Friday newsflash!

Friday is here! 1. Pac-Man turns 30 this week! The classic arcade game was conceived in Japan 30 years ago! The circley shape of the Pac-Man was inspired by a partially eaten pizza. I wish that when I'm drunk on pizza I think of amazing ideas and invent fun games. I just get heartburn. One amazing thing is that it took 8 people 15 months to program the original game! It blows my mind how far we've come with technology. Today the Google homepage has a little game to play there for old time sake. Fun. Distraction. 2. An Arab-American won the Miss USA pageant. Rima Fakih, or Miss Michigan, was born in Lebanon. There is a possibility that she is the first Arab-American, Muslim and immigrant to win the pageant. It's only "a possibility" because pageant records aren't detailed enough to know for sure. I find it hilarious that the people in charge there have so much AquaNet in their brain to write a couple of things down about each of the winners. Nonetheless, congrats to Rima! I love when our melting pot of a nation has something good to show for itself. But, there are rumors that she is already romantically linked to Doug Reinhardt, Paris Hilton's skanky ex. She also may or may not have been stripper in the past. Nonetheless, this is a victory and I hope she doesn't totally trash out. 3. Jeans Diapers. Now, your little bundle of joy can have Apple Bottom Jeans too! Huggies has new diapers that are designed to look like jeans! I can't decide if I think this is cute or creepy. Its sort of like when people put clothes (and sunglasses, and sandals) on dogs. They will only be available during the summer, so babies can stay cool and only have to wear a stylish diaper. I'm a big fan of making a fashion statement out of an item that ultimately gets full of poop. Sounds pretty genius to me. I so wish they were bedazzled. 4. Some office in England implemented an idea called "Naked Friday" to boost productivity. The idea is for people to no longer have inhibitions and self-consciousness at work. Supposedly once fear is out of the way, people are more happy, productive and work stronger as a team. There is no way this is true. I firmly believe that if everyone around me was naked I'd be way too distracted by the cheeks and boobs to do anything else but stare. Also, there are lots of people in this office that may be hiding some weird things under their clothes. I think I'm against this. 5. Quote of the Week:
"I love all animals. I have a fascination with fish, birds, whales - sentient life - insects, reptiles. I actually choose the way I eat according to the way animals have sex. I think fish are very dignified with sex. So are birds. But pigs, not so much. So I don't eat pig meat or things like that. I eat fish and fowl." -- Crazyman Nicolas Cage
What the hell? I don't even know what to say about this one. I also don't know how fish or fowl have sex. Maybe I'm the idiot, but do you know? Aren't they egg layers? YouTube, here I come. 6. A fabulous new line of purses has come out....called Schitbags. Pause to absorb the fabulousness of that. Why would anyone, ever, ever buy something called a "schitbag?" I assume someone foreign is involved with this...They aren't even cute. Who is in charge of this and what are they thinking? Happy Weekend! I have no plans and it feels FABULOUS.
