kristina and karissa…the new olsens?

Move on over Mary-Kate and Ashley…there are new twins in town and they’re really…orange.  And they want to be Hugh Hefner’s girlfriends.  Yes, girlfriends is plural. Errr…weird?

Tragically, Hef’s relationship with primary gf Holly Madison is over.  She wanted marriage and babies, but he lacked the sperm count.  I’m not making that up.  He is, after all, older than John McCain.  He’s 82. Wowie.

So, obviously heartbroken that Holly has moved on to more fertile pastures, Hef has been babysitting hanging out with the 19-year-old twins.  I mean, maybe he just wants to be a grandfatherly figure in their lives?  No.  How does he feel about them?  Does he, ya know, like LIKE them? Like passing-notes-check-yes-or-no like them?

“They very much want to be girlfriends and now under the present circumstance, they probably will become my girlfriends.”

Ahh, true love.

wonder if the olsens had trouble…

I’ve written before about how the college admissions process mystifies me. I also don’t often understand employment decisions, or acceptances into all sorts of programs (Teach For America, for instance). In each situation, someone has to make a decision based on relatively little information, and they must choose from among many, many applicants or candidates. It’s always sort of a fluke. It’s a hard job, and I certainly wouldn’t want to do it.

I found this article in today’s New York Times very interesting. Called “Is There a Better Half,” it talks about the unique challenges that twins and triplets face when applying to college. On top of considering whether or not they want to be together, or at least geographically close, they also have to consider how being a twin or a triplet will affect their applications when applying to the same school:

“Other people were applying to Harvard from our school,” Olivia [one of a set of triplets] explains, “and it’s not like Harvard was going to take five people. Sometimes it only takes one or two. I knew colleges place this huge emphasis on geographical diversity. So were they really going to take two people from the exact same household?”

Eek. Applying to college is hard enough as it is; I wouldn’t want any other factors complicating the process. (Thing about the agony that the Gosselins will go through!) Take a look at the article, then grab a frosty beverage and head outside, as I plan to do riiiiiight now.
