Either Sheet or Get Off the Air!

★ Ah, Mr Bond, we’ve been expecting you:  Daniel Craig will reportedly return for James Bond 25. It had been widely accepted but never officially confirmed that the most recent actor to play Bond – Daniel Craig – wouldn’t be making a return to the film series after earlier comments suggested he was completely over being a part of the franchise. Now sources inside the ‘Bond Offices’ say Craig is ready to return.  Adele is also rumoured to be making a comeback for the upcoming 25th James Bond release, following her work with the theme song from ‘Skyfall’.  It should be noted that at this point nothing has been confirmed.
(“Good luck out there in the field… And please return the equipment in one piece.”)

★ ‘The Late Late Show’ host James Corden, 38, and his wife Julia Carey are expecting baby number three. James and Julia married in 2012 and have a son Max, 6, and a daughter Carey, 2, together.  Corden is widely expected to host 60th Grammy Awards Ceremony in January 2018.
(It looks like the ‘Carpool’ is about to get a little more crowded!)
★ David and Victoria Beckham will use recycled waste water in their new swimming pool, to avoid using chemically treated liquid. The couple decided to go that way after learning that not treating water chemically is a better choice for the environment.
(You want to recycle waste water?  Just invite the neighborhood kids over for a swim!)

★ Ashton Kutcher is blasting editors at a U.S. tabloid for publishing an inaccurate article about him.  Kutcher is hitting back at the suggestions he’s cheating on his wife, explaining the girl in the photos is a relative. “You should have heard how upset (my wife) Mila (Kunis) was that I spent the day with our cousin,” he tweeted alongside a picture of the article. “Sorry aunt Jodie these magazines lack integrity.”
★ Sir Patrick Stewart says he contemplates death every day as he looks ahead to his 77th birthday on Thursday.  The ‘X-Men’ actor admits advancing in age makes him reflect on passing away much more often. Stewart lost his good friend Leonard Nimoy in 2015 and his other actor pal Alan Rickman died last year.  He confesses the string of celebrity deaths over the past few years have taken a toll on his psyche.
(On the other hand, his wife is 38, so it’s not like he doesn’t have a reason to stick around!)

One of the popular methods people are using these days to try to lose weight is ‘Alternative-Day Fasting’.  Rather than dieting, where it seems like you will spend every day for the rest of your life  poking at oatmeal and steamed broccoli, an Alternative-Day Fasting diet sees you eat very little one day, but the next day you can eat all the burritos and burgers you want.  But the question is: Does this work?   A recently published study suggests that this type of fasting diet may help people lose weight, but it’s not more effective than traditional calorie restrictive dieting. During the year-long study, participants were asked to either follow an ADF plan or restrict daily calories.  After one year, both the ADF group and the calorie-counting group had lost about 13 pounds. The researchers reported that more members of the ADF group dropped out of the study than restricted-calorie participants. Those following an ADF plan felt it was too difficult and not sustainable for them.  Additionally, the researchers noted that most people in the ADF group ate more than their limit on fasting days (500 calories) and ate less than their allotment on feasting days (2,500 calories).  Scientists conclude that although an ADF diet may be effective, most are not be able to follow it for a sufficient length of time.  There are other fasting diets which require participants to ‘fast’ for only two days per week, or to truly fast for 16 hours per day.
(The problem is when you are invited to Mom’s place on a ‘fasting day’.  That’s never gonna fly!)
(I knew there must be an alternative to alternative-day fasting!)

Here are some obscure words for everyday feelings and emotions:
• CROOCHIE-PROOCHLES: the feeling of discomfort or fidgetiness that comes from sitting in a cramped position (like, say, on an airplane).
• NIKHEDONIA: The feeling of excitement or elation that comes from anticipating success. You’re playing a game, and you suddenly realize that you’ve got it in the bag. Or you’re watching your favorite team play and, after a close-fought match, you see that they’re surely going to win. (Or on the rare occasion that you know you are going to win an argument with your spouse…)
• SHIVVINESS: The feeling of discomfort that comes from wearing new underwear or another article of clothing that doesn’t feel quite right.  (This word needs to be more widely known!)
• PRESQUE-VU: That sensation of forgetting or not being able to remember something, but feeling that you could remember it any minute. (The wheels are turning…I hate that!)
• GWENDERS: That tingling feeling you get in your fingers when they’re cold.
• MISSLIENESS: The feeling of solitariness that comes from missing something or someone you love. (Now define ‘solitariness’…)
• CRAPULENCE: When the word hangover just won’t do justice, there’s crapulence. A feeling of “sickness or indisposition resulting from excess in drinking or eating.” (Oh. Sunday morning.)
• HUCKMUCK: The confusion that comes from things not being in their right place—like when you’ve moved everything around while you’re cleaning your house. (Or you know, like after the kids have hosted a playdate!)
• EUNEIROPHRENIA and MALNEIROPHRENIA: Euneirophrenia is the feeling of contentment that comes from waking up from a pleasant dream, while malneirophrenia is the feeling of unease or unhappiness that comes from waking up from a nightmare.  (On the other hand, they can be the opposite when you realize that what you dreamed never happened!)

World population crossed the 5-billion mark on this day in 1987. We reached the 6-billion mark sometime in 1999 and 7-billion in 2011. Current world population? Over 7.5 billion. (and I still can’t get a date for my niece’s wedding…) According to current projections, the global population will reach 8 billion by 2024.
