Web Exclusive

(CBS/CNN) - After enduring several surgeries and threats to his life, Jason Mortensen was rewarded with something most people only experience once -- true love at first sight.
Following his most recent surgery, Mortensen awoke in a loopy state due to the anesthesia.
His wife, Candice, was recording as he woke up.  While Candice was focused on making sure her husband ate crackers, her husband was focused on hitting on the strange woman in front of him.

"Did the doctor send you? Man, you are eye candy. How long have we been married," says Jason Mortensen. "A long time," says Candice. "Oh my God, I hit the jackpot," replied Jason.
The video ended up on YouTube and so far has had over 4 million hits.

It may be early to start thinking holiday shopping, but one retailer already has a hot toy list this year with a little twist. Wal-mart used kids to help put together this year's top twenty list.
About a thousand boys and girls from 18 months to 10 years old spend a weekend in Dallas playing with toys. So what did they like? A new robotic pet furby, a Barbie dream house play set and toys tied to TV shows. 

Clint Eastwood and his wife Dina have apparently separated.  The Monterey County Herald reports Dina filed papers there, and is asking for shared custody of their teenage daughter.
