extra extra

if you can believe it, i'm posting about something other than myself. i know, i know. but pull your jaws off the floor, because today has been a ca-RA-zy news day and i wanted to share. as someone who reads and and, let's face it, religiously, i consider myself a pretty news-aware person, and i sometimes feel like a 'dumb american' that my attention is drawn first to the human interest stories rather than the hard-hitting, need-to-know news. but today, it seems as though the human interest stuff has officially crossed over into need-to-know territory. allow me to elaborate:

making friends, the southern way:

local woman experiences waking nightmare:

not the reason i'd want to be in the guiness book:

assholes still exist:,8599,1925607,00.html

am i right? crazy crazy crazy!

incidentally, i think i would make an excellent headline-writer. and, yeah, i just went ahead and made this post a little bit about me. you had to see that one coming.

*it should be noted that at least one million exclamation points would appear at the end of each of the above events, if i had the time and patience for all that punctuation.
