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

Ironically, I couldn't actually find a pic of Jon Gosselin in an Ed Hardy t-shirt through the photo service we use. (So take that, Ed Hardy!) Seriously though, Mr. Hardy blames Jon Gosselin for people moving on from wearing his designs.
“That Jon Gosselin thing was the nail in the coffin,” says the actual Ed Hardy. “That’s what tanked it. Macy’s used to have a huge window display with Ed Hardy, and it filtered down and that’s why Macy’s dropped the brand.”
Way harsh, Tai.
Meet Alex Minksy, a war vet who lost his leg in Afghanistan. He's got a much cushier job now as a model. Well done, sir. Well done.
Many of us are sick of seeing the same 6-foot-tall, 100-pound woman in every single Victoria’s Secret ad.
But some of you are doing something about it.
A group of activists in San Francisco called “About Face” brought attention to the lack of body diversity in VS ads by showing up in front of the store in their skivvies.
They held signs that said, “Real Body, Real Love” and “I pledge to love my body.” Good for them!
I get the annoyance. I really do. Every time I go to a fast food joint and they actually get my order right (which is really, really rare), I get the urge to send them one of those fruit bouquets to say thanks and congratulations on your competence. On the other hand... dealing with irate, irrational customers like this jackass is way above a fast food worker's pay grade. (Gawker)
Before I show you the clip, I want to point out that she's 19. What are they feeding people in Utah that make teenagers look like full on thirtysomethings? Crikey.

Get ready to cover your eyes. This is seriously painful to watch. Big kudos to Giuliana Rancic for keeping a straight face during this disaster.
My dad constantly says, "What did she say?" and then looks around for laughs. We have to remind him it's, "That's what she said." #DadQuotes— Anna Cheng (@annabcheng) June 14, 2013

Let's take a look at what's getting their panties in a bunch.
Not only do I fail to see the problem, I could also really, really go for a salad right now. UNF. Here's a little more of the zesty dude.
