A few nights ago, I woke up to the sensation of a mysterious furry critter running down my leg. Texas may be overrun by

mutant insects and rodents, but this (fortunately?) was a first for me.

Not so fortunately, all of my roommates grew up in the deep wilderness of places like Siberia and Alaska (who knows really?) So, no one found this concerning except for me.

Being a modern woman, I reacted by first cowering in fear for several hours but THEN I took matters into my own hands!

Perez looks a little thin, no? He’s been on a health kick for the past couple of years, dropping from an unhealthy weight to exercise and smart eating. And over the course of a couple years, he has transformed himself. However, this picture definitely makes him look a little skinny skinny. Every Hollywood socialite’s dream, right?!

Being healthy is what counts, Perez. Keep that in mind!
