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 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!)

On a bad date? Need to a quick exit plan? There's an app for that!
eHarmony has an app that'll get you out of a date, which is way better than suffering through the misery. The other person will still probably know that you're a giant faker, but hey, at least you're trying.
There are more than a few "fake phone call" apps already out there, says Andrew Liszewski at Gizmodo, but eHarmony's Bad Date Rescue app goes "beyond the call of duty" in a number of ways. First, you'll be able to choose precisely when the call arrives, whether that be in 3 seconds, 1 minute, or 5 minutes. Then it lets you specify the emergency: Your mom calls to tell you your sister just went into labor, for example, or your next-door neighbor rings to tell you your apartment's flooded.
It seriously looks like a real phone call with a picture popping up on the screen and a voice on the other end. And it's free. I love it.
