People Who Need Serious Help
What with the upcoming wedding (my brother's), I've been a tad frayed at the seams. I leave Wednesday, incidentally, so no blogging for about a week. Lately, though, I've run across a couple of articles that have restored my faith in myself. As an act of humanity, I'm going to share them with you:
1. The Disneyland Zombie Fan Army
Now, I grew up near Anaheim in Southern California, I've been going to Disneyland since I was two or three (that would be the late sixties), and I remember The Way It Used To Be. I like to go about once a year. In short, I am a fan of Disneyland - but I've never seen anything like this. Opening lines of the article:
Benji Breitbart doesn�t go to Disneyland every day.
�I wasn�t here last Thursday,� he says as we walk down Main Street. �I usually come six days a week.�
2. The Man Who Kept a Pony In His Bathroom
A Danish man who was inspired by a children's fantasy movie about a pony which lives in a flat has incurred the wrath of his neighbours - after attempting to copy the film.
Police say they were stunned to find a Shetland pony in Palle Brinch's apartment after his neighbours alerted authorities about a "rumbling ceiling and a manure-like stench".
There's not much you can add to that, really...
