An understated timepiece in silver or gold is a classic accessory, sure, but it’s also a bit predictable. Why wear a regular watch–on a regular watchband–when you could throw on a gorgeous bracelet that just happens to tell time too? We’ve rounded up some of the most creative handmade watches Etsy sellers have to offer. Read on if you’d like to add a bit of pizazz to your punctuality…
A Washington, DC woman got caught with her pants down when the toilet she was using exploded suddenly. Apparently, a mechanical failure of epic proportions was triggered by her flush. She was rushed to the hospital with serious, not non-life threatening injuries. Well, this doesn’t give me any sort of anxiety about flushing. At. All. Let this story be a lesson to us all: flush with caution. Scary stuff can happen anywhere, even on the crapper. Click through to see some of the craziest toilet tales of all time. [Newslite]

On Wednesday, we mourned the passing of Heidi the cross-eyed possum, a creature so ugly she actually swung all around the spectrum to being cute again. We suspected Heidi was not the only critter in the animal kingdom with such charms. Nature’s bounty may be filled with golden retriever puppies and newborn kittens, but it’s also filled with two-snouted pigs and spineless hedgehogs.
Here are 10 critters only a mother … or a zookeeper … could love:

Holly Madison is starring in “Peepshow,” and fully recognizes that her breasts are her “primary money makers” right now. That’s why she has taken out an insurance policy to the tune of $1 million with insurance company Lloyd’s of London to protect them. “I’ve heard about people getting body parts insured and I thought, why not?, because if anything happened to my boobs, I’d be out for a few months and I’d probably be out a million dollars,” she said. “I thought I’d cover my assets.” [People]
After the jump, some other celebs with very valuable body parts.
Celebrity miscreants like Charlie Sheen get the lion’s share of the limelight. No one remembers the scandals of the little people, dammit! And yes, I mean literally, the little people. Dwarfism is well-represented enough in Hollywood that even they have their embarrassing scandals.
Let’s take a gander at Hollywood’s biggest little people scandals!
Megan Fox is cleaning up her image. Literally. This summer she announced her decision to get the Marilyn Monroe tattoo removed from her forearm because she no longer wished to attract negative attention into her life. The latest rumor is that she plans to point the laser at two more of her tats. “Marilyn is almost gone and [Megan] has identified two other tattoos to go. She doesn’t regret having her tattoos but having grown up a lot in the last few months, she no longer identifies with certain things that inspired her when she was a teenager,” said an unidentified friend. Hmm. Sounds reliable. I wonder if Megan stopped believing in gilded butterflies? I guess we will just have to wait and see if any more of her ink disappears. [ONTD]
Megan is not the only celeb to regret going under the (ink) gun. Keep on clicking to see other celebs who’ve had tats 86′d.
Remember when, shortly after his split from Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt appeared on the cover of W magazine, playing family man in a photoshoot with rumored lover Angelina Jolie? And Jennifer was all, “Homie is missing a sensitivity chip?” Well, many thought Brad’s sensitively was lacking when he implied to Parade earlier this month that his life with Jen wasn’t an “interesting” one. He quickly went into spin mode, saying his words were taken out of context, but Parade insiders have said that no such twisting of words occurred and that his quote accurately reflects how he feels — that his marriage to Jennifer was a dull one. So when this mini photoshoot featuring Jen and her new boyfriend Justin Theroux appeared on photographer Terry Richardson’s blog yesterday, I couldn’t help but wonder if this wasn’t just a portrait of two kids in love — but also a bit of an “eff you” to Brad and his mouthing off. Jen looks pretty damn happy while Justin … well, he hardly looks bored. I can’t help it — I like these two together! [Terry's Diary]
Kelly Clarkson is a smartie when it comes to matters of the heart. I mean, she did sing “Since U Been Gone.” But now she has more wisdom to pass on to us. “[Dating is] like an ‘American Idol‘ audition,” she said in a recent interview. “The worst ones are the most confident … And the same thing goes for my dating life. The worst guys are the most confident with me.” Everyone loves an unexpected analogy, right? Kelly’s words have inspired me to round up other celebrities who’ve made great analogies about love, dating, and relationships. Tell us your favorite in the comments section.
