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!)

Marte Dalelv after being pardoned today. (Getty Images)
The short version of the story is this... Marte Dalelv is a Norwegian who was on a business trip to Dubai for her company, Al Mana Interiors, owned by Janet Jackson's husband, Wissam Al Mana. While there, she was allegedly raped by her boss. She was sentenced to 16-months in prison for "having extramarital sex, drinking alcohol without permission and giving false statement to the police." (Don't worry, she was pardoned today, hence the big smile in the above photo. And so was her rapist!)

And then... she got a letter from Mr. Jackson Al Mana that "her contract was terminated due to 'unacceptable and improper behavior'." Mkay. I am giving that dude major side-eye right now.
You can read the entire letter (in English!) on this fancy Norwegian website.
