It was a beautiful weekend here in Massachusetts. The weather was lovely, the Red Sox won three in a row for the first time in what feels like forever, and I actually got enough studying done during the week at the office while my boss was on vacation that I got to spend a few hours not staring at a textbook. While I revel in my pathetically scarce hours of free time, let me reflect on a few people that a worse weekend than me (and you).
In my opinion, there are few worse things than having to attend a wedding alone. Sure, there is always the possibility that one of the (few) other single people there are good looking enough to hook up with, but odds are, you will be one of the lone singletons in an endless sea of slow-dancing couples. Everyone’s favorite self-appointed Lord, Scott Disick, seems to have discovered that this weekend when he posted this Instagram from the wedding of his best friend JJ Corsini on Friday:
Awwwww, is the Lord regretting his breakup with Kourtney Kardashian? Probably should have thought about that before you started man-whoring it up all over the globe, asshole. [via US Weekly]
I wouldn’t get into a ring with Ronda Rousey for all of the handbags in Nordstrom. Not only did Bethe Correia do so voluntarily on Saturday night at UFC 190, she did so after pissing Rousey off by making thinly veiled comments about Rousey’s father’s suicide. Because poking a bear that took out her last opponent in FOURTEEN seconds is a good idea, right? It only took a little more than double that for Correia – thirty-four seconds to be exact. Rousey used a series of right and left strikes to take out Correia in the first round of the fight in Rio De Janeiro to improve to a 12-0 record. Rousey said after the (very-short) bout, “I hope that nobody really brings up my family anymore when it comes to fights. I hope this is the last time.” If your opponents have any brains, it definitely should be. [via MSN]
Most people remember Eliza Dushku as the tough-but-hot cheerleader Missy in the original “Bring It On.” If you’ve forgotten, let me refresh your memory:
Anyway, Dushku has been living in a Pennsylvania hotel room for over two months while filming a movie when she was forced to move on Friday for perhaps the worst of reasons — One Direction. The boy-banders were going to be in town performing Sunday night and apparently needed the entire floor of the hotel, including Dushku’s room. Dushku referenced the name of the band’s newest single in her Instagram post about the situation:
#DragMeDown 👌😤 Don't worry @OneDirection.. It was super chill movin outta my hotel room so u can have the ENTIRE FLOOR I've been staying on for 2 months 😁 #OnLocationLife #HotelWars #ActorProblems #WhatHaveYouDoneForMeLately #OneDirection Took 2 hrs this Friday afternoon before work 😂 Enjoy #Pittsburgh #PA! 😘
As someone who reached gold hotel status by March this year, I feel Dushku’s pain — packing and unpacking is a total bitch. But maybe you can get Harry’s number for me? [via Gossip Cop]
There are a lot of places that I would go to wasted. The bar, a sporting event, a house party, the office, most funerals. But the car wash isn’t really high on my list. But apparently, Dennis Rodman likes to knock a few back and take his whip to get spiffed up. Rodman showed up a car wash in Costa Mesa, CA on Sunday afternoon reeking of alcohol and acting weird, although I’m not entirely sure what qualifies as weird for Rodman. According to TMZ, they were told that The Worm “walked up to a man and put his hand on his shoulder and said, ‘Hey white guy’ and then ‘walked up to several girls, telling them they were hot and they should check out his boat in Newport.’” Peeps were concerned that Rodman would get behind the wheel once his car was clean, so they called local police. Since the police didn’t actually see the former all-Star driving the car, they couldn’t arrest him for DUI, but they did tell Rodman that he could not drive the vehicle. Some random lady then offered to drive Dennis home, and he accepted. You have to feel sort of bad for Rodman that he didn’t have anywhere else to go besides the car wash… but at least his new chauffeur will have one hell of a story to tell her friends. [via TMZ]
An Unnamed English Man
I imagine that being a 911 operator is not an easy job. Not only do people call about actual crimes, they call about really, really stupid things, and no matter what, you have to talk to them. That was the case in West Yorkshire, England recently when a man called to report a crime. The law-breaking? His girlfriend had let her cat eat his bacon. Listen to the amazing audio here:
Now, we could mock this guy for A.) wanting to have his girlfriend arrested for giving away this bacon to a cat, B.) wanting to have the cat arrested, or C.) both of the above. But luckily for him, his name was not mentioned when the West Yorkshire police realized the call to warn people against calling the emergency line for non-critical reasons. Plus… this is bacon we are talking about, people. And while the emergency operator calmly advised the caller that “a cat eating bacon is not a criminal offence,” I think we can all agree that it should be. And until it is, no bacon is safe.
