights, while Tina and Amy were on fire, slaying some seriously on point — and feminist — jokes about George Clooney and Bill Cosby.

Walking, talking, child-murdering human garbage heap George Zimmerman was arrested (again!) late last night in Lake Mary, Florida, for aggravated assault in a domestic violence case.

The judge ordered him to surrender all of his firearms and to not have any contact with the victim or travel to Volusia County, where she lives, before releasing him on a $5000 bond.Zimmerman, of course, is the self-appointed “neighborhood watch” patrolman who shot and killed unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012, a crime for which he was acquitted in 2013. Since then, Zimmerman has been in trouble with the law multiple times, including for domestic violence and brandishing a firearm. He’s a danger to society and should have been locked up long ago.

I didn’t tell her about the pot-smoking because I didn’t want a lecture, but I was stunned when she actually advised me to drink less grapefruit juice because it’s causing some minor erosion in, like, the back of my throat or something?
“Uh, I live for grapefruit juice,” I told her. “I drink it by the quart. You can’t take that away from me, I refuse!!!” Well, technically I demurred and was like, “Okay doc, whatever you say,” but with my fingers crossed behind my back. Keep reading »
