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!)

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.
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)
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...
