Snooki To Ring In The New Year … In A Dropping Hamster Ball

MTV has found its magic ingredient to stay relevant in a post music video world—”Jersey Shore.” And thus, the cast of the addictively sleazy show will be front and center at 2010′s MTV New Year’s Eve Bash. The special has lined up a series of “Shore” stunts to get viewers tuning in. The biggest and most outlandish of which has to be the plan to put Snooki in her own ball and have her drop along with Times Square’s legendary orb to ring in the New Year, hamster-style. The rest of the “Shore” slummers have been assigned the task of turning the NYC crowd into a massive fist-pumping mosh pit in hopes of breaking a Guinness World Record. For what? I’m not sure. Largest public exhibition of douchebaggery, perhaps? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “I’m Stressed About New Year’s Eve”

I’m in school in the UK and my wonderful boyfriend is in school in Michigan. I’m coming to stay with him for a couple weeks over New Year’s (one week in the middle, when he’s in classes, I’ll go to see my parents in NC), but there’s a problem: he wants to go to NYC for NYE where all his friends from undergrad will be and he wants me to pay for our flights and he’ll pay me back for both when he gets money he’s owed in January. I worry that if I pay for the tickets now, it will put me in a very tight money situation for the next few weeks until he pays me, and who knows if he’ll even be able to pay me promptly?! I get very nervous with money and budgeting, and he is very lax about “I owe you” and I worry it may be months or more before I’m paid back. I know when our relationship gets more serious we will have to talk about finances and how we handle money together, but this is hitting me in the face, and I feel unprepared. We were planning to go to Chicago for New Year’s — just the two of us — which would be a lot cheaper than going to NYC ($450 cheaper!), but he’d be upset about not being with his friends. At the end of the day, I’m sure I’ll be just really happy to be with him wherever we are, as I haven’t seen him in three months, but here I am fretting about money and I can’t help myself. What do you think I should do? — Pay it Forward?
