Guy Lies To Bartender About Being Alone When He Goes To Buy Wine For His Date, Ends Up Spending The Evening With Him

There are many ways to screw up a date. You could spend the evening talking about yourself only, or your ex, or you can get steaming drunk and make a complete ass of yourself, for example. This story, posted on subreddit alan-light (not the actual photo) It began at the cinema, and a fancy one at that. In Europe, it’s quite normal to grab a couple of beers for the movie, but this place, presumably somewhere in the U.S., had wine. Wine! Now, this bartender had clearly taken a shine to this guy. Either that, or Jared is simply one of the nicest and most sympathetic people around. But how would his date react? Would she be as understanding? Almost …

Karen Pence responds to Pete Buttigieg’s criticism of her husband: ‘They’ve always had a great relationship’

(CNN)South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s recent rise in the 2020 presidential race has featured a steady stream of attacks against Vice President Mike Pence, the former Indiana governor who had a working relationship with the mayor during his time as the head of the state. Karen Pence responded to that on Tuesday. “I’m just like, ‘Pete, did you not like that,’ because that’s what the vice president said about him,” she said. “So what’s the problem with that?” Buttigieg appeared to respond to the comments from Pence’s orbit on Tuesday, tweeting, “People will often be polite to you in person, while advancing policies that harm you and your family. You will be polite to them in turn, but you …

MillerCoors sues Anheuser-Busch over corn syrup Super Bowl ad

New York (CNN Business)The maker of Miller Lite and Coors Light doesn’t see the funny side of Bud Light’s corn syrup Super Bowl ads. MillerCoors said in Thursday’s lawsuit that Anheuser-Busch “plotted an extensive and pervasive advertising scheme designed to frighten consumers into switching away from Miller Lite and Coors Light to Bud Light.” It accused Anheuser-Busch of using corn syrup as a fermentation aid in drinks such as Stella Artois Cidre and Bud Ice. MillerCoors said it never uses high fructose corn syrup, which it says is different from corn syrup. But it alleged that Anheuser-Busch uses high fructose corn syrup in some of its drinks such as Rita’s Berry-A-Rita. The American Heart Association recommends that people limit the …

Don’t worry, Lorraine Kelly isn’t being fake

“She may not like the guest she interviews, she may not like the food she eats, she may not like the film she viewed – but that is where the performance lies,” Judge Dean said in the ruling. So has Lorraine Kelly, a gold-standard national treasure, been fooling us all? Image copyright Shutterstock Image caption Andrew H Walker’s series of portraits explored the idea of the multiple personas of celebrities like Elisabeth Moss “Lorraine’s value to ITV lies in the image that she’s created and her emotional appeal with audiences, and that brand value can easily be taken to other channels,” says Jeetendr Sehdev, celebrity branding expert and author of The Kim Kardashian Principle. “I think viewers are aware that …

‘Saturday Night Live’ accused of plagiarizing two raunchy sketches

CATHOLIC CHURCH DEMANDS APOLOGY FOR PETE DAVIDSON JOKES FROM ‘SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE’ “Imagine, one day you come home and it looks like somebody’s robbed your house,” Hoffman told Variety. “What do you want from that situation? We feel like somebody took our stuff, and this isn’t the kind of thing where you can just get it back or call your insurance company to have it replaced, so at this point we’re just speaking out about it.” An NBC spokesperson declined to comment. A “Saturday Night Live” source noted that “The Pumpkin Patch” and the other “SNL” sketch in question, “Pound Puppy,” were penned by different writers, but did not identify who wrote either sketch.

Why Democrats hate the Electoral College and Republicans love it

(CNN)Funny thing. Democrats, who keep losing elections where they get more votes, want to get rid of the Electoral College and Republicans, who keep winning elections where they get less votes, want to keep it. “Well, my view is that every vote matters,” Warren said. “And the way we can make that happen is that we can have national voting. And that means get rid of the Electoral College and everybody counts.” Plus, 11 states and the District of Columbia have joined something called the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, whereby states would simply agree to pledge their electoral votes to the national popular vote winner. Colorado became the 12th state to join that effort last week and Delaware and …

They met at secondary school and have been together since they were 16 Robin and Cat Langs eight-week-old daughter, asleep in her fathers arms, has a middle name they picked out when they had only been going out for a couple of months 15 years ago.

After Decades In The Business, Mary Kay Place Is Finally A Leading Lady

Diane,” now open in limited release and available on video on demand. Still, that makes it no less surprising to realize that “Diane” is Place’s first lead role in a theatrically released film. Better late than never. She’s incredible as a New England mother struggling to figure out what her senior years should look life. Diane’s facade masks inner turmoil stemming from her drug-addicted son (Jake Lacy), mistakes from her past and the near-crippling passage of time that eventually engulfs us all. How does it make you feel that this is your first lead role in a movie? IFC Films Mary Kay Place in “Diane.” I had several people send me scripts that had lead roles in them, but when …

I Grew Up With The Wealthy & ConnectedHere’s Why The College Scam Shouldn’t Surprise Anyone Betches

I’m a person who’s followed celebrity news since I was a kid (like, I had subscriptions to Us Weekly and PEOPLE in fourth grade), and even I did not anticipate the celebrity college admissions scandal blowing up like it has. When the news first broke, I was like, “Perfect. Now that Aunt Becky is relevant again, I can segue more easily into the story about how two women at Friendly’s said I was a dead ringer for her when I was 16.” Also, if we’re being honest, I would drop $500,000 just to not have to endure the embarrassment of having a child who unabashedly calls themselves a “YouTuber” and “influencer.” But beyond that, I was pretty unfazed about the …

‘Reading bedtime stories helped me survive prison’

Lewis Hardy was struggling in prison, feeling isolated from his young family and increasingly “cold”. Then he was shown a way of doing something that many parents take for granted – reading to his children – and everything began to change.

Come to the pub with us lot.” Image copyright Lewis Hardy Image caption Lewis reading in 2019 …

‘Vanderpump Rules’ Recap: Yellow Robe Smith Betches

Anyway, this week we start right back in the middle of Schwartz and Katie’s argument. Schwartz calls Katie a “disaster of a human being” which isn’t a good thing to say to your wife but also isn’t a lie. And herein lies the problem: Schwartz asks Katie why she can’t just tell him that she’s upset, and her reply? “I don’t wanna have to tell you!” Look, Schwartz may know how to use the word “cacophony” correctly, but he’s no mind reader. Cut the poor dude a break. Kristen announces that this is going to be a freakout-free vacay, so I’m starting my stopwatch now to see how long it is before she blows a gasket. Anyone care to place …

A feminist’s guide to raising boys

But having three sons has challenged everything Its always the things you think will be a doddle that end up causing most heartache.

Did not see that coming. How do you raise boys? My extremely authoritative sources for this article were: my friends; my children (I interviewed two of them, but the …
