Things took a strange turn this week in terms of what’s buzzworthy. The list includes a dog named Banana Joe, Valentine’s Day puns, and a weird dance craze. I blame all the sugar we’re consuming.
A dog with possibly the best name ever was crowned Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York this week. Banana Joe is a tiny black Affenpinscher, who looks a little bit like a miniature Chewbacca. He beat out a Germain pointer, fox terrier, American foxhound, bichon frise, Portuguese water dog, and old English sheepdog to secure his win. I have a tiny dog myself, so I think he’s a cutie!
Happy Valentine's Day! To keep you awake through your sugar coma, here are some cute kids discussing the holiday.
The following is a guest post from Rainier Fuclan.
It can be difficult to make Valentine's Day plans, especially for an amateur Casanova like myself. For years, I was the guy scurrying around the mall on February 14th, desperately searching for a Valentine's gift for my girl. Then, after finding some trinket to throw in a gift bag, I’d frantically dial restaurants and flip through local entertainment magazines improvising a desperate last-minute date plan.
As men around the country can attest, last-minute Valentine's Day plans often result in a one-way trip to the dog house. So, for the last few years, I let the NFL give me a hand in planning the perfect Valentine's Day.
Stay with me, I’m about to make a lot of sense.
Like most of you, when the Big Game rolls around on February 3rd, I'll be parked on the couch anticipating the final hits, picks and scores of the season. But rather than sleeping on that same couch post-Valentine's, I assign myself small tasks to accomplish throughout the day and knock out all of my Valentine’s planning without breaking a sweat.
All you need to remember are a few key times.
Happy Valentine's Day! It's a day of love...or depression, depending on whether you're single and happy about it or not. Regardless, we all hope that you have a wonderful day. (And if you don't, just remember that tomorrow there will be tons of half-price chocolate available.)
