News Roundup! End of the Year Edition

New Year's Festivities
- It's 2006 in Australia, and they had the fireworks show to prove it. Gotta love pyros, ♥. Anyway, this article... is hilariously written, from a journalistic standpoint anyway. It's like a news roundup of the festivities within itself, except it's so shallow and it has this sentence: "It is not known what why he was on the roof."

Jigga What, Now?
- Guy gets shot in the forehead, doesn't notice until next morning. No, for real.

It's a dog eat Foot/Tainted Food World.
- Officer Sustained Several "Ankle Bites" when Attacked by a Pack of Angry Chihuahuas. If I ever even saw a pack of chihuahuas, I think I'd die laughing.

- Ok, this is actually serious because I am very serious about pets. 23 Dogs Dead and 18 Ill from tainted pet food. If you use Diamond Pet Food Company products, you may want to consider a switch and a check up for your pet. Additional updates can be found here.

Politics
- Activist Teen changes name to "KentuckyFriedCruelty.com". Probably as a result of HopelessFanaticismRox.com. No really though, go there, and tell me that you can actually restrain yourself from laughing when you notice the "Buy your Pam Anderson video today" amidst pleas for the rights of chickens... and I'll reward you somehow.

- Donald Trump may run for NY Governer. Please God, no. This is most emphatically not a reality TV show we need.

Science
- ATTENTION MEN: British scientists are attempting to answer the dreaded question: "Does this make my butt look big?"

A & E - aka The real News
- "Lost" DUIs: The Arraignment - I HAVE MORE REASON TO HATE ANA LUCIA NOW! *bounces with glee*

- Depressing article about the "final" Harry Potter book, accompanied with the worst picture of J.K. Rowling ever. *le sigh* I really want the books to go on forever.

Hee!
I'm probably going to write a recap today or tomorrow. :)

It's weird how excited I get about that. No one even reads them, I'm sure.

Re: Hee!
I do, sometimes at least.

So how have the holidays been going? I am woefully behind on LJ.

Re: Hee!
The've been alright. Nothing really spectacular. It's actually been a really anticlimactic end of this year.

I dont even have plans for tonight.

How bout you?

Re: Hee!
Pretty much the same, really. I was hoping to get up to the Cities sometime this past week, but haven't really had the chance- think I'll just buy a drink to celebrate my first legal new year's and call it a night.

Re: Hee!
N'awwww... you're all legal. I still have four months to wait.

I hope you have fun tonight. I think I'm going to watch movies with a friend. :)

Re: Hee!
Sounds like an excellent plan to me. And hey, I'll buy you booze any time, ;-p

Re: Hee!
Huzzah! You need to come up to the cities sometime. With your LOST dvds. And my Invasion eps on dvr. It'll be a great time.

Re: Hee!
My sister's DVDs, actually. :-P

Sadly, except for passing through on the way back up to school, the next time I'd be in town would likely be mid-to-late february...

Re: Hee!
That is quite sad. *sniffle*

Keep me posted, though?

Re: Hee!
Will do, definitely. There's a very very slight chance I might be in the Cities for a while on the second, and if I will be, you shall most assuredly hear of it.
