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.

Don't Believe It? Just Watch!
"Uptown Funk" is one of the hottest tunes in the country. It's one of those songs that gets your blood pumping and toes tapping. Until now. Thanks to Alex Bove and the Dancing Grandpas, "Uptown Funk" got slowed down - well, a little bit. It's called "Oldtown Cover," and everyone in the video is at least 65 years old... So some of the moves are way slower than the Bruno Mars version. Naturally.

Making the Most of Nothing
Steve Harvey has proved himself a master of making the most of some of the ridiculous moments on Family Feud. But this one from last month takes the cake. Simple question: "Other than fruit, name something you might choose by squeezing it first." But neither contestant would buzz in. Because neither one could think of an answer. And that left Steve to fill the gap while the show sort of reset itself. Watch!   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Post by Family Feud 2.

Live Long and Prosper
Leonard Nimoy, best known for playing the iconic Mister Spock in a variety of Star Trek movies and TV shows, passed away on Friday at the age of 83. Four days earlier, he posted his final tweet, which sounds like he knew he was leaving... A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP — Leonard Nimoy (@TheRealNimoy) February 23, 2015 Since he passed, a lot of media outlets have been posting tidbits about him and Spock. One of the more interesting is this interview from several years ago where he explained the origins of Spock's famous hand gesture that went along with the Vulcan salute, "Live Long and Prosper."

Kelly Quits the Cops
Kelly Osbourne went through with her threat to leave Fashion Police. Last week, she was pretty upset over a comment her co-host Giuliana Rancic made about Zendaya's dreadlocks that created quite a stir. She made her departure official on Friday, and instantly, her mother - Sharon Osbourne of The Talk - applauded her. .@KellyOsbourne, I am so proud of you. You can never be bought. You always wear your heart on your sleeve. #ProudToBeYourMum — Sharon Osbourne (@MrsSOsbourne) February 28, 2015 Meanwhile, Billy Bush from Access Hollywood took a few shots at Kelly before her departure, and that angered the other half of Kelly's DNA pool - her dad, rocker Ozzy Osbourne - who had a choice tweet for Billy... @BillyBush stop acting like a bitch. Act like a man. Lay off Kelly or we'll be going to hospital to get my foot out of your ass. God Bless. — Ozzy Osbourne (@OzzyOsbourne) February 27, 2015

When in Chicago...
On Sunday, thousands of people jumped into Chicago's Lake Michigan. It was time for the annual Polar Plunge, which raised close to $1 million for Special Olympics On hand were a few celebrities. Vince Vaughn, an area native, jumped in wearing a Chicago Blackhawks jersey. Lady Gaga showed up and took the plunge with her fiance, Taylor Kinney, one of the actors from Chicago Fire. Ironically, Gaga was covered pretty much head to toe, wearing more to take a dip in the lake than she wears to perform...     ❤️ feels so good to do things for a good cause like the Special Olympics. It's great donate money, but also great to donate a gesture of love for those who deserve to be showered with it. A photo posted by @ladygaga on Mar 1, 2015 at 9:24am PST Check out the video from The Chicago Sun-Times that includes some stills of Vince, Gaga and Taylor...

50 Shades of SNL
Dakota Johnson, star of 50 Shades of Grey, hosted Saturday Night Live this past weekend. Her opening monologue wasn't bad. She poked fun at 50 Shades - actually took a couple of good shots at it. And interestingly, she introduced her parents - Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson - who were in the front row. Only Don spoke. Probably just as well...

Showing Your True Colors
It's entirely possible the world went insane on Thursday. Someone posted a picture of a two-toned striped dress to Tumblr on Wednesday, and asked simply: “Guys please help me - is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can't agree…" And then the digital world exploded. Is it white and gold? Or blue and black? It's turning into an almost uncivil war. All sorts of people weighed in, and their opinions are strong. Some, like Taylor Swift, are simply confused. I don't understand this odd dress debate and I feel like it's a trick somehow. I'm confused and scared. PS it's OBVIOUSLY BLUE AND BLACK — Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) February 27, 2015 The folks at The Today Show have the skinny. Or do they? You be the judge.   Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Llamas on the Lam
A couple of llamas got loose in Sun City, Arizona yesterday afternoon, and the helicopter-shot video of the event quickly went viral. Fox News picked it up, and (sorry) ran with it. Shepard Smith provided running commentary on the "llama trot," and some of it is pretty funny. It's just not clear that it's intentionally funny. "Were they someone's, like, backyard llamas?" he wondered. "Were they babysitting?" "This is something I've not seen recently in New York," he said, "and we seem to see all kinds of weirdness up here in the New York." We'll call this a slow news day phenomenon...

How is This a Thank You?
Kim Kardashian just reached 27 million followers on Instagram. This is where you say "Whoopee" or "Yahoo," I guess. So to say thanks, Kim posted a selfie to her Instagram page. A selfie showing part of her butt wrapped around a pretty small thong bottom. I'm sorry, but how is this a thank you? Is there anyone on the planet who hasn't yet seen all of the KimButt? I daresay no...     27 mil!!!!! Thank you so much!!!! I love you all!!!!! 😘 A photo posted by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on Feb 26, 2015 at 1:42pm PST
