My Evening With President Clinton
Earlier this month I was asked by a friend to be her date to her company's holiday party in New York City. She happens to work for the Clinton Foundation...as in the former President, Bill Clinton! Um...let me think about this...YES! Of course I'd go with her to the party!

The party was at a place called eSpace and it was gorgeous with white furniture and an awesome DJ. The drinks were incredible and I couldn't get over the amount of secret service walking around.

After about 20 minutes, the man of the hour walked in himself surrounded by four secret service men, it was former President Bill Clinton! The whole energy of the room changed. Men stood up straighter and fixed their ties and women (including myself) ran to the bathroom to put on more lipstick and check their hair before meeting him.

Then it was our turn to go up to him and have a picture and a quick chat. I told him I saw him speak in Milwaukee when I was in the sixth grade and he mentioned how much he enjoys Milwaukee and the large German population that is still there (which I appreciated, since I'm German). He was extrememly charming and it's true what people say, he makes you feel like you are the only person in the room when he speaks to you.

It was a night I will never forget and this is a photo I'll be sure to show my kids.

Don't Worry About Carbs
While conventional wisdom has dictated that people wanting to drop pounds should stick to protein at dinner, a new study suggests that people reconsider their evening carb fears. Inspired by Muslims’ eating patterns during Ramadan -- fasting during the day, carb-heavy celebratory meals at night, researchers from Hebrew University wondered what would happen if other populations saved their starchy meals for nighttime. They found that people's bodies responded positively to eating their carbs for dinner -- it helped regulate their hunger, satiety, and glucose levels.

Couldn't Save $100
This guy tried to work some magic in Disney World – and failed miserably. Emerito Pujol, 74, pretended he was a police officer in order to get into Epcot for free! The Miami resident wanted to avoid the $100 entrance fee, so he flashed a badge as he passed through the Orlando park’s turnstiles Saturday. He allegedly told a park employee that he was an undercover officer who was looking for someone. When a security guard approached him, he again claimed he was "in service" and was "guarding someone important." He finally admitted the truth when a real deputy asked him to produce his badge. The fake badge had the words “American Federation of Police” and “honorary member” on it. He was arrested and charged with unlawful use of a police badge, falsely impersonating an officer and petty theft. The only ride he got to go on was the ride to jail!

Working TOO Hard
A THIEF WHO DELIVERS!

A man in Connecticut stole a Chinese food delivery car last week…and continued making deliveries! He wasn’t just being considerate, though. Keith Hinds, 45, kept dropping off the orders so he could keep the customers’ money. The real delivery driver called police last Monday to report that his car had been stolen after he left it idling to run into a school. The driver also called his boss to notify customers that their orders were stolen along with the car. But it turns out they were none the wiser because Hinds took over the job. He was charged Friday with larceny, possession of less than half an ounce of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and other drug charges. On the plus side, he could have a real promising career as a delivery man.
