The craziest news Since Katy Perry's Josh Grobin Tattoo Fuss

Hello World. It has come to the attention of Planet Earth that Russia is pushing laws that are banning strong alcoholic drinks in airports and duty free shops. In other words the Russian borders are going sober.

I understand people are concerned about alcoholism. But why do they have to take away the most important places in the world to drink. Airports are one of the most needed places to drink, unless you're a pilot. And duty free shops = vacation and tourism. Also, the best times to drink. Not to mention that it is very difficult to link alcoholism to airport beverages. I say this ban is lame.
(Ok, I think you can still drink on a plane, but the anticipation comes before the flight. That's when you needed to be ossified (slang definition of ossified).).

Russia is the exquisite world capital of Vodka (sorry Finlandia), and in addition this is an issue of freedom of choice.

In case you're wondering how much of what I'm writing is legit: the answer is none.

  1. I don't think this will stick. Russia is more or less the most alcoholic country in the world--alcoholism rates through the roof, insane amounts of drinking at all times of the day, etc. Vodka is considered a folk remedy (source: one of my many Russian culture textbooks). If it does stick, it'll be a miracle.

    Oh, and freedom of choice + Russia = lolol

  3. mmorbo..respect for Poland.

    Adam..I try to be universal when it comes to thinking about Freedom of choice on these issues, but you do raise a point.

    If Russians get full freedom of choice with drinking they will drain the globe. Already, the president has stated that he is shocked at how many bottles of vodka are being downed in Russia. But hey, it happens.

  4. Poland = awesome. (I may just be saying that b/c I'm part Polish but w/e)

    I think freedom of choice is incredibly important... but it doesn't really come into play in Russia. drink your vodka or go to the gulag. trufax

  5. I think it's a strange ban; however, I don't honestly think it's a big deal. How long is a person in the airport before a flight? An hour or two or something like that. I think that it's possible for people to wait that long to drink. But any way, I think this is just a way to keep fewer people from taking Alcohol across the border.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to Match.com , single women are presented with
