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

It does look badass, right?
This is one of two mirrored rooms that are a part of an exhibit right now at NYC's MOMA. Visitors are allowed 40 seconds in each room, and the wait has been at around six hours.
The exhibit is for artist Yayoi Kusama, an 84-year-old from Japan who is currently taking a little vacation from home at a psychiatric center. For reals. (Huff Post)
I am guilty of SO MANY of these. Going shoeless? Yep. Reclining my seat. Hell yes, they put the function there so I'm using it. Rolling a suitcase up the aisle? Um, isn't that why it has wheels??! Read the full top 20 list at CNN.
1. Kicking, bumping, or shoving the seat in front of them.
2. Reclining their seat.
3. Hogging the bathroom.
4. Taking off their shoes and going barefoot.
5. Neglecting their personal hygiene before flying.
6. Shoving past you to get off the plane.
7. Rolling huge suitcases up the aisle.
8. Playing games without the sound turned off.
9. Coughing, sneezing, and spreading germs.
10. Poaching an empty middle seat by putting their stuff on it, and their bag underneath it.
Except for Ed Sheeran. No disrespect to the man, but how did he end up the list??
Now let's watch them have a go at the word 'supple'.
These kids kick ass. And so does their teacher!
A 13-year-old kid in Iowa who has Asperger's and ADHD has been getting bullied, which has included the bullies uploading videos of them hitting and teasing him. Terrible, right?
Not to the parents of the bullies and other people in the community. The father of one teen who uploaded videos said, "I would say three-fourths of this stuff he brings on himself and and probably a fourth of it is bullying that shouldn't be going on."
Shocking that a person who condones bullying would be raising a bully. Shocking, indeed.

People will sell anything to make a buck. In this case, Axl Rose's ex-wife is selling off a bunch of her ex-husband's crap.
From one of the letters:
“I just can’t bear this life — so I must drown my sorrows. The name William proves too much to bear, and now in my moment of despair, I have become frustrated + confused!”
Rose then signs it, “Think of me when you wipe yo’ ass.”

Trey Radel, a freshman member of Congress from Florida, voted in favor of a bill that would have authorized states to withhold food stamps from applicants who didn't submit to a drug test.
And then a month later, he was busted for trying to buy cocaine from an undercover DEA agent. (But it's cool, because he isn't on food stamps. Amiright?)
I'm getting so much schadenfreude from this. (Gawker)
The man in the video was arrested for disorderly conduct. Apparently disagreeing and saying as much makes you a deviant.
