The Queen Still Got It Despite Her Tough Year

Queen Elizabeth II has faced one of the most difficult years of her life.  In April, she lost her husband of 73 years, Prince Philip, just short of his 100th birthday. Her second son Prince Andrew is still facing legal woes even after exiting public life over his controversial friendship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. And her grandson, Prince Harry, allegedly still has a strained relationship with the British royal family after he and his wife, Meghan Markle, stepped back as senior members.  And then in the late fall she had several health setbacks, which stirred headlines. She has since been largely confined to Windsor Castle.  In the latest issue of PEOPLE Royals, out on Friday, the queen’s biographer Ingrid Seward told the outlet that “her ability to compartmentalize has been extremely helpful in her life” as she balances both her personal and public life.  “Fundamentally she puts things in a box and says ‘that can be dealt with on Thursday,’ for example,” Seward explained. “She won’t let things crowd in on her. She is mentally disciplined and that has helped her through these 70 years. It has enabled her to deal with all the things and not allow things to overwhelm her. It goes a long way towards explaining her ability to be able to still be working at this age.”  She is expected to be surrounded by her family during Christmas at Sandringham House in Norfolk. According to the outlet, she will stay there until after the anniversary of the February 6th death of her father, King George VI. It will be the first time in 73 years without Philip by her side.  “She will be missing his companionship deeply,” a palace insider told the outlet. “But she is a very stoic person.”  Another source told the outlet that her “religious faith” has been essential during such tough times.  “It feels to me, she can carry on for some time,” the insider added.
*********Of course she can!!! She’s got her eye on William Shatner… or maybe Dick Van Dyke (96)!!!!!
****Meanwhile, Phillip is in heaven with Farrah Fawcett!! “Take your time, darling!! Everything’s good up here!”
******Every night, Charles dreams of gently lowering a pillow over her face!!!
******Andrew is doing a lot of charitable work with the Girl Scouts!!
AND GOOD NEWS FOR HARRY!! They’re hiring at the Post Office!!

Britney Spears Slams Diane Sawyer For 2003 Interview

Britney Spears is calling out Diane Sawyer for conducting the 2003 interview that left her in tears.  She spoke up in a lengthy Instagram caption that has since been deleted in which she calls out Diane for coming to her home shortly after her breakup with Justin Timberlake.  While discussing the pleasure of being able to shop with her own cash for the first time in years, Spears, wrote via People, “I do love shopping though…who doesn’t??? Do we dare forget the Diane Sawyer interview in my apartment almost 20 years ago ??? What was with the ‘you’re in the wrong’ approach?? Geeze…and making me cry ???”  Spears, 40, revealed that after her “big breakup” with Timberlake, she “never spoke to anyone.”  “Something I never shared when I had that big break up years ago was that I couldn’t talk afterwards … I never spoke to anyone for a very long time …I was in shock,” Spears reportedly wrote.  “pretty lame of my dad and three men to show up at my door when I could hardly speak …two days later they put Diane Sawyer in my living room … they forced me to talk !!! I was a baby …I was almost 22 and didn’t understand but I f—ing know now !!! She said ‘a woman or a girl’ … I would like to say now ‘ma’am I’m a catholic slut!!! You wanna join me at a mass and I can serve your husband my certificate on shopping for anonymous players ???'” Spears continued.
*******Hey.. she doesn’t sound crazy at all!!
******It’s Diane Sawyer’s JOB to make people cry!!!
*******Is she broke yet???

Olivia Rodrigo Sings At The DMV

Olivia Rodrigo spent time at the Glendale Department of Motor Vehicles in California earlier this month recording a show for NPR’s Tiny Desk concert series.  The unusual gig location was a reference to Rodrigo’s biggest hit, “Drivers License,” which she performed at the DMV along with three of her other hits.  Her team reportedly paid $2,383 to use the DMV office after it closed to the public for the day.  Some of that money went to staffers who worked overtime to help make sure the concert went off without a hitch, according to TMZ.  DMV offices in California allow content creators to apply for special permits to film at their locations. However, filming must not interfere with a facility’s day-to-day operations.  The DMV has reportedly rejected numerous permit applications in the recent past, but were said to be thrilled by Rodrigo’s decision to film at one of their venues.  Video of the Tiny Desk concert has been posted to YouTube, where it has already been viewed more than 2 million times.  See the video HERE.
*******We were at the DMV last month, and they wanted $2,383 just to talk to us!!
********When she showed up to film, they went her home to get her birth certificate!! When she came back with that, they said, “Did we mention you need your SS card??”
********The video didn’t look that good.. she had to use the same cameraman who does drivers license photos!!

Caitlyn Jenner Banner Over Ripped Jeans

Caitlyn Jenner slammed the ritzy Beverly Hills Hotel, calling them “disgusting” after they refused to serve her for not complying with their dress code.  She was wearing ripped jeans when she showed up to the hotel’s restaurant, Polo Lounge.  “@bevhillshotel f–k your horrible service for not letting me have lunch with this tiny rip in my jeans. Shame on you. Disgusting,” she wrote on her Instagram Story on Monday.  She continued, “I have been a patron for decades. No longer.”  The jeans in question show a horizontal tear as part of the design, rather than an accidental tear.  “At the Polo Lounge, we encourage you to dress for the occasion, so we ask that you refrain from wearing casual hats, ripped denim, crop tops, nightwear, swimwear and men’s sleeveless shirts,” their website reads. “After 4pm, we do not permit shorts, flip-flops (including Birkenstocks) or sportswear (including tracksuits). Children under 10 are exempt.” Shortly after Jenner posted her complaint, she reposted a story from TMZ, circling the phrase, “Interesting it says ‘we encourage’ … so it doesn’t say it’s a mandatory dress code.”  She also claimed that the staff broke their no photo policy by allowing fans to take photos with her, yet they chose to follow their dress code.
********It wasn’t the rip.. it was the fact that her penis was hanging out through it!!

Man Finally Wins Lottery With The Same Numbers

A Michigan man said there was a good reason that the winning Mega Millions numbers seemed “familiar” to him — they were the same numbers he’s been using for years.  Jeffrey Phillips, of Washtenaw County, told Michigan Lottery officials the numbers on the Mega Millions ticket he bought from Polly’s Country Market in Chelsea were the same numbers he had been using every week for years.  “I play the Mega Millions game weekly and have been playing the same set of numbers for years,” Phillips said. “The Sunday after the drawing, I checked the winning numbers online and started writing them down. After the first few numbers, I thought: ‘Wait a minute, these numbers are familiar.'”  The numbers, 07-27-37-42-59, earned Phillips a $2 million jackpot in the Nov. 26 drawing.  “When I realized what I had won, I called for my wife to have her come look the ticket over. We were both in shock, and it still hasn’t sunk in yet,” he said.
********He’s played the numbers for years… so he went back and calculated: he spent $2.5 million to win a $2.0 million jackpot!!
TOPIC: Do YOU pick your lottery numbers?? Or do you let the machine do it??

Venomous Snake Pulled From Christmas Tree

A wildlife rescuer in South Africa was summoned to a home in which a family found a venomous snake slithering in the branches of their Christmas tree.  Gerrie Heyns, owner of reptile rescue service Snake Lives Matter, said he was called to a home near McGregor, in the Western Cape area, when the residents spotted a venomous boomslang in the tree.  Heyns said he arrived at the home 90 minutes later to find the snake still slithering in the branches.  Heyns posted a video to his business’ YouTube channel showing how he captured the snake with a pair of specialized tongs.  The rescuer later posted a second video showing the serpent being released into the wild.  Heyns said the incident marked the first time he had been called to remove a snake from a Christmas tree.  See the video HERE.

Life Sized Gingerbread House

A Utah home is drawing the attention of passers-by — as well as Internet users — after being decorated to resemble a life-sized gingerbread house.  Virginia Hoffman said she realized a few years ago that her red brick home in the Yalecrest area of Salt Lake City bears a striking resemblance to the Christmas season treats, so she started thinking of ways to decorate the home as a gigantic gingerbread house.  Hoffman enlisted the help of her family to make her vision a reality.  “I told my family about it and luckily they didn’t think I was crazy. And so we painted these gumballs in the kitchen over Thanksgiving of 2019, and then my daughter and son-in-law helped me figure out how to attach them to the house,” Hoffman told KSTU-TV.  Hoffman, an interior designer by trade, and her husband, a professional artist, added vanilla wafers into the mix for this year’s decoration.  “We made that out of foam, insulation, and then my husband melted out the squares with a soldering iron, and I painted them and got the exact right colors to look like the cookies,” Hoffman said.  The yearly décor has proven popular with neighbors, and this year’s version went viral online after Hoffman’s daughter shared photos on Reddit.

Naked Santa Run

More than 40 runners donned Santa hats and swimsuits to participate in Budapest’s annual Santa Claus Jogging event.  The annual event, also known as the “Naked Santa Run” and the “Santa Speedo Run,” was canceled due to the pandemic in 2020, but it returned to the Hungarian capital Sunday with more than 40 participants.  The runners gathered outside of the Go Active fitness center and began their swimsuit-clad run at 2pm.  The run covered a distance of about 2.2 miles and ended back at the gym. Participants were given a 50% discount at the local Szechenyi spa to warm up from the frigid run.  The 18th annual Santa Claus Jogging event raised money for charity group Better Childhood.  See the video HERE.

8 Of the Most Memorably Bad And Funny Office Holiday Party Stories



  1. The Employee Who Passed Out In Her Boss’s Arms

“When I was 25 or so, I got so drunk at my work’s Christmas party that I fell off a stool, hit my head and passed out. I came to crying outside in my boss’s arms while HIS boss called me an Uber home.” — a technology professional in Washington, D.C.


  1. The Vomit-Filled Hijinks At The Bosses’ House

“Not my holiday party, but my husband’s. His married bosses had it at their house for many, many years. One co-worker showed up two hours late completely wasted, missed dinner, was in the entryway for five minutes before he puked everywhere. Couch, floor, walls, TV, lamp, etc., all covered in it.”

“His date was mortified, got a cab for them, and they left a whole 20 minutes after they arrived. You think that would have been enough to stop having the holiday party at [the bosses’] house, but no. The very next year they have it there again and a different co-worker gets wasted and tries to hook up with their kid’s nanny in their 4-year-old’s bed. The kid was not home that night, thankfully.”

“A cab gets called to take them home and, from what we were told, they were making out in the back of the cab when one of them got sick mid make-out ― like, in the other’s mouth. Ick. Unfortunately, my husband has since moved on to a new company and now his holiday parties are lame in comparison.” — Redditor Vanessss4


  1. The Co-worker Who Saw A Sight They Would Rather Forget

“Worst I’ve seen? Two drunk executives who each unzipped his fly, took out his penis, and lay it on the table to measure whose was actually bigger. Eye bleach needed.” — Redditor Microwavepizza


  1. The Staff Trapped In A Zoom Party For Three And A Half Hours

“One of the primary managers in this company likes to cook, so what they decided to do was get everyone into a Zoom call and he sent them a list of ingredients. He cooked while we were supposed to follow along.”

“It was supposed to be a social event with a cooking lesson. What went wrong was the guy really is not HGTV material. He didn’t plan well in terms of his timing, and so everything was running really late. People were getting tired: ‘Well, how do we do this? When do we do this?’ Everyone was really polite about it, but you could tell they were getting frustrated. They were picturing a cooking demonstration they see on TV.”

“It was getting to the point where people were dropping off the call because they were tired of waiting to eat. It should’ve been more well-planned, or maybe somebody else helping him. This guy was doing this all by himself in his kitchen. I think it was three and a half hours.” — Phyllis, a human resources consultant


  1. The Office Party That Ended With Chest Hair On Fire

“I used to own a bar in D.C. We had a company rent out a space for a holiday party one year. They were getting pretty smashed — it was an open bar — and we suddenly started smelling smoke. I sent a waitress to find out what was going on and she reported that the men in the party were having a hairy chest contest and the hairiest one lit his chest hair on fire, apparently on a dare. Needless to say, we threw a few folks out.” — Mary Abbajay, president of the leadership development consultancy Careerstone Group


  1. The Boss Who Ignored Social Cues

“One time the boss had been drinking too much at the holiday happy hour. There was an activity where the team was going around the table and sharing stories from their past. One of the employees stated they were a cheerleader in grade school during their story. The boss asked them to do a cheer and the employee didn’t want to. The boss kept insisting and the employee kept refusing. It was really awkward. The team didn’t know whether to laugh or change the subject.” — Gabrielle Woody, a university recruiter for a financial software company


  1. The Holiday Party That Broke An Employee’s Trust

“Some dude is ridiculously drunk; I do not know this guy. I make the decision to walk him out because he was being unruly. He decided to stick his whole hand up my skirt and grab my butt. I gave up being civil and gripped this dude by the back of his collar and physically dragged him to the exit when one of the national account managers stopped me and asked me what I was doing.”

“I explained the guy was too drunk and needed to go home. He said the guy used to intern there and he was ‘OK.’ I then explained he physically assaulted me, and for that alone, he’s out. This manager told me to my face that it was fine and this dude could stay. I looked at him incredulously.”

“This became a thing at the office … I was thrown into the category of ‘having attitude’ and not being liked for the rest of my time with the company. And the icing on the cake, they made this dude come in and apologize to me after I said I never wanted to see him again because he made me uncomfortable, and that somehow made me ungrateful. This dude also applied to every job opening we had and because I worked the front desk, I had to see him come into the office often and I had to sit there in discomfort. Not to mention the multiple times he tried to connect with me on LinkedIn.”

“I definitely lost all trust in the people I worked with from that moment on and they continued to let me down until I resigned.” — Arianne Young, virtual assistant


  1. The Party So Over The Top It’s Just Too Much

“Gawker (and later Gizmodo) was famous for doing wild and crazy holiday parties. This is the tip of the iceberg. There was a guy dressed as a 19th-century caroler in a pig mask standing on the buffet table playing a fiddle. There was a bubble bath in one of the rooms. I think there were some people in pink poodle fur suits as well. I was pretty uncomfortable with the whole situation, if the photo doesn’t give it away.” — Patrick Hogan, journalist
