I grew up in South Haven, Michigan.  Gotta love the lakeshore! Still feel a yearning for the beach, pretty much daily.  Moved to Grand Rapids to go to Calvin College. Fell in love with GR and have been here since! (Go Beer City, USA!)   Big fan of crime TV, the '90s (scrunchies! Saved By the Bell!), my own rude and feisty cat, the beach (you may have thought I covered that already, but I really really love it, OK?), reading,  people watching, drinking on patios, playing the most inappropriate cards in Cards Against Humanity, and my dear, dear family.

Florida State University Student Saved from Gunman’s Shooting By Book Stopping Bullet

Early Thursday, a shooter opened fire at Florida State University's main library in Tallahassee, Fla., wounding three people. The gunman was shot and killed by police.

Amid that terror and confusion, one student, Jason Derfuss, narrowly escaped harm. He didn't realize later, until he checked the contents of his book bag, how close he had come to being shot.

Bill Cosby 1969 Stand-Up Bit on Drugging Girls’ Drinks [Audio]

Hannibal Buress' stand-up routine in which he called Bill Cosby a rapist seems to have driven Cosby underground. Cosby has been cancelling appearances and had a really awkward interview on NPR in which he refused to speak when the line of questioning turned to sexual assault allegations.

Buress' stand-up is not the only one bringing attention to these allegations. A bit from Cosby's own stand-up routine from 1969 has surfaced about drugging girls' drinks.

The Mansons are Registered at Bed Bath & Beyond

By now you've probably heard the joyful news! Charles Manson is getting married! Oh happy day!

Yeah. So. Somehow Manson obtained a marriage license to tie the knot with one Ms. Afton Elaine Burton, a 26-year-old who, for the past 9 years has been advocating for his freedom.

And anyway, if you'd like to send the happy couple a wedding present, you can. Because they are registered at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Grand Rapids Will Fine You if You Don’t Clear Your Sidewalks

I'm not big on shoveling snow. Well, who is really? Anyone who says they love it is a liar. Just like people who say they "loooovvve" winter. Liars. Stop it.

Anyway. I don't even own a proper shovel. What do I do when snow piles up in my driveway? I attempt to drive over it. Or I get stuck. No, it's not a great system. But man, I really hate shoveling. Good thing I'm not a property owner then. Because in Grand Rapids they can  fine you if you don't shovel your sidewalks. I'd owe, like, so much money.

Angry Cat Obessively Flicking Paper Must Have a Case of the Mondays [Video]

Not only is it Monday (which sucks enough by itself), but it's also cold and gross out in West Michigan. So, if you're in a pissed off mood today, I think that's completely understandable. You can probably relate to this cat then. He's so full of rage he can't stop, won't stop, flicking the crap out of this piece of paper.
