Productive Time Wasters

I've always loved cuff links on a man (call me old school) and THESE are both adding the classy touch but in a SUPER CLEVER WAY that'll have the men on your list squealing like 12 year old girls watching New Moon!

The eyeBROWS really do have it... tips on celebrity eyebrow-grooming found HERE.

From somewhat productive, to totally wasteful of your time but hopefully entertaining nonetheless....

A vid of Today's hottest male stars and their 'man crushes'....see it for yourself HERE. ( all are interesting save for Stephen Baldwin whose man crush is quite frankly odd).

And since New Moon is still raking it in by epic proportions: here's a little spoofy vid from my fav site evah:


Mary Jo Coady lives in Methuen, Massachusetts (--about 40 miles north of Boston). Last week, she was ironing some clothes when she noticed some residue on the bottom of the iron that vaguely resembles the image of JESUS CHRIST.

Where Did the Dollar Go?

"Have you ever heard about the three men that were out on the town? After having consumed more drink than they should, they decided to wear it off by staying overnight in a hotel. The desk clerk charged them $30.00 for the room. Shortly afterwards the desk clerk realized that he had overcharged the three men by $5.00. He calls the Bell Boy over, gives him the $5.00 and explains to him that he had overcharged the three men and asked him to go up and give them the $5.00. On his way up, the Bell Boy thinks they will be happy to get a refund so why don't I give them each $1.00. They will be happy and I will have picked up $2.00. But when he does that and gives each man $1.00, that means they only paid $9.00 each for the room, which is a total of $27.00; plus the $2.00 the Bell Boy pocketed is a total of $29.00. But they gave the desk clerk $30.00! Where did the extra $1.00 go??"


This is sort of a trick question, but it usually takes people a surprisingly long time to get it. The trick is the word "plus". In reality, the $2 should be subtracted from (not added to) the $27 to get $25 paid for the room. There is no missing dollar.

U of Montreal FUN VIDEO

Perez Hilton posted THIS LINK of a video created by a bunch of students at University of Montreal. While they all look they are having fun, there must have been a serious amount of organization involved as it appears the whole thing was shot in one continuous stream.

Help Send These Kids to the World Juniors

The Dartmouth Whalers Novice Intermediate hockey team, coached by Ray Boudreau, is looking for your votes to help send them to the World Junior Hockey Championships this December 27, 28 and 29.

The Tim-BR MART World Junior Hockey Video Challenge offers hockey teams a chance to win a trip to Saskatoon to attend the event. To enter, teams make a video and upload it on the contest website – then promote it for votes.

When hockey Dad, Craig Moore was told of the opportunity, he thought it was a way he could contribute to his son’s hockey experience saying, “I can’t skate but I can make videos.” Moore operates Spider Video, a Halifax-based video production company specializing in web-based video.

Boudreau, who also has a son on the team, thought the video contest, win or loose was a great opportunity for his players saying, “Developing hockey players is not just about skill development but also building a team approach to the game.” He adds, “Making the video was a fun experience and they all feel really proud about what they accomplished.”

The team is looking to their community to get behind them by voting for their video, Moore says, “We only have until November 21, when the contest closes, to generate votes so we’re hoping everyone will get behind “The Future of Hockey” and vote as much as possible.” Individual IP addresses can vote once every four hours and voters must select “five stars” to generate the highest possible rating.

You can see the video and vote for the kids by clicking on the link below.

Let's send the kids to the world juniors


What do Cabbage Patch Kids, Tickle-Me Elmo and the Furby all have in common?

--At one point or another, they were all must-have holiday gifts . . . and it was almost impossible to get your hands on them.

--Well, this year's must-have holiday toy seems to be something called Zhu Zhu Pets. Basically, they're little, motorized hamsters that zoom around a hamster "funhouse," complete with slides, ramps and tunnels. (???)

(--If you need a visual demonstration, check out an ad for Zhu Zhu Pets here . . .)


--Anyway, Zhu Zhu Pets were first released last month and they've been flying off the shelves. It's gotten to the point that the Zhu Zhu Pets, which sell for $8 at Wal-Mart, are fetching as much as $30 when resold on


This is very cute...

It's actually a salsa-dancing dog that's become all the rave on Spanish network Univision.

Daddy's Little Girl

Dear Breakfast Club,

My wife and I need some help settling a dispute that has been bothering us for a while now and we've both decided we'll go with whatever decission the majority of your listeners decide.

Here it goes: our 28-year-old daughter has been away from home for five years, and my wife and I do what we can to support her.

She has a steady job . . . but we give her money when she needs it . . . and on top of that, we're still paying her car insurance.

We're happy to help her, but we know she wastes a lot of her money when she goes out with her friends.

Here's the question. At what age should you cut off your kids financially? Is our daughter too old for her parents to still be helping her?

She's on vacation and out of the city and the radio this week so we're hoping you'll read our letter while she can't hear it.

Cosmetics in your Kitchen

Here are a few insights to beauty that our ancestors probably used daily. You have a health spa right in your kitchen:

Coffee- Brunettes and red heads- final rinse your hair with black coffee, leave it on. You'll love the shine.

Cornmeal- Mix half a cup of cornmeal and one tablespoon of salt. It's an excellent dry shampoo. Sprinkle it in your hair and brush out the dirt and oil.

Lemon Juice- Dry up a blemish- a little dab will do a few times a day.

Nails- Mix half cup of lemon juice and one cup of warm water. Soak for about five minutes. Rinse, pat dry, and then rub a little piece of the peel across your nails and buff.

Strawberries- Mash them up and brush your teeth. They remove yellowing and stains.

Vinegar- Add apple cider vinegar to warm water in a spray bottle. Spray your face once a day. It restores the ph balance.

Petroleum jelly- While your face is wet add a little of this and keep adding water until your face is covered. Adding water makes it non-greasy.

Oatmeal- Use equal amounts of dry oatmeal and water. Make a paste. Apply it to your face. When it feels tight and dry, rub it off, and then rinse. This removes dead skin and blackheads.

Cream Deodorant- Mix together: two teaspoons of baking soda, two teaspoons petroleum jelly and two teaspoons of talcum powder. Mix and heat in double boiler until a smooth cream forms. Place finished cream in an airtight jar.

Bread and Milk- Soak a piece of bread in milk and put it on your blemishes at night with a band-aid. They will be gone by morning.

Can you add any not mentioned here? Post it!

Keanu: Vampire or Immortal?!!!!

Guy really doesn't show his age, so this video is pretty funny and well-researched!




From adventurous, rebellious fall styles to updating the classics in your wardrobe, here's Glamour's list of Do's and Don'ts for fall fashion trends:


Try a softer take on the biker-babe look. Bomber jackets and motorcycle boots are everywhere this fall. But unless you own a Harley, skip the head-to-toe leather.
Try over-the-knee boots. Thigh-high boots are back and are a total DO, as long as you don't pair them with a teeny mini skirt. Pull 'em over jeans instead.
Embrace the season's hot colors. Swap out your dark winter coat for a bright color.
Go monotone. Wearing one color head-to-toe gives the illusion of being taller.
Do mix your prints. Mix patterned basics and wear with simple black tights.


Pair boxy pants with a baggy top. You can wear boxy pants, but match them with a pair of heels and slim-fitting, tucked-in top. Don't go baggy all over!
Overdo the neon. Keep it simple and don't wear neons with other bright shades.

Oprah devoted her entire show yesterday to Fall Fashion. There were many interventions check it out at her website.

Madonna and Lady Ga Ga on Saturday Night Live

Last weekend, Saturday Night Live aired a re-run of the Ryan Reynolds-hosted episode from last month, which featured a joint cameo by Lady Gaga and Madonna.

The Worst Spouse?

Here's a letter from Anonymous

I’m the worst spouse. I’ve been feeling badly lately, my wife doesn’t stop from morning ‘til night. She’s busy in the morning getting the kids up and fed and ready for school, gets herself ready for work, works all day and then comes home, makes dinner, cleans up, helps the kids with homework and works around the house until she falls into bed. She’s busy every moment it seems. I on the other hand have trouble taking care of myself. I watch sports all weekend and during the week I’m done after a days work….. I don’t know why she puts up with me.

What's the worst thing you do as a spouse?
