Buff Body of the Week

He's a military rescue pilot... He's the heir to the British throne... And this week, not only is he rumored to be planning an elaborate engagement to his girlfriend of 7 years, Kate Middleton, but he's also my pick for Buff Body of the Week.

Ya know, it must be hard for a prince to keep his body in royal shape, what with access to world's finest restaurants and best chefs, in addition to having 24-hour room service at grand ma-ma's pad at Buckingham Palace. But I guess the notoriously bland cuisine of the British empire is what keeps his arms and pecs in beach-ready shape all year round.

Congratualtions, Prince William, on being our Buff Bod (and on the engagement)! I'll be looking for my invitation in the mail...

...But I won't be flying Spirit Air into Heathrow....

Now that the airline plans to charge travelers $45 for a carry-on bag, it may just be easier just to stay in town and enjoy a 'Date Night' my hard earned cash.

For two 20 dollar bills and a five-spot, here's how far both you and I can get on a 'Date Night' in DC:
  1. Buy two tickets to see the new movie, Date Night starring Tina Fey and Steve Carrell, plus purchase two regular cokes and a small popcorn.
  2. Purchase dinner for two at the reasonably priced new U Street eatery, Eatonville, which serves up Southern style comfort food in a trendy, relaxed environment (on weekends there's even live music).
  3. Play skee-ball (yes, roll the ball up that ramp, baby) at Old Dominion Brewhouse while enjoying $3 Absolut vodka drinks during Happy Hour.
Take that Spirit Air (and all other airlines who plan to follow suit)!
