Water-retention Wednesday, my gingersnaps. How is hump day treating you so far?
Sometimes there are lines you just don't cross. Like eating another woman's cookies. One Florida woman was arrested after finding her roommate ate her Thin Mints. She woke up the roommate and fought with her re: the missing cookies. I don't know about you, but I kind of side with the lady who lost her cookies. You don't mess with a girl's cookies. Especially if they're Thin Mints. Roomie only got what was coming to her.
Deepest Congratulations on Alyssa Milano and her husband Dave Bugliari, who are expecting their first baby! Alyssa is one of my favorite people on the planet. Not only because she is incredibly kind and positive toward all her fans on Twitter, but also because she tries to make the world a better place through philanthropy. Just for example, she gave up her last two birthdays, to try to raise money for Charity Water, an organization I'm particularly fond of. She ended up raising a total of $132,119 for Charity Water, which funded wells for 25 communities in Ethiopia, and now provide clean water for 6,605 people. With her big heart for people in this world, I know she will make a wonderful mother. (not to mention the child will be blessed genetically)
Newsflash... Jennifer Aniston and Justin Bieber just got haircuts!!! Gosh I wish it was this big if a deal when I got my haircut. Okay, not really. Justin Bieber is selling off his few inches of hair that was cut off, for charity. Seriously, what can they do with 1-2 inches of Bieber hair? Other than making a new rug for John Travolta.
I don't know if this is a current deal or not, but I'd like to meet an Oreo pizza. Double toppings please.
And now it's time for... DAMN YOU AUTOCORRECT!!!
When they made the Nimbus 2000, they never intended it to be used this way. Silly Muggle.
And that's all the time I have for today. Take a look at your coworkers today and consider which one you'll trip if the zombies come. Until tomorrow, here's something you should know...
Experts believe that the global wild tiger population has fallen below 3,000, which is less than 3% of the total a century ago! In India, some famous tiger reserves have been completely depleted! There are around 5,000 captive tigers in China alone, with an additional 8,000 worldwide. The Chinese banned the trade of tiger products in 1993, but the demand for illegal parts still remains high and continues to drive the poaching industry there.
The tiger problem has gotten so severe that Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has taken an interest. In an effort to help tigers Russian researchers are tagging and actively monitoring the country’s tiger population. You can even track the movements of a tagged tiger on Putin’s website.
Check out this New York Times column to learn more about the threats facing the world's tiger population and don't forget to check out Putin's site to check where his tiger's been.
