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.

But Can She Sing Country?
The Academy of Country Music Awards were presented in Dallas last night at the AT&T Stadium. So many great performances. But this one had me shaking my head a little. Country legends Rascal Flatts teamed up with pop star Christina Aguilera. Both wonderful acts in their own rights. But together? I don't know. Something doesn't seem quite right. What do you think?

Amazing Baseball Improvisation
Here's something you don't see every day. Better yet, here's something you hardly ever see. Chicago Cubs pitcher Jon Lester fielded a line drive back to him, and the ball got caught in the webbing of his glove. Rather than fight with it, he took the glove off and tossed it and the ball to the first baseman. The first baseman dropped his own mitt, caught Lester's, never dropped the ball, and the runner was out. Check it out.

Let It Go, Senator!
This is sort of cool - pun unintended. Senator Pat Roberts was questioning a witness at a Senate hearing on Thursday, and in the middle of the testimony, his cell phone rang. His ringtone? "Let It Go," from Disney's Frozen. The senator earned a few chuckles as he turned off the phone and told the witness to just "let it go." Funny stuff... Check out the video, and the senator's follow-up tweet.     Somebody had to tell the Obama Administration to "Let it go." #forthegrandkids — Pat Roberts (@SenPatRoberts) April 16, 2015

Super Disappointing?
There's been a lot of buzz about the Batman v Superman movie, especially centered on Ben Affleck's casting as the Dark Knight. But if the recently leaked and then released trailer for the movie is any indication, maybe Ben Affleck's not a problem. I've watched the trailer a half-dozen times, hoping to get as excited about it as with others released recently for other films. But I can't. It looks dark and disturbing. Isn't the job of a trailer to help make the film look the best it possibly can? The movie's not coming out for another year or so, so maybe they'll have the chance to fix things up...

What's This Ad For Again?
Okay, I get it. It's an ad for a woman's personal grooming project. But it takes a couple of times to figure it out. And upon reflection, is that the best area to introduce to a power tool? Meanwhile, I might get one to handle my unruly Bonsai bushes...

Where Did I Put Those Beanie Babies?
Imagine this. You're walking through a yard sale and you spot a purple Beanie Baby. Remember those little stuffed animals from the 90s that were all the rage? People collected them in the hopes that some day, they'd be worth much more than the face value. That didn't pan out, so they ended up in bins and bags in basements all around the world. Lots of them pop up in yard sales. So a couple in Cornwall, England spotted a purple one, and recognized it as a fairly rare one - a Princess Di Beanie Baby.  He grabbed it up, paying about $15 for it. And when he researched it, he found it was one of only 100 made, and could be worth up to $93,000. Now where did I put those Beanie Babies?

The All-Right is Strong with this One!
This is just too good not to share. The internet is going nuts with everyone's reaction to the latest trailer for the new Star Wars film. And then comes this mash-up, putting a scene from Interstellar together with the trailer, making it look like Matthew McConaughey is watching and reacting to it. And it's amazing.

Ellen vs. Matt Escalates
We're at war, people. Well, it's an early morning versus daytime war, between Matt Lauer and Ellen DeGeneres. The most recent salvo is Matt's. This comes after Ellen started jazzing up Matt's mornings with some racy Photoshopped clips. Matt retaliated by filling Ellen's car with 20,000 ping pong balls. Ellen sent her viewers to Rockefeller Plaza to test for Matt's tickle points. And now, Matt paid to have billboards erected around Los Angeles, showing Ellen as a plumber, butt-crack and all. Funny stuff. Even Ellen thinks so. No telling what will be next though... Look what I saw on my way to work today. Good one, @MLauer. #MattsRevenge pic.twitter.com/8QCUw5wqJM — Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) April 16, 2015

Referee Trip & Fall Makes Highlight Reel
It's always funny to see someone take a fall - as long as the only thing hurt is a guy's ego, right? The other night, NBA referee Joey Crawford took a center-court face-plant during the Toronto Raptors home game against the Charlotte Hornets. It's tough to tell what he did - probably tripped over his own feet - but he did make a nice headfirst slide. What better way to watch than with a continuous Vine, right?

Scary Road to the CMAs
Lady Antebellum's singer Hillary Scott was on her tour bus, heading to Dallas for a week of shows culminating in the Country Music Awards this Sunday night. On Interstate 30 in Garland, a tire blew out and caused a fire. Everyone got out safely, but Hillary lost many of her personal belongings. Scary moments indeed. Glad to hear everyone's okay though.

50 Shades of... Wait! What Did You Do to Your Hair?
Dakota Johnson is between films right now. She completed 50 Shades of Grey and was just about everywhere on the promotional tour. And the word in the industry is that the sequel will start shooting fairly soon. So what's up with the new haircut? What has become her trademark Anastasia Steele long brown hair is now a bob. Boom. Let's hope she had permission. Check out the report from MM1 News. The read by the robotic and accented voice makes it almost hilarious.

The Force Continues to Awake...
Another official trailer is out for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, coming to theaters in December. In this one, Luke narrates over a variety of images - "The force is strong in my family. My father has it. I have it. My sister has it. You have that power too." No one's saying who that you is - but I guess that's why they call this a teaser. It's great to see Han and Chewbacca ever so briefly at the end. I'm ready. How about you?

What's Going On at ESPN?
Seems like the folks who work at ESPN need to learn to keep their thoughts to themselves. You'll remember Keith Olberman got in some trouble not too long ago for tweets he made about Penn State and a fundraising effort there. Now ESPN reporter Britt McHenry got herself suspended for launching a tirade against a tow company's employee. It's pretty nasty - if you want to watch it, you'll have to go to this link - but don't do it at work. Britt apologized, but too little too late. She'll be off the air for a week. Others are calling for her to be let go entirely. What do you think?   In an intense and stressful moment, I allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and (cont) http://t.co/Wx37XF2QtM — Britt McHenry (@BrittMcHenry) April 16, 2015

The Newest Avenger
Ellen DeGeneres breaks another Hollywood secret. This time, it's all about the newest Avenger - the Honker. Okay, it's Ellen, inserting herself into the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron as a joke-telling horn-honking superhero standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, The Hulk and the rest of the gang. This could make the movie even more interesting, don't you think?

Hard Enough to Play Real Drums...
It takes years to learn to play the drums. Even longer if you want to play them well. Imagine how much more difficult it must be to play the drums well if you're a marionette. Well, if you're the puppeteer manipulating the marionette, and the marionette is playing a drum set made of tin cans. And the marionette has to keep up with Rush's classic "Tom Sawyer." Impossible, you say? Think again and witness... It's pretty cool what's happening in this video.

Ah, Yes, the Buckingham Banana Peel!
The royal guards stationed outside Buckingham Palace in London are famous for their crisp movements and fierce focus. Tourists try all the time to get them to laugh - even just to crack a smile - to no avail. Which makes what happened on Tuesday even funnier. During a routine changing of the guard, one soldier somehow managed to slip and fall while shifting to one side. He got up quickly, but he was smiling a bit. He stopped very quickly, but it was caught on someone's cell phone - of course - and now it's gone viral. Have a look...

Carpool Karaoke, the Latest Craze
James Corden is starting off strong in his new gig on CBS's Late Late Show. Strong guests, strong performances, and strong skits. Like this one, where he's carpooling with Jennifer Hudson. When songs come on the radio, they have no choice but to sing along, now do they? And when they pull in to a drive-through, why not let Jennifer Hudson sing the order for you? All that and more. Funny stuff.

Josh & Kelly Team Up for Phantom Duet
If you're a fan of musical theater, you're of course familiar with Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera and one of its more beautiful tunes, "All I Ask of You." It's a haunting tune, really, and somewhat operatic. Enter Josh Groban and his new album, "Stages" - his salute to musical theater. He tackles the role of Raoul, opposite Kelly Clarkson's Christine. This is not your typical Phantom, and there's not a thing wrong with that. Give a listen.

The Epitome of TMI
Okay, maybe E! is starting to reach on its reality shows. Their show, Botched, features plastic surgery nightmares. And last night's season premiere focused on Tiffany Pollard, the self-professed queen of reality TV. The star of VH1's Flavor of Love decided to get breast augmentation surgery when she hit the big time - no pun intended - inspired by Dolly Parton. She's none too happy about the outcome, and of course, being the queen of reality TV, she doesn't mind sharing her story. I'm sort of wishing she hadn't...

Hail to You, Robin Williams
Jamie Costa is a comic/ actor from South Carolina. He's making a name for himself with celebrity impressions. And this week, he released a reel of impressions of Robin Williams in a variety of roles. Twenty of them, to be precise - from Mork to Teddy Roosevelt and many others in between. He calls it his "tribute to the man whose spark ignited my passion." Pretty good work, if I do get to pass judgment...

Oh No Pokemon Didn't...
File this one under Seriously? A number of websites are reporting that the Creflo Dollar Ministries - that's a guy's name, by the way - has conducted a study that determined that Pokemon, the cartoon of the 80s and 90s, pointed children who were teenagers in that era toward homosexuality. The quote most often seen: teens ”had their sexuality warped by Ash and his fruity friends.” How about that? And here I thought it was Tinky Winky the Purple Teletubby who was responsible for turning kids gay...

Milk Milk Lemonade
Amy Schumer's the hottest thing in comedy these days. Her concerts sell-out. She was a hit hosting the MTV Movie Awards over the weekend. She wrote and starred in Trainwreck. And her Comedy Central show, Inside Amy Schumer, starts a new season. They're calling her the new Queen of Shocking TV Comedy. And here's the promo for her show - "Milk Milk Lemonade" - sort of a very grown-up version of "All About That Bass." Think twice before opening this one up at work...   Inside Amy Schumer Get More: Comedy Central,Funny Videos,Funny TV Shows

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished
Jake Caputo's a man with an idea. He tweeted out a message to the world asking people what they'd pay for a standalone HBO streaming service. He even set up a website in 2012 called takemymoneyhbo.com. And it looks like HBO was listening. And now they're ready to talk seriously with Jake - and take his money. Who better to collect, than Paulie Walnuts and Big Pussy from The Sopranos, am I right? Check out this promo!

Game of the Holy Grail
Game of Thrones is back, and all is well with the world. Well, unless you live in Westeros. Or on The Wall. But it's Game of Thrones. In honor of that, here's a little Throwback Thursday fun.

Why yes, I think it would...

Cookie Meets Cookie

Insert her character from Empire - Cookie Lyon - into a show that already had a character named Cookie - Sesame Street. The result is pretty brilliant, with a new Cookie Monster shaking thinkgs up on the street we all know and love.
