This just in:
A woman is suing a hotel because she claims her teenage daughter got pregnant from the pool; but to be fair, they don't have a lot of pools in Alaska, so Sarah Palin might be confused.
President Obama's diplomatic trip to Russia went well. Of course it's not a tough act to follow when the guy before you thought Moscow was a type of cattle. And he couldn't stop giggling whenever anyone said "Putin."
In Illinois, four people have been arrested for digging up corpses and then selling the empty cemetery plots. They got the idea from watching the Washington Nationals at the trade deadline.
Since you asked:
You know what you don't want on Twitter and Facebook? You don't want to follow people who are really, really poor, but especially really, really rich. The poor isn't as much of a problem because they don't have computers and, if they do, they don't have the time to be on facebook.
But the really rich are even more depressing. I write that I am all excited about grilling some ribs and watching the Cubs after surfing and they talk about flying out to Cannes and having dinner with the Prince of Monaco.
There is this one woman I am friends with on facebook from college who apparently married into near European royalty. She posts are things like;
"We flew to Stockholm and picked out a really great new polo pony. We're going to name him Lars."
"This is the 45-foot yacht we keep in Japan, we named it: Dingy II ."
Or how about;
"Today we flew to the Bahamas to pick up the kids from camp."
I pick up the kid from camp at the elementary school. I'm pretty sure it's not in the Bahamas.
No lie, I wrote about my awesome mountain bike ride in the beautiful rockies, but I fell right on river boulders/rocks. She comments she was on their Hummer going through the Swiss Alps and they had a flat.
Yeah, almost the exact same thing.
