I Imagine the Fight Would be Something Like West Side Story

So, Olympic figure skaters Johnny (I love Gaga) Weir and Evan (Dancing with the Stars) Lysacek are in a verbal battle that is heating up as we speak.

According to reports, the pair, who have (allegedly) been at odds since Johnny roomed with Evan’s (alleged) GF – ice-dancer Tanith Belbin – at the Vancouver Olympics, are now fighting over comments Evan made to the Indianapolis Star this week.

Basically, from what I’ve read, Evan insinuated that Johnny wasn’t good enough to join others for Smucker’s Stars on Ice, and that he shouldn’t have whined about not being chosen. To which, Johnny replied “We are at war. My claws are out.” According to People.com, Johnny also called Evan a “slore,” a mix between a slut and a whore. Love. It.

Sail Away, Sail Away

Someone in Boston really wants me to go sailing this weekend. I opened up my inbox this morning to find not one, but TWO e-mails telling me that sailing in the Harbor is the new thing to do, and I can get it at a discount!

First off, the Boston Sailing Center will be hosting an Open House Saturday, May 1 and Sunday, May 2 at it’s Lewis Wharf location. Free sailboat rides will be offered, as well as discounted memberships and lessons.

In addition, today’s Boston Groupon is a 50 percent discount on either sailing lessons or a leisure cruise with Courageous Sailing of Charlestown. For $95, you and two friends can either learn to sail or take a calm two-hour coast in the Boston Harbor. While this sounds really lovely, I wonder why three people would want to take what seems to me like a romantic cruise on a sailboat…I mean, I can think of some reasons, but it’s not anything I would want to participate in.

Anyway, take advantage of the beautiful weekend (and hopefully future beautiful weather ahead of us). Bon Voyage!

The Top 5 Contributions The Hills has Made to Society

As we began the final season of The Hills Tuesday night, I couldn’t help but let my mind wander back to the days at 41 Orkney Road watching the first season of Laguna Beach. A lot has happened in those six short years: I am actually considered an adult now, the economy went from great to bad, Michael Phelps has won countless gold medals, the country elected its first black president, and Lindsay Lohan has been to rehab a total of 77 times.

With all this change, I can’t help but wonder what this brand of reality television has taught us. Let the countdown begin:

1.True friends (or frenemies, or acquaintances lumped together for the sole purpose of the show) know what you’re thinking. All those silences between Audrina and Lauren (and Audrina and Lo, and Audrina and Justin Bobby) are really just signs that these people are so close, they don’t need words. Their bonds are so strong, that sentences don’t need to be finished. So deep.
