I found this quite interesting.
Technically, people are not being told sex with an animal is LEGAL in these states, but rather there are no DIRECT laws banning it like there are when it comes to same-sex marriages.
I know you can get nabbed for animal cruelty and things like that if you're caught, but to think no lawmaker in these states has pushed for a BESTIALITY BAN like they have with same-sex marriages is absolutely profound.
Worse, is that FL is one of them!!!

I'm not from a military family. I don't know anyone who's been shipped off to war. And if I'm being honest with myself, whenever I see anything about the war or IED explosions, or suicide bombers, I immediately change the channel.
I have thus far felt so detached from it all. It's just always been something happening around me.
After watching this video, I feel like I connected. It's amazing what these families are enduring while their loved ones are away and it's best depicted in their reactions when they come home.
I'm warning you now...you will cry...(I balled my eyes out)...but, you'll run home and hug your kids, spouses, siblings or whomever means most to you. It puts it ALL into perspective. Have an amazing weekend! xoxo
Pink may have a few 'harder' songs out there from her early days, but after her Philly concert, she showed she clearly has a 'softer' side.
Check out this video of Pink stopping MID-SONG during her Philly concert because she noticed a little girl was crying in the audience.
Supposedly, there were a few drunk girls fighting behind the little girl and it startled her.
Pink came to her rescue:
Olivia Wilde, actress and seemingly very down to earth, cool chick, was on Jay Leno this week.
She was promoting an upcoming film she's in, "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone".
But, she took the chance to address an issue she's been having with Justin Bieber fans!!??
You see, she tweeted something earlier this month about this pic that surfaced of shirtless Justin Bieber celebrating his birthday in London.
She Tweeted, "Bieber, put your f--king shirt on. (Unless you lost all your shirts in a fire in which case my condolences and please purchase a new shirt.)"
Well, in true Belieber fashion, the fans freaked out! She received, according to her, about 35 million tweets bashing her and defending him!!!
Personally, I'd be somewhat frightened to fight back against fanatical, adolescent girls with an infatuation. I'd probably have sent out an apology tweet or something to smooth it over...especially if I got death threats.
But, NOT Olivia Wilde!!!
She laughed the whole thing off and even 'poked the bear' by reading some of the hilariously immature, hateful tweets from Bieber fans.
Check out the video here:
I have never talked so much about sugar or diabetes in my entire life. No one in my family has it and I don't know anyone with it.
Then, one day, thanks to that failed 1-hour glucose screening I took last week (a routine prenatal test), I've been 100% consumed with SUGAR! Sugar, sugar, sugar!
It was all I thought about all day every day and in a week I researched enough to write a thesis paper on sugary foods & diabetes!
I thought, "Could my poor eating habits have caused me to develop gestational diabetes, endangering my baby???"
I felt terrible and immediately started cutting sugar out of my diet. I would tell Mike, "Do you know how much sugar that soda has in it???" (I'm sure he loved that)
Well, after enduring the most torturous 3-hour-long glucose test Monday, (they had to draw blood 4 times in just a few hours!) I have good news!!!!
In the case of Laura Diaz & gestational diabetes, Maury (or my doctor) told me, "You are NOT the Father!"...
I'm so happy and almost in a euphoric state today. The picture above is just a joke because in all honesty, I'm glad this happened.
It really opened my eyes to how much crap I was eating and how good I felt when I started being more aware of my sugar intake. While I'm happy I can safely indulge in that 'Ben & Jerry's' pregnancy craving, I don't plan on going back to the way I was and I feel blessed to have been given this chance.
Anyway, thanks for listening to my moaning and melodramatics along the way! Besos xoxo
PS: Today marks the 7-months pregnant mark!!! Less than 12 weeks to go people! Woo hoooooo
