While holiday shopping over the weekend, I heard “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” like, five times. I really wish Andy Williams would stop trying to convince me—because really, give me summer anytime. Right now it’s cold and when the sun sets at 4 p.m., I get depressed on a daily basis.

NYC Weatherwoman Admits Lying About Attempted Sexual Assault

A New York City weatherwoman who has appeared on “Good Morning America” has confessed to lying to police about an attempted sexual assault. This November, Heidi Jones, 37, of WABC-TV reportedly claimed that two months earlier she had been jogging in Central Park when a Hispanic man in his 30s or 40s grabbed her, dragged her to a wooded area, and threatened to sexually assault her.

What’s Your Personal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”?

We were thrilled beyond words to learn that the Senate voted to repeal the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, which prevented gays from openly serving in the military. The Senate voted in favor of the repeal 65 to 31, and now it will go before President Obama to be signed into law. Said Obama, “Making this change will only underscore the professionalism of our troops as the best led and best trained fighting force the world has ever known. It is time to allow gay and lesbian Americans to serve their country openly. No longer will many thousands more be asked to live a lie in order to serve the country they love.”

And now, we can take the idea of “don’t ask, don’t tell” a little less seriously. After all, there are plenty of things we think actually deserve being put into this category. Liiiike telling us about how wasted you got last night. Or the terrible sex you had with somebody else’s boyfriend. And especially talking about the explosive diarrhea you had this morning after breakfast. So, tell us: what’s on your personal “don’t ask, don’t tell” list? Keep reading »
