Robin's Rundown: Tuesday June 19, 2012

What do you do when you can't get back to sleep? I shopped online overnight for light fixtures. It didn't make me sleepy. But I did buy a sconce. Ha! Speaking of wattage, it's time for you to rise and shine, my dear. Along the way we will bring you these stories:

Bring out your skimpy wear! Summer is this close to officially beginning and it comes with rapidly climbing temperatures for some of your fellow viewers.

But do we fit into our skimpy wear? Apparently, Americans aren't the only ones overweight. They put the numbers together showing there's a lot of junk in the world's trunk.

Talking in code? See if you think tapes of the jailhouse calls between George Zimmerman and his wife show they were trying to hide money from the judge. Even Zimmerman's attorney says it sounds bad, but says it's not the whole story.

One of the greatest baseball pitchers of all time is a free man. Roger Clemens got choked up after he was acquitted of lying to Congress about performance-enhancing drugs. So the looming question: Will the entire scandal keep him out of baseball's Hall of Fame?

You gotta hear the 911 call from a dude having a sandwich emergency!

A big day in the music biz: new CDs from Kenny Chesney and Justin Bieber. See if you feel like you want to shuck over the money for these.

You only have until NOON Eastern (9a PT) to get in on HLN's Daytime Emmy Awards sweepstakes! You could win a trip to see the show LIVE in Beverly Hills AND get a red carpet makeover! SHMANCY! ENTER HERE. Good luck!

Talk soon.
