Gin and TopicsWe have this internal joke about the snowblower David Jackson bought a few weeks ago.

He moaned and complained about how much it cost (I mean, he lives in Chicago…it’s a great investment).

So we helped him see the value of it by showing him how much he’d spend if he still had the kid down the street shoveling every time it snows.

He’s down to $200 left to make up his investment—and it’s supposed to snow three times next week.

He just needs snow eight more times this season and it’s paid off!

We joke because this winter has been absolutely relentless.

I LOVE winter and even I’m over it.

The only thing we can do at this point is laugh about it.

And, while you also continue to freeze your butt off (I mean, it snowed in Vegas!), I give you Gin and Topics for some entertainment value.

Gin and Topics for Your Viewing Pleasure

This week’s videos are courtesy of Susan Cellura, Paula Kiger, and yours truly.

4. Deputies Rescue Puppies From ‘Horrible Conditions’ In Freezing Weather. This is worth watching just to see those sweet puppy faces! Almost makes me want one. Almost.

3. Jane Fonda & Lily Tomlin Answer the Web’s Most Searched Questions. I love the two of these women together. And Jane Fonda tells you her beauty secret. It’s worth watching just for that.

2. Portia de Rossi Reveals Her 61st Birthday Present for Ellen. Let’s just say her 60th birthday gift was far more significant.

1. Chris Pratt and Will Arnett Narrate a Makeup Tutorial. I love it when guys narrate the crazy things we women do for beauty. And this is no exception. So funny!
