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).
My Motto: "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It's not." - Dr. Suess, 'The Lorax'
My Anti-Motto: It is what it is.
The First Star I Ever Had A Crush On: Michael Jackson or Boy George. Not sure which came first.
My "celebs to make out with" list: Keanu Reeves, Kal Penn, James McAvoy, Gale Harold, Jacoby Shaddix (sorry to Jacoby's wife!)
The Last Song Played On My iTunes: "Devil" by Say Hi

Here's something I didn't know about 30 Seconds to Mars:
Despite selling 3 million copies of their second album, A Beautiful Lie, the band found themselves more than 2.7 million dollars in debt to the label, claiming they never saw any money off the album, and wanted out of their contract.
That's a story as old as the record industry. Just talk to TLC -- their album CrazySexyCool sold 11-million copies, yet they were bringing home $35k/year.
"This was a very real lawsuit. It wasn't just a headline," Leto tells Rolling Stone. "We had a very real possibility of owing a corporation 30 million dollars, of having our music and our album tied up in the courts and never seeing the light of day and our careers an our dreams shattered."
Check out the trailer below, and look for Chester Bennington of Linkin Park and STP and Brandon Boyd of Incubus.
Artifact is available now on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, Xbox Video, Sony Playstation, Cinemanow, Vudu and more.
The premise of the video, as explained by Lorde:
WE'RE ON EACH OTHER'S TEAM. this video was borne from a dream i had a few months ago about teenagers in their own world, a world with hierarchies and initiations, where the boy who was second in command had acne on his face, and so did the girl who was queen. i dreamt about this world being so different to anything anyone had ever seen, a dark world full of tropical plants and ruins and sweat. and of this world, i dreamt about tests that didn't need to be passed in order to be allowed in: sometimes the person who loses is stronger. enjoy xx
I fostered Simba for the long Thanksgiving weekend, and now he's back with Saving Pets Lives. Dude needs a home and a family! He's so sweet. He was great with my dogs and with my cat. If you'd like to meet Simba or learn more about it, get in touch with Saving Pets Lives by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can visit him at the South Houston Animal Shelter. 207 Michigan, South Houston, Tx 77587.

I'm dying over the cute. GAH. It's so freakin' adorable.
The tiny little monkey hand! It's killing me! He's like, "Crunch them, dude! Crunch, crunch, crunch. No! Keep crunching!"
And from Gawker:
YouTube Comment of Note: "The monkey should teach this human how to turn his cell phone to the side."
The problem is that people don't always get satire. There's an entire blog devoted to mocking Facebook users who think stories from The Onion (a satirical news site) are real. And I get it! It took me years to figure out that Stephen Colbert wasn't for real. But 'stop and kiss'? That one's pretty obvious, no?

Screengrab - Literally Unbelievable
Jon Stewart and I agree. There is no War on Christmas.
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)
