Living in a rented closetA Florida man who lost his job as an architect is making ends meet by living in a rented closet. Sergio Santos could no longer afford the $500 room he was renting, so he offered $150 to a landlord for a 5-by-14-foot storage closet. Using his architectural skills, Santos built a loft bed in his new “apartment,” and squeezed in a TV and small microwave. “I love it,” Santos says. “I am happy paying only $150 a month.”

The hotel heiress and current boyfriend Doug Reinhardt were making out during a party on the yacht, says a source, when Hilton “got so worked up she dragged Doug below deck so they could have some private time.” Another guest discovered the amorous couple in flagrante delicto in a bathroom, and alerted the captain, who promptly ordered the panting lovers off the vessel “for unsociable behavior.” 

Hostage standoff ends well British police believed they had a hostage standoff on their hands when they received an emergency call in which the caller could be heard whimpering and a man shouting, “Come out or else! I’m warning you!” The line then went dead. When police called back, they reached a woman who reported that Bailey, her 14-month-old golden retriever, had stolen her cordless phone and, pursued by her angry husband, taken it to his hiding place behind the garden shed, where he gnawed on its keypad.
