1. Semi-famous couple of the day: Alyssa Campanella, the new Miss USA, is dating "Tudors" star Torrance Coombs.

2. Useful house arrest of the day: Lindsay Lohan shot a commercial for Beezid.com, an online auction site, while confined to her home by the rulings from the state of California.


3. Dating site of the day: New York magazine's HowAboutWe section, where singles can suggest fun dating ideas and you pick and choose from among the applicants. Sorry, kids, it's New York-specific right now.

4. Tom Spanx of the day: Tom Hanks talking about Man Spanx? Yes, please!

5. Freudian sex story of the day: The trailer for David Cronenberg's "Dangerous Methods" has a hottie Sigmund (Michael Fassbender) boning a "Nell"-ish Keira Knightley.
