Adele Winning Big at the Grammys
There’s something about Adele’s voice that makes us want to sob and eat ice cream (and maybe write unsendable letters to our ex), so we were overjoyed when Adele won Best Album, Best Record, Best Pop Solo, and basically every other award at the Grammys. After having throat surgery to take care of polyps, she sounded better than ever on the big night.
Whitney Houston Dying
Speaking of things that make us want to sob, Whitney Houston passed away at age 48 in Beverly Hills on the 11th. She’d had drug and alcohol problems for years, but we always hoped she’d make a comeback worthy of one of the best voices of the 20th century. Miss you, Whit.
12-year-old Noah Lamaide managed to raise over $10,000 from charitable donors in one month to save his grandmother’s house from a Feb. 15th foreclosure date. The house had been in the family for three generations. This is certainly an inspiring story, but it’s pretty depressing that times have gotten so tough that a twelve-year-old is more effective than the federal government at stopping foreclosure.
Whitney Houston, singer and actress, died Feb 11th. in a hotel room at age 48.
Whether you love or hate Valentine’s Day, there is one thing we can all agree on… the amount of clearance chocolate afterwards is FANTASTIC. For the rest of February there is no such thing as full price chocolate as stores attempt to unload the last of their love-day themed boxes. It’s a chocolate lover’s dream, as long as you don’t mind getting your fix from a tacky box that says, “I love you” in obnoxious script letters. But we don’t think you will. How can anyone turn away chocolate that is practically free?
Heart Attack Grill
Any restaurant that has a sign reading, “Over 350 Pounds Eats Free” should be avoided at all costs. Recently, a man had a heart attack while eating the Triple Bypass Burger at the heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas. Tourists started taking pictures of the man as he began to sweat and shake, thinking it was a stunt by management designed to play into the restaurant’s name. The restaurant rates its burgers on a scale of one bypass to a quadruple bypass, something no human being should ever consider eating. Here’s a tip, if you’re offered a free meal for being morbidly obese or the menu is named after surgeries you would never want to have, don’t eat there.
