Have you ever gone out all night with the intention to party with friends and get balls to walls madness shit-faced drunk? Or white boy wasted, as the song says on MTV?

I have, and let me tell you it’s not always a fun thing the next morning, now I know what you are thing “oh Moussie, did you have a coyote ugly moment”, well the answer is NO!!! I didn’t. Though waking up the next morning I wish that I did. The night was a constant blur of club after club, and slags were everywhere, on the floor, on the wall, on my crotch. Major slagfest. Sounds good right? WRONG!!!

I met this one guy and he was of a hulking manner, I thought nothing of it and went home with him. At this point I’m having milkd black outs and I vaguely remember him putting on what appeared to be a red track suit and a cottony beard. Then I blacked out. When I came to I had a brown costume on and hooves. Then I blacked out again, and then I distinctly remember hearing him say “Santa’s gonna take you to his north pole, anyways cut to me the next morning handcuffed to a radiator with a sore ass, and a nasty flavor in my mouth, makes me think of GaGa when she sings “I want your whiskey mouth, all over my blond south”.

The one thing that surprises me most is I remember him smacking my ass and yelling “STUPID DEER, DEER DON’T TALK!!!” Ever since then I’ve always had a nervous twitch whenever I see the Macy’s store Santa

Wow, kinda harsh, don’t you think?

Dating and social network site BeautifulPeople.com has axed some 5,000 members following complaints that they had gained weight. The members were singled out after posting pictures of themselves that reportedly showed they had put on pounds over the holiday period. The site allows entry to new members only if existing members vote them as sufficiently attractive to warrant it.

The US, the UK, and Canada topped the list of excluded members, The site has always been unrepentant about its selection process, calling itself “the largest network of attractive people in the world”.

The move was reportedly prompted by members themselves, who police the membership of the site to maintain a high – if highly subjective – standard of attractiveness.

“As a business, we mourn the loss of any member, but the fact remains that our members demand the high standard of beauty be upheld,” said site founder Robert Hintze.

Letting fatties roam the site is a direct threat to our business model and the very concept for which BeautifulPeople.com was founded.”

Now, I thought the city where I was born and raised…hadn’t “caught the crazy”, but it appears it arrived….and well, I am impressed! (thanks to the hubby for finding this news story!)

A UK priest has defended his comments that it is acceptable to steal from large companies.

Tim Jones, parish priest of St Lawrence and St Hilda, told his congregation in York, northern England: “My advice, as a Christian priest, is to shoplift.”

Jones, who according to the church Web site previously worked in Corinth, Mississippi, made his comments about what he regarded as acceptable behavior by those in need when they were desperate.

In a transcript of his sermon published in the local newspaper, “The Press,” Jones said: “I do not offer such advice because I think that stealing is a good thing, or because I think it is harmless, for it is neither.

“I would ask that they do not steal from small family businesses, but from large national businesses, knowing that the costs are ultimately passed on to the rest of us in the form of higher prices.”

Jones told CNN affiliate ITN Monday that his advice was directed at those with nothing and who had exhausted all other legal avenues to survive, such as state benefits.

While it was never right to shoplift, Jones said, it was the most acceptable alternative for those in desperate need compared with prostitution, burglary or other criminal offenses.

The Web site for St Hilda’s states that Jones has served as a prison chaplain and that his interests include international justice and fair trade issues.

“I would say to those people that are outraged: Compare how much you are spending on yourself this Christmas compared to how much you have given to people in desperate situations,” Jones told ITN.

In his sermon Sunday Jones called on anyone planning to steal not to take more than they need for longer than they need, saying that he offered his advice with a heavy heart. He added that his advocacy of shoplifting was a “grim indictment” of society and a plea for help for the most vulnerable.

But Jones’ church bosses failed to back his call. In a statement on the Web site for the Diocese of York Tuesday, Richard Seed, Archdeacon of York said: “The Church of England does not advise anyone to shoplift, or break the law in any way.

“Fr Tim Jones is raising important issues about the difficulties people face when benefits are not forthcoming, but shoplifting is not the way to overcome these difficulties.

“There are many organizations and charities working with people in need, and the Citizens’ Advice Bureau is a good first place to call.”

Just in time to kick-off of the holiday shopping season, HRC is releasing our annual buyers guide that rates hundreds of popular American brands on their businesses’ treatment of LGBT employees. “Buying for Equality 2010” divides businesses and their consumer products into red, yellow and green categories based on their score on the HRC Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index, a nationally recognized benchmark of LGBT inclusion. The guide — previous versions of which have been viewed and downloaded more than 300,000 times — is available for download and viewing online at www.hrc.org/buyersguide.

The LGBT community is estimated to have $712 billion in buying power this year, according to research by Witeck-Combs Communications and MarketResearch.com. A recent study by Witeck-Combs/Harris Interactive also found that 78 percent of LGBT people are extremely or very likely to consider brands that are known to provide equal workplace benefits for their employees, including LGBT workers.

Said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese:

“Congress is currently considering the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, a critical piece of workplace legislation that will include our community. Until all LGBT Americans get fair treatment in the workplace, we must support businesses that support us. By purchasing products from businesses that support LGBT equality, shoppers send a clear message to businesses that their support, or lack thereof, will directly impact their bottom line.”

“From determining which car to purchase, to the right holiday gift for the kids, to everyday grocery shopping, this guide harnesses the power of equality-minded shoppers. At this moment it’s critically important that businesses hear that their customers support businesses that support us,” said Solmonese.

Fair-minded consumers are also encouraged to write to businesses to either thank them for their support, ask them revise their policies, or encourage them to participate in the Corporate Equality Index. More information can be found at www.hrc.org/consumeradvocacy.
