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!)

Look, I realize that some college students weren't even alive in 1994 (the year of Kurt Cobain's death), but it's a pretty well known fact that a) he is dead and b) the band is defunct. Right?
One Virginia Tech college student was clueless, though, and sent a letter to Sub Pop, Nirvana's former label, asking if they could get a video from Nirvana with the band saying something like this:
What’s up Virginia Tech? This is Nirvana! Just wanted to wish you guys a Happy Homecoming Week and good luck at the game this Saturday. LETS GO HOKIES!
Can you imagine Kurt Cobain every seriously saying GO HOKIES? Like... seriously? Someone at the label was pretty amused and has a mountain more patience than I could ever hope to have, because they've said they "dressed up and obliged" and the video will be coming soon. (Gawker, Photos: Sub Pop)
