Um, did you guys see “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here” last night? If not, I’m really sorry because it was, in a word, amazing. Sanjaya from “American Idol” got chased by bees. Frangela, the hilarious duo from “Best Week Ever” who’ve been absent from my life for months now, are cast members. Also completely preposterous, the presence of Rod Blagojevich’s wife and Janice Dickinson. I hope they’ll be besties by the end of the season.
But the real story is, of course, Heidi and Spencer. Heidi cried a lot. And after finding out that, at some point, they’d have to take turns emptying the group’s PortaPotty, Spencer stormed off and gave us this sparkling gem:
“I’m too rich and I’m too famous to be sitting with these people and cleaning up their s**t in the jungle, my man. And this cast is devaluing our fame right now. I’m sitting next to VH1 comedians that I have never even seen before… I thought it was gonna be all celebrities.”

On Sunday afternoon, my little sister Lizz is marrying one of my best friends from high school, Pat. They’ve been together for 11 years, and are the kind of couple that looks alike, talks alike, and complements each other in every way, giving me a touch of faith in this whole crazy love thing. I am pumped for the ceremony, which will be held in my favorite park in New York City, right under the Brooklyn Bridge. I am pumped that Pat will finally be my brother-in-law, a term I’ve used to describe him for years anyway. I am pumped for the reception, which will feature barbecue and cupcakes, and a “Celebrate Good Times”-free wedding dance mix created by yours truly. Heck, I’m even pumped to wear my bridesmaid dress. But there is just one little thing I’m dreading about Sunday: I have no date. Keep reading »

No girl ever wants to show up to her prom wearing the exact same dress as someone else. Aimee Kick, a senior at Francis Howell North High School in Missouri, wanted to wear a creative prom dress that would not only be elegant and fashionable, but also one-of-a-kind. So she decided to make her own, but not out of fabric. She ruled out tea bags, stamps, bubble wrap, and aluminum foil, and settled on coffee filters when she realized the other materials were either perishable or not durable enough for a night of dancing. Aimee had become known as “the girl with the coffee cup” around school, so it was fitting that coffee filters served as inspiration. Movement and breathability were other important factors in deciding on the material. Aimee also wanted to be able to make and complete the dress on her own in a reasonable amount of time. Although she has three AP courses, an online college course, and a part-time job, Aimee folded, cut, stained, dyed, sewed, and blow-dried every single coffee filter used in the dress. She completed the dress in about a month, even though she has never made clothing from coffee filters. “When I really started to notice how into making the dress I got was the day before a large (and tedious) research paper was due. I kept saying to myself, ’Just finish the paper and then you can work on the dress as much as you want,’” Aimee told the Francis Howell School District. She said this project was more of a stimulating challenge than a difficulty.
Aimee isn’t the only high school student to don an unconventional dress for prom. Check out the Coke Can Pop Top Dress and the 2008 winner of the Stuck at the Prom Duck Brand Duct Tape Scholarship Contest.
