Alanis Regales Dalai Lama, Followers, With Rousing Rendition
of "Too Hot to Hold"
Pop superstar Alanis Morrissette wowed the Dalai Lama and a crowd of 9,000
fans at the Ottawa Civic Centre last week with her 1991 hit single Too Hot
to Hold. "I draw inspiration in all of my work from your stoic resolve,"
gushed Alanis to the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, before bringing the house
down with a medley that melded Too Hot with her dance club smash Feel
Your Love, bellowing "give it to me like I'd like to give it to you"
at the top of her lungs to his Holiness as he watched with bemusement and the
crowd chanted along.
Responded the Dalai Lama, to a wave of applause: "As says Alanis, "you
gotta go for gold.""
Friendship Upgraded to Dump-Taking at Each Other's Place
The bond between University of Lethbridge third-year students Derek Hossenpfeffer
and Joey Evington was inadvertently strengthened when Hossenpfeffer took a dump
at his friend's apartment earlier this week. "I said to him, "dude,
did you like drop off the kids at the pool? It totally stinks in here,""
recounted Evington, "and he was like, "uh , yeah. I really had to,
man. It was those microwave burritos.""
Hossenpfeffer, a third year biology student, explained his decision to move
his bowels at his friend's apartment. "You know, Joey and I have been
buddies for a couple of years now, but I really think our friendship has reached
a new plateau-when you feel comfortable enough to take a dump at your friend's
place, you know that you're pretty tight. I don't have too many friends where
I'd feel secure enough to take a dump at their place."
Evington has no immediate plans to take a dump at his friend Derek's place,
but said he foresees it happening in the near future.
Happy Leafs Elimination Day, Canada!
