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).

Weekends and other shifts that the rest of the staff have deemed "undesirable."
Gawker - Today's gossip is tomorrow's news.
DListed - Celeb gossip by the wicked Michael K.
Passive Aggressive Notes - Self explanatory
Jezebel - Celebrity, sex, fashion for women. Without airbrushing.
XOJane - Remember Sassy magazine? This is the brainchild of the editor.
Dictionary.com - Because there, their, and they're are really, really tricky. Apparently.
So, that happened. And it's going to keep happening? Maybe? It's all really unclear.
Chester surprised the crowd at KROQ's Weenie Roast in LA by singing for STP during their set.
Moving quickly to dispel any rumors, Stone Temple Pilots’ Dean DeLeo also made clear that his crew understands Linkin Park is Bennington’s first band. "Chester has a one-of-a-kind voice that we’ve admired for a long time," said Dean DeLeo in the statement. "We know Linkin Park will always be his priority, but we thought it would be cool to try something together. We managed to find the time to record a song and we’re all really happy with the result."
They've recorded a song. Just one. (A free download of the new single is available at www.stonetemplepilots.com.)Are they going to do a whole album? Are they going on tour? WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? (Rolling Stone)
I've been following this insane story all weekend long. A high school senior in Florida could end up in jail and on the sex offender list because her girlfriend's parents have a major case of homophobia.
Kaitlyn’s girlfriend’s parents are pressing charges because they are against the same-sex relationship, even though their daughter has stated that this is a consensual relationship. The two girls began dating while Kaitlyn was 17 but her girlfriend’s parents blamed Kaitlyn for their daughter’s homosexuality. They waited until after Kaitlyn turned 18 and went to the police to have charges brought against her.
People have made the argument that if it was a straight couple with the boy being 3 years and 7 months older than the girl (that's the age difference between Kaitlyn and her former girlfriend), we'd all be calling for his head on a stick. I'm gonna go ahead and call BS on that.
I mean, I really like Oasis (and I get made fun of for it, too), but British people love Oasis so much that the top 5 songs on the Greatest Britpop Anthem Of All Time list are Oasis songs. IMO, they got the first two mixed up. "Don't Look Back In Anger" is the more superior of those two songs. (NME)
1. Oasis - "Live Forever"
2. Oasis - "Don't Look Back In Anger"
3. Oasis - "Supersonic"
4. Oasis - "Cigarettes & Alcohol"
5. Oasis - "Wonderwall"
6. Pulp - "Common People"
7. Suede - "Animal Nitrate"
8. Blur - "Girls & Boys"
9. Suede - "Trash"
10. Blur - "The Universal"

So, this happened. A guy in Taiwan was pissed that his girlfriend was nagging him about hanging out at home and doing nothing other than getting day drunk, so he decided to get revenge by cutting off his own penis.
The argument abruptly ended after the man grabbed a pair of household scissors and went into the bathroom to snip off his sex organ.
Then, as the horrified girlfriend watched on, he flushed his severed member down the toilet.
The woman managed to get the critically injured man to the hospital just before he bled out.
Though doctors were unable to do much for the man besides stop the bleeding, they say he should have no problem urinating out of the three centimeters (1.1") that remained.
That's... not how revenge works. I'm not even sure how his penis got involved in the whole ordeal. (Gawker)
And I loved it! Star Trek Into Darkness was fantastic.
It was so good that I had to pose for an awkward photo with this thing on my way out of the theater.
The cast was amazing, and Benedict Cumberbun Cumberbatch is possibly the best villain ever. John Cho shines as Sulu. Really, he's a total badass when given the chance. And Zachary Quinto is HILARIOUS as Spock. And dammit, he almost made me cry at one point.
Some people in the screening I saw were a little miffed that JJ Abrams let the story veer away from canon, but that didn't bother me. I watched Next Generation and some of the original Star Trek enough as a kid to recognize cameo appearances and get some of the inside jokes, but not enough to know that OMG JJ ABRAMS CHANGED SOMETHING. So for me, it worked.
Seriously, go see it. It's got palm sweating, anxiety ridden moments... laughs... sentimentality... Such a good movie.
