Jimmy Fallon is the talk show king. I swear, that guy can make any celebrity comfortable and have a good time.
Just before Thanksgiving, Fallon had Rashida Jones and Carrie Underwood on. At the end of the show, the three of them did a holiday medley. It was awesome to see a different side of Rashida and a very comfortable (and adorable) Carrie Underwood.
I had forgotten about the Christmas song at the end of the medley.
Forward to the 3:54 time on the video (or watch the whole thing):
It's co-ed naked yoga. The class is happening at Bold Naked in NYC.
When I think of what happens to my body in yoga, the thought of it being nude makes me EXTREMELY worried for others. Add the fact that men are in the class with no clothes on and my brain goes all "hot mess".
There's good naked and there's bad naked. I think we all know where this falls.
The yoga studio owner says, "When you get rid of the clothes, you get rid of the labels — and that’s a beautiful thing."
Would you ever do it?
Remember that one time when Kanye wouldn't stop yapping? Oh, wait...that one time is still happening.
Just last week, Kanye had compared his getting up on stage to the dangers cops and soldiers face.
Well, Brimfield Police Chief David Oliver has something to say about that. The Ohio Chief wrote an open letter to the completely delusional artist starting off with, "You sir, are as misguided as they come."
He goes on to say, "Since you are accustomed to danger, from your life as an international rapper, I am strongly encouraging you immediately abandon your career as a super star and join the military."
Many amazing and insightful words were written but my most favorite was when referring to the Taliban shooting at our soldiers (Kanye being one of them), Chief David Oliver writes, "I'm sure they would just drop weapons and surrender. You could quite possibly end all wars, just from the enemy being star-struck."

The middle finger Christmas lights display started last year. Sarah, the homeowner, says she used this display to send a message to her neighbors. As you can imagine, a whole lot of drama stemmed from this non-festive showing.
In fact, neighbors actually CLIMBED ON HER ROOF to cut down the lights and left the mess on her yard.
I have a couple neighbors I could do without living near but to go to these lenghts?
What's more? Sarah has put up the diplay for a second year in a row and SHE DOESN'T EVEN LIVE IN THE HOUSE!!
It's too much.
Too much awesome.
If there is one thing I could say about Sarah, it's that she is committed.
The full story is HERE.

Yesterday, John Mayer opened my eyes to SWANTS. Um...he's now reaching the level of "Most awesome person in my life" for showing me what SWANTS are. Have you heard?
SWANTS = Sweater + Pants. I'm sorry, what?
I insantly googled these things and came up with a tutorial. WestKnits has posted a video (watch below) and a tutorial on how to make these on your own.
Have I mentioned BRILLIANT?!?!?
On Friday, my thighs were trying to break free of leggings that just didn't cut it (image above - bottom right square). Well, they would have for a size 2 person - one of which I am not.
What I should have been wearing:
Watch this video and tell me you aren't dying for a pair of SWANTS this very moment!
I'm having a Pinterest party tonight!
From our dinner to dessert to the crafts we're making - it's all from Pinterest.
A group of girls are converging at my house (in pajamas... duh) to make Christmas gifts.
We'll be making gifts but what they look like when we're finished could either be a masterpiece or a hot freaking mess.
I'll instagram the whole thing tonight with the hashtag #PinterestParty so you can follow along if you'd like. Maybe you can make your own craft? It could be virutal.
What is a Pinterest party, anyway? How do you host one?
Thanks for asking. Click HERE to find out how.
At midnight, Beyonce dropped her latest album to the surprise of EVERYONE!
The self-titled album features Jay Z, Frank Ocean, Blue Ivy (yes, theeee Blue Ivy that is the spawn of Beyonce and Jay-Z), Justin Timberlake, Michelle and Kelly of Destiny's Child, Drake and Pharrell.
There are 14 tracks and 17 videos. It's a visual album. BRILLIANT!
See the teaser here:
I will do my VERY BEST not to express my personal feelings of disgust, heartbreak, disappointment...you catch my drift.
16-year old Ethan Couch killed four people and injured two because he was driving drunk and high on Valium. Drunk, as in: Alcohol content of .24 (more than triple the legal limit). Ethan slammed into a broken-down car on the side of the road killing the owner of the vehicle along with a mother, a daughter and a youth pastor who had stopped to help the stranded driver.
Ethan isn't going to prison. It's not because he's under 18, it's because he suffers from "Affluenza". His defense team actually used "affluenza" in court siting that he was a rich kid who was never taught "right from wrong".
No, this isn't a joke.
Instead of serving time for FOUR counts of vehicular homicide, driving under the influence, etc, etc, etc, Ethan has been sentenced to 10 years probation which includes counseling at a posh center in California that will cost upwards of $450,000 a year.
Meanwhile, Eric Boyles, the man who lost his wife and daughter, is outraged by the ruling. Boyles says, "Money always seems to keep [Couch] out of trouble. Ultimately today, I felt that money did prevail. If [he] had been any other youth, I feel like the circumstances would have been different."
It's your turn. Sound off in the comment section below.
A "Christmas Miracle" is a perfect way to describe what WestJet did. After seeing the video being shared all weekend, I finally took the time to watch. I'm so glad I did. I'm typing through blurry eyes. Happy tears, of course.
This whole act of kindness doesn't seem to happen outside of the movies...until now.
Who wants to fly WestJet, now?
