What I Do, Fun-wise: The internet is my playground. (Thank you, Al Gore.) I spend a lot of time on it, blogging, reading news/gossip sites, chatting with people, what-have-you. I also make a lot of unnecessary trips to Target. Not sure if that counts as fun, but it seems to take up a lot of my time... And I foster dogs for a rescue organization (RED Collar Rescue).

The balls on this guy.
Professional squatter Robert Carr of Ohio went into a family's home while they were away at a funeral, got rid of their stuff, changed the locks, and declared that the home was now his.
He claims the family abandoned the house and gave up their right to it.
There's a happy ending for the family, though. (Er... happy-ish?)
It seems Carr's squatting shenanigans finally caught up with him. He was arrested today on three counts of breaking and entering and three counts of theft, and is currently squatting in jail in lieu of a $40,000 bond.
Using the word "chase" pretty lightly here. We've got drunk driving, red light running, police car ramming, excessive horn honking, and loud music playing. What was this chick thinking? (Jalopnik)
I came across this in the comment section of an article on Cosmopolitan, "11 Things You Should Never Say To A Fat Girl". (Great article. Highly recommend.)
Someone's sleeping on the sofa tonight...
I'm irrationally annoyed that some of my favorite names are on the list. My non-existant little girl was going to be Zoe! You can't use Zoe, it's mine! (See? Told you it was irrational.)
Here's a look at the top 100 baby names from babycenter.com:
What's that, you wanted to see the newest animated Disney flick 'Frozen'? HAHAHAHA, too bad. Instead, you get to see boobs, bush, and a flash of peen. YOU'RE WELCOME.
Seriously, that happened at a movie theater recently. They had technical difficulties and tried to play a filler cartoon, but instead ended up showing the red band trailer for Lars Von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac' starring Shia LaBeouf, Christian Slater, Stellan Skarsgård, and Uma Thurman.
The trailer is so, so raunchy... no way am I posting it here. But I will send you to see it on Vimeo. It is so NSFW. You have been warned.
Those poor kids are scarred for life...
These guys. Sebastian, Luke, and Dingy that cat. (That's Dingy like dirty, not like the boat.)
This gif of Keanu smiling. It gives me so many warm fuzzies.
That we don't live in Panem. F' that sh*t.
Lorde's song 'Buzzcut Season'. I've listened to it more times than I can count. It puts me in a good headspace.
I got hitched this year. We ran off to Hawaii and surprised everyone, and I'm thankful it happened. My dude is awesome.
There's a ton more, but I'll end it there, because now I'm just starting to brag.
Have a great Thanksgiving! xoxo
This story is so sad. If you're sensitive to heading about abuse against children, avert your eyes.
According to the BBC, the 36-year-old Welsh musician (Ian Watkins) pleaded guilty to "three counts of sexual assault involving children and six involving taking, making or possessing indecent images of children and one of possessing an extreme pornographic image involving a sex act on an animal."
Two women were also charged for providing him with children to abuse, including their own.
One of the two women was the mother of an 11-month-old boy whom Watkins admitted he attempted to rape.
"This investigation has uncovered the most shocking and harrowing child abuse evidence I have ever seen," South Wales Police rep Peter Doyle said. "There is no doubt in my mind that Ian Watkins exploited his celebrity status in order to abuse young children."
Lostprophets guitarist Lee Gaze showed his relief on Twitter.
That was over quick. Thank fuck.— LeeGaze (@streeettrash) November 26, 2013
